The Art of Structuring. Bridging the Gap Between Information Systems Research and Practice

Cham: Springer, 2019.
Under the general editorship: K. Bergener, M. Räckers, A. Stein.

The current level of maintaining and developing the effectiveness of process stakeholders has become a technologically demanding task involving ever-increasing costs. The belief that the upcoming digital transformation (DT) will represent a panacea is misguided since DT requires fundamental re-education and a restructuring of all process environments and human factors. Regardless of the business sector, DT is expected to accelerate as technology advances; new entrants and new forms of business partnerships change all the rules of the current stream.
The contributions in this book build these bridges, which are vital in order to communicate between different worlds of thought and methodology – be it between Information Systems (IS) research and practice, or between IS research and other research disciplines. They describe how structuring can be and should be done so as to foster communication and collaboration. The topics covered reflect various layers of structure that can serve as bridges: models, processes, data, organizations, and technologies. In turn, these aspects are complemented by visionary outlooks on how structure influences the field.
