    Abstract

    In information systems (IS) there is a long tradition with research involving the influence of practice. Such research does not only create new knowledge. All researchaims for new knowledge. In traditional explanatory research scholars attempts to create new knowledge about circumstances not yet well understood. But practice influencing research creates new circumstances and as a consequence it creates knowledgeabout this new possibility. This kind of research means participating in the creation of new possibilities. Such a creation processes consists usually of different stages; first a proposal stage where some new possibilities are envisioned in relation to backdrop of problems and needs, second an attempt to realize the new possibilities and third, an investigation of use and effects of the new possibilities.
