Abstract [en]

This thesis sets out to investigate and understand behaviours and interactions between individuals while using a large touch screen to plan a holiday trip. By using this approach, the tool digital visual planning by Yolean is indirectly examined. The tool is examined by looking at how it is used and the environment it is used in. The research question in this research paper is “How is interaction between individuals affected by using large touch screens with a digital visual planning tool in a meeting?”. Itis answered by using a mixed method approach containing grounded theory and design research methodology applied to an observation study. The results suggest that a group working for the same goal tend to get a leader without appointing them directly. This leader is also usually the person who stands in front of the rest and dictates what goes where. If problems arise, a shift in leadership occurs naturally and fluently. The digital visual planning tool helped the participants to easier express themselves and to motivate decisions. By using their whole body, they could more easily communicate.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats ämnar undersöka beteenden och interaktioner mellan individer i ett mötessammanhang användandes av ett digitalt visualiserings verktyg. Verktyget används på en stor pekskärm och är skapat av Yolean. Verktyget undersöks indirekt genom att utgå från hur verktyget används och miljön runt om verktyget. Forskningsfrågan som besvaras i uppsatsen lyder: ” Hur påverkas interaktion mellan individer genom att använda stora pekskärmar med ett digitalt visuellt planeringsverktyg i ett möte?”. Frågan besvaras genom en observationsstudie som utgår från blandade metodiker från både”grounded theory” (teoribildning genom empiri) samt designforskning. Resultatet tyder på att en grupp som arbetar tillsammans för att uppnå samma mål tenderar att få en ledare utan att specifikt tilldela denne rollen. Uppstår problem tenderar ett skifte av ledarskap ske. Skiftet sker naturligt och då utan verbala tilldelningar. Det visuella planeringsverktyget hjälpte deltagarna att uttrycka sina tankar och funderingar. Deltagarna kunde kommunicera med hela kroppen och att peka på specifika objekt som de ville diskutera. Genom denna frihet kunde de mer noggrant kommunicera sina förslag och tankar till resten av gruppen.
