Complexions of Iterative Information Systems Development Approaches: Mediation in Chaotic Practices

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Abstract

There is an abundance of methodologies and approaches of information Systems Development (ISD) Processes. We use the concept of complexions of development processes and Technology Use Mediation (TUM) from a client perspective to show how an instance of a planned project in the prehospital sector changes dynamically. We identify how the events in the ISD process unfold according to which actions are taken and responded to by users and management respectively. The study finds that depending on the types of actions that users take, managers will react and this can greatly change the complexion and nature of the current process.

OtherThe main theme for this year’s event is “Challenging Smart”. We are living in a world in which society is rapidly being digitized with the use of technology in most aspects of our daily lives. Often, the term “smart” is used to describe these initiatives, be it in energy, governance, health, industry or education.<br/><br/>Following the Scandinavian tradition of participatory design and democratic processes, it is timely that our community contributes with important questions to be asked to municipalities, governments, businesses and researchers working on and deploying the technology.<br/>What does “smart”mean in this context? For whom is the technology smart? In what way is it smart? What should we expect from the organizations and businesses involved in this development, and what does it mean to be a resident in a smart society?<br/><br/>The “Challenging smart” slogan will headline both IRIS40 and SCIS8, and influence keynotes and hopefully also elicit insightful contributions from the athors submitting to either IRIS40 or SCIS8.<br/><br/>
