Avatud kontorid jms koostöökontorid on ka Eesti (avalikes) organisatsioonides levinud ja levimas. Siinviidatud avalikus levis olev uurimustöö leidis oma koha põhjusel, et koostööruumi mõtestamine on midagi sellist, mis ilmselt väga paljusid võib puudutada nii tööl kui kodus. Lisaks võib tekst võiks huvi pakkuda ka tudengitele või uurijatele, kel võib olla tuleb kokku puutuda kirjandusülevaate koostamisega. Siin, metoodika osas, on see kenasti avatud.

Kontekstist:

Collaboration has become the ‘cornerstone for the creation and the enhancement of the 21st century workplace’ (Marshall, 1995, p. 15) since it boosts innovation, consensus and learning through knowledge sharing. To sustain collaboration, companies are increasingly experimenting with collaborative workplaces (CWs).

Uurimustöö eesmärk:

the study focuses on how contradictions operate in CWs through the tensions experienced by their users. Specifically, it explores the tensions alimenting such contradictions, tying their development and outcomes to the daily actions and interactions of CW users— both managers and employees.

Pinged:

Indeed, everyday life in the CW is grounded in responding to tensions that stem from the incompatibilities between organizational expectations and users’ experiences. […] CW users typically react to the exposure vs privacy tensions by withdrawing from social situations. For example, they often avoid physical interactions, replacing them with digital ones (Bernstein & Turban, 2018; De Paoli et al., 2013; Wohlers & Hertel, 2018).

Kirjandusülevaate protsess:

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

this study shows that managers and employees in CWs frequently respond to tensions by enacting some approaches that deny the oppositional forces, or repress them, exacerbating the subtle inconsistencies.
