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).
