Means towards congruence
Dr Stan Karanasios
Cultural Historic Activity Theory (CHAT); Congruence; Bricolage; improvisation
Kristian’s forefront research interest is augmentation of the CHAT concept ‘congruence’. This has led to further theoretical interest in bricolage, improvisation and more recently ‘workarounds’. Grounded in the context of IT support, his project seeks to re-conceptualise how practitioners aim towards -and achieve- congruence with intent.
