New economy and old organizations. An introduction to the Advantages and Paradoxes brought by ICTs to the Italian Civil Courts System So called new economy seems to have a bearing on old organisations too. This paper describes an Italian E-Government Program aimed at implementing Information and Communication Technologies within a typical old organisation, the Court, and discusses some of the organisational issues raised by this innovation dynamic. Thus, the concept of Isomorphic Paradox and the flexibility/control dialectic are introduced and tested against a body of field data gathered in a set of Italian Civil Courts. The provided insights, it is stated, might prove useful in accounting for the conflicts which often arise from the implementation of E-Government policies.
