Management of Technochange in an Interorganizational e-Government Project

Abstract [en]

This paper explores if and how enterprise architecture knowledge may support management of interorganizational technochange. An action research study on an eGovernment technochange project provides empirical data. Four issues of technochange are identified from the research site and presented; Solution concept communication, Stakeholder competencies, Goal ambiguity and finally the Collaborative form as such. Results indicate that enterprise architecture may support management of interorganizational e-Government technochange. In addition, collaborative competences must be developed by respective partner as new collaborative arrangements grow. These collaborative competencies could be part of a future enterprise architecture for interorganizational technochange.

Abstract [en]

Despite the perceived importance of IT, a majority of IT projects fail to deliver what was actually ordered (!). One main reason for failure is IT project management’s inability to adapt and react to a dynamic and changing project environment, instead, projects are run as if it is possible to predict all project variables before project start.

In reality, IT project workers live in a dynamic, political and commercial environment where it is difficult to predict and control the future. IT projects needs to be continually aligned with their environment to stay relevant and deliver utility.

Through a design science and action research approach, a model supporting IT project managers with IT project alignment is created and tested. The model is called DELTA and is designed to be easy to understand and use for IT project managers; it builds on a simplification of commonly available approaches in order to facilitate communication the different domains of expertise in IT projects. DELTA builds on four main constituents: Enterprise images, Stakeholders, Goals and Project. Guidelines for using the model is also presented.

Experiences from using the model indicates that the model is perceived as a useful complement to regular project management methods, specifically by merging different conceptual perceptions into a common view. Furthermore, results highlight the conflict between IT project alignment and the traditional project model. Finally, the results show the difference between IT project issues and underlying causes for these issues.
