ORG 726 WEEK 3 Sociotechnical Systems

Sociotechnical systems theory views technology as more than an independent variable; rather it emphasizes the reciprocal interrelationship between technology and the social aspects of the work environment. The principles and approaches to sociotechnical systems theory provide a necessary framework for incorporating technological change into an organization (Applebaum, 1997).

Write a 1,200- to 1,500-word paper assessing the principles and approaches of sociotechnical systems theory and work approaches in your selected organization. Focus your assessment on the following perspectives:

  • Historical Perspective: establishing how management styles evolved to support and encourage a sociotechnical approach
  • Stages of Innovation: explaining how Rogers’ diffusion of innovation informs the implementation of, or lack thereof, sociotechnical systems
  • Levels of Performance: based on the concepts introduced in Rummler and Brache (2013)

Include at least five references to support your position. A minimum of three references must originate from scholarly, peer-reviewed sources.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
