    Social media for user innovation in Living Labs: a framework to support user recruitment and commitment2013In: Proceedings of the XXIV ISPIM conference, Lappeenranta: Lappeenranta University of Technology Press , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social media are becoming an increasingly relevant channel for user involvement. However, their uptake in Living Labs environments, as a means to engage users in innovation processes, is still limited. The aim of this paper is to explore challenges and opportunities related to the usage of social media for user involvement in co-creative processes, The findings presented emerge both from the available literature and case studies, and emphasise four different dimensions influencing user engagement: facilitator, community, platform and innovation process. Based on these dimensions, the authors propose a basic framework, intended as the point of departure for taking the next step toward the construction and verification of theoretical constructs that can help inform and guide future innovation projects.

    Reality Mining in the Classroom: Simulating social behavior from machine-sensed environmental data2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents three simple applications to let students work with data generated from their mobile phones. The applications can be used as demonstrations for courses in e.g. data mining, business intelligence, and development of digital and web services. One application is entirely web based, the other two require a technology investment of about 200 USD, but the devices may also be an asset for other research/demonstration purposes.

    Support from healthcare services during transition to adulthood – Experiences of young adult survivors of pediatric cancer2016In: European Journal of Oncology Nursing, ISSN 1462-3889, E-ISSN 1532-2122, Vol. 21, p. 105-112Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Improved survival rates of pediatric cancer have drawn attention on how to best facilitate long-term follow up and transition from pediatric to adult care. The transition process is multifactorial and necessitates the joint involvement of the patient, the family and the healthcare providers. The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of support from healthcare services during the transition from adolescence to adulthood described by young adult survivors of pediatric cancer.

    Methods: A mixed method with a convergent parallel design was used to evaluate the experiences of receiving support from healthcare services (eg pediatric oncology and pediatric clinic) during transition from adolescence to adulthood described by young adult survivors of pediatric cancer (n = 213) in a nation wide cross-sectional survey.

    Results: A quantitative assessment of the experienced extent and satisfaction of support from healthcare services to handle physical, mental and social changes to continue life after the disease showed that a majority of the participants had received insufficient support. The qualitative analysis indicated a need for equal roles in healthcare to promote participation, a need to manage and process consequences of the disease, and a need for continuous support.

    Conclusions: During transition to adulthood, there's a need for a personalized care plan that takes a holistic approach towards supporting the young cancer survivor in managing life in the best way. Identifying and handling the individual needs of pediatric cancer survivors is important for providing the resources and support required to increase the likelihood of successful transition to adulthood. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

    Living Lab Principles: Supporting Digital Innovation2012In: The Proceedings of The XXIII ISPIM Conference 2012 Barcelona, Spain - 17-20 June 2012, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation processes are becoming more complex with a need for heterogeneous actors collaborating. One approach to support digital innovation is Living Lab. However, even if Living Lab seems like a promising initiative, there is little guidance of how Living Lab can be setup and managed to support digital innovation processes. The aim with this paper is to provide guidance for Living Lab practice and research by presenting a set of four Living Lab principles and explain how these can be put into Living Lab practice. Derived from Living Lab literature, the principles are established and then elaborated by analysing a Living Lab case study from the perspective of the following principles: Boundary spanning co-creation, Exploration & experimentation, User-centricity, Realism & Authenticity. The analysis of the empirical case study is guided by the following research question: how can digital innovation processes be supported by Living Lab principles?

    Facilitating Social and Cognitive Translation in Innovation Networks2010In: MCIS 2010 Proceedings: Submissions from 2010 / [ed] Angela Sansonetti, 2010, p. Paper 85-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present a two year long interpretative case study based on a Living Lab project. The case study is used to in retrospect investigate cognitive and social translation in a doubly distributed innovation network. By identifying and empirically exemplify how translations occurred, we present insights of how to support cognitive and social translations in these kind of networks. Using the concepts from Yoo et al. (2009) we explore the research question: how can cognitive and social translation be supported in Living Labs? Based on the findings we conclude that Living Labs can support heterogeneous set of actors and knowledge resources by supporting cognitive translation with techniques such as scenarios, mock-ups and prototypes. By working with an iterative process the involved actors can be supported to materialize prior and new knowledge which can be translated between different communities of actors. By setting up and providing a common ground a trading zone can be established supporting the social translations within the network by offering a space where negotiation of interests and alignment of perspectives can be facilitated.

    Design of navigational support for task oriented reading in e-newspapers2006In: Proceedings of the 29th IRIS, 2006, p. 21-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to explore how the navigational support in an e-newspaper should be  designed to support the users task oriented reading behavior. An e-newspaper is a newspaper produced on e-paper, which combines the readability of paper, with the possibilities of digital media such as streaming updates, interactivity and multimedia. One advantage with the e-paper technology is its high contrast and readability; it uses no backlight and only consumes power when the pages are updated. This study is part of the European DigiNews project where three high fidelity e-newspaper prototypes has been produced in cooperation with readers and newspaper designers. These prototypes have been tested on 36 readers to examine how to design navigational support to aid task oriented reading. Six guidelines for have been generated from the results of the study which covers information structure, hyperlinks, feedback and visual cues.

    Challenges with User Involvement in a Living Lab context2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses user involvement in a Living Lab based on the call for research regarding the following challenges: How to select the appropriate users?; How to organize user involvement?; and How to motivate users? We discuss these questions based on empirical experiences from about 100 user involvement activities from the media and health technology application domains of Halmstad Living Lab. We conclude by summarizing our experiences as guidelines addressing these challenges, e.g. User selection criteria specifically derived for each case; Mix between traditional and virtual activities; Facilitate instead of categorize; Acknowledge that motivational factors might differ between users and domain fields.

    Exploring Social Aspects Influence on Change in Network Relationships: A Case Study of Digital Innovation2012In: International Journal of Social and Organizational Dynamics in IT, ISSN 2155-6334, E-ISSN 2155-6342, Vol. 2, no 4, p. 14-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation processes are becoming more and more networked, and actors are growing dependent oneach other’s competences, resources and knowledge. In networks developing digital innovation actors needto identify, mobilize, and integrate diverse and heterogeneous knowledge resources to be able to innovatesuccessfully. Social aspects are important where heterogeneous actors connect, negotiate, and adjust to eachother’s perspectives. The aim of this paper is to explain how social aspects such as trust, commitment andpower, influence changes in relationships in digital innovation networks. A case study approach was selectedto study events involving multiple actors in an innovation and development project aimed at introducingtechnology that aids elderly, home care personnel and next of kin by improving the management of homecare visits. Based on the authors’ findings they present a model for how social aspects influence changes inrelationships and conclude by making six propositions. Copyright © 2012, IGI Global.

    Open Innovations in Small Enterprises - A Living Lab Approach2009In: Proceedings of The XX ISPIM Conference Vienna, Austria - 21-24 June 2009, The International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) , 2009, p. 10-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we have addressed the research question: In what way does a Living Lab approach influence the innovation process from a small enterprise perspective? Within Halmstad Living Lab we have performed approximately 50 Living Lab activities involving user and enterprise representatives within the health technology sector. We have discussed our experiences according to literature on innovation and competence in relation to a Living Lab approach and have identified four challenges that need to be addressed. Examples of these challenges are; In what way can Living Lab activities contribute to expand the competencies within the small enterprises and how to create openness between enterprises and other stakeholders regarding legal documents such as IPR and patent?

    Digital innovation processes are becoming more and more networked, where stakeholders are growing dependent of each other’s competences, resources and knowledge. In networks working with digital innovation, actors need to identify, mobilize and integrate diverse and heterogeneous knowledge resources to be able to innovate successfully. Social aspects seem to be important at the boundaries of communities where heterogeneous actors connect, negotiate and adjust to each other’s perspectives. The aim with this paper is to explain what role relationships play in digital innovation networks as well as to describe how social aspects influence these relationships. A case study approach was selected to study events involving multiple stakeholders in a development project aimed at introducing technology that aid elderly, home care personnel and next of kin by improving the management of home care visits. We describe how social aspects such as trust, interest, and commitment between actors influence the relationships. © 2012 IEEE.

    Methods and Techniques for User Contribution: Challenges from a Living Lab Perspective2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses user contribution in innovation processes from a Living Labperspective. We view Living Lab as a milieu in which specific methods are used to involvedifferent stakeholders in open innovation processes to create and validate IT-products andservices in a real world setting. The involvement of different stakeholders is of particular importance in a Living Lab to secure the development of usable products and services. In thispaper we focus on methods and techniques for user contribution in innovation processes by discussing our own experiences based on 100 activities conducted within four differentresearch projects. The purpose of this paper is to discuss our experiences of methods andtechniques for user contribution in relation to three different aspects: a) phase in the innovation process, b) kind of user contribution and c) type of users, all in relation to a Living Lab perspective. We conclude that there is a need to translate face to face methods and techniques to distributed user involvement activities to be able to scale up and use these in a Living Lab setting.

    Beställarkompetens vid upphandling och utveckling av IT: Om kompetensframväxt i skuggan av kunskapsfragmentering2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Ever since IT started to become important and strategic assets in organizational practices, systems acquisitions have been a challenging and complex endeavor. There are seemingly never ending reports of unsuccessful IT acquisitions and lack of systems acquisition competence (beställarkompetens in Swedish). The aim of this thesis is to shed deeper light on what systems acquisition competence is about, and to present a framework for understanding its nature and premises in IT-projects. This thesis is grounded on three concurring problem areas. First, IT projects are notoriously prone to problems. This despite of decades of IS and ISD research on methods, project management, etc. While there is extensive knowledge about the development process, methods, techniques, tools, developers' skills and competence requirements, less is known about systems acquisition competence. Second, and following from the first, there are few established or generally agreed upon definitions, or substantial theories, of this distinct competency. Third, there is still a limited understanding of systems development from a learning or knowledge work point of view. This thesis deals with the concept of “beställarkompetens”, and theorizes the underlying empirical phenomena; knowledge work in IT project practices. Drawing on exploratory empirical work in an interpretive multiple case study, this thesis investigates 10 governmental IT projects, their outcomes and stakeholders perceptions of acquisition competency. This investigation was supported by theories of individual and organizational perspectives on learning, as well as knowledge theory, competence theory and systems development theory. This thesis presents a theoretical perspective suggesting that acquisition competence can be understood as an emergent quality of the system development process, that is, as dynamic rather than static knowledge. Further, it suggests that key stakeholders interaction, collaboration, situated learning and competence renewal are prime mechanisms to ensure sufficient systems acquisition competence and project performance. One important practical implication from this research is the identification of fragmentation of knowledge as a main threat to successful outcome of IT projects. The contribution is a theoretical framework useful for understanding “beställarkompetens” in systems development contexts, and a tentative theory of emergent competence.

    Master Curriculum in Digital Service Innovation2018In: American Conference on Information Systems 2018, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    related to health, the environment, societal safety and economy. In short, we live in a society that is in need of innovation and new ways of thinking. In this context, information technology (IT) and digital service innovation have important roles to play. This is reflected in the work done with national and international agendas for digitalization as a path to offer citizens new types of services. This includes digital services that make the work of health professionals easier, raise patient safety, improve health care, make vehicles safer, lower maintenance costs and the impact on the environment. To meet the challenges of the future with innovation, there is an increased need for expertise in sustainable digital service development.

    In this talk we report from the work of designing a curriculum for an international master program “Digital Service Innovation”. The program addresses the need for digital competence in tomorrow’s society. The curriculum fronts digital innovation and digital services as fundamental concepts (Fichman et al., 2014). In short, a digital service innovation, for example, can lead to new experiences, distribution methods, business models, types of interaction, and digital services that enhance the value of physical products. The meaning of digital service innovation in this context is the design of new, significantly improved or previously untested combinations of digital services; services that create new and sustainable values. Thus, there is an emphasis on value creation (Henfridsson et al., 2018) meaning that the proposed education draws on sustainability (economic, social and environmental) as a framework for value creation and progression of critical thinking (Ågerfalk et al., 2017).

    For students, formal higher education is a valuable investment for a career in the IT labor market (Setor and Joseph, 2016). The curriculum is designed, through the introduction of new pedagogical approaches, and through sustainability as a perspective on digital service innovation, to contribute to future competence provision. Digitalization is an important driver companies’ competiveness. The developments in digital technology alter the labor market’s competence requirements and causes a complex and multifaceted services sector. In Europe, it is at present estimated that one million people with IT skills are missing in the European labor market. The curriculum is designed in collaboration with companies, engaging in the planning, development and implementation of the curriculum, in order to help to ensure its relevance to the students and the industry.

    Teaching Strategies for Bringing Authenticity and Contextual Relevance to Information Systems Students2014In: ICERI2014 Proceedings: 7th International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation: November 17th-19th, 2014 — Seville, Spain / [ed] L. Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez, I. Candel Torres, Valencia: IATED Academy , 2014, p. 3373-3378Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information Systems (IS) education deals with increasingly abstract and complex design challenges. Through digital innovation, the field continuously expands to new application areas. To develop design competence, students need to build up a repertoire of experiences enabling in-depth understanding of use context and design settings. Most students are young and have limited workplace experience.  These circumstances are challenging to IS education and teaching. In this paper we share experiences from teaching and designing IS education to be adapted to this situation. We propose three teaching strategies for bringing authenticity and contextual relevance to IS education; (1) teaching by doing together, (2) enable authentic experiences, and (3) critical formative dialogue.

    Application of self-determination theory in the e-health industry – promoting sustainable exercise motivation2015In: Proceeding: 14th European Congress of Sport Psychology: Sport Psychology: Theories and Applications for Performance, Health and Humanity: 14-19 July 2015, Bern, Switzerland / [ed] Olivier Schmid & Roland Seiler, Bern: University of Bern , 2015, p. 372-372Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Developing tailored digital interventions for exercise motivation by applying behavioral theory into existing web services in cooperation with the e-health industry could create a mutual base for experience exchange and practical implications. It could also add higher standards to e-health business by providing a scientifically sound and trustworthy foundation for digital solutions. This project aims to design an interactive tool grounded in sport and exercise psychology and combined with the latest expertise from information technology and innovation science, considering e-health industrial requirements and user needs. A main objective is to test the efficacy of using Self-Determination Theory (SDT) in designing, constructing and evaluating an exercise intervention. The digital intervention is based on a literature review mapping exercise motivation related to self-determination theory, complemented by qualitative cross-disciplinary interaction design methodologies, such as qualitative analysis of interviews and contextual observation capturing participant goals, behaviour, preferences, attitudes and frustrations. Intervention contents are essentially autonomy supportive structures, goal-setting support and relapse prevention, self-regulation structures, health information and web links. In February 2015 the intervention prototype will be pilot tested in a randomized controlled trial (RCT), involving existing members and clients (N > 10 000) of two health service companies. Outcomes relate to self-determined exercise motivation (The Basic Psychological Needs in Exercise Scale and The Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire-2) and exercise behaviour, measured both by self-report measures (Godin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire) and step counters. The RCT contains three measure points in order to allow advanced analyses of change and mechanisms based on the SDT-process model and motivational profiles. Latent growth curve and structural equation models will primarily be used to analyse data. This pilot study will create a baseline for elaboration into a second phase, were the digital tool will be further developed and longitudinally tested and evaluated over a nine months period. © 2015 University of Bern, Institut of Sport Science

    Digital innovations and self-determined exercise motivation: a person-centred perspective2014In: Vitalis – Nordens ledande eHälsomöte 2014: Vetenskapliga papers presenterade vid Vitalis konferens, Svenska Mässan, Göteborg, 8-10 april 2014, Göteborg: Vitalis & Sahlgrenska akademin, Göteborgs universitet , 2014, p. 22-25Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Health care costs are increasing twice as fast as wealth, making health promotion and development of cost-effective care increasingly important in order to generate sustainable health care solutions. E-health, applications and interactive tools for exercise promotion flourish; but despite this and an overflow of information regarding health benefits of regular physical activity, exercise adherence has proven to be a significant challenge. This article concerns a project aimed to design an interactive tool based on comprehensive knowledge from the field of psychology combined with expertise from information technology and innovation, based on e-health industrial requirements and user needs. The research group will, together with the expertise and infrastructure of the collaborating companies Health Profile Institute AB and Tappa Service AB, support and progress an existing PhD-project on digital interventions in exercise motivation. This will be done by designing; applying and evaluating a person-centred digital intervention prototype for exercise motivation and adherence enhancement based on Self-Determination Theory.

    Digital interventions in self-determined exercise motivation – interdisciplinary innovations2015In: ISBNPA 2015: Advancing Behavior Change Science : 3rd – 6th June 2015: Abstract Book, 2015, p. 592-592Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose:There is a need for scientifically sound and theory based tools and services in e-health. In this project knowledge from the field of psychology will be complemented by expertise in information technology and innovation science in designing a digital intervention based on Self-determination theory (SDT) aiming to facilitate exercise motivation.

    Methods:The intervention will be tested by a three wave RCT design in a population of e-health clients (n = 200) in a web based exercise service. Sensors (step counters) and self-reports (Godin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire) will be used to measure objective and subjective exercise behavior while instruments based on SDT (Basic Psychological Needs in Exercise Scale and Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire-2 ) will measure factors related to motivation.  Advanced mediation variable analyses (MVA) and latent growth curve models (LGCM) will be used to explore motivational processes, changes and profiles in relation to exercise behavior.

    Expected Results:Based on the SDT process model, it is hypothesized that a (digital) environment supporting basic psychological need satisfaction will facilitate internalization and enhanced self-determined motivation, which in turn will have a positive effect on exercise behavior.

    Conclusions:Clarifying mechanisms and indirect effects provide knowledge of how intervention effects could be interpreted and understood. Combining high level research design like RCT and advanced analyses as MVA provides valuable contributions to the understanding of theoretical mechanisms of motivation that could inform the tailoring of effective interventions promoting healthy exercise behaviours.  In addition, the project might form a prosperous interdisciplinary fusion generating innovative and theory based digital solutions for e-health.

    Digital Innovations and Self-determined exercise motivation: an interdisciplinary approach2015In: Proceedings of The 6th International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics: IMCIC March 2015. Orlando, Florida., 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In face of escalating health care costs, new technology holds great promise for innovative solutions and new, more sustainable health care models. Technology centers around the individual, allowing for greater autonomy and control in health issues and access to tailored information and customized health behavior interventions. While this offers good opportunities for both public health impact and improved well-being at individual levels, it also emphasizes the need for properly designed e-health models firmly based on scientific principles and adequate theoretical frameworks. Consequently, this project aims to design an interactive tool utilizing an interdisciplinary approach combining motivational theory with the fields of information technology and business model innovation. In collaboration with two companies from the e-health industry, the purpose is to design, apply and evaluate a person-centered interactive prototype for maintainable and self-determined exercise motivation.

    Abstract [en]

    The prospects are clear: we will probably live longer. The number of people aged 65 and up will increase enormously over the next few decades. Society will change as a result, but in what manner?

    Europe - and, in fact, probably the world - faces the challenge of preventing loneliness and isolation amongst a growing group of senior people. The oldest part of the population is at particular risk of becoming isolated and lonely as they grow older and their work-related networks erode. While working in the field of technology and aging, the authors discovered that there is a whole new field to be explored, namely the phenomenon of connectedness.

    This book is written by a group of authors with very different backgrounds, varying from business, ICT, marketing, anthropology, medicine, design and computer interaction. They all felt the urge to explore this field of connectedness and they discovered new opportunities for the emerging market of ‘aging-driven design’.

    By unfolding the very nature of relationships and age-based transitions in life, the authors invite the reader to join them in an effort to design for connectedness: to reframe the picture, rethink our options and reinvent how to connect!

    Formal Learning Sequences and Progression in the Studio: A Framework for Digital Design Education2016In: Journal of Information Technology Education: Innovations in Practice, ISSN 2165-3151, E-ISSN 2165-316X, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 35-52Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how to leverage the design studio learning environment throughout longterm Digital Design education in order to support students to progress from tactical, well-defined, device-centric routine design, to confidently design sustainable solutions for strategic, complex, problems for a wide range of devices and platforms in the digital space. We present a framework derived from literature on design, creativity, and theories on learning that: (a) implements a theory of formal learning sequences as a user-centered design process in the studio; and (b) describes design challenge progressions in the design studio environment modeled in seven dimensions. The framework can be used as a tool for designing, evaluating, and communicating course progressions within – and between series of – design studio courses. This approach is evaluated by implementing a formal learning sequence framework in a series of design studio courses that progress in an undergraduate design-oriented Informatics program. Reflections from students, teachers, and external clients indicate high student motivation and learning goal achievement, high teacher satisfaction and skill development, and high satisfaction among external clients.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how to leverage the design studio learning environment throughout long-term education in order to support students to progress from tactical, well-defined, device-centric routine design, to confidently design sustainable solutions for strategic, “wicked”, and device-agnostic problems. We present a model that describes design challenge progressions in the design studio environment based on six dimensions derived from literature on design, creativity, and theories on learning. This contribution can be used as a tool for designing course progressions within – and between – series of design studio courses, and is exemplified with a four-step studio progression in a three-year undergraduate design-oriented informatics program.

    Society’s use of increasingly complex information technology is, in a long-term perspective, shaped by the way we train our future designers and developers of information systems. By preparing students for practice on the field, in complex use-contexts, we aim to help student’s bridge theory and practice, thereby helping them incorporate procedural knowledge and reflective practice in their skill repertoire. This paper presents a new course structure founded on active, contextual, and peer-based formative learning. Based on student and teacher reflections from two implementations of a course in Interaction Design, we find that our approach enhances the students’ understanding, and assimilation, of the reflective aspect of interaction design practice.

    Building an Experience Framework for a Digital Peer Support Service for Children Surviving from Cancer2013In: Proceedings of Interaction Design and Children (IDC'13), New York, NY: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013, p. 269-272Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Childhood cancer survivors adjust to the physical, mental, and social difficulties associated with their illness and treatment. This process can be facilitated by social support from peers. For children, this is often problematic due to geographical, clinical, and age-related limitations. This paper reports on a stakeholder assessment study that confirms the relevance of a digital peer support service for childhood cancer survivors. The analysis establishes where in the existing health care process the digital peer support service should be introduced, what actors play a key role in facilitating service onboarding and use, and characterizes desirable user experience qualities. The analysis also yields a collection of design challenges to be addressed in the development of the digital peer support service. Copyright 2013 ACM.

    Effects of Using Child Personas in the Development of a Digital Peer Support Service for Childhood Cancer Survivors2017In: Journal of Medical Internet Research, ISSN 1438-8871, E-ISSN 1438-8871, Vol. 19, no 5, article id e161Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Peer support services have the potential to support children who survive cancer by handling the physical, mental, and social challenges associated with survival and return to everyday life. Involving the children themselves in the design process allows for adapting services to authentic user behaviors and goals. As there are several challenges that put critical requirements on a user-centered design process, we developed a design method based on personas adapted to the particular needs of children that promotes health and handles a sensitive design context.

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of using child personas in the development of a digital peer support service for childhood cancer survivors.

    METHODS: The user group's needs and behaviors were characterized based on cohort data and literature, focus group interviews with childhood cancer survivors (n=15, 8-12 years), stakeholder interviews with health care professionals and parents (n=13), user interviews, and observations. Data were interpreted and explained together with childhood cancer survivors (n=5) in three explorative design workshops and a validation workshop with children (n=7).

    RESULTS: We present findings and insights on how to codesign child personas in the context of developing digital peer support services with childhood cancer survivors. The work resulted in three primary personas that model the behaviors, attitudes, and goals of three user archetypes tailored for developing health-promoting services in this particular use context. Additionally, we also report on the effects of using these personas in the design of a digital peer support service called Give Me a Break.

    CONCLUSIONS: By applying our progressive steps of data collection and analysis, we arrive at authentic child-personas that were successfully used to design and develop health-promoting services for children in vulnerable life stages. The child-personas serve as effective collaboration and communication aids for both internal and external purposes.

    Co-constructing Child Personas for Health-Promoting Services with Vulnerable Children2014In: CHI '14 Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Toronto, ON, Canada: ACM Press, 2014, p. 3767-3776Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The availability of health-promoting resources for young children diagnosed with cancer who are transitioning from intensive care to everyday life is limited. In the context of designing digital peer support services for children who are considered vulnerable due to clinical and age-related aspects, there are several challenges that put critical requirements on a user-centered design process. This paper reports on a new method for co-constructing child-personas that are tailored for developing health-promoting services where empirical data is restricted due to practical and ethical reasons. In particular, we are proposing to focus children design workshop sessions on salutogenesis, and complement this with a pathogenic perspective by interviewing healthcare professionals and parents. We also introduce the use of proxy personas, and redemption scenarios in the form of comicboards, both collaboratively constructed by children and designers through storytelling. By applying four progressive steps of data collection and analysis we arrive at authentic child-personas that can be used to design and develop health-promoting services for children in vulnerable life stages.

    Abstract [en]

    A trend today is to disseminate information fast and make it available for everyone. In municipalities the implementation and use of intranets as a communication channel for the dissemination of information is growing. All employees in municipalities are not working in an office and have limited access to the technology; they can not visit the intranet every day. This paper presents a study of how available communication channels are used to disseminate information to employees in municipalities. The results are presented as guidelines promoting the use of intranet as a communication channel and design of further research is presented. © The authors, except as noted.

    Guidelines for enhanced Intranet use: a study of dissemination of information to field workers within municipalities2004Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The development and use of new technology enables our society and organizations to disseminate information very quickly. Citizens in the industrialized world have access to information using the World Wide Web and organizations can provide both customers and employees with information using intranets. This thesis investigates how municipalities disseminate information to employees using intranets or traditional communication channels such as telephone, mail, paper handouts and weekly-letters.

    Municipalities are good examples of organizations that have employees with limited access to technology and where a considerable number of the employees are working out in the field and do not have access to an intranet and its content during their daily work. The municipalities in Sweden implement intranets to disseminate information with the purpose of efficient communication with everyone in the organization simultaneously and to promote cooperation between various departments.

    A study of 10 municipalities in Sweden focusing on the dissemination of information through intranets is presented. Previous research shows that the content must be relevant, fill a need and add a value for the users otherwise the motivation for using it is lost. Therefore, an investigation of the publishing process and the routines of the information provider have been carried out with the purpose of determining how the intranets can be designed to satisfy these requirements. The most important question is how the users actually use an intranet when they have limited access to technical resources. To answer this question users have been interviewed to investigate their motivation, attitude and the information need in relation to dissemination. During the investigation three municipality employees were interviewed, the information provider, the middle-managers and the field workers. The interviews have focused on the following themes; the user's satisfaction, the content of the information, the information strategies, the available and used communication channels and finally the knowledge and awareness possessed by the actors regarding the potentials of the intranet.

    The results of the study will be presented as recommendations for municipalities and other organizations with a similar structure. The usefulness and the relevance of the guidelines were established through evaluation with the participating actors. The guidelines will support the organizations and dissemination of information to field workers in public organizations. They will also raise awareness and support the potentials of the intranet with regards to communication opportunities, discussion forums and sharing of experiences between departments.

    Mobile service value: presenting the newspaper publisher view on how to attract users and advertisers2006In: Proceedings of the 29th IRIS, 2006, p. 19-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents results from a study of news publisher’s perceptions of reader and advertiser value of mobile services. Literature on mobile service features and benefits has been used to discuss these values. The study was conducted in 10 European newspaper publishing organizations. The data on the value perceptions was analyzed iteratively to discover patterns of attributes, and resulted in a set of values for readers respectively advertisers. These finding suggest a re-shaped service model for newspaper publishers. The perception of reader values are availability, experience, relevance, sociability, and credibility, and of advertiser value mass coverage, targeting, tracking and mediating. This set of value attributes can be of guidance for content-providing organizations attempting to practice a value-centered approach to mobile service design.

    Value proposition in m-commerce: exploring service provider and user perceptions2007In: Proceedings of 6th Annual Global Mobility Roundtable, 2007, p. 19-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Adoption of mobile services and m-business outcomes has not yet reached expectations. The uncertainties in m-commerce are still many occasioning a need to explore challenges and opportunities. This study provides empirical data on perceptions of value proposition in m-commerce from the supplier as well as the demand side. The first is addressed in an interview study with newspaper publishers that offer mobile services, and the second in a broad survey of 1388 mobile service users. The findings show that there are similarities as well as differences in perceptions of value held by service providers and users of mobile services. Ubiquity and service provider/user relationship were identified as general service characteristics whereas localization, personalization, convenience and socialization were identified to be mobile service value dimensions. The aim is to provide useful insights for service providers to better meet the market demands in consumer m-commerce.

    Abstract [en]

    As most of today’s media houses publish in multiple channels, theyalso exist in a multitude of infrastructures. Given the ongoing diffusion ofpersonal computers, handheld devices, and mobile telephones as well as theadvent of new technologies such as the e-paper, a new type of ubiquitousinformation environment is emerging. In this paper we give an update on thedevelopment of e-paper technology and provide a literature review ofinfrastructure issues in ubiquitous information environments. From empiricalresults from 19 interviews and 9 workshops with newspaper managers anddesigners in Sweden, Belgium, France and the Netherlands, we address thefollowing research question: What infrastructure considerations arise with theintroduction of a new channel in a ubiquitous media environment?

    Advertising Challenges in Ubiquitous Media Environments2010In: Handbook of Research on Mobile Marketing Management / [ed] Key Pousttchi, Dietmar G Wiedemann, Hershey, PA: Business Science Reference , 2010, p. 77-93Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile advertising opportunities have attracted interest from industry and academics as a response to the trend of diffusion of new mobile technology. One industry particularly interested in new advertising opportunities is the newspaper industry. Many media houses envision a future multi-channel media environment supporting device independent, anytime, anywhere publishing, i.e. a Ubiquitous Media Environment (UME). In this paper we explore how ubiquitous advertising challenges the role of media houses. Ubiquitous advertising refers to advertising in a UME, anytime, anywhere and in any device. Based on results from interviews and workshops with advertisers and publishers we discuss how media houses traditional role is challenged. We contribute with an understanding of how media houses can develop their role to succeed with ubiquitous advertising and to m-advertising literature with insights into the dynamics of balancing consumer and advertiser value of ubiquitous advertising.

    Designing and evaluating the calm electronic newspaper2006In: Proceedings of the 14th European Conference on Information Systems, ECIS 2006 / [ed] Jan Ljungberg, Göteborg: IT-universitetet, Göteborgs universitet , 2006, p. 12-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from an ongoing action research study concerning the design of the future e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper on e-paper technology. The e-paper innovation is of great importance to the newspaper publishers since it has the potential of eventually replacing the printed newspaper due to its readability and high contrast. This study addresses the challenge of how to design calm user experience of the e-newspaper. The action research approach followed the canonical action research method, in collaboration with publisher, reader and advertiser clients. The activities include a range of data collection techniques such as project meetings, workshops, interviews and prototype testing. In the diagnosing phase we identified the core challenges for designing the e-newspaper which directed us to the literature of calm technology. Three design principles for calm user experience were formulated in the action planning phase, followed by designing three e-newspaper prototypes, which embeds the design principles, in the action taking phase. The prototypes were evaluated with 36 readers in the evaluating phase and the outcome of these evaluations was later assessed in collaboration with newspaper designers for specifying learning. The results indicate that the design principles support calm user experience.

    From Multi Channel Publishing towards a Ubiquitous Media Environment2008In: Journal of Graphic Technology, ISSN 1544-9599, E-ISSN 1544-9602, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 126-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As most of today’s media houses publish in multiple channels, they also exist in a multitude of infrastructures. Given the ongoing diffusion of personal computers, handheld devices, and mobile telephones as well as the advent of new technologies such as the epaper, a new type of ubiquitous media environment is emerging. Drawing on this background we address the research question what are the challenges when aligning a new promising technology (such as the e-paper) with existing value networks enabling value creation in ubiquitous media environments? In this paper we report from a study with newspaper publishers in Sweden, Belgium, France and the Netherlands consisting of 18 interviews and 9 workshops. The findings show that value networks in a multiple channel publishing environment are closely related to infrastructure environment. The nature of ubiquitous media environment will have implications on value networks openness and flexibility. Value networks will need a fluid structure to cope with changes in very short cycles.

    Mobile Service Adoption: the Swedish Case Between 2006 and 20082008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the development of mobile service adoption between 2006 and 2008 using the Global Acceptance of Technology model (GAT) for categorization. Two online surveys were conducted, one in 2006 and one in 2008. The online questionnaires were presented at the web sites at two Swedish newspapers with comparable circulation. The sample from 2006 includes 131 respondents and the 2008 sample include 152 respondents. The samples have comparable distribution of gender, age and mobile phone penetration. The findings show a positive development in mobile service adoption in Sweden from 2006 to 2008, e.g. a large portion of the users have upgraded their mobile phones to 3G, the cost is nolonger an important barrier for adoption and users seem to be more acquainted with using mobile services and therefore do not regard mobile services to be as complicated. However, the value of mobile services was generally rated lower in 2008 than in 2006, suggesting a new challenge for the mobile service producers.

    The vision of ubiquitous media services: How close are we?2007In: Human interface and the management of information: Symposium on Human Interface 2007, held as part of HCI International 2007, Beijing, China, July 22 - 27, 2007 : proceedings. P. 2, Interacting in information environments / [ed] Michael J. Smith, Gavriel Salvendy, Berlin / Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2007, p. 222-232Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The high penetration of mobile devices implies that we are closing up to the vision of ubiquitous media environments. This paper reports from a broad survey about barriers, use patterns, and motivations for using mobile media services. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of mobile service adoption process by studying users in different phases of the adoption process. The findings imply that mobile services are still not adopted and ubiquitously ingrained in use patterns. There is still a long way to go.

    Engaged Design Science: Developing Design Visions for the future e-Newspaper2010In: ICIS 2010 Proceedings - Thirty First International Conference on Information Systems, Atlanta: Association for Information Systems, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports the development of design visions for the future electronic (e-) newspaper. The ambition is to bring together the features of printed newspapers with the possibilities of online media. In an engaged design science research project we together with representatives of the newspaper industry and newspaper readers identified the three design challenges genre awareness, stress and lack of control, and obstruction. We also developed the guiding design metaphor of a calm e-reading experience and three design principles provision of media recognition support, support for user control, and support for focus on content. The design principles were evaluated through e-newspaper prototypes and on this basis we revised the design principles which led to a design theory for e-reading solutions on and for digital media.

    Ambidexterity under digitalization: A tale of two decades of new media at a Swedish newspaper2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 276-288Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The digitalization of the newspaper industry represents a significant challenge for incumbent companies to engage new technologies. Many companies in the industry have had to seek new markets through digital technologies to survive. This paper explores how one of the largest Swedish newspapers, Aftonbladet, has strategically embraced new media and new markets. We report a decade of engaged scholarship based on interviews and archival analysis that covers 20 years of strategic acts at the company. We consider this effort as a case of organizational ambidexterity under digitalization. The analysis seeks to extend theoretical understanding of the interrelationships between strategic intent and technological choice. The paper contributes to the understanding of ambidexterity under digitalization by theoretically framing it in terms of strategic acts. The research suggests that digitalization implies a more complex ambidexterity interrelationship between old and new markets and technologies. As digitalization enables the loosening of previously tight couplings, the clear theoretical distinction between old and new, and critically, the unproblematic transition, is brought into question. The paper suggests replacing the notion of an orderly shift from the old to the new with ambidexterity under digitalization as a duality of both old and new undergoing continual reconfiguration. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd

    A blended model for student-centered supervision of thesis work in higher education2016In: ICERI2016 Proceedings, Valencia: IATED , 2016, p. 906-914Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thesis work is challenging to both students and supervisors. The traditional model of supervision is that one supervisor individually supervises thesis work. In higher education this model has been challenged with new approaches such as blended group supervision to make the process more interactive and to provide support for students to complete the thesis work on time. In this paper we report from an effort to design a model for blended group supervision with the aim to provide structure and support for students as well as supervisors. The model is discussed in relation to the theoretical concepts zone of proximal development and scaffolding.

    Designing an educational curriculum for the digital future: an international master in "Digital Service Innovation”2018In: EDULEARN18 Proceedings / [ed] L. Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez & I. Candel Torres, IATED , 2018, p. 6317-6323Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the design of an international master’s curriculum in Digital Service Innovation. Digitalization and the rapid development in information technology (IT) are fundamentally reshaping society. This development brings with it an increasing need for mastery of digital service innovation. The international master's program Digital Service Innovation addresses this need by studying digitalization, digital resources for value creation, and educating students in how to design innovative digital services. Digital Service Innovation is a two-year master’s program focused on sustainable value creation. Year one focuses on the concept of innovation and design driven problems solving. Year two focuses on conceptualization, design of digital services. The final degree project gives students the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in a design study, interacting with companies and public authorities. This is expected to improve the students' ability to understand how digital service innovation is connected to business requirements, and identify new digital services or applications. All to prepare students for working professionally in the field of digital service innovation.

Proceedings / [ed] Bergvall-Kåreborn, Birgitta & Nielsen, Peter Axel, Heidelberg; New York; Dordrecht; London: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2014, p. 49-61Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation is rapidly reshaping society, affecting fundamental aspects of our everyday activities and lives. This development is accompanied with benefits as well as social dilemmas. In this paper we approach this class of challenges in IS digital innovation research. We investigate how social challenges are attended in research agendas, and reflect upon social challenges emerging from a digital service innovation project. Based on the empirical case, we present a scenario that illustrates how social challenges can unfold in digital service innovation. The case exemplifies three conflicts of interest that are used to discuss implications for the research agendas for digital innovation. We propose that explicit attention is paid to social and ethical challenges, taking a large scale and interdisciplinary approach on social and ethical challenges in digital ecosystems.
