dc.description.abstract This paper stands for IS projects that are carried out practionally, using action-oriented approach and by grounding on recognised frameworks to serve as a foundation for better IS research. We introduce two different IS projects that were implemented to serve both practice and science. The projects differed in several aspects but despite that, both of them were carried out with the help of deep involvement and action-oriented approach that enabled the researcher to gain a full concept of the encounters and details in the IS projects. Thus, the research results are not dependent on interpretation and assumptions that should be made to fulfil apertures or blanks between observations. As one IS project was implemented keeping in mind a framework recognised in prior research, the other IS project was put into practice without any prior model or beforehand planning. With these two different cases we demonstrate the power of pragmatic approach when doing IS research. en
