New Doctor at Viktoria Institute

22 September, 2012 - 17:18

Friday September 21 Fredrik Svahn successfully defended
his thesis "Digital Product Innovation: Building Generative Capability through
Architectural Frames". Our new doctor has studied how accelerating digitization
of cars and trucks change innovation practices in the automotive industry. A
key argument in Fredrik’s thesis is that digital products have to be
architected for generativity, not only producibility.

For further readings we refer to the thesis, a press release from Umeå University, and Fredrik’s
publication list

The thesis was
defended at the department of Informatics, Umeå University. Opponent was Prof. Sandeep
Purao, College of Information Sciences and Technology, Penn State University,
