Track: Enterprise Transformation 
European Conference on Information Systems, May 27-29, 2015, Muenster, 


The first iteration of a track on Enterprise Transformation was organised 
at ECIS2012 in Barcelona (Spain), while the second iteration was organised 
at ECIS2013 in Utrecht (Netherlands). The track managed to attract on 
average 40 papers. For the organisers of the Enterprise Transformation 
track at ECIS2012 and ECIS2013, this number of submissions is a clear 
stimulus to propose a third iteration of a track.

To stimulate discussion, and invite papers with a refreshing perspective, 
this year the focus will be on “Enterprise Transformation – Purposeful 
design or organic emergence?”. With this focus, we aim to trigger a 
discussion between essentially an engineering perspective on enterprise 
transformation (enterprises and their transformation as an object of 
purposeful design), and other perspectives on change of enterprises that 
should enrich the engineering view. For example a communication and/or 
organizational perspective, seeing the enterprise as the result of social 
interaction among people. 

Possible topics include, but are not limited to: 
* Theories about enterprise transformations
* Models of enterprise transformation 
* Case studies of enterprise transformations 
* Frameworks, methods and other instruments of enterprise transformation 
* Design and architecture of enterprise transformations
