Although I carried out this ethnographic study over 20 years ago, I wondered if some of the mechanisms I observed and reported, especially the variation between teams, was also observed in your work. Some of the features in the abstract suggest that this is the case, such as the interoperability of IT. I also found that leadership style made a profound difference.

it's difficult doing a virtual conference isn't it. Usually after a presentation I would seek out presenters in the break and enjoy hearing their in depth comments.
