Abstract

The next generation Internet-of-Things (IoT) is touted Internet-of-Behavior (IoB). Its topping quality is the dynamic generation of behavior (prescriptions), based on extensive data analytics. Although this can be of benefit for timely adaptation, it requires qualified representation and informed design capabilities to understand its impact on individuals and the embodiment in organizational structures. This paper instantiates the concept of IoB as continuous transformation space. Its baseline are behavior encapsulations representing organizational intelligence through choreographic interactions. Transformation is based on describing role- or task-specific behavior as part of mutual interaction patterns to achieve a common objective. Refinements of behavior encapsulations and interactions to executable processes follow value-based analysis of interactions. The selected level of granularity determines the extent to which the operational intelligence of an organization can be de- or reconstructed and enriched with further intelligence. The presented design-science model could be institutionalized for continuous transformation due to its design-integrated engineering nature.
