Abstract

The paper is a work in progress that explores the use of
socio-technical matrices to try and design a fit for purpose
ICT for two sub-Saharan Africa farming communities.
Rooted in Hansen's (2006) socio-technical experiments in
design processes and Summerville and Dewsbury's (2007)
system dependability model, the paper offers a systematic
design route from initial field study results to the development
of use cases and scenarios that are in turn evaluated in
iterative socio-technical matrices. The approach offers a
solution in multi-disciplinary and geographically diverse
structures of design that explore the problem domain, concluding
by highlighting the merits and difficulties of the
approach.
