    Adopting Information Systems in a Small Company: A Longitudinal Study2016In: Journal of Applied Economics and Business Research, ISSN 1927-033X, E-ISSN 1927-033X, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 269-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For some time there has been an increase in adoption of enterprise systems by small companies. With welldocumented potential benefits, there are a lot of reasons to adopt them. In this study however the choice to adopt smaller pieces of information systems by a small organization is investigated to provide a counter example to the integrated-solution literature. With the intention to adopt an enterprise system at the beginning, the case provides a dynamic story of a small organization and how various factors impacted on the intention and resulted in an assemblage of information systems instead. By adoption the technology-organisation-environment framework and a single case study design, the case indicates that in addition to the oft-cited factors such as organisational size and IT readiness, social norms and the characteristics of a central individual, such as the owner, play a prominent role in information systems adoption, and highlights how these factors are connected to each other.

    Adopting Information Systems Perspectives from Small Organizations2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Why do organizations adopt information systems? Is it just because of financial reasons, of concerns for efficiency? Or is it due to external pressures, such as competitor pressure, that an organization adopts an information system?

    And, how does the adoption take place? Is it a linear process, or is the process one of  conflicts? Does a specific person govern this process, or do we have multiple parties involved? What happens if these conflicts occur among those involved? How does the organization move on and achieve a successful information system adoption?

    By investigating two organizations, one international academic journal and one South American manufacturing company, this thesis aims to investigate the whys and hows of information system adoption, and aims to contribute to the discourse on information system adoptions in small organizations – an often underrepresented segment in information system adoption literature.

    By adopting different theoretical lenses throughout the five research papers included, this body of work suggests that even when seemingly simple, information system adoptions can become rather complex. The cases reveal that the role of information systems and issues related to information system adoptions are often not well thought-out in the early days of the organization. The actors’ understandings of adoption and consequences mature and the information systems become more intertwined.

    Common use of stakeholder theory introduces general stakeholders and their interaction with the focal organization. The cases reveal that the adoption process involves multiple actors, even within what would initially appear as a stakeholder, and that those actors can be in conflict with each other. These conflicts often lead to negotiations, and the cases reveal that these negotiations are opportunities of learning; the actors engage with the information system and with each other, gaining new knowledge about the issues at hand.

    The dissertation argues that there are various social worlds in information system adoptions, and various factors – ranging from organizational structure to social norms – that often affect why and how the organization undergoes an adoption process. The multiple power relations and divergent interests of stakeholders in these adoption processes, and how information systems affect other parts of the organization, reinforce the need for a well thought-out, flexible and reflexive approach to information system adoptions.

    Constructing an open source ERP sales pitch - In search for interpretative repertoires2014In: Proceedings of the 8th Mediterranean Conference on Information Systems, Verona, Italy, September 03-05, 2014 / [ed] Mola, L. Carugati, A. Kokkinaki, A. Pouloudi, N., 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Open source enterprise resource planning (OS-ERP) systems have been gaining recognition in the last few years. However while the research has focused on the implementation phase of OS-ERP systems, there is scant research done on the adoption process of such systems. This paper looks at an early paper on an OS-ERP system, targeting both practitioners and researchers, to identify the repertoires used to argue for the adoption of the said system. To achieve this aim the paper is evaluated by using a strain of discourse analysis - interpretative repertoires. Three distinct repertoires are identified that are used to argue for the unique value gained by adopting the OS-ERP in question, by both highlighting positive aspects of the system, as well as alluding the pitfalls of other systems. These repertoires are also mapped to the existing literature on diffusion of innovations and resource based view to highlight how the existing ideas are reformulated in the identified repertoires.

    EMU: An evaluation of the asmmetric shock problem2011In: Marmara Journal of European Studies, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 73-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) has a unique set up: while the monetary policy is centralised at the Union-level, the fiscal policies are left to the member states within the limitations of the Stability and Growth Pact. The Commission argues that within time EMU would constitute an optimum currency area, and further centralisation of fiscal policies, thus, is not needed. Fiscal federalism literature, on the other hand argues that stabilisation functions should be centralised, since no individual would be able to deal with an asymmetric shock without harming another member. Therefore the fiscal policy centralisation should accompany the monetary centralisation.

    This study tries to assess whether the EMU has become more symmetric over time. By proposing a centralised insurance against asymmetric shock, and linking the trend of the stabilisation provided by the insurance scheme to the ability of EMU to absorb asymmetric shocks, the results of the study suggests that EMU has become more symmetric over time.

    Learning by negotiation – Implementing a journal management system2015In: / [ed] Lambrinoudakis, K., Morabito, V., Themistocleous, M., 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how an international academic journal invests in an information system. Following the criticism that learning in an organisation is not conflict free the study sketches the decision making around the information system as a series of negotiations. The case shows that during these negotiations, the information system played the role of a boundary object that resulted in the editorial team understanding the system in different ways than previously. These negotiations paved the way for learning in the organisation, with the information system highlighting differences among the participants involved with the journal.

    Learning by Negotiation: Stake and Salience in Implementing a Journal Management System2017In: Financial Environment and Business Development, Springer, 2017, p. 369-383Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research investigates how an international academic journal implements a new journal management system to overcome their knowledge management issues. By adopting a case study approach, the stakeholders involved within the project are identified, and their salience for the organization is mapped. By providing an account of how these stakeholders negotiated each other, the case highlights how these negotiations are learning processes, showing that learning process is not a conflict-free process. The case also shows that the stakeholder salience changes throughout the project, thus raising the importance of viewing these negotiations as learning platforms rather than just arenas of power struggles, to use them as opportunities to identify possible future stakeholders.

    Repertoires of publishing: A talk with PhD students2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decades, public universities and research institutions are faced with more scrutiny than before, with the self-regulation and governance of the researchers gaining more prevalence. Coupled with the accountability arguments and the use of rankings as quality measures, the university environment exerts different pressures upon scholars. This study explores how the PhD students cope with such pressures, by analysing how they justify their publishing choices. Their accounts are analysed by employing a strain of discourse analysis, namely interpretative repertoires, and analyse how through the use of these repertoires, the institutional pressures are managed and the discourses are opposed and reproduced.

    Reshaping The Stakeholder Model: Insights From Negotiated Order Theory2016In: Research Papers, Association for Information Systems, 2016, article id 26Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The need to complement the existing stakeholder theory with more dynamic perspectives has been acknowledged for some time. This article uses the insight from negotiated order theory to provide a more actor oriented and dynamic illustration of the stakeholder understanding by adapting the classic Freeman model, strengthening its pedagogical value. Adopting a hermeneutic approach, the model is built by drawing from the extant literature and applied in a case to highlight how particularities of the case can be presented differently. By providing some factors that influence the dynamic process and how the actors affected the negotiations, the model presents the dynamism in stakeholder management and the temporality of the situation, as well as how the roles the individuals play within stakeholder management should be kept in focus while conducting a stakeholder analysis.

    Talking to the students: Repertoires of a syllabus2014In: Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference Social Communication in the Real and Virtual World / [ed] Kowal, J.; Kuzio, A.; Wawrzak-Chodaczek, M., University of Wrocław, Poland; Linköping University, Sweden; College of Management "Edukacja" Wrocław, Poland , 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    • Purpose: The aim of this paper is to identify the repertoires that the teachers draw from when writing a course syllabus.

    • Design/Methodology: To achieve this a syllabus of a course is scrutinised by using discourse analysis, namely interpretative repertoires.

    • Results: Two distinct repertoires are identified which the teacher draw from. By employing these repertoires the opposing demands from the students and regulatory bodies as well as the traditional role of the teacher, the teachers maintain their position. By using language the teachers are able to maintain the traditional roles of teacher and student, thus reinforce the existing system.

    • Limitations: The study uses only one syllabus as its data, thus limiting the potential generalizability of the findings.

    • Research/Practical Implications: Results show how the teachers use rather paradoxical repertoires to maintain their position and reinforce the existing system.

    • Originality/Value: The results show that even on a syllabus the teachers have to maintain their position when confronted with demands from students and regulatory bodies, and employ paradoxical repertoires to do so.

    Trying to Go Open: Knowledge Management in an Academic Journal2017In: Open Source Solutions for Knowledge Management and Technological Ecosystems / [ed] Francisco J. Garcia-Peñalvo and Alicia García-Holgado, Hershey, PA, USA: IGI Global, 2017, p. 222-250Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Theoretically, open source solutions are a good match with the resource scarce organization such as a young academic journal to make the publication process and the knowledge shared explicit to the participants in the system. This paper uses a case study approach to investigate how the decision to have such a system depends on a myriad of factors, and tracks how the editorial team decided to adopt an open source journal management system for their knowledge management issues. The study argues that these components should not be taken in isolation by showing how the previous decisions can become a hindrance as these components change over time. The results show that some factors, though initially thought to be unimportant, can become major forces as the journal matures, and a more holistic approach could help to side-step the problems faced.
