Abstract

This paper argues that it is of crucial importance that information systems (IS) research and practice associates technology innovation with the context within which it is embedded. It identifies three principles to be followed in order to address the contextual processes involved in IS implementation: first technology innovation should be considered in relation to socio-organizational change; second, analysis should consider not only the local organizational, but also the national and international context; and third,analysis should consider both the technical/rational decisions and actionsinvolved in the innovation process and the cultural, social and cognitive forces of such a process. These principles are demonstrated with the analysis of a case study of organizational reform in Cyprus.
