UK OR Annual Conference, Exeter from Sep 03, 2013 09:00 AM to Sep 05, 2013 05:30 PM
UK OR Society Annual Conference, University of Exeter, September 3-5, 2013.
UKAIS 2007 from Apr 11, 2007 08:10 AM to Apr 12, 2007 05:10 PM University of Manchester,
UKAIS conference is the premiere academic event in the Information Systems calendar within the UK and attracts leading academics and researchers from the UK and overseas. Despite over 20 years of work and research in IS, there still seems to be a lot of confusion as to the role of IS within the organisation and whether the two should be seen so separately. Should we be talking about IS strategy as separate from organisational strategy? How have organisations changed, what are people's expectations and lifestyles, and how has IS enabled more integrated thinking about IS as an enabler of change. In the 70's we had the organisation man, and in the 21st century we have the networked person! What are the implications for IS as a discipline, and the view of integrated IS in organisations, and where are we going to take this set of ideas next?

"The Role of Work in Developing Human Capability" by Jane Bryson Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand and SKOPE (Centre on skills, knowledge & organisational performance), University of Oxford, UK. Abstract: This presentation explores how work acts as both driver of, contributor to, and barrier to, developing human capability. The optimal conditions for developing human capability in New Zealand organisations are the focus of a large research programme the “Developing Human Capability: employment institutions, organisations and individuals” project. This paper reports recent findings of case study research for this project which explores institutional, organisational and individual influences on the development of human capability in New Zealand workplaces. The paper outlines: key themes from various bodies of literature addressing capability (including Sen 1999); the approach taken to the case studies; recent findings and their implications for our understanding of the role of work in developing human capability.

MIS Seminar - Dr Yossi Lichtenstein - Real Options in IT Risk Management: An Empirical Validation of Risk-Option Relationships Apr 06, 2006 from 02:00 PM to 03:30 PM Quinn School of Business, UCD, Belfield. Room Q233,
MIS Seminar - Dr Yossi Lichtenstein - Real Options in IT Risk Management: An Empirical Validation of Risk-Option Relationships. Recently, an option-based risk management (OBRiM) framework has been proposed to control risk and maximize value in IT-investment decisions. While the framework is prescriptive in nature, its core logic rests on a set of normative risk-option mappings for choosing which particular real options to embed in an investment in order to control specific risks. This study tests empirically whether these mappings are observed in practice. The research site is a large Irish financial services organization with well established IT risk management practices not tied to any real options framework. Our analysis of the risk management plans developed for a broad portfolio of 50 IT investments finds ample empirical support for OBRiM’s risk-option mappings. While this shows that IT managers’ intuitions and practices correspond well with the logic of option-based risk management, we are concerned that applying this logic solely based on intuition could lead to suboptimal or counterproductive results. We therefore argue that managerial intuition ought to be supplemented with the use of formal real option models, which allow for better quantitative insights into which risk mitigations to pursue and combine in order to effectively address the risks most worth controlling.
