Applying Structuration in the Organization

Giddens' Structuration theory provides a useful vocabulary for describing the evolving media ecology of the workplace. In this lecture/discussion, based in part of Chapter 3 of Taylor, Groleau, Heaton, Van Every's (2001) "The Computerization of Work: A Communication Perspective", we will examine how patterns of media use in organizations are constructed by the people who, given a specific set of responsibilities, need to get work done.

On one side of a 3x5 card name and/or describe a medium of communication/communication system, not in evidence in this scenario, which, had it been available, would have improved this event in some manner. How would it have improved it? What, if anything, would it have displaced?
