Sistemas de informação envolvem hardware, software e “peopleware”. A parte menos previsível e talvez a mais complexa desses sistemas talvez seja esse último componente. Por isso, ele nunca deve ser desprezado ao se desenvolver ou implementar sistemas. Contudo, o peopleware não é pouco explorado por cientistas ou engenheiros da computação. Nessa palestra, vamos discutir onde os estudiosos de sistemas de informação podem buscar fundamentos teóricos e metodológicos para desenvolver pesquisas mais robustas, que contribuam para melhor compreender o papel dos humanos em sistemas de informação, principalmente, nesses tempos em que as relações humanas são mediadas por computador.
