We are extremely pleased to announce that Ann has joined the IIK at the ESADE Business School as visiting professor.
Ann Majchrzak is Professor of Information Systems, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California. She holds a PhD in Social Psychology from UCLA, and is Fellow of the Association for Information Systems 2012. Her general research interests are in understanding how IS affordances can support worker agility and ingenuity within collaborative settings, with a special interest in how IS can give voice to the disenchanted and disenfranchised. This has led to research on the role of IS in innovative problem-solving in distributed teams; knowledge-sharing and creation in high-risk, volatile, and emergent contexts; enterprise knowledge co-creation among dispersed strangers; online collaborative innovation, and, most recently, innovative collaborative co-creation in open innovation and crowdsourcing.
