Abstract [en]

Artefact mutability has been proposed as an important component of design theory in information systems. Although initial work on establishing a solid foundation for discussing mutability has been reported, conceptual as well as practical uncertainty still prevails. This paper draws on empirical work in a design science research project in the health sector to explore the notion of mutability and provides a novel conceptualization based on four different types of mutability. The study shows that in order to embrace mutability, IS researchers need to establish a sound philosophy of mutability and be open to incorporate theory and best practices from neighbouring fields, perhaps primarily from software engineering.
