    Analysis of Discomfort Factors in Smartphone Use
    ( 2019-01-08) Otsuka, Ami ; Fujihara, Yasuhiro ; Murayama, Yuko ; Aoyagi, Tatsuya
    We are facing security threats over the Internet that users are not aware of, such as malware infection as well as unauthorized access. We look into user interfaces which cause discomfort so that users can be more aware of security risks. Despite of our efforts on security protections, risk to encounter dangers is increasing by use of smartphones. This paper reports our research progress on discomfort factors with use of smartphones; we conducted a questionnaire survey and found factors that are supposed to cause discomfort when using smartphones obtained from the results of exploratory factor analysis. Through exploratory factor analysis, we came up with five factors that contribute to the discomfort feeling. In addition, we describe the verification results of the difference for each factor according to smartphone OSs (iOS/Android) and the smartphone usage period.

    Distributed ISD Team Leadership and the Paradox of Cohesion and Conflict
    ( 2019-01-08) McCarthy, Stephen ; O’Raghallaigh, Paidi ; Fitzgerald, Ciara ; Adam, Frédéric
    Distributed ISD projects are often typified by deep-seated differences between team members from diverse organizational and professional backgrounds. Consequently, literature suggests that cohesion is crucial for aligning the efforts of a distributed ISD team; however, a competing body of literature also asserts that conflict is essential for capitalizing on diverse knowledge flows. Team leaders can therefore face a conundrum around how to balance the paradoxical need for both cohesion and conflict. In this paper, we develop a theoretical framework to analyze case study findings from the ‘CDSS project’, a distributed ISD project undertaken in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU). We find evidence that distributed ISD leaders must adopt a ‘paradox mindset’, one which embraces both cohesion and conflict. Based on these findings, we also put forward the concept of ‘leadership intelligence’ which describes the simultaneous enactment of a diverse set of leadership styles for balancing constructive cohesion and conflict.
