The essence of this theory is about the stability of the group vs. group changes, as well as determinism vs. free choice based on social structure. These theories focus on structures that were created and brought back through generative rules and adaptive and power sunber group members.

ADAPTIVE STRUCTURATION THEORY By Marshall Scott Poole and Gerry DeSantics (1980)

Background Theory
This theory was developed by Marshall Scott Poole and Gerry DeSantics who are interested in the concept of the theory of Anthony Giddens Structuration. This theory investigates how the use of information technology to assist and facilitate the organization's members in the decision-making process that ultimately affect the structure of the organization.

The essence of this theory is about the stability of the group vs. group changes, as well as determinism vs. free choice based on social structure. These theories focus on structures that were created and brought back through generative rules and adaptive and power sunber group members. This theory is an approach to study the role of advanced information technology in organizations changing. This theory was tested process of change from the vantage point two points, namely:
1. The type of structure presented by advanced technology,
2. The structure that actually appears in human action as those that interact with this technology.

Assumptions Theory ;
1. Ontological Assumption.
This theory is very deterministic in groups that follow a manual or structures, but they will adjust through many structural differences. Regulations always created for the group.
2. Epistemological Assumption.
This theory is based on the fact that the group in cash changed the instructions and rules. This theory focuses on the fact that the group will always be able to adjust to these changes.
3. Assumption Axiological.
This theory is loaded with value, considering the fact that the group often had to make a change for the better for themselves or in relation to particular circumstances. If the group reflect the values ​​of their members, they will be able to adjust these differences.

This theory deals with the theory of Structuration by Anthony Giddens, since the theory was developed by Poole who adapted the theory of Structuration Giddens, so we can say, the theory of Structuration Giddens is the root of this theory. Starting from the concept of Structuration Giddens, Poole interested and inspired to develop Adaptive Structuration theory which considers members of the group as an active actor.
