Abstract

The design and embedding of technical artifacts in complex task, social, and
organizational environments is fundamental to IS. Yet in Design Science Research (DSR) and in the information system development process, the role of the humans who will use the system has been marginalized to that of a source in a requirements elicitation process, a subject in participatory design, or worse, a "user" of the designed technological artifact (Bannon 1991).
