The widespread use of innovative approaches to studying information systems in their organizational contexts is increasing our knowledge of the diverse, complex world-building activities of the various actors and stakeholders associated with the system. Unfortunately, in so doing, it is also demonstrating the inadequate nature of many of our theoretical constructs for understanding and explaining these activities. We have a richer picture of what is going on but are unable to match it with a more sophisticated mechanism for explaining it and so can only draw limited implications for theory and practice.
