Design Science Research in Information Systems Acknowledgements: We would like to thank Allen Lee , Ron Weber, and Gordon Davis who in different ways each contributed to our thinking about design s cience in the Information Systems profession and encouraged us to pursue this line of research.

A Design Science Research Methodology for Information Systems Research ABSTRACT: The paper motivates, presents, demonstrates in use, and evaluates a methodology for conducting design science (DS) research in information systems. DS is of importance in a discipline oriented to the creation of successful artifacts. In: ECIS 2009 Proceedings (online). Research in design has a long history in many fields including architecture, engineering, education, psychology, and the fine arts (Cross 2001). We Design activities are central to most applied disciplines. Dr. Tuunanen is a member of the Association of Computing Machinery, the Association of Information Systems, Such research Information Systems is an applied research discipline, in the sense that we frequently apply theory from other disciplines, such as economics, computer science, and the social sciences, to solve problems at the intersection of information technology and organizations. Several researchers have pioneered DS research in IS, yet over the past 15 years, little DS research has been done within the discipline. Raimo Hälinen (2012) Lahti 14.12.2012 2. The behavioral-science paradigm seeks to develop and verify theories that explain or predict human or organizational behavior. Given the artificial nature of organizations and the information systems that support them, the design-science paradigm can play a significant role in resolving the fundamental dilemmas that have plagued IS research: rigor, relevance, discipline boundaries, behavior, and technology (Lee 2000). 12.00 – 13.30 Action Design Research 13.30 – 14.00 Cafee break 14.00 – 15.00 Using Action Design Reseach method Discussion how to apply ADR-method 15.00 – 16.00 Comparison DSR, AR and ADR methods how to generalize results using by deduction and induction Summary and conclusion In addition, his work has appeared in a number of conference proceedings within his research interest areas such as European Con-ference on Information Systems, Design Science Research in Information Systems Information Systems Research (ISR) is an author-friendly peer-reviewed journal that publishes the best research in the information systems discipline. They concluded that rigor design science research in information systems must be informed by established behavioural theories. Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share research papers. Its mission is to advance knowledge about the effective and efficient utilization of information technology by individuals, groups, organizations, society, and nations for the improvement of economic and social welfare. Presented at the European Conference on Information Systems … Two paradigms characterize much of the research in the Information Systems discipline: behavioral science and design science. Since then, much work has been published trying to define the paradigmatic nature of information system research as a design science. Information Systems Action design research method 1.
