Summary Using Actor-Network Theory (ANT), this thesis describes arguments and inducements organisations can offer other organisations to participate in Vertical IS standardisation initiatives. To develop public goods such as Vertical IS standards, a persuasive value proposition is needed to encourage participation. Without social interactions between participants, tensions may hinder the progress of standards developments.
