L’adozione delle tecnologie 4.0 comporta, per molte imprese, l’attivazione di processi di riprogettazione dell’organizzazione. Su questo tema, la teoria dei sistemi sociotecnici ha proposto alcuni principi di progettazione, volti a massimizzare le prestazioni organizzative e al contempo a preservare o sviluppare la qualità del lavoro degli operatori. Attraverso l’analisi di tre imprese che hanno investito nelle tecnologie digitali e contestualmente riprogettato le loro strutture organizzative, il presente studio fornisce evidenze in merito a come i principi di progettazione elaborati dalla teoria sociotecnica vengano oggi declinati, mostrando la possibilità che questa prospettiva possa (ri)diventare centrale sia nella teoria che nelle pratiche manageriali.
