Ask me Anything Session with 
Jan vom Brocke

On the 19.02.24, we had an insightful #AMA online session via Zoom with about 30 participants. Starting with DS:E Fellow Jan's personal path to Design Science Research (DSR), we delved deeper into three overarching topics in session: 

1) Idea generation for research project: We spoke about how to find design ideas (speak with practitioners), how to address future problems (adopt a builders mindset from #IS that can be adopted in other disciplines), and why an interdisciplinary research environment is important.


2) DSR Paper Writing & Publishing: The discussion ranged from parceling out ones research according to design echelons (in line with a forthcoming piece at MISQ: Dealing with Complexity in Design Science Research) and the necessity to not oversell ideas, but clearly communicate the context and boundaries of found solutions.


3) Future direction of DSR research: In the last section, we ended with Jan's view on how young scholars can find future research fields (problem-based: work on SDGs, solution-based: look at AI, best combine both).
