Dr. Chiasson is a Professor at the Faculty of Management at the Kelowna campus of UBC. Prior to joining UBC in 2014, he was a Professor of Information Systems, and an Advanced Institute for Management Research (AIM) fellow, at Lancaster University’s Management School, in the Department of Management Science. Before joining Lancaster University, he was an Associate Professor in the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary (1999 to 2006).
His research examines how the social context (broadly speaking) affects and is effected by IS development and implementation, using a range of social theories. In studying these questions, he has examined various topics including: system development (public policy, user involvement, agile development, outsourcing, packaged software, deconstruction, conflict), and the effects of IT (entrepreneurial capabilities, diffusion and infusion, organizational change, client-patient outcomes, privacy, professional work, cybercrime), with particular types of IT (enterprise resource planning, eHealth, electronic health records), within medical, legal, entrepreneurial, and governmental settings. His empirical work mixes both quantitative and qualitative data, with typically a strong emphasis on “participant” observation, resulting in various contributions to social theory (ANT, Habermas, pragmatism, structuration theory, entrepreneurial opportunities), action research, research methods and ethics.
