Besides the adaptive cycle, indeed, we also consider how organizations align the adopted strategy to operations and in particular to the current information technology infrastructure and how it enhance (internalexternal) user innovation In particular, we discuss these issues in a pilot case study carried out at Corriere della sera, one of the main Italian newspaper. The aim of the research at Corriere della Sera is to understand how a major national newspaper organization manages the integration between activities related to the print newspaper and at the same time opportunities enabled by Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) as well as by networks, social media and mobiles technology.
