Kock, Ned and McQueen, Robert J. (1998): An Action Research Study of Effects of Asynchronous Groupware Support on Productivity and Outcome Quality in Process Redesign Groups. In Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, 8 (2) pp. 149-168.

We describe a study of asynchronous groupware effects on outcome quality and productivity of process redesign groups. Seven groups were studied in 2 organizations. All groups followed the same group methodology, which comprises a process redesign meta-process with 3 stages -- process definition, analysis, and redesign. The study indicates that asynchronous groupware support was perceived by group members as considerably increasing group productivity by reducing group duration and the organizational cost of groups, and by allowing members to participate in several groups at the same time. The study also indicates a slight perceived increase in group outcome quality. The causes for these results and their organizational implications are discussed.

Proceedings of the International ACM SIGGROUP Conference on Supporting Group Work 1997 November 11-19, 1997, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. pp. 29-37.

This paper presents a review of the organisational learning literature that points to process improvement (PI) groups as an appropriate tool for organisational knowledge communication. Based on that review, the impact of support provided by a class of groupware systems, e-mail conferencing (EC), on knowledge dissemination in organisations is examined in the context of PI groups. The study suggests that, overall, EC support seems to have a positive impact on knowledge dissemination in organisations, when used in combination with a group methodology for PI.
