My name is Alexander Karl Michael Richter and I am a (Full) Professor for Information Systems at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. I am currently the Academic Leader of the Executive MBA Programme and the Director of the Master of Professional Business Analysis Programme.
Prior to joining Wellington University, I was Associate Professor at IT University of Copenhagen and head of the research unit “Digital Work Design” at University of Zurich. I did my PhD (and was later research team lead) at Bundeswehr University Munich and was also a Visiting Researcher at Sydney University where I am still a member of their digital disruption research group.
My research interests evolve around #EnterpriseSocialNetworks #Innovation #KnowledgeWork #DigitalWorkDesign #Sociotechnical #VirtualLeadership #WorkPractices and #InformationSystemsEvaluation.
Over the last 10 years, I was involved in more than 30 projects with leading companies and research institutes aiming to contribute to the design of digital workplaces. For example, I was leading the requirements analysis in the major European project “Worker-Centric Workplaces for Smart Factories” from 2014 to 2018 and facilitated change projects with companies like Allianz, Airbus, Bayer, BMW and Bosch.
