The way we work is changing because new information and communication technologies (ICTs) provide new ways to communicate, coordinate, and collaborate. This introductory chapter discusses these changes and why they matter. It provides a brief historical sketch of how ICTs have changed our work, then goes into some depth about how digital ICTs in particular have impacted work in the early 21st century, laying the ground for all-edge adhocracies to flourish.

Keywords:   information technologies, communication technologies, communication, coordination, collaboration
