    When appreciative inquiry guides action research: collaborating to improve waste sorting2019Ingår i: Applied Environmental Education and Communication, ISSN 1533-015X, E-ISSN 1533-0389Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During a project focusing on household waste a collaborativeapproach was deemed necessary. Researchers and stakeholderswent through a series of workshops starting and endingwith an appreciative inquiry which directed the ongoingaction research process. This article discusses this process andpresents a model for this methodology. Envisioning the resultsfrom the outset aided the collaborators’ action. Further, theworkshop series formed a collaborative forum in which to discussprogress and issues that occurred during the process.Appreciative inquiry aided the collaborators and provided astarting and end point for the action research process.

    The “Tango Argentino”: a metaphor for understanding effectuation processes2019Ingår i: Journal of Management Inquiry, ISSN 1056-4926, E-ISSN 1552-6542Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The authors use the analogy of the Argentine Tango to illuminate entrepreneurial effectuation as a process of becoming. Drawing on the metaphor of dance, the authors highlight seven areas for theory development that could further a performative theory of effectuation. These include the study of the micro-level movement and flow in the dance as “intimate steps,” and understanding the interplay between entrepreneur and ecosystem as “contextual rhythms.” They further propose that the study of changing leadership in the dance could illuminate how causal processes “become” effectual and suggest a concept of “attunement” to consider how inexperienced entrepreneurs learn contextual rhythms and, therefore, benefit for effectuation processes. Finally, they posit that the intimate steps leading to creativity in the dance relative to different levels of proximity and distance between the dancers should be understood alongside the movements and flows through which dancers maintain their individuality during such intimate movements and flows.

    A good man is hard to find: project management, entrepreneurship and serendipity2019Ingår i: International Journal of Managing Projects in Business/Emerald, ISSN 1753-8378, E-ISSN 1753-8386Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper commentary is to explore the intersection of project management and entrepreneurship through a poetic exploration of Flannery O’Connor’s short story: “A Good Man is Hard to Find.” Through the use of the Japanese Haiku format, this commentary probes the nature and meaning of “projects,” the importance of goals and their limitations, the influence of context across time, and the role of agency and circumstance in entrepreneurship as denoted by the idea of serendipity.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Poesis.

    Findings

    Imagination steers the course. Vision sees the possibility; But the mind’s eye sees through a distorted lens that is always misfit. So the unplanned path becomes the project. Always; Accidents happen.

    Originality/value

    Project Management: Goals with temporary; Collective action; Entrepreneurship: “Organizing collective Action.” Compromise?

    Coloured Plastic Bags for Kerbside Collection of Waste from Households - To Improve Waste Recycling2019Ingår i: Recycling, E-ISSN 2313-4321, Vol. 4, nr 2, s. 1-10Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, considerable amounts of resources are landfilled or incinerated, and recyclable materials such as metal, glass, plastic, and paper are disposed of as residual waste instead of being sorted into recyclable fractions. Recycling is one way of transitioning towards a circular economy and a more resource-efficient society. However, in many older cities there is insufficient space for waste bins, which makes waste sorting difficult. The aim of the study was to test how the introduction of a new kerbside collection system, using different-coloured plastic bags, would influence the amounts of residual waste and separately collected food waste. Coloured plastic bags were introduced in an old city centre in Kalmar, in the southeast of Sweden. This type of kerbside collection was applied to 38 apartments with a total of 87 residents for four weeks. Results show that residual waste decreased directly by 15 percent and the collected amount of food waste increased directly by 35 percent. The residents perceived that the sorting system facilitated sorting and that the sorting of recyclable materials increased. Kerbside collection, close to properties, seemed to be an important factor in reducing the amount of residual waste, leading to increased sorting, and hence improved recycling.

    Contextualizing Sustainability in Water Project Management: The Case of Bugesera District, Rwanda2019Ingår i: Economic Studies in Inequality, Social Exclusion and Well-Being, Springer , 2019, s. 277-306Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores sustainability in water project management following a contextual approach. It relies on an exploratory case study with interviews and field visits to three water project sites in Bugesera district in Rwanda. The results show that water project management includes aspects of social, cultural, environmental and economic sustainability driven by a compliant organization logic. This implies that the water project’s management is steered by existing policies, regulations and procedures. Cultural sustainability in particular is important for capturing contextual practices in the project delivery process, such as Umuganda meetings and committees. Such practices allow the inclusion of the local community by identifying their water needs, defining their benefits and conveying project ownership to them. This study proposes a model following a contextual approach to sustainability in water project management. The model is useful for identifying new contextual/empirical phenomena and for advancing theory. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.

    Developing and sustaining new regional industrial paths: investigating the role of ‘outsiders’ and factors shaping long-term trajectories2019Ingår i: Industry and Innovation, ISSN 1366-2716, E-ISSN 1469-8390, Vol. 26, nr 7, s. 795-819Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article casts light on the development of new regional industrial paths. We explore factors explaining why regional industries with similar early path development trajectories may exhibit diverging outcomes in the longer run and pay particular attention to the role of ‘outsiders’ in the initiation and further development of regional industrial paths. Drawing on a comparative case study of IT industries in Linköping and Karlskrona, two medium-sized Swedish city regions, we find that the inflow of outsiders was an important driver of early path development processes. However, we find that the interplay between regional preconditions and arriving outsiders, and between outsiders and existing actors, substantially shaped the long-term sustainability of the industrial paths in our study. In particular, the role of agency in fostering positive self-reinforcing mechanisms and structure–agency dynamics are highlighted as key factors for understanding how new industrial development paths are unfolding in the longer term. © 2018, © 2018 The Author(s).

    Put your style at stake: a new use of sustainable entrepreneurship2018Ingår i: Organization Studies, ISSN 0170-8406, E-ISSN 1741-3044, Vol. 39, nr 2-3, s. 397-415Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article uses the concept of style to rethink sustainable entrepreneurship. Our point of departure is the conceptual distinction between organization as style made durable and entrepreneurship as the disruption of style. We show that style is not simply an aesthetic category, but rather what ties different social practices together. While organization makes the connections between social practices durable, entrepreneurship disrupts such patterns. We further elucidate how organization and entrepreneurship are two intermingled processes – those of durability and disruption – that together enable the creation of new styles. In order to conceptualize this creative process, we explore how play can create disharmonies within the organization, but we also maintain that any new practice will remain marginal without a collective assemblage capable of adopting it. On this basis, we argue that sustainable entrepreneurship consists of making an environmentally friendly and socially conscious style durable, but also of disrupting such a style. In order to illustrate our argument, we use the example of the sustainable smartphone producer Fairphone. In conclusion, we argue that the concept of style may strengthen the dialogue between entrepreneurship studies and organization studies.

    Learning "who we are" by doing: processes of co-constructing prosocial identities in community-based enterprises2018Ingår i: Journal of Business Venturing, ISSN 0883-9026, E-ISSN 1873-2003, Vol. 33, nr 5, s. 603-622Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how members in community-based enterprises (CBEs) engage in processes of co-constructing their collective prosocial identities. Based on an inductive analysis of 27 organizations that were formed explicitly as communities and sought to build alternative forms of production and consumption through innovative ways to pool and recombine resources, we found that all of the CBEs engaged in distributed experimentation that lead to epiphany sense-making. These two approaches triggered and enacted collective processes of shifts in identity or identity persistence. We advance a processual model that identifies approaches for how members of CBEs either embrace epiphanies in identity shifts or limit and react to epiphanies in identity persistence.

    Formandet av den entreprenöriella läraren: Entreprenöriellt lärande som styrningsteknologi2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to, from a governing perspective, describe and enhance the understanding of the form entrepreneurial learning takes in lower and upper secondary schools’ practice, and its effects in terms of which approaches and practices are strengthened and marginalized. The context of this thesis is the industrial policy work to implement entrepreneurship in the Swedish educational system in 1996–2009. Industrial policy with its objectives concerning more companies and an entrepreneurial citizen is pervaded by expectations of the impacts of entrepreneurship. Discussing entrepreneurial learning as a governing tech­nology, based on Rose's development of Foucault's concept govern­mentality, provides a distance from these expectations and put productive power and complexity into focus. The governing perspective allows for the visualization of how an educational concept in entrepreneurial learning contributes to hierarchies of what is considered valuable but also how the fostering of the entrepreneurial citizen is made possible.

    I have followed three regional projects aimed at supporting teachers to implement entrepreneurship in their teaching practice. The analysed material includes observations of teacher training in entrepreneurial learning, inter­views with participating teachers and principals, as well as project documents, policy documents and entrepreneurship research.

    This thesis contributes to 'governing research' which use governmentality to understand entrepreneurship related to education. I show how entrepreneurial learning affects teachers’ subjectivities, how they should be and act, through the production of the entrepreneurial teacher, and what ways to be as a teacher this governing technology marginalizes. I also show how an educational concept in entrepreneurial learning enables governing at a distance by creating links between policy, entrepreneurship research, and teachers. These links contribute to teachers embracing entrepreneurial learning, and thus engaging in the fostering of the entrepreneurial citizen. By making visible the complexity of the entrepreneurial teacher and show the three subjectivities this ‘teacher’ offers: the collaborating, the flexible and the individual forming teacher, and the teachers marginalized: the supporting teacher and the autonomous subject teacher, this thesis contributes to a language to talk about how teachers are governed through entrepreneurial learning and its effects.

    Down to earth: from environmental abstraction to action using interactive research2018Ingår i: PIN-C 2018 Conference Proceedings, Syddansk Universitet, 2018, s. 338-344Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary knowledge production is characterised by the inclusion of a multitude of participants in the research process. Considering environmental issues this is also necessary to be able to reach solutions to these issues. This paper discusses three cases of cross-sector collaboration where interactive research was used. It was shown that interactive research can facilitate the interaction between the abstract issue in the research system and actual action in the research system. This was mainly done by creating collaborative spaces in the form of dialogue arenas which are discussion forums initiated by the interactive researcher. Here the abstract issue can be discussed on a level of practice which makes it easier to comprehend and paves the road for action among the participants.

    Partnerships for work place learning in work integrating social enterprizes2018Ingår i: PIN-C 2018 Conference Proceedings, Syddansk Universitet, 2018, s. 29-35Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper the case of a multi-sector partnership with the aim of improving work place learning in Work Integration Social Enterprises is presented. Work Place Learning (WPL) is a concept that connects institutions of education with work places in the surrounding society. Typical examples are when students during their formal education do periods of internships or vocational training in an organization of relevance to their future profession, or when teachers perform curricular activities atwork sites in the community. The two examples illustrate that the “learners” in work place learning could be both students in the educational system and employees at the work sites. Typical and common characteristics for different initiatives related to WPL is that; 1) it is built upon an ambition to combine theoretical knowledge with practice, 2) work-places are seen as important arenas for learning and 3) it is performed in partnerships between heterogeneous actors, often representing different sectors in society. This paper specifically focuses upon the partnership dimension of workplace learning.

    Infinitely Demanding Entrepreneurship2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In both the study and the practice of entrepreneurship, the phenomenon of entrepreneurship is recurrently put forward as a key, or even the key, to resolving many of today’s social, ecological, and economic challenges. However, research shows that entrepreneurs who pursue social change risk overlooking or excluding certain worldviews, values, and ways of living. This thesis examines how entrepreneurial practices can create responsible social change. The study draws on ethnographic work and explores a new initiative launched by the Swedish furniture company IKEA – IKEA’s Partnership with Social Entrepreneurs. The aim of the initiative is to start collaborations with social entrepreneurs around the world, and to support their social change work, particularly when it comes to empowering women. The thesis further sheds new light on ethical and political aspects of entrepreneurship by using the insights and concepts of philosopher Simon Critchley.       

    The thesis comes to four main conclusions. First, the study shows that the pursuit of social change requires that a variety of, sometimes contradictory, practices be performed. Second, the study shows that this particular change work and initiative have the positive and responsible outcome of generating a multiplicity of new autonomous spaces that enable the women involved to live more worthwhile lives. Third, the study shows that creating responsible social change is ‘infinitely demanding’ because responding responsibly to another person’s desires and strivings is tremendously challenging, and the number of people to which one can respond is similarly overwhelming. Fourth, the study shows that the complexity of creating responsible social change can be handled through the practices of a faithless faith (i.e., fidelity to a lived subjective commitment) and humour (i.e., the humorous acknowledgment and acceptance of one’s limits as a human being). 

    The major contribution of this thesis is that it enriches our understanding of how entrepreneurial practices can accomplish responsible social change. The main theoretical contribution and thrust of the thesis is then the concept of infinitely demanding entrepreneurship, a notion centred on the suggestion that this form of entrepreneurial practice is driven by committed, responsible, and ethically and politically attentive actors and thus might lead to the creation of responsible social change. Infinitely demanding entrepreneurship has at least five facets: (1) its main aim is to be for the other person and to acknowledge and respect her otherness; (2) there is an attentiveness to the limitations of the specific situation, which encourages people to keep pushing to do more; (3) a plurality of competing ethical and political demands are acknowledged and handled; (4) there is an awareness that a variety of practices have to be carried out and a multiplicity of objectives met, including economic, social, and environmental ones; and (5) the practices of a faithless faith and humour enable these actors to cope with the infinitely demanding situation of trying to create responsible social change.  

    Infinitely demanding entrepreneurship is an argument that breaks with research suggesting that practicing entrepreneurship is a rather easy means of solving societal issues. However, infinitely demanding entrepreneurship is also an argument that contradicts research that views entrepreneurship as the actual villain of today’s problems. Instead pointing out that entrepreneurial practices can create responsible social change, but that succeeding in this endeavour is ‘infinitely demanding’ for the involved and committed people who engage in such practices.

    Avtryck: kulturentreprenörer, konsthallar och mecenater2018 (uppl. 1)Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur grundades till exempel Fotografiska, Alma Löv eller Vandalorum? Vilka drivkrafter har kulturentreprenörerna bakom privata konsthallar? Och varför blir de allt fler? I en unik undersökning har forskarna Lars Lindkvist och David Calås intervjuat initiativtagarna till 18 nya konsthallar och muséer, från Tornedalen i norr till Wanås i söder. Gemensamt för entreprenörerna är att de likt äldre tiders mecenater tillför privat kapital i konst- och kulturverksamhet. Det handlar också om självförverkligande och en livsstil, en stark önskan om att göra avtryck och att ge tillbaka till samhället. Men hur kommer framtiden att se ut? Berättelserna visar på vikten av att svensk kulturpolitik skapar bättre förutsättningar för privata och ideella kultursatsningar.

    Logic matters: A meta-theoretical analysis of the entrepreneur2018Ingår i: Academy of Management Annual Meeting Proceedings / [ed] Guclu Atinc, Academy of Management , 2018, Vol. 1, artikel-id 18011Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper responds to calls for aligning our investigations with a fundamental concern for truth and objectivity through a meta-theoretical analysis of “the question of the entrepreneur”, viz., what explains the empirical puzzle that it is only some and not others to act entrepreneurially under similar conditions. While many entrepreneurship scholars search for the unique constitution of entrepreneurs, a growing contingent of scholars attributes this research enterprise to non-rational factors, such as ideological motives. Our analysis demonstrates that both approaches are logically unwarranted and emerge out of an unreflective engagement with the core puzzle. The mainstream view that entrepreneurs are fundamentally different from non-entrepreneurs emerges as an unreflective solution of the puzzle. Meta-theoretical reflexivity suggests that we already have a more plausible explanation: it is not anyone to exercise a widely held potential because prior to their successful exploitation opportunities are not seen uniformly as real opportunities. We do not need to find some well-hiding “entrepreneurial gene” in order to solve the puzzle; rather, we need to understand how we tend to lose sight of rather commonsensical insights in moments of academic abstraction. Having criticized the puzzle-solving process of mainstream research, we also criticize anti-mainstream critiques for failing to engage constructively with the empirical puzzle. We underscore that valid critiques require that we first engage thoroughly with the reasoning processes underlying a research practice, instead of being dogmatically dismissive – let alone accuse scholarly communities for being ideologically motivated. This study carries a further message of interest to the broader management studies community: closer attention to seemingly “trivial” logical subtleties reveals that we may need novel discoveries less often than we conventionally presume.

    On vulnerability and possibility in critical entrepreneurship education: mutual learning between students and teachers2018Ingår i: Revitalizing entrepreneurship education: adopting a critical approach in the classroom / [ed] Karin Berglund & Karen Verduyn, Routledge, 2018, s. 211-227Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Every time we go in to teach we take a deep breath before entering the classroom and remind ourselves that one or two students in there are likely to know more about the subject than we do. This could be because of their previous experiences and knowledge, or because their gaze from the outside is sharper than ours. At times this exposure of our vulnerability is intimidating for us - we want to be “good”, knowledgeable teachers who make a real contribution. At other times we see outstanding students as a resource and a source of inspiration. Which interpretation comes more naturally depends, we think, on how secure we feel on the topic, but also on how the students function as a group - whether they are defensive and competitive, or curious and willing to share their learnings. In this chapter we will report on a course in which the latter state emerged, and we will suggest that it is precisely because of the presence of those outstanding students that we, as teachers, have the opportunity to learn and develop our courses. We will also suggest that a similar logic of seeing the encounter with others as an opportunity for development can, and should, be incorporated into the teaching of entrepreneurship - not least because entrepreneurship is often circumscribed as creative, curious and open-minded, as an activity to explore new paths or disclose “new worlds” (Spinosa et al., 1999).

    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.

    Building a Circular Economy: How to Solve the Mixed Waste Problem at Company Level2018Ingår i: Solutions Journal, ISSN 2154-0896, E-ISSN 2154-0926, Vol. 9, nr 1Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Countries all over the world need resources to run their economies and an approach known as ‘circular economy’ can be key to managing such resources sustainably. From a circular economy perspective, countries should strive to reduce the amount of resources they need, followed by reuse and recycling. The largest part of waste in the European Union (EU) is produced by industries and businesses (about 90 percent) although most of the policy effort by public institutions has been on  municipal waste, mainly from households.1 Against this backdrop, a two-year regional project in Sweden focused on how to increase the recycling of waste generated by companies, particularly mixed waste. It was shown that recycling could be improved through relatively simple behavioural changes. The project identified six factors that can lead to improved recycling: legislation, leadership, networking, education, simplification and space. The findings indicate that such results can be best achieved through networking and collaboration.

    When rivers go to court: The Anthropocene in organization studies through the lens of Jacques Ranciere2018Ingår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 25, nr 4, s. 517-532Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The overarching purpose of this article is to add to the theorization of the Anthropocene in organization studies by investigating how long-term planetary concerns can be better accounted for in organizing. To do so, the article draws on the scholarship of Jacques Ranciere to show how the dichotomy of nature and culture shapes the dominant framings of organizing, and to outline premises for artistic, scholarly and political interventions into the status quo that could aid the process of making our entanglements with the geo-biophysical politically viable. The article concludes that the Anthropocene can add to a renewal of organizational and political decision-making processes through a radical rethinking of the liberal humanist separation of nature and culture and related concepts such as democracy and political subjecthood.

    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.

    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.

    "And now I'm free': Women's empowerment and emancipation through entrepreneurship in Saudi Arabia and Sweden2018Ingår i: Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, ISSN 0898-5626, E-ISSN 1464-5114, Vol. 30, nr 7-8, s. 877-900Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Critical perspectives have called for the study of women's entrepreneurship as a route to social change. This social turn' claims women are empowered and/or emancipated through entrepreneurship with limited problematisation of how these interchangeably used concepts operate. Using an institutional perspective in combination with a narrative approach, we investigate women entrepreneurs' life stories on their road to freedom' where entrepreneurial activity enables them to break free' from particular gendered constraints. Through juxtaposing women's narratives in the contexts of Saudi Arabia and Sweden, the relationship between empowerment and emancipation is disentangled and (re)conceptualised. The findings distinguish between empowerment narrated as individual practices to achieve freedom for the self within institutional structures and emancipation as narrated as a wish to challenge and change structures of power and reach collative freedom. The yearning for collective emancipation propels women's stories of entrepreneurship by raising expectations for entrepreneurship as a vehicle for institutional change. Such stories may fascinate and inspire others to engage in entrepreneurial endeavours to become empowered, but whether they reach emancipation remains an empirical question to be answered. The performative dimension of entrepreneurial narratives is, however, their ability to turn emancipation into an (un)reachable object of desire, with a quest for even more individual empowerment and entrepreneurial activity, at the same time excluding other forms of human conduct as conducive for change.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article we develop the analysis and the conceptualization of the relationship between play and work within the increasingly aestheticized working life, drawing on the scholarship of Jacques Rancière and using images of playful office interiors as our empirical case. In doing so, we are able to add to the theorization of the uneasy relationship between the subordination of employee imagination and self to the agendas of the employer, typical of wage labor, and the strive for heteronomy and refiguring of the social order, characteristic of play.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay contrasts a perspective that places an excessive focus on technology businesses and growth with a view of entrepreneurship that embraces its heterogeneity. We challenge a taken-for-granted belief that only certain kinds of entrepreneurship might lead to wealth and job creation and additionally suggest that these two outcomes (wealth and job creation) need to be placed within a broader context of reasons, purposes, and values for why and how entrepreneurship emerges. We suggest that a wider and nondiscriminatory perspective on what constitutes entrepreneurship will lead to better theory and more insights that are relevant to the phenomenon.

    Am I a student and/or entrepreneur?: multiple identities in student entrepreneurship2017Ingår i: Education + Training, ISSN 0040-0912, E-ISSN 1758-6127, Vol. 59, nr 2, s. 135-154Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to study different aspects and tensional forces that play a role in the internal and contextual negotiation that takes place within students in the exploration of the possible identity of entrepreneur. It expands the knowledge of how the university context influences student entrepreneurial processes from a multiple identity perspective. The findings are related to discussions of entrepreneurship education.

    Design/methodology/approach: A conceptual paper that presents a framework on student entrepreneurial identity sense making that is grounded in a multiple identity perspective. The framework is illustrated by ten narrative cases on student entrepreneurship.

    Findings: The framework suggests four different ways students make sense of identity in the process of exploring the entrepreneurial identity along with their university studies. In this process students negotiate between the two identities of “student” and “entrepreneur”, both demanding in time, effort and commitment, and they in different manners struggle with balancing university belonging and entrepreneurial distinctiveness.

    Originality/value: The framework serves as a point of departure for discussing the psychological processes and tensions associated with students’ entrepreneurial identity construction, and what it means to entrepreneurship education. It is suggested that universities to a higher degree have to view themselves as psychological institutional moratoriums and thus as platforms of identity explorations rather than deterministic systems preparing students for certain careers to support students in becoming entrepreneurs.

    Understanding consumers’ perception of sustainable consumption: a ZMET approach2017Ingår i: Back to the Future: Using Marketing Basics to Provide Customer Value: Proceedings of the 2017 Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) Annual Conference / [ed] Nina Krey & Patricia Rossi, Springer, 2017, s. 531-538Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Considering importance of consumers’ understanding of sustainability in shaping their attitude toward CSR and its successful implementation, this research uses the Zaltman metaphor elicitation technique (ZMET) to develop a deeper understanding of how consumers perceive sustainability in general and sustainable consumption in particular. Based on the premise that most human communication is nonverbal, we used pictures as the medium of data collection and asked the 52 participants in this study to collect pictures that visualize their perception and understanding of sustainable consumption.

    Results show that overall understanding of sustainability exists among respondents; however, the majority of them have very little knowledge about actual and global meaning of sustainable consumption. Moreover, there existed a discrepancy between different age groups’ understanding of sustainable consumption. Hence, knowing the role of individual’s perception and personal values in the behavioral intention formation process, and given the fact that consumers play a vital role in the success CSR activities, this study suggests that knowing consumers and their perception of sustainability is essential to firms for using CSR as a marketing and branding tool.
