On Methods for Systems Development in Professional Organisations: The Karlstad university Approach to Information Systems and its Role in Society
2001 (English)Book (Refereed)
This is explained in the initial chapter by Stig Håkangård, head of division, and Anders G. Nilsson, professor, at Karlstad University:
"Information Systems is an expansive discipline in society today. As representatives of the Karlstad University approach we consider that the task of Information Systems is to illustrate how the use of modern information technology can support business operations; create new business opportunities and contribute to a more proactive service management in private companies and public organisations. Information Systems is a multidisciplinary subject with elements of technical, economic and pedagogical aspects. It is founded on an approach called consumable research, which means that our research is a combination of theoretical rigour and industry relevance. The challenge is to create mutual benefits to both the academic world and the business community when implementing theoretical knowledge in practice."
