Successful IT-enabled innovation is often attributed to benefit realization. However, often the results of the innovations are disappointing.
Reason for this is argued to be a divide between development of the technological solution, and the organizational implementation and change that
should ensure realization of the planned benefits. To handle this dilemma, it is
advised to strengthen the management of the realization project accepting
technology development and organizational change as entangled. Information
technology is thus best described as a socio-material construct having the
technical and the social inextricable linked. This paper challenges the belief in
an inherent divide by suggesting integration of the technological and
organizational development in the pilot-phase as well as subsequent phases
through co-creation and situated re-innovation. With reference to a case on telecare this paper elaborates on co-creation and situated re-innovation and
illustrates how this can be organized in practice.
