    Developing M-Services: Lessons Learned From the Developers Perspective.2007Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 20, nr 38, s. 605-620Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years the Swedish Police Force (SPF) have encountered greater demands on availability and 24/7 services when dealing with errands that are regarded as low priority compared to regular police work, e.g. collecting tips from the public. One attempt to meet these increasing demands was the development of a mobile communications platform that allowed the public to communicate easily with the SPF using their own mobile phones by sending SMS and MMS. The focus of this paper is on the early phases of development of this m-service, in particular, on the specific technical issues such as interoperability and standards used by the actors on the scene affecting the development of mobile information systems. The learning experiences are as follows: First, mobile communication platforms have a large potential for contributing to the field of emergency management information systems since they can be based on open and nationally accepted standards. Second, global and national standards for sending multimedia messages are not always truly standardized. Operators and mobile phone manufacturers make minor alterations and interpretations of the standard and thereby some of the benefits found in standards disappear. Third, when developing mobile information systems we suggest and recommend that the analysis phase should be enhanced compared to traditional system development, and it should address the interoperability between mobile phones on one hand and operators on the other hand.

    Disregarding history: Contemporary IS contexts and participatory design2014Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 34, nr 1, s. 1319-1332, artikel-id 68Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    User participation has long been seen as a core topic of study within the IS field, yet its relevance to contemporary development environments and contexts has recently been brought into question. The aim of this article is to investigate the extent to which this rich history and experience is used to inform contemporary practices. We provide a survey that evaluates the degree to which PD (participatory design) is currently represented in the IS literature, the results of which reveal a low representation. Based on these findings, a number of propositions are offered. © 2014 by the Association for Information Systems.

    Conceptualizing Workarounds: Meanings and Manifestations in Information Systems Research2019Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 45, s. 340-363Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We reviewed papers in core IS outlets that defined the term workaround or presented an example of a workaround. In the analysis, we used Ogden and Richard's triangle of reference as a theoretical framework to analyze the relationship between 1) the term workaround; 2) theories, definitions, and use of the term; and 3) their empirical basis and empirical workaround behavior that the papers describe. First, we summarize the existing theoretical insights regarding workarounds and investigate their validity. Second, we show that studies have defined and used the term workaround differently to the extent that they have not always applied it to the same empirical phenomena, which raises questions about some theoretical insights' validity. Third, we suggest a definition for workarounds that we inductively derived from empirical accounts of workaround behavior and, therefore, that adequately describes how researchers commonly use the term and makes it possible to distinguish workarounds from other similar phenomena.

    The Generation of Qualitative Data in Information Systems Research: The Diversity of Empirical Research Methods2019Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 44, s. 572-599Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the concept of data collection in information systems qualitative research. In this text, I replace the term "data collection" with "data generation" to emphasize that the researcher arranges situations that produce rich and meaningful data for further analysis. Data generation comprises activities such as searching for, focusing on, noting, selecting, extracting, and capturing data. This paper analyzes and compares a repertoire of empirical research methods for generating qualitative data. It describes and visualizes (through a common data-generation template) 12 research methods: interviewing, questionnaire study, document study, artifact study, observation study, participant observation, intervention study, practice-based design study, lab-based design study, focus group study, test study, and self-reporting. I compare these data-generation methods according to 1) the researcher's role in data generation, 2) data generation's influence on everyday life reality, 3) each data-generation method's relationship to everyday life reality, 4) what parts/mediators of everyday life reality each data-generation method addresses, 5) the expected value of generated data and 6) possible shortcomings in generated data. As a basis for investigating data generation, I ontologically clarify (based on a practice-theoretical perspective) the empirical landscape of information systems (the kinds of phenomena and sources of data that exist). A concluding discussion contains 1) analyses concerning relationships between data-generation methods and compound research methods/strategies such as case study research, action research, and design science research and 2) the role of interpretation in data generation versus data analysis.

    Introducing e-Gov: history, definitions, and issues2005Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 15, s. 39-Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The e-Gov field (also called Electronic Government, Digital Government, Electronic Governance, and similar names) emerged in the late 1990´s. Since then it spurred several scientific conferences and journals. Because the field grew considerably in size, both its contents and position with respect to other research fields and disciplines need to be explained and discussed. What is e-Gov? What is e-Gov research? What does it mean for the field of Information Systems? This paper briefly sketches the short e-Gov history and current status, and discusses the content of the field as it appears in current research. We conclude with a discussion of e-Gov as a research field of interest both as a new application area for IS theories and methods and as a source of new insight.

    Understanding the behavior of workshop facilitators in systems analysis and design projects: Developing theory from process modeling projects2015Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 36, s. 421-447, artikel-id 22Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizational and technological systems analysis and design practices such as process modeling have received much attention in recent years. However, while knowledge about related artifacts such as models, tools, or grammars has substantially matured, little is known about the actual tasks and interaction activities that are conducted as part of analysis and design acts. In particular, key role of the facilitator has not been researched extensively to date. In this paper, we propose a new conceptual framework that can be used to examine facilitation behaviors in process modeling projects. The framework distinguishes four behavioral styles in facilitation (the driving engineer, the driving artist, the catalyzing engineer, and the catalyzing artist) that a facilitator can adopt. To distinguish between the four styles, we provide a set of ten behavioral anchors that underpin facilitation behaviors. We also report on a preliminary empirical exploration of our framework through interviews with experienced analysts in six modeling cases. Our research provides a conceptual foundation for an emerging theory for describing and explaining different behaviors associated with process modeling facilitation, provides first preliminary empirical results about facilitation in modeling projects, and provides a fertile basis for examining facilitation in other conceptual modeling activities.

    Dropping Your Tools: Exploring When and How Theories Can Serve as Blinders in IS Research2011Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 282-294Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The debate between protagonists of different theoretical approaches continues in the IS field, with little prospect of resolution. The debate is typically characterized by tendentious arguments as advocates of each approach offer a one-sided condemnation of other approaches. Debate on the qualities of theoretical explanations of technological change is hampered by the shadow of supremacist strategies that is cast over the debate, illustrating the manner in which IS researchers are polarized into opposing camps, each viewing the other as inferior. Ironically further polarization is occurring in the ways that various groups of IS scholars are simultaneously calling for order, disciplin and clearer notions of the ―core of the discipline‖ while other scholars call for greater research diversity. In order to overcome this polarization we advocate a strategy recommended by Weick [1996]: Drop your tools—hold your concepts lightly and update them frequently. Three reasons for dropping our theoretical tools are put forward—the focus on improving practice, the focus on building cumulative tradition in the mother discipline, and the focus on building cumulative tradition in one‘s own discipline—suggesting researchers must consider the ―fit‖ between problem domain, theory and the relationship of the chosen theory to the method of inquiry.

    User Acceptance of Virtual Learning Environments: A Case Study from Three Northern European Universities2009Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 25, nr 1, s. 465-486Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Virtual learning environments have in recent years become an important tool in higher education, in distance learning as well as on campus. This study analyzes factors influencing acceptance of virtual learning environments among academic staff and students in blended learning environments. Two research questions guided the study: (1) How do organizational and individual factors influence the acceptance of virtual learning environments among academic staff and students? (2) What are the implications for practice in order to create good prerequisites for acceptance of virtual learning environments? The study was performed as a comparative, explanatory case study at three universities providing master education of public health in Sweden, Norway and Lithuania. The findings of the case study showed that the contextual factor of culture was powerful in influencing acceptance of virtual learning environments, positively as well as negatively. High degrees of performance expectancy, results demonstrability and social influence affected acceptance of virtual learning environments positively. The degree of social influence was hypothesized to be transferred by the contextual factor of culture. The organizational culture of universities, expressed as shared values of what is good quality teaching and learning, were found to partly oppose values inherent in the virtual learning environment. Implications for practice are put forward, emphasizing culture as an important factor to consider in the implementation of virtual learning environments.

    Escaping the computer-forensics certification maze: a survey of professional certifications2008Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 23, s. 547-574Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    With the proliferation of computer crime, the demand for computer-forensics experts continues to increase. Yet with so many computer-forensics certifications currently available, it is not an easy task for those outside the discipline to understand the differences among the various certifications. The objective of this paper is to provide a comprehensive analysis of all the existing computer-forensics certifications for the benefits of non-computer- forensics practitioners. Twenty-six computer-forensics certifications offered by 17 different associations are described and compared based on criteria such as certification requirements and knowledge coverage. The paper is useful to three groups of readers: (1) individuals who want to join the computer-forensics profession; (2) academics who are responsible for curriculum development in computer forensics; and (3) top-level managers who want to recruit computer-forensics professionals.

    A research review on building information modelling in construction - an area ripe for IS research2012Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 31, s. 206-229, artikel-id 10Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a review of the research on Building Information Modeling (BIM) in construction, with the aim of identifying areas in this domain where IS research can contribute. The concept of BIM comprises an infrastructure of IT tools supporting collaborative and integrated design, assembly, and operation of buildings. This integrated construction approach, with all stakeholders editing or retrieving information from commonly shared models, requires major changes to well-established processes, organizational roles, contractual practices, and collaborative arrangements in the construction industry. Through a review of 264 research articles on BIM, we found that this research spans a wide area of technological and organizational topics, of which many have a clear resonance to focal areas in IS research. Our analysis shows that IS, to some extent, serves as a reference discipline and that theories used in IS research are also informing contemporary BIM research. The following areas in need of further IS research were identified: studies on the relationship between BIM’s functional affordance and human agency, adoption and use of BIM for inter-organizational collaboration, the influence of organizational culture on BIM practices, the capabilities of BIM for transforming industry practice, and identifying the business value of BIM. Considering that a well-established knowledge base in IS research can be drawn upon for studying these issues, combined with the exciting potential of BIM for transforming a major industry such as building construction, we conclude that BIM is an area ripe for IS research.

    Government Value Paradigms: Bureaucracy, New Public Management and eGovernment2010Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 27Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    There are different interpretations of which core values eGovernment build on and promote. Some scholars see eGovernment as a direct follower to New Public Management (NPM), and as such supporting and promoting values and principles from the business sector. Others see eGovernment as a promoter of bureaucratic values supporting and promoting the values of traditional weberian ideal bureaucracy. The main issue in this paper is management strategy for public administration. Three examples of such management strategies are examined and compared: traditional bureaucracy, New Public Management and eGovernment. When investigating these strategies it is necessary to distinguish between strategy as idea and strategy in action. Core values of the management strategies are reconstructed and used as a lens through which a case study of eGovernment is analyzed. The implemented eGovernment-solution comprise values from both NPM and bureaucracy. Neither bureaucracy nor NPM alone supply the core values for eGovernment as a practical management strategy. The paper concludes with a dialectical structure where Bureaucracy is the thesis, NPM the anti-thesis and eGovernment the practical synthesis.

    Nepal Wireless Networking Project: Building infrastructure in the mountains from ground up2014Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 34, artikel-id 11Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching cases can be instrumental in developing skills of critical analysis, problem solving and strategic thinking in students, especially in specific contexts such as Information Systems (IS). While cases are widely used in the curricula of graduate and undergraduate programs in developed countries, there is a lack of teaching cases set in developing countries, particularly in the area of information and communication technology for development (ICT4D). In this paper, we address this gap by telling the story of the Nepal Wireless Networking Project (NWNP) and its effort to connect villages in remote areas of Nepal to the outside world. Despite lack of access to proper equipment, lack of technical competence and the difficult terrain in the Himalayan mountains, Mahabir Pun, the initiator of NWNP, succeeded in bringing Internet access to these villages, contributing to improvements in education, health services and income generating activities. The case describes the development of NWNP from inception until today, the stakeholders involved, services provided, current challenges and ideas for future improvements. Furthermore the case illustrates the importance of the champion, the process of committing important stakeholders, the importance of contextual understanding, and the challenges while scaling up from pilot projects to wider implementations in the context of developing countries.

    Pragmatizing the normative artifact: design science research in scandinavia and beyond2018Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 43, nr 1, s. 68-77, artikel-id 4Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this panel report, we analyze the discussion that unfolded during the “Design Science Research: A Scandinavian Approach?” panel held at the third Scandinavian Conference on Information Systems in Sigtuna, Sweden, in August, 2012. The second author of this paper chaired the panel, which also included Tone Bratteteig, Shirley Gregor, Ola Henfridsson, Alan Hevner, Jan Pries-Heje, and Tuure Tuunanen as panelists. Three themes that highlight how the design of artifacts contributes to knowledge production emerged during the panel. The first theme addresses our responsibility, as a research community, to come up not only with descriptions of the world but also to try to change things into preferable states.

    Pragmatizing the normative artifact: Design science research in Scandinavia and beyond2018Ingår i: Communications of the Association for Information Systems, ISSN 1529-3181, E-ISSN 1529-3181, Vol. 43, s. 68-77Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this panel report, we analyze the discussion that unfolded during the “Design Science Research: A Scandinavian Approach?” panel held at the third Scandinavian Conference on Information Systems in Sigtuna, Sweden, in August, 2012. The second author of this paper chaired the panel, which also included Tone Bratteteig, Shirley Gregor, Ola Henfridsson, Alan Hevner, Jan Pries-Heje, and Tuure Tuunanen as panelists. Three themes that highlight how the design of artifacts contributes to knowledge production emerged during the panel. The first theme addresses our responsibility, as a research community, to come up not only with descriptions of the world but also to try to change things into preferable states. The second theme emphasizes that knowledge production also happens through the design of artifacts. The third theme identifies an apparent pragmatic turn in our discipline.
