    Big Data use in performance measurement and management: a call for action2016In: Journal of Business and Economics, ISSN 2155-7950, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 402-417Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Big Data is starting to permeate the field of performance measurement and management. With data being referred to as the “new oil of the 21st century” and organizations more and more striving for utilizing this to their advantage, the notion of Big Data has become a hallmark for the modern decision maker. We argue that albeit promising for performance measurement and management, there are several aspects that need to be addressed within research. This paper builds on a literature review of extant research, and, a case study, and raises issues that if left unchecked could have negative impacts on the field of performance measurement and management. Despite the many positive aspects associated with Big Data, there is a need for a sound, critical perspective. The findings are discussed in relation to the three Vs regarded as the core definition of Big Data (volume, variety and velocity) and illustrated by a case study.

    Held together by the bark: performance measurement and management as propagated by industry analysts2014In: International Journal of Business Performance Management, ISSN 1368-4892, E-ISSN 1741-5039, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 192-206Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore what is propagated as performance measurement and management (PMM) by industry analysts. The rationale for targeting industry analysts is that this group constitutes a previously largely overlooked actor within the supply of management ideas. The study utilises empirical material in the form of proprietary reports marketed and sold by one of the largest industry analyst firms, through a dual analysis of history and content. As the findings show, there is a rich plethora of PMM incarnations stemming from one particular industry analyst report. Utilising rhetorical analysis, this piece of research is found to be lacking in sound argumentation opening up for significant doubts in terms of the validity of the subsequent incarnations. These findings are discussed in terms of implications for both research and practice.

    AIS as a catalyst for change2022In: The Routledge handbook of accounting information systems / [ed] Erik Strauss, Martin Quinn, New York: Taylor & Francis, 2022, 2, p. 63-74Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern accounting information systems (AIS) can work as a catalyst for change if it is first understood how AIS have changed over time and which new challenges managers are facing when trying to benefit from the more advanced systems and what kind of change this may bring. Many of the opportunities that AIS offer are not fully learned until they change the way work is done in a permanent way. As such, organisational learning and organisational change are intertwined. A change in, e.g., how the management accounting function works can be facilitated by implementing a new AIS, especially if they free time for more advanced analyses. Analyses, decisions and actions are all possible through advanced digital initiatives in general, and a complex analysis of financial data in particular may contribute to a more productive business. More than ever, AIS constitute a system that can create the basis for an efficient business, drives renewal and makes a company profitable in the long run. In a way, advanced AIS have come to play a catalyst role, forcing the organisation to think through how operations are done and in what ways it could be improved to stay competitive.

    Asking the right question: the craft of formulating a purpose and an aim for a research paper2013In: International Journal of Business and Social Science, ISSN 2219-1933, E-ISSN 2219-6021, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 21-28Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    All research is more or less clearly based on a research question, an aim and/or a purpose. This research note tries to identify what characteristics research intention in papers that have a high citation have in common. The 25 most cited papers published in Accounting, Organization and Society from 2007 until spring 2012 were selected and analysed. The result shows that if one concept was studied it was from a more descriptive perspective while if two or more concepts were studied their relations was in focus. It also showed that specific words were used to signal ambition and intention. As a conclusion, in this paper basic questions with a normative character have been formulated with a purpose of helping authors in their initial struggle with the research problem. It was also recognized that in the majority of the studied papers there were no clear research question but rather a focus on arguing for an aim or a purpose.

    Digitalisation of enterprises brings new opportunities to traditional management control2017In: Business Systems Research Journal, ISSN 1847-8344, E-ISSN 1847-9375, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 115-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Advanced information systems have changed the way managers work with planning and performance measurement. Traditional management control concepts such as efficiency have changed in meaning due to these information systems.

    Objectives: The main purpose behind this paper is to try to understand how a new managerial context is shaped and re-shaped by new information systems that constitute a digital enterprise.

    Methods/Approach: Three different cases are presented and analysed.

    Results: The new managerial function of advanced information systems is presented through the three cases.

    Conclusions: The digitalisation debate and agenda need to develop an even deeper understanding of how digital initiatives affect organisations. This is possible by dealing with concepts such as the digital enterprise, which integrates digital technical solutions with organisational challenges and management control intent.

    How CFO's communicate financial information: a pedagogical task in theory and practice2013In: International Journal of Accounting and Financial Reporting, ISSN 2162-3082, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 162-181Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An important result when communicating is to gain a deeper understanding and that meaning is created by the reciever of that which is communicated by the transmitter. This can in a way be described as the core of the pedagogical communication. The premise of this study is that the pedagogical communication can be understood and explained by means of the financial reports (1), oral presentation (2), using concepts and illustrations (3) and by the social context, the group where the communication takes place (4). The theoretical areas that form the basis of the first question in this study, how the communication can be designed, are based on these four areas. In a second part 111 CFOs in Swedish municipalities responded, via a web-based questionnaire, how they work with these areas. The result shows that they are largely working with several of the pedagogical areas, such as in the financial reports and oral presentations but that there are also areas such as the social context and the group's importance in the pedagogical communication that are not as developed. Although much is already working well, there are areas that can be developed to get the pedagogical communication of financial information to work even better.

    Management Control: A Process that Creates Organizational Meaning2011In: Global Business and Management Research, ISSN 1947-5667, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 106-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The present article uses Checkland and Holwell’s (Checkland and Holwell, 1998) POM Model to describe how the workings of management control can be understood in a company.

    Design/methodology/approach - The model departs from employee’s wish to act in a meaningful way. From a data-rich surrounding, they select information to which they then attribute meaning in collaboration with other employees in the organization. This process of organizational unification around an interpretation forms the basis for decisions and actions that can be regarded as a process that creates organizational meaning. Interviews with three different organizations supply the data for three examples regarding how to describe this organizational sensemaking.

    Findings - The examples show that individuals in an organization can contribute to resulting meaningful actions. Their shared goals and values form the basis of interpretations of information and impressions collected by the organization’s employees can be described as a management control process.

    Originality/value - The meaning of the conceptmanagement control has varied over time. The original definition, in some respects normative, has been challenged in recent years in favour of a more behaviourist-oriented definition.

    The act of interpretation: accounting reports and management control action2012In: Business Management Dynamics, E-ISSN 2047-7031, Vol. 2, no 4, p. 30-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today management control systems of different kinds are important parts of managing any local or global organization. This paper seeks to understand how the act of interpreting accounting reports becomes an interface to management control actions. The empirical material consists of fieldwork and interviews with managers at different levels in four Swedish organizations. The findings show that through the process of interpreting accounting reports managers become more focused on purposeful actions. Modern organizations need to develop their ability to interpret accounting reports in order to use management control systems even better, increase the understanding of what is happening in the organization and consequently act more purposefully.

    The meaning and development of the concept of Management Control: an etymological study2012In: International Journal of Management, ISSN 0813-0183, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 476-491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyse how the concept of management control has been defined by researchers publishing in Accounting, Organizations and Society, from 1976 to 2003. A word may develop and change over time, mainly depending on the context in which it is being used. The social and cultural context affects the meaning and content of the word. Building on etymological theory, the original meaning and use of management control as a concept among researchers published in AOS, have been traced.  The findings show that though the concept has held different emphasis during the years, a common core may be distinguished, where the concept is used as a way to describe how managers and employees work with a system, i.e. goals, planning and control, which handles resources.

    Transforming environmental uncertainty to risk - managing risk and management control2015In: Global Business and Management Research, ISSN 1947-5667, E-ISSN 1947-5667, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 44-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Managers deal with environmental uncertainty and risk on an everyday basis, especially when it comes to making decisions and taking action. In order for a manager to be informed and to be able to take purposeful actions, he/she needs to translate and interpret what is going on in and around a business and by doing so make sense of the context. Management control, in its simplest form equivalent to planning and control, becomes a tool that can be used to manage environmental uncertainty and deal with a more specific risk. This paper comes from a larger study where management control as an organizational sense-making process was studied (Bredmar, 2011a).

    Design/methodology/approach: A multiple case based study was conducted in the main study and this paper focuses on how the CEOs in five organizations reflect on their own understanding of environmental uncertainty and risk.

    Findings: The findings show that from a theoretical perspective, risk is a small, well-defined part of a larger uncertainty. But from a practical perspective, uncertainty and risk are always there, in decisions and actions, however not that well defined.

    Research implications: Management control, in general, becomes a tool that helps in dealing with uncertainty and risk and by doing so also becomes a way to manage risk.

    Understanding management control and organisational sense-making2016 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book centres around three different areas; management control, organisations and information systems - in order to understand what is actually going on and to make sense of management control questions. Management control techniques used today could in many cases be traced back to industrialisation. With the help of computeraised information systems, the speed and detail with which a manager could get a hold of important information has increased. Today, it has become even more important to be able to choose what information to work with and that the context in which it should be used is understood. Organisational sense-making is in many ways an interesting and important path to take in order to do this. When working with the management control function, it is important to understand the organisation where the work is undertaken. One important part of the function is planning and another is control. Both are needed in order for the management control function to work. Performance is often a key ingredient when trying to find out what is working in a plan and what is not and here the understanding for information becomes necessary. Since the work is done within an organsation, both by managers and employees, it is also crucial to find ways to work with not only models, methods and techniques but also people and social dimensions. Key Features Managers and employees want to act in a meaningful way in general. The way planning and control is undertaken in an organization is to a large extent dependent on the way a manager interprets information about the organisation. Decisions and actions can be traced to the interpretation of a situation in the past and present. Since organisations are built on people, it is important to try to understand why they act in a certain way and how their understanding of the organsiation is evolving. Management control has in many ways been described as a function that is dependent on different techniques and methods; however, it can also be described as a social process, focusing on decisions and actions. Informations systems have come to play a crucial role in managing an organisation, especially when it comes to tracing performance. The demand for responsible and accountable management has led to an increased emphasis on meaningful decisions and actions.

    What about municipal strategic management and performance measurement2015In: Journal of Public Administration, Finance and Law, ISSN 2285-2204, Vol. Special Issue, no 2, p. 7-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this paper is to study how environmental uncertainty affects strategic priorities and to what extent the strategic priorities could be monitored through performance measures, within a Swedish municipal context. The findings show that in some areas, such as a budget in balance and cost control, there are traditional priorities and performance measures, whereas in other areas such as monitoring day-to-day improvements and growth and expansion, there is less support from performance measurement systems.

    Accounting Information Systems Implementation and Management Accounting Change2014In: Business Systems Research Journal, ISSN 1847-8344, E-ISSN 1847-9375, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 125-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There is an on-going discussion within management accounting research regarding how to work with performance measures. In the process of developing new forms of performance measurement the task of choosing business metrics is central. This process is closely connected to the implementation of IT solutions. 

    Objectives: In order to understand how new performance measurement solutions are implemented and used, it becomes crucial to understand how measures are selected and how new accounting information systems (AIS) are developed and implemented. 

    Methods/approach: The paper builds on the case of an on-going AIS project at a large, public university in Sweden. The empirical material was collected using a semi-action research approach over a two-year period. The majority of the material comes from written documentation and minutes. 

    Results: Even though the implementation of a new AIS triggers a change in the management accounting practice, this study shows that this is done in more than one perspective. 

    Conclusions: As the project develops, new priorities and objectives evolve, which in the end shape what management accounting change becomes.

    The Intertwined Functions of Advanced Information Systems and Management Control Practice in a Municipal Context2021In: Business Systems Research Journal, ISSN 1847-8344, E-ISSN 1847-9375, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 160-171Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Advanced, integrated information systems such as an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system have nowadays come to play such a crucial role for organizations and functions such as management accounting and control that in many cases, they would not function without the support of these systems. Public sector operations in general and municipal operations, in particular, are complex and require a lot of resources. Because of this, the managers working within this context need the support of advanced information systems to a large extent.

    Objectives: This paper aims at understanding how these new systems and their users, accountants, and controllers, perceive the opportunities they bring in a municipal setting.

    Methods/Approach: Out of 290 Swedish municipalities, 97 participated in the survey. Results: The results show that these systems have come to play an important part in working with management accounting and control issues.

    Conclusions: One conclusion that could be drawn from this study is that information supported by advanced information systems has become such an important necessity that management accounting as a function or phenomenon would not work without it. Therefore, the interdependency between information systems and management accounting and control practice could be described as intertwined.

    CSR and the quest for profitability: using Economic Value Added to trace profitability2012In: International Journal of Economics and Management Sciences, ISSN 2162-6359, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 43-54Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Management scholars have for a long time disagreed on whether or not there is a correlation betweenCorporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and profitability. One of the reasons behind the disagreement is thecomplexity in measuring CSR. Some scholars however claim that Economic Value Added (EVA) is an indicatorthat can be used to measure the correlation between CSR and profitability. The goal of our study is to find out ifthere is any correlation between CSR and profitability. The empirical data consists of interviews withrespondents from five companies and the calculation of the selected companies EVA-value from historicalfinancial statements. The EVA shows a low positive correlation between profitability and CSR. But previousresearch and the practical examples from the selected companies show a strong positive correlation betweenCSR and profitability.

    Digital kompetens och spetskompetens i Kronoberg: En delrapport inom projektet – behovsanalys2022Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns idag en ökad efterfrågan på både den lite bredare digitala kompetensen och den mer specifika digitala spetskompetensen. Detta gäller i princip alla branscher och arbetsmarknader, men på olika sätt. Bristen på digital kompetens kan leda till att ett företags tillväxt och innovationskraft hämmas. Sverige anses ligga långt fram, men eftersom den internationella konkurrensen är hård behövs olika initiativ för att behålla positionen, samtidigt som behoven av digital kompetens spås öka ytterligare de kommande åren när nya teknologier likt AI får allt större genomslag. Den digitala kompetensen är alltså en strategisk faktor för ekonomisk tillväxt, medan begränsad digital kompetens är ett av flera hinder för digital transformation. I detta projekt har vi analyserat behov av digital kompetens och spetskompetens bland regionala små och medelstora företag för att hitta en väg framåt och säkerställa långsiktig kompetens.

    Changing the game - financial crisis, the Swedish financial supervisory authority and reward systems in Swedish banks2013In: International Journal of Finance and Accounting, ISSN 2168-4812, E-ISSN 2168-4820, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 24-29Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As a consequence of the financial crisis new regulations initiated by organizations such as the Committee of European Banking Supervisors were imposed. The regulation aims to create a stable financial system where compensation is based on longer term with lower risk structure as a result. This paper describes how Sweden’s four largest banks have worked with the implementation of the regulation, especially when it comes to reward systems. Since the aim of the paper is to understand how the banks worked with the implementation semi-structured interviews were conducted with leading HRM managers in the banks. Written documentations and news material was also a part of the empirical material. Findings show that the majority of banks welcomed the regulation itself and in some cases the reward systems have been changed, especially when it comes to monetary incentives. Banks that previously had problems with short-term thinking has been positively affected by the changes, while banks that previously worked in accordance with the long-term thinking and low risk structure, have been affected to a lesser extent. One major conclusion is that the regulations are needed in order to handle risk management levels.

    Digitala möjligheter & företagets verklighet2020Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Erfarenhet visar att nyttan med en digital satsning, framförallt om det handlar om att ändra ett arbetssätt, i stor utsträckning påverkas av det sätt man är van att arbeta. I denna rapport presenteras insikter från den digitala vardag företag i Region Kalmar län befinner sig i. Vår förhoppning är att innehållet ska inspirera till reflektion och nya perspektiv för en framgångsrik digital transformation.

    Rapporten är en del i en rapportserie med syfte att underlätta förståelse, öka kunskap och inspirera till handling när det gäller företagets digitala transformation. Resultaten som presenteras i rapporterna är hämtade från de olika studier som pågår i projektet REDIT (regional digital transformation). REDIT är ett initiativ finansierat av EU´s regionala utvecklingsfond, Region Kalmar län och Linnéuniversitetet. Projektet pågår under tre år och är tänkt att bidra med kunskap kring hur små och medelstora företag kan dra nytta av digitalisering för ökad konkurrenskraft.

    Företagets digitala avtryck2021Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Erfarenhet visar att förväntningar på företag att interagera digitalt med sin omgivning har ökat i takt med den digitala utvecklingen. Samtidigt har möjligheterna att kommunicera med, och skapa engagemang bland, företagets kunder troligen aldrig varit så goda som nu. 

    För att bättre förstå hur företag i Region Kalmar län drar nytta av sin digitala närvaro och sitt digitala engagemang, har vi i denna rapport försökt fånga företags digital avtryck. Vår förhoppning är att innehållet ska inspirera till reflektion och nya perspektiv för en framgångsrik digital transformation.

    Rapporten är en del i en rapportserie med syfte att underlätta förståelse, öka kunskap och inspirera till handling när det gäller företagets digitala transformation. Resultaten som presenteras i rapporterna är hämtade från de olika studier som pågår i projektet REDIT (regional digital transformation).

    Företagets digitala katalysatorer2021Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    När företagare som driver små och medelstora företag möter regionala aktörer som arbetar med att stimulera digitalisering skapas förutsättningar för digital transformation. I mötet skapas något som kan liknas vid en kemisk reaktion, där olika förutsättningar som till en början kan uppfattas som abstrakta visioner i senare skeden blir konkreta handlingar i företagens verksamheter. 

    Denna rapport handlar om dessa aktörer som fungerar som katalysatorer och deras förmåga att möte det uttalade och outtalade behovet av digitalisering. Rapporen bygger på samtal med ett tiotal aktörer som på olika sätt har engagerat sig i arbetet med att digitalisera små och medelstora företag. Gemensamt för de olika aktörerna är att de vill stimulera en utveckling. Samtalen med dessa aktörer har gett en bra bild av både de möjligheter men också de utmaningar som regional digitalisering som fenomen och företeelse står inför. 

    Rapporten är en del i en rapportserie med syfte att underlätta förståelse, öka kunskap och inspirera till handling när det gäller företagets digitala transformation. REDIT, Regional Digital Transformation, är ett initiativ finansierat av EU´s regionala utvecklingsfond, Region Kalmar län och Linnéuniversitetet. Projektet pågår under tre år och är tänkt att bidra med kunskap kring hur små och medelstora företag kan dra nytta av digitalisering för ökad konkurrenskraft.
