    One approach to learning information systems design is case-based reasoning (CBR). However, learning from design cases can be superficial, if cases are not accessible at the level of meaningful design components and are not contextualised in the situation in which they have been conceived. StoryNet is a learning environment inspired by CBR and by a methodology for information systems analysis and ... View full abstract»

  • Selection and evaluation of information systems methodologies: the gap between theory and practice

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):100 - 104

    The emergence of theoretical frameworks that detail how systems developers should evaluate the methodologies they use has served to highlight the ever-present gap between what academics say and what practitioners do. The paper draws on the experience and comments of practising information systems developers exposes the gap and then proposes how the gap may be bridged View full abstract»

    In many situations there is a need to integrate methods. In any method integration learning aspects should be addressed explicitly. The paper presents procedure and experiences from a research and development project concerning integration of two development methods. Communication problems obstruct the integrative method redesign initially. The communication problems are resolved through the use o... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the `information system' that supported the activities of the fighter pilots during the Battle of Britain in order to illustrate fundamental ideas about the organised provision of information support. Although developed 60 years ago and not generally recognised as an `information system', it offers a paradigm case for the development of computer-based information systems: namel...

  • Integrating rapid application development and participatory design

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):105 - 112

    Rapid application development (RAD) is a contingent information systems development method that has arisen in response to business and development uncertainty in the commercial information systems engineering domain. Participatory design (PD) is a style of software development that has achieved some significance within a number of academic research areas and can be seen as a response to dissatisfa...
