    Can governments support both women and entrepreneurship?2014Ingår i: Diana International Research Conference 2014: Stockholm, June 15-17 2014, 2014Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Feminism in Sweden as well as in the other Scandinavian countries was largely formulated as state feminism. The women’s movement has cooperated with feminists in the state, resulting in societies that count as the most gender equal in the world. The Scandinavian countries are consistently ranked in the top position on international gender equality indices. The state has provided a large publicly financed welfare sector that both employs many women, and makes it possible to combine work and family through family friendly policies. The last decade has seen a political change influenced by neoliberal thought, in which politicians hand over welfare state responsibilities to the market, and instead encourage entrepreneurship, not least among women. The Swedish government has since 20 years back programs and policies to promote women’s entrepreneurship. The Swedish state has during the same period shrunk the public sector and privatized many operations in services and care, which traditionally employ many women. Instead, women are encouraged to start businesses in former public sectors. Empirical studies suggest however, that all of the increase of women’s entrepreneurship in these sectors is within low-paid, micro service businesses, typically child minding.

    Traditional state feminism has also changed character. Instead of public regulations, market solutions are advocated. In this paper we ask how to theorize this change from a feminist theory perspective; we ask what the implications for feminist action are, and we ask what consequences for women’s position in society are. We use research literature and policy texts as our empirical material and conduct a critical literature analysis. We conclude that the entrepreneurship discourse challenges, and possibly weakens state feminism and feminist action as we have known it in the Scandinavian countries, but may also offer new forms of feminist resistance, on market terms.

    From feminism to FemiInc.ism: On the uneasy relationship between feminism, entrepreneurship and the Nordic welfare state.2016Ingår i: The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal, ISSN 1554-7191, E-ISSN 1555-1938, Vol. 12, nr 2, s. 369-392Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Feminism in the Nordic countries was primarily formulated in terms of ‘state feminism’. The women’s movement cooperated with feminist government officials and politicians, resulting in societies that can be considered to be the most gender-equal societies in the world. Historically, the state provided for a large publicly-financed welfare sector which made it possible for many women to combine work and family through the state’s implementation of family-friendly policies, while simultaneously providing employment opportunities for many women. However, since the financial crisis of the 1990s, there has been a political change influenced by neo-liberal thought, in which politicians have handed over the welfare state’s responsibilities to the market, and, instead, the politicians have encouraged entrepreneurship, not least among women. Further to this development, there has been a change in emphasis from entrepreneurship (understood as starting and running a business) to entrepreneurialism which, in addition to a belief in the efficacy of market forces, also contains a social dimension where individuals are supposed to be flexible and exercise choice. In this article, we ask whether this entails a change in the feminist project in the Nordic countries, and if so, what the likely consequences are for this project, both in practice and in research. In order to answer this question, we reviewed existing Nordic research on women’s entrepreneurship and examined how this body of work conceptualizes entrepreneurship, gender, the state, and equality. We also considered whether any trends could be identified. We relate our findings to recent changes in government policy and conclude that the current discourse on entrepreneurship challenges, and possibly weakens, state feminism, but we also conclude that this discourse may also provide space for new forms of feminist action, in market terms. We coin the term FemInc.ism to denote feminist action through enterprise and we discuss a number of important challenges that research on this phenomenon is faced with.

    Will business ownership support gender equality?2012Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Current Swedish as well as international policy advocates an increase inwomen’s business ownership. The reasons center around economic growth:women start businesses at a lower rate than men, and are therefore seen asan untapped resource in stagnant economies. Busienss ownership is advo-cated as a viable alternative to unemployment. Women’s business owner-ship is further seen as instrumental in the neo-liberal transformation of thepublic sector, with privatization of former public commitments in educa-tion and care. In developing countries the arguments center around pov-erty alleviation – help to self-help is advocated. Feminist arguments suchas equal distribution of power and influence among men and women arelargely absent, and a discussion of the allocation of unpaid, domestic workbetween men and women is also absent. The discussion on entrepreneur-ship and the discussion on feminism seem to live side by side, with littleexchange between them. Neither feminist theory, nor extant entrepreneur-ship theory adequately account for feminist agency and activism within aglobalized market economy, in which discourses of entrepreneurship, in-novation and economic growth take precedence. Doing so would implychallenges of and developments of concepts like enterprise, gender, growth,competition, agency, feminist activism and gender equality. In this paperwe seek to bridge and combine feminist and entrepreneurship theories innew ways. We suggest a feminist theoretical understanding of current dis-courses, practices and policies regarding entrepreneurship and women’sentrepreneurship.

    Swedish welfare state retrenchment and the call for women’s entrepreneurship to fill the void2015Ingår i: The 4th European Conference on Politics and Gender 2015 June 11-13 Uppsala, Sweden, 2015, s. 1-19Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The last two decades have seen major welfare state retrenchment in Sweden. The public sector, which used to be a large and stable employer for women, was downsized. Public schools and public health and care services were privatized. Customer choice models were introduced. The rhetoric connected to privatization stressed the unique opportunities for women formerly employed by the state to start their own businesses in this sector, now open for competition and private initiatives. In this paper we ask what the results were. We discuss the results from a feminist perspective, i.e we ask if privatization and business ownership has improved women’s situation on the labor market, or not. The paper draws together the research findings from our own empirical research (about fifteen different studies) as well as from research done by other Nordic scholars in the field.

    Women's entrepreneurship, neoliberalism and economic justice in the postfeminist era: a discourse analysis of policy change in Sweden2018Ingår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 25, nr 5, s. 531-556Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the early 1990s, there has been investment in women's entrepreneurship policy (WEP) in Sweden, which continued until 2015. During the same period, Sweden assumed neoliberal policies that profoundly changed the position of women within the world of work and business. The goals for WEP changed as a result, from entrepreneurship as a way to create a more equal society, to the goal of unleashing women's entrepreneurial potential so they can contribute to economic growth. To better understand this shift we approach WEP as a neoliberal governmentality which offers women 'entrepreneurial' or 'postfeminist' subject positions. The analysis is inspired by political theorist Nancy Fraser who theorized the change as the displacement of socioeconomic redistribution in favour of cultural recognition, or identity politics. We use Fraser's concepts in a discourse analysis of Swedish WEP over two decades, identifying two distinct discourses and three discursive displacements. Whilst WEP initially gave precedence to a radical feminist discourse that called for women's collective action, this was replaced by a postfeminist neoliberal discourse that encouraged individual women to assume an entrepreneurial persona, start their own business, compete in the marketplace and contribute to economic growth. The result was the continued subordination of women business owners, but it also obscured or rendered structural problems/solutions, and collective feminist action, irrelevant.

    To play or not to play: that is the question: Entrepreneuring as gendered play2015Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 31, nr 2, s. 206-218Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    How can play be used to unravel the discourse of the gendered hero entrepreneur and instead describe mundane entrepreneuring? Further, how can the doing of gendered social orders be problematized when entrepreneuring is equated with play? In this article we answer these questions by engaging with the French social theorist Caillois’ (1961)conceptualization of play as being at the heart of all higher culture. Two ethnographic cases act as our vehicle in analysing play as entrepreneuring. From a rich description of these cases we find that it is not a question of playing or not playing, but about how to play. All four forms of play described by Caillois are present, which illustrates the variation of entrepreneuring and the richness of activities conducted in the ‘doing of entrepreneurship’. Further, both ways of playing discussed by Caillois are found. Whilst these two ways are interrelated on a continuum in the theory of play, they have been separated in entrepreneurship discourse, where they underpin the tendency to differentiate between the hero entrepreneur and ordinary people. Finally, we engage in a more interpretive and reflective discussion on entrepreneuring as performative acts through which social orders can be not only reproduced but also transformed.

    Sustainable working life development through interactive research2018Ingår i: PIN-C Conference Proccedings: 2018 Eskilstuna, Sweden, 2018, s. 1-5Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Interactive research has emerged as a new approach to collaborative research in working life research, and it is characterized by a continuous joint learning process between the researchers and the practitioners. In this paper we argue that interactive research is a way to advance scientific knowledge about the development of new types of work arrangements and development of sustainable working life. We present the basic ideas and benefits of the interactive research approach, illustrated through a practical case, the HELIX Competence Centre and discuss potential limitation and challenges associated with this form of collaborative research.

    Sustainable Development in Organizations: Studies on Innovative Practices2015Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    An increasingly competitive environment can lead to considerable problems for many organizations as they struggle to adapt to change. As a result, they fail to create the conditions that can lead to sustainable development over the long term, thus affecting the capabilities of employees. This book provides a fresh perspective on sustainable change and development in organizations, as well as a critical perspective on lean implementation, work environment and sustainability.

    The expert contributors address the development in, and of, organizations, as well as the development process between organizations, such as in networks or clusters. They discuss topics, such as the role of customers in the development of public organizations; developing knowledgeable practice at work; exploring evidence-based practice and the challenge of regional gender contracts.

    Undergraduates and postgraduates in different management fields including organizational theory, innovation, human resources, quality development and entrepreneurship will find this book to be of interest. The empirical results and interdisciplinary approach will appeal to practitioners and policy-makers at national, as well as international levels.

    Contextualising the coevolution of (dis)trust and control: a longitudinal case study of a public market2018Ingår i: Journal of Trust Research, ISSN 2151-5581, E-ISSN 2151-559X, Vol. 8, nr 2, s. 192-219Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Research into the dynamics of trust?control is still inconclusive. In this paper, we offer an in-depth understanding of how (dis)trust and control coevolve as embedded in multiple dimensions of context. The paper focuses on public markets, a context which is underrepresented in extant studies on trust and control. Our analysis is based on a longitudinal case study of interorganisational relationships (IOR) between boundary spanners representing purchaser and providers on a customer choice market for home care in a midsized municipality in Sweden. We identify, narrate and analyse critical incidents during seven years of the process. A conceptual framework contextualising the trust?control nexus of a public?private IOR is developed and utilised. We find that while the public?private IOR context requires control, control only enables deterrence trust from the municipal officers and only in individual providers. Interferential rather than symbiotic coevolution of trust and control is the dominating pattern. In addition, we find what we denote as mixed coevolution, where control simultaneously has positive and negative impact on trust. In our case in point, control enables trust in specific providers but this trust is not reciprocated due to experienced distrust on the category level.

    Abstract [en]

    Organizations are central to our way of organizing society and understanding the phenomenon of organizing within and between organizations is hence important. In this chapter we focus on dimensions of mobility in efforts at organizing within and between organizations as well as between sectors. It is argued that the public sector is a good place to start if one wants to capture facets of contemporary society, as an understanding of the changes taking place in the public sector is also a means of grasping the increasing hybridisation of organizations taking place also in private and third sectors. In our analysis we highlight examples of intraorganizational, interorganizational and intersectoral organizing and how mobility can be a tool and a goal, as well as a problem and a solution. When it comes to gender, however, the striking image is one of immobility rather than mobility.

    Abstract [en]

    Allying and expanding the diverse fields of entrepreneurship and sustainable development research is a modern day imperative. The Handbook of Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Development Research cuts through the different approaches and perspectives of the two fields to point the way ahead for research on sustainable entrepreneurship, outlining the motivation, intentions and impact of ecopreneurs in a local, national and global context.

    This Handbook paints an illuminating picture of the historic and current understanding of the bond between entrepreneurship and sustainable development. The authors explore the basic contradictions between the two fields and outline the transformative role entrepreneurship can play in achieving sustainable development. 45 expert researchers and their research communities from 16 countries across Europe, Africa, Australia and North America provide original and informative contributions on a variety of issues, from women’s empowerment to climate change and organic farmers to ecotourism.

    With current and authorative contributions spanning the globe, this Handbook will inspire researchers, teachers and policy-makers to compose their own understanding and contribution on the fast expanding field of entrepreneurship and sustainable development.

    Towards a gender aware understanding of innovation: a three-dimensional route2015Ingår i: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, E-ISSN 1756-6274, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 66-86Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this study is to discuss the theory of gender bias in innovation studies, to illustrate the gender bias of innovation studies by using empirical means and to suggest what is needed to reduce such bias. Previous studies on innovation have primarily focussed on male-dominated industries. These studies have been biased and hence unable to capture the range of innovations covered by theoretical definitions. 

    Design/methodology/approach - An innovation survey was conducted among entrepreneurs in the traditionally "female-labelled" health-care industry, avoiding the "male-labelled" concept of innovation itself in the questionnaire. The authors endeavoured to ascertain whether there is a significant difference between males and females in terms of innovativeness. Quantitative analyses were used to analyse the results and draw comparisons with an ordinary innovation survey. 

    Findings - Using a gender-aware operationalisation of innovation, no significant difference in innovativeness was found between men and women. This suggests that more attention is needed to correct the prevailing gender bias in innovation studies. A research model is presented to further understand the gender-biased operationalisations of innovation. Each of its three dimensions has a clear impact upon perceived innovativeness: the gender-label of the sector studied, the gender-neutrality of the operationalisation used in the study and the gender of the actors involved. All dimensions should be taken into account in future innovation studies that aim for gender neutrality. 

    Practical implications - Operationalisations for measuring innovations are usually biased. Therefore, women appear less innovative, which, in turn, leads to less visibility. 

    Originality/value - Gender perspectives are very seldom employed in innovation studies. In quantitative studies of this sort, it is even rarer. Our empirical evidence from the quantitative study shows the urgency of the need to broaden the concept both in academic, political and public debates. This is not the least for efficiency reasons in resource allocation and public policy.

    In the name of women?: Feminist readings of policies for women's entrepreneurship in Scandinavia2017Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 33, nr 1, s. 50-63Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Policy actors seeking to stimulate entrepreneurship sometimes give special attention to women. It is not given, however, that policy initiatives for women entrepreneurs necessarily contribute to gender equality, to social change for women - such as enhancing entrepreneurship as a means to women's wellbeing and financial or other independence - or to gendered change of society. We claim that the outcomes depend on the premises behind the policies. The purpose of this paper is to conduct an analysis of the feminist approaches that are taken in policies for women's entrepreneurship in the Scandinavian countries. We analyse how these policies argue for women's entrepreneurship, how they position women, and what assumptions they hold with respect to women and their businesses. We analyse and compare state-level polices that have been implemented by the national governments in three Scandinavian countries; Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, during the period 2005-2015. A comprehensive analytical tool, building on six different feminist theoretical approaches, is developed. We find that, even if a liberal feminist perspective is present, along with elements of other feminist approaches, polices give precedence to economic growth in a non-feminist fashion. Over time, economic growth becomes the key focus, while feminist approaches are silenced. We observe that, in the name of supporting women, the actual aim of policies for women entrepreneurs often seems to be economic growth, and women are seen merely as an untapped, and yet not fully adequate, resource.

    Resilient gender order in entrepreneurship: the case of Swedish welfare industries2015Ingår i: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, E-ISSN 1756-6274, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 2-26Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this article is to use quantitative empirical data to analyse the degree of resilience, as well as change or reproduction of the gender order, in the era of New Public Management. The propositions are constructed based on liberal- and socialist-feminist perspectives, and discussed in light of the empirical results.

    Design/methodology/approach

    We report from a longitudinal quantitative study of female-dominated welfare industries. Data, available from Statistics Sweden, include the total population of entrepreneurs available on the individual level. However, the level of analysis that was used in the study was in accordance with the industry level. Data were processed from an aggregated level to the most detailed level of classification.

    Findings

    The findings reveal resilience in the prevailing gender order. The order is being reproduced in the entrepreneurship context, in most of the industries that were studied.

    Practical implications

    The results may potentially have profound impact on entrepreneurship policy, equality policy and public sector restructuring.

    Originality/value

    This quantitative longitudinal study shows a complex pattern on the detailed industry level, which can be understood in terms of male gender labelling of entrepreneurship. The results thus support previous qualitative studies that have observed this phenomenon. Methodologically, this paper contributes to the field by showing that without breaking down the analysis into the different female-dominated industries on a five-digit level, the various results of the public sector reforms and the attendant gendered effects would not have been revealed.

    Kvinnors företagande i landsbygdskommuner med fokus på Småland och Öland: en kvantitativ kartläggning inom ramen för forskningsprojektet "Kvinnors företagande för en levande landsbygd"2018Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    En livskraftig landsbygd med tillgång till arbetskraft, arbetstillfällen och välfärdsservice är en aktuell samhällsfråga. Företagandets omfattning på landsbygden är en aspekt som kan ha betydelse för landsbygdskommunernas sårbarhet. Syftet med rapporten är att utveckla kunskap om kvinnors entreprenörskap på landsbygden, som kan ligga till grund för att stimulera landsbygdsutveckling, jämställdhet och vidare forskning, exempelvis genom kvalitativa forskningsmetoder.

    Med hjälp av en databasstudie beskrivs och analyseras omfattningen och karaktären av kvinnors företagande på landsbygden. Till viss del studeras också likheter och skillnader i företagandet mellan kvinnor födda i Sverige och kvinnor födda utomlands, samt mellan kvinnor och män.

    Företagandet är mer omfattande bland de sysselsatta kvinnorna på landsbygden än bland de sysselsatta kvinnorna i tätorterna. Skillnaderna i omfattningen av kvinnors företagande är små mellan olika typer av landsbygdskommuner – de som är avlägset belägna, mycket avlägset belägna eller belägna nära en större stad. Resultaten indikerar snarare att det är kommunernas företagskaraktär eller tradition av företagande som avgör andelen företagare per sysselsatta. Kartläggningen pekar mot att arbetslöshet kan vara ett incitament för företagande – något starkare för de utlandsfödda kvinnorna än för kvinnorna födda i Sverige. Skogsförvaltning och blandat jordbruk är bland de vanligaste näringsgrenarna för både kvinnor och män på landsbygden. I övrigt är dock företagandet mycket könssegregerat med avseende på bransch. De tio vanligaste näringsgrenarna för kvinnor och män skiljer sig markant åt. Kvinnors företag är mest representerade i Hår- och kroppsvård, Restaurangverksamhet, Redovisning och bokföring, Konsultverksamhet avseende företags organisation, Fysioterapeutisk verksamhet samt Litterärt och konstnärligt skapande. Mäns vanligaste näringsgrenar är mer relaterade till landsbygdens kontext av mark- och naturresurser. Kvinnors företag är små, 76 procent är soloföretag och lönsamheten varierar stort. De näringsgrenar där kvinnors företag redovisar högst lönsamhet är i de numerärt mansdominerade näringsgrenarna inom tillverkningsindustrin. Resultaten indikerar därmed könssegregering och hierarki med avseende på arbets- och resursfördelning.

    Kvinnor på landsbygden är mer benägna att vara företagare än anställda om de är gifta, har hemmavarande barn eller en utbildningsnivå lägre än den eftergymnasiala. Det kan tolkas som att företagandet är en lösning för att kombinera arbetsliv med ansvar för hem och barn. De företagande kvinnornas disponibla inkomster är i genomsnitt lägre än för kvinnor med anställning, för män som är företagare och för män med anställning. Att vara gift innebär för kvinnor en lägre disponibel inkomst, men för män en högre disponibel inkomst jämfört med att att inte vara gift. Resultaten visar dock att det inte är de individrelaterade faktorerna som mest bidrar till skillnader i disponibel inkomst, utan, näringsgren och antalet sysselsatta. Manligt könskodade näringsgrenar och stora företag ger högre inkomst. Den övergripande slutsatsen är att företagandet på landsbygden är traditionellt könssegregerat och hierarkiserat, i fråga om resursfördelning.

    A Nurse and a Civil Servant changing institutions: Entrepreneurial processes in different public sector organizations2008Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 24, nr 2, s. 113-124Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The notion that there is strong connection between the private sector and entrepreneurship has resulted in entrepreneurship in the public sector being neglected. This in turn leads to theoretical, practical and political shortcomings. The role of entrepreneurs as change agents is captured in the concept ‘institutional entrepreneurs’, but most studies focus on actors on the higher levels. This article sheds light on previously forgotten or ignored entrepreneurial processes, those taking place within the middle levels of the public sector, and which result in institutional change. We elaborate on the characteristics of the entrepreneurial processes and their prerequisites. The framework draws on the tension between entrepreneurship and the institutional context, and suggests a multi-level approach, drawing on insights from both entrepreneurship studies and new institutional theory. The cases highlight the importance of being able to create alliances and find sponsors to ensure freedom of action and grant legitimacy. The enabling and constraining aspects of the institutional context are illustrated and discussed.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det genussystem vi lever i behöver uppmärksammas tydligare för att kvinnor som entreprenörer ska få en rättvis chans och erkännande.

    De fall som vi har studerat stärker studier som pekar på att omvandlingarna inom den offentliga sektorn inte har lett till ökad jämställdhet mellan kvinnor och män. Genussystemet förefaller mycket livskraftigt och reproduceras på nya vägar. Men det kanske finns ”glipor i mönstret”. Och kanske kan företagandets könsstämpel ändras eller diversifieras?

    Masculinisation of the public sector: Local level studies of public sector outsourcing in elder care2010Ingår i: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, E-ISSN 1756-6274, Vol. 2, nr 1, s. 49-67Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The paper aims to explore the consequences of new public management (NPM) inspired reforms in general and outsourcing of traditional public sector responsibilities in Sweden to private organizations in particular. At centre stage are the roles of entrepreneurs, women-owned small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and socially constructed paradigms of gender in this process. The paper's aim is to explore, through a local-level case study, the currently ongoing process of gendering and regendering in a female-dominated sector. This is done by a qualitative real-time study of the introduction of a customer-choice system in elder care in a Swedish municipality.

    Design/methodology/approach – The formal decision in Spring 2008 to introduce a “customer-choice model” into home-based elderly care in the municipality is the formal starting point of the research. The authors are given full access to all relevant information and informants including all questions and suggestions from the potential suppliers who were applying to be “authorized and certified suppliers”. Interviews are the main method but also written material like applications and newspaper articles and “letters to the editor” are studied.

    Findings – The outcome of the changes are, from the decision-makers point of view, disappointing. The consequences so far of the customer-choice system, that have been examined here, can be labelled increased masculinism or even a masculinization of the elderly care sector. Whether the polarization is a presage of the process to come is too early to tell. If so, the masculinization observed in this paper extends along three dimensions: governing logic, leadership and ownership. These gender consequences are not those expected or intended by the leading local actors.

    Research limitations/implications – The study is made in an ongoing process. The politicians are making changes aiming at making better working conditions for SMEs and former employees especially women. It is therefore important to follow up what is going to happen in the future. Comparisons with other municipalities and other regimes, nationally and internationally, would also be valuable.

    Practical implications – In this case, the practical implications are, almost, the same as the research implications.

    Originality/value – The real-time research design is used focusing on what is happening in practise at the lower organizational levels of an organizational “experiment” of this kind make this paper unusual and valuable both for researchers and practioners.

    Pushed into Serial Entrepreneurship2011Ingår i: The 56th ICSB World Conference: Stockholm, Sweden 15th-18th of June 2011, 2011Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Entrepreneurs are talked of as “the heroes of our times” and more heroic than all others are the entrepreneurs who engage in more than one venture. This paper aims to advance entrepreneurship theory through showing empirically that serial entrepreneurship, or rather serial-startups, isn’t necessarily a deliberate choice. This is illustrated by three selected cases, which we have followed through longitudinal qualitative studies. Theoretically, our analysis has profound implications, since it questions the notion of start-ups as a measure of economic success of individuals, regions or nations. The paper also explores the previously understudied exit-part of the entrepreneurial process.

    Uppföljning av "Eget val" i hemtjänsten i Linköpings kommun: Utförarperspektiv2010Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande rapport redovisar resultaten från en studie i Linköpings kommun av införandet av Linköpingsmodellen för Eget val inom hemtjänsten ur ett utförarperspektiv. Beskrivningarna har strukturerats framförallt utifrån utförarens storlek, eftersom de små företagens problem och villkor i sammanhanget är särskilt viktiga. I sammanfattningen ges kortfattade svar på de frågor som ställs i berördanämnders beslut (Dnr An 2007 0015; Dnr Om 2007 0018). Frågorna är de som återfinns nedan.

    Utförarnas agerande, åsikter och erfarenheter av Eget val-modellen hänger samman med det basansvar som knutits till kommunens servicehus. Anledningen till att Linköpings kommun valde att enligt LOV upphandla basansvar var att skapa ett ”ickevalsalternativ”. Ickevalsalternativet skulle vara en utförare som kunde ge alla hemtjänstens insatser, det vill säga den som inte valde skulle alltså få sin hemtjänsts alla delar av en utförare. Servicelägenheter är ett särskilt boende. Kommunen har ansvar för hälso- och sjukvård i särskilt boende och ingår därför i basansvaret. Fördelningen av basansvaret, och hur den nuvarande situationen uppstod, är avgörande både för hur modellen fungerar och hur den upplevs. Reformerna kan ses som försök att skapa marknader. Marknadsbegreppet används därför i analysen.

    Att stödja kvinnors företagande: Lärdomar från projektet DISA2004Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Småföretagen har kommit att betraktas som allt viktigare för sysselsättning och tillväxt. Kvinnor driver företag i mindre utsträckning än män, men de skulle kunna svara för en stor andel av de nya företag som landet behöver (NUTEK, 2003). För att tillvarata den potential som finns är det viktigt att finna vägar att på bästa sätt stödja dessa ”företagerskor”. Denna studie tar sin utgångspunkt i ett riktat stödprojekt (DISA – långsiktig verksamhetsutveckling för kvinnliga företagare) som har drivits av ALMI Företagspartner i Östergötland AB. Tillsammans med Länsstyrelsen i Östergötland har de initierat projektet och denna studie. ALMI Östergötland har med detta velat vidareutveckla sitt och ALMI-koncernens arbete med kvinnors företagande.

    Det övergripande syftet med denna studie är att med DISA-projektet och dess aktörer som utgångspunkt diskutera och analysera hur insatser bör utformas och genomföras för att bäst stödja kvinnliga företagare. Frågor som behandlas är; vilket behov av stöd i sitt företagande de deltagande kvinnorna har, i vilken utsträckning DISA-projektet erbjuder detta stöd liksom vilka lärdomar man kan dra inför framtida insatser.

    DISA-projektet bestod av coachning kombinerat med seminarier. Företagarna fick träffa en personlig coach knappt en gång per månad under ett och ett halvt år, samt delta vid sex halvdagsseminarier. Den studie som gjorts av projektet är kvalitativ, och består bl a av intervjuer med deltagarna såväl i inledningsskedet som i avslutningsskedet av projektet. Under projektets gång har observationer gjorts under coachträffar och seminarier. I rapporten presenteras såväl coachernas som företagarnas reflektioner kring projektet på ett utförligt sätt.

    Studien har visat att förutom de problem och åtföljande stödbehov som känns igen från arbete med manliga företagare (tidsbrist, svårigheter att prioritera övergripande frågor, behov av ett externt bollplank, behov av kontakt med andra i samma situation) har många företagerskor gemensamma erfarenheter av ytterligare svårigheter som har att göra med genussystemet i samhället. Företagerskorna upplevs t ex som annorlunda i många sammanhang och tvingas ofta bevisa att de är bättre än sina manliga kollegor.

    DISA-projektet erbjuder framförallt genom den framgångsrika coachningen ett bra stöd för många av de svårigheter som företagerskorna möter. Företagarna menar att de har fått en ”spark i baken” att ta tag i övergripande frågor, och att de har fått struktur på sitt företag. Många av företagerskorna uttrycker emellertid ett stort behov av erfarenhetsutbyte och kontakt med andra personer i samma situation. Genom seminarierna har detta till viss del möjliggjorts i projektet, men denna komponent bör prioriteras högre i framtida insatser. De olika delarna i stödprojekt bör också integreras tydligt och bygga på samma genomtänkta pedagogik. Deltagarnas tankar kring att vara kvinna och företagare har inte förändrats under projektets gång. Vid rekrytering av deltagare är det viktigt att inte influeras av en manlig norm för vad som är ett företag med potential, samt att inkludera företag ur branscher där många kvinnor är verksamma.

    En viktig lärdom av denna studie är att företagerskor bör få hjälp att förstå och hantera de svårigheter i företagandet som härrör från genussystemet (köns-makt systemet) i samhället. Detta bör behandlas under ett inledande seminarium, och en medvetenhet om genussystemet bör fungera som en ”röd tråd” genom ett dylikt projekt. Företagsutvecklare som arbetar med kvinnors företagande bör få genomgå en mer omfattande genusutbildning än vad som varit fallet i DISA-projektet.

    Gendered small-business assistance: lessons from a Swedish project2007Ingår i: Journal of European Industrial Training, ISSN 0309-0590, E-ISSN 1758-7425, Vol. 31, nr 2, s. 84-99Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to deal with the design of small-business training programs and focuses on women business owners, their real needs and the supply of adequate training. How and to what extent are client selection and support needs influenced by the gender system?

    Design/methodology/approach – An in-depth study of an ambitious Swedish project is reported. Interviews with the participating business-owners and advisors, combined with observations during lectures and coaching sessions have been conducted.

    Findings – Even gender-conscious support organizations may have a biased process of client recruitment, leading to an unintended discrimination of women business owners. The women meet the same obstacles as men but also give witness to the subtle obstacles which originate in the gender-system.

    Research?limitations/implications – The study is qualitative and does not aim to provide statistically valid generalizations.

    Practical implications – Gender awareness of support organizations is crucial, in client selection as well as in designing programs and when coaching. These business owners need to understand the gender system in order to handle it more effectively. It is argued that special programs are still needed, even in a country like Sweden known for its relative equality between women and men.

    Originality/value – The context is interesting and the longitudinal in-depth approach brought the author unusually close to advisors and participants. It enabled an understanding of what happened over a short period of time in the minds of those involved, regarding sensitive issues.
