All the world is information and energy in flux. Increasing complexity has resulted in an accelerating pace of change over the past decades. Communications technologies (tools we use on information and data) are the primary driver of this change. Our processes (how we use these tools) have responded accordingly to accommodate the changing environment. However, it is people (the agents who use these tools, engineer new processes, and build new tools) that are the bridge between both processes and technologies. People make decisions in knowledge work. This paper wilt discus complexity, change, knowledge work and the role of POSC in the E&P industry. It is proposed that all three factors, people, technology and proces, must be in harmony and confluence with each other in order for companies doing knowledge work to realise the projected benefits of teams sharing knowledge and learning from each other.
