Abstract

Groupware is a typical example of an application domain in which requirements are hard to elicit and keep changing before, during, and after the introduction of the system. This calls for an evolutionary implementation approach. Several socio-technical models give an explanation of the interaction between the technical and the social system, i.e., the software and its organisational environment, but these models have not yet led to a clear method for evolutionary implementation. In order to arrive at such a method, we need a theoretical framework for how this adaptation process takes place. Adaptive Structuration Theory (AST) is a good candidate for such a framework. The BITE research project at the University of Twente aims to operationalise the concepts of AST through application in several industrial pilot projects. Based on these pilots we will develop a method for evolutionary implementation of groupware.
