Abstract Title: The video surveillance industry in the USA - the future development and the technology shift Seminar date: 4/6 - 2010 Course: FEKP01, Degree Project Graduate Level, Business Administration, Graduate Level, 15 University Credit Points (ECTS-cr) Authors: Johan Lindgren and Marc Palm Mentor: Thomas Kalling Key words: Technology shift, Video surveillance industry, Organizational Learning, Knowledge Management, USA. Purpose: We aim to clarify how the integrators interpret the future development within the industry and if they are trying to respond to it. Methodology: The study is conducted through qualitative semi-structured interviews. Theoretical perspectives: The study uses popular theories associated with Organizational Learning and Knowledge Management. We have used Child´s theory about “the learning process in organizations and necessary conditions for success” as our theoretical framework. We have, however, modified the theory somewhat by adding some theories to it. The reason for this is to make the framework more applicable on the video surveillance industry. Empirical foundation: The study is conducted through phone interviews with seven senior officers working at companies at the bottom of the integrators’ pyramid in the video surveillance industry. Conclusions: Noticeable is that all the integrators in our study, despite their background and geographical location, have a shared view on the IP-technology, what is going to happen in the industry and the importance of being continually morphing, improving and learning. Even though the integrators differ somewhat in size, they all seem to have a very strong organizational code and a strong commitment among the members resulting in a shared perspective and vision. This in combination with flat and open organizations encourages active and inspired members to take initiatives and suggest improvements. (Less)
