Learning by negotiation – Implementing a journal management system


This study investigates how an international academic journal invests in an information system. Following the criticism that learning in an organisation is not conflict free the study sketches the decision making around the information system as a series of negotiations. The case shows that during these negotiations, the information system played the role of a boundary object that resulted in the editorial team understanding the system in different ways than previously. These negotiations paved the way for learning in the organisation, with the information system highlighting differences among the participants involved with the journal.
