Abstract The authors describe the ORDIT approach to requirements identification and expression within the context of organization change. ORDIT focuses on the representation of organizational requirements in the design of socio-technical systems which are intended to emphasize the relationships between organizational structure and information technology (IT) systems. The five main components of the ORDIT methodology are discussed, with a focus on the process model and the enterprise model. A process model is a model of the process of eliciting and modeling requirements. One of the main characteristics of the ORDIT process model is the way it has separated these two functions and has shown the relation between them. The ORDIT project has devised an enterprise modeling language to represent the structure of the organization to serve two related but distinct purposes: to determine the requirements owners and their positions and roles within the organization; and to determine the users and their roles and responsibilities within the organization.<<ETX>>
