Abstract:This result of this research will be an implementation methodology to be used in a practical environment for a regional newspaper publisher in The Netherlands. This methodology helps create new project teams with people with different backgrounds (multidisciplinary) working on cross-medial products. The new framework is based on a well-known framework used when implementing Information Systems (IS): RUP. An IT alignment model has helped to structure the implementation methodology created based on RUP. This alignment model makes sure that all four main areas of any organisation are covered, namely organisation infrastructure and processes, IT infrastructure and processes, business strategy and IT strategy. The implementation methodology also ensures that these four areas stay in balance. RUP has helped to create an implementation methodology, which is based on theoretical models and principles but also includes practical information that has been validated according to various principles. This implementation methodology can be used for (regional) news publishers forming new and improving existing multi-disciplinary and cross-medial teams.
