Titel: ​Styrning i all ära - ​En studie om strategi och ekonomistyrning i snabbväxande tjänsteföretag

Författare:​ Ida Aggerstam & Josefin Johansson

Examinator:​ Elin Funck

Handledare:​ Lise-Lotte Kans

Institution: ​Ekonomihögskolan vid Linnéuniversitetet i Växjö

Bakgrund och problem: ​Snabbväxande företag står för en stor del av den totala tillväxten i ekonomin och har stor betydelse för landets ekonomi. När tillväxten ökar i företag krävs en mer formaliserad ekonomistyrning. Vissa företag har en uttalad strategi medan andras strategi framgår i organisationens handlingar. Vissa forskare menar att snabbväxande företag bör använda sig av formell ekonomistyrning medan andra forskare menar att de bör använda sig av informell styrning.

Syfte: ​Syftet med studien är att få en djupare förståelse för strategi och ekonomistyrning i snabbväxande tjänsteföretag. Uppsatsen bidrar till att belysa likheter och skillnader i snabbväxande företags strategi och ekonomistyrning. Fokus i ekonomistyrningen ligger på formell- och informell styrning.

Metod: ​En kvalitativ komparativ flerfallsstudie med semistrukturerade intervjuer ligger till grund för det empiriska materialet. I studien har tre företag intervjuats vilka uppfyller kriterier för att vara snabbväxande tjänsteföretag.

Slutsats: ​Ett snabbväxande tjänsteföretags strategi kan vara uttalad och utformad av ledningen tillsammans med de anställda eller kan den framgå genom organisationens handlingar. Snabbväxande tjänsteföretags formella styrning är viktig för organisationens struktur, ansvarsfördelning, planering och kontroll medans deras informella styrning är viktig för de anställdas motivation, tillfredsställande arbetsuppgifter och organisationens personliga ledningsstil.

Title:​ Control in all respects - ​A study of strategy and management control in fast-growing service companies

Authors:​ Ida Aggerstam & Josefin Johansson

Examiner:​ Elin Funck

Supervisor:​ Lise-Lotte Kans

Institution:​ School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University in Växjö

Background and problem:​ Fast-growing companies account for a large part of the overall growth in the economy and are of major importance for the country's economy. As growth increases in companies, a more formalized management control is required. Some companies have a pronounced strategy while others' strategies are reflected in the organization's actions. Some researchers argue that fast-growing companies should use formal management control while other researchers argue that they should use informal management control.

Purpose: ​The purpose of the study is to gain a deeper understanding of strategy and management control in fast-growing service companies. The essay contributes to highlight similarities and differences in fast-growing companies strategy and management control. Focus in management control is on formal- and informal management control.

Method:​ A qualitative comparative multivariate study with semi-structured interviews forms the basis for empirical material. In the study, three companies have been interviewed that meet criteria for being fast-growing service companies.

Conclusion: ​A fast-growing service company's strategy may be pronounced and designed by management along with employees or may be reflected by the organization's actions. The formal management of fast-growing service companies is important for the organization's structure, division of responsibilities, planning and control while their informal management is important for employee motivation, satisfaction with duties and the organization's personal leadership style.
