The inception of 'third wave' Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has the potential of enabling innovative e-working practices in organisations beyond the traditional home teleworking. This paper conceptualises the new e-working practices adopted by 'lead users' through grounded theory analysis. The findings suggest that lead users have adopted five different types of e-working strategies to help them optimise their work and travel efficiency. This study also found several barriers, such as organisational culture and employee preferences, which may reduce e-working. The authors hope that by conceptualising the various types of e-working practices, they will provide researchers and practitioners with the clarity needed to apply these concepts to their research work.
