Process theory: Components and guidelines for development

Martha García-Murillo, Ezgi Nur Gozen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemChapter


Because the IS field is grounded in its applications to organizations, the challenge is to develop a coherent theoretical body of scholarly research, while also remaining relevant to the needs of the practitioner community. In this effort, the purpose of this chapter is to provide scholars with a general understanding of process theories and a taxonomy to provide some direction about how to make contributions to the theoretical legacy, particularly through often-ignored process theories, which are also relevant to practice.
