    Leadership, not leaders: On the study of leadership as practices and interactions2010Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 26, nr 1, s. 77-86Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we suggest a perspective within leadership research that has an analytical focus on leadership as it is practiced in daily interaction, rather than on individual leaders. We draw upon recent developments in leadership research that emphasize leadership as processes, practices and interactions in formulating basic scientific assumptions of such a perspective. The suggested perspective will enable us to gain new understandings of how leadership activities emerge in social interaction and of how institutionalized notions of leadership are brought into and re-constructed in these same activities. Given this reasoning, we would suggest that the empirical study of leadership should be based in a process ontology, focused on leadership practices as constructed in interactions.

    Ledarskap bortom idén om den ensamma hjälten2013Inngår i: Leda mot det nya: En forskningsantologi om chefskap och innovation / [ed] Martin Kreuger, Lucia Crevani, Kristina Larsen, Stockholm: Vinnova , 2013, 1, s. 43-60Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [sv]

    Otaliga teorier har försökt beskriva det optimala ledarskapet. Men i regel lämnar de ändå en utgångspunkt orörd, nämligen föreställningen om att den goda ledaren är en enskild person med särskilda utförsgåvor. Denna heroiska grundsyn på chefskapet stämmer illa med verkligheten och leder tanken fel. Det är därför hög tid att överge hjältemytenoch i stället betrakta ledarskapet som en gemensam process där alla aktörer bidrar med olika grad av medledarskap, skriver Lucia Crevani, Monica Lindgren och Johann Packendorff vid KTH.

    Shared leadership: A post-heroic perspective on leadership as a collective construction2007Inngår i: International Journal of Leadership Studies, ISSN 1554-3145, Vol. 3, nr 1, s. 40-67Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Within the field of leadership practices, there is an emergent movement towards viewing leadership in terms of collaboration between two or more persons. At the same time, traditional literature on leadership and organization theory has been dominated almost exclusively by the perspective that leadership is something that is exercised by a single person—the idea of unitary command (Pearce & Manz, 2005). This has been challenged by the theoretical perspective of postheroic leadership, of which one practical consequence is to view leadership activities as collective rather than individual. In this paper, we argue that by shifting perspective from viewing leadership as a single-person activity to viewing it as collective construction processes, we will see new patterns in how leadership is exercised in practice. Thematic data from four qualitative case studies of organizations are presented. A discussion towards future research agendas where the articulation and questioning of the foundations of leadership practices and leadership research are central to the development of postheroic leadership ideals concludes the paper.

    Towards process studies of project leadership2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we draw on current research in the general field of leadership studies in order to suggest that process per-spectives are relevant and rewarding for inquiry into project leadership. Departing from a process ontology we argue that project leadership can be studied as series of social activities and events in which actors, projects and organizational contexts are all in constant an mutually interacting flux, rather than as traits, styles and competences of individual project managers. From such a per-spective, project leadership is seen as the ongoing social production of direction through construction and re-construction of actors’ space of action. This involves processes of continuous construction and reconstruction of (1) past project activities and events, (2) positions and areas of responsibility related to the project, (3) discarded, ongoing and future issues to be dealt with in the project, and (4) temporal rhythm and pace. Drawing on an in-depth ethnographic case study of an organizational change project, we show how the space of action and hence the direction of the project is in constant flux and becoming.

    We don’t need another hero: Towards the study of leadership as everyday practices2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In all theories of management and organization, leadership has a given central place in enforcing principles, motivating employees and communicating future goals and visions to strive for. Leadership is assumed to make a special, significant and positive contribution to action processes in most organizations, and leadership studies as an academic field has thus been preoccupied with the task of identifying the most successful leadership practices. At the same time, the field of leadership studies has traditionally been leader-centered, i.e. focused on the individual leader and his/hers traits, abilities and actions. Leadership practices have been equated with leaders’ practices, dichotomously separated from those of the ‘others’ in this tradition, the ‘followers’. The aim of this paper is to put forward an alternative perspective, based on the idea that leadership is a natural part of what most people do on an everyday basis in organisations. From this perspective, leadership is a set of social practices organised by people in interaction, practices related to intentional processes of organisational change and development. Empirical data from recent case studies will be used to illustrate the tenets of this alternative perspective

    Innovation management in service firms: a research agenda2011Inngår i: Service Business, ISSN 1862-8516, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 177-193Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article suggests an agenda for further research on innovation management in service firms. It investigates differences and similarities between issues identified by previous academic research and issues brought up by practitioners within the area of innovation management in service firms. The results show that there are some major differences; for instance, researchers stress a need for formalized processes for development work, while practitioners focus on facilitating innovation in everyday operations. The main conclusion is that in order to bridge the gap between research and practice we would encourage further research on innovation in service firms to (1) conduct micro studies of innovation work, (2) view innovation in the context of everyday operations and (3) focus on co-workers' innovative potential.

    Organising (for)service innovation: formalisation versus creativity2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present and compare two studies on challenges with organising (for) innovation in service-intensive companies. One of the studies reviews the contribution of previous studies to the understanding of managing and organising innovation in service companies. The other is an explorative interview study focusing on how people working in service-intensive organisation in Sweden reason about innovation and the role of co-workers in the innovation process. In both these studies a common and important theme is the potential tension between formalisation and room for creativity. The purpose of this paper is to problematise and discuss this tension between formalised processes and creativity in the context of service-intensive companies. We identify four aspects worth attention in further studies: 1) How can service-intensive companies find a balance between formalisation and room for creativity when organising for innovation?, 2) How does the manufacturing industry influence the service industry in terms of processes, methods and vocabulary related to organising (for) innovation?, 3) How is individual and collective creativity conceptualised and what difference does this have for the organisation (for) innovation in service-intensive firms? and 4) What happens with innovation when the service delivery process is being formalised?

    Pull yourselves together, old men!: A gendered critique of project managers’ professional ethics in a public sector context2009Inngår i: Ephemera : Theory and Politics in Organization, ISSN 2052-1499, E-ISSN 1473-2866, Vol. 9, nr 2, s. 113-130Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Project management is omnipresent, but the growth of project management practices and discourses has suffered – and is still suffering – from a lack of ethical reflection. Moreover, most of the existing literature on project management ethics aims at universality and generalised frameworks. We take a critical stance to such ambitions and draw upon a tradition of thought that relates ethics intrinsically to community practices. We therefore present a rich account of an empirical case, that of the Swedish Road Administration (SRA), where the context –the public sector, the construction industry, the project managers relying on external suppliers – is extremely important in order to understand how ethics is constructed. Drawing on critical perspectives on projects and gender, as well as on feminist ethics, we read the empirical material and show how ethics is constructed in complex and sometimes contradictory and surprising ways. We show how being (or seeming to be) in control becomes a central issue, at the same time as the traditional dichotomy of a masculine ethics versus a feminine ‘ethics of caring’ is problematic as such constructs are fluid and intertwined.

    Convergence or National Specificity?: Testing the CI Maturity Model across Multiple Countries2007Inngår i: Creativity and Innovation Management, ISSN 0963-1690, E-ISSN 1467-8691, Vol. 16, nr 4, s. 348-362Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study empirically tests the Continuous Improvement (CI) maturity model across multiple countries. The analysis is based on data from the 2nd International CINet Survey, limited to the situation in Australia, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Despite some differences in Continuous Improvement maturity level between countries, findings lend support to the convergence argument. Regardless of national specificity, Continuous Improvement behaviour patterns emerge in a similar fashion, and furthermore, correspond to improved operational performance if adopted. In addition, findings show that other contextual variables such as company size and type of production system are of limited importance. This implies that Continuous Improvement is something that can be implemented and developed successfully if managed properly, irrespective of contextual influences such as those stemming from cultural and industrial factors.

    From general to specialty hospitals: operationalising focus in healthcare operations2019Inngår i: Operations Management Research, ISSN 1936-9735, E-ISSN 1936-9743Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study proposes an operationalisation of the term focus in healthcare operations. We develop a configuration model consisting of six interrelated dimensions that can be used to characterise hospital focus. The proposed dimensions of focus are Knowledge areas, Procedures, Medical conditions, Patient groups, Planning horizons and Levels of difficulty. The strength of these dimensions is shown through empirical examination, using a three-step methodology to analyse case study data from a unique transformation project where general hospitals were turned into new types of focused specialty hospitals. As our study takes a portfolio approach to the allocation of demand segments to different healthcare delivery units, it contributes to operations management knowledge with a model for segmenting healthcare demand from an operations perspective. This configuration model provides researchers and practitioners with a tool for understanding current configurations as well as for identifying potential new configurations of focus in healthcare.

    Strategic market entry by applying the path dependency approach2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Entering a new market is one of the most important strategic decisions a company makes, and being an external player can make it possible to reveal opportunities not apparent to the industry players. The key is to not take industry structures for granted, but to think outside the box when formulating the entering strategy. This study rests on the assumption that there are factors in industries that are more path dependent than others, hence they are rigid and difficult to change. These factors could eventually prevent the industry from evolving even though new technology and processes are available. By first identifying factors strongly governed by path dependency and then delving deeper to understand the reason why they have not changed, this study argue that new business opportunities can evolve. The approach developed in this paper is particularly beneficial when the product or service is not yet developed and the company has many different resources, enabling a more diversified product portfolio, in which opportunities can be prioritized against the company resources. This enables matching a product or service to the industry rather than pushing it out on the market. In this report the path dependency approach is applied on the banana market, which has features governed by path dependency, and the entering company is a subsidiary to an established company and thereby has multiple resources as well as products and services. Since the subsidiary chose to proceed with the strategy formulated by using the path dependency approach the findings from the case study show that the approach can be useful when entering a new market. The report concludes that the concept of path dependency is ambiguous and subjective but could be useful when formulating an entry strategy into a new market. However, further research is needed to evaluate the application of the approach and the path dependency approach should primarily be seen as a complement to existing market entry strategies.

    Exploring the Role of Structural Holes in Learning: an Empirical Study of Swedish Pharmacies2011Inngår i: 2011 6th International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD 2011): Knowledge-Based Foundations of the Service Economy, 2011, s. 185-204Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we focus on the structural configuration of social capital, more specifically structural holes, and its inter-relationship with learning. A wide range of literature has analysed social capital and its beneficial effects, however, despite the extensive investigations of social capital, there is surprisingly enough still a lack of studies investigating the role of the structural configuration of the social capital for employees' individual learning. The objective of this paper is to address this gap in the literature, enhancing our understanding of the links between social capital and individual learning. An online questionnaire survey was administered to 252 employees affiliated with the 22 pharmacies. The analysis was made through ordinal logistic regression models based on maximum likelihood estimations. The results suggest that the presence of structural holes first increases the degree of individual learning, then reaches a maximum and begins to decrease gradually. The mechanism at work in the relationship between structural holes and individual learning is an interesting area for further research. Tentative explanations to this cognitive psychological effect are discussed in terms of cognitive distance as well as information overload.

    Abstract [en]

    As a graduation project at a design school in Stockholm, a piece of furniture to be used for retreats in the public space was exhibited. It was named 'The Cocoon' and was a reclining chair covered with a bubble-like construction made out of cloth and steel. The exhibition was a starting point for a number of journeys. In the years to come, the Cocoon reached museums, exhibition halls, newspapers and magazines throughout the world. In this article, we track the travels and illustrate the transformations of the Cocoon. We seek to understand spacing activities behind the travels and view the travels from a spatial perspective focusing on the relation between transportation and transformation, of emptiness, form and content.

    The behavioral consequences of internal brand management among frontline employees2017Inngår i: Journal of Product & Brand Management, ISSN 1061-0421, Vol. 26, nr 3, s. 251-261Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to develop and test a comprehensive model for the outcomes of internal brand management (IBM), linking it to brand citizenship behavior (BCB) and intention to stay (IS) through job satisfaction (JS) and brand commitment (BC). Design/methodology/approach: A comprehensive literature review is undertaken to develop the proposed model. The sample consists of three separate cases, a financial services firm, a multinational telecommunications company, both based in South Africa, and a regional grocery chain operating in the USA. Useable samples of 154, 96 and 241 were achieved for the three cases, respectively. In all cases, the majority of the respondents were customer contact employees. Findings: The structural models showed some surprising results, the major one being that brand proselytization is not a component of BCB. Despite using the same instrument, the levers that drive IBM were different in each of the three cases and different from previous studies. Research limitations/implications: The results of this research indicate that IBM and BCB are contextual. This implies that a universal instrument to measure these constructs has yet to be developed, representing an interesting avenue for future research. Practical implications: Regarding employees as internal customers and including them in various marketing initiatives and brand-orientated human resource practices (recruitment, induction and training) are key to a successful IBM program. Originality/value: A comprehensive model for the outcomes of IBM was developed and tested, linking it to BCB and IS through JS and BC. It is the first time that research has been conducted with customer contact employees only.

    Outsourcing contact centers: internal branding challenges and consequences2019Inngår i: Journal of business & industrial marketing, ISSN 0885-8624, E-ISSN 2052-1189, Vol. 34, nr 5, s. 921-930Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose The purpose of this paper is to develop a deeper understanding of the philosophy adopted by organizations in making the decision to outsource contact centers or not. Design/methodology/approach A phenomenological study was used to develop an understanding of industry participants' experience of the outsourcing of contact centers in South Africa. Ten in-depth interviews were conducted. Content analysis identified key thoughts and common themes. This was used to develop a model for outsourcing. Findings Evidence was found to support three propositions developed from the literature regarding the reasons for and the unintended consequences of outsourcing. A model was developed to illustrate how costs can be reduced by outsourcing under different conditions of "headcount constraints" and "failure costs" of customer relationship management. Originality/value New knowledge is provided about the philosophy adopted by organizations when outsourcing contact centers. A model is presented to guide managers in the outsourcing decision-making process.

    Do codes of conduct improve worker rights in supply chains?: A study of Fair Wear Foundation2015Inngår i: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 107, s. 31-40Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The rise of private regulation of sustainability in global production networks has led to intensive debates about the impact of this regulation at the point of production. Yet, few empirical studies have systematically examined this impact in practice. Based on multiple factory audits of 43 garment factories conducted by the multi-stakeholder initiative Fair Wear Foundation, we show that codes of conduct improve (although marginally) worker rights on an overall level but that few significant results are found for specific worker rights. Our findings also lend support to the widespread argument that codes have uneven impact. Furthermore, we show that even rigorous multi-stakeholder factory audits seldom are able to identify process rights violations (such as those affecting freedom of association and discrimination), and that auditing is thus is more fundamentally flawed than assumed in previous research. Given companies' extensive investments in private regulation of worker rights, the findings have important implications for both scholars and managers.

    Exploring the Introduction of a new Actor Role in a Construction Project Setting2019Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The construction industry is a complex industry in which all activities occur in projects. Construction projects are by their definition temporary and inter-organizational with multitude of different actors working together. The work is done through several sequential and parallel processes that needs to be coordinated through the entire project lifecycle. This has been seen as a challenge for innovation and change within the construction industry, which has been characterized as conservative and reluctant to change. To improve innovation and inter-organizational integration, the construction industry has seen an increased use of collaborative efforts to support efficient production, to improve safety, reduce environmental impact and implementing third-party logistics (TPL). Introducing a new, a TPL provider, challenges the traditional project setting and how construction work traditionalley has been performed. The general aim of this study is to explore the effects of a new actor in a traditional project setup and to better understand how relationships evolve with innovation in temporary networks.

    Exploring Third-Party Logistics and Partnering in Construction: A Supply Chain Management Perspective2016Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The construction industry is associated with problems such as low productivity and high costs. This has been highlighted in several government-funded reports in both Sweden and in the UK during the course of over two decades. The construction industry is a large industry sector employing hundreds of thousands and a large contributor to a country’s GDP. The problems therefore have a large impact on society. Some of the problems are rooted in the organizational structure of the construction industry. Compared to other manufacturing industries, the construction industry is organized in temporary organizations. The temporary organizations cause temporary supply chains, fragmentation among construction industry actors and adversarial relationships between those actors. Partnering has been but forward as a solution to overcome the temporariness and the adversarial relationships in the construction. Another solution to mitigate the problems suggested in the reports is supply chain management (SCM). Both concepts have been taken from the manufacturing industries and partnering has been more successful compared to SCM in the construction industry. In the construction industry the progress towards SCM has focused on logistics. In recent years dedicated third-party logistics (TPL) solutions have emerged in the Swedish construction industry, where a company is hired to manage the logistics in a construction project.

    The purpose with the research presented in this licentiate thesis is to explore how client initiated TPL solutions and partnering can be facilitators for SCM in the construction industry. Being a new phenomenon in the construction industry TPL solutions provide a logistical competence not necessarily included in a traditional construction project. Therefore, TPL solutions are of particular interest when studying the realization of SCM in the construction industry. In the process of realizing SCM in the construction industry, the construction clients have been put forward as having a crucial and important role. The clients are the initiator and funder of construction projects and as such the client can influence the course of a construction project. Therefore, it is of interest to study how the client can take an active role in this process. Initiating a TPL solution in a construction project is one way for a client to take an active part in the realization of SCM in construction.

    However, in order to study how clients can take an active role towards the realization of SCM in the construction industry, there have to be an understanding of how SCM is to be adopted to the construction industry context. SCM that derives from the manufacturing industry is designed to be used in long-term relationships with permanent organizational structures. The construction industry on the other hand is associated with short-term relationships and a temporary organizational structure. Partnering that is designed to mitigate the temporariness and establish long-term relationships have been quite successful in the construction industry, and could therefore be used as a facilitator for SCM in construction.

    To study the use of client initiated TPL-solutions in construction and the realization of SCM in the construction industry the following research questions have been addressed:

    • RQ1: To what extent can a third-party logistics solution be a facilitator for client driven SCM in the construction industry?
    • RQ2: How will upstream and downstream tiers be affected when a thirdparty logistics provider is used in a construction project?
    • RQ3: How can partnering be used a mean to facilitate the realization of SCM in the construction industry?

    To answer the research questions two main methodologies have been used; case study for the empirically grounded research and conceptual studies for the analysis of the case studies as well as for comparing the two concepts of partnering and SCM. All questions have been grounded in literature and previous research. The findings of this research is therefore grounded in both theory and in practice. The main findings of this research is that TPL solutions are not a quick fix for realizing SCM in the construction industry. However, if used right a TPL solution can be an effective tool to address logistical issues in a construction project and to establish an interface between the supply chain and the construction site. By initiating a TPL solution the client addresses the importance of logistical competence in a construction project. A TPL solution does not have a purpose of its own; a TPL solution is a service function to the construction project, providing expertise on logistics management. There are also a number of driving forces and concerns that have been identified, if they are addressed prior to a TPL solution is implemented, the likelihood of its success will increase.

    Furthermore, both partnering and SCM rely on high trust and share several key components and issues that have to be addressed. Partnering on strategic level with several suppliers included can even be hard to distinguish from SCM. Wherefore, partnering is considered a facilitator for the realization of SCM in construction. By addressing the necessary issues in both concepts a good foundation for SCM is established.

    Partnering as a mean towards the use of supply chain management in temporary construction organizationsManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The construction industry is a complex industry typically working in temporary

    organizations. The temporary organizational structure of the construction industry affects

    the outcome of construction projects. In recent years the construction industry has been

    associated with problems such as low productivity, high costs, high waste and poorly

    managed supply chains. To overcome these problems, several government funded reports

    and research reports have addressed the problems. Two concepts have gained a lot of

    interest in these reports: partnering and supply chain management (SCM). However,

    partnering, that have been introduced to overcome the temporariness in the construction

    industry has been more successful than SCM. A reason behind this could be that SCM

    derives from the manufacturing industry and is directed towards long-term relationships

    and permanent organizational structures. By a conceptual literature review it is

    investigated if the realization of SCM in construction could be facilitated by the use of

    partnering. Both concepts share many components and partnering has been a successful

    approach to overcome the boundaries temporary organizations imply. The two concepts

    are in fact so similar that it can be argued that partnering is a subset of SCM focusing

    relationships. The question would then be what type of partnering approach is most

    suitable when realizing SCM in construction.

    Abstract [en]

    Suppliers and transport providers are key parties in the construction supply chain, and their respective roles when employing third-party logistics (3PL) is investigated. The purpose is to analyze how they are affected by the 3PL solution in terms of their attitudes towards the use of 3PL, the experienced defects from the 3PL solution, and their level of supply chain management (SCM) maturity. This is done by a literature review and an explorative case study at a large construction project employing a 3PL solution. Results show a positive attitude and that they actively address SCM issues, whereas actual effects are inconclusive.

    Third-party logistics in construction: the case of a large hospital project2016Inngår i: Construction Management and Economics, ISSN 0144-6193, E-ISSN 1466-433X, Vol. 34, nr 3, s. 174-191Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The construction supply chain is of temporary nature and complex, with many interactions between multiple actors in different construction projects. This challenging context typically leads to relatively higher costs and lower productivity, compared to other industries. Supply chain management (SCM) has been put forward as a mean to better handle this challenging context. As a part of SCM initiatives some construction industry stakeholders have turned to third-party logistics (TPL) providers, especially in large construction projects. The use of TPL providers is a new, and under-investigated, phenomenon in the construction industry. The main purpose of this study is thus to explore the use of a TPL provider in a large construction project and to analyse its resulting effects. Driving forces and possible concerns for implementing TPL are identified and the possibility for TPL to be a facilitator for implementing SCM in construction is investigated. The research is based on a literature review and an explorative case study of a large hospital project in Sweden, where the client and the main contractor have initiated the use of a TPL provider to coordinate sourcing and materials handling activities on site. The results show positive effects on establishing an effective interface between the construction site and the supply chain. The results also show that a TPL solution facilitates an increase in productive work at the construction site itself, a reduction of costs and an increased utilisation of site assets. On the downside, the study also shows a lack of SCM knowledge amongst the involved actors in the project, hindering them to reap the full potential of TPL.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate the use of 3PL providers in large construction projects, and to identify main drivers and barriers, as well as the resulting effects, when implementing SCM by the use of 3PL providers. This is done by the means of a literature review and an explorative case study, the latter being a large hospital construction project. The results show positive performance effects in terms of increased productivity, resources utilization, and delivery performance, but also that there are challenges when it comes to organizational setting, policy adherence and supply chain coordination.

    Gendered recognition practices and the perpetuation of vulnerability: A study in Swedish universities2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In current critical research on work life in the higher education sector, analyses often revolve around neoliberal managerialism as contrasted to traditional professional academic values (cf. Henkel, 1997; Deem, 2004; Ekman et al, 2017). Academics are both faced with expectations to uphold the integrity of academic values in their research and teaching, whilst at the same time performing and ’careering’ in accordance with managerialist reforms (Clarke & Knights, 2015).

    Knights & Clarke (2014) analyse insecurity as a central aspect of identity in academics, conceptualizing academic life as a ‘bittersweet symphony’ populated by imposters (self- doubt and low self-esteem despite adequate performance), aspirants (under-recognised in relation to their inner sense of excellence) and existentialists (questioning the meaning of work and maintaining a sense of anxiety over their contributions to wider society). Another example is provided by Bristow et al (2017) who identify how early career-academics within CMS play on three narratives – diplomatic, combative and idealistic – by which they both resist and reproduce the ethos of business school neoliberalism in which they are embedded. Academics’ identity construction thus in different ways tend to position them as vulnerable selves (Cicmil et al, 2016), that is, as existentially exposed to the risks associated with projectified careers, macho-style management and a high degree of self-responsibility (Loveday, 2018).

    In addition, a number of earlier studies has also pointed out the highly gendered nature of how academic work is organized, how recruitment and promotion processes unfold etc. (cf. (cf. Hush, 2001; Mählck, 2003; van den Brink & Benschop, 2012).

    In this study we will focus on recognition practices (how recognition repeatedly tend to happen or not happen in local/cultural contexts, and thus also become the expectation on what may happen in future interactions) and their consequences for identity construction

    1

    and sense of vulnerability thus seem central to advance the above insights. Recognition practices thus involve not only what and whom is recognized or not for something, but also in what settings certain practices are legitimate or not, and how they are publicly displayed in social interaction.

    We suggest that

    • recognition practices are an important yet under-researched aspect of academic

      identity construction processes

    • recognition practices are gendered, i.e. we perform gender in our ways of

      - conferring and receiving recognition,- constructing what recognition may mean in different local/cultural contexts, - constructing when it is to be conferred/received or not,- constructing how it is appropriately played out how in social interaction.

    • recognition practices tend to sustain vulnerability among academics, but in different ways for men and women.

    Universities need leadership, academics need management: discursive tensions and voids in the deregulation of Swedish higher education legislation2018Inngår i: Higher Education, ISSN 0018-1560, E-ISSN 1573-174X, Vol. 75, nr 2, s. 299-321Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Inthisarticle,wediscusshow‘managerialist’and‘leaderist’discourses(O’Reillyand Reed Public Administration 88:960–978, 2010; Organization Studies 32:1079–1101, 2011) are drawn upon in the context of the deregulation of Swedish higher education. As of 2011, there has been new legislation that frames Swedish universities as ‘autonomous’ and transfers most of the regulative responsibilities from the government level to university vice-chancellors. The aim of this article is to inquire into how tensions within and between managerialist and leaderist discourse are handled in the promotion of New Public Management reforms and the conse- quences thereof in terms of how leadership in the higher education sector is constructed. We analyse how these discourses are employed in the core documents leading up to the 2010 Riksdag decision to enact most of the proposed deregulations, and the subsequent evaluation undertaken by the social democratic government that took over in 2014. Based in this analysis, we suggest that the texts indeed draw upon notions of leadership and leaders as necessary for Swedish universities to survive and thrive in the future, but that the envisaged practise of this ‘strong leadership’ can either be characterised as a discursive void or described in terms of de- personalised, instrumental managerial surveillance and control.

    Omgiven av instrumentalister: Har det akademiska medborgarskapet gått förlorat?2020Inngår i: Ledning, styrning och kontroll i högre utbildning / [ed] Mats Alvesson, Stefan Sveningsson, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2020Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna text diskuterar vi tendensen mot en ökad instrumentalism i ledning och utövning av akademisk verksamhet i det svenska högskolesystemet. Med instrumentalism avses en inställning till akademiskt arbete som bygger på individualism, konkurrens, prestationsmätning, kortsiktigt nyttoskapande och formell regelstyrning. Instrumentalismen är en konsekvens av de ökade ambitionerna att styra och effektivisera högskolan, men riskerar – om den får gå för långt – att i stället erodera högskolans kapacitet att leverera det som önskas. Den instrumentella styrningen är sällan sammanhållen eller långsiktig, och den driver fram en akademisk kultur där de anställda fokuserar på sina individuella karriärer och på att på papperet leverera mot diverse prestationsmått. Den bidrar också till en ledningskultur där regelverk, mätsystem och detaljstyrning står i fokus snarare än gemensamt ansvarstagande, kvalitetsutveckling och byggande av tillitsfulla arbetsmiljöer som stödjer kunskapsintensivt arbete. I förlängningen hotas inte bara kvaliteten utan även det akademiska arbetets attraktivitet och högskolans roll som särpräglad samhällsinstitution. Vi föreslår ett alternativt förhållningssätt – akademiskt medborgarskap – och ger exempel på hur akademins chefer kan arbeta med att stödja detta i vardagsarbetet, i termer av relationsdrivande, ansvarsdrivande och kvalitetsdrivande ledarskap.

    A Business Process Metadata Model for a Process Model Repository2010Inngår i: ENTERPRISE, BUSINESS-PROCESS AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS MODELING  / [ed] Bider I, Halpin T, Krogstie J, Nurcan S, Proper E, Schmidt R, Ukor R, 2010, Vol. 50, s. 287-300Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Today reuse of business process models is becoming increasingly important. One of the proven solutions for reusing business process models is the use. of repositories. Repositories should have process models and process metadata that can help users in searching, understanding, and interpreting process models. The purpose of this paper is to propose a Business Process Metadata Model (BPMM) that would facilitate a) locating process models, b) understanding and/or interpreting process models, and c) navigating a process model repository. In order to evaluate the BPMM, an empirical study is conducted to measure consistency and correctness of annotating business processes by using BPMM.

    William J. Baumol: An entrepreneurial economist on the economics of entrepreneurship2004Inngår i: Small Business Economics, ISSN 0921-898X, E-ISSN 1573-0913, Vol. 23, nr 1, s. 1-7Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    William J. Baumol is the 2003 winner of the International Award for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Research. Throughout his career Baumol has urged the profession to pay attention to the instrumental role of entrepreneurship in economic renewal and growth. At the same time he has insisted that economists continue to use their usual tool box when the purview of analysis is extended to entrepreneurship. Hence, Baumol can be characterized as a revolutionary from within. In this article we present and discuss Baumol's research contribution in the areas of entrepreneurship and small business economics, notably from a growth perspective. In addition to placing his work in these areas into the wider context of his full contribution, we emphasize Baumol's findings that growth cannot be explained by the accumulation of various factors of production per se; human creativity and productive entrepreneurship are needed to combine the inputs in profitable ways. As a result, an institutional environment that encourages productive entrepreneurship and human experimentation becomes the ultimate determinant of economic growth.

    Digital Inclusion on the Agenda: An analysis of the final stage of diffusion of electronic identification in Sweden2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    As digitalisation continues to spread, the impact technology has on society is evident. In Sweden, digitalisation has led to the end of analog options forcing individuals to rapidly adapt to new technologies. For this reason, the diffusion of electronic identification (eID) as a critical technology occurred at an accelerated rate. However, a segment of society remains without access to this innovation. In this study, qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with influential eID actors in Sweden to identify factors that impact the diffusion process, with a focus on late adoption. The result of this study shows that collaborations, accountability, biases, compatible technologies, and infrastructure technologies influence the spread of eID. These factors can be identified at an actor level but interact and consolidate on a system level. The above-mentioned findings have implications for innovation diffusion and digital divide theories as well as policy decisions regarding infrastructure technology and the practical requirements for adopting to eID.
