1996). For example, we address the questions: how best can an information system be fitted into the working lives of the people in the organization that are going to use it and how can the individuals concerned best relate to the 41 42 The past and future of information systems machine in terms of operating it and using the output from it because we regard these as very important issues? Further, we think that the people in the organization have a right to determine the solutions to these questions.

But this engineering view of information systems development has continued well beyond the 1980s. , 1991). The main motivation for Multiview was to include human and organizational aspects fully into information systems development. But we also wanted to suggest that information systems development was not a step-by-step, prescriptive process as espoused by the above approaches, but iterative and sometimes applied differently as circumstances dictated. This reflected our real-world experience. Our definition of Multiview was therefore more a contingency framework than a formal set of procedures.

Furthermore, pilot projects allow designers to gauge the degree of customer integration into service operations. g. Shostack, 1984). Overall, pilot projects therefore generate knowledge about the service architecture (Böhmann, 2003) that shows key interdependencies between ICT systems, service processes and customer integration. Design recommendations that allow an innovation to replicate in a different context need to build on these architectural relationships as these reveal interdependencies between the design of the innovation and thus between critical contingent factors for realizing it.
