“Design Science Research Methodology”

This workshop aims at presenting and reflecting several recent advancements of DSR methodology. After an introduction and discussion of backgrounds and ambitions, selected aspects will be presented and discussed:

  • Utilizing, producing, and contributing design knowledge in DSR Projects
  • Knowledge accumulation and evolution in and across DSR projects
  • Design Science Research proficiencies
  • DSR Outcome Typology

Presenters: Prof Robert Winter, Al Hevner

"Transparency in Design Science Research"

We are excited to announce a workshop on “Transparency in Design Science Research” at DESRIST 2023. The workshop will focus on developing a better understanding and practice of research transparency in DSR.

The workshop is inspired by the MISQ editorial on “Advancing Research Transparency at MIS Quarterly: A Pluralistic Approach”. The workshop aims to address the lack of tools available to conduct research transparency in the community.

The organizers have previously hosted a successful open community workshop on tools support in DSR and are looking forward to building on that success at DESRIST 2023.

We hope you will join us for this exciting workshop.

Presenters: Prof Jan vom Brocke and Alexander Mädche

" Best Practices and Challenges in DSR Education"

Students and doctoral candidates in Information Systems (IS) are repeatedly confront-ed with the task of implementing theoretical concepts in practice and evaluating them with users during their studies or doctoral work. In doing so, they often lack the methodological skill set. This is exactly where Design Science Research (DSR) pro-vides support.

DSR offers an important paradigm for conducting applicable and rigorous research about real-world design problems. DSR aims to generate prescriptive knowledge about the design of IS artifacts, such as software, methods, models, or concepts. DSR is a promising methodology that intends to generate knowledge on the design of innovative solutions to real-world problems. As such, DSR is specifically useful in contributing to the solution of societally and practically relevant challenges.
At the same time, matured methodological foundations are available today, specifically supporting publishing DSR research both at conferences and top-tier journals. DSR has become a permanent teaching component in many undergraduate and Ph.D. programs. The variety of materials, courses, and papers make it difficult to select high-quality materials. In addition, there is the challenge of implementing these materials practically and in relation to one’s own project. Thus, there is a lack of a uniform concept and a DSR curriculum.

To date, there is a lack of a tool that bundles high-quality materials on the application and implementation of DSR. Students and researchers lack guidance in selecting high-quality teaching materials. There is also a lack of a channel to consume and disseminate knowledge from experienced DSR researchers.

This workshop provides a forum for discussing research related to teaching DSR. We aim to enable researchers and iconic authors to exchange their experience and knowledge.

Presenters:  Prof. Jan Marco Leimeister, Prof. Tuure Tuunanen, Prof. Jan vom Brocke, Gregor Kipping, and Ernestine Dickhaut.
