Anne Kristin Sortehaug Ajer

Academic Interests

My main research interests relate to enterprise architecture in inter-organizational settings and project management in complex environments. Theories I have applied sort under institutional theories. I currently conduct research on architecture governance related to enterprise architecture in the hospital context, but also more specifically how innovations for digital home care can be a part of this picture.

Higher education

I hold a PhD in Information Systems (2020), from the University of Agder with a thesis titled: " Institutional perspective on introducing enterprise architecture: The case of the Norwegian hospital sector”.

Tags: Enterprise architecture, institutional theory, interpretative research.
