Abstract

This paper proposes an “innovative” approach to the evaluation of information systems projects to support pharmaceutical clinical trials. The IS evaluation process for these projects closely follows that described in the Management of Innovation literature using methods which are highly iterative and are an integral component of the project. The development of organization‐technology fit is core and evaluation for this purpose can be thought of as a coupling mechanism between use and design and as a tool for continuous learning and improvement. This integrative, iterative approach is applied to a project undertaken at Glaxo Wellcome Research and Development.
