Using the Actor Network Theory (ANT) in three project teams to explore the relation between learning activities and “networking” activities deploy a longitudinal and qualitative study. Findings indicate that coordination as a dynamic, socio-material, heterogeneous “constellation” characterized by ongoing learning, transformations, and reconfigurations during “controversies.” In addition, “constellation” of coordination mechanisms affects the capacity of actors to create and share knowledge.
