2. Cognitive participation The work that individuals and organisations have to go through in order to enrol individuals to engage with the new practice.
3. Collective action The work that individuals and organisations have to do to enact the new practice.
4. Reflexive monitoring The work inherent in the informal and formal appraisal of a new practice once it is in use, in order to assess its advantages and disadvantages, and which develops users’ comprehension of the effects of a practice.
