Example text

Local Anchoring of the Commodian as a Source of Legitimacy Analysis of canvases has shown that over 60 % of the case studies investigated were initiated and carried by commodians. The question arises in these situations as to the legitimacy of implementing a ComMod process: what makes participants in collective action dynamics accept companion modelling dynamics, which comes in interaction, up to taking part in them? The collective key moments, such as interpreting observations from the virtual world to the real system, are times when stakeholders could refuse the interaction between the two dynamics.

Indeed, this flexibility is also a constituent of the companion modelling stance. It offers a contingency in the conditions of each case study, which is not restricted to taking into account the know-how and favourite subjects of each bearer of a case study. Companion modelling is subject therefore to the condition of triple contingencies in order to understand changes proposed by Miettinen and Virkkunen (2005): contingencies in time, stakeholders present and available artefacts (Miettinen and Virkkunen 2005).

5–12 of this book. An Iterative Approach One of three principles underlying the definition of companion modelling is the principle of commitment over time and adaptability. The commodian commits to following the decision-making process in the ways he changes the object, objective or participants. He upgrades his tools and interventions based on changes in the decision-making process during his support time. When we talk about loops and iterations we are not referring to learning theory loops as postulated by Argyris and Schon (1996).
