Digitalisation transform the public sector. Organisations must develop capabilities to control development and manage the result. In close collaboration with organisations, I seek practical knowledge about sustainable governance of digital resources.

Information systems and digitalisation

Digitalisation can open many opportunities within organisations and many consider it to be a key to innovation, increased efficiency, simplification and organisational development. If this process is to be sustainable, we must gain knowledge of how to govern and maintainour digital resources.

ResearchShow/Hide content

My research deals with how digital resources are handled in organisations from a governance perspective.

To be more specific, I study how to organise in order to achieve this. My doctoral project aims to increase understanding of what happens when new models for governance of digital resources are introduced. The study follows two cases whereportfolio management of digital resources is introduced in Swedish public sector organisations. is the results of my project are expected to increase our understanding of the introduction of governance models and the opportunities, challenges and effects that arise when models meet reality.

I am interested in how we can utilise the possibilities of digitalisation as a strategic asset in organisations. Research into information systems demonstrate the effectiveness of approaching this challenge from different perspectives to shed light on the interaction between people, technology and organisations.
