Award for the best doctoral dissertation in Information Systems
Olgerta Tona, associate senior lecturer at Department of Informatics at Lund University Shool of Economics and Management, received Börje Langefors 2018 award for the best doctoral dissertation in Information Systems.
The prize is awarded by Swedish Academy for Information Systems (SISA). Olgerta’s dissertation, with the title “The Journey of Mobile Business Intelligence: from Vision to Use” received this motivation:
The thesis is a good example of the article and summary thesis form, with well-published articles in recognized international outlets on a contemporary theme. Of particular note is the mixed method approach, and the care taken in the summary to justify and integrate the various parts of the world: research questions, methods, articles, results, reflections. The well-organized conclusions should be of value both to researchers and practitioners.
Olgerta defended her dissertation January 2017. The opponent was David Sammon from University College Cork. Olgerta’s supervisors were Sven Carlsson, Dorothy Leidner and Ulrike Schultze.
