This booklet constitutes the refereed court cases of the overseas Workshop on strength Minimization equipment in laptop imaginative and prescient and development attractiveness, EMMCVPR'97, held in Venice, Italy, in may well 1997. The publication provides 29 revised complete papers chosen from a complete of sixty two submissions. additionally incorporated are 4 complete invited papers and a keynote paper by way of top researchers.
Welcome to the eighth overseas Workshop on Groupware (CRIWG 2002)! the former workshops happened in Lisbon, Portugal (1995), Puerto Varas, Chile (1996), El Escorial, Spain (1997), Búzios, Brazil (1998), Cancun, Mexico (1999), Madeira, Portugal (2000), and Darmstadt, Germany (2001). CRIWG workshops persist with an easy recipe for fulfillment: sturdy papers, a small variety of individuals, large time for energetic and positive discussions, and a excessive point of cooperation either inside of and among paper classes.

Ghada Alaa and Guy Fitzgerald REQUIREMENTS OF INNOVATIVE AND ADAPTIVE DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES According to Riehle (2000) the traditional practice of software development regards the development process as something that has to be planned and controlled in order to reliably achieve the desired result. However, Highsmith (1997) argues that as industries move from predictable, stable environments to unpredictable, nonlinear and fast-changing environments, traditional information systems development practices based on determinism, predictability and stability will be inadequate to foster innovative development.
It supports the amethodical view suggested by Truex et al. (2000). This requires development processes to be unstructured, opportunistic and driven by accident. It also builds on the AM (Agile Modeling) methodology suggested by Ambler (2001 a), in fact it fills in some of the gaps of AM that provides only a set of guidelines such as the importance of active stakeholder participation, applying the right artifacts, creating several models in parallel and others (Ambler, 2001 c) without providing a mechanism to operationalize them.
They suggest instead a shift in the development mode from structured, orderly and methodical to unstructured, emergent and amethodical to fulfill the requirements set by the new development environments. By amethodical they don’t mean a descent into chaos and anarchy, but emancipation from structure and regularity. Amethodical systems thinking implies orchestration of the development activities but not a predefined sequence, rationality or universality. Thus, amethodical views of information systems development supports conflict over consensus and forces the developers to attend to the different voices and interests and not seek simply a compromise solution.
