V irtual teams comprise an important structural component of many organizations and are particularly important in globally dispersed enterprises. This article reports an intensive study of three global virtual teams within a single organization. Using adaptive structuration theory as a template for organizing and interpreting both qualitative and(More)
This study examines the antecedents of turnover intention among information technology road warriors. Road warriors are IT professionals who spend most of their workweek away from home at a client site. Building on Moore's (2000) work on turnover intention, this article develops and tests a model that is context-specific to the road warrior situation. The(More)
Boundaries such as time, distance, organization, and culture have been a useful conceptual tool for researchers to unpack changes in the virtual work environment, moving from a dichotomous perspective that contrasts face-to-face (FTF) and virtual work to a more nuanced hybrid perspective. However, researchers may tacitly assume that all members of a virtual(More)
``Virtual'' is a potent buzzword, freely applied to many situations, with many meanings. In this exploratory study, we develop a more precise understanding of``virtual'' to describe changing work environments. Specifically, we propose a framework to classify work environments based on the type of discontinuities involved. Discontinuities are gaps or a lack(More)
Many people in the MIS ®eld have accepted the idea that attitudes affect the frequency and type of computer use but research has provided inconsistent results. This paper, therefore, explores the conditions under which attitudes can predict computer use, investigating both workers' volitional control and their knowledge of the technology. Analyses are based(More)
This paper describes a macro-level coding scheme to distinguish patterns that occur in groups using a group support system (GSS). The coding scheme has roots in adaptive structuration theory (AST) with its emphasis on how technology is appropriated or used, and discourse analysis that requires one consider the context of the larger discussion when analyzing(More)
