The pivotal point of Morten Jakobsens’ work is to reach a deeper understanding of the interplay between actions taken by different actors in organisations and the accounting technologies they engage with in order to construct certain perceptions of reality. The motivation for this work is a concern for the lack of correspondence between the ontological and epistemological assumptions related to the employment of accounting technologies and the phenomena these technologies claim to account for.
