Our work, which this master thesis is based upon, has been committed to analysing the
settings of large-scale events, proposing, and designing an IT-artefact that can be adapted to
different contexts depending on the event. In order to give examples of the contexts of which
the IT-artefact could be used, it was developed tailored to two temporary large-scale events.
Throughout the thesis we have been struggling with the question of how it is possible to
facilitate the co-ordination during large-scale events through visualising tasks and resources.
Our aim has been that the design proposal shall support the sharing of tasks and resources to
facilitate the cooperation among volunteers during the realisation of temporary large-scale
events. We conclude that our design proposal of the IT-artefact should be investigated further
in the settings presented in this thesis and others, as we see prospects to develop and adapt the
design proposal to various large-scale events in the nearby future.
