The complex and demanding business of developing information systems often involves the use of different systems development methods such as the Rational Unified Process or the Microsoft Solution Framework. Through these methods the development organisation can be viewed as a collective of actors following different rules in the form of prescribed actions(More)
The rationale of their creators inherently influences information systems development methods. Rationale, which is always based on the creator's values and assumptions about the problem domain, motivates, implicit or explicit, the different modelling activities and primitives prescribed by a method. The method, and hence its inherited rationale, directs(More)
This paper outlines a joint industry-academia research project in the area of method engineering. Founded in practical experiences and emerging theoretical constructs, the project aims at developing theories, methods and tools to support the adaptation, integration and construction of method components for flexible configuration of system development(More)
Method configuration (MC) has been presented as a particular kind of method engineering (ME). ME in general is often a tedious and time consuming task and method configuration is no exception. Consequently, tool support is often required. In this paper we present an operationalization of the Method for Method Configuration into the tool support MC Sandbox.(More)
