Article
Full-text available
Information systems research has a long-standing interest in how organizations gain value through information technology. In this article, we investigate a business process intelligence (BPI) technology that is receiving increasing interest in research and practice: process mining. Process mining uses digital trace data to visualize and measure the...
Article

In this paper, we respond to Grover and Lyytinen (2022). We agree with them that the advent of the digital age is calling for a reconsideration of the role of theory and theorizing. We also think their proposal does not go far enough. The time is ripe to question the role of theory in our field more fundamentally. We propose to instead focus on est...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This thesis investigates organizational complexity, i.e. the dynamic behavior that emerges from the interaction of distinct parts of an organization. In particular, it examines structural complexity, i.e. how organizations organize themselves as well as process complexity, i.e. how they carry out work. In this extended abstract, we focus on the dis...
Article
Full-text available
Information systems students need to be prepared to understand and manage unfolding dynamics in businesses operating in a digital world. We present a university course that systematically integrates knowledge from two streams of research that deal with dynamics: business process management and routine dynamics. Both streams of research study proces...
Article
Process mining is a research area focusing on the design of algorithms that can automatically provide insights into business processes. Among the most popular algorithms are those for automated process discovery, which have the ultimate goal to generate a process model that summarizes the behavior recorded in an event log. Past research had the aim...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Digital artifacts increasingly support actors in carrying out organizational routines. These artifacts leave digital trace data, that is, time-stamped data about what actions actors performed. While extant research on routines largely builds on qualitative methods, the increasing ubiquitousness and prevalence of trace data enables novel methodologi...
Chapter
Full-text available
Situation faced: How to include employees in decisions? How to keep the organizational design responsive to changes in the environment? And how to support all this by means of information technology? Ruben Timmerman, the founder of Springest, asked himself these questions as his company grew from a start-up to a medium-sized platform business. Act...
Conference Paper

Digital artifacts increasingly support actors in carrying out organizational routines. These artifacts leave digital trace data, that is time-stamped information about what actions actors perform. While extant research on routines largely builds on qualitative methods, the prevalence of trace data opens up novel methodological opportunities. Howeve...
Preprint
Full-text available
Process mining is a research area focusing on the design of algorithms that can automatically provide insights into business processes by analysing historic process execution data, known as event logs. Among the most popular algorithms are those for automated process discovery, whose ultimate goal is to generate the best process model that summariz...
Article
Full-text available
This report documents the outcomes of a professional development workshop (PDW) held at the 40th International Conference on Information Systems in Munich, Germany. The workshop’s goal was to identify how information systems (IS) researchers can contribute to enriching the understanding of digital entrepreneurship—that is, the intersection of digit...
Chapter
Full-text available
The fields of business process management and routine dynamics both investigate organizational processes. However, the lexicons, methods, and aims of these disciplines are very different from one another. In this chapter, we reflect on both disciplines to outline similarities and differences. We introduce the reader to the BPM life cycle and explai...
Chapter
Process standardization is for many companies a matter of strategic importance. Process standardization enables companies to provide consistent quality to customers and to realize returns of scale. Research in this area has investigated how process standardization impacts process outcomes, such as cycle time, quality, and costs. However, there are...
Chapter
Competition is forcing organizations to constantly innovate and identify ways to deliver high quality services and products. The Business Process Management (BPM) discipline has contributed by providing a rich set of analysis and re-design techniques. However, BPM methods and guidelines are often driven by process standardization and economies of s...
Conference Paper
Process-oriented companies face the dichotomy of process standardization versus process diversity. On the one hand, multinational companies try to realize returns of scale by standardization. On the other hand, markets require businesses to adapt to local needs and government regulations. As of today , there is no framework available to measure the...

We are an informal and collaborative incubator for research on organizational phenomena of societal concern, such as new forms of organizing, grand challenges, artificial intelligence, organizational design etc. For this, we believe that dialogue and collaboration with practice is essential. We study organizational phenomena through a routine dynamics lens, e.g. focusing on actions, practices and tools. We are creating research rather than disseminating finished work; a forum for asking questions, not just presenting answers. As such, we are incubating… • New research ideas • New methodologies • New research collaborations Our values include • Space for discussion and reflection • Open for new ideas, connections, theories… • Experimenting • Sense of community and helping each other • Relaxed and fun atmosphere We meet triannually in different locations across Europe.
