Abstract

This talk is about the relationships between information systems engineering, management and information science, while sharing common development objects: technology, work and organizations. I will approach these crossing perspectives from a research point of view, focusing on the nature and attributes of the "artifacts" produced by the research activities in these scientific areas. This view is surely biased by an engineering perspective although, as I will argue, there is much in common with a management (and organization theory) and information science perspective.

Firstly, I will synthesize some literature on the subject of design science research, identifying the commonalities between IS and (information) management research. Then, I will discuss the nature of the artifacts produced, showing that some are certainly technical but also have a social nature, and other are certainly social but also possessing a technical nature. This calls for a common theoretical ground framing the production of scientific knowledge in these areas and informing the collaborative design of work and technology in the organization. The meaning of the "social" here is twofold: (i) as an intrinsic component of both engineering and (information) management research methods and outcomes, and (ii) as a process involving researchers and employees (in the researched/intervined companies).

My thesis is that the artifacts produced by research in information systems engineering and those produced by research in (information) management are simultaneously "designed artifacts" and "boundary objects", inheriting some theoretical grounding from the Design Sciences, and being able to share successfully some methodological approaches. Nevertheless, issues such as the rigour-relevance dilemma are well known and apply to both areas of research. I will focus some attention on this issue as it is of great importance for example in H2020 european projects.

 

Short Bio

António Lucas Soares is an Associate Professor at the Department of Informatics Engineering at the University of Porto - Faculty of Engineering. There, he is the director of the master programme in Information Science and teaches Information Systems related courses.
