Helping regular people understand the life of dyslexic friends/family

Spring 2023

Master

A tool for helping relatives and interested parties to understand life with dyslexia

  • Dyslexia
  • Autism
  • Digital Health
  • Digitization
  • Qualitative Data Collection

Thesis description

The core inspiration for this comes from the games and simulations intended to let typical people experience what it’s like to have autism. An example of these would be Autismity.

Dyslexia is generally treated less severely than for example autism and we already have various tools to aid dyslexic people deal with education and more, so providing a tool, game or simulation for actually experiencing dyslexia is intriguing to me, in part because multiple of my friends happen to have dyslexia themselves. Given that I have autism myself, some of the issues these people struggle with are things I can identify with too..

Optimizing intergroup collaboration

Spring 2022

Candidate

Understanding intergroup leadership from a relational leadership perspective

  • Leadership
  • Intergroup
  • Project
  • Identity
  • Organizing

Thesis description

The theme of the research will be on intergroup leadership with a special focus on the different forms of leadership occurring when two or more groups are made to work together. The setting is optimally found in a pre-merger stage or in an organizational or inter-organizational project. To create a proper understanding, a broad variety of concepts will be utilized such as various understandings of identity work, the ingroup/outgroup trade-off in leadership, and psychological empowerment. This will be done from a relational leadership perspective

With the investigation, I aim to gain a deeper understanding of how to make distinctive groups work better together in a specific setting. By taking the relational leadership perspective, the research allows for inclusion of context-specific factors such as historical experiences, cultural differences/similarities, as well as individual preferences. Together this can help identify forms of leadership in an intergroup work mode that not necessarily derive from the managers/formal leaders.

Deploying MLOps in a live production setup – a demo case study to operationalize machine learning

Spring 2022

Candidate

Deploying MLOps in a live production setup – a demo case study to operationalize machine learning

  • MLOps
  • Data Science
  • Business Strategy
  • Python
  • Machine Learning

Thesis description

Our thesis aims to operationalise a machine learning workflow for a company or department that is interested to deploy a machine learning solution to enhance their work. The theoretical underpinnings of this machine learning workflow (also referred to as MLOps) will be based on materials stemming from different courses – ranging from infrastructural choices (e.g. Microsoft Azure, Databricks, AWS etc.), database choice (e.g. RDMBS vs NoSQL), database design theories, reference architecture and designing and crafting, to mathematical and statistical theories behind the machine learning algorithm that we eventually select for the solution, and other MLOps white papers or conference articles that explain best practices and recommendations.

Current progress (research of start-ups in the space, industry practices and published peer reviewed papers) and monetary constraints has led us to narrow the project scope to operationalising an end-to-end ML pipeline merely using open-source software. Thus the thesis is converging towards “democratising” the deployment of MLOps in an inexpensive and simple manner.

The influence of remote work on work-life balance

Spring 2023

Candidate

How does remote work affect employee’s work life balance, and what does this and ICT’s mean for the border between the professional life and the private life?

  • ICT
  • Remote/hybrid work

  • Professional/private life
  • Covid-19

Thesis description

We wish to examine how remote/hybrid work has influenced employees’ work life balance and has had an impact on the border between the two worlds/spheres, the professional life and the private life. Information and communication technologies (ICT) and communication platforms such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams have helped to enable remote/hybrid work, which may have had an impact on employees’ work life balance among other things, and may have forced the movement from the disciplinary society to the project society. Especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, remote / hybrid work has become widespread.
Remote work may influence employees’ work life balance, the social and cultural norms etc. At the same time, this can affect the border between professional life and private life, where employees may experience that this border is blurred as remote work is becoming more widespread.
Therefore, we wish to examine how remote work affect employee’s work life balance, and what this and ICT’s mean for the border between the professional life and the private life.

Digital health in the pharmaceutical industry

Spring 2022

Master

Create a digital strategy through implementation of a digital platform to support a company’s portofolio

  • Business Development
  • Digital Strategy
  • Innovation
  • Digitization
  • Pharmaceutical

Thesis description

The main goal of the project is to build a strategy for a chosen pharmaceutical company on how to implement a digital platform/app to enhance its existing product portfolio. The pharmaceutical industry has a revenue model, which is highly dependent on the reimbursement agreements with the governments, which only now are, starting to implement reimbursements on digital health solutions. Some countries are exploring this such as Germany (made possible by the German Digital Healthcare Act, DVG) or the UK (through the Innovation and Technology Payment). Furthermore, with the rise of digitalization and a focus on operating businesses ethically, digital health solutions can enable pharmaceutical companies to not only produce and sell a certain product but also, for example, monitor the intake of the medication, following the patient throughout their journey, etc.

Because of, among others, the lacking reimbursement agreements and funding on digital health, the pharmaceutical industry is struggling in creating a successful business model in this area. Focusing on a digital strategy is, however, crucial for the industry’s future perspective as they expect that 5-10 years from now, 32% of the profit to come from this area. They all agree on the relevance, however, do not know how to go about it. One of the problems the companies face is finding the right price of the digital product, they might lack needed capabilities and there can be a low data availability in the area, as it is still a rather unexplored market.

I wish to engage in a collaboration with a company to create a tailored strategy for their specific product portfolio and organization.

Thesis description

Ørsted’s green transformation has been recognized as proven success in transforming its products and services from NOG to renewable. With the EU’s SDG forces and the Danish government’s support socially and financially, Ørsted managed to maintain its legitimacy during the transformation. Their success has inspired more companies in energy sectors to pursue sustainable transformation more aggressively including CIP, Vesta, Ramboll..etc. This research intends to investigate closely Orsted’s and other Danish companies’ legitimacy strategies in application to Asian context where the institutions, social and cultural expectation towards sustainability has not been as developed as they are in Europe.  A strategic framework for exporting the green transformation model will be proposed. The research plans to identify the strategic implementation and actions taken by the firms in the region and evaluate the attainability. The green transformation framework could set a precedent and serve as a model project for other companies and industries who wish to export their SD goal in Asia.

Cyber security risks in the modern organization

Spring 2023

Bachelor

How to handle cyber security risks in a modern organization and the economic consequences hereof

  • Cyber security
  • Information systems
  • Software Engineering
  • IT-consulting
  • IT guidelines

Thesis description

43% of cyber attacks are aimed at small businesses, but only 14% are prepared to defend themselves” [1] is a shocking but important statistic.

As the cyber threat keeps growing, the modern organization needs to be prepared, as ignoring these threats can cause financial and reputational damage. It is simply something that cannot be ignored.

Recent events, such as the Covid-19 outbreak has caused an organizational change in many companies around the world. “Home office” or remote work has become very normal, and both employees and employers are enjoying the benefits. However, this introduces some unanticipated risks and situations.

I am looking to collaborate with a company, preferably an IT-consulting company or a company with many IT-related activities, to explore the potential cyber security risks within the company or at a client. My approach is always tangible, hands-on, and I believe that I can provide value with the background I have. While this is an academic project, I believe that my personal interest in the topic will be a great asset to the partner organization.

The focus will be on the technical part and the economic consequences (damage). The secondary focus will be on the organizational part, i.e. how to handle these risks and make sure that people have an incentive to follow the IT guidelines.

My topic is not final, and it is subject to change. However, this is the direction that I would like to go in. If a company does not necessarily find the topic(s) appealing, I am open for suggestions or modifications – as long as the main topics are IT, economics, and organization.

Co-Creation Practices in Open Innovation

Spring 2022

Bachelor

Is there a cultural influence on co-creation practices between international companies?

  • Open Innovation
  • International
  • Co-Creation
  • Cultural influence
  • Performance

Thesis description

The purpose of this study is to assess if within the open innovation field, cultural differences might influence co-creation practices.

The last couple of decades, Open Innovation (OI) has become an important topic for firms who wish to effectively access flows of knowledge. However, even though OI is of high importance, we found out that it has not received enough attention in the academic literature, especially within Scandinavia. For that reason, this thesis will be primarily focused on Open Innovation in Scandinavia and we hope it will contribute to more research into this increasingly crucial area.

Furthermore, this paper will focus on the topic of co-creation practices within the OI spectrum. We define co-creation as “the collaborative development of new value (concepts, solutions, products, and services) together with experts and/or stakeholders (such as customers, suppliers, partners, etc)” (Fronteer, 2022). Again, even though this topic is becoming more important and represents a greater opportunity for companies to create value for their customers and users, it is not researched enough.

Finally, we noticed that very few academic papers include cultural and geographic elements to the research on co-creation in an international context. Therefore, this thesis aims to investigate what seems to be a research gap, and will study the potential influence of cultural proximity in co-creation practices between international companies/subsidies.
