AMCIS 2017 SIG OSRA Track

Track Chairs

By adopting, adapting, or developing IS, organizations undergo a considerable transformation often referred to as “digital transformation”. As a result, business processes, business models, work systems, and end-user workplaces are perpetually analyzed, rethought, and changed. Rather than an organization’s IS function, today, customers and IS users are increasingly driving this transformation.

In addition, systems in organizations are interconnected to form inter-organizational information systems. The complex landscape of IS in current organizations thus renews the importance of analyzing the interplay between IS and organizations from a sociotechnical perspective.

Moreover, the emerging focus—especially in the U.S.—that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science suggests even greater involvement of customers and users on digital transformation in the future.

This year, we especially invite research papers and teaching cases to be submitted on topics related to organizational transformation and IS, business process management, changing workplaces and IS integration, knowledge management and training, end-user computing, and IT consulting and inter-organizational information systems.

We invite contributions related with, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • End-user adoption of Web 2.0 and virtual technologies (with a focus on social media and collaborative value creation in the work place)
  • End-user initiated customization of ICTs
  • End-user and open innovation
  • End-user project management
  • End-user training, support, and knowledge management in organizational systems
  • Innovation and business process management/transformation
  • Understanding and managing IS innovations in complex organizational networks and ecosystems
  • Integrating and engaging users beyond organization boundaries (e.g. crowdsourcing and open innovation)
  • Integrating technology into the workplace (with a focus on managing “bring your own device,” integrating mobile devices, organizational routines, work processes, and improving work processes and employee performance)

Mini-tracks:

  1. Mini-Track 1: Digital Service Innovation Across Boundaries (Jens Poeppelbuss, Lars-Olof Johansson, Lauri Wessel)
  2. Mini-Track 2: Innovation and Business Process Management (Frank Ulbrich)
  3. Mini-Track 3: IT Consulting and Organizational Transformation (Paul Drews, Andreas Drechsler)
  4. Mini-Track 4: Knowledge Management in an Age of Cloud Computing and Consumer Engagement (Elizabeth A. Regan)
  5. Mini-Track 5: Organizational Transformation in General (João Porto de Albuquerque, Paul Drews, Frank Ulbrich)
  6. Mini-Track 6: Shadow IT: Threat or Opportunity? (Markus Westner, Christopher Rentrop, Nils Urbach)

AMCIS 2016 SIGOSRA Track

Track Chairs
Frank Ulbrich, University of the Fraser Valley, Canada
Joao Porto de Albuquerque, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil

The SIG-OSRA track focuses on advancing research and application of information and communication technologies in the end-user environment to support work processes, foster innovation, improve employee performance, and enhance overall organizational effectiveness in direct support of goals and strategies.

This year we invite research papers and teaching cases on topics related to integrating information and communication technologies in the workplace including leveraging end-user innovation, developing end-user oriented apps, managing business process, training and supporting end-users, managing knowledge, and coping with end-user technology adoption, assimilation, and use.

The track is open to all types of research. Best papers from the mini-tracks will be considered for submission to the Information Technology, Learning, and Performance Journal (ITLPJ).

We invite contributions related with, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • End-user adoption of Web 2.0 and virtual technologies (with a focus on social media and collaborative value creation in the work place)
