Software engineering: Accessing IT core concepts. Faculty Publications (2013)
The conceptual complexity of software engineering presents challenges to both teachers and learners. The persistence of these challenges prompted consideration of strategies to enhance accessibility and universal design into courses from the early stages of ...
Why some physicians accept healthcare IT and others resist it: An activity-theoretic analysis. Faculty Publications (2013)
This paper examines why physicians react differently to the introduction of healthcare information technology (IT) in the same hospital at the same time. These diverse reactions, manifested as different forms of acceptance and resistance, are ...
Requirements elicitation techniques as communication channels: A framework to widen the window of understanding. Faculty Publications (2009)
This chapter highlights the criticality of communication in requirements elicitation. Using the concept of channel expansion, a broad reclassification of requirements elicitation techniques according to their communication emphasis is presented. This classification is used to ...
The overreliance on analyst experience in the selection of requirements elicitation techniques. Faculty Publications (2008)
This study applies theory Channel Expansion Theory to assess factors that influence analyst perceptions of the richness of requirements elicitation techniques. These perceptions of richness are of interest as communication research has shown that richness ...
User reactions to information technology: Evidence from the healthcare sector. Faculty Publications (2008)
This paper examines the diverse nature of user reactions to information technology (IT) within the social-historical context of its organizational use. Employing activity theory as a conceptual framework, we conduct an interpretive analysis of physicians ...
Uncovering the Antecedents for Measuring the Nursing's Contribution to Quality of Care Provided to Patients : Role of Health Information Technology on the Care Coordination Faculty Publications (2006)
This project intends to identify and develop context-specific measurements that would capture nursing's contribution to the quality of care provided to the patient during their visit to the hospital. In this time period nurses play ...
Change management : The contribution of Personal Construct Theory (PCT). Faculty Publications (2004)
This paper explores the use of two complementary approaches, each stemming from Personal Construct Theory (PCT), to investigate the interdependence of organizations and information systems. Two techniques - Repertory Grid Analysis (RGA) and Cognitive Mapping ...
Implementing information systems to support knowledge work : An exploration of work motifs. Faculty Publications (2004)
The research presented in this paper is part of a larger study of the organizational impacts of information systems on knowledge work. The phase of the research reported in the paper explores current understanding of ...
Exploring information systems implementation and internalization using Repertory Grid Analysis. Faculty Publications (2001)
The research presented in this paper views the process of implementing information systems as an important locus of discussion and negotiation that affects judgements of information systems and the work they support. Empirical data gathered ...
The articulation of shared meaning in information systems development (case study). Faculty Publications (2001)
This paper presents a case study showing how Repertory Grid Analysis (RGA) can be used to construct shared meaning during information systems development, implementation and use. RGA was used as one of the evidence gathering ...
Flow and convergence in information systems evaluation. Faculty Publications (2000)
Hirschheim and Smithson (1988, 1998, 1999) highlight the continuing dominance of objective-rational techniques in the assessment of the impacts of information systems. We suggest that emphasis on evaluation techniques or content becomes self-perpetuating. Willcocks and ...
Information: its dimensions and quality. Faculty Publications (1998)
Complex ecological and social systems depend upon people exploiting the key resource of information. In identifying resources, the Industrial Revolution gave us the ‘4 M’s’ of men, money, machines and materials, the Green Revolution gave ...
Negotiating expectations: Towards sustainable technology. Faculty Publications (1998)
This paper reports some research into the design and implementation processes associated with the introduction of the UK National Automated Fingerprint Identification System (NAFIS) into the Avon and Somerset Constabulary. The complexity of the system ...
