My main research area concerns the phenomenon of cloudsourcing and why this strategically important action goes bad on some organisations but not on others. My research adds to previous work where cloudsourcing has been seen as a static concept by demonstrating the multiple, coexisting and complementary roles that cloudsourcing may play. It explains the problematic issues that companies want to secure themselves from that arise with cloudsourcing. Using multiple comparative case studies I look at mechanisms around cloudsouring such as the providers of the cloudsystem, the customers using it, conflicts and issues that arise in this stakeholder relationship, but also success and benefits in order to decribe, explain and explore what cloudsourcing success means and how it can be achieved.



I am a course coordinator and lecturer at Lund University, teaching on a regular basis in the field of IT and Strategic Management on graduate level.

The graduate course "Strategic Management and Information Systems" that I run focuses on areas of IT-strategies, Cloud-strategies, Strategic Management, Business Models, flexibility and competitiveness. The contents of this course is highly relevant for future IT-leaders and decision makers. The course merges IT and Business into a ready to apply format for IT-specialists. The Strategic theories are used hands on actual cases.

I have extensive teaching experience both on graduate and undergraduate level and have been responsible for and taught courses on undergraduate level in "IT and Globalisation", as well as developed and taught online distance course in "IT, People and Organisations".

In addition, I have  supervised and examined numerous bachelor theses.
