La interrelación entre cambio organizacional, tecnológico e institucional ha sido ampliamente estudiada desde diferentes teorías. Sin embargo, poco se ha explorado sobre ¿cómo con la introducción de una nueva tecnología se entrelazan las propiedades materiales de la tecnología con los arreglos sociales del contexto donde se implementan, generando cambios en las tecnologías, organizaciones e instituciones?, convirtiéndose en nuestra pregunta de investigación. El estudio parte de una revisión de teorías de cambio organizacional, institucional y tecnológico, identificando diferencias y complementariedades entre sus conceptos, generando así una propuesta teórica para analizar la interacción de actores no-humanos con las prácticas institucionalizadas de actores humanos en la implementación de tecnologías desde la Teoría Actor-Red y el Trabajo Institucional.
