dc.description.abstract A common argument is that organizations should adopt new organizational practices, such as collaboration, in order to respond to the hyper-competitive business environment. We take issue with an assumption underlying this argument that such adoption generally entails the replacement of traditional practices. We suggest, instead, that managers are more likely to be managing simultaneously both new and old organizational practices. We explore our position through an investigation of the use of remote collaboration technologies in film production. In our study of US, UK and Australian film production houses we identify seven organizational dualities which characterize remote collaborations: creative work/routines, freedom/constraint, trust/control, artistic excellence/cost effectiveness, collaboration/competition, emotional/rational and closeness/remoteness. One side of each relationship represents organizational practices commonly associated with traditional forms of organizing, while the other represents those practices commonly associated with new forms of organizing. The coexistence of these dualities adds support to our position that new organizational forms are not replacing traditional forms but rather co-exist with, and become incorporated into, remolded traditional forms. en_US
