LA PLACE D'UNE TECHNOLOGIE D'INFORMATION ET DE COMMUNICATION DANS LE PROCESSUS DE STRUCTURATION D'UNE ORGANISATION : Le cas de l'usage d'une messagerie électronique

Abstract : This work attempts to grasp the place of an information and communication technology (ICT) through the theory of structuration, evolved by Anthony Giddens. Within this framework, we studied the use of a Lotus Notes electronic mailbox inside an organization common to EDF and Gaz de France. This work is grounded on an analysis of the use of this ICT in a professional environment, on the review of its forms of distinction, and on the characterization of the ICT logics it is tied to. These phenomenons are related to the uses of mailbox as allocative resources and as a medium to authoritative resources. These activities are linked to the process of reflexive monitoring of users' actions. Studying these phenomenons led us to point out the extent of the electronic mailbox as an information container, involved in the gathering, the storage and the recovering of information, as well as the significance of these activities in the structuration process operating in the studied organisation. These phenomenons express a structural principle based on the monitoring of exchanges and information.
