Abstract [en]

IT consulting firms increasingly work distributed with employees based in different geographic locations. In this there is a difficulty in developing and maintaining good soli- darity and togetherness. Former research indicates that organizations need to frame and comply with strategies regarding distributed work in order to be successful and competi- tive. This inquiry purpose to study the requirements needed to invent solidarity and togetherness in IT consulting firms. In this qualitative research the empirical data is gathe- red through semi-structured interviews which is complemented with relevant literature. In order to create a distinct structure a theoretical framework with focus on social processes has been designed. By using the theoretical framework concrete strategies was formulated. The essence in this inquiry’s conclusion is the comprehension of invisible values in distri- buted IT consulting firms. Invisible values refers to none-measurable aspects in the social working environment. This inquiry results in a few concrete suggestions regarding te- chnical solutions that can support the social processes in distributed organizations.
