    SPP 1921: "Intentional Forgetting" in organisations: Forgetting confidently: Determinants and consequences of trustful usage of information systems in organizations

    Continuously increasing and changing amounts of data in modern organizations demand new information handling strategies. Effective knowledge management requires a flexible selection of essential information, for example, for decision processes under uncertainty or in dynamic economic markets. In this regard, information systems can reduce decision maker's cognitive load, emotional strain, and stress. However, for those positive effects to occur, persons need to use the information systems trustfully in order to forget "confidently". The goal of the present research project is to model and empirically examine the psychological processes underlying trustful use of information systems, enabling intentional forgetting.

    Reducing the moderation effort of user comments with the help of automation using text analytical methods (MODERAT!)

    In recent years, a rapid increase in racist, political and religiously motivated hate commentary has led many newspaper editors to deactivate their online comment functions on their websites. While this is understandable from an economic point of view for the individual publishers, serious problems for the public discourse arise in view of restriction quotas of up to 50%. The MODERAT! project aims to use an integrative and interdisciplinary approach to develop software tools and a web platform that will enable operators to moderate web debates with significantly less effort. Comments are analyzed automatically, so that only a small number of critical comments have to be viewed manually. In this way, media houses and publishers should be able to offer web debates again on their own websites and thus enter into a more active exchange with the readership.

    Ask Sophie! - Development of a Comic Figure to Answer Scientific Questions

    The planned project "Ask Sophie! - Development of a Comic Figure to Answer Scientific Questions" is a novel participation concept that strengthens low-threshold communication between research and society. Within the framework of the planned project, a cartoon character - "Sophie" - is to be developed by means of which citizens' questions can be collected, evaluated and utilized. The citizens can address questions to "Sophie", which will be answered with a comic strip that is freely accessible online (homepage of the university, the AFO, Instagram, Facebook and also published in daily newspapers.

    SPP 1921: 'Intentional Forgetting' in organisations: 'Forgetting confidently': Motivational and emotional influences on intentional forgetting in organisations

    The tandem project of the University of Münster with the disciplines Organisational & Business Psychology (Guido Hertel) and Information Systems (Jörg Becker) focuses on studies on motivational factors that can interfere or promote intentional forgetting in organizations. Intentional forgetting is operationalized by the extent of the utilization of information systems. Information systems are considered to be a structural form of intentional forgetting in organizations that provide users with relevant information so that less relevant information can fade into the background (gradual forgetting). In this way, the use of information systems can save resources and increase the quality and speed of decisions by focusing on the essential decision criteria.

    Propelling Business Process Management by Research and Innovation Staff Exchange

    RISE_BPM networks world-leading research institutions and corporate innovators to develop new horizons for Business Process Management (BPM). BPM is a boundary-spanning discipline focused on division and re-integration of day-to-day work in organisations and on analysis of process data for organisational decision-making. Recent break-through innovations in Social Computing, Smart Devices, Real-Time Computing, and Big Data Technology create a strong impetus for propelling BPM into a pervasive corporate topic that enables design of entirely new products and services.

    Towards EPC Standardization - Process Modelling with Event-driven Process Chains

    Mit der Ereignisgesteuerten Prozesskette (EPK) wurde zu Beginn der 1990er Jahren die bis dato in Deutschland dominierende Modellierungssprache entwickelt. Insbesondere in Wissenschaft und Praxis trifft die EPK seit fast zwei Jahrzehnten auf breite Akzeptanz, obwohl bis dato kein anerkannter Standard für die EPK existiert. Ziel des Projekts SPEAK ist die Erarbeitung einer EPK-Spezifikation in Zusammenarbeit mit Fachexperten aus Wissenschaft und Praxis. Zur Zielerreichung werden in mehreren Arbeitspaketen die Grundlagen einer solchen Spezifikation geschaffen. Dies umfasst unter anderem die Durchführung einer Anforderungsanalyse, die metamodell-, formalsemantische-, und enumerative Spezifikation der EPK sowie die Definition eines Austausch- und Speicherformats.

    Federal Information Management

    Many public administrations maintain their information on administrative procedures on their own. This leads to a heterogeneous information landscape. It is, however, crucial for maintaining a reliable public service that same content is always described the same. Here, the FIM project comes into play. It is the goal to build up an information management that supports information exchange across all federal levels between internal processes and between public administrations and citizens (public service). This will be achieved by combining functional and technical Standardization.
