Summary

The past years have seen the rise of blended working practices: time- and location-independent collaboration, facilitated by seamless integration of new ICTs into individual and joint work efforts. This development creates unprecedented opportunities for enhancing worker engagement and performance, yet also introduces new potential threats. In this project, the key question is when, and for whom, blended working practices will work. We propose that the effectiveness of blended working depends on (a) the individual needs of the employee, and (b) the development of shared mental models among employees and coworkers.
