The development of business information systems for changing social organisations is considered by redefining the ‘engineering problem’ of information systems development as the ‘living problem’. Tailorable information systems are proposed to address the living problem. The concept of deferred system’s design, derived through interpretivism and phenomenology, provides a design philosophy for addressing the living problem.
