Software product innovation in large organizations is fundamentally challenging because of restrained freedom and flexibility to conduct experiments. As a response, large agile companies form internal startups to initiate employ-driven innovation, inspired by Lean startup. This case study investigates how communities of practice support five intern...

Project
This project aims to explore opportunities and realize key innovations to create a new, world-leading platform for a Digital Class for the maritime industry. This will be done in close cooperation with ship owners/managers and equipment manufacturers. With access to available data, we aim to both digitally enable today's maritime inspection and provide ship operators with more insight about the technical status of the individual ship, of its fleet of ships, and the equipment onboard.
Project
We will develop a third-generation large-scale software innovation method for autonomous teams that enables many radical experiments across teams, and will develop 1. Decision tools and processes to prioritize which ideas we should work on. 2. Practices and methodology for coordinating teams in complex networks. 3. Techniques and models to support extremely high individual autonomy.
Project
The objective of A-Team is to develop new principles and guidelines for cultivating and regulating autonomy in the team-based organisations through collaborative research with industry. The project will develop these principles and guidelines by investigating across two areas of Norwegian industry facing fierce international competition: finance and ICT.
