Abstract

By viewing information system development (ISD) process as a knowledge work different factors related to the creation and sharing knowledge can be identified as possible causes of ISD methodologies low acceptance and mode of use. Knowledge-related problems in ISD process are divided into three main categories, namely: the tacitness of application domain knowledge, the tacitness of ISD methodology knowledge and the symmetry of ignorance in ISD process. This paper uses Tuomi’s knowledge creation model to identify knowledge-manipulation activities required in each phase of ISD process.
