I’m starting a new project tomorrow at Stanford where I’ll be completing an organizational assessment of one of our groups in ITSS (Stanford’s IT department). So, as you can probably imagine, I’ve been thinking about organizations and how people work a lot lately.

…which is how I found this:

The Center for Work, Technology and Organization (WTO) is a research center committed to basic and applied research that will help us better understand how work is changing and, hence, design more effective organizations and technologies.

It looks pretty interesting. I think I’ll request a few of their papers. I love working at Stanford!
