IADIS International Conference Information Systems Post-implementation and Change Management 2012 (part of the MCCSIS 2012)

The IADIS International Conference Information Systems Post-implementation and Change Management 2012 was held in Lisbon, Portugal, 17-19 July, 2012.


The IADIS Information Systems Post-implementation and Change Management (ISPCM) 2012 conference provided a forum for the discussion of IS in such a socio-technological perspective. It covered the issues related to use, exploitation, maintenance of IS in organizations, focusing on the post-implementation phase of the IS life-cycle. Discussed the impacts and effects of the introduction of new technological artefacts' in human activity systems and exploring the much need management of these processes. The conference discussed these issues in the context of IS professional practice, research and teaching.

This year Conference received 42 submissions from more than 21 countries. Each submission had been anonymously reviewed by an average of five independent reviewers, to ensure that accepted submissions were of a high standard. Consequently only 8 full papers were approved which meant an acceptance rate of 19 %. A few more papers were accepted as short papers and reflection paper. An extended version of the best papers was published in the IADIS International Journal on Computer Science and Information Systems (ISSN:1646-3692).

Submissions were accepted under the following 6 main topics:
- IS Change Management in Practice and Organisational Processes
- Post-implementation Change Management and Risk Thinking
- IS Professional Issues
- Change Management Processes
- IS Development Cycle and Change Management
- Research Methods and Methodologies in Post-Implementation and Change Management

The Conference included the presentation of full papers, short papers and reflection paper and also one keynote presentation by Professor Frantz Rowe, University of Nantes, France.


Keynote Presentation:

Is IS-enabled organizational transformation still a new frontier for strategic information systems research? by

ispcm2012a Professor Frantz Rowe, University of Nantes, France

Twenty years after the promise of Information Systems – enabled Organizational Transformation (IS-enabled OT), what have we learnt? In order to understand better this phenomenon this communication reviews the literature. We analyze the discourse on OT from the strategy, organization theory and IS literatures and identify four structuring themes: organizational inertia, process, agency and performance. Deriving a coding from these themes we apply it to a set of empirical papers and comment the results. Ten research avenues are then identified. They show that IS-enabled OT is still a new frontier for strategic information systems research.


Conference Best Paper:

THE DYNAMICS OF A BPM IMPLEMENTATION: A MIXED METHOD STUDY ON IMPLEMENTATION EFFECTIVENESS AND SYSTEM SUCCESS by Benny M.E. De Waal, University of Applied Sciences and Ronald Batenburg, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

What has happened during the implementation of a business process management (BPM) system? This paper describes how system success has changed after the implementation of a BPM system, and explains how events and behavior during the BPM implementation have influenced this. Using a mixed method approach, survey data was collected from end-users before and after the implementation of a BPM system in a large Dutch social insurance organisation, and by 52 additional semi-structured interviews. The results show that system success after the BPM implementation was dramatically declined. Analysis based on the Klein-Sorra model of implementation effectiveness shows that implementation climate and innovation-values fit were very weak and can be considered as explanations of the decline in system success. For practitioners, this research offers four practices to be considered during BPM implementation.

The IADIS International Conference Information Systems Post-implementation and Change Management 2012 was published both in Book (ISBN: 978-972-8939-73-1) and CD-ROM (ISBN: 978-989-8533-08-1).
