    Digital Visions vs. Product Practices: Understanding Tensions in Incumbent Manufacturing Firms2014Ingår i: Proceedings of the Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences / [ed] Ralph H. Sprague, Jr., Los Alamitos, CA: IEEE Computer Society, 2014, s. 4516-4525Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Incumbent manufacturing firms face challenges when expanding their product focus with digital services. Such expansion creates tensions in organizations in the servitization process. While management visions and conceptualizes new service oriented businesses, the actual practice of implementing these service concepts is influenced by the product paradigmatic way of thinking in the organization. This dominant thinking creates tensions between business visions and business practice. We use the case of remote diagnostics services to provide insights into a manufacturing firm’s attempt to transform the dominant oriented business models into a new networked environment. We suggest that such acts that may or may not lead to transition are lingered by dominant logics related to the product focus. This indicates that firms are required to embed new logics into their existing practice in order to exploit the full potential of digital technology. © 2014 IEEE.

    A Research Framework to Study how Digital Service Innovation Transforms Value Networks2011Ingår i: Proceedings of IRIS 2011 / [ed] Leino, Timo, Turku, Finland: Turku Center for Computer Science , 2011, s. 29-40Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from preparations in an ongoing research study concerning how digital service innovation transforms value networks in manufacturing industries. The research study is in the context of the vehicle industry and concerns digital e-maintenance services based on remote diagnostics systems. This digital service innovation in particular is of great importance since manufacturing industries have great potential to expand their business and found new and extended boundaries and relationships with other stakeholder in a network they are attached to. Core challenges and opportunities for digital service innovation will lead us to the study of its influence on the business and innovation environment i.e. the value network. This paper presents a framework to study how digital service innovation transforms value networks based on literature reviews on value network, digital innovation and transformation of value networks.

    Combining Actor Network Theory and Genre Theory to Understand the Evolution of Digital Genres2008Ingår i: Proceedings of JAIS Theory Development Workshop, Amsterdam: Sprouts Alliance , 2008, s. 36-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we argue that a combination of Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and Genre Theory can constitute a theoretical framework for understanding how digital genres evolve. Genre theory states that genres evolve over time through reciprocal interaction between institutionalized practices and individual action; that they develop from actors’ responses to recurrent situations, and are shaped around characteristics as content, form, functionality and purpose. Genres emerge out of practice and at the same time they shape that practice. While genre theory can describe the characteristics of a genre, it cannot handle the process of how a genre is formed and what powers and forces are involved in this shaping process. In order to address this problem, several authors have incorporated structuration theory into genre analysis. However, structuration theory can only catch these constitutional processes of genre in a very broad manner. As a genre is evolving and stabilizing over time in interplay with different actors, it goes beyond what is possible to explain only by means of structuration theory. Instead, ANT could work as a tool to capture the process of how a genre takes form in negotiations with different stakeholders. In this paper we discuss how genre theory and ANT can be combined in a framework for analyzing emerging genres. We apply this theoretical framework on an e-newspaper project that embodies a new genre in the making. We will here show how evolving genre characteristics are developed, formed and stabilized in a negotiation and struggle between the involved actors when they translate their interests in ways that finally are resulting in a new genre.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we characterize the architecture of digital services that are enabled by embedded technology. Digitalization with embedded technology in physical products has become a common phenomenon. In spite of growing instance of such digitalization, little is known about the architectural characteristics of digital services enabled by embedded technology. Based on a research on vehicular remote diagnostics services, we characterize the architecture of such digital services. Following the framework on layered modular architecture continuum, our findings provide the following architectural characteristics: i) the architecture of the digital services spans along the layered modular architecture continuum, ii) the application program of the digital services is simultaneously de-coupled and partly coupled with the embedded devices, iii) there exist layers within layer of the digital services, iv) application program layer of the digital services is a closed innovation platform. © 2014 IEEE

    A Proposed Conceptual Framework For Identifying The Logic Of Digital Services2011Ingår i: Proceedings of the 15th Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems, PACIS 2011: Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia, from 7-11 July 2011, Brisbane: Association for Information Systems, 2011, artikel-id 47Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework for identifying the logic of digital services. Digital services are those services that we acquire after the digitalization of previously non-digital products or services. The objective of the framework is to apply it in identifying the logic of digital services which are the results of digital innovation in the context of remote diagnostic services in the vehicle industry. While building the framework, looking at the transformation of the non-digital to digital service and the involvement of physical products, i.e., digital devices in the transformation, it was found essential to identify the logic of the digital services on the basis of service logic and goods logic.For that purpose, we have reviewed the literature on service logic and goods logic as those logics discuss differently about the determination and meaning of value, role of customer, role of physical products, primary unit of exchange and some other aspects which are important to know in case of transforming a non-digital service to digital service. These logics and the concept of digital innovation are utilized in building the framework for identifying the logic of digital services.

    Hur gör man barn delaktiga i forsknings- och innovationsprocesser vid utveckling av digitala hälsoinnovationer2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att drabbas av en svår eller kronisk sjukdom under barndomen kan bidra till fysiska och psykosociala svårigheter senare i livet. Kamratstöd mellan individer som delar samma erfarenhet är en viktig främjande faktor till hälsa och välbefinnande och kan verka som en buffert mot stress och motgångar. Empirisk evidens som kan vägleda utveckling av digitala och interaktiva lösningar för kamratstöd mellan barn som drabbas av sjukdom i skolåldern är idag begränsad. Den process som presenteras här är fokuserad på att etablera metodologi för barns delaktighet i innovationsprocesser och att fånga barns bakomliggande beteenden och mål relaterat till kamratstödjande processer och hälsa. Intervjuer i fokusgrupper är en teknik som främjar barns deltagande och fångar barns perspektiv, förståelse och erfarenhet relaterat till deras hälsa. Friska barn (8-12 år) rekryterades från en lokal grundskola till fyra fokusgrupper med fyra barn i varje grupp. Barnen träffades två gånger med en intervall på 1-2 veckor. Förändringar gjordes mellan varje fokusgrupp för att anpassa strukturen på träffarna till en nivå motsvarande barnens erfarenheter, ålder och förmåga och för att fokusera diskussionerna på innovationsprocessen. En blandning av informativa och kreativa tekniker som öppna frågor, brainstorming, rita och måla och fotografering användes för att underlätta för barnen att uttrycka sig. Barnen framförde efter deltagandet att de tyckte om att delta och ville träffas igen i den här formen av grupp. Vår anpassade struktur på fokusgrupper används idag med barn med erfarenhet av svår sjukdom (cancer) för att ta fram typanvändare (Personas) i innovationsprocessen. Barnen rekryterades från Barnonkologiskt centra i Lund och Hallands sjukhus i Halmstad till fem fokusgrupper med tre barn i varje grupp. Barns delaktighet genom vår metod har förbättrat förutsättningarna att fånga barns mål och beteende och tillfört unikt material till den fortsatta designprocessen.

    Involving children in research and innovation processes in the development of digital health promotion intervention2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    Severe or chronic illness in childhood may contribute to physical and psychosocial problems later in life. Peer support among individuals who share the same experience is an important factor in promoting health and wellbeing and can act as a buffer against stress and adversities. Empirical evidence that could guide development of digital and interactive solutions for peer support between school-aged children affected by illness is limited.

    Purpose/Methods

    The process presented here is focused on establishing method- ology for children's participation in innovation processes and to capture the child's underlying behaviors and goals related to peer support processes and health. Focus group interview is a child-friendly method that promotes participation and access to children's perspectives, insights and experiences related to their health. Healthy children were recruited from a local elementary school. Focus groups were carried out in two sessions for each group with an interval of 1-2 weeks.

    Results

    Adjustments were made between each focus group to adapt the meeting structure to a level commensurate with the chil- dren's experience, age and abilities and to focus discussions on innovation incentives related to a digital peer support service. A mixture of informative and creative techniques such as open questions, brainstorming, drawing and painting and photog- raphy were used to assist the children to express themselves. The children were pleased to participate and wanted to meet again in this form of group.

    Conclusions

    Our adapted focus group structure are now being used with children with experience of severe illness (cancer) to develop Personas (fictitious characters of users) in the innovation pro- cess. Children's participation through our method has improved the chances of capturing children's goals and behavior, and added unique material for the continuing design process.

    Participatory innovation process for development of a digital peer support service for children with cancer2012Ingår i: SIOP Publication Abstracts, Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, 2012, s. 88-88Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Surviving cancer during childhood imposes a number of difficulties later in life. Peer support has been recognised as an important contributor to health and well-being but empirical evidence that could guide development of peer support programs for school aged children is scarce. The process presented here is focused on generic exploration of children’s needs and expectations related to peer support innovations to promote health and wellbeing of children with cancer. The purpose of this study is to establish a participatory innovation process that grasps the underlying behaviours and goals of children that will affect the design of a digital peer support service.

    Methods: Focus group interview is a child-friendly technique that promotes participation and access to children’s perspectives, insights and experiences related to their health. Healthy children 8–12 years of age were recruited from a local elementary school. Focus groups (n = 5 groups) were carried out in two sessions for each group (n = 4 children per group) with an interval of 1–2 weeks. Adjustments were made between each focus group to adapt the meeting structure to a level commensurate with the children’s experience, age and abilities and to focus discussions on innovation incentives related to a digital peer support service.

    Results: The adaptation process involved adjustments of the focus group structure to match children in the selected age group and to the aims of the innovation process. A mixture of informative and creative techniques (open questions, brainstorming, drawing, photography) assisted the children in talking and expressing themselves. The children were pleased to participate and wanted to meet again in this kind of study group. The adapted focus group sessions are now being used in the research and innovation process with children (8–12 yrs) with experience of cancer treatment.

    Conclusion: The final focus group structure capture children’s perspectives for the design of a digital peer support service.

    Genre Evolution - a Framework for Online Newspapers2003Ingår i: Proceedings of the 26th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia, 2003Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The online newspapers entered the Internet in the mid-nineties and since then it has become moreand more common to read the news online. There is a long tradition of designing newspapers inprint and today there is a demand from both academics and practitioners for more knowledgeabout how to design user friendly news sites. By studying the evolution of the online newspapergenre it would be possible to suggest layout implications for further development within thegenre. In this paper we suggest a framework, applying genre theory, for identifying the stages ofevolution for online newspapers. In view of a page layout analysis of the front pages of 85Swedish online newspapers our framework extends Shepherd and Watters (1998) cybergenremodel by adding a fifth leaf node and elucidating the distinctions between the leaf nodes. Ourempirical results show that the online newspaper genre in Sweden is a heterogeneous genre withonline newspapers in different stages of evolution. We have identified and categorized all contentelements on the front pages and related them to form and functionality elements and positionedthem according to a columns and sections grid. By drawing on best practice due to occurrence wehave suggested some initial layout implications for further development within the onlinenewspaper genre.

    Business models for m-services: Exploring the e-newspaper case from a consumer view2008Ingår i: Journal of Electronic Commerce in Organizations, ISSN 1539-2937, E-ISSN 1539-2929, Vol. 6, nr 2, s. 29-57Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the consumer view of an innovative m-service, that is, the e-newspaper, which is published for a mobile reading device equipped with an e-paper display. The research question of this article is: What are the implications of the consumer view of future m-service innovation on business models? In this article, we present empirical results from an online survey with 3,626 respondents representing the consumer view. The factor analysis revealed three aspects of consumer preferences, that is, Ubiquitous access, Prestige of news source and Local anchorage and advertising. These were then correlated with media behavior and e-newspaper preferences to indicate three possible market segments. We then discuss the implications that these consumer views could have on developing new business models, followed by a comparison to earlier research. Finally, we propose an integrated e-newspaper business model framework consisting of three models, ubiquitous, local, and prestige.

    The Challenge of Production in e-paper Publishing - from new consumption to new workflows2005Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    New publishing technologies, such as electronic paper (e-paper), bring new demands on newspaper publishers in the way they produce, publish and distribute their contents. E-paper as a new mobile publishing channel will not only be a technical challenge to the publishers, but will also change the consumption of news products. In this paper we take an outside-in perspective on the impact of this new channel, by taking a starting-point in possible new consumption. Based on three empirically founded scenarios of future consumption, we discuss what impact the e-paper publishing channel will have on distribution, systems of the media house, i.e. editorial, advertising and subscription, and on workflows.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we propose an approach for gathering data to generate user requirements for an artifact under development, in this case the e-newspaper based on an e-paper solution. Inspired by future workshops, scenario- and mock-up techniques we suggest the da Vinci approach. In addition to describing the approach we also report types of requirements possible to derive. We conclude by discussing experiences from applying the approach in the DigiNews project.

    Abstract [en]

    The introduction of the e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper based on e-paper technology brings new design challenges. In this paper we report from two parallel studies, an online questionnaire to newspaper readers and a questionnaire to newspaper designers. The aim was to find out what qualities to bring from print and online to the e-newspaper as initial input in the design process to design a usable and acceptable artifact. The results show both similarities and differences between the two respondent groups.

    Participatory Design of Future Every Day IT Artifacts: Engaging readers and publishers in designing the e-newspaper2005Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we describe a PD approach applied in a context of designing a future everyday IT artifact with limited resources. In the DigiNews project we aim at proposing design suggestions for the future e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper based on e-paper technology. The PD approach includes future workshop, scenario and mock-up techniques and focus groups. Based on eleven workshops with readers, newspaper staff and advertisers and three different focus groups involving readers, newspaper designers and interaction designers respectively, we illustrate the various types of results which could be derived from this approach.

    An Interorganizational Learning Approach to New Innovations: Exploring the e-newspaper Case2007Ingår i: Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Intellectual Capital, Knowledge Management and Organisational Learning / [ed] Dan Remenyi, Reading, U.K.: Academic Conferences Limited, 2007, s. 179-187Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we are addressing the following research question: How can an interorganizational learning approach influence an industry business strategy for a new innovation? When adopting new innovations organizations need to learn about the innovation’s gains and how it functions in the organizations line of business. This organizational learning process varies between “trial and error”, information seeking or a“wait and see” approach etc. When new innovations have the potential to cause paradigm shifts to whole industries interorganizational learning approaches are called for. We have explored the e-newspaper case, i.e. the introduction of e-paper technology in the newspaper industry. E-paper is a reflecting display technology with properties very close toprint on paper, with high contrast and readability. Thus, an e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper service published on an e-paper device, holds the potential of replacing the printed editionin the long run, thereby heavily reducing printing and distribution cost, making it an interesting prospect for the industry. In two research projects, DigiNews and UbiMedia, we have conducted interviews, future workshops, design focus group and steering committee meetings with newspaper representatives from nine Swedish newspaper companies and the Swedish Newspaper Publishers´ Association. The purpose of this paper is to analyze how an interorganizational learning approach between competing organizations to new innovations can play out using the four modes of knowledge conversion by Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995). The results indicates that by taking such an approach, Swedish newspaper organizations were able to reach an agreement on collaborating on distribution, possible standards and business models while still competing on content, thereby initiating a joint business strategy for the e-newspaper introduction. Summing up, the findings show that an interorganizational learning approach benefits from: (1) being organized at very early in the innovation process; and (2) being organized by a neutral facilitator and academics are suitable for that role.

    Genre characteristics - a front page analysis of 85 Swedish online newspapers2004Ingår i: Proceedings of the 37th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2004 / [ed] Ralph H Sprague, Los Alamitos, Calif.: IEEE Computer Society , 2004, s. 10-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The online newspapers entered the Internet in the mid-nineties and since then it has become more and more common to read news online. There is a long tradition of designing newspapers in print but today there is a demand from both academics and practitioners for more knowledge about how to design user friendly news sites. The challenge is to design the online newspaper, in this rapidly changing media, to be the same familiar, user friendly and universally accepted product as the printed newspaper. We have designed a study in three parts to address this challenge. The overall research question is: How can design for a media in rapid development be communicated within a genre? The purpose of the first part of the study, presented in this paper, is to build a framework for identifying genre characteristics and to describe the Swedish online newspaper genre of today. We have conducted a front page analysis on the total population of 85 Swedish online newspapers. We suggest a quadruple of the genre concepts and a grid to handle positioning when building the framework. To describe the Swedish online newspaper genre we have used the taxonomy for the evolution of cybergenres together with the so called broadsheet metaphor. Aiming at a more comprehensive understanding of the online newspaper genre we modified the model by adding the leaf node 'progressed'.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper adds to the overall understanding of new media adoption in general and the promotion of the e-newspaper in particular by empirically studying the preferences and demands of the potential users. The e-newspaper is a newspaper published on e-paper technology. The findings in this paper is based on the results from two studies, i.e. an online questionnaire with 3626 respondents and an evaluation in real life settings with 10 families over a two week period. Our initial hypothesis was that: users confronted with a vision of new technology and services are more positive to adopt than users with actual use experience of technology and services in an early stage of development with inherent technology problems. The research question of the paper is: How does use experience influence perceptions of preferences and demands for the e-newspaper? The findings showed that the hypothesis proved to be false, the test persons that have an actual use experience of the e-newspaper, despite the shortcomings in the device and service, were more positive to adopt than the respondents that have experienced concept movies and prototypes with more advanced functionality and interface.

    Abstract [en]

    The newspaper industry has certainly benefitted from technological innovations but at the same time received new competition, challenging their position in the media landscape, forcing them to explore new innovative ideas to find new profitable revenue streams. Based on 77 interviews with newspaper managers from Europe, US and Japan over a period of seven years (2007-2013), this paper addresses the research question: How are newspaper organizations managing digital innovation? This paper takes a theoretical perspective from literature on digital innovation, and use concepts of open and closed innovation to propose a model of management modes in digital innovation. The practical implications of this study will contribute to the ongoing debate within the challenged newspaper industry.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from an initial stage of a Swedish project concerning mobile IT support for tourism. From three workshops with actors within the tourism sector we identified barriers and challenges in designing IT support for all phases of the tourist life cycle. Thereafter we designed and evaluated a mobile tourism guide in real life setting with six different user groups. The research question of this paper is: What factors influence the design of mobile services to be used by multi-users in multiple contexts? The initial findings show that indeed there are several design challenges regarding e.g. a) the visibility of the content of the screen when multi-users are simultaneously using the service, b) the audibility of the speaker voice in the service when used in a surrounding with traffic noise, c) providing optional designs for different context, i.e. indoors/outdoors etc, and d) providing personalization options for different group sizes.

    The aim of this paper is to further explore new issues on advertising in ubiquitous information environments by theoretically and empirically discussing challenges of ubiquitous advertising. We have performed 15 interviews and 9 workshops with publishers and advertisers from the media industry. Our findings confirm previous research but also point out several additional challenging issues. We contribute to theory and practice by suggesting additional challenges for ubiquitous advertising regarding: 1) dynamic data exploitation, 2) real-time advertising adjustment (and channeling) to user behavior and preferences, 3) context adaptation and 4) user-advertiser relations.

    User Generated Content in News Media – a Comparison of Reader and Newspaper Views2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The newspaper industry is forced to find new business models for their digital channels due to decreasing revenues from subscription, single copy sales and advertising. One of many paths to explore is user generated content (UGC). UGC has been described as a democratizing “tool”, a new way for newspapers to connect to their audience, and also to attract advertisers in a new way. So far, research on UGC in a newspaper setting has either focused on the user or the newspaper perspective. By two different questionnaires, one to newspaper readers with 3663 respondents and one to newspaper staff with 204 respondents we attempt to make a comparison of reader and newspaper views on UGC in news media. The purpose of this paper is to describe perceptions and views of user generated content in the newspaper context, and to investigate if there is a gap between newspaper staff and reader perceptions. The findings show that readers in general value UGC to be important and attractive content, but that only a few are positive to contribute with UGC. Newspaper staff shows a tendency to think that users rate UGC content value higher than they actually do. Newspaper staff also rate that users are more likely to contribute with UGC than they actually are. There is also a difference between what newspaper staff think motivates readers to contribute and what the reader survey shows. This paper contributes to the understanding of UGC and also provides valuable insights to newspaper firms considering exploring UGC.

    Forming a Value Network - Analyzing the Negotiations Between Actors in the E-Newspaper Case2009Ingår i: Proceedings of the 42nd Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, HICSS / [ed] Ralph H Sprague, Los Alamitos, Calif.: IEEE Computer Society, 2009, s. 1-10Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We have studied a two-year project aiming at exploring the potentials of the e-newspaper, i.e. a news service published with e-paper technology. Different actors have interests in this process, e.g. newspaper publishers, device producers, readers and advertisers. These actors are forming value networks by negotiations of interests and positions. The contribution of the paper is twofold: firstly we show how the value network created around e-newspaper is dependent on the convergence of different actors and their interests; secondly our theoretical contribution is to show how Actor Network Theory (ANT) can be used in combination with other theories - in this case genre theory - to analyze emergent value networks. ANT captures the general process of how the value network takes form, while genre theory captures the domain specific context of e-newspapers, and how this structures negotiations between different stakeholders who want to form the e-newspaper genre.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper address advertising in ubiquitous media environments by empirically discussing challenges suggested in previous research. We have performed 15 interviews, 4 workshops and 3 brainstorming sessions with publishers and advertisiers. Our findings agree with previous research but also point out several additional challeging issues. We conclude by suggesting that the publishers are well suited to take on the role as pervasive service providers and identify four specific

    challenges related to that role: 1) How to develop models to produce and make use of consumer information dynamically over time in a ubiquitous media environment?; 2) How to adjust advertising to consumer preferences, i.e. advertising on consumer terms?; 3) In what ways can advertising be integrated with services/content adjusted to context? and 4) How to create an arena for building relations between consumers and advertisers as well as between advertisers?

    Authentic and Concurrent Evaluation: Refining an Evaluation Approach in Design Science Research2011Ingår i: PACIS 2011 PROCEEDINGS / [ed] Peter B. Seddon & Shirley Gregor, Brisbane: Queensland University of Technology , 2011, s. Paper 82-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the need for more detailed accounts for evaluation in design science research literature. By revisiting a design project regarding the future e-newspaper we give detailed descriptions of its authentic and concurrent evaluation approach by illustrating the what, why and how of all evaluation activities throughout the whole project. The project produced seven different design artifacts that were evaluated. The utility and theoretical outcomes of the evaluation activities clearly influenced design decisions regarding newspaper design, user value and business model design as well as decisions on strategic levels. We emphasize a holistic and concurrent approach to evaluation compared to the general design science research thinking and argue that reflecting on how to seek authenticity is important. By authenticity we refer to the notion of how closely an evaluation captures the context and actual use of an artifact. With the holistic approach we encourage evaluation to be inclusive of different aspects and relationships between stakeholder groups in the evaluation activities. Further we think that concurrency is not narrowed to evaluation but also regards theorizing. While it makes sense for planning to distinguish between phases and stages of evaluation and theorizing, in practice they are intrinsically interlinked and concurrent.

    Designing Ubiquitous Media Services: Exploring the Two-Sided Market of Newspapers2016Ingår i: Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, ISSN 0718-1876, E-ISSN 0718-1876, Vol. 11, nr 3, s. 1-19Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The two-sided market of newspapers with its two customer groups, readers and advertisers, is changing due to digitalization. This former stable and profitable market has lately suffered from both decreasing subscription and advertiser revenue. In this paper we use the term ubiquitous media environments to represent the vision of future media environments enabling device independent mass-scale distribution of ubiquitous media services in integrated infrastructures. We build upon a two-year action research project where researchers worked together with the Swedish newspaper industry to envision future ubiquitous media services and explore the following research question: how can ubiquitous media services be designed to leverage and balance value in a two-sided market? Five examples of ubiquitous media services were developed in collaboration and thereafter evaluated. These services were then illustrated in movie clips to trigger discussions on how ubiquitous media services can be designed. Drawing on the value aspects of ubiquitous media services from an advertiser and reader point-of-view and the platform owner role of the newspapers in a future ubiquitous media environments, we describe and discuss how ubiquitous media services can be designed to leverage value for advertisers and readers, and how newspaper organizations can strategize ubiquitous media environments. © 2016 Universidad de Talca - Chile

    From Print to Web to e-paper - the challenge of designing the e-newspaper2004Konferensbidrag (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Newspapers have a long tradition and centuries of experience behind today’s newspaper design. Pages, headlines, columns and fonts have been tuned in form and function to optimize content and context. They are all part of a user friendly and universally accepted product. Newspapers have two internationally recognizable formats, i.e. broadsheet or tabloid, familiar to readers all over the world. The first online newspapers appeared ten years ago in 1994, and since then research has been done to gain knowledge about how to design user friendly news sites. Today, we are facing the introduction of yet another media channel, the e-newspaper, which once again will require new design solutions for the graphical user interface (GUI).

    E-paper is a wide and not defined term. For this paper we limit our research to e-newspaper that will emerge on a new breed of e-Reader terminals based on E-Ink technology. These future terminals will most likely be in the size of 5-8” in size and have been used as a base for his paper.

    The change in the dimensions of printed broadsheet or tabloid newspapers into a smaller, digital e-paper format will radically change the user experience. Presumably, this e-newspaper solution will not replace the web but rather aim to replace the printed newspaper in the future. When designing for e- newspaper, the best from both worlds, i.e. print and web, should be considered in combination with the unique advantages of this new media.

    Traditional newspapers hold the advantages of portability and readability while the online newspapers enable continuous updates and user interaction. The e-newspaper offers faster and cheaper distribution than the traditional newspaper but not the same interactivity that the web offers. Further, the production and distribution of the e-newspaper is more environmentally friendly.

    In this paper we a) give an overview of the design possibilities and constraints of the e-paper technology, b) discuss design solutions from print and web that could be transferred to the e-paper media and c) present early empirical results from different studies. One study reports from experiences of prototyping e-newspaper interfaces. Another study presents results from interviews with designers at ten different newspapers, representing the publisher perspective.

    Based on the above we propose a set of future scenarios for e-newspaper design. These scenarios will be used as basis for future research and prototype development in the research community as well as within the newspaper industry.

    Living Labs: Dilemmas of an Active Researcher2009Ingår i: eChallenges e-2009 Conference Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham & Miriam Cunningham, Dublin: International Information Management Corporation Limited, 2009Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses Living Labs from a researcher view based on experiences from Halmstad Living Lab with about 100 activities with different stakeholders. We define Living Labs as a milieu based on continuity, in which methods and techniques are used to empower users and to involve all relevant stakeholders, in open innovation processes in realistic settings. The relevant stakeholders are; researchers, companies, users, public partners and stakeholders of emerging technology. We argue for the relevance of the researcher stakeholder and discuss the dilemmas of an active researcher regarding role, process, outcome and relations. We conclude by suggesting a model indicating tensions in a Living Lab from a researcher view, i.e. neutrality vs. taking sides; research process vs. innovation process; research contribution vs. market value; and critical reflections vs. socialization.

    Audience view on new technology for media consumption2006Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we experiment with different audience groups to study how they differ with respect to the adoption of new media products/services. We expand the existing framework of early adopters, which is heavily directed towards the technological aspects of a product, by including users that are more interested in the social and content-related aspects of products/services. We are interested in seeing whether these audience groups differ in terms of preferences for new media products in order to shed light on possible strategies for the introduction of the e-newspaper. The study was done in a larger research project, DigiNews, on the introduction of e-newspapers. The paper is built on the results from an online survey on attitudes and preferences towards new technology, media in general and a planned e-newspaper. Data was collected from in total 2976 respondents at the web sites of three Swedish newspapers Aftonbladet, Göteborgs-Posten, and Sundsvalls Tidning.

    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates how audience groups differ with respect to the adoption of new media services. The authors expand the existing framework of early adopters, which is heavily directed towards the technological aspects of a product, by including users that are more interested in the social and content-related aspects of media services. The objective is to identify and explore important audience groups that can be used as initial target groups for the introduction of the e-newspaper (a newspaper that is published on e-paper technology). Data was collected from 2976 respondents through the web sites of three Swedish newspapers. © 2007 Journal of Media Business Studies.

    Designing Online Peer Support for Children with Cancer: Research Considerations and Ethical Implications2012Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Social support is essential for a person's capacity to live with a disease. For children, who do not have the same ability as adults to understand and deal with their disease, contact with other children with similar experiences can help them understand their own situation. In this paper we present an ongoing research project with a participatory approach. The challenge is to design online peer support (OPS) for children who have been diagnosed with cancer. The aim of this paper is to identify and shed light on ethical implications and related research considerations when designing a research approach for this sensitive context. Our literature review indicates that there is an apparent lack of research on OPS for supporting children with cancer. It also shows that there is knowledge on considerations to make when designing with children. However, the children in this category are suffering from physical and psychological consequences of their illness. Finally we discuss relevant ethical considerations, of which we highlight sensitivity and respect as most important and comprehensive.

    Ethics in Health Promoting PD: Designing Digital Peer Support with Children Cured from Cancer2014Ingår i: 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, s. 91-100Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Methods and Techniques for User Contribution: Challenges from a Living Lab Perspective2009Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Master Curriculum in Digital Service Innovation2018Ingår i: American Conference on Information Systems 2018, 2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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 Students2014Ingår i: 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, s. 3373-3378Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Understanding ISD and Innovation through the Lens of Fragmentation2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Digital Innovation in the Value Networks of Newspapers2009Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    After decades of digital developments, we are now entering a truly digital era. Digital information and communication technology has become a naturally embedded part ofthe designed environment we live in. Most parts of life are today pervaded by digital products and services. Evidence of such immersion can be noted in, for instance, media consumption. This development is gradually shaping and cultivating a media environment that is ubiquitous. Such ubiquity is manifested in media’s constant presence and thechanges in media consumption in the purview of digital innovation. Indeed, digital innovation is not only a shift in technology. It alters existing value networks and calls forrethinking existing value perceptions. While this disruptive change driven by digitizationcan be found in many industries, this thesis focuses on its impact on value networks in thenewspaper industry.The digitization of newspapers started with the introduction of the internet in the 90´sand soon emerged into new media innovations. While these new media innovations have not replaced existing media, they have been disruptive to newspaper value networks. Recently, the emergence of yet another digital innovation is specifically interesting whenstudying changes to value networks of the newspaper industry: the e-paper. This innovation (a screen technology very close to print on paper) exhibits inherent valuesthat make future replacement of print on paper a possibility. It is therefore regarded as avery promising technology in the newspaper industry. This thesis can be positioned at the intersection of the friction between forces to embarkon a new media trajectory and forces to hang on to the established structures andcontrol. The research question addressed in this thesis is: How are value networks of newspapers influenced by digital innovation? Addressing the research question, a multimethod approach was adopted to gain a broad understanding of how digital innovationinfluences value networks of newspapers. Drawing on digital innovation literature, the thesis presents a theoretical perspective with which to understand how digital innovation influences value networks. This perspective is instantiated as a model of value network configuration. The model emphasizes the multi-layered, dynamic, dialectic, and diametrical character of value networks in digital innovation. The model is offered as abasis and analytical tool to further explore value networks in digital innovation. This tool is useful for newspaper stakeholders when entering the digital era.

    Mobile service value: presenting the newspaper publisher view on how to attract users and advertisers2006Ingår i: Proceedings of the 29th IRIS, 2006, s. 19-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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 perceptions2007Ingår i: Proceedings of 6th Annual Global Mobility Roundtable, 2007, s. 19-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    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.
