Abstract [en]

25 years ago, Christopher Hood made a substantial contribution to public administration research in his formulation of the concept New Public Management (NPM). In many ways, his article can be understood as an enabler of research focusing on public sector reforms. To this day, numerous articles and books have been published, discussing the concept itself and the empirical phenomenon. In celebration of this anniversary, this article revisits the current knowledge through a systematic literature review of 299 articles published between 1991 and 2016. This approach enables a meta-analysis of research published in five top-ranked international public administration journals. We identify four important themes as emerging from our review; (i) a reform with a vague intention, (ii) the limping concept, (iii) the one-sided perspective and (iv) NPM as the new norm. An important effect of this is that Hoods framework may have been curtailed, leading to a distorted knowledge-base when it comes to future studies.

Abstract [en]

A growing body of literature argues than an organizations management control needs to adapt as an organization changes business model or strategy in order for the management control to be consistent with the organizations objectives and strategies. Nevertheless, scepticism has been raised about the role of management controls in practice to promote sustainability or circular economy within organizations. Based on the management control framework of Malmi and Brown (2008), this paper explores empirically how organizations work with circular economy and how management control adapts to the business model. The results show that circular economy can be practiced in different ways and that adaptation and the application of circular economy affect the whole management control package. The paper identify the importance of cultural control and long range planning for communicating circular values and spreading a culture based on circular principles. However, irrespectively of what circular strategies that are used, circular work tends to steer the attention to the early phases of the product life cycle. For management controls this means that action plans, cost accounting, and investment appraisals must reflect a higher level of detail and a longer time horizon. The paper highlights how this is associated with challenges for traditional management controls.

Abstract [sv]

I den här texten diskuterar vi det begrepp som kommit att dyka upp mer och mer i såväl litteratur som i debatt: post-NPM. Vi vet av litteraturen att det handlar om något distinkt annorlunda från NPM, men det är ofta mer otydligt vad detta ’annorlunda’ egentligen är. Vi genomför en litteraturöversikt där vi beskriver fyra starka trender inom ramen för post-NPM: (1) New Public Governance, (2) Public Service Logic, (3) Public Value Management och (4) Digital-Era Governance. Syftet är att beskriva och analysera vad post-NPM är för något, hur det är annorlunda från NPM samt hur (eller om) det kommit att ta sig empiriskt uttryck i en svensk kontext.

Med förankring i såväl internationell litteratur som svensk empirisk kontext, drar vi slutsatserna att post-NPM erbjuder nya sätt att se på och förstå hur den offentliga välfärdsproduktionen ska erbjudas, vad som ska erbjudas och varför välfärdsproduktionen ska erbjudas på detta sätt. Även om post-NPM erbjuder många nya perspektiv, visar vi i den här texten på hur dessa kommit att vara starkt färgade av de dominerande NPM-uttrycken. Vi menar att där post-NPM kommit att erbjuda sådana nya perspektiv så har de i första hand handlat om en samhällsövergripande nivå, där diskussionen kommit att handla om organisering i första hand. När det istället handlar om styrning av verksamheter återfinner vi idéer som är tydligt sprungna ur NPM-reformer.

En slutsats kring detta är att är att NPM och post-NPM fokuserar på delvis olika nivåer och därför med fördel kan förstås som kompletterande snarare än konkurrerande begrepp. I likhet med annan litteratur på området, menar vi att NPM och post-NPM skulle kunna kombineras för att skapa en tydligare struktur för organisering av välfärdstjänster, samtidigt som vi vidmakthåller behovet och förmågan till styrning och ansvarsutkrävande. En sådan kombination skulle kunna medföra en mer inkluderande offentlig sektor, där offentliga resurser och kollektiva nyttigheter används smart och effektivt.

Abstract [sv]

Alla organisationer, oavsett bransch eller inriktning har behov av information för intern styrning. Även om informationsbehovet skiljer sig åt kan informationshanteringen uttryckas som en årlig process i form av planering, genomförande, uppföljning samt analys och åtgärder. Avsikten med denna bok är att visa hur internredovisningen stödjer skilda informationsbehov i styrningen mot uppsatta mål. Genom att gå igenom stereotyper av beslut som sker under ett verksamhetsår är syftet att ge läsaren förståelse för hur internredovisningen kan byggas upp samt utgöra underlag för olika analyser av en verksamhet.

About the Book

Innovations in management are becoming more numerous and diverse, and are appearing in organizations providing many different kinds of products and services. The purpose of this book is to examine whether some widely-promoted examples of these management innovations – ranging from techniques such as Kaizen to styles of leadership and the management of learning – can usefully be applied to organizations which provide healthcare, and applied in different kinds of health systems. Management Innovations for Healthcare Organizations is distinctive in selecting a wide and diverse range and selection of managerial innovations to examine. No less distinctively, it makes an adaptive, critical scrutiny of these innovations. Neither evangelist nor nihilist, the book instead considers how these innovations might be adapted for the specific task of providing healthcare. Where evidence on these points is available, the book outlines that too. Consequently the book takes an international approach, with contributions from Europe, the Middle East, Australia and North America. Each contributor is an expert in the management innovation which they present. This combination of features makes the book unique.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores the rise of an audit practice: the national quality registers in Swedish health care. Based on actor-network theory, the study tells the story of an actor-network formed by physicians in the 1970s who mobilized themselves around a common object; to develop the knowledge-base of medical professionals. However, over time more actors became persuaded of the potential of the network and associate themselves with it, resulting in reformed registers. The study shows how the network develops into a macro-actor, a Leviathan in health care, how this macro-actor comes to affect health care practices and how it contributes towards maintaining a new governance regime.
