This paper highlights some important issues arisen in the practice of formulating information systems (IS) projects which reflect what is also happening elsewhere in the social sciences. IS has become a 'broad church' that includes academics and practitioners in several areas of theory and application. It is not only important to facilitate understanding and communication among individuals, but to be able to engage into forms of collaboration with others. The paper focuses on suggesting ways of enabling collaborations to develop between those involved in exploring new projects and ideas, with a view that these could be facilitated if we assume continuous and systemic attitude of engagement with ‘other’ people. This attitude would require going beyond what is considered relevant for IS as a discipline.
