Slide 1

IS Research Contributing? Suggestions for Process and ERP Research Some Data, Thoughts, Directions & Ideals Varun Grover William S. Lee (Duke Energy) Distinguished Professor of IS Department of Management College of Business & Behavioral Sciences

Slide 2

FRAMING CONTRIBUTION We make a commitment if… .. We have confidence in ourselves Others listen to what we say We make novel information Our insight is valuable

Slide 3

Do We Believe in Ourselves? Research and teaching method in Information Systems is fundamentally worried with the comprehension and progression of "learning in the advancement, administration and utilization of data innovation to enhance hierarchical execution" (Mission of the AIS). Authoritative data framework, its advancement (displaying), administration and vital utilize, and how it is tied information, procedures, and choices information and data frameworks, their improvement (demonstrating), administration and methodology, and how they are identified with associations, procedures, choices and clients

Slide 4

Co-Citation Analysis of 70 creators and Clusters in their Research

Slide 5

The Good There is consistency between what we say we are and what we do IT as the impetus – changes the issues we inquire about – however our natural center continues as before We are a divided adhocracy – working inside our definitional limits with integrators at work The Bad is a frail worldview field We differ on significance of marvels, strategies, hypotheses… even philosophical suspicions Adverse Consequences

Slide 6

We Make a Contribution if… .. We Believe in Ourselves Possible Directions Multi-hypothetical Perspectives (think Supra-added substance) Positive Affective Tone (pessimism breeds cynicism) Celebrate Success (Institutional Responsibility) Provide Solutions (Community Responsibility) Act as a Steward (Individual Responsibility)

Slide 7

Do Others Listen to What We Say? Does IS Listen? References in IS Journals Trend: p<0.05

Slide 8

Sociometric Analysis Of Work Points and Reference Points Do Others Listen? quantitative examination of more than 72,600 references spread crosswise over 1406 IS articles in 16 diaries over the period 1990-2004 Top IS Journals contrast well with top business diaries in "Effect Factor" Ratings

Slide 9

The Good is starting to contribute back to Disciplines (OS, MS, CS) Impact Factor Compares Well IS research is extending – building its total convention The Bad IS has far to go for more settled controls like MKG and ECN IS still does not have the clout of set up orders in institutional structures

Slide 10

We Make a Contribution if… .. Others Listen to What We Say Possible Directions Cross Disciplinary Journal Alliances (What makes an article at the IS Workpoint be Cited at different Workpoints) Value Created in IS = f (degree of significance X degree of hypothesis reconstitution X aggregate custom inside a nomological organize)

Slide 11

Do We Create Unique Knowledge? IS Density: Ratio of IS Constructs to Total No of Constructs Nomological Density: Ratio of IS-IS connections to Total No of Relationships

Slide 12

The Good is increasing some uniqueness in its develops The Bad No genuine indigenous hypothesis in IS Theory on a platform (hard to characterize)

Slide 13

We Make a Contribution if… .. We Create Unique Knowledge Nurture More Innovative Theory Building Open Sea Theorizing (instead of just shut circle from reference disciplines or hypothetical amusements) Value Without Theory as a Means Not an End (Results Can Precede Theory; We require scholars and empiricists)

Slide 14

Is Our Knowledge is Useful? Importance: Comparison of themes in scholastic research to examination of points found in professional writing Results: Very couple of huge relationships between's expert positioning of subjects in a year with scholarly positioning of research frequency – even in the wake of representing slack impacts.

Slide 15

We Make a Contribution if… .. Our Knowledge is (Perceived) as Useful The Problem Practitioner Purists IMPACT RESEARCH Rigor Gap Academic Purists R E L E V A N C E Bridge BOTH Relevance and Rigor Gaps Relevance Gap Moderation: The Best Policy? No Credibility (Practitioner Investment) RIGOR (Academic Investment)

Slide 16

OVERALL SUMMARY: We make a commitment if… .. We put stock in ourselves Good consistency, intrinsic center & integrators at work BUT frail worldview NEED supra-added substance speculations and positive full of feeling tone Others listen to what we say We are setting up a total custom, contributing back to a few teaches, and having an effect consider BUT we just take from different controls and we need institutional clout NEED cross disciplinary diary organizations together and an unmistakable research esteem recommendation We make one of a kind learning We are expanding uniqueness of our builds BUT we don't have our own particular hypotheses and we hone shut hypothetical circles NEED more imaginative hypothesis & solid results Our insight is helpful We don't appear to contribute toward practice in spite of the accentuation on investigating pragmatic issues NEED to connect both the significance AND meticulousness crevice

Slide 17

Creating Contributions (one of a kind and helpful information) in Process/ERP Research ERP/Process Research is Fundamental to IS Implementation IS Project Management IT Value IT Adoption, Use & Impact Technical Issues (undertaking demonstrating, programming setup, framework mix) … .and more It manages… .. … ..and is developing with new energizing inquiries … it is a developing zone of request – with huge open doors for research at all levels (individual, authoritative, between hierarchical, national, worldwide, and so forth.) utilizing an assorted qualities of techniques and speculations. A Travelog Some Directions

Slide 18

My Travelog of IT-Process Research Learning Point : BPR requires an association wide incorporated approach where methodology, IT, and a creative domain should be adjusted . Acknowledgment and consistent evaluation of process change is sustained through a creative domain. System IT inventive environment administration of process change (inductive) Learning Point : Cross-practical and cross-hierarchical undertakings advantage from an arrangement of business procedure with IT. Minimal effort situated organizations streamline cross useful procedures and, arrangement of IT methodology with the cost introduction makes a difference. What sort of methodology? (exact) Learning Point : IT can decrease physical coupling and increment data coupling in procedures. These parallel-community forms have suggestions for structure, administration and individuals in dynamic process situated undertakings. What sort of IT? Learning Point : Business reengineering might be fruitful if went with the administration of progress, individuals and the venture . IT competency is not instrumental for achievement; in any case, achievement requires simultaneous changes in an expansiveness of natural and administrative facilitators . What sort of progress, process & innovation administration? (theoretical, experimental – overview, case) Learning Point : Use of expert based approachs to record existing procedures does not yield equivalent results. Innovation administration must be a piece of a more extensive change program keeping in mind the end goal to have an impact. Learning Point : Organic structures that encourage development and acknowledgment of the more extensive key part of IS are essential for both preparation for reengineering and its effective execution. What sort of creative environment? (theoretical, observational)

Slide 19

Increasing Contribution of IT-Process Research Some Directions: IT-Process Management Research Gap between process administration and IT (What makes a procedure situated endeavor?) Linking procedure and IT administration Process measurements and data design IT-Process Fit (structuration)

Slide 20

Some Directions: IT-Process Value Research Processes that fabricate and exchange computerized abilities (Business driven execution abilities – dexterity, investigation, abuse, absorptive limit)

Slide 21

Some Directions: IT-Process Implementation Research Management components (duty, beat mgmt bolster, change mgmt, instruction, champion, group determination) Process Factors (documentation, BPR, arrangement) Technology Factors (equipment, programming, information structures, coordination) People Factors (preparing, aptitudes) Project Factors (extend administration, extend staging, extend administration) Knowledge Factors (learning administration, specialists, information exchange) Richer treatment of execution Stakeholder examination e.g., adjustment to ERP at the client level (sociological), seller conditions Emergent process models (e.g., redesigns)

Slide 22

Broad Closing Comments on IS Research For the IS train to make a commitment we have to put stock in our identity and what we do; influence our differing qualities – via scanning for approaches to value the lavishness of our wonders from assorted viewpoints; be interested in crisp, free estimating without empirics and solid empirics without hypothesis; value that our convenience likewise lies in imparting the estimation of our thoroughness; and perceive that our difficulties are no more prominent than other field – in the event that we can deal with them helpfully and with good faith
