RESEARCH PROFILE

Baris Ozkan works as an Assistant Professor at  Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Department of  Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences (IE&IS), subgroup Information Systems. His research interests center around Service Systems Engineering with a specific focus on the development of value co-creative methods and tools for the design and configuration of business processes, business services, business models and digital platforms. He has a background in business process management, requirements engineering, process maturity assessment, and quantitative software management. In his research, Baris adopts a design science research approach, draws on the theories of the social and management sciences to identify design requirements, and employs quantitative and qualitative empirical research methods including Bayesian inference and Grounded Theory. The current research projects are related to the mobility service ecosystem development.

In a digitally connected world, rather than within the confines of an organization, value is co-created in dynamic networks of actors through complex exchanges. This calls for value-driven, multi-actor methods and tools for business process and information systems design.
