The study, which examines current research, draws from two theories: cultural differentiation and adaptive structuration
. In addition, a cohesive model for practitioners is proposed.

Technology Diffusion, Appropriation and Adaptive Structuration
The author refers to the adaptive structuration
concept of spirit or to the way that technologies lead people to act on and use them (Poole & DeSanctis, 1990).
Theory (AST) offers a framework for understanding how social media are creating a "technology-triggered organizational change" in fire departments (DeSanctis & Poole, 1994, p.
This question bases itself on the available literature on three areas: (1) online social networking sites, (2) the adaptive structuration
theory, and (3) virtual teams.
Recalling Giddens' (1979) theory of structuration, the adaptive structuration
theory (AST) suggests that users of communication technology choose to adapt either a technology's role to the needs of the team, or to adapt the team's structure to employ the technology in an amicable and conducive way (DeSanctis & Poole, 1994; Cho & Lee, 2008; Timmerman & Scott, 2006).
Topics covered include the mobile health (m-health) and e-health models for patient information systems, diagnostic cost reduction using artificial neural networks, a case study of HISI adoption using an adaptive structuration
theory approach, physicians' acceptance of computerized physician order entry, decentralization of the Greek national telemedicine system, the use of pocket PCs for nurses' shift reports and patient care, and the impact of certification on healthcare information technology use, among other topics.
DeSanctis, Gerardine, and Marshall Scott Poole 1994 'Capturing the complexity in advanced technology use: Adaptive structuration
I believe that I have initiated six distinctively new ideas: the multiple sequence modelling in decision-making (Poole, 1983); the application of structuration theory on organizations (Poole, Seibold, & McPhee, 1985); adaptive structuration
theory (Poole & DeScantis, 1990; DeSanctis & Poole, 1994); process theory (Van de Ven & Poole, 1995; Poole, 2007); multiple approaches to managing paradox (Poole & Van de Ven, 1989); and more recently, a synthesis of groups and networks.
The proposed research framework will (1) integrate two predominate theories in group related research: task-technology fit theory (Zigurs and Buckland, 1998) and adaptive structuration
theory (DeSanctis and Poole, 1994), and (2) determine what GVT member knowledge, skills, and abilities of GSS are required to improve the level of effectiveness in GVT environments.
