ItemUnderstanding how Digital Intelligence Contributes to Digital Creativity and Digital Transformation: A Systematic Literature Review( 2020-01-07)Despite the rising potential of the Digital Intelligence (DI) emerging concept for practitioners, only a few research studies have considered its contribution to the enterprise digital transformation. Due to its novelty, the scope, application domains, and main research themes of DI are still unclear to date. Through a Systematic Literature Review (SLR), we analyzed relevant academic literature and tentatively identified major research areas to facilitate the understanding and study of DI in the digital transformation era. The results have shown that DI is at an early stage of research and investigation. To fill the gap between theory and practice, we have proposed a research agenda of DI with several perspectives.
ItemCreativity Is Connecting Things: The Role of Network Topology in Fostering Collective Creativity in Multi-Participant Asynchronous Online Discussions( 2020-01-07)Creativity derives from the ability to form new meaningful combinations out of available resources. Collective creativity is the product of a collaborative process, consisting of multiple interactions between group members and the shared content, which lead to the emergence of novel shared meanings. This exploratory research addresses the expression of collective creativity in multi-participant asynchronous online discussions, by proposing interactivity and emergence as key features of the collaborative creative process. The ability to connect posts in a non-sequential manner ("cross-linking") is suggested as the basis for the formation of emergent community-structures within the content, which reflect collectively constructed novel combinations. Initial indications for this process are presented by applying a combination of network analysis and qualitative inquiry to data from a multi-participant virtual discussion, held as part of an online academic course. A methodology for extracting emergent themes is described.
ItemCreativity Loading – Please Wait! Investigating the Relationship between Interruption, Mind Wandering and Creativity( 2020-01-07)With the advancement of information technologies, routine tasks are increasingly supported by information systems, which is why ideation and creativity is becoming more and more important. We know from many anecdotes that creative ideas emerge when our mind is wandering instead of being focused on the task at hand. Yet, most information systems that are used for work-related purposes offer only little opportunities for task-unrelated thoughts. In contrast, current literature shows that most information technology is designed to keep our attention. In order to better understand the value of mind wandering, we propose an experimental design that incorporates interruptions that vary in their length with the objective to stimulate episodes of mind wandering and thus positively impact creativity. We provide initial insights on how the experiment should designed and discuss implications for future research.
