Abstract

Business models are important for both start-ups and established companies because they form the basis for a company's success by outlining their key factors. Business models can be created and documented in several ways. We focus on Business Model Canvases (BMC) and present MobiLean, a mobile application for the collaborative creation of BMCs. MobiLean is an easy and interactive smartphone app for groups of varying size in mixed-focus collaboration scenarios. We apply mobile-based interactions for the ease of use and the support of the creativity process. We contribute to the field of CSCW by providing a mobile application for the domain of co-working and aim to demonstrate how MobiLean supports creating, revising, and documenting BMCs.

Interaction designers for mobile phones mainly focus on displays but have only little knowledge about sensor characteristics. Beside multitouch input, mobile devices provide versatile possibilities to interact in a physical, device-based manner due to their built-in hardware. Even though such interactions may provide many advantages in everyday life, they have limited visibility in interaction design. Interaction designers are seldom domain experts in gesture and pattern recognition and even prototypical implementations of simple mobile device-based interaction techniques need advanced technical knowledge. Hence, the potential for designing mobile device-based interactions is often not fully exploited. To contribute to a common knowledge of mobile-based interactions, this paper proposes Mobile Spaces. This model aims at supporting designers of mobile applications to broaden their view on interaction possibilities with one or more collocated devices which go beyond the screen. We illustrate and discuss the applicability of Mobile Spaces by means of several examples from research.

Collaboration is essential in both the working and the learning context. Although there is a wide range of collaboration tools and technology, they mostly focus on one specific application and thus are seldom reusable for other domains. To provide reusable solutions, it seems to be reasonable to develop not for one explicit application but for recurring activities that collaborators perform. We identified typical collaborative activities in mixed-focus collaboration, e.g., creating content or presenting results, which we derived from literature survey, observation and existing tools. Collaboration activities aim to classify solutions and enable designers and developers to reuse them for other scenarios. We illustrate this approach with mobile interaction techniques for two collaboration activities. The presented interactions address collaborative comparing and sharing and are applicable for various scenarios. This approach extends other collaboration processes to focus on recurring activities and improve reusability of tools.

In collocated collaborative work, group members typi-cally create, edit and share content to perform specific tasks. Working digitally, e.g. with mobile devices, facili-tates the further processing. However, direct communi-cation plays a decisive role. Since some tasks have to be split to be worked on, individual results have to be discussed and merged for a final solution. We provide intuitive multi-device interactions to support group members in merging multiple partial solutions to one integrated solution seamlessly. Each mobile device shows one solution that can be used completely or in parts. Our proposed interactions include complementing one part of a solution with further parts. Furthermore, content can be added or replaced by “pouring” content between several mobile devices. We implemented an application prototype to show the feasibility of our in-teractions. They enable an integration of mobile devices in collaborative work without replacing direct communi-cation and support users in fulfilling their given tasks.

This poster presents a pragmatic risk assessment method based on best practice from the ISO 31000 family of standards regarding risk management. The method proposed is supported by established risk management concepts that can be applied to help a data repository to gain awareness of the risks and costs of the controls for the identified risks. In simple terms the technique that supports this method is a pragmatic risk registry that can be used to identify risks from a Business Model Canvas of an organization. A Business Model Canvas is a model used in strategic management to document existing business models and develop new ones.

In collocated collaborative creativity work, such as mind mapping or other brainstorming sessions, a group of persons has to solve different tasks as well as discuss and decide on one of the various proposed solutions at the same place. Since mobile devices are increasingly used in collaborative work, these tasks also can be performed digitally. This work addresses the process of voting for one solution out of several proposals. We provide intuitive multi-device interactions for a seamless ranking and voting using multiple mobile devices. They each represent one solution to a given task. Our proposed voting interactions include turning devices and rearranging their order according to their ratings. We demonstrate the feasibility of our interactions by implementing an application prototype. They facilitate the involvement of mobile devices in collaborative work as well as the support of users during voting and ranking processes.

The presented article is aimed at studying the specifics of using the relatively new management concept model canvasin competitiveness management and creating the competitive advantages of enterprise structures in the industrial agriculture. On the one hand, agribusiness is an important and major sector of any national economy, but on the other hand, the risks of agribusiness are also significantly high, what prevents many enterprise structures from being competitive. According to the authors of the presented article, enterprise structures in the industrial agriculture could secure their competitive advantages through forming and regular renewal of business model canvas. During the presentation of this work the following main conclusions have been drawn: a) enterprise structures in the industrial agriculture are the most fragile in the terms of maintaining the competitiveness and the ability for the sustainable development, as the activity of such entities is determined by a large set of internal and external environmental factors; b) the management concept businessmodelcanvas is designed for managing the strategic sustainable and competitive development of the enterprise structures in the context of the turbulent and unpredictable changes in the market environment; c) using the management concept business model canvas has its own specific application in creating the competitive advantages of enterprise structures in the industrial agriculture, which is due to the features of the production and selling cycle organization.

IT is a major driver of business model innovation and servitization. Representations of business models are widely used tools for analyzing instances of these developments as well as for the ideation of novel services and service business models. However , current representations of business models fail to capture essential aspects of service, such as co- creation. In response to these shortcomings, the paper presents a representation for service business models. The utility and efficacy of this alternative business model representation is demonstrated with a case study of a proximity m-payment service in the German retail industry. We apply and compare the Business Model Canvas as well as the Service Business Model Canvas. Based on this application, we present an evaluation by an informed argument of the representation.

Diagrams and tools help to support task modelling in engineering and process management. Unfortunately they are unfit to help in a business context at a strategic level, because of the flexibility needed for creative thinking and user friendly interactions. We propose a tool which bridges the gap between freedom of actions, encouraging creativity, and constraints, allowing validation and advanced features.

Users of synchronous groupware systems act both as individuals and as members of a group, and designers must try to support both roles. However, the requirements of individuals and groups often conflict, forcing designers to support one at the expense of the other. The tradeoff is particularly evident in the design of interaction techniques for shared workspaces. Individuals demand powerful and flexible means for interacting with the workspace and its artifacts, while groups require information about each other to maintain awareness. Although these conflicting requirements present real problems to designers, the tension can be reduced in some cases. We consider the tradeoff in three areas of groupware design: workspace navigation, artifact manipulation, and view representation. We show techniques such as multiple viewports, process feedthrough, action indicators, and view translations that support the needs of both individuals and groups.
