Abstract: The following article is the third in a series of papers related to a project which utilises software design and development techniques to aid in the integration of information technology implementation paradigms and constructs. This has created a practical interactive sequential computer programme, the ITIP. The focus of this paper is IT in an organisational/business setting, technological and behavioural factors are included as they are interrelated and essential in relation to IT implementation. Substantive positivist epistemological, design science and domain-oriented design methodologies have been utilised to discern scope, validity and model architecture.
