Abstract and Keywords

Organizational change is well established as an important area of academic research. Across disciplines, from communication to sociology to management, scholars have produced a wide array of notable works examining various facets of organizational change. In recent years, however, advances in methodology and access to large data sets have opened up innovative avenues of research. This chapter examines new dynamics of organizational change, illustrated through a case study of the evolution of the news media industry in the United States. Many processes of organizational change are still based on traditional theories and established dynamics, but extant research and the present case study demonstrate that new technology and emergent patterns of communication lead to the development of new dynamics for coordination and control of information flow as organizations change over time. The chapter concludes with guidance and future directions for this evolving domain of scholarship.

Keywords: organizational change, networks, communication technology, social media, information communication technology, organizational ecology
