Product Lifecycle Management

October 24th, 2017

Visit by Frantz Rowe, Uni. Nantes, and research seminar entitled Use of Qualitative Comparative Analysis for Product Lifecycle Management

Nowadays IT is commonly used to support Co-Development with suppliers. Its use should ideally limit misunderstandings related to sticky knowledge (i.e. sticky glitches). This research investigates configurations of resources such as Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system and boundary spanners when supplier responsibility and project novelty vary. Using fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) this paper shows that, for limiting sticky glitches, the use of PLM often has to be combined with human mediation of a boundary spanner. However, in projects where the supplier responsibility and project novelty are limited, the use of PLM systems can be sufficient for limiting sticky glitches. This paper reveals both a causal complexity effect of resources and conditions, and a causal asymmetry effect of boundary spanner participation on sticky glitches. The research also highlights the significance of supplier responsibility and contributes to a better understanding of PLM system’s role in managing co-development.

Evaluation Methods for IS Artifacts

October 10th, 2017

Research seminar by Isabelle comyn-Wattiau at HEC Lausanne

Artifacts, such as software systems, pervade organizations and society. In the field of information systems (IS) they form the core of research. The evaluation of IS artifacts thus represents a major issue. Although IS research paradigms are increasingly intertwined, building and evaluating artifacts has traditionally been the purview of design science research (DSR). DSR in IS has not reached maturity yet. This is particularly true of artifact evaluation.

Les «success stories» entrepreneuriales nous fascinent, nous font rêver jusqu’à nous sembler trop belles et inimitables. Sauf qu’elles ne sont que la partie émergée de l’iceberg. Lorsqu’on s’intéresse de plus près aux épopées réalisées par ces grands entrepreneurs, on se rend compte que le chemin vers la réussite est certes long et sinueux mais bel et bien à la portée de tous.
