dc.description.abstract In this paper, I analyse how and why reducing task interdependencies and increasing information interdependencies constitute worthy strategies for managing interdependencies in the face of global-distribution of resources. The analysis establishes a relationship between spatiality and interdependencies, leading to expositions on the spatial rationales for task and information dependencies. Spatiality emerges as a predominant characteristic of task performance and information requirements. It underlines task and information as distinctive dimensions of interdependencies in distributed organising. Implications for task conceptualisation and design, for the bases of integration, and for contingencies of information processing in globally-distributed organising are drawn. en_US
