Karin Gräslund

While serving as research assistant at a university, Prof. Dr. Karin Gräslund, together with her professor and three PhD colleagues, established a medium-sized company for state-of-the-art, innovative IT consulting when their projects changed from scientific exploration to repetitive and proven consulting methods.

She has also worked in the non-academic sector, developing expertise in business intelligence projects and business case modeling for IT projects while working for SAP, among other companies. Today, she teaches informatics and Information Management in the Bachelor of Business Administration program and Finance Information & Enterprise Performance Management in the Master of Controlling & Finance program of the Wiesbaden Business School. She has also taught in several other universities around the world for over 10 years.

Her current interests include enterprise performance, evidence-based management, sustainability and user-experience management.
In 2006, she cofounded two roundtables in the University Alliance (SAP Business Intelligence and Business Process Management) and is member of the non-vendor academic platform for academic collaboration. As part of her University Alliance work, she has been involved in developing enterprise and industry standards, with OMG, LEADing Practice, and more. Together with Prof. Mark von Rosing she has also contributed to the Global TOGAF Business Architecture Methods & Certification Development.
