Presents three case studies involving a collaboration between the Norwegian Computing Centre, three local authorities (municipalities) and a nationwide software manufacturer. Seeks to address whether: evolutionary prototyping a feasible development model; it is suitable for developing common systems; user‐controlled design leads to better systems; and development projects can foster mutual learning. Examines how evolutionary prototyping was used as a strategic development model. Relates the project and its impact for each case. Discusses system development as a catalyst for change. Comments on the changing attitude of the manufacturer once the commercial implications of the project became apparent.
