The downsizing and decentralization of large corporations have led to new approaches to organization, management and internal structuring, and comparative computing plays a key role in processing and disseminating kwledge within such intelligent organizations . The development of such intelligent organizations forms the central theme of this volume. It provides an interdisciplinary assessment of the topic, emphasizing the need for effective coordination of activities and presenting the theoretical foundations of an integrated theory of coordination. The text should be of interest to scientists and practitioners in organizational research, CSCW, business and information systems, and multi-agent systems.
