Reading Group June 3rd 2004

The second CITO reading group. Discussion of the state of IS Research. The readings are taken from the JAIS debate in December 2003 and are all available online. There were 8 people at the inaugural CITO reading group. We more or less agreed to disagree with Nicholas Carr's claim that IT doesn't matter, but had a variety of reasons for why we disagreed with him. In 90 minutes we managed to cover organisational innovation, strategy, management, org. charts, power & politics, competitive advantage and the open source movement. We decided to have another meeting next Thursday (3rd June) at 5.30pm in the Common Room. Taking our inspiration from Carr's 'fuzzy' definition of IT, we're going to discuss the state of IS Research. The readings are taken from the JAIS debate in December 2003 and are all available online: Galliers, R. D. (2003) ‘Change as Crisis or Growth? Toward a Trans- disciplinary View of Information Systems as a Field of Study: A Response to Benbasat and Zmud's Call for Returning to the IT Artifact’ Volume 4 Article 13 November, 2003 http://jais.aisnet.org/articles/default.asp?vol=4&art=13 Robey, D (2003) ‘Identity, Legitimacy and the Dominant Research Paradigm: An Alternative Prescription for the IS Discipline: A Response to Benbasat and Zmud's Call for Returning to the IT Artifact’ Volume 4 Article 15 December, 2003 http://jais.aisnet.org/articles/default.asp?vol=4&art=15 Regards, Anita
