Dr. Youngjin Yoo was recently awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to study how organizations working on design projects virtualize their work using a mix of virtual and physical elements. The $127,260 award is titled Collaborative Research: Virtualization of work capabilities in project based organizations.
As part of the project, Professor Yoo will conduct longitudinal analysis of four organizations (Intel, Parker Hannifin, Mortenson Construction, and Ford) through interviews, surveys, and observations. Using the data, he will develop a new notation that captures how virtual and physical elements are intermixed in forming design practices in these organizations and further show how those these practices evolve over time.
Paul Pavlou was ranked in the top five of researchers in information systems worldwide based on an analysis of publications in the top 3 information systems journals (Management Information Systems Quarterly (MISQ), Information Systems Research (ISR), and Journal of Management Information Systems (JMIS)).
