My research is broadly concerned with the question of how to address digital transformation challenges. Within that broad scope, I am particularly interested in the following areas:
Business and societal impact of emerging technologies
Recent forms of management including agility at scale or resilience during rare events (e.g. Covid-19 crises)
Digital governance, innovation strategies and competitiveness
Organizational behavior (among others, the role of culture and leadership) and performance optimization
Social technologies (e.g. Web 2.0/ Social Media) for knowledge creation and sharing
Models of absorptive capacity and IT-enabled capabilities
Dynamic capability theory and its application in IS
My research methods contain elements of both qualitative and quantitative approaches, including:
Mixed method research
Positivist and interpretive case studies including grounded theory
Quantitative methods and analysis (field surveys)
Structural equation modeling
Analytic hierarchy process
I particularly welcome research that spans disciplinary boundaries, particularly those bridging information systems and organizational theory.
