Abstract [en]

Systems development methods (or methods) are often applied in tailored version to fit the actual situation. Method tailoring is in most the existing literature viewed as either (a) a highly rational process with the method engineer as the driver where the project members are passive information providers, or (b) as an unstructured process where the systems developer makes individual choices, a selection process without any driver. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate that important design decisions during method tailoring are made by project members through negotiation. The study has been carried out using the perspective of Actor-Network Theory. Our narratives depict method tailoring as more complex than (a) and (b) show: the driver role rotates between the project members and design decisions are based on influences from several project members. However, these design decisions are not consensus decisions.
