Abstract Virtual teams face the unique challenge of coordinating their knowledge work across time, space, and people.

Power dynamics in software platform ecosystems

Abstract In software platform ecosystems, the technological and structural peculiarities vest the platform owner with an extremely powerful position that puts any complementor at the mercy of the platform owner’s actions.

Jun 29th, 2021 | By

Abstract The discontinuance of volitional IS (i.e., information systems adopted, used and discontinued at will) has recently attracted remarkable attention from academics and practitioners alike. However, most research to date has been ahistorical. Ignoring the temporal progression can be problematic when the phenomenon under investigation is dynamic and evolving. To balance this, we adopt a
