Abstract [en]

      Like a gardener trying to tame and shape a tree that has run wild, organizations attempts  to tame the possibilities that IT investments offers. The concept of IT value is not new, although in the “post-hype” era the topic has been brought to life and gained a strong focus. If anyone thought that IT value would come easily the complexity of the value process begs the difference. A closer look at the process reveals several different components that is needed to take into consideration in order to be able  to understand the character of IT value. Even the most experienced organizations when it comes to measuring and handling IT value approach the task with a certain level of a fearful respect. It is against this background that the public healthcare organization should be viewed. An organization with an increased focus on IT investments and with no room for failure in combination with strong pressure both from the general public and from within the own organization to maximize value of tax money spent. The public healthcare sector is certainly not new to IT but experience on the concept of IT value measurements is not well documented and is therefore assumed to be at a limited level. The aim of this paper is to take the first steps in outlining the road ahead for a project targeted to study the identifying and measuring of IT value within the public healthcare organization. Hopefully the project will contribute to greater understanding on how to achieve value from IT investments.
