ISD as Folding Together Humans & IT [chapter]

Larry Stapleton
2002 Information Systems Development  
In this context, it is evident that sensemaking provides a theoretical basis for an ISD theory which enables researchers to weave local, human issues into the deployment of IT artefacts, whilst allowing  ...  TOWARDS AN ISD THEORY OF HUMAN-TECHNICAL HYBRIDS The theory of sensemaking can be co-opted into Latour's vision of the humanmachine hybrid. This requires a series of steps.  ...

Information Systems Development (ISD) in Complex Settings as Interlocking Spirals of Sense-Making [chapter]

Larry Stapleton
1999 Evolution and Challenges in System Development  
Sensemaking is then proposed in the second section in the context of these philosophical positions, indicating how sense-making includes an interpretivist perspective but also emphasises action and response  ...  The framework employs the metaphor of a triple spiral as a means by which Weick's sense-making concepts can be applied to ISD activities.  ...  The author also wishes to thank Professor Ciaran Murphy of University College Cork for his continued help and guidance in this work.  ...

Information systems development as emergent socio-technical change: a practice approach

Luis F Luna-Reyes, Jing Zhang, J Ramón Gil-García, Anthony M Cresswell
2005 European Journal of Information Systems  
Based on data from a detailed case analysis of an ISD project, the paper depicts the ISD process as an emergent and dynamic one, characterized by continuous local adaptations.  ...  An important percentage of these are the result of social and organizational factors, not simply technical failures.  ...  The views and conclusions expressed in this paper are those of the authors alone and do not reflect the views or policies of the National Science Foundation. About the author  ...

2007 Information Systems Journal  
' the social context in which ISD occurs.  ...  We explain the rationale and theoretical underpinnings of MMM and then discuss our action research to investigate the viability and relevance of MMM during ISD practice.  ...  An early argument for using metaphors in ISD is given by Lanzara (1983) .  ...

Enabling Promethean Leaps: An Examination of Storytelling Techniques in Information Systems Development

Kieran Conboy, National University of Ireland
2021 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
Accordingly, one should expect as much of narrative techniques in information systems development (ISD) such as epics, user stories, and personas.  ...  However, existing research has focused on these techniques' operational aspects rather than their potential for transformation or the extent to which they currently aid true transformative change in ISD  ...  User stories (epics and stories) constitute the production units and driving artefacts in agile ISD.  ...

A social action model of situated information systems design

Susan Gasson
1999 ACM SIGMIS Database the DATABASE for Advances in Information Systems  
Much of the IS literature takes a fragmented perspective of the nature of IS design, examining methodological issues, social issues, or political issues in isolation from the context of the design initiative  ...  Findings from the study demonstrate how innovative IS design activity is situated in its organizational context.  ...  This led to the assumption, at an early point in the process, that the design team had a sufficiently in-depth, intersubjective understanding of the design problem for decomposition of a design solution  ...

Sociomateriality and Information Systems Success and Failure [chapter]

Karlheinz Kautz, Dubravka Cecez-Kecmanovic
2013 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Through the application of Actor Network Theory (ANT) to the case of an IS that transacts insurance products we demonstrate the contribution of such a perspective to the understanding of how IS success  ...  Through the application of Actor Network Theory (ANT) to the case of an IS that transacts insurance products we demonstrate the contribution of such a perspective to the understanding of how IS success  ...  This view emphasises the sociomaterial nature of an IT artefact: its agency resides neither in a technology nor in a human actor, but in a chain of relations between human and technological actants.  ...

Evaluation and Classification of Stress Urinary Incontinence: Current Concepts and Future Directions

Nadir I. Osman, Vincenzo Li Marzi, Jean N. Cornu, Marcus J. Drake
2016 European Urology Focus

Method Engineering as Design Science

Göran Goldkuhl, Linköping University, Sweden, Fredrik Karlsson, Örebro University, Sweden
2020 Journal of the AIS  
In this paper, we motivate, devise, demonstrate, and evaluate an approach for the research-based development of information systems development methods (ISDMs).  ...  We therefore propose eight principles that marry ME and DS, resulting in a process model with six activities to support research-based development of ISDMs.  ...  To do this, we start with ME-DS Principle 3, which expresses that an ISDM is a normative artifact that should be based on a perspective with relevance for the type of Intertwined activity Flow Legend:  ...

Processes and Models for Serious Game Design and Development [chapter]

Eelco Braad, Gregor Žavcer, Alyea Sandovar
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We will do so by pointing out a number of different, and often opposing, perspectives. From a user perspective, we will start with the different views that designers and users have of the game.  ...  Considering this context for which a serious game is designed is therefore an important step of the design process: from this context stems an important set of specific design requirements for the serious  ...  In one such study, self-determination theory [77] was used to analyze motivation in games from a perspective of a player satisfying their needs.  ...

Adoption Barriers of IoT in Large Scale Pilots

Ali Padyab, Abdolrasoul Habibipour, Aya Rizk, Anna Ståhlbröst
2019 Information  
One of the key challenges facing the diffusion of such innovations within the course of an LSP is understanding the conditions in which their respective users decide to adopt them (or not).  ...  Accordingly, in this study we explore IoT adoption barriers in four LSPs in Europe from the following domains: smart cities, autonomous driving, wearables and smart agriculture and farming.  ...  A pilot is considered as the last stage of the test and evaluation of an ISD.  ...
