  Abstract What happens when an organization requires its employees to work from home during a pandemic that needs to be managed? This research in progress article focuses on TELCOALPHA and their transition of the emergency operation centre (EOC) to be digital and distributed. A qualitative research method approach was applied and liminality has been used as lens to investigate the passage from analog to digital. Focus has been on understanding the transition and how they handled ambiguity within the organization when their crisis management moved online. The transition was successful, and two areas were identified as important to this success: 1. TELCOALPHA used IT that the staff in the crisis organization already had experience of working with prior to the Covid-19 pandemic; 2. TELCO_ALPHA ran crisis management team meetings as they would run regular business meetings. There was no new “crisis management structure” at the meetings.
