XENIA/HOSPITALITY ANALYSIS OF IS INNOVATION

We draw upon Ciborra’s insightful concept of Xenia (i.e. hospitality) to reveal the intrinsic and heterogeneous nature of the socio-technical interplay underlying processes of organizational innovation mediated through technologies. Social processes of development and implementation are illuminated through the notion of hospitality which offers interesting insights into ‘messy’ socio-technical dynamics, often invisible and ignored by structured methodologies.

CITO session, 4pm, Q233, Friday 13th February.

The meeting will touch on the case of International European Bank and the analytical concept of Xenia (i.e. hospitality) which Ciborra proposes to reveal the intrinsic and heterogeneous nature of socio-technical interplay underlying processes of organizational innovation mediated through technologies. Work related to this body of research been presented previously at ICIS 2008, IFIP 8.6 and the Irish Academy of Management conference 2007.

Truncated abstract below, the ICIS research-in-progress paper is freely available at: http://aisel.aisnet.org/icis2008/107/

The meeting will finish at 5pm after which we will retire to the college common room.
