Abstract

The aim of this paper is to discuss the correlation between nature of work, employment pattern and technology used, by drawing upon the everyday working practice of Information Technology (IT) expert-contractors. By focusing on the way new technologies have provided the means for redefining the overall experience of the working life, this paper intends to shed light to the way individuals act upon the "material" to generate the Information Systems (IS) solution, as well as to the subsequent coordination patterns and power relationships emerging under non-standard employment arrangements.
