This essay derives a schema for specifying design principles for information technology-based artifacts in sociotechnical systems. Design principles are used to specify design knowledge in an accessible form, but there is wide variation and lack of precision across views on their formulation. This variation is a sign of important issues that should...

(https://aisel.aisnet.org/jais_preprints/37) This paper investigates how information systems design professionals use design principles (extracted from a prior design science research project) in a new design situation. We do this by capturing think-aloud protocols from experienced design professionals who are given access to potentially useful des...

Representation theory conceives of information systems (IS) as providing faithful representations of focal real-world phenomena, such as goods, processes, or services. Some digital artifacts, however, create alternate realities, representing phenomena that are neither observable nor exist outside those artifacts (e.g., video games or virtual worlds...

Digital agents with human-like characteristics have become ubiquitous in our society and are increasingly relevant in commercial applications. While some of them closely resemble humans in appearance (e.g., digital humans), they still lack many subtle social cues that are important for interacting with humans. Among them are the so-called microexpr...
Chapter
Design principles capture prescriptive design knowledge to guide design science researchers and design professionals in their design works. In the context of a transdisciplinary team, design principles can also be a powerful vehicle to bridge knowledge barriers and facilitate collaboration among team members with different backgrounds and expertise...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The development of design principles is an important ingredient in design science research. Design principles capture and formalize lessons learned from a situational design endeavour to guide both academics and practitioners alike in build-ing similar artefacts. Although the development procedure is highly iterative and creative, it requires a cer...

When formulating prescriptive design knowledge in design science research (DSR), we usually reflect on our vision of created artifacts, relevant design decisions, and what we have learned throughout the design process. Seldom do we attempt to extract prescriptive knowledge from existing and widely acknowledged artifacts in the manner of ex-post fac...

We review existing system-based solutions to the growing problem of technostress. Based on an analysis of 102 digital applications for stress management, we find several significant limitations in the approaches of these tools and sparse evidence of their effectiveness in dealing with technostress. Thereafter, we propose a blueprint for an autonomo...

This paper contributes to the understanding of the role of collaborative tools and objects in the emergence and support of shared leadership, which has been associated with positive team dynamics and innovative outcomes. We draw on ideas from the recent discourse on viewing leadership as a practice that involves human actors and material or technol...
Chapter
Even though the practice of integrating evaluative features into software has long been applied in commercially available software, it is still underrepresented in the Information Systems (IS) community. This paper presents a framework for embedded evaluation support. We are aware of the challenges of evaluation of socio-technical systems and take...
Presentation
Design principles are used to convey design knowledge in the information systems field. To facilitate the application of design principles they need to be reusable, and this reuse often in-volves modification and re-combination. But what are appropriate properties of the formulation of design principles that support their reusability including modi...
Conference Paper
Studying a digital phenomenon involves dealing with mystery, due to the increased opaqueness of the underlying digital technologies. Inquiring into mysteries, however, requires common grammars and vocabularies that at the same time promotes creative discourse. This also implies a call for strategies to cope with the general reluctance to embrace co...

Recent discourse in the Design Science Research community addresses the necessity to accumulate and reuse design knowledge. However, design methods are complex and so are the traditional ways to document design knowledge. Inspired by the high business and academic impact of Business Model Canvas, we argue that a single-page portrayal of nine design...

Designing can be viewed as a collective activity that accumulates and reuses knowledge over time and, in the information systems field, such knowledge often takes the form of design principles. While design principles are now a predominant from to capture, accumulate, and reuse design knowledge, their reusability cannot be taken for granted. In thi...

Digital technologies are ubiquitous and innovation lies in recombination of modules and different architectural layers: content, service, network and device. Consequently, we witness the upsurge of digitalization in our everyday lives. From a researcher’s perspective, this alters both the research site and the research process. Even though digital...

Project
We aim to explore the aesthetics of multisensory experience in the digital worlds and understand how such an experience can be digitalized (its logics). We are also interested in the ethics of this digitally mediated (or produced) multisensory experience.
Project
The main goal of this project is to develop a framework for analyzing digital artifacts in the context of DSR, practical IT projects, and organizational development.
Project
To propose a blueprint for an autonomous software agent that not only addresses the root of technostress by building user resilience towards technostress, but also generates contextually rich information that system creators and organizations can act upon to be more responsive to the experiences of individual users.
