|Abstract:||Conventional wisdom requires all those “professionals” working in a related area are supported by a professional body overseeing the work of these people and promotes the use of best-practice. Despite society’s increasing dependency on software and information systems, the certification and accreditation of practitioners working in this area has been slow to have any impact. Membership of professional bodies is not generally required. Symptomatic of this lack of professional focus is the range of different professional bodies claiming to represent the interests of the IS professional.|
