Current research

  1. Exploring teams’ experiences of organizational change
    Software engineering teams’ are affected by social influence and form their attitudes toward organizational change collectively. Therefore, if software companies are to maintain a high rate of change while simultaneously ensuring healthy stress levels and high motivation among their employees, additional insights into the link between team behavior and organizational change are vital. Thus, the aim of this project is to gain insights into the relationship between software engineering teams’ behavior and organizational change.
    A collaboration between Saab AB, Chalmers University of Technology and Department of Psychology 
     
  2. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) a matter of generational?
    Today, there is increasing pressure on companies to respect human rights, core labor principles and basic environmental standards, regardless of the business they operate. Companies have a social and ethic responsibility - Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).The main purpose of this study is to examine whether there is a generational difference in motivation regarding CSR.
     
  3. Misaligned values in software engineering organizations
    Previous studies indicated that differences in shared values between organizational groups adversely affected organizational change. In this final study, we sought more profound insights into the between-group value misalignment. The aim of this project is to examine how discrepancies in values between organizational groups affect software companies’ performance. We also aim to extend the knowledge of organizational values more broadly using an exploratory research approach; accordingly, our secondary objective was to gain general insights into organizational values and how they affect behavior and performance in software companies.
