This paper analyzes collaboration in a distributed, multiparty information system (IS) development and implementation project. Existing research on collabo- ration in IS projects, and particularly in distributed, multiparty IS projects, is reviewed. In addition, col- laboration is empirically analyzed by utilizing a phe- nomenographic approach. Empirical analysis shows that collaboration as a theme emerged strongly. Dif- ferent organizations viewed the project and collabo- ration in the project in divergent ways, but there were also varied and contradictory views within the or- ganizations. Implications both for research and prac- tice are discussed. .
