Research

My research interest focusses on two major areas in the field of Information Systems, and these areas are sourcing of IT as well as Enterprise Systems. In the context of Enterprise System I have done and do research related to diffusion and adoption as well as implementation and effects from implemented systems. In the sourcing area I then focus on decision-making for selecting as specific delivery model for Information Systems. At the moment the focus is on the concept of multi-sourcing which could be seen as a result of organizations attempt to place more and more information systems in what is called cloud computing.

4. Briefly describe development work in education – renewal of curriculum and/or pedagogical development:

During 2018 I have maintained and further developed the course “IS sourcing strategies for business development” which was delivered for the first time 2016. Compared to last year, the main change is that the case teaching part has been further developed. During 2018 I have also re-developed the research method course in the master programme.

6. Programme responsibility (name of programme)

 

 

7. Additional work in education (e.g. planning, implementation, and pedagogical leadership)

 

 

 

8. Briefly describe your work with IT-supported teaching and learning

I use Live@Lund for all communication that concerns more than one student, upload all course material at Live@Lund and let the students upload assignments there.

In the research method course we use SPSS, SmartPLS and Nvivo for doing analysis of empirical data. I also use EasyChair for submission of course papers and the review process in which students review each others submissions and thereby go through a normal academic review process. I also introduce EndNote and promote students to use that for referencing.

 

In the course – IS sourcing strategies for business development – I used EasyChair for organizing the final seminar with student papers and reviews on these. I also promotes EndNote for dealing with references.

 

9. Production of cases, publications on teaching and learning, teaching materials and textbooks

 

I have further developed the “Municipality case” that I use in the course IS sourcing strategies for business development.
