An Experience Report. Using Maps to Bridge the Socio-technical Gap

EasyChair Preprint no. 852

12 pagesDate: March 26, 2019


In my projects, devoted to the implementation of management systems, I have to take into account several social and technical features and I have to link and merge social and technical environments. To bridge the gap between these environments I find a useful support in maps and mapping. These topics are presented through a cluster of projects I developed in large sized companies, where exploring the context could be difficult and time consuming and the relationships are structured as a complex network. I focus on the maps that describe relationships between organizational structures and IT technologies. I detail two cases: a success and a failure of my socio-technical approach. The lessons I learned from my experiences are presented and proposed as reflection on the socio-technical perspective.

Keyphrases: conceptual modeling, ethnographic approach, Mapping, process analysis, Socio-technical perspective
