The development and coordination of managerial devices to help businesses cope with the numerous challenges they face have been the subject of many empirical analyses in recent years. This books draws from these studies to answer the question of how to coordinate a team in extreme environments. Embracing a practice-based perspective, it identifies work practices and technological uses that improve coordination within teams. Organizations need to know how to support the coordination of teams that evolve in highly changing, uncertain and risky contexts. Beyond reviewing current literature on the analysis of coordination in the field, the author draws on military case studies and illustrations to offer readers practical ways to implement devices that facilitate coordination within teams.
