In the new year, we are continuing our quest for discovering emotions. After discussing Ciborra’s paper "The Mind or the Heart?" which was informed by Phenomenology, we will approach the topic this time with a Foucaultian perspective. In perfect harmony, we selected the following paper: MCGRATH, K. (2006) Affection not Affliction: The Role of Emotions in Information Systems and Organizational Change. Information and Organization, 16, 277-303. You get a copy of this paper from the e-library. We will gather on Tuesday 13 February at 5PM at the stairs in Quinn to trail off to the Montrose Hotel.

Atlas ti Research Training from Feb 01, 2007 08:30 AM to Feb 02, 2007 11:10 PM Room Q108,
Atlas Two-Day Workshop, February 1st and 2nd. Room Q108, Quinn School School Belfield. Laptop required. Those interested in attending please contact Peadar Ó Scolaí to confirm your place. The aim of this session is to provide a thorough overview of ATLAS.ti 5 and to start planning for working on a real project. The session begins with demonstration and discussion of the main aspects of the software, providing an overview of its potential and an idea of its long-term usage. The hands-on sessions ground participants in the basic tools and tasks which usually occupy them for some time in a real project. We encourage effective and flexible use of tools, whilst staying in control of the work you do in the software. The course will suit those who have looked at or used ATLAS.ti to a limited extent, and those who are complete beginners. However you should already have some idea about what your approach to qualitative data will be. The course does not teach you ‘how to do’ qualitative data analysis per se, although we raise methodological and analytic issues in discussing projects. Tasks covered: Familiarization with major attributes of the software. Assigning textual and multimedia data. Working at the textual level, exploring data. Marking - annotating - memoing - coding - basic retrieval February 2nd: 10AM Q108: Day 2 Intermediate Session : Moving on with ATLAS.ti. This session will build on the work covered in Day 1 to think in more depth about the analytic tasks and begin to use the more sophisticated tools ATLAS.ti provides. Tasks covered: Network tool - Query tool - Text searching - Autocoding – Output Object Explorer - Object Crawler Backing - up and moving projects

ICIS 2006 Milwaukee from Dec 10, 2006 08:05 AM to Dec 13, 2006 06:05 PM Milwaukee, Wisconsin - USA,
The International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) 2006. The program theme for ICIS 2006 is "IT for Under-Served Communities". Many communities globally are under-served by IT because they either lag in their embrace of IT or lack the economies of scale or infrastructures needed for commercial application development. We hope to attract papers that address IT needs for a broad range of "communities" and a variety of systems: systems in a regional context, e.g. rural areas; systems for those who cannot afford them; systems for developing countries; systems for specific types of organizations, e.g. small- and medium-sized organizations, non-profit organizations; and systems for groups or individuals with specific needs, for example senior citizens and individuals with disabilities. Potential topics include: Alternative, community driven software development approaches, Participation and requirements engineering, Comparison of policies to facilitate under-served communities. Active research already exists in many of these areas and this conference theme could inspire more work in other areas.

IFIP 8.6, University of Salford, UK. Call for papers Nov 17, 2006 from 08:30 AM to 03:40 PM Salford, Manchester, UK.,
Paper submission deadline: 17th November 2006. Although significant progress has been made, aided by academic colloquia such as IFIP WG8.6, technological innovation continues to be problematic for many organisations, with the rate of failure of IS/IT projects remaining stubbornly high. It is clearly important to understand why some innovation efforts are successful while others fail – why the same technology that “diffuses” in one context meets only resistance and rejection in others! The aim of this conference is to help move forward our understanding of the organisational dynamics of technology-based innovation by diversifying the research agenda in three general areas: theoretical perspectives, methodologies, and organisational sectors. Paper submission deadline: 17th November 2006
CITO research seminar "Design of a Visual Thinking Environment for Creating Knowledge of Situated Organizational Experience" Nov 08, 2006 from 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM Q233, Quinn School, Belfield,
You are cordially invited to a research seminar hosted by CITO and the MIS Department on Wednesday November 8 at 4pm in the Quinn Building room Q233. Professor Richard J. Boland Jr. from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University will discuss a theme he has been developing under the working title "Design of a Visual Thinking Environment for Creating Knowledge of Situated Organizational Experience". Dick explains; "As part of a larger effort to promote design thinking in management, I explore the design of a visual thinking environment for reflecting upon the personal experience of acting responsibly in an organizational setting. In developing this visual thinking environment, I will synthesize ideas from several key authors: the philosopher John Dewey, the art theorist Rudolph Arnheim, the novelist Walker Percy and the language theorists George Lakoff and Mark Johnson. Using Dewey, I characterize the organizational actor as actively engaging organizational life and seeking its betterment. Using Rudolph Arnheim, I depict the organizational actor as being centered in a multidimensional situation, which is experienced as force fields. Using Walker Percy, I emphasize the existential experience of the organizational actor, and the queer way in which language involves a dynamic of reversals, rotations and transcendence. Using Lakoff and Johnson, I emphasize that the predicaments experienced by the organizational actor are based on the experience of being embodied and confronting the problem of self and other. I then propose the design of a visual thinking environment in which the individual can visualize the changing field of forces in their situation, and can explore possibilities for seeking organizational betterment." ALL WELCOME (please circulate)

"The experience of system design: a hermeneutic of organizational action" by Richard Boland and Wesley Day. This paper represents a shift away from our recent forays into 'high theory' and a return to theoretical development grounded in the empirical, or in this case the empirical as interviews and reflections from a worker in the field. BOLAND, R. J. & DAY, W. F. (1989) The Experience of System Design: A Hermeneutic of Organizational Action. Scandinavian Journal of Management, 5, 87-104. Abstract: An interpretive description of the experience of being an information system designer is developed through a series of in-depth interviews. The subject is a system analyst responsible for developing a computer system in a small organization. The study is a hermeneutic of organizational action in that it reads the text of the subject's experience and discloses structures of meaning being drawn upon during the system design process. These structures of meaning are discussed along three dimensions; the experience of moving through and being located within the organizational space, the experience of interacting with others during the task of system design and the experience of making moral choices. Contact me for directions on obtaining a copy of the paper, it can be a difficult article to source. We're a little constrained by wanting to read the paper around the time that Dick Boland himself will be in Dublin so we've decided that tuesday 7th at lunch time (12:30pm) is the best fit.

IFIP 8.2, University of Limerick, July 2006 from Jul 13, 2006 08:15 AM to Jul 15, 2006 08:15 PM
Social Inclusion: Societal & Organizational Implications for Information Systems. The expression social exclusion is widely deployed in debates that refer to changes in society which have consequences for individuals and collectivities who are excluded from various processes such as: participation in decision-making and political procedures, access to employment and material resources, and integration into common cultural processes. Contemporary debates about social exclusion identify information as a key dimension of poverty, and digital exclusion as a problem. As the IS field broadens to embrace wider concerns that go beyond systems development issues, it is essential that we expand our field of enquiry to consider what are the processes that engender social exclusion and what are the issues that derive from it? General Chair: Julie Kendall. Program Chairs: Debra Howcroft and Eileen Trauth. Organizing Chairs: Tom Butler and Brian Fitzgerald.

Seminar: Strategic Group Analysis of Hybrid Commerce Firms Jun 16, 2006 from 11:30 AM to 12:50 PM Q013,
A Strategic Group Analysis of Hybrid Commerce Firms: Implications for Managing Technological Change. Abstract: Retail organizations are currently undergoing significant transformations to integrate their physical and online retail channels. This emerging form of e-commerce, known as hybrid commerce, refers to the conduct of business with consumers through the provision of integrated information and innovative cross-channel services. The successful adaptation to a hybrid organizational form requires extensive technological and process changes. Due to resource constraints and strategic focus, firms might choose to integrate only certain aspects of their retail operations. The objective of this study is to provide a competitive mapping of the current state of hybrid commerce in the retail industry in order to guide the hybrid commerce innovation process. Using the data collected from 125 hybrid commerce organizations in Singapore, we performed a strategic group analysis to develop a taxonomy of 4 distinct types of organizations. These different forms of integrators were found to manifest performance differences. Our results provide useful insights to understand the strategic options available to manage the technological change as well as the performance implications in making the transition to different stages of hybrid commerce. Biography of speaker: Lih-Bin Oh is an Instructor and doctoral candidate in the Department of Information Systems at the National University of Singapore.
