Focusing on workgroup tasks and communicative interactions the methodology developed in this study portrays the fine-grained, dynamic structure of the workday of members of workgroups. Major tradeoffs were found between the resources individuals need to complete their solitary work and those required to support effective communication and cooperation among workgroup members.
