    To make or fake sense of information technology?: strategic ambiguity as a source of radical changeManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    While Information Technology (IT) resources signal different meanings to different actors, strategy scholarship advocates the establishing of tight links between the functional role and strategic purpose of IT resources. Particularly, the “interpretative flexibility” of IT resources is depicted as an obstacle for effective strategy implementation that needs to be overcome through planned deployment, training, and control. We challenge this conventional assumption. Through applying a practice lens in a qualitative multi-site case study, we identify four types of IT resource configurations, theorizing IT resource ambiguity as a source for radical change. Ultimately, we observe how, when, and why ambiguous uses of IT can form critical elements of new IT strategy practices, and suggest several implications of the observed IT resource ambiguity for strategy and management research.

    The Role of YouTube in the Digitalization of TV: A Case Study of Novel Value Co-creation Practices at United Screens2017In: Proceedings of the 50th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, January 3-7, 2017, 2017, p. 4786-4795Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research has shown how incumbent firms in content- based industries (e.g. music, news and photography) were radically affected by digitalization as powerful digital platforms emerged as new loci of innovation. While scholars have suggested that digital technology calls for novel organizing logics and value creation processes, there is a need for further knowledge of what characterizes them, and how they emerge in practice. In addressing this gap we studied United Screens, a firm that capitalizes on the digitalization of video contents by managing major YouTubers and connecting them with advertisers. The study shows how United Screens leverages the layered modularity of digital product architectures for new constellation- based modes of value co-creation. Overall, the paper contributes to research on digital innovation by shedding light on how a novel actor category champions content-driven value creation, an underexplored aspect of digital platform ecosystems.

    Mapping Everyday Objects to Digital Materiality in The Wheel Quintet: Polytempic Music and Participatory Art2016In: 16th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME'16), 2016, p. 84-89Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digitalization has enabled material decoupling of sound from the physical devices traditionally used to conceive it. This paper reports an artistic exploration of novel mappings between everyday objects and digital sound. The Wheel Quintet – a novel musical instrument comprising four bicycle wheels and a skateboard – was created using off-the-shelf components and visual programming in Max/MSP. The use of everyday objects sought to enable people to quickly master the instrument, regardless of their musical backgrounds, and collectively create polytempic musical textures in a participatory art context. Applying an action research approach, the paper examines in detail two key cycles of planning, action, and analysis related to the instrument, involving an interactive museum exhibition open to the public and a concert hall performance conducted by an animated music notation system. Drawing on insights from the study, the paper contributes new knowledge concerning the creation and use of novel interfaces for music composition and performance enabled by digitalization.

    Digital innovation and changing identities: investigating organizational implications of digitalization2015Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The emergence of digital technology represents a paradigmatic historical shift. As a process transforming sociotechnical structures, digitalization has had pervasive effects on organizing structures and business logics, as well as contemporary society as a whole. In recent years, these effects have been particularly salient in the content-based (e.g. music and imaging), and most recently the print-media (e.g. newspapers and magazines) industries. Facing dramatically declining sales of print media products, publishers have sought to leverage digital technology for innovation. However, the digital revenues still do not yet typically compensate for the decline in print media sales. This thesis explores the organizational implications of digitalization in the media domain. Scholars have increasingly stressed that digital technology has some distinct characteristics that have fundamental implications for innovation. This thesis examines aspects of these implications that have been far from fully explored, including the roles of digital technologies as enablers of process innovation (new methods, procedures or responsibilities), product innovation outcomes (which shift or expand an organization's domain) and associated changes in organizational cognition and identity. The thesis is based on four empirical investigations, reported in appended papers, of the evolution of digital platforms, the new content creation practices they enable, and how traditional print media firms have sought to innovate and reorient themselves in relation to these novel phenomena. The composite analysis illustrates how the distinct characteristics of digital technologies are complicit in transitions from stable to fragile product categories, highlights the need for a dynamic approach to identity orientation, and discusses and proposes key concerns in scholarly studies of digital innovation in organizations based on insights generated by the underlying studies.

    From closed to open: ICT as an enabler for creating open innovation systems in industrial settings2010In: Industrial informatics design, use and innovation: Perspectives and services / [ed] Holmström, Jonny, Wiberg, Mikael & Lund, Andreas, Hershey: IGI Global , 2010, 1, p. 5-19Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Most forestry machines being produced today include a PC that monitors and controls the harvester head, and an information system that stores data on every action the driver or the machine performs. ICT thus provides an opportunity to improve efficiency and competitiveness and possibly also opens up for new ways of working for actors in the forestry industry. The purpose of this study is to investigate how ICT can enable the transformation from selling products to selling services in the forestry industry. The author investigates this through performing a case study including a number of actors from the forestry industry in northern Sweden. First, he investigates the barriers for establishing an open innovation system in forestry. Then he describes the main steps to be taken and how the use of ICT can enable the establishment of such a system. The case study shows that the forestry industry is committed to working according to a traditional value chain and is committed to a closed innovation paradigm. He argues that the ICT component in Timbercut’s forestry machines constitutes a latent potential that can be fully captured through changing the business model and setting up a joint venture with Rewire.

    Tracing emergent structure in self-organized citizen journalism2015In: Proceedings of the Forty-Eighth Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, January 5-8, 2015, Computer Society Press, 2015, Los Alamitos, California: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers , 2015, p. 1543-1552Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In citizen journalism, the citizens that used to form the mass audience utilize IT artifacts such as smart phones and social media to inform each other and the broader public. Previous research has highlighted how citizen journalism published on independent web-based platforms can substitute (or complement) traditional news publishing, and illuminated the challenges of integrating elements of citizen journalism into mainstream news organizations. Still, less is known about how self-organized citizen journalism processes emerge and evolve. The paper draws on complexity theory in a detailed analysis of an online forum thread in which users collaboratively investigated and published detailed information about a local murder case. The paper makes two main contributions to the literature on citizen journalism. Firstly, it demonstrates the efficacy of using a complexity perspective. Secondly, it illustrates and theorizes the ways in which IT-based citizen journalism was self- organized via a specific online forum through sequenced interaction themes.

    Digital innovation in context: Exploring serendipitous and unbounded digital innovation at the church of Sweden2019In: Information Technology and People, ISSN 0959-3845, E-ISSN 1758-5813, Vol. 32, no 3, p. 696-714Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate how digital innovation processes emerge and evolve in organizational settings, and how serendipitous and unbounded digital innovations affect organizations' overall digital directions.

    Design/methodology/approach: The authors draw on an interpretive case study of the Church of Sweden, tracing in detail the design, deployment and governance of an interactive website for digital prayer, the Prayer Web (PW).

    Findings: The findings show how the site came about in a serendipitous manner, created by an advertising agency as part of a marketing campaign. In turn, the unbounded nature of digital innovation was revealed as the wide and rapid adoption of the PW raised issues concerning the church's overall digital direction linked to centralized control, as well as the nature and role of pastors, prayer and communities, as the site allowed people to post prayers and spread their messages (initially with no moderation).

    Originality/value: The authors explore the serendipitous and unbounded ways in which digital innovation emerged and evolved in a traditional organization with a long legacy as an important societal institution. The paper contributes by generating rich insights on the role of the distinct aspects of digital technology in serendipitous and unbounded digital innovation. It particularly highlights how the editability and reprogrammability of digital artifacts triggered unexpected new behaviors and governance requirements in the organization under study. The authors encourage further research into the interrelationship between multiple unbounded and serendipitous digital innovations in an organization over time.

    Digital innovation strategy: a framework for diagnosing and improving digital product and service innovation2015In: Business Horizons, ISSN 0007-6813, E-ISSN 1873-6068, Vol. 58, no 1, p. 57-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital technology is increasingly important in achieving business goals, and its pervasive effects have resulted in the radical restructuring of entire industries. Consequently, managers’ extensive interest in handling digital innovation is not surprising. Recent research has illustrated how digital technologies give rise to a vast potential for product and service innovation that is difficult to control and predict. Therefore, firms need dynamic tools to support themselves in managing the new types of digital innovation processes that emerge. The nature of these processes forces firms to challenge prior assumptions about their product and service portfolio, their digital environment, and ways of organizing innovation work. In this article, we present a managerial framework that supports firms in this undertaking. The framework, geared at supporting ongoing improvements in digital innovation management, covers five key areas: user experience, value proposition, digital evolution scanning, skills, and improvisation. We also present a diagnostic tool that can be utilized as firms begin the process of implementing the framework. Finally, we conclude with our thoughts on the managerial implications of the framework when going forward in a rapidly changing digital innovation landscape.

    From forestry machines to sociotechnical hybrids: investigating the use of digitally enabled forestry machines2011In: Researching the future in information systems: proceedings of IFIP 8.2 / [ed] M. Chiasson, O. Henfridsson, H. Karsten, J.I. DeGross, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2011, p. 199-214Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Most forestry machines being produced today include a personal computer that monitors and controls the harvester head, and an information system that stores data on every action the driver or the machine performs. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) thus provide an opportunity to improve efficiency and competitiveness and possibly also opens up new ways of working for actors in the forestry industry. The purpose of this study is to investigate how ICT can enable the transformation from selling products to selling services in the forestry industry. We investigate such transformation through conducting a case study including a number of actors from the forestry industry in northern Sweden. First, we investigate the barriers for establishing an open innovation system in forestry. Then we describe how the use of ICTs can enable the establishment of such a system. The case study shows that the forestry industry as a whole is dominated by the salient traditional value chain where the raw materials are refined to paper products and that many of the actors are committed to a closed innovation paradigm. We argue that the ICT component in forestry machines constitutes a latent potential that can be fully captured in the context of an open innovation system.
