Abstract

This article describes the preliminary Information Systems analysis and design process of the Multiview methodology in a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Bangladesh. The project, sponsored by an international donor agency, was intended to provide Technical Assistance (TA) for the NGO in a variety of areas including livelihoods, data analysis, impact monitoring and the development of Management Information Systems (MIS). The central research question being addressed is: can the initial stage of Multiview be presented to and, if found to be of value, be adopted by NGO staff in the Bangladesh context? The article describes how the Multiview methodology as originally devised by Avison and Wood-Harper was applied and partially adapted to meet the needs of the Impact Monitoring Agency (IMA) of the NGO in order to assist with Impact Assessment. Arising issues of the relevance of the methodology, the role of researchers and the sustainability of IS projects are discussed.
