IT driven change: bridging the divide between the social and technical elements ofsustainability
2013 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
This conceptual paper identifies and discusses a contemporary problem within engineering and natural sciences: the lack of “interpretive” and “human oriented” frameworks that can help us understand how to change citizen-consumers towards a more sustainable living. More specifically the paper provides a framework - the Commonality Framework for IT-enabled Change - that affords a stepping stone for bridging the divide between the so-called techno-economic model and the individualistic model of behavioral change. The framework addresses the dearth of research (in engineering and natural sciences geared studies) based on social-technical perspective and practice theory, and the lack of focus on the human actor in technology enabled change process towards sustainability.
