Our research

Information Management (IM) covers organization and coordination of the structures, processes, and resources for information use. The field has its genesis in the last century and has evolved through stages corresponding to the integration of digital technologies within and across organizations.

The Linnaeus University IM research group focuses on developing viable models and workflow processes to design, manage, and evaluate sustainable information systems. Projects employ systems models and methodologies to address organizational information and communication needs in all types and sizes of public and private workplaces. Research outcomes recognize that ideal design ensures all system parts advance the purpose(s) of the whole system, through interaction between people and ideas. Increasingly technology-enabled systemic conditions for learning, influences how, when, and why people share and use information.

The research in the IM group includes:

  • Models and techniques for big data analytics and business intelligence
  • Social and organizational perspectives on information security and quality
  • Systems thinking for agile information flows
  • Digital capability for knowledge sharing and exchange in information intensive organizations
  • Participatory action research for change management, implementation and evaluation.
