The Information Systems (IS) discipline has a long tradition of providing guidelines that recommend contents for IS curriculum. Regular updates are published, drawing on articles from IS education-related publications. Such guidelines have been one useful input to IS curriculum planning efforts in individual universities, bringing in IS community views on appropriate content. Although the system has served the community well for decades, there are now arguments that the process is no longer sufficient because of the changing nature of the discipline. The availability of stable digital platforms further supports such arguments. Based on a brief review of living community cases, we outline a process for moving towards a continuous process for using and sustaining the curriculum guidelines. This paper describes initial steps towards a more extensive design science research approach to map and establish an improved, sustainable process for the ACM/AIS model curricula.
