    "Det finns en "vi och dem"-känsla som beror på det geografiska": En kvalitativ fallstudie om hur samhörighet skapas på distribuerade IT-konsultbolag med hjälp av IKT2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    IT consulting firms increasingly work distributed with employees based in different geographic locations. In this there is a difficulty in developing and maintaining good soli- darity and togetherness. Former research indicates that organizations need to frame and comply with strategies regarding distributed work in order to be successful and competi- tive. This inquiry purpose to study the requirements needed to invent solidarity and togetherness in IT consulting firms. In this qualitative research the empirical data is gathe- red through semi-structured interviews which is complemented with relevant literature. In order to create a distinct structure a theoretical framework with focus on social processes has been designed. By using the theoretical framework concrete strategies was formulated. The essence in this inquiry’s conclusion is the comprehension of invisible values in distri- buted IT consulting firms. Invisible values refers to none-measurable aspects in the social working environment. This inquiry results in a few concrete suggestions regarding te- chnical solutions that can support the social processes in distributed organizations.

    Off-Shore Blackboxing & Global Software Development: En studie av utmaningar och möjligheter med distribuerad systemförvaltning2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Global Software Development (GSD) is based on a geographical distance where teams are spread throughout the world. The related research have for a long time addressed the challenges presented by geographical distances. GSD is basically a necessity for many businesses to use in order to reduce development costs, reduce production time and to maintain high quality. The study aims to investigate the relationship between the reality of a specific maintenance project. Thus, our research question: How do distributed maintenance teams experience temporal, geographical and socio-cultural distances? To achieve the purpose of the study, we chose to perform a case study of a global consulting company which recently started a new system maintenance project. The data collection was done through interviews and observations at the premises of the consulting company. We have confirmed the previous research and come up with our own contributions to the field. The findings of our thesis provides aspects of communication, coordination and control related to the three distances stated in our research question. A new collective term has also emerged, off-shore blackboxing.

    Telepresence communication för människor i kontorsmiljö: En kvalitativ studie i användarupplevelse av Mobile Robotic Telepresence2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As companies are more globalised and teams become more geographically distributed, the demand for technical solutions to bring more variety of communication increases. The aim of this study is to get a deeper understanding of how Mobile Robotic Telepresence is perceived by people  that is working in an office for a non-technological oriented company, and is interacting with it for the first time. The study was conducted at the participants office during workday where they got to control and practically explore the robot through a computer. The result shows that there is a positive attitude towards new technology and possible solutions for people that would like to cut down on work-related travels or a new way to arrange meeting. even though there were positive attitude, only half of the participants saw a clear use for the robot in their current work environment.

    HIGH SCORE: A qualitative study on how gaming can further awareness in office environments2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Gamification as an educational tool has been explored extensively in traditional academic contexts such as universities and schools. There is however a lack of research on the usage of games for educational purposes in organizations, and even less research has evaluated games’ potential in creating organizational awareness. To understand if companies could benefit from gamification, this study looked at how employees’ professional backgrounds, social interaction and context during a game experience can influence employees’ awareness of the organization. In order to do that, a digital game that portrayed the supply chain process of an industrial company and focused on specific key aspects was built and tested with 17 employees in a large international organization. The results show that digital games can further both awareness of the organization by letting employees play and experience key aspects of the delivery process. The most noticeable increase in awareness were with the participants whose work is not directly involved in the supply chain.

    Gamification i utbildning: Hur görs det på bästa sätt?2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Gamification is the use of elements and mechanics from the video-game industry in contexts which are not game-related. Gamification has, in the last decade, become a popular way to enhance a lot of contexts, such as medicine, business and education, by creating intrinsic motivation and engagement as well as changing behavior in the userbase. While a big part of the published science related to gamification is concerned with the question of “does gamification work?”, the question of what makes it work and why it works have gotten less attention. This study researches how to design a gamification experience in the context of education in the best possible way, including what the most common pitfalls are and how to avoid them, by studying the published literature on gamification in the context of education.

    The results of the study suggest that adhering to the self-determination theory (SDT) from the field of psychology is important in creating intrinsic motivation, and that a key part of gamification design may lie in choosing game elements which fulfil the three basic needs proposed by SDT: relatedness, competence and autonomy. A common pitfall in the design of gamification seems to be failure to fulfill these three needs. The study also shows that while gamification yields positive results for many people, a small but significant portion of the population does not gain any benefit from many gamification experiences. This suggests that an analysis of the future users of the gamification experience should be done prior to designing the gamification experience. Lastly, useful design principles are also found and discussed.

    A manual alphabet for touchless gesture-controlled writing input with a myoelectric device: Design, evaluation and user experience2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The research community around gesture-based interaction has so far not paid attention to the possibility of replacing the keyboard with natural gestures for writing purposes. Additionally, insight into the actual user experience of such an interaction style is only insufficiently provided. This work presents a novel approach for text input that is based on a manual alphabet, MATImyo. The hand alphabet was developed in a user-centered design process involving potential users in pre-studies, design process and evaluation procedure. In a Wizard-of-Oz style experiment with accompanying interviews, the alphabet’s quality as input language for composing electronic texts was evaluated and the user experience of such an interaction style assessed. MATImyo was found to be very suitable as gestural input language with a positive user experience. The whole process of designing MATImyo and evaluating its suitability and user experience was based on the principles of Embodied Interaction, which was chosen as theoretical framework. This work contributes to understanding the bigger picture of the user experience of gesture-based interaction and presents a novel, more natural text input method.

    Abstract [en]

    The concept of open innovation is about outsourcing part of the innovation process to external actors and to make use of other resources and knowledge than your own. This is one possible way to meet the challenges that today’s competitive and fast market places on companies. Open innovation has created conditions for open events such as hackathons and through these kind of events, ideas can be generated that companies can use in their business. Outside-in is a perspective of open innovation as a means to integrate external knowledge and ideas into its own operations, and this study takes place in the context of open innovation with an outside-in perspective. The study aims to find how the methods, techniques and tools affects the transition from an idea to an internal project, which results in new products and services. The study is qualitative and data has been collected through interviews with companies which have extensive knowledge of working with innovation. The result of the study shows there is a gap in the transformation of ideas and internal projects, and that there are no systematic approach to the methods, techniques and tools used to facilitate the transformation.

    Effektiv crossmedia - Att äta kakan och ha den kvar: En kvalitativ studie om hur småföretag kan effektivisera sin marknadsföring2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Crossmedia is a phenomenon that is widely used for marketing despite the fact that far from everyone are familiar with the word. Crossmedia has many advantages if used effectively, although this is not always the case. Small business owners are facing many challenges, among which limited time and budget are the most common. Research shows that marketing is a challenge for small businesses and that they often lack concrete plans and strategies. It also suggests that some sort of guidance, for example in the shape of DIY-tools, would be beneficial for small business owners since hiring communication agencies usually is too expensive. Three local small business owners have been interviewed in this study in order to investigate the thoughts they have about marketing and to what extent they use crossmedia. It was found that all respondents use crossmedia to some extent and that all of them experience challenges related to marketing. All respondents also agreed that the need for assistance in marketing exists among small business owners. With this in mind, a checklist has been created as a part of this study to assist small business owners in their marketing practice and help them implement successful use of crossmedia. Surveys have been used to evaluate the checklist and the results show additional support for the thesis that this kind of help is useful for small business owners.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to shine a light on the challenges connected to the implementation of a process focused way of thinking in a public service organization. To this we have conducted a series of qualitative interviews, primarily from participants of a university driven project. The project aims to teach decision making employees of public service organizations how to use process modeling techniques to increase their efficiency. We have also interviewed the teachers who have taught the courses included in the project. As a final point of view we have also interviewed a researcher and IT consultants to compare novice users with experienced users of process modeling techniques. The interviews resulted in a high amount of data which we then analyzed by categorizing the data in five different categories. These categories provided the base of our result and originated solely from our interviews. We found that we had two main categories, comprehension of the organization and comprehension of the notation. We also found three categories that influenced these two main categories, communication, external factors and synergies and distribution. Our analysis showed that every category, or challenge if you will, could be connected in some way to previous research. As a conclusion we could show that all of our five categories could be verified as challenges connected to the implementation of a process focused way of thinking in a public service organization.
