Large-scale Visualisations in Support of Strategic Decisions

Digitalisation of organisational processes requires decision makers to evaluate information generated by newly-adopted digital technology. Making business decisions that involve digital modelling and the impact of visualising model-derived alternatives on strategic decision-making has not been explored by neither management nor visualisation literature. Current visualisation research lacks studies evidently connecting data visualisation to decision-making in the corporate environment. This research addresses this gap by investigating information visualisation requirements when digital alternatives are shown in the context of multi-perspective distributed decision-making, where multiple stakeholders will have different information needs as well as evaluative and decision- making tasks. This study contributes to the visualisation research agenda by focusing on explicit visualisation support to management decision-making in organisations by: 1) exploring information and visualisation requirements for cross-functional stakeholders, 2) developing information visualisation principles to support collaborative distributed decision- making, 3) exploring visualisations as evolvable boundary objects.
