From the Paper:

The organization under study is The Market Intelligence Team (MIT) in the Consumer Americas Marketing (CAM) organization within Hewlett-Packard (HP). MIT is responsible for managing primary and secondary research projects, and disseminating research information to the larger CAM organization. The MIT is comprised of nine members that are geographically dispersed. The members of the MIT have been working together since a company-wide reorganization that took place one year previously. The reorganization was implemented as a result of a decision made by the board of directors and executive council to move the company into the twenty-first century and become more customer-focused. In addition, the reorganization was also to address that employees and customers felt that the company was losing the famed "HP way", or spirit created by founders Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard (Connolly, 2003). As a result of the re-organization several members of the MIT have job descriptions that are significantly different than the job description of the position they were hired for."
