Abstract:Since its introduction at HICSS-39, Informed Systems has evolved both through and as a process of organizational design for -˜learning in action.’ Fortified by Bruce’s informed learning theory and fostered by Checkland’s soft systems methodology, the approach is catalysed by participatory design, elaborated by action research, and expressed as information experience. The aim throughout is information exchange for knowledge creation through -˜working together.’ Organizational capacity builds as colleagues use information to learn in ever expanding professional contexts. This paper explores aspects of the -˜bridge’ between individual and collective learning through enabling organizational systems and associated professional practices. An Informed Systems Capability Bridge Model and Information Curation and Knowledge Management Map detail processes and elements of a prototype system, generated from original research on co-workers’ information experience. Concluding reflections explore value added synergies from information-centered, action-oriented, technology-enabled, and learning-focused systems design.
