Abstract: This paper applies two concepts, ‘knowledge structuring’ and ‘knowledge domination,’ to a real life work situation. The purpose is to explore, analyze and discuss what happens when management interferes into the activities of a knowledge worker in a specific organizational setting by computerizing a key document. Exercising knowledge is delicate and complex. This study makes visible how some parts of performing anesthesia become structured and re-structured when the anesthesia patient record is transformed into a knowledge management system at the same time as someone or something influences how that structuring takes place.
