7 Guidelines for Reuse Two main areas of guidelines for reuse can be distinguished in the reviewed literature. One is the well-known and frequently repeated understanding that financial criteria and methods are not sufficient for effective ISE. Therefore, nonfinancial criteria and methods should be (re)used as well to incorporate strategic, organizational and human factors in the BC. The other main area describes guidelines for which criteria and methods should be applied to which type of IS project: “Organizations may need to employ many evaluation methods, each suitable for evaluating certain types of [IS] applications.
The BC proposed the ‘productisation’ of a concept for a new software solution, which would involve software development, marketing, sales and support of the solution. Participant observation (DeWalt, DeWalt, & Wayland, 1998; Douglas, 1976) was applied during the BCD project, which took about 14 months. Notes were taken of all meetings and telephone calls, which resulted in a large amount of case data. Particular attention was given to challenges in BCD. To communicate these challenges in an effective manner they have been incorporated in a fictional, but realistic story.
Third, there are numerous reasons why realistic estimates do not come true in the end: “Even if the projected benefits are realized, it is difficult to prove that they are attributable to the IST investment” (Bacon, 1992). In such cases, one may incorrectly conclude that the method was 32 unreliable, while actually an unlikely event occurred, which caused the discrepancy between the values. 3 Familiarity Whereas usage and acceptance are arguments for reuse, a lack of familiarity may limit reuse.
