Abstract [en]

Sociotechnical Systems theory sees an organizational work system as comprised of two distinct subsystems – a technical and a social one – that influ-ence each other. Together, these subsystems determine the performance of the work system. However, it is far from clear how to define them. Alternative trends, such as the sociomaterial one, focus entirely on the relation between the social and the material. A problematic feature of both approaches is the conflation of the individual and the social. We propose an alternative approach for sociotech-nical systems thinking, based on the premise that the individual and social are distinct, however dialectically constituting each other in everyday activities.
