Abstract:
Knowledge work can be defined as intellectual work performed to generate valuable information and knowledge. Since an important part of knowledge work consists of nomadic computing, the positive and negative impacts on productivity are subject to the work processes of knowledge workers. When compared to traditional ways of working. nomadic work provides greater flexibility while freeing the knowledge worker from time and place constraints. Even though nomadic work may increase knowledge workers' productivity, it may also have unintended and undesirable consequences. Thus, the identification of social consequences and threats of nomadic working with respect to the use of wireless technologies such as laptops, pockets PCs, PDAs, and cell phones was investigated in this research.
