In recent years, there has been vast investment on ICT initiatives in developing countries for social, economic and political development. Yet, the impact of these investments on development is difficult to determine. The reason for this is partly because “development” itself is an extremely debated notion, and a clear engagement with it demands a familiarity with the development theories, as well as willingness to engage explicitly with other research disciplines (Walsham & Thompson, 2010); or partly due to a lack of assessment guidance (Bhatnagar & Singh, 2010).
