Teams are commonly celebrated as efficient and humane ways of organizing work and learning. By means of a series of in-depth case studies of teams in the United States and Finland over a time span of more than 10 years, this book shows that teams are not a universal and ahistorical form of collaboration. Teams are best understood in their specific activity contexts and embedded in historical development of work. Today, static teams are increasingly replaced by forms of fluid knotworking around runaway objects that require and generate new forms of expansive learning and distributed agency. This book develops a set of conceptual tools for analysis and design of transformations in collaborative work and learning.

Review:

'... rich in data and conceptual analysis ... admirable scholarship ...' Mike Bonner, PsycCRITIQUES

'Yrjö Engeström has produced the kind of scholarly synthesis of research on teamwork in organizational settings that social scientists have been waiting for ever since the appearance of his classic prolegomenon, 'Learning by Expanding'. It is both comprehensive in its critical and illuminating treatment of competing lines of research and theory, clear and compelling in its treatment of the work of his research team, and stimulating in its thoughts about the future of work.' Michael Cole, University of California, San Diego

Book Description:

This book analyzes the development of work teams as work itself changes. It shows that fixed and stable teams are being replaced by fluid forms of constantly changing collaboration across organizational boundaries. This is a big learning challenge and an opportunity for practitioners to redesign their work and organizations.
