    A Boundary Practice Perspective on Co-creation of ICT Innovations2016In: NORDIC CONTRIBUTIONS IN IS RESEARCH (SCIS 2016) / [ed] Snis, U L, Springer Publishing Company, 2016, p. 100-115Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research has shown that collaboration and co-creation among different groups of stakeholders add complexity and challenges to the innovation process. In this paper a study of co-creation in a multi-stakeholder innovation process is presented. The co-creation is explored and described from a boundary practice perspective. The empirical data presented in the study is based on a user-centric innovation project, Free2Ride, where researchers, developers and members of two equestrian clubs co-created a piece of ICT safety equipment consisting of a transmitter (on the horse) and a receiver (application on a smartphone) to be used by equestrian club members during their everyday riding activities. Three episodes were extracted from the empirical data and presented in the paper. From these episodes the researchers have identified four characteristics of the spanning of boundaries in co-creation from a boundary practice perspective. One of the contributions in the papers is a description of boundary practicespanning. The research approach adopted in the study is the action case approach.

    Co-Creation in a Boundary Practice: Lessons Learned from an Engaged Scholarship Approach2013In: 19th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2013): Hyperconnected World: Anything, Anywhere, Anytime, Chicago, Illinois, USA, 15-17 August 2013: Volume 1, Red Hook, N.Y.: Curran Associates, Inc., 2013, p. 757-766Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, Engaged Scholarship is disentangled from a co-creation and boundary practice perspective. The focus is on the attached inside researcher in collaborative basic research and action research project. Within the information systems discipline the intersection between collaborative basic research and action research is not that well explored. An extra interest has been on the transformation of descriptions to proposed actions that takes place in this intersection. From our empirical findings of an Engaged Scholarship project we have identified four lessons learned that could be used as considerations and proposed actions for the attached inside researcher. The lessons learned are derived from four theoretical themes: co-creation, dialogue, boundary practice and boundary objects. The empirical data presented in the article is from a project called Free2Ride, which was a co-creation project between researchers, ICT-developers and members from two equestrian clubs. © (2013) by the AIS/ICIS Administrative Office All rights reserved.

    Facilitating students’ learning outcome of business processes using an ERP2014In: 20th Americas conference on information systems (AMCIS 2014): Smart sustainability: the information systems opportunity, Savannah, Georgia, USA, 7-9 August 2014, Atlanta: Association for Information Systems, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A recurring problem when teaching Business Process Orientation (BPO) is the difficulty students have connecting conceptual knowledge and procedural knowledge. Literature suggests that one solution is to combine different forms of learning, such as hand-on exposure to enterprise resource planning (ERP) together with traditional teaching. This article presents a three step teaching case designed by the authors in order to explore students' learning outcome by using ERP systems together with BPO. The learning outcome of the students was analysed with a focus on connections between conceptual and procedural knowledge. Using Bloom's revised taxonomy we were able to identify connections between students' conceptual and procedural knowledge together with the cognitive processes of understanding, applying and analysing. The result indicates that applying procedural knowledge in an ERP facilitates the students' ability to understand, analyse and evaluate based on conceptual knowledge such as business process orientation.

    Social Bridging Technologies2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Our society is changing. The role which information and communication technologies (ICT) play in our society is growing rapidly and meanwhile the world’s population is ageing. ICT has enabled social network sites (SNS), which are often targeted towards younger people and is therefore less suitable for seniors who find themselves displaced again and again. Through a design research oriented study, we explored the theories of non-traditional computing to find alternative ways of using technology to better meet the needs of seniors. We have found bridging technologies to be a promising domain that could help address the life-changing consequences of population ageing. We have identified four design principles to support the design of bridging technologies, geared towards enabling seniors to interact with social network sites. These principles constitute our final contribution.

    Design av digitala hjälpmedel för att stödja elbilsanvändare2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag ser vi en allt större ökning av eldrivna bilar. Fler länder och världsomfattande organisationer försöker framhäva elbilen för att accelerera dess adaption samt öka dess användning. Denna ökning förhindras bland annat av skillnader i användning av el och tidigare drivmedel som gör det svårt för fossilbilsanvändare att byta till elbil. Problematiken grundar sig i att flera beteenden från användningen av fossildrivnabilar ej är applicerbara i den nya elbilskontexten. Det ökande intresset för elbilar ställer nu nya krav på de hjälpmedel som finns att tillgå i samband med elbilsanvändning. Med dagens utveckling blir allt fler hjälpmedel digitala, vilket ställer krav på dagens designers. Framtidens digitala hjälpmedel behöver tillgodose behov som inte existerat vid användningen av tidigare drivmedel.

    Vi har genom studien tagit fram designförslag med syfte att stödja elbilsanvändare med element från persuasive design, detta med hjälp av design patterns som format. En prototyp designad efter dessa designförslag har sedan utvärderats för att se hur digitala hjälpmedel kan stödja elbilsanvändare. Studien har skett genom en designstudie med ett kvalitativt tillvägagångssätt, där vi utifrån identifierade utmaningar har utvärderat den framtagna prototypen genom scenariodrivna funktionstester. Testerna utfördes av elbilsanvändare och fokuserade på deras upplevda stöd av prototypens funktioner. Studien har skapat förståelse om vad och varför elbilsanvändare upplever svårigheter vid användningen av elbilar och hur digitala hjälpmedel kan underlätta för elbilsanvändare att förändra beteende. Resultatet av denna studie har lett till skapandet av fem designförslag som utvärderats, reviderats och presenteras i slutet av uppsatsen.

    The effects of PACS on radiographer's work practice2007In: Radiography, ISSN 1078-8174, E-ISSN 1532-2831, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 235-240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper identifies and analyses the effects of picture archiving and communica- tion systems (PACS) on radiographers’ work practice. It shows that the introduction of PACS did not simply entail the transfer of data and information from the analogue world to the digital world, but it also led to the introduction of new ways of communicating, and new activities and responsibilities on the part of radiography staff. Radiographers are called upon to work increasingly independently, and individual practitioners require higher levels of professional expertise. In all, this paper demonstrates that new technical solutions sometimes lead to sub- stantial changes in responsibilities in work. In this example, the radiographers’ work practice has become more highly scientific and they are enjoying a higher level of prestige.

    Adoption strategies of social media in B2B firms: a multiple case study approach2018In: The journal of business & industrial marketing, ISSN 0885-8624, E-ISSN 2052-1189, Vol. 33, no 5, p. 730-743Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to clarify business-to-business (B2B) firms’ strategies of social media marketing communication. The study aims to explore the factors contributing to the formation and adoption of integration strategies and identify who the B2B firms target. Design/methodology/approach: A multiple case study approach is used to compare four multinational corporations and their practices. Face-to-face interviews with key managers, and extensive readings and observations of the firms’ websites and social media platforms have been conducted. Findings: The study results in a model, illustrating different processes of selection, adoption and integration involved in the development of social media communication strategy for B2B firms. Major factors involved in determining the platform type, and strategies used within different phases and processes are identified. Research limitations/implications: As the chosen methodology may limit generalizability, further research is encouraged to test the model within a B2B context especially within small and medium enterprises as only large multinational corporations were investigated in this study. Practical implications: The paper provides insight into how B2B marketers can align social media with their firms’ goals through the strategic selection of platforms to reach the targeted audience and communicate their message. Originality/value: The study uncovers the benefits gained by B2B firms’ through interaction with individuals on social media. This is a significant contribution as the value of such interaction was previously undefined and acted as a barrier for adopting social media in some B2B firms. © 2018, Emerald Publishing Limited.

    Wickedness in Design for People Diagnosed with Schizophrenia2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems, ISSN 0905-0167, E-ISSN 1901-0990, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 47-77, article id 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the digitisation of society, e-health technology increasingly supports new design situations that extend those traditional to Information Systems, and therefore need to be better understood. In design for complex, new and sensitive design situations, it is not possible to apply known methods and solutions without a deeper situational understanding. These design situations are fraught with wicked problems that are contradictory and complex. This paper intends to answer how the wickedness of the design situation when designing e-health technology for people diagnosed with schizophrenia can be understood and what consequences the design situation has for the design process. The paper presents a grounded theory analysis of stakeholder interviews and focus group interviews with people diagnosed with schizophrenia. Four wicked problems are identified: struggle of dependence, contradiction of social interaction, contradiction of trust and counteracting improvement behaviour. The problems are interrelated and have consequences for the design, acceptance, use and user involvement in design of e-health technology for people diagnosed with schizophrenia. The paper also shows the viability of using grounded theory for studying and describing situational wickedness. © Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems, 2018.

    Ethics in Health Promoting PD: Designing Digital Peer Support with Children Cured from Cancer2014In: PDC 2014: Reflecting connectedness: Proceedings of the 13th Participatory Design Conference: Volume 1: Research Papers / [ed] Ole Sejer Iversen, Heike Winschiers-Theophilus, Vincenzo D'Andrea, Andrew Clement, Andrea Botero, Keld Bødker, New York, NY: ACM Press, 2014, p. 91-100Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovative design targets new user groups and application areas. One example is health promoting digital services. In such design contexts it is essential to take social and ethical challenges into consideration. In this paper we report from an on-going design research project aimed at designing digital peer support (DPS) for children cured from cancer. Peer support can meet the children’s imperative need for social support. However, the design context is sensitive and gives rise to ethical challenges and considerations. We illustrate how participatory design (PD) activities can be designed to handle ethical challenges when designing for and with children. We present lessons learned, including using familiar activities, using personas and including healthy children when possible. Further, we reflect on the need to proactively design an ethical perspective into the entire design process, introducing the concept Ethics in Design. Copyright 2014 ACM.

    Breadcrumbs of Interaction: Situating Personal Information Management2008In: NordiCHI 2008: Building Bridges : Proceedings of the 5th Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction : Lund, Sweden, 20-22 October, 2008, New York, NY: ACM Press, 2008, Vol. 358, p. 266-273Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The area of Personal Information Management (PIM) primarily deals with how to store, retrieve and share files and other interactional artifacts. According to previous research there is a lack of field studies of actual PIM practices, especially mobile practices. In this article we present findings from an ethnographical study of wireless practice of laptop computers. The study reports on the role of historical interaction resources in a mobile PIM practice as well as the contextual effects on PIM. The findings reveal a PIM-practice highly connected to use situations not always departing from manipulating files and folders, which has been a focus in many previous studies. Designers are encouraged to explore the situated intimate and immediate design space found to be of great importance for the use of these so called Breadcrumbs of Interaction. © 2008 ACM.

    Heterogeneity in Digital Innovation: A Study of the e-Newspaper Case2017In: International Journal of Social and Organizational Dynamics in IT, ISSN 2155-6334, E-ISSN 2155-6342, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on challenges that arise because of the heterogeneous nature of digital innovation. These challenges are studied through a case study involving a two year long research and development project concerning the development of the e-newspaper concept and a demonstrator based on e-paper technology. To enable the exploration of these challenges, a multi-method approach was chosen. The paper is built using a two-step process; first, presenting a framework based on a review of related literature identifying characteristics and aspects of heterogeneity in digital innovation, and secondly, applying this framework into the analysis of the e-newspaper case. Based on the empirical findings, the paper presents a discussion which elaborates on how digital innovation can be organized in order to address the identified challenges with heterogeneity in digital innovation. Furthermore, it is suggested that digital technology targeted towards everyday use is inherently leading to innovation networks of heterogeneous actors as well as heterogeneous users of digital innovation. © 2017, IGI Global

    Integration av informationssäkerhet i organisationers dagliga arbete2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Organisationer i dagens samhälle är beroende av information genererad av informationssystem. Med detta ökar också risken att data läcker ut då anställda inom organisationer hanterar denna information. För att säkerställa information är det viktigt att alla nivåer inom en organisations strategiska, taktiska och operativa nivå tas i beaktning vid integrering av informationssäkerhet. Forskning eftersträvar mer studier kring hur informationssäkerhet kan integreras i organisationer och där studien ska ta alla organisatoriska nivåer i beaktning. 

    I denna studie besvaras följande frågeställning, hur kan informationssäkerhet integreras i organisationers dagliga arbete? Syftet med studien är att bidra med kunskap till organisationers säkerhetsansvariga, som med stöd av studiens svar på frågan, ska möjliggöra en integration av informationssäkerheten i dess organisation. Litteraturstudien visar att två områden är aktuella för vald frågeställning nämligen informationssäkerhet och säkerhetsmedvetenhet. En kvalitativ fallstudie har utförts där data har insamlats i form av intervjuer och säkerhetsdokument.

    Undersökning har identifierat att två områden är viktiga för organisationer att ta hänsyn till när de ska integrera informationssäkerhet i det dagliga arbetet. För att lyckas med integrationen av informationssäkerhet är det viktigt att forma en säkerhetskultur samt att anpassa säkerhetsdokument. Denna integration är beroende av att ledningen visar stöd och engagemang för informationssäkerheten, något som påverkar den normativa förväntningen angående informationssäkerheten hos anställda positivt. Slutligen behöver också en förmedling till de anställda tydliggöras på ett enkelt sätt där anpassade säkerhetsdokumenten förmedlas med omsorg som skapar en ökad säkerhetsmedvetenhet hos de anställda.

    Impact of the organisational culture on primary care staff members' intention to engage in research and development2015In: Journal of Health Organisation & Management, ISSN 1477-7266, E-ISSN 1758-7247, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 234-251Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to understand how organisational culture influences the intentions of primary care staff members (PCSM) to engage in research and development (R&D).

    Design/methodology/approach

    The participants (n = 30) were PCSM employed in a care centre in south-western Sweden. The study had an observational design with an ethnographic approach. The data were collected by means of observations, interviews and analysis of documents.

    Findings

    The results revealed the perceptions of PCSM in two domains, research and clinical practice, both of which existed at three different cultural levels: visible (structures and policy), semivisible (norms and values) and invisible (taken-for-granted attitudes).

    Research limitations/implications

    It is difficult to conduct a purely objective ethnographic study because the investigation is controlled by its context. However, it is necessary to highlight and discuss the invisible level to improve understanding of negative attitudes and preconceptions related to the implementation of R&D in the clinical setting. Practical implications - By highlighting the invisible level of culture, the management of an organisation has the opportunity to initiate discussion of issues related to concealed norms and values as well as attitudes towards new thinking and change in the primary health context.

    Originality/value

    This paper is one of the very few studies to investigate the influence of organisational culture on the intentions of PCSM to engage in R&D.

    Using organizational influence processes to overcome IS implementation barriers: lessons from a longitudinal case study of SPI implementation2014In: European Journal of Information Systems, ISSN 0960-085X, E-ISSN 1476-9344, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 205-222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A fundamental tenet of the information systems (IS) discipline holds that: (a) a lack of formal power and influence over the organization targeted for change, (b) weak support from top management, and (c) organizational memories of prior failures are barriers to implementation success. Our research, informed by organization influence, compellingly illustrates that such conditions do not necessarily doom a project to failure. In this paper, we present an analysis of how an IS implementation team designed and enacted a coordinated strategy of organizational influence to achieve implementation success despite these barriers. Our empirical analysis also found that technology implementation and change is largely an organizational influence process (OIP), and thus technical-rational approaches alone are inadequate for achieving success. Our findings offer managers important insights into how they can design and enact OIPs to effectively manage IS implementation. Further, we show how the theory of organizational influence can enhance understanding of IS implementation dynamics and advance the development of a theory of effective IS change agentry. © 2014 Operational Research Society Ltd.

    Utvärdering av user experience på plattformsoberoende tjänster2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Användning av digitala tjänster är inte längre endast begränsat till en plattform. Användningen av till exempel mobiler och surfplattor har gjort att tjänster idag anpassas för flera plattformar. En plattformsoberoende tjänst är en digital tjänst som kan användas på flera plattformar. Tidigare studier har presenterat karaktäristiska drag som beskriver plattformsoberoende tjänster. De karaktäristiska drag som har definierats är komposition, kontinuitet och följdriktighet. Studier har efterfrågat metoder eller verktyg för utvärdering av kontinuitet och följdriktighet på plattformsoberoende tjänster. Om utvärderingar av kontinuitet och följdriktighet ska kunna genomföras behöver metriker framställas, för att få en gemensam bild av vad som ska utvärderas. Ur empirin framkom det att metrikerna varierar beroende på vad för plattformsoberoende tjänst som utvecklas. Den här studien kommer att presentera ett förslag på ett tillvägagångsätt för att utveckla metriker som stöd för utvärdering av kontinuitet och följdriktighet på plattformsoberoende tjänster.

    Building Collaborative Test Practices: Design Ethnography and WOz in Autonomous Driving Research2018In: IxD&A: Interaction Design and Architecture(s), ISSN 1826-9745, E-ISSN 2283-2998, no 37, p. 12-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article outlines a novel way of performing experimental “Wizard of Oz”(WOz) User Experience (UX)research that specifically targets driving in different levels of self-driving modes. The reasons for exploring the possibilities of combining experimental and ethnographic WOz-testing have been twofold. On the one hand, this mixed-method approach responds to a growing body of critique concerning how the WOz test is biased by the claim that it explores real-life behaviour in an experimental setting. On the other hand, our approach also meets the demands for innovative research methodologies that can contribute to deeper understandings of how to better evaluate and account for human expectations and experiences when automated technologies become integrated in everyday life contexts. This knowledge is inevitable for a broader understanding of the overall user experience and expectations of autonomous driving and, more specifically, building an interdisciplinary collaborative testing approach.

    Mobilt lärande: En studie om hur mobila enheter kan stödja elevers lärandemöjligheter2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mobila enheter används i dagens samhälle i allt fler områden. Ett exempel är inomskolan där det blivit allt vanligare att mobila enheter som till exempel surfplattoranvänds i en-till-en-lösning där varje elev har sin egen enhet som de kan bära medsig. Detta användande har potentialen att förändra hur lärandet sker i skolan ochhur elever lär sig. Med mobilt lärande öppnas det upp nya möjligheter till ett lärandesom inte är begränsat till klassrummet utan som involverar ett informellt lärandesom sker i elevens vardagliga miljö. Tidigare forskning visar att användandet avmobila enheter ger möjligheter till nya läraktiviteter men att det samtidigt behövsmer forskning kring hur de mobila enheterna faktiskt används i undervisningen.Den här studien undersöker hur mobila enheter används i svenska högstadieskoloroch hur de stödjer elevers lärandemöjligheter. Genom en kvalitativ ansats harintervjuer med lärare genomförts för att finna svar på studiens frågeställning.Studien visar på vilka förutsättningar som krävs för att elevers lärandemöjligheterska stödjas samt identifierar fyra områden där elevers lärandemöjligheter stöds.Dessa områden är: lärande i nya miljöer, kommunikation med utomstående,anpassning efter elevers behov och elevers initiativtagande.

    Communicating to Employees the Implementation of Patient Online Access to Their EHR. The Case of Adult Psychiatry in Southern Sweden2016In: Proceedings from The 14th Scandinavian Conference on Health Informatics 2016, Gothenburg, Sweden, April 6-7, 2016, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2016, p. 7-11Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2015 Region Skåne was the first county council in Sweden to add adult psychiatry patients to the civic service of patient online access to their EHR (electronic health records). The initial implementation of the service in somatic care had previously raised both questions and resistance amongst the healthcare professionals. It was thus considered important to inform the professionals involved about the planned introduction in psychiatry well in advance. This paper presents and discusses how well the management was able to do this. The material presented derives from a survey that was distributed to employees in adult psychiatry in Region Skåne just before the introduction of the service. Overall, the results show that different professions receive information through different channels. This indicates that it is important for an employer to use many information and communication channels to reach employees. It is also important to use both interpersonal and mediated communication channels as they serve different purposes.

    Kritikhantering på social media2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The use of social media has increased in recent years. Individuals used it first, andnow it has become a part of multiple companies. Technology can create newopportunities for companies to show them self publicly, create customer relations aswell as communication opportunities. The purposes of using social media arevarious, but the value it brings is not from the platform itself, but from the ways it isbeing used. In order for a company to use social media, there may be reason toaccept and be aware of that criticism addressed to the company will be public.Research indicates that companies are expected to respond to opinions, perceptionsand experiences from customers. However, clear knowledge of how or in what wayis missing. We have through a qualitative study, interviewed representatives fromvarious companies regarding their way of conducting criticism management onsocial media. The study resulted in three overarching themes with underlyingexamples illustrating how companies manage criticism on social media.

    Heuristiker för Sociala Spel: En studie om design och utvärdering av sociala digitala spel2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social digital games have grown in popularity since the genre was established in 2007. Social games are an everyday reality for many people and can be found on- or around social networks such as Facebook. In order to create as qualitative social games as possible, clear directives can be used to know how these games should be designed and evaluated. This study highlights a lack of this type of directives in the form of fully developed heuristics for designing and evaluating social games. To examine how social games can be designed and evaluated initial heuristics were used and then supplemented by a literature review. These complementary heuristics were then examined qualitatively with help of game developers and players. This study resulted in developed heuristics for design and evaluation of social games with playability and sociability in focus.Keywords: social games, heuristics, sociability, playability

    A Historical Account of the Value of Free and Open Source Software: From Software Commune to Commercial Commons2011In: Open Source Systems: Grounding Research: 7th IFIP WG 2.13 International Conference, OSS 2011, Salvador, Brazil, October 6-7, 2011. Proceedings / [ed] Scott A. Hissam, Barbara Russo, Manoel G. Mendonça Neto & Fabio Kon, Berlin/Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2011, Vol. 365, p. 196-207Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Free and open source software has transformed from what has been characterized as a resistance movement against proprietary software to become a commercially viable form of software development, integrated in various forms with proprietary software business. In this paper we explain this development as a dependence on historical formations, shaped by different ways of justifying the use of open source during different periods of time. These formations are described as arrangements of different justificatory logics within a certain time frame or a certain group of actors motivating the use of free and open source software by referring to different potentialities. The justificatory arrangements change over time, and tracing these changes makes it easier to understand how the cultural, economic and social practices of open source movements are currently being absorbed and adopted in a commercial context. © IFIP International Federation for Information Processing 2011

    Open source programmer's strategies to cope with ideological tensions2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we analyse how the increased use of open source software in companies affect employed programmers’ work, which we theorize as part of a larger secularisation process. We have studied both companies based on a more traditional proprietary model who are becoming open source oriented, and SMEs built around open source business concepts. This change results in a need for professional programmers to re-interpret open source within a new business oriented context. We study what kind of strategies programmers develop to cope with these contradictory systems and how it changes work roles and programmers’ approaches towards open source community work.

    Enhancing Achieved Experience from Project Participation as a Mechanism for Technology transfer within Developing Economy Context2014In: 21st EurOMA Conference: Operations Management in an Innovation Economy: 20th – 25th June 2014, Palermo, Italy, University of Palermo: International Annual EurOMA Conference, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we focus the enhancement of experience of the participants in development projects with the specific purpose to identify mechanisms to address the participant’s technical level. We used an interventionist approach exploring two mechanisms (the knowledge truck and ambassadors) for knowledge transfer. A fish-producing regional network in the rural region of Cauca, Colombia, is used as case. The study contributes to technology transfer literature by expanding our knowledge about barriers created by low technical knowledge among technology receivers. Further the study contributes to the bottom-up approach to technology transfer.

    Designriktlinjer för hur eHälsotjänster kan designas för att stödja personcentrerad vård2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Digitization has driven the development of new powerful information systems, with the potential to improve the efficiency in the healthcare system. The Internet has become a primary source for seeking healthcare related information and therefore the healthcare sector are facing a challenge with developing digital systems with person-centered focus. This study has aimed to answer the question “How can eHealth solutions be designed to maintain a person centeredness in the healthcare”. The study has used a design-oriented approach that resulted in four design guidelines that address patients needs for an overview, control and adaption of the content in their treatment. The design guidelines describe how eHealth can be designed for person-centered care and the guidelines represent the results that was identified in the study. The four guidelines have been applied in a prototype, and evaluated by different test persons. The study showed that the guidelines will contribute to increased knowledge about how eHealth can be designed for person-centered care and have given an answer for the research question.

    Tillit inom virtuella Open Source projekt: En tillitsbaserad utvärderingsprocess2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Genom Internets framgång i samband med mjukvaruutveckling kan vi nu återfinna virtuella utvecklingsprojekt som en del av fältet virtuella arbetssätt. Detta innefattas av mjukvara med Open Source licens så väl som kommersiellt licensierad mjukvara. Dessa virtuella Open Source projekt presenterar en intressant omgivning av samspel och samarbete där tidigare forskning har presenterat tillit som en relevant faktor. I denna studie kommer vi att utforska den roll som tillit har inom denna typ av virtuella arbetssätt med dess samspel och samarbete. Vi presenterar en slutsats som lyfter fram tillit som en utvärderingsprocess baserat på motivering till deltagande och uppfattning av sig själv och övriga deltagare i projekt. Denna utvärderingsprocess kan i sin tur leda till en effektivisering genom en koncentration av motiverade deltagare som funnit sin plats som ett gemensamt utvecklingteam.

    Designförslag för hur spelifiering kan designas i mobila hälsoapplikationer för att stödja inre motivation för fysisk aktivitet2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Fysisk aktivitet har visat sig förebygga allvarliga hälsorelaterade sjukdomar som till exempel diabetes och fetma, men trots den vetskapen blir vi allt mer stillasittande i vår vardag. För att upprätthålla en hälsosam livsstil är motivation en viktig aspekt att ta hänsyn till. För att skapa förståelse för de psykologiska behov som stödjer motivation används i den här studien makroteorin Self-determination theory (SDT). SDT konkretiserar motivation utifrån inre och yttre motivation, där yttre motivation traditionellt ansetts vara en svagare form av motivation. Allt fler använder sig av mobila hälsoapplikationer som till exempel RunKeeper för att stödja sin motivation för fysisk aktivitet. Mobila hälsoapplikationer använder sig ofta av spelifiering. Spelifiering innebär att spelelement implementeras i en annan kontext än den generella spelkontexten. Spelifiering som är implementerad i dagens mobila hälsoapplikationer stödjer främst yttre motivation för fysisk aktivitet, vilket kan orsaka att den inre motivationen minskar och att den fysiska aktiviteten upphör.

    Med tanke på att fysisk aktivitet är grundläggande för en hälsosam livsstil och att dagens mobila hälsoapplikationer främst använder sig av spelifiering som stödjer yttre motivation, ämnar studien att undersöka hur spelifiering kan designas för att stödja inre motivation för fysisk aktivitet. Studien utfördes med en designorienterad forskningsansats där spelelement implementerades i en prototyp. Prototypen användes för att utvärdera om spelelementen kunde stödja en känsla av inre motivation för fysisk aktivitet. Spelelementen analyserades med hjälp av SDT för att se hur de kunde stödja de tre psykologiska behoven. Utvärderingen av prototypen resulterade i tio designförslag för hur spelifiering kan designas för att stödja inre motivation för fysisk aktivitet.

    Riktlinjer för ökad tillgänglighet och användarupplevelse: En studie om att skapa riktlinjer för att förena tillgänglighet och användarupplevelse på responsiva webbplatser2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Digitaliseringen har skapat förutsättningar för människor att kommunicera och utföra

    uppgifter som tidigare gjordes analogt. För att alla människor ska kunna ta del av digital

    teknik ställs emellertid krav på att utvecklare och designers anpassar plattformar efter

    olika människors behov och önskemål. För att göra webben mer tillgänglig för personer

    med olika funktionsvariationer finns idag riktlinjer att följa. Dessa riktlinjer betraktas

    som verktyg för att mäta hur väl kod möter tillgänglighetsbehov, men tar inte hänsyn till

    en användares upplevelse. Genom en designorienterad ansats ämnar denna studie

    undersöka hur responsiva webbplatser kan designas för ökad tillgänglighet och

    användarupplevelse, såväl för personer med funktionsvariation som personer utan.

    Studien inleddes genom att riktlinjer identifierades i en förstudie. Dessa riktlinjer

    byggdes in i en prototyp, som sedan utvärderades. Studien resulterade i ett ramverk med

    sju designriktlinjer som förenar tillgänglighet och användarupplevelse, oberoende av

    enhet och skärmstorlek.

    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.

    The Role of Social Aspects in Digital Innovation Networks2012In: IRIS 35: Proceedings of the 35th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia: Designing the Interactive Society, Uppsala: Department of Informatics and Media, Uppsala University , 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    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

    Designutmaningar för fjärrdiagnostik av fordon2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste åren har e-underhåll väckt ökat intresse. Det är en underhållshantering där exempelvis ett fordon hanteras och övervakas över internet. Inom detta område finns det olika tekniker. En sådan teknik som vuxit fram under de senaste åren är “remote diagnostic system” eller fjärrdiagnostiska system. Fjärrdiagnostiska system kan bland annat på distans diagnostisera problem hos fordon. Det är även ett system som kan användas till att möjliggöra tjänster för fordonskunder. Dessa tjänster kan bestå av underhållstekniker som använder sin kunskap och ger rekommendationer angående ett fordons underhåll på distans.

    På grund av att det handlar om fordon är trafiksäkerheten viktig att ta hänsyn till, eftersom fel på ett fordon kan orsaka trafiksäkerhetsrisker. Därmed finns det olika utmaningar med trafiksäkerhet, exempelvis designutmaningar för hur tjänster kan utformas för att minska trafiksäkerhetsrisker. Vår litteraturstudie indikerade att designutmaningar för hur tjänster kan utformas inom fjärrdiagnostiska tjänster inte är tillräckligt väl utforskat. De fjärrdiagnostiska tjänsterna erbjuds och utvecklas i relationen mellan tjänstleverantörer och kunder. Det är även här dessa utmaningar uppstår. Därför undersökte vi vilka designutmaningar det kan finnas med fjärrdiagnostiska tjänster i denna relation. Vi genomförde en undersökning med en litteraturstudie och en intervjustudie. Resultatet från dessa studier ledde till en sammanställning av designutmaningar med fjärrdiagnostiska tjänster. Dessa utmaningar kan adresseras i relationen mellan tjänstleverantörer och kunder.

    Transferring intermediate technologies to rural enterprises in developing economies: a conceptual framework2017In: Prometheus, ISSN 0810-9028, E-ISSN 1470-1030, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 153-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper integrates the contributions from different branches of the technology transfer literature to identify enablers driving the transfer of intermediate or appropriate technologies to recipients in rural areas of developing economies. An in-depth analysis of the literature shows that many enablers identified in the literature focus on high technology transfers and are of limited relevance in the context of rural enterprises. Other important enablers in this specific setting are ignored or insufficiently considered. This paper proposes a framework comprising a specific set of enablers that facilitates technology transfer in rural enterprises in developing regional economies. © 2017 Deycy Janeth Sánchez Preciado, Björn Claes and Nicholas Theodorakopoulos.

    We've Got 99 Problems, but a Phone Ain't One: Mobile ICT and Academic Agility in Information Systems Research2014In: Proceedings of the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS) 2014, Tel Aviv, Israel, June 9-11, 2014, [S.l.]: AISeL , 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The year 2013 celebrated the 40th anniversary since Martin Cooper made the World's first mobile phone call setting off a slow start to a mobile revolution diffusing a range of mobile information and communication technologies (mobile ICT) within reach of just about anyone. This paper explores how the Information Systems (IS) field has reacted to this significant phenomenon as an example of a measure of our field's agility in quickly addressing environmental changes to the sociotechnical phenomena constituting our field and incorporating these changes into the mainstream academic discussions. The main assumption is that irrespective of what possible impact and influence the IS field may have on such emerging phenomena, it is an essential part of the field's justification for existence to provide academically grounded treatments of the most significant sociotechnical phenomena. Given the force, pace and generativity of contemporary ICT development, we assume an increasing need for the IS field to display agility in the way it considers emerging phenomena and either rejects or adopts them as significant for the field. This paper explores the IS field response to mobile ICT as an example of such need for academic agility. A bibliometric study of the basked of eight journals from 2000 to 2010 reveals that the IS field still needs to find ways of responding to developments in a more agile manner.

    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.

    Understanding ISD and Innovation through the Lens of Fragmentation2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information systems development (ISD) and innovation is a complex and challenging endeavor. In this paper we inquire into the process of ISD andinnovation to shed light on the ambiguous nature of such processes. This was done in an interpretive study of 10 governmental ISD projects where 14 interviews with key persons were conducted. In addition 11 interviews with senior IT consultants were conducted. Based on this study we propose an analytical lens to understand ISD and innovation. This lens is based on a metaphor grounded in the empirical material. This metaphor, fragmentation, mediates a deeper understanding of ISD and innovation regarding three aspects of complexity: knowledge, culture and discourse, and time and space.

    Platform Complexity: Lessons from the Music Industry2013In: Proceedings of the 46th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Science: 7–10 January 2013: Wailea, Maui, Hawaii / [ed] Ralph H. Sprague, Jr., Los Alamitos, CA: IEEE Computer Society, 2013, p. 4625-4634Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Platforms provide anchor-points for coordinating varied activities within an ecosystem. Understanding platform complexity and its effects is therefore a vital concern for academia and industry. The complexity defines the range of possible activities on the platform and the related aspects of control. This paper argues that abstract models of platforms used in current research remove some of the most important features underlying the inherent complexity of digital platforms. This insight is illustrated with a small study of platforms and their evolving complexity in the music industry. The exploration highlights salient phenomena that a more comprehensive theory of digital platforms should encompass. We posit that advancing theoretical perspective that better embrace the complexity of digital platforms is needed to fully capture the strategic and technological implications of emerging digital platforms.

    Anpassningar i affärssystem ur affärssystemsleverantörens perspektiv: En studie om hur systemleverantörer kan arbeta med kunders önskemål om anpassningar i standardiserade affärssystem2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Anpassningar i ett affärssystem är en komplex och problematisk process. Det är en utmaning för systemleverantörer att utveckla ett system som matchar organisationers behov och som inte kräver anpassning. Många kundorganisationer är i behov av att genomföra kundspecifika anpassningar i sitt system på grund av saknad funktionalitet. Systemleverantörer kan bemöta kunders behov på olika sätt där anpassning av kunders standardsystem kan genomföras. Är inte behovet av en anpassning genomförbar kan det krävas ändring av kundens affärsprocesser. Studien syftar till att bidra med kunskap om hur systemleverantörer arbetar med kunders önskemål om anpassningar i affärssystem. Studiens resultat beskriver hur systemleverantörer bemöter den problematik litteraturen redogör. Det presenteras även en specifik process för hur systemleverantörer kan arbeta med anpassningar.

    Digital Interventions in Self-Determined Exercise Motivation2013In: Book of Abstracts: ENYSSP 9th Workshop: 25-26th October 2013, Gothenburg, Sweden / [ed] Jonsson, Linus, 2013, p. 6-6Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research confirming the beneficial effects of physical activity and warns about the risks of sedentary behavior are abundant in contemporary literature. Yet, humans have probably never been as sedentary as we are now. Nothing is more than a click away, we do not even have to leave the couch – food is delivered to our doors and we are able to both work and socialize digitally. Despite a huge amount and variety of health information available, it is obvious that a lot of people do not lead as healthy lives as they could. Most people are generally aware that regular exercise habits are beneficial from a health perspective, but apparently that knowledge is not enough to incorporate the behaviour into lifestyle routines. Exercise research has for the past 30 years steadily shown that as much as 50 per cent of exercise initiators drop out within 3-6 months. Hence, not even good intentions don’t seem to be sufficient for people to be able to adhere to exercise behaviours.

    Exercise adherence therefore seems to be a considerable challenge, and since adherence is closely related to motivational aspects it is important to understand how to construct interventions promoting motivation and commitment. Traditional exercise interventions and promotion programs often lack sound theory foundations, hence also falling short in terms of structure and adequate evaluation systems.  Theory based work enable a deeper analysis of the underlying (psychological) processes, providing a more profound understanding of why some behavior changes are successful and some are not. It also generates structure and content to the intervention and enables identification of contributing factors and in which part of the process each factor is significant. These aspects are not only important for face to face programs but also in e-health, in terms of how we design tools and services, thereby placing high demands on our ability in applying theory to practice. Theory can also help us tailor personalized tools and services in our interventions, e.g. by identifying stage of change, facilitating motivational climate and autonomy support or managing barriers and drop-out.

    In this project modern research in exercise motivation and behaviour change guides the design in developing a digital intervention package for the health industry (Tappa Service AB and Health Profile Institute AB). The main aims are to enhance knowledge about the psychological processes behind exercise adherence and to develop and test a theory based digital tool to support durable behavior change.

    Course Structuring for Procedural Knowledge in Interaction Design Education2012In: IRIS 35: Proceedings of the 35th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia: Designing the Interactive Society, Uppsala: Department of Informatics and Media, Uppsala University , 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    Disseminating information within municipalities2005In: BIR 2005: Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Business Informatics Research / [ed] Per Backlund, Sven Carlsson, Eva Söderström, Skövde: Skövde University , 2005, p. 117-126Conference paper (Refereed)
    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.

    Emergent functions in Intranet information management2003In: Knowledge Management in Electronic Government / [ed] Wimmer, M.A., Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2003, p. 186-191Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations and municipalities implements advanced information technology, intranets, in order to enhance information management within the organization.. This technology is implemented with great reliance on the technology aspect. New functions emerge as a consequence of technology, functions not planned for. This paper puts focus one such function, the key persons responsible for publishing on intranets. A descriptive study shows that these persons do exist and describes some problems they appreciate.

    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

    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.

    Work-Integrated Learning: Visualizing Research as Professional Practice2018In: ICERI2018 Proceedings, The International Academy of Technology, Education and Development, 2018, p. 9608-9612Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In higher education work place practice through work placement or internships can be integrated as part of the education, especially when educating for professions such as teachers, medical professionals or law practitioners. The overall purpose of integrating work placement in the higher education is for students to experience and learn through engaging in practice with those already educated and experienced within the respective work domain. However, on masters level in higher education we seldom allow students the same opportunity related to the researcher profession. Students are commonly invited to do project or thesis work in research projects or relating to research work. Less common is to actually invite students to participate in research professional practice as a work placement. With work placement we here refer to the student being engaged during a period of time, in full working days, together with research professionals in their everyday practice. Learning to become a researcher through work experience has been described in a case study of a Ph.D. student by e.g. Eames (2003). The study showed that work placement can provide significant learning opportunities. The learning through research everyday work was different form being educated about research, and provided a view of what it means to practice in a research profession. We propose that the same opportunity for learning can be provided in masters education.

    In this paper we report from an initiative of integrating research work practice in an informatics master program. At Halmstad University we are starting a new international master program in Digital Service Innovation (starting September 2018). The master program educates students to design sustainable digital services through design research. With the aim to inspire students for future careers as researchers we offer the students the opportunity for 8 full weeks of “Research Placement” to visualize research as professional practice. The purpose is to provide hands-on experience of research to develop their awareness, skills and abilities to practice as design researchers. It also provides the opportunity to engage with research professionals and the stakeholders involved in the research. Moreover, the students are provided the opportunity to discuss their own career paths and the social and ethical implications of their work for society. The “Research Placement” can be in an academic institution, a research institute or a research and development department in an organization. The student examination assignment is a self-study and reflection of their “Research Placement” (see e.g. LaBoskey, 2004; Schön, 1983).
