research interest

  • Main interests: CSCW, HCI, learning and process management with a focus on supporting cooperative work by organizational procedures and IT tools, in application fields such as workplace support and learning, Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) and service engineering/design for the elderly, collaborative creation and sustainment of knowledge and collaborative learning as well as Bottom-up business process management. Domains of my particular interest are:
    • Learning and cooperation support at workplaces
    • Design of interaction means for different user groups, e.g. for interaction with viszualizations and process models
    • The convergence of the digital and real world, e.g. in the usage of mobile technology
    • Participation and active contribution of non-experts to central business processes such process management

PhD thesis

My PhD thesis was concerned with the support of process model usage and development by knowledge management. Other fields of interest include phenomena of web 2.0 – especially social tagging systems -, semantic web, socio-technical system design, the transistion from personal to group information management and service process design and analysis. To get an impression of my interests, see my links and tags on Bibsonomy (http://www NULL.bibsonomy NULL.org/user/michael) Titel: “Knowledge Management Support for the Development and Usage of Process Models as Artefacts for Knowledge Transfer” Only available in German (http://www NULL.imtm-iaw NULL.rub NULL.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/diss_mp NULL.png) Nowadays, process maps are being used by many companies for the documentation of processes, for their analysis, their optimization and implementation. Therefore, process maps contain relevant knowledge for organizations. However, practice shows that this knowledge is distributed unequally: While only a few people in organizations use process maps, many others are not aware of them or do not use them. The reason for this problem can be found in the lack of support for process maps by organizational knowledge management systems (KMS). These tools mainly support textual content. Therefore, knowledge being in principle available in organization is not used to full extent or even gets lost. Facing this problem, this thesis describes and implements potential solutions for the usage and support of process maps as content units of knowledge management. Based on an empirical study, a catalog of seven fields of action containing a total of 37 requirements is derived and implemented in prototypes. The resulting system allows the integration of process maps into KMS content by using social tagging as a means of semantic markup for process maps. Based on this, the system serves as a showcase for functionality supporting the usage of process maps for knowledge transfer. For the first time, this thesis gives a detailed and comprehensive description of problems and potentials of process maps in knowledge management. As part of this description, it described requirements, their implementation and links resulting functionality to organizational processes of knowledge management. Therefore, it contains practical advice for the usage of process maps as a knowledge resource in organizations. Moreover, it extends existing scientific insights into business process management and knowledge management as well as into the usage of process maps by non-experts and the design of cooperation support systems. Die Dissertation ist im EUL-Verlag (http://www NULL.eul-verlag NULL.de/shop/eul/index NULL.php?page=detail&match=LISA_NR2=966B) erschienen.
