Putting soft OR methods to work: the case of IS strategy development for the UK Parliament

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

In 1999 a project was undertaken to develop an information systems strategy (ISS) for the UK Parliament. This was the first time that both Houses of Parliament, the Lords and the Commons, had collaborated in such a venture. The paper describes the attempt to apply soft OR in the project. Because of the inherent interest of the context of the intervention, the paper describes the project in some detail. In the event the formal soft OR methods were not used but a soft approach was taken. The experience complements earlier studies in the retail, mining and electricity supply industries. The paper is the last in a series of published case studies, which describe attempts to apply soft methods in practice. Together the cases articulate the ‘strand of practice’ of one practitioner.Journal of the Operational Research Society (2005) 56, 1379–1398. doi:10.1057/palgrave.jors.2601963 Published online 9 March 2005
