(p.11) 2 Krisis
The Labyrinths of Information

Claudio Ciborra

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the ‘crisis’ in the information and communication technology (ICT) discipline. It argues that crisis is due to the separation between people and science, and the neglect of issues such as the subjective origin of science, the foundational role of everyday life in the creation and development of a methodology, and, ultimately, the obliteration of authentic human existence in the management of organizations and technologies.

Keywords:   crisis, Galileo, ICT, Husserl, capability maturity model, strategic alignment
