With the circular economy transition increasingly becoming a political goal, the ability to monitor progress has become key. Over the past few years, monitoring instruments have appeared at the levels of countries and regions. While their effectiveness still has to be proven, a common gap seems to be that they nowhere seem to have been approached emphatically as instantiations of Information Systems, potentially impairing their effectivity. No evidence of a requirements analysis can be found in any monitor. Moreover, approaches to developing this kind of instantiation from an information system perspective still need to emerge. In this paper, the process of building a recently published circular economy monitor for the region of Flanders in Belgium will be assessed from an Action Design Research perspective to elucidate how requirements were taken along during the development. / status: Published online
