Description

Information technology and information systems (IT/IS) management and governance is a complex phenomenon. IT/IS management and governance typically involve individuals or groups from various cultures, educational / professional backgrounds, and organizations who work together using various methods (or methodologies/ frameworks) and tools to ensure that the final product will meet the expectations of all stakeholders. They also raise sophisticated problems in terms of value creation, alignment with enterprise strategy and evaluation of return on investment. In order to better understand the intricate problems that can arise in such a complex and dynamic work environment, this track adopts a multi-dimensional approach focusing on both user-centric, as well as, method-centric aspects: Human factors in IS/IT Management: understanding the large variety of human factors that need to be considered during IS/IT Management. Issues such as (but not limited to) lack of proper communication and coordination among team members, task management in a distributed setting, cultural differences etc. This topic also deals with human issues related to IS/IT management in specific project and organizational environments. For example, customer collaboration is important in an agile context, while developer coordination and communication is critical in a globally distributed IS/IT environment. Methods and Tools for IS/IT Management: understanding and explaining the design, adoption, and success of methods (or methodologies/ frameworks) and tools from areas such as (and not limited to) project management, software engineering, method engineering, architecture management, service management, and IS/IT governance. The goal is to foster research by providing deeper insights into factors that affect their successful design, dissemination, and application. Researchers and practitioners interested in submitting papers to this track are encouraged to explore IT/IS management issues related to the above mentioned themes – for example, from a design, behavioral, and technological perspective. Papers may consider different units of analysis: individual, group, or organizational level.

Shared understanding between diverse technology stakeholders is a key driver of IT-Business alignment, also underpinning successful adaptive, IS development activities. Lack of shared understanding creates representational gaps, innovation blindness and different technology frames which create barriers to development and implementation of technology. Applying a socio-material perspective to Leonar ... More

This experimental study analyzes how two key factors, information load and creativity, influence decision making in escalation situations in which decision makers reinvest further resources in a losing course of action even when information indicates that the IT project is performing poorly and should be discontinued. Whereas previous studies focus on the complexity of information, this study inve ... More
