Winter school on design science

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Winter School on design science and design thinking in IS, organised by CUSO at Ovronnaz from January 13 to 17th, 2014, with Prof. Jean-Henry Morin, University of Geneva

The objective of this course is to offer PhD students in information systems (IS) and computer science (CS) the methodological foundation of design science research and design thinking … (more)

(chapter 2)

In particular the course will address design science research in information systems from various viewpoints: frameworks, guidelines, theory, processes, evaluation, patterns, ideation and rationale. These design techniques will be used in creative sessions for writing research proposals, drawing scientific posters, and presenting oral slideshows (see the syllabus of the last year course here)

e-business course

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

The objectives of this course are threefold. The first objective is to be able to accurately describe changes in industry structures and situations of business model innovation in general – applied to the example of recent e-business evolutions in particular.

The second objective is to master the design of business models using a design-thinking attitude and adopting the “Managing as designing” paradigm.

The third objective is to explain why and how information systems research can complement its traditional focus on decision making, organizational design, and performance analysis with an additional new focus on the design, selection, and simulation of business models and similar strategic notions.

Information systems course

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

The importance of the service economy is widely recognized. New information technology, specially Internet, the social networks and web 2.0, have redefined the ways of conducting business, providing new e-services, new customer experiences, new work practices, and new business models competing in the global market place. This course provides the participants with an understanding of service design, mainly online-service design.

The course integrates principles suggested by the design thinking, applied to business service design. The course introduces concepts, frameworks, and tools for designing new “front stage” services, “back stage” processes, and business models. Learning will be accomplished through lectures, research, case studies, and group co-design sessions.

Design Science & Design Thinking

Monday, March 4th, 2013

course in the Doctoral Program in Computer Science by CUSO (web), with Jean-Henry Morin, University of Geneva, March-April 2013.

The objective of this course is to offer PhD students in information systems (IS) and computer science (CS) the methodological foundation of design science research and design thinking. Combining theoretical (morning), hands-on (afternoon) sessions and two invited lectures, this course will provide PhD candidates with the required methodological foundation for their research.

(chapter 2)

In particular the course will address design science from various viewpoints: frameworks, paradigms, theory, processes, patterns, evaluation, ideation and rationale. These design techniques will be used in creative ideation workshops, prototyping, scientific literature reading and reviewing, writing research proposals and papers (more).

Design Science Research in IS

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Research seminar for the 2012 CUSO Doctoral Programme (web)

Introduction

The course develops skills needed for conducting design research in information systems. This kind of research aims at designing artefacts such as tools, methods and techniques, that make information systems more effective and efficient. Participants will also acquire skills in writing research proposals and articles that follow the design research paradigm. Upon completion this course, the participants will have a general understanding of the current state and trends in design research in information systems, and be aware of design paradigms, frameworks, theories, methods, patterns, evaluation approaches, and rationales. Furthermore, the participants will be able to use theses design techniques for reviewing and writing research papers.
