Abstract

Examined the nature of learning and innovative work accomplishment by team members who are geographically dispersed. 70 members of 7 business and project development teams completed interviews concerning development objectives, types of knowledge used during development activities, the nature of knowledge-intensive interactions, the use of different information technologies, and norms of site knowledge sharing. Results show that subjects (Ss) located in the same site shared priorities and approaches to work that transcended their functional groups. Ss more easily recognized and applied locally situated knowledge to a team problem; remotely situated knowledge was difficult for Ss to recognize as relevant to a problem.
