Biography

Denis Dennehy is a lecturer with the Business Information Systems Group and Research Fellow with Lero | The Irish Software Research Centre at NUI Galway. His current research focuses on the application of (i) flow practices and tools, (ii) flow analytics, (iii) enactment of flow within the context of information systems development (ISD), and (iv) its implications for people, processes and organisations. His research is informed through extensive engagement with Lero industry project partners and is supported with the financial support of the Science Foundation Ireland grant 13/RC/2094 to Lero.

He has a keen interest in current discourse on the socio-technical aspects of ISD (Lean, Flow, Scrum) and the emphasises on viewing ISD as evolving activity systems (teams, organisations) beyond a single user. He has published this work in leading outlets such as the International Conference on Information Systems, and the Journal of Systems & Software.   

He is a Senior Editor of Information Technology & People and is Programme Director of the MSc. Business Analytics programme. He teaches a range of information systems related topics at postgraduate and undergraduate level.
