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,
USA.
