Our goal

The meaning and the objective of information systems is changing. While in the past the primary challenge was to structure information, today organisations manage information available within and across their boundaries to create value. Knowing how to use fluid, unstructured, and changing information through the interplay of cooperation and leadership is essential for organizations to create their unique ability to innovate.

The chair for “Information Systems I – Innovation and Value Creation” focuses on using innovation to foster competitiveness of organisations. We aim to analyze, explain, and develop a systematic understanding on the topic of “Innovation Support Systems” and use our expertise to design, pilot, and evaluate systems that support innovation, cooperation, and leadership in organisations and their markets.

Organizational Level

Innovation is a process – not a single event. How can the innovation process be managed? Can it be managed at all? Is it better to offer an “innovation bubble” instead of a structured innovation process?

How can external actors be integrated into organizational innovation and value creation processes? How can information out of data resources and cyber physical systems be used in order to leverage new value creation potentials among various organizational stakeholders?

Team Level

How do virtual teams search for new ideas? What is the value of virtual teams in modern companies and how can they be managed? Jump off other people’s ideas or make your voice heard: what is it that leaders of successful innovative teams do or don’t do?

Technology Level

How can new media, Industry 4.0 and Big Data technologies be applied for innovative procedures of value creation? The list of various technologies is endless with Web 2.0, Internet of Things, 3D Printing etc. How does an organization ensure that its use of technology goes hand in hand with its innovation strategy? What opportunities will arise from their usage in the future?
