The Value of Digital Automation
The Value of Business Process Automation
Thesis project description
I am still in the process of scoping the thesis, and I am currently working on some of the administrative tasks of getting an academic supervisor. However, I have the following ideas for the project:
Preliminary problem statement:
How do you gain the most value possible in digital automation projects such as (either RPA or BPA) and how do you measure it?
The notion of value is in this regard questioned in how to measure value. I would like to research both the technical aspects of automation and the social aspects, as I believe, as of now, they are undeniably related which need to be adjusted for.
I think that automation processes are inevitably part of the future of all businesses by all the effectiveness it brings along such as saving costs, ensuring effectiveness, and increasing competitiveness. However, I think that there is more to process automation besides the monetary and corporate benefits, and I want to research in-depth how you measure the value of both the technical and social aspects of it.
I hope to use your valuable insights, as a change agent within IT, to be able to research the social and technical effects of process automation, and the potential value it generates for companies and society. The results would possibly be presented in a form of a framework mapping collaboration along with important considerations.
Managerial value of the research
My research, if proven, could potentially have great insights into the area of the industry. This knowledge would be available to you as our partner before any of the other players in the field would have the same insights. I believe this will be very valuable and of great competitive advantage
Research topic motivation
My name is Jacob and I study Digital Innovation & Management at ITU. During my Master’s, I have gotten highly interested in Process Optimization. I see this collaboration with you as an opportunity to dive deeper into this field with a practical approach, with the available resources, you as a firm, can grant me. I see this collaboration as a mutually beneficial relationship as I hope to contribute with valuable perspectives for you throughout my research.
Why collaborate with us
I have had 3 courses within the field, and I am convinced that this is what I want to work with after graduating. I would like to diver deeper into this field, giving me additional knowledge within this area.
10 to 19 weeks.
