It is often mentioned that organisational aspects should be incorporated in SDI assessments, yet an assessment instrument is still lacking. In this chapter an approach for assessing organisational aspects of a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) will be developed and used on literature covering management aspects of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and SDIs. Organisational aspects will be analysed by using a multi-view approach that is based on organising metaphors. The implicitly underlying metaphors and paradigms of organisational theory are categorised and provide both a framework for analysis and a basis for intervention.
