I am passionate about the managerial and societal oportunities and challenges related to modern information technology. I am particularly interested in understanding dynamics over time. Therefore, many of my projects take a process-theoretic stance. I explore my interest in IT-related change processes in three broad research areas: 

  • Managing Digital Transformation Processes: Platform Ecosystems / Management of Large-Scale System Implementation Projects / Management of AI projects
  • Governnace Dynamics in Software Development: Dynamics of Contracts & Controls / Managing Pardoxes & Contradictions
  • Digital collaboration: Prototype Use / Distributed Agile Software Development
