    Process Improvement Framework Evaluation2010Inngår i: 2010 International Conference on Management Science and Engineering, ICMSE 2010, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2010, s. 319-326Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes and evaluates frameworks used in the IT and business domain. The purpose has been to discuss the characteristics, weaknesses and strengths of the frameworks to illuminate how companies can benefit from using them in synergy. Specific strengths within a specific framework such as maturity models and improvement programs have been identified. Many organizations today also use several different frameworks with partly the same content. Therefore, paper concludes by advocating for cooperation between functions using different frameworks based on the similarities identified within this paper to avoid creation of isolated framework islands. To be able to adopt a holistic approach and improve the entire business at an organization it is necessary to develop common methods for similar actions.

    Factors Affecting Successful Project Management of Technology-Intense Projects2010Inngår i: PICMET '10 - Portland International Center for Management of Engineering and Technology, Proceedings - Technology Management for Global Economic Growth, New York: IEEE , 2010, s. 1538-1543Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, engineering and other technology intense businesses are increasingly carried out in project form. This allows better use of scarce resources, a simplified decision-making process as well as specific organization forms being tailored to the task at hand. However, despite these advantages, complex industrial projects often fail in the sense that budgets, time-frames and customer requirements are not met. Organizations also spend lots of money on introducing project models and certifying their project managers. Are these actions really efficient, i.e. do they lead to improved management of projects? The aim of this article is to describe the impact of (i) use of project model, (ii) project manager certification, and (iii) size of organization on ( a) employment of risk analysis, (b) existence of project sponsor, ( c) existence of steering committee, and (d) existence of project manager task description, respectively. This paper presents correlations derived from N=59 semi-structured interviews with project managers of technology centered projects from several countries. Two statistically significant relations were found through a correlation analysis: between the use of a project models and the existence of steering committee and between the use of a project model and the existence of a project manager task description.

    Evaluating IT benefits through modeling the organization2007Inngår i: Proceedings Of The European Conference On Information Management And Evaluation / [ed] Remenyi, D, 2007, s. 209-219Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Large information technology (IT) investments in an industrial context are made with the incentive that they will lead to monetary benefits for the organization. Earlier research has shown that these benefits are not easy to measure when evaluating the investment, and they may not always have been realized by the time the evaluation is taking place. Organizations have often identified business specific, intermediary goals that are not quantifiable in them selves but believed to lead to monetary benefits eventually. These qualitative business goals, such as higher employee satisfaction or better information for decision making etc, need to be part of the evaluation of IT to give a more complete evaluation of the IT investment. This paper suggests a quantitative method of evaluating IT investments by modeling the organizational changes new IT systems bring and the intermediary, business specific goals that are affected. The modeling language is based on a metamodel. The constructs of the metamodel and how to use them for tracing changes in business value will be explained. Since different kind of organizations have different goals and needs, the modeling language has to be adapted to suit the specific organization and its goals, and this paper presents how it could be defined for one organization. The method has been used to evaluate an IT investment to support the maintenance management process at a Swedish nuclear power plant. The general method and modeling language used for modeling are presented, and then adjusted to suit the organization of interest.

    Identifying IT impacts on organizational structure and business value2008Inngår i: Proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Business/IT Alignment and Interoperability, 2008, Vol. 344, s. 44-57Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a framework for analysis of how IT systems add business value by causally affecting the structuring of organizations. To aid our understanding of IT benefits related to organizational structure, we put the well established theory of organizational behavior developed by Mintzberg to use. Combining Mintzberg with more recent research on the business value of IT, the result is a qualitative multi-disciplinary theoretical framework that shows which business values are affected by IT in relation to the organizational structure. This framework can be used to analyze what kind of IT system should be used by an organization with a given structure to maximize its business value.

    Improving the Value Assessment of IT Investments: A Case Study2009Inngår i: PROCEEDINGS OF PICMET: 09TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT IN THE AGE OF FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE / [ed] Kocaoglu DF; Anderson TR; Daim TU; Jetter A; Weber CM, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2009, s. 3083-3091Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A recent survey showed that 90 % of the studied companies claimed that they have full control of their IT-costs but less than 10 % have the same control of the value the IT adds. Even though the Figures can be questioned they show of a large uncertainty within the companies regarding IT value. The lack of processes and methods to support follow up of the investments lead to that companies fail to perceive if the benefits are realized or not. In order to take smarter investment decisions, companies must have better control of their investments through a proper evaluation of benefits. This work presents a framework that describes a method and suggested tools of how the business values of an IT investment can be assessed within a company. The framework combines existing methods for practitioners within the area of investment evaluation together with research findings. In a case study a gap analysis were performed between five different IT projects of different sizes and the framework. The case study show in which areas the projects fail in their value assessment work.

    Analyzing IT Impact on Organizational Structure: A Case Study2009Inngår i: PROCEEDINGS OF PICMET 09: TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT IN THE AGE OF FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2009, s. 3113-3126Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Each year companies spend millions of dollars on IT investments hoping they will lead to higher profits. There are many methods for analyzing what these investments actually bring back to the companies, but unfortunately they are not stringent enough to make the analysis repeatable. This means that different investments cannot be compared to each other. The management paradigm of Enterprise Architecture (EA) is commonly used to structure a company from a holistic perspective. In this paper, an EA framework for assessing IT-systems' impact on an organization's business value through changes in its structure is validated. The foundation of the framework is a Bayesian inference engine allowing quantified analysis. For practical usage, this analysis framework is also expressed through modeling the organization with a metamodel. Together they form a structured method for quantitative analysis of the IT impact on organizations. An IT system for maintenance management within a European electric power utility has been used as a case study to validate the method. The organization and IT support have been modeled using the proposed metamodel and thereafter analyzed with the Bayesian network. The study has been conducted using guided interviews and a survey. The results from this study of how the business value has been influenced are compared to the user's perceptions on how the business values have changed are also presented in this paper.

    Abstract [en]

    The impact IT systems have on organizations is widely debated, both in academia and industry. This paper describes a quantitative framework for analyzing organizational impact from IT systems. The framework consists of an abstract model that is a metamodel suitable for expressing organizational structure incorporated with an extended influence diagram for analysis. The purpose is to create enterprise architecture (EA) models that can be used for analysis of the enterprise. The framework has been validated through a case study where the framework has been used to analyze the changes in organizational structure after the introduction of an IT system.

    Enterprise architecture: A framework supporting organizational performance analysis2009Inngår i: IET Conference Publications: Issue 550 CP, 2009, Prague, 2009, nr 550 CPKonferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprise Architecture is a model-based approach to business-oriented IT management. To promote good IT decision making, an enterprise architecture framework needs to explicate what kind of analyses it supports. It is desirable to create enterprise architecture models based on metamodels that support well-defined analyses. In this paper we use enterprise models to analyze the performance of the maintenance organization. A set of performance indicators from the area is presented in the shape of an extended influence diagram. An example illustrates that the theory-based metamodel does support organizational performance analysis.

    An Enterprise Architecture Based Method Enabling Quantified Analysis of IT Support System's Impact on Maintenance Management2009Inngår i: PROCEEDINGS OF PICMET 09: TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT IN THE AGE OF FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2009, s. 3092-3105Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a model based tool enabling holistic management of an enterprise's IT-system portfolio and its relation and support to the business. A domain where the relation between IT-systems and business processes is crucial for cost efficient operation is maintenance of asset dense geographically distributed processes, such as distribution of electric power. Electric power utilities invest a lot of monetary resources in maintenance without having a clear perception of how its management and processes should be optimized. A large proportion of these investments are related to development and integration of IT-systems. The degree of efficiency of these investments runs a risk of being low unless there is a clear understanding of how specific IT system solutions impact the maintenance process. The suggested method provides managerial support for rationalizing decisions concerning IT-systems' support of maintenance management by combining EA with the concept of the Balanced Scorecard. Extended Influence Diagrams (EIDs) are introduced to enable quantitative analysis of how cause and effect between IT-systems and the performance of maintenance processes are related to each other.

    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays IT functions are integrated part of organizations' business. One way to manage this integration is to make sure that both parties use similar words with the same meaning to everybody. A way to achieve this common vocabulary is to share methods and measurements to govern the activities. Unfortunately, many of these methods and frameworks are customized for a specific niche, especially the ones that are related to technology management. The decision of which framework to use is more often a result of culture or standard within the business category than of an analysis of which framework that would be the most beneficial for the company as a whole. This paper describes the process of the Swedish public agency working on the implementation of a common process for business improvement from the three perspectives of project management, quality improvement and enterprise architecture. Using action research within an implementation project at the organization, difficulties during the merging process were identified. The studied project deals with methods for technology management and consequently this is the base for the article.

    Using enterprise architecture to analyse how organisational structure impact motivation and learning2016Inngår i: Enterprise Information Systems, ISSN 1751-7575, E-ISSN 1751-7583, Vol. 10, nr 5, s. 523-562Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    When technology, environment, or strategies change, organisations need to adjust their structures accordingly. These structural changes do not always enhance the organisational performance as intended partly because organisational developers do not understand the consequences of structural changes in performance. This article presents a model-based analysis framework for quantitative analysis of the effect of organisational structure on organisation performance in terms of employee motivation and learning. The model is based on Mintzberg's work on organisational structure. The quantitative analysis is formalised using the Object Constraint Language (OCL) and the Unified Modelling Language (UML) and implemented in an enterprise architecture tool.

    Abstract [en]

    The structure of organizations impact their performances. Here, we present a framework based on enterprise architecture to analyze the impact organization structure has on flexibility and coordination within an organization. The framework incorporates organization structure theories by Henry Mintzberg using the Object Constraint Language (OCL) and the Unified Modeling Language (UML) in the modeling tool Enterprise Architecture Analysis Tool (EAAT). The framework has also been applied on a case study where the suitability of three organizations' structures with regards to flexibility and coordination are analyzed.
