The increasingly complex environments require information systems that can adapt to the continuous unexpected change that characterizes complex systems. This in turn calls for new design methods that cater for emergent requirements as stakeholders continually learn from the system as it evolves. Any new design methods must focus on continually adapting a system to changes in its environment rather than reaching a well-defined goal. The term agile development is often used to describe such methods. Here change results from stakeholders learning about the system and its context as a system emerges through a number of releases. Agile development is increasing in practice but does not have a theoretical basis. In this paper we examine the practice in an attempt to provide a framework for agile development by examining current trends and from these determine the framework for constructing design processes. The paper suggests a three pillar framework – a design process that focuses on innovation, design thinking as generic cognitive support and domain concepts to provide cognitive support. The paper uses business models as the domain and shows how business building blocks as domain concepts are combined with design thinking into an agile development process. The paper then describes how to organize design spaces and an computer support method.
