Pre-investment evaluation of information system (IS) project proposals persists to be problematic and highly risky in practice. Numerous evaluation approaches and methodologies offered in the literature have not contributed to major improvements in practice. We propose here a radical departure from the dominant conceptions in IS evaluation literature by(More)
In this paper we propose a radical departure from the dominant conceptions in IS evaluation literature by adopting Actor-network Theory (ANT) to provide a better understanding of the development and evaluation of IS proposals in practice and examine the ways in which the evaluation process shapes and ensures the selection of the best IS projects. By drawing(More)

This paper presents a framework for considering the intangible capital value of ICT investments. The framework applies the tripartite model of(More)
Research aimed at understanding of how Information Technology (IT) investments impact on firm performance has produced incomplete and controversial results over the years. To improve understanding of the business value of IT investments we propose a theoretical framework to conduct and cross-examine a market (macro) view and an organisational (micro) view(More)
Pre-investment evaluation of information system project proposals persists in being problematic and highly risky in practice. Numerous evaluation approaches and methodologies, offered in the literature, have not contributed to major improvements in practice. As the literature review shows, these methodologies have assumed an ideal of objective and(More)
The dominant view in the information systems (IS) and software engineering literature is that the application of a rigorous pre-investment evaluation methodology is the key to ensuring the selection of the best IS projects – that is those with the highest expected value for the organisation and with the highest probability of success. While the literature(More)
This research aims to advance understanding of how investments in Information Technologies (IT) impact on firm performance by developing and testing an advanced model of IT business value. Research so far has provided incomplete and controversial evidence as to the difference that IT investments made on firms’ performance. This research adopts a novel(More)
