"Accumulating Design Knowledge" published in the Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS)

Design science research is a fundamental paradigm for the information systems discipline. While numerous studies developed design knowledge in the last decades, it is oftentimes questioned whether and how design knowledge relates to theory, whether design knowledge is revisited, and how it accumulates. Published in the flagship Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS), the publication Accumulating Design Knowledge: A Mechanisms-Based Approach provides first empirically-grounded replies. The study by Hannes Rothe (Freie Universität Berlin), Lauri Wessel (University of Bremen), and Ana Paula Barquet (Technical University Berlin) is the first to theorize the process of knowledge accumulation in design science research. It introduces three mechanisms, namely injection, folding, and enhancement, that help explaining different patterns of knowledge creation over time. The study followed three entrepreneurial ventures to derive mechanisms of knowledge accumulation before revisiting two streams of published design science research studies using text mining and information networks.

Managing the Dynamics of Platforms and Ecosystems HICSS Minitrack

As co-chair of this HICSS minitrack, professor Rothe invites you to submit your research until June 15th 2020. We are interested in research that focuses on the “dynamic” aspects of platforms and ecosystems. How do platforms and ecosystems change? What is the nature of their evolution? What are the mechanisms driving evolution? How do platforms and ecosystems adapt to technological, social, economic, or even political changes? How can specific platform and ecosystem actors succeed within these dynamics?
