The 2nd IAIS Reverse Conference Jun 07, 2006 from 09:30 AM to 04:30 PM National University of Ireland, Galway.,
The 2nd IAIS Reverse Conference: Innovation, Agility & Resilience - A Workshop for Researchers, at the J. E. Cairnes Graduate School of Business & Public Policy. National University of Ireland, Galway. June 7, 2006. Most conferences are primarily comprised of research papers delivered to the audience via once-off presentations. Many researchers have called for a different format whereby new ideas for papers can be circulated, debated and formalised, as opposed to the traditional format where only completed pieces of work are presented. This workshop reverses the traditional process by focusing on research paper creation rather than delivery. It follows on from a very successful inaugural IAIS reverse conference held in Ballyvaughan, County Clare in August 2005. The event is sponsored by the IAIS and IFIP8.6.

Configuration of Research Methods in Information Systems Jun 20, 2005 from 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM Q233 Quinn School,
"The Configuration of Research Methods in Information Systems - A preliminary Framework". ***Abstract*** Research in IS is geared to the ideal of behavioristic social sciences. However, in recent years, there has been a plethora of publications, which question whether a neo-positivistic approach is the only proper research method in Information Systems. When it comes to the realisation of future business models and the deployment of future technologies, the development of methods and design artefacts seems to be more suitable. However, such an approach - sometimes referred to as "design science" or "constructive" - implies severe epistemological problems, which are mainly related to the very notion of scientific research. Does a design artefact qualify for a result of scientific research? If so, what is the difference between a scientific design artefact and artefacts produced by consultants or software firms? Within the neo-positivistic paradigm, research results are hypotheses or theories, which are evaluated by testing them against reality using accepted research methods and common concepts of truth - such as the 'correspondence theory of truth'. However, this kind of evaluation is not possible for design-oriented research, unless you want to wait for the many years it would take to apply and test the approach in practice. Against this background, the presentation will focus on three questions: What are the criteria, a decision between a behavioristic approach and a constructive approach could be based on? How could a research method look like that fits the specific requirements of a constructive approach? How could both approaches to IS research be combined in a synergetic way?

CITO research seminar "Design of a Visual Thinking Environment for Creating Knowledge of Situated Organizational Experience" Nov 08, 2006 from 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM Q233, Quinn School, Belfield,
You are cordially invited to a research seminar hosted by CITO and the MIS Department on Wednesday November 8 at 4pm in the Quinn Building room Q233. Professor Richard J. Boland Jr. from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University will discuss a theme he has been developing under the working title "Design of a Visual Thinking Environment for Creating Knowledge of Situated Organizational Experience". Dick explains; "As part of a larger effort to promote design thinking in management, I explore the design of a visual thinking environment for reflecting upon the personal experience of acting responsibly in an organizational setting. In developing this visual thinking environment, I will synthesize ideas from several key authors: the philosopher John Dewey, the art theorist Rudolph Arnheim, the novelist Walker Percy and the language theorists George Lakoff and Mark Johnson. Using Dewey, I characterize the organizational actor as actively engaging organizational life and seeking its betterment. Using Rudolph Arnheim, I depict the organizational actor as being centered in a multidimensional situation, which is experienced as force fields. Using Walker Percy, I emphasize the existential experience of the organizational actor, and the queer way in which language involves a dynamic of reversals, rotations and transcendence. Using Lakoff and Johnson, I emphasize that the predicaments experienced by the organizational actor are based on the experience of being embodied and confronting the problem of self and other. I then propose the design of a visual thinking environment in which the individual can visualize the changing field of forces in their situation, and can explore possibilities for seeking organizational betterment."

Offshoring Information Technology Jan 28, 2005 from 04:00 PM to 05:30 PM Room Q233 Belfield, Quinn School of Business,
At 4pm on Friday 28 Jan in Room Q233, Professor Erran Carmel (who is currently visiting the MIS department from American University, Washington DC) will give a research seminar entitled "Offshoring Information Technology". [ABSTRACT] Ireland was one of the first of the new software export nations – or using today’s parlance, Ireland was one of the first offshore destinations. Yet today, much of the attention has shifted to low-wage destinations such as India. We will survey the global landscape of offshoring. What are the implications for the client firm? For the provider firm? For the client nation? For the provider nation? And what are the implications for the technical teams that now must collaborate over great distances and across time zones and cultures? I have been researching the domain of global software development for a decade now. I have been using three levels of analysis: the team (the distributed team); the firm (the client firm, typically); and the nation (the nation that seeks to enter the software export game).

GSW Workshop Sep 25, 2007 from 08:40 AM to 10:40 PM University of Limerick,
Collaborative Work in GSD Workshop. Global Software Development (GSD) is a growing focus of attention in universities and firms worldwide. The motives for distributing software development on a global scale include expected reductions in costs, exploiting a broader skills base, and being closer to emerging markets. In GSD, business units collaborate across time zones, organizational boundaries, work cultures and geographical distances, something that ultimately has led to an increasing diversification and growing complexity of collaborative working practices. The real-world practice of developing software in globally distributed projects has been viewed from various perspectives, though technical and engineering in conjunction with managerial and organizational viewpoints have dominated the research agenda so far. Successful participation in GSD, however, is ultimately a matter of the participants understanding and exploiting the particularities of their respective local contexts at specific points in time and exploring practical solutions through the resources available to local actors. During this workshop, we would like to focus on GSD as a collaborative human activity, where the participants are highly dependent on computer-based technologies to be able to cooperate across geographical boundaries and to accomplish their work.

Seminar: Strategic Group Analysis of Hybrid Commerce Firms Jun 16, 2006 from 11:30 AM to 12:50 PM Q013,
A Strategic Group Analysis of Hybrid Commerce Firms: Implications for Managing Technological Change. Abstract: Retail organizations are currently undergoing significant transformations to integrate their physical and online retail channels. This emerging form of e-commerce, known as hybrid commerce, refers to the conduct of business with consumers through the provision of integrated information and innovative cross-channel services. The successful adaptation to a hybrid organizational form requires extensive technological and process changes. Due to resource constraints and strategic focus, firms might choose to integrate only certain aspects of their retail operations. The objective of this study is to provide a competitive mapping of the current state of hybrid commerce in the retail industry in order to guide the hybrid commerce innovation process. Using the data collected from 125 hybrid commerce organizations in Singapore, we performed a strategic group analysis to develop a taxonomy of 4 distinct types of organizations. These different forms of integrators were found to manifest performance differences. Our results provide useful insights to understand the strategic options available to manage the technological change as well as the performance implications in making the transition to different stages of hybrid commerce. Biography of speaker: Lih-Bin Oh is an Instructor and doctoral candidate in the Department of Information Systems at the National University of Singapore.

Dr Pamela Abbott (who has recently joined us in the MIS Department and CITO) will give a research seminar entitled "Proximity-based Offshore Outsourcing: Models for Globalisation Theories" on Friday 25 February. For further details, please see the abstract below. Date: Friday 25 February Time: 4pm Venue: Q233, Quinn School of Business, BELFIELD. ALL WELCOME (please circulate) With best wishes Séamas ----------------- ABSTRACT ----------------- In this talk I will first review the major research topics explored in my PhD thesis, the abstract of which is appended below. I will then discuss my current research plans and areas in which I believe my research can engage in future. The talk is intended to inform colleagues of my general research pursuits and to encourage discussion on commonalities of interests and possible collaboration. PROXIMITY-BASED MODELS OF OFFSHORE SOFTWARE OUTSOURCING: Exploring the Concept of Location in Nearshore and Onshore Software Outsourcing Ventures The literature on offshore software outsourcing (OSO) has focused mainly on countries with large software export markets, such as India, while neglecting other developing countries which apparently lack the resources thought necessary to succeed in software development. Globalisation is seen to offer an opportunity for the development of IT industries in these neglected contexts, however, mainly due to the prevalence of information and communication networks. With the ongoing debate on globalisation and its contested effects, though, it would seem important and timely to study OSO within such under-researched contexts. This thesis thus focuses on proximity-based models of offshore outsourcing, such as nearshore and onshore outsourcing, which represent arrangements that seek to exploit geographical closeness to the client. In promoting locational competitive advantage, they seek differentiation from traditional offshore models in temporal, spatial and cultural terms. As a means of examining these claims, this thesis will explore the themes of time, space, culture and distance in OSO. An exploratory approach was employed incorporating both survey and case study methodologies. Three groups of offshore software industry stakeholders were surveyed to provide a broad-based background to the study, while three specific cases of proximity outsourcing were investigated using interpretive methods. A grounded approach to theory was adopted using the concepts of time, space, culture and distance as a guideline for analysis. The survey findings confirm an awareness by stakeholders of the significance of proximity, location and the persistence of cultural differences in OSO. The case results broadly reflect but also pose challenges to globalisation theories, such as increased economic and social integration, powerlessness of the state, economic development and the apparent irrelevance of space and time made possible by advances in IT. The thesis thus makes its contribution in both extending the debate on globalisation with respect to OSO in new contexts and adding to the under-researched area of spatio-temporal research in the IS field.

The Dark Side of Organization from Jun 25, 2008 10:05 AM to Jun 27, 2008 11:05 PM Sheffield, UK,
In this two-day conference, we wish to explore, track, display and dis-member the ‘dark side’ of organization. We are interested in the perhaps instinctual, impulsive, non organized and hidden dynamics that influence organizing, and especially its ‘upsetting’ part.

Uncommonsense Making Jan 16, 2008 04:21 PM
The creation of knowledge within organizations Nov 24, 2005 from 12:00 PM to 01:30 PM Judge Business School, Cambridge,
**Seminar by Professor Haridimos Tsoukas** **Topic: "The creation of knowledge within organizations - a post rationalist approach"** **Abstract:** Despite several insightful studies on how new knowledge is created in organizations, there is still no satisfactory answer to the question, "what are the generative mechanisms through which new organizational knowledge is created?" The purpose of this paper is to answer this question by drawing on the work of phenomenological philosophers such as Dreyfus and Taylor, literary theorists such as Bakhtin, and developmental psychologists such as Mead, Shotter and Wertsch. Building on the concept of interaction, which previous theories of organizational knowledge have identified to be the bedrock for knowledge creation, the paper argues that in organized settings new knowledge comes from the exercise of judgment - the individual ability to draw new distinctions concerning a task at hand, typically in the context of a group. New distinctions may be developed since human experiences already involve a certain level of articulation and as such they admit of further articulation. The process of articulation develops through organizational members engaging in three kinds of dialogical encounters: with real others, with imaginal others and with artifacts. Each kind of dialogue is conceptualized and illustrated. The overall dialogical approach adopted in this paper is illustrated by drawing on the work of Donald Schön.

The programme structure as follows; DAY 1 THURSDAY 20 APRIL. Rm Q201 - Quinn Building, Belfield Campus. ** Module 1. with basic demonstrations taking place for first ~1.5 hours for unrestricted numbers (NOT HANDS-ON). ** Module 2. the rest of the day geared for serious ‘users’ (15 max) about to ‘use’ TOTALLY HANDS-ON. Serious users attending Module 2 must have attended Module 1. DAY 2 FRIDAY 21 APRIL. Rm Q233 - Quinn Building, Belfield Campus. ** TOTALLY HANDS-ON Master class: Focus on Team or Project specific qualitative field work. Again, for serious users (15 max). This module requires individual and group preparation prior to commencement. You will need to provide qualitative field data from your own research (e.g. primary, secondary or tertiary sources). You will use Atlas.ti actively on your own data. This session prepares you to work on your specific project and will include team logistics involved in using Atlas.ti as shared qualitative analysis tool. AFTERNOON OF DAY 2. Research Seminar: We may also arrange for a ~1+ hr research seminar hosted by BRP (in NuDIMS format) on Friday afternoon, subject to interest and agreement.
Atlas ti Research Training from Feb 01, 2007 08:30 AM to Feb 02, 2007 11:10 PM Room Q108,
Atlas Two-Day Workshop, February 1st and 2nd. Room Q108, Quinn School School Belfield. Laptop required. Those interested in attending please contact Peadar Ó Scolaí to confirm your place. The aim of this session is to provide a thorough overview of ATLAS.ti 5 and to start planning for working on a real project. The session begins with demonstration and discussion of the main aspects of the software, providing an overview of its potential and an idea of its long-term usage. The hands-on sessions ground participants in the basic tools and tasks which usually occupy them for some time in a real project. We encourage effective and flexible use of tools, whilst staying in control of the work you do in the software. The course will suit those who have looked at or used ATLAS.ti to a limited extent, and those who are complete beginners. However you should already have some idea about what your approach to qualitative data will be. The course does not teach you ‘how to do’ qualitative data analysis per se, although we raise methodological and analytic issues in discussing projects. Tasks covered: Familiarization with major attributes of the software. Assigning textual and multimedia data. Working at the textual level, exploring data. Marking - annotating - memoing - coding - basic retrieval February 2nd: 10AM Q108: Day 2 Intermediate Session : Moving on with ATLAS.ti. This session will build on the work covered in Day 1 to think in more depth about the analytic tasks and begin to use the more sophisticated tools ATLAS.ti provides. Tasks covered: Network tool - Query tool - Text searching - Autocoding – Output Object Explorer - Object Crawler Backing - up and moving projects
