Characterising Crowd-based Organisations

The focus of this project is on “crowd-based organisations” which are rapidly assembled organisations composed of online crowd workers to achieve complex goals.Currently, organisations use crowdsourcing strategies such as microtasking to enable goals that are so simple and modular and can be pre-defined. For example, major companies such as IBM, HP, and Oracle, have invested in Open Source Software (OSS) platforms and this allows them to harness collective intelligence through what are essentially crowdsourced activities (OSS software contributions). However, understanding …

The human factors in self-service technology

Organisations are increasingly moving toward self-service technology (where consumers deliver services themselves using technological interfaces).

What motivators and inhibitors impact self-service technology usage? Do consumers always respond appropriately within self-service environments? The successful applicant for this …

Decision modelling to overcome intergenerational discounting

This project aims to address a key obstacle to climate action: intergenerational discounting, a phenomenon that explains the tendency for people to prefer smaller benefits for themselves now, rather than larger benefits for future generations. Intergenerational discounting becomes even more problematic due to a growing global population and increasingly intensive use of natural resources.In this project, we follow the design science approach and aim to establish design principles necessary for decision modelling to overcome intergenerational discounting and achieve genuine and …

Creating inclusive organisations

Arguably, sustainable employment of people with disability sits at the nexus of the individual, organisations and society. Hence this topic could be explored from the individual and/or organisational perspective. There are opportunities for student projects in the broad area of creating inclusive organisational environments including, but not limited to:Inclusive …

Risk management and financial systems integrity. Enhancing outcomes for indigenous not-for-profit organisations

This topic examines the NFP sector, in particular, indigenous organisations and the risk associated with incidents of fraud.

Scant attention has been paid to the NFP sector in relation to fraud risk management. The study will help to address this.If you are interested in researching this topic as part of a Master of Philosophy (Accountancy), and you …
