||Many professionals of the construction sector feel a need for improvement of the Information Technology (IT) that supports their work. Our main hypothesis is that this improvement is strictly dependent of a good knowledge of business activities. This study addresses this issue, introducing a method to adapt IT supported services to business practices. This method is based on a structured approach aiming at (1) identifying Collective Practices, (2) focusing on actors’ Individual Practices and Operations, (3) distinguishing different technology-related Usages and finally (4) selecting or designing adapted IT services relying on precedent analysis. An example based on sustainable project practices will illustrate the approach.
