Abstract and Keywords

This chapter describes various ways in which the organizational context can influence or be influenced by cognitive work. Using the work system model of Smith and Carayon, we describe ways by which decisions made by organizational leaders and decision makers (e.g., work schedules, purchasing and implementation of tools and technologies) can affect cognitive work and demands, which may have negative consequences on workers such as job stress and mental and physical health problems. We also discuss the linkages between human cognition and organizational change and emergence.

Keywords: organizational design, job stress, job design, cognitive work, cognitive demands
