Title

Who is in charge and whose rules are followed..?: Power in a inter-organisational IS project

Abstract

This interpretive grounded theory study describes and analyses major power issues in a Scandinavian

inter-organisational IS project which spanned four organisations, two suppliers, one national

organisation and a research organisation. The paper explores different dimensions of power that

emerged during the project – sources of power, power as resistance, reasons for the power struggle,

and power as exercised, We conclude that, while power issues in ISD projects are by no means a new

phenomenon, these power issues were exacerbated in this IOIS project due to the project governance

structures necessary to coordinate several organisations.,
