    Det som sitter i väggarna: En fallstudie om organisationskultur2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår studie har undersökt organisationen Epirocs organisationskultur, framförallt är det motivationsverktyg, kommunikation och makt som styrmedel som är i huvudfokus. Studien är uppbyggd med en deduktiv ansats. En kvalitativ metod har använts vid insamling av material och en hermeneutik tolkningslära har applicerats för att skapa en förståelse för vårt empiriska material.

    Resultaten av denna studie är att Epirocs organisationskultur används som styrmedel för att skapa motivation hos sina anställda. Organisationskulturen har bidragit med positiva effekter på både individens prestation och organisationen som helhet. Studien stödjer inte vissa tidigare studier, vilka kritiserar organisationskultur som används för att manipulera anställda på ett önskvärt sätt och att det är ett ―rent hyckleri‖. Utöver det har studien kommit fram att organisationskultur inte är ett inlåst fenomen, utan den kan påverkas både medvetet och omedvetet. Vi har även kommit fram att ansvarstagande hos anställda kan vara ett nytt tillvägagångssätt för organisationer för att övervaka sina medarbetare på ett omedvetet sätt.

    En företagskultur för Generation Y: En kvalitativ studie om företagskultur och generationsskillnader ur ett vd-perspektiv2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Titel: En företagkultur för Generation Y - En kvalitativ studie om generationsskillnader och företagskultur ur ett vd-perspektiv

    Bakgrund: För närvarande pågår ett generationsskifte på företag i Sverige genom att allt fler av Babyboom-generationens medarbetare börjar nå pensionsålder och Generation Y istället tar mer och mer plats på arbetsmarknaden. Tidigare forskning har visat att Generation Y skiljer sig från tidigare generationer när det kommer till vad de värderar, hur de vill ledas och vilken sorts företagskultur de attraheras av, och genom att många av dagens vd:ar och ledningsgrupper består av personer från Babyboom-generationen uppstår frågan om de äldre vd:arna kan stöta på problem när det kommer till att dels locka till sig arbetskraft från Generation Y, dels att kunna lyfta deras potential och få dem att vilja stanna kvar.

    Syfte: Studiens syfte är att utvisa om det finns någon skillnad i hur äldre och yngre vd:ar på små och medelstora företag inom två olika branscher ser på och väljer att arbeta med företagskultur. Studien ska också lyfta fram huruvida den eventuella skillnaden kan påvisa hur rustade de båda generationernas vd:ar är inför Generation Y:s antågande.

    Metod: För att uppnå studiens syfte har en kvalitativ forskningsmetod valts och empiriinsamlingen har skett genom kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer med två vd:ar från varje generation; Babyboom och Generation Y. Den insamlade empirin har därefter analyserats och jämförts med tidigare teorier om Generation Y.

    Slutsatser: Studien har visat att det i de studerade fallen finns generationsskillnader både när det kommer till synen på företagskultur och sättet som ledningsgruppen på företagen arbetar med kultur. Studien visar också att när det kommer till de studerade fallen är de yngre vd:arnas sätt att se på och arbeta med företagskultur mer kompatibelt med den företagskultur som attraherar Generation Y, än vad de äldre vd:arnas sätt att se på och arbeta med kultur är.

    Understanding the relationship between authentic leadership and types of organization: Within the stage of education2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations are playing an increasingly important role in many aspects in our lives. It calls for a great need of authentic leaders who can properly manage these organizations and give birth to a society which is free from hatred, dishonesty and endless seek of power. We believe that such need is stronger when it comes to educational organizations. Here leaders constantly interact with students who will eventually become future leaders of our society. Their authentic leadership can influence and facilitate those future leaders to become authentic. Thus, the focus of this thesis falls on organizations in the stage of education.

    Our thesis aims to understand the relationship between authentic leadership and types of organization. In order to gain a broad understanding of this issue, we do not want to confine ourselves to the definition of “types”. We rather try to involve as many criteria as possible into the picture. They can be the purpose, the size, or the structure of organizations. Authentic leadership will no doubt have fundamental impacts on the organization, so is the other way around. Therefore, we try to understand what these impacts could be and how these impacts are formed.  For the sake of the diversity of empirical data, we have conducted conversations with six participants who come from organizations with different backgrounds, including schools (high school and university level), multilateral organizations, non-government organizations, etc. Our methodology is inspired from the actors approach to conduct our interviews, but also from the Grounded Theory for the earlier and later stages of the research.  

    Ultimately, we are able to see how leaders interpret and develop authentic leadership. Through their ways of being authentic, they try to impact students, employees, organizations and the society to a larger extent. Moreover, we have discovered that different types of organization can also have profound influences on leaders in terms of motivations, passions, and psychological states. We hope that our findings can contribute to a better understanding of authentic leadership in organizational context.

    Approaches to behaviour change in highly mobile tourists: Investigating influencers and attitudes to high mobility travel2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism mitigation is a contentious issue that requires a multifaceted approach to effectively achieve. The need to reduce personal traveling expenditure in order to mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions caused by tourism has not suitably been infiltrated within the public consciousness. Furthermore, those travellers who have been exposed to the reality that greenhouse gas emissions from tourism has often disregard that information and continue with their behaviour regardless.  This thesis aimed to investigate the reasons why those who travel the most in society, the hypermobile, choses to travel as much as they do and how this demand for travel could be curbed. It focused on three forms of tourism mitigation; government regulations, increases to the price of air travel and social marketing. The study was conducted with 10 individuals who self-identify as being highly mobile (more than 3 international return trips per year). The results showed that those who no single method of tourism mitigation would be effective in the goal of limiting highly mobile behavioural tendencies. A mixture of all three methods would be required in reaching the goal of lowering the levels of distance air travel consumption.

    Title: ”Där alla tänker lika blir det inte mycket tänkt” – En kvalitativ studie om mångfald och inkludering i organisationer

     

    Purpose: The purpose of the study is to describe how inclusive organizations perceive diversity and inclusion, both as concepts and in terms of practical action.

     

    Method: Semi-structured interviews have been conducted with representatives from six different inclusive organizations. The study has had a qualitative focus. The study's interview questions have been based on a deductive approach.

     

    Conclusion: Previous research showed that there was a lack of qualitative research on diversity and inclusion work in organizations. The study showed that organizations that aim to be inclusive work actively to minimize biases that could lead to exclusion. The study also confirms that factors such as culture, climate, leadership and responsibility all play an important role when organizations work to be inclusive.

     

    This study has also shown that much of the theory surrounding inclusive organizations can be translated into a Swedish context. We believe that more inductive studies on diversity and inclusion in organizations could provide a higher level of explanation, and provide other perspectives, to the work being carried out.

     

    Keywords: Inclusion, diversity, exclusion, integration, organizational culture, organizational climate, leadership.

    The Benefits of Business Leaders with a Political Background over those with Business Management Exposure in the Modern-day Corporate World2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The on coming technology improvement has led to the revolution of most business,

    leadership, and administration methods. As a consequence of the technological improvements

    and globalization, the public management has been forced to adjust to the ever-changing

    functions and requirements in the different areas of leadership. This has led to the

    introduction of political leaders as the executive heads of major businesses in order to create

    the desired level of coherence between political and corporate systems especially when

    conducting international businesses activities. Consequently, this document seeks to assess

    the roles of politicians as managers, and determine if they are useful to the business world or

    they are just a symbol of leadership. In doing so, the document also seeks to investigate on

    the probable lessons that can be acquired from the political world into that of business in

    order to lead to the realization of long-term benefits.

    Ingen given väg till succé: en studie om förstagångschefers syn på chefskap, dess utmaningar och betydelsen av stöd från organisationen2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The interest in managership has declined among young people, while more and more old managers will be retiring shortly. The complexity of managership and the challenges, particularly regarding the lack of support, are great for first-time managers. Therefore there was an opportunity to study the phenomenon further to bring some clarity on the subject. The aim and purpose with the thesis was to give young people a clearer image of managership. This by showing how perceptions of management and managership could change when an individual takes on the position as a first-time manager and further describe how the first-time-managers felt about the amount of support from the organization and how it has influenced the transition to the manager position. The study was based on a qualitative method with an inductive approach where the qualitative data was collected through eight interviews with first-time managers. Based on the qualitative data, four themes were identified and interpreted with theories we found suitable. Based on the results that emerged, a summarized and deeper discussion was performed. The first-time-managers showed, based on their experiences, that they had a somewhat romanticized image of managership before becoming managers themselves. Nowadays they view the managership as something fun but also as something that requires a great amount of responsibility. The first-time-managers also outlined the insufficiency regarding the support from the organizations in the transition that turned out not to be the only or the most challenging problem.

    Weather preferences of French tourists: lessons for climate change impact assessment2016In: Climatic Change, ISSN 0165-0009, E-ISSN 1573-1480, Vol. 136, no 2, p. 339-351Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism has complex relationships with weather and climate, and there is consensus that tourism could be substantially affected by climatic change. While considerable research has been presented on how climatic change is likely to affect destinations and tourism stakeholders in the future, there remains limited understanding of the weather preferences of tourists. This is a research priority if the implications of climatic change for the temporal and geographic patterns of tourism demand are to be assessed with more relevance. This paper presents the results of a survey (n = 1643 respondents) of the weather preferences of French tourists. Results show the ranking of weather and climate as a factor of destination choice and satisfaction. They also indicate the high tolerance of tourists to heat and even to heat waves, whereas rainy conditions appear to be clearly repulsive. The weight of precipitation in indices like the Tourism Comfort Index should therefore be upgraded. The findings are also compared with studies in other countries. Slight differences in similar surveys can lead to a discrepancy in the appreciation of excessive heat and associated thresholds by 2-3 degrees C, which might limit the possibility to base climate change impact assessment on such fragile data.

    Engagement of young graduates in Entrepreneurship: Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Business Development2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In our economic era, the youth unemployment is a considerable issue. The labour market isblocked and it is a challenge for young people to find a stable job, especially in specificfields as social sciences or humanity studies. After graduating, the job seeking can take fewweeks even few months. Thus, entrepreneurship appears as a solution for those younggraduates who do not find a job or as a future career. Historically speaking, entrepreneurshipwas defined as an economic phenomenon but is seen as a broader concept today. Throughdecades, notions as opportunity, risk-taking and creativity have been added to the definitionbut also the different forms of entrepreneurship as social, societal, ecological or educational.Everyone can be an entrepreneur in his own way and young people are seduced by thisconcept that brings independence and freedom. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate onthe way young graduates who decided to turn themselves into entrepreneurship experiencetheir engagement in this field. To answer the research question, the abductive method hasbeen used. The thesis’ authors interviewed six young graduates who are engaged in variousprojects in order to collect the different experiences and relate them with the differentconcepts of entrepreneurship. After gathering the empirical data and analysed it with diversetheories, a conclusion has been drawn. It showed that there is no common way ofexperiencing entrepreneurship and that personality can have a valuable role concerning thedecision-making. In the following manuscript, theories and interviews have been collectedto reflect on engagement that can be taken by young graduates.

    The Hidden Ingredients of Team Performance: A conceptual model for emotional intelligence, self-leadership and team performance2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Due to globalization and increasing complexity within the business environment, teams have become a way of life for many organizations in order to generate higher performance and sustain competitive advantage. Organizations, however, may fail to fully benefit from teams despite all the investment and efforts that they make. Herein, we believe that a possible way to cope with these failures might be establishing an understanding that individuals’, particularly team members’ need for autonomy within teams through accomplishing self-discipline and managing their emotions and behaviors. Therefore, our purpose in this study is to investigate the relationship between individuals’ emotional intelligence and their self-leadership ability in the context of team performance. In line with this purpose, we find plausible to employ conceptual research approach in order to build an integrated and logical model, with proposed hypotheses, which could be used as a departure point for the researchers and their empirical studies in the future. Through this model, we argue that individuals’ emotional intelligence has a positive impact on the self-leadership ability and its three strategies, which are behavior focus strategy, natural reward strategy, and constructive thought patterns strategy, by managing and regulating one’s own and other’s emotions. Hence, as suggested, the association of emotional intelligence and self-leadership can influence team communication, team trust, team learning and team creativity positively thus it may enhance the overall team performance.

    The Determinants of Entrepreneurial Activity in the Nordic Countries During Years 2004-20132016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The positive contributions of entrepreneurship towards the economic development were already proved by the previous researchers. The main aim of this study was to analyse the determinants of entrepreneurial activity in the Nordic countries over the period of years 2004‑2013 to provide the supportive empirical analysis for the Nordic entrepreneurial policy makers. Data were obtained from the various databases and were formed into the panel dataset. Entrepreneurial activity was quantified by the two variables, rate of registered business activity and established business ownership rate. For each entrepreneurial activity, acting as the dependent variable, was estimated the set of econometric models following the econometric approach with the Fixed Effects Estimator. The results obtained for the both dependent variables did not substantially differ from each other and were generally in agreement with the results obtained by the previous scholars. The hypothesis stating the positive relationship between unemployment rate, GDP per capita and entrepreneurial activity, during the analysed period, were accepted. Also the negative impact of administrative barriers on entrepreneurial activity was confirmed. However, no statistically significant empirical support was obtained for the hypothesis assuming the positive relationship between R&D sector and entrepreneurial activity.

    Kunskapsöverföring i mindre familjeföretag: En kvalitativ fallstudie kring hur överföring av kunskap sker i mindre familjeföretag2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today, there is a widespread understanding that the company’s inherent knowledge and competence play an increasingly important role in order to meet future challenges. Developing competence and exchanging knowledge can therefore be seen as central in most companies, but this is emphasized as even more important in family businesses because competence is directly necessary for its future survival and development. What distinguishes family businesses from the rest, is the familiar affiliation which sets its mark on how the company is run and its culture.

    The aim of the study has been to investigate how the knowledge transfer appears in smaller family businesses. The research that permeated this study has been a multi-case study in which in-depth reviews of three companies have taken place. The collection of the empirical material has been done through semi-structured interviews and the methodological procedure of the study has followed an abductive approach.

    Based on the analysis results, it appeared that the knowledge transfer in all three companies mainly takes place through social interaction. In company C, however, there are also supplementary methods in the form of, among other things, work instructions which the other companies showed a lack of. This absence may entail a risk that knowledge will disappear or not develop. The family involvement affects all companies and sets its mark on the corporate culture, as it has come to light that the cultures are permeated by an inviting and easy-going atmosphere which invites to idea- and knowledge interaction. There have also been found to be difficulties in all companies to completely disassociate the private and professional roles, which has proved to bring both positive and negative effects on the knowledge transfer.

    A rainbow nation hunting for opportunities abroad:: A study on the implications of BEE on South African SMMEs when they internationalize2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Due to South Africa's history of apartheid the current regime have implemented the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) policy to rectify the discrimination against previously disadvantaged groups. The BEE policy gives incentives for companies to hire non-whites in higher positions, like management, and the ambition with this is to create equality. With a qualitative research method and using an abductive approach this study research how South African SMMEs are influenced by the BEE policy when they internationalize.

    This study concludes that South African SMMEs are differently influenced by the BEE policy when they internationalize. Furthermore, this research shows that the impact is highly dependent on the business owners ethnicity. The influence the BEE policy had on black owned business was predominantly positive. However, the effect the BEE policy had on white owned businesses was more complex. As far as this research shows, the influence the BEE policy had on SMMEs when they internationalize are an extension of how the BEE policy influenced them in the domestic market. The authors recommendation is that the relationship between BEE and internationalization is further investigated and that this study is complemented with a quantitative research.

    Abstract [en]

    In a conservative field as the law industry, where the exercise of profession is that independent that the employee becomes one's own leader and where the professional identity dominates the identity of the organisation, there is a trend to leave the company, either for another company or in order to start ones own business. In this qualitative study, we wanted to increase the understanding of identity and leadership constructed in a company in a professional field. The study was conducted at a micro business in the law industry in a small city, by semi structured interviews of the employees and the owner of the company. The empirical material and analysis has been thematised by the research questions concerning identity and leadership, and sense-making has been knitted together to discuss how these cooperate. The conclusion is that the identity of the organisation cooperates with the identity of the profession, and that is why the employees will relate to this identity, and also construct the owner, who has the ownership of the identity, as a leader.

    Abstract [en]

    Since 2011, entrepreneurship is established in the Swedish curriculum for primary school. Much theory can be found on the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship. There is, however, not as much research available regarding employment of the entrepreneur. With this qualitative study, we strived to contribute to an extended understanding of if and how the entrepreneur is recruited to an employment. The study was carried out by partly semistructured interviews with two recruiters, and partly by text analysis of nine listings in different professions. The whole study follows a sectioning between the trait perspective and the behavior perspective. These themes were chosen in consideration of the different entrepreneurial theoretical orientations, but also in regard to different approaches within recruitment theory. When the study began, we thought that we would be met by a negative attitude against hiring entrepreneurs. The conclusion of the study, however, became that the entrepreneur is sought after to hire, especially for its characteristics, but that the entrepreneurial concept poses some practical problems for the recruitment itself.

    "Litar du på mig så litar jag på dig": Ömsesidig tillit i affärsrelationer mellan svenska och filippinska företag2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The willingness to internationalize firms and organizations drives the globalization in

    business. A lot of firms see possibilities to reduce costs and resources by relocating

    where they do their business to emerging markets. The Philippines is an example of an

    emerging market with an estimated growth of their annual GDP with 5 %. To broaden a

    business outside its home market often leads to insecurity and anxiety. Therefore, trust

    is a crucial aspect in a business relation. The problem is that there is a lack of

    knowledge in how important trust is and how it can be established between Swedish

    and Philippine companies. The purpose of this study is to create an understanding of

    trust in cross cultural relations. An inductive approach has been used throughout this

    study to ensure its relevance. Knowledge and insights has been conducted through

    qualitative interviews with both Swedish and Philippine companies.

    The Swedish companies has been selected for their Philippine relations and general

    knowledge about the country. The other part of our empirical chapter was conducted at

    a trade show in the Philippine capitol, Manila. The Philippine companies was selected

    for their relations with European companies and partners. The two empirical

    perspectives were then compared with each other.

    Trust as a concept has recently grown and is today a crucial aspect when companies

    seeks relations in other countries. Trust is about liability and the ability to meet

    requested responsibility. When trust is established a business relation can begin. Both

    sides concluded that personal connection and physical presence are crucial if long-term

    trust is to be established.

    Title: The impact of digitalization on today’s local boutiques

    • A qualitative study on how Quinte, Gillblads and Tátch can take advantage from digitalization

    Authors: Victoria Ehrenström and Carolina Long

    Examiner: Frederic Bill

    Supervisor: Anders Hytter

    Course: Enterprising and Business Development, bachelor thesis, 15 credits

    Semester: Spring 2018

    Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is that through a qualitative study of Quinte, Gillblads and Tatch illustrate how companies can take advantage from the digitalization of their marketing.

    Research questions:

    • How does Quinte, Gillblad and Tátch include digitalization in their business strategy?

    • How can Quinte, Gillblads and Tátch take advantage from digitalization to increase sales?

    • Which marketing strategies are applied at Quinte, Gillblads and Tátch to increase sales and create competitive advantages on the market?

    Method: Qualitative interviews

    Results: After completing the study, it has been found that Quinte does not have a sufficiently developed digital strategy. The use of social media has resulted in more customers visiting the boutique and asking for clothes they have seen on the channels. Gillblads uses digital technology, in the form of e-commerce and inventory management. The use of social media has led to spontaneous purchases, but the channels are not used continuously, because of staff shortage. Tátch uses digital technology passively, as the company does not have the financial conviction or a sufficiently developed digital strategy. The use of social media has led to increased sales as it creates interest for the consumer.

    Is female entrepreneurship only empowering for single women?: Evidence from France and Germany2019In: Social Sciences, ISSN 2076-0760, E-ISSN 2076-0760, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 1-19, article id 128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Entrepreneurship has been suggested as an alternative career model for women to gain economic empowerment while maintaining caring obligations. In this study, we investigate how gender and living situation affect entrepreneurs’ engagement in their business, home, well-being and business success in both France and Germany. Data from the European Social Survey were used, which included 470 French and 622 German self-employed people. For the French, women reported more working hours when living alone but there were no gender differences for the other living situations. For the Germans, there were no gender differences when the self-employed person lived alone; for the other living situations, men reported more working hours. Women reported working more household hours than men in both countries. There were no gender differences in life satisfaction for German self-employed people regardless of living situation; for the French, gender differences varied by living situation. Men reported more business success than women in both countries. Results suggest that self-employed people in Germany follow a traditional breadwinner model, whereas in France, self-employed women do more paid and unpaid work at the same time. In sum, entrepreneurship may only be empowering for self-employed women living alone

    Känner du rätt person?: En studie om sociala kontaktnätets betydelse vid anställning av civilekonomer2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: In 2010 SCB presented a survey of how 403 000 jobs were added (GP

    2010). 79 000 of these were added through social contacts and another 100 000 by the

    employer himself who contacted the unemployed. This trend of using social contacts in

    the job-seeking process gets support by Hensvik, doctor in economics. In the magazine

    Framtider (2012) she writes that the social environment such as neighbours, class mates,

    former colleagues and parents have a big impact if we get an employment or not.

    Hensvik (2012) says that the caring of ones contacts is an important self-investment that

    improves your probabilities of getting an employment. She continues writing that in

    today’s society it’s not only important who you are but also who you know.

    Purpose: Previous research tells that social contacts are one of the factors that will

    improve your probabilities of getting employed. We will continue where previous

    research tends to end and aim for a more focused study where we measure the effects of

    using contacts in reality. The purpose of this thesis is to explain the contacts’ importance

    when employing former students with a Degree of Master of Science in Business and

    Economics.

    Method: We have conducted a questionnaire survey that was sent out to eight Swedish

    universities resulting in 100 responses.

    Conclusion: We have come to the conclusion that social contacts contribute in the

    recruitment process of former business students, that the use of contacts in 90,4% will

    get you far in the job-seeking process and that the helpful contacts are not necessarily

    the ones defined as weak ties, of which Granovetter (1973, 1975) would have argued.

    Byggmästarna: En flerfallstudie av två fotbollstränares målstyrning utifrån ett retoriskt perspektiv2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Research of management by objectives (MBO) tells us of many different causes in failed goal-settings. MacLeod (2012:70) writes that goals need to be reasonable and Latham (2004:127) emphasizes the importance of goal-commitment. Fairhurst (1996:11) concludes that conscious framing can assist the leader in increasing the likelihood of achieving goals. But how does it work in practice?

    Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to increase the understanding of how leaders are working toward goals, from a rhetorical perspective.

    Method: We have conducted observations and interviews with players and officials in two Swedish football clubs: Östers IF (Superettan) and Moheda IF (division 3). 

    Conclusion: The coaches consciously choose words in goal setting according to how they are interpreted by the players. Prigoda is framing by avoiding terms like ”hang in” (to remain in their league) and Björknesjö primes himself and the players that they are still ”building” (as in a process). Both leaders are however inconsistent in their framing, which in the long term could lead to unwanted effects.

    "Det gäller att hänga med": En kvalitativ studie om hur digitaliseringen har påverkat HR-avdelningars arbete och roll2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Problemformulering: Vad har digitaliseringen inneburit för HR-avdelningar inom den offentliga sektorn?

    Syfte: Uppsatsens syfte är att identifiera hur digitaliseringen har påverkat HR-avdelningars arbete och roll, för att skapa en förståelse för vilka följder digitaliseringen har lett till för HR-avdelningarna.

    Metod: En induktiv ansats och kvalitativ datainsamling där det empiriska materialet samlades in med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer på informanternas arbetsplatser.

    Slutsats: Studien påvisar att digitaliseringen har inneburit och innebär en förändring för HR-avdelningar. Digitaliseringen har lett till att digitala verktyg introducerats som har påverkat många arbetsprocesser, och framför allt det administrativa arbetet. Digitaliseringen har även lett till konsekvenser för hur arbetet ser ut och hur bland annat kommunikation, relationer och effektivitet uppfattas. HRs roll har förändrats till att ha blivit mer stödjande, mer strategisk och antagit rollen till att vara en förändringsagent.

    Talang inom Strategisk Human Resource Management2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Although Talent Management (TM) is a well-known concept, there are certain limitations in the area. Primarily it is about talent being an ambiguous concept and that there is currently no clear definition. Furthermore, previous research shows that there are no actual routines on how TM-activities should be designed. The specific contribution from the current study is therefore about identifying the challenges that exists for TM from an employer perspective. The findings we have noticed in the study are mainly derived from the structure of an organisation where there is a certain dynamic between the central management and local units. This makes it difficult to work strategically with TM as the division of responsibility is locally based. Another finding was that the definition of talent should be mutual in order for organisations to be able to handle talents effectively and to design activities that facilitates the work towards the organisation's goals. Thus, this study should be able to support future research in the field of TM by identifying the challenges organisations might face and therefore creating opportunities for better managing or strategically developing the work with TM.

    Attrahera, rekrytera & bibehålla talanger: En studie om framgångsrikt talangarbete2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund:

    Talanger är ett begrepp som blir allt vanligare i dagens organisationer. Talanger är en typ av individer som besitter en viktig kompetens och handlingsförmåga för olika specifika uppgifter. En allt större del av kompetenta talanger får i och med dagens välutvecklade informationssamhälle mer och fler alternativ när det gäller karriärmöjligheter. I kontrast till talangers ökade valmöjligheter så får arbetsgivarens svårt att hitta rätt kompetens. Utmaningen att attrahera, rekrytera och bibehålla talanger blir därför allt svårare för dagens organisationer.

    Syfte:

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att identifiera och få en förståelse för de kritiska momenten i de olika faserna i Talent Management arbetet. Därifrån vill vi skapa en bättre helhetsförståelse för hela processen och hur de ansvariga integrerar de olika faserna.

    Metod:

    Vi valde att använda oss av en kvalitativ metod med deduktiv ansats i syfte att besvara vårt syfte och våra frågeställningar. I studien har vi använt oss av kvalitativa intervjuer med totalt 6 stycken anställda på företagen Skanska och NCC för att få deras syn på arbetet med talent management. Intervjupersonerna bestod av 3 representanter från respektive företag som arbetar och ansvarar för respektive område, att attrahera, rekrytera och bibehålla sin personal. Syftet med intervjuerna var att försöka få ett helhetsperspektiv samt att se hur de arbetar inom respektive område.

    Resultat:

    . Vi kunde genom uppsatsen identifiera kritiska moment i Talent Management processen. Det var bland annat svårigheterna med att förmedla ett budskap på ett trovärdigt sätt för att skapa rätt förväntningar hos talanger. Studien visade även att fasen som handlar om att bibehålla och utveckla befintlig personal är ett bra och viktigt första steg i processen för Talent Management. Vi identifierade att ett lyckosamt arbete med att bibehålla talanger underlättar i sin tur arbetet med att attrahera talanger.

    Examiner                          Mikael Lundgren

     

    Background                     

    The prime focus of activity based office designs are the though of choosing your workplace along with your work task, instead of the other way around. This means that you do not longer have a set workstation of your own, you move around according to where to your current work will be best performed. 

     

    Problem                          

    We want to explore how the communication within a company’s departments has been affected by the introduction of an activity-based office design.

    Purpose                            

    The purpose of this study was to get an understanding of how this office design could effect the communication within companies that uses it. Further more, we wanted to study the effects that this kind of office would have on the communication within a department.

     

    Method                             

    This bachelor thesis are written by inspiration from an inductive approach and based on a multiple qualitative case study of two companies that currently are using an activity based office design. Six interviews contributed to the collection of the empirical data.

     

    Conclusion                      

    Based on the results of this study we were able to identify a clear change in the HR departments (department by our choosing) communication. The communication generally increased as a result of more interaction between employees from different departments. However, we could also note that at the same time the communication within HR decreased as a direct result of the activity-based office design.

    Journalister i digitaliseringens tidevarv: En studie om hur journalisters yrkesidentitet påverkats av digitaliseringens framväxt2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how journalist’s professional identity has changed because of the large changes of the media industry due to new technology. We also want to increase the understanding of how organizations can support their employees in identity work in connection to organizational changes that may impact the professional identity.

    Methodology: We have conducted a case study that investigates journalist’s professional identity with an abductive approach. The empirical data was collected using interviews.

    Conclusion: The study shows that journalists have a distinct professional identity based on journalistic ideals and values such as ethics and neutrality. It was also found that due to new technology the work role as journalists has changed and consequently the professional identity has also partly changed. We can see that regardless of which industry that is facing large changes due new technology, organizations need to understand how the professional identity can be impacted.

    Förväntningar på ledarskap: En studie i mäns och kvinnors ledarskap2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En ledare har historiskt sett framställts som en man och vissa studier påstår att det

    fortfarande är fallet. Samtidigt innehas fler ledande positioner av kvinnor och kvinnor

    uppfattas stereotypiskt besitta annorlunda attribut än män. Betyder det att män och

    kvinnor känner att de förväntas fokusera på olika variabler i sitt ledarskap? Studiens

    syfte är att studera och skapa en bättre förståelse för de upplevda förväntningar kvinnor

    respektive män har på sitt ledarskap, hur de hanterar potentiellt olika förväntningar samt

    om de agerar därefter. Studien är av en kvalitativ karaktär med en abduktiv ansats och

    intervjuer har utförts med sex respondenter. Litteratur har samlats in under arbetets gång

    samt kompletterats vid behov. Slutsatsen av studien visade på att kvinnor och män inte

    upplever några markanta skillnader angående förväntningarna på sitt ledarskap.

    Konklusionen av uppsatsen visar att män och kvinnor agerar i sina ledarroller utefter

    förväntningarna de upplever ifrån sina medarbetare. Diskussionen angående om hur vårt

    val av organisation, nämligen Landstinget i Kalmar Län, har påverkat resultatet

    eftersom alla respondenter anses vara omhändertagande samt besitta liknande

    utbildning, hålls i slutet av uppsatsen.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to create understanding about how the reduction of cash affects societal ideas about integrity. We wanted to research human attitudes to the ongoing reduction of cash use in Sweden from a integrity perspective.

    The method used was a qualitative approach and the empirical data was collected using a focus group with students and three semi structured interviews in different branches of industry based on their way of working with and handling cash. Participating in the study was five students, a store manager in the grocery store business, an economic advisor at a bank and three investigators at the Swedish central bank. The result was analyzed using a theoretical foundation based on Georg Simmel’s work “The philosophy of money” and other socioeconomic research with a focus on the terms value, power and integrity.

    The results showed that people in the swedish society are aware and partially wary of the development towards a cash free society. Advantages that were illuminated was a reduced risk of robbery towards banks and businesses, less environmental effects due to reduced transportation and handling of cash, easier payments for consumers and increased profitability of card payments for businesses and a increased difficulty of usage of “black” money within the society. Negative aspects that were brought up were the issues of vulnerable groups in society that rely on cash, a fear that the development is moving too fast and that the society will be increasingly vulnerable when the payment infrastucrure relies on a single point of failure. The integrity aspects that the people in the study discussed showed that society is aware of the risks surrounding digital payments, but that the advantages outweigh the potential negatives, and that there is a strong trust in institutions and businesses in Sweden to not exploit their positions when it comes to the integrity of private individuals.

    Abstract [en]

    Sports tourism is a growing segment of the tourism industry and sporting events are often used by destinations to attract tourists. With enthusiast and talented organizers, Kalmar has grown into an event city with a broad portfolio of sporting events that have contributed with various effects. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the events that were important to Kalmar have had a significant role for the city´s development after 2012. We want to see if the development has had any significance for investment in sport tourism and what effects this has led to know.

    The study has adopted an inductive approach with a qualitative way of collecting data. The results in the form of the empirical and theoretical material show us how the city and sports tourism have developed and what effects have been significant for Kalmar. By conducting an analysis and discussion of these categories, we have been able to reach a conclusion that the development in Kalmar before and especially after 2012 has played an important role in the investment in sports tourism and its effects

    Abstract [en]

    Title: ‘Lots of talking and less action’ – A qualitative study of knowledge transfer in an organization. 

    Purpose: The aim of the study was to create an understanding of the process of knowledge transfer from an individual to an organization and of the organizational obstacles for knowledge transfer which can be found after a completed investment for employee development.

    Method: The used method was a qualitative research strategy with an abductive approach. The design of the research has been a case study in which the case involved how an organization uses the knowledge that individuals received after the completion of a specialist education. The data collection was done through qualitative interviews and the material has been interpreted with a hermeneutic approach.

    Conclusion: Through our questions of research we gained an understanding of the obstacles for knowledge transfer in an organization and the importance of management when creating a supporting environment for knowledge and knowledge transfer processes.

    Information, intern rapportering och kostnadsmedvetenhet: En studie om organisationers interna arbete kring sjukfrånvaro2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund och problem:

    Sjukfrånvarograden i Sverige är stigande trots att tidigare undersökningar visar att befolkningens hälsa inte blivit sämre. En betydligt lägre sjukfrånvarograd visades i Sverige under den period organisationer på grund av lagstiftning redovisade information om sjukfrånvaro i årsredovisningen. Vad ökningen beror på är inte fastställt trots den tydliga kopplingen mellan ökningen av sjukfrånvarograden och den organisatoriska inblandningen.

    Syfte:

    Studien syftar till att diagnostisera vilka interna faktorer som påverkar sjukfrånvarograden i en organisation. Resultatet av studien förväntas ge organisationer ökad förståelse för vikten av arbetet kring sjukfrånvaro.

    Metod:

    En enkätundersökning har genomförts där urvalsgruppen utgörs av organisationer som tidigare visat en föredömlig sjukfrånvarograd. De tre teoretiska faktorer som utgör studiens referensram är information, intern rapportering och kostnadsmedvetenhet. Utifrån teorin skapades tre antaganden som kom att testas i den empiriska datainsamlingen.

    Slutsats:

    Genom analys av datainsamlingen och teori kunde två antaganden bekräftas och en förkastas. Ett positivt samband kan ses mellan låg sjukfrånvarograd och de identifierade organisatoriska faktorerna information, intern rapportering och kostnadsmedvetenhet. Omfattningen på den information som dokumenteras samt specifikt till vem informationen rapporterades var dock inte avgörande för utfallet av sjukfrånvarograd.

    4 organisationer och 825 chefer: En studie om chefslösa organisationer2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This Bachelor’s thesis is about bossless organizations. We have observed that the hierarchical structure that the majority of organizations is structured by today is a remnant of a time long gone, and can be an obstacle for independent thinking and responsibility inside organizations. We want to question the accepted perception that an organization is best structured in a hierarchic form.

    The purpose of the thesis is to provide an understanding of how a bossless organization works and to give a concrete explanation of the consequences of this kind of organizational structure.

    The thesis is of a qualitative nature and is designed with an inductive approach at an organizational level. We conducted a case study on a bossless company and supplemented this with secondary sources from three other bossless organizations.

    It concludes that the bossless approach can work and that there are a number of advantages to benefit from it. It is based on the intrinsic motivation of the employees and the willingness and ability to be a co-producer of corporate success. Another important conclusion we made is that the function of a boss never disappears, even though the position is removed. The study has shown that the bossless approach seems to be applied to the most types of businesses.

    "Would you buy it?": "What triggers ethical consumption, based on personality archetypes"2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study comprises what triggers ethical consumption, based on personality archetypes. It has been conducted through semi-structured interviews. The respondents were students at Linnaeus University in the ages of 20-27. The personality archetypes were mapped through a conceptual model, based on the foundations of a personality; ego or social, with tendencies of having freedom or order characteristics. The respondent’s ethical behaviour was mapped in a conceptual model, then analysed in accordance with existing personalities. The results show differences in what triggers consumers’ behaviour in ethical consumption and that the individual’s personality determines to what extent.

    Klippan på ett stormigt hav: HR-avdelningens utmaningar i en agil miljö2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med vår uppsats är att studera hur olika arbetsroller förändras i en agil organisation

    och vilka utmaningar HR-avdelningen ställs inför i den agila miljön. I organisationer

    där chefsroller omskapas och medarbetarnas ansvar ökar behövs det skapas en kunskap

    om hur de tillskrivna rollerna förändras och vilka utmaningar som tillkommer med det. I

    genomförandet av studien har vi valt att tillämpa en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi och en

    multipel fallstudie för att få en så pass djup förståelse som möjligt.

    Den teoretiska referensramen innefattar teorier om ledarskap, följarskap och HRavdelningens

    roller för att sedan utmynna i teorier rörande agilt ledarskap, självstyrande

    team samt agilt HR vilka har hjälpt oss att svara på vår huvudsakliga problemformulering.

    Vidare redovisas vår empiriska datainsamling som samlats in genom intervjuer med

    informanter som alla arbetar med agilt HR för att försöka skapa en så rättvis bild av ämnet

    som möjligt. Den teoretiska referensramen och den empiriska datainsamlingen integreras i

    analyskapitlet och vävs samman med våra egna reflektioner och tankar för att urskilja

    mönster och bakomliggande faktorer till de svar vi fått.

    Slutligen presenteras uppsatsens slutsats som syftar att svara på vårt huvudproblem och

    våra delproblem. Vi kan konstatera att rollerna i en agil miljö förändras och den makt som

    tidigare varit associerad med ledarskapet till viss del försvinner och överlåts på

    medarbetarna. Det i sin tur leder till att HR-avdelningen utmanas av att möta de

    förändringar som uppstår och anpassa processer för att förändras i takt med den

    snabbt föränderliga och komplexa omvärlden.

The companies’ organizational culture and knowledge management are essential to create knowledge transfer. Also that the employees and the leaders of the company knows how knowledge- and information transfer arknkoe done best for them. That is why we chose our purpose to be:

    The aim is to understand the differences between managers and employees perception about knowledge- and information transfer in a manufacturing company.

    Methodology: A qualitative method with an abductive approach has been used in this thesis. We had our focus on one specific company so we chose to do a case study with semi-structured interviews and observations. We did five interviews where two was with leaders and three with employees. In addition to this we did two observations.

    Theory: The different theories for this study are mainly about information, knowledge, knowledge transfer, organizational culture and motivation.

    Analysis: The analysis is about managers and employees perception about information, knowledge, knowledge transfer, how they get motivated and how the culture of the company affects this. The empirical material is analyzed with the previous theories to get a conclusion.

    Conclusion: The perception of information- and knowledge transfer differs between managers and employees mostly when it comes to working-process and motivation to knowledge transfer. With more standardization the employees get more stressed and less motivated. They believe that this leads to their knowledge to be less important and that the knowledge is transferred less. The employees believes that motivation to knowledge transfer should be prioritized but the managers believe that the motivation should be a part of the job.

    Reflection and further research: For further research it would be interesting to investigate how “newer” employees at the company see the subject of knowledge- and information transfer to get another perspective. Also how companies can work with lean-production but still make the employees to feel good about their assignments.

    Att brinna för utbrända: - en kvalitativ studie om ledares inställning till utmattningssyndrom2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Studiens syfte är att identifiera ledares förhållningssätt till utmattningssyndrom samt hur det påverkar deras agerande på arbetsplatsen. 

    Metod: En deduktiv ansats med en kvalitativ datainsamling med hjälp av semi-strukturerade intervjuer.

    Slutsatser: Under arbetets gång har ledares inställning kunnat tolkas och deras inställning beror bland annat på hur de ser på krav, ansvar och kommunikation. Ett antal gemensamma aspekter har kunnat urskiljas och de främsta är att problemet är hemskt, svårt att förhålla sig till och komplext. Ledares förhållningssätt till utmattningssyndrom påverkar deras agerande i det avseendet att de strävar efter att arbeta förebyggande i stor utsträckning. Deras inställning kring förebyggande arbete blir således att det är viktigt och bör genomsyra alla delar av organisationen.

    After-work eller en kopp kaffe, vad väljer du?: En studie om ritualens påverkan på anställda2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen är att skapa en inventering för på vilket sätt ritualer påverkar anställdas trivsel, uppskattning, gemenskap, motivation och missnöje på deras arbetsplats.

    Metod: Uppsatsen utgår från en deduktiv ansats där teorin samlades in innan insamling av empiri. Insamlingsmetoden för uppsatsen var intervjuer och det genomfördes 30 stycken utifrån ett bekvämlighetsurval i Kalmar län. Insamlat material analyserades noggrant för att se på vilket sätt ritualer påverkar anställda. Resultatet jämfördes med tidigare forskning för att se om tidigare teorier stämde överens eller skiljde sig från resultatet i vår undersökning.

    Slutsatser: Uppsatsens resultat visar att anställda påverkas av ritualer på arbetsplatsen. Det framgår också att det uppkommit skillnader från tidigare forskning jämfört med vår undersökning. Ritualer påverkar majoriteten av de anställda positivt, men det har även framgått att ritualer tenderar att leda till missnöje.

    Akademikers "moment 22": - En studie som undersöker rekryterares inställning till högskole-­ och universitetsutbildade kandidater utan arbetslivserfarenhet.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of recruiting is to find a job candidate who meets the demands of formal and informal competence at the same time as the candidate should be seen as the right person to the right place. Several job advertisements in the areas of finance and administration has at least two years of work experience as a demand before individuals can be seen as an appropriate job-candidate, hence it becomes a sort of “catch-22” for graduates with no prior work experience. The purpose of this study is to create a better understanding for recruiters’ approach and attitude to hiring individuals who only have a university degree. Our aim is to get an insight into what recruiters’ believe newly examines contributions are to organizations’, how these candidates can increase their chances of reaching an employment and further obtain a deeper understanding of the recruitment process in its various stages. In order to answer our research questions, we used an inductive approach with a qualitative methodology. We conducted semi-structured interviews with recruiters on six different companies to obtain as much depth in our understanding as possible. During our study we have found that recruiter has a positive approach towards hiring graduates without professional experience, however, it differs on the services level. We have created an awareness of that new graduates will contribute with current knowledge and a lot of energy to support business development and modernization. Graduates with no experience can increase their chances in the recruitment process, for example by lowering the threshold for employers in different ways. They should spend time on their applications and sharpen the arguments why he or she is right for the position. We do further refer to our sixth chapel to take note of all conclusions, this because we find difficulties in presenting them briefly.

    Arbetsgivarens kontroll genom kundens recension: En studie om övervakning inom hotell- och restaurangbranschen2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Problemformulering: Hur hanterar arbetsgivare personalrelaterad information som kan utläsas ur en kundrecension?

    Syfte: Syftet är att kartlägga hur arbetsgivare kontrollerar sin anställda utifrån den personalrelaterade informationen som framgår i kundrecensioner.

     

    Metod: En deduktiv forskningsansats och en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi. Det empiriska materialet samlades in genom åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer.

     

    Slutsats: Arbetsgivare inom hotell- och restaurangbranschen utövar en övervakning över sina anställda genom online-recensioner. Vi har även upptäckt att arbetsgivare använder online-recensioner som grund för feedback och beslutsunderlag gällande organisationens anställda. Utöver det är arbetsgivarna också medvetna om den varierande tillförlitligheten i online-recensioner.

    Hållbarhet i små företag: En kvantitativ studie ur småföretagarens perspektiv med utgångspunkt från företagets olika intressenter2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Grunden för studien har varit David L. Raineys intressentmodell. Genom att anta ett socialt perspektiv inom hålbarhetsarbetet menar Rainey att de ekologiska och ekonomiska aspekter inkluderas i arbetet. Rainey menar att det är genom det sociala perspektivet som framgångar för en ännu bättre framtid startas tillsammans med företagets intressenter och omgivning. Syftet för studien är att skapa en övergripande förståelse för hur små företags hållbarhetsarbete kan förbättras genom att undersöka hur representanter från små företag beskriver sitt hållbarhetsarbete med hjälp av Raineys intressentmodell. Frågeställningen har varit: Hur kan små företag utveckla sitt hållbarhetsarbete med utgångspunkt av Raineys intressentmodell? En deduktiv ansats har använts med kvantitativ metod som grund och en webenkät baserad på Rainey intressentmodell utgjorde verktyget för insamlingen av forskningsdata. Resultatet är tillämningsbart på de företag som ingått i studien. Resultatet visar att företagsrepresentanterna anger att de arbetar i mycket hög grad med hållbarhet, men att det finns vissa delar i verksamheterna som ses som mer riskfyllda. I slutsatsen utpekas delområdet Aktörer i samhället ut som det delområde som de medverkande företagen utifrån studiens resultat bör arbetar mera med. Det är det delområde av de fyra som ingår i modellen som företagarna anger att de arbetar med i lägst utsträckning och samtidigt ser störst risk för att negativ kritik framkommer vid en extern granskning. Det är också det delområde som sticker ut mest i en granskning av kritiska områden i verksamheten. För att förbättra sitt hållbarhetsarbete med utgångspunkt av Raineys modell behöver företagen skapa kommunikationsvägar, rutiner och eventuellt riktlinjer för att kunna följa och hålla kontakt med företagets intressanter.

    A year at the Opera: social innovation in between organizing contexts and idealistic infrastructures2018In: Presented at Neon-konferansen 2018: Innovasjon i organisasjoner – utfordringer og muligheter, Høgskolen i innlandet (HINN), Lillehammer, Norway, November 21-22, 2018, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the early fall of 2013 it is reported in Smålandsposten, the local newspaper in the Småland region in the southern part of Sweden, that an opera house recently has been founded, and that it will stage Mozart’s The Magic Flute the following summer. To accentuate the regional connection the name of the opera house is Smålandsoperan, and behind the initiative are two cultural entrepreneurs who are presented as being driven by “bringing opera to the people” on one hand, and establishing a cultural institution that could house all the region’s opera competences and interests on the other. “One should not have to go to the big cities to experience opera”, one of them is quoted, highlighting the democratic aspects of both cultural production and consumption.

    One year later Smålandsoperan is considered to be a huge success; the shows have been sold-out, the opera house has been taken to the heart by the critics. And the success has continued: In 2018 the opera has firmly established itself as an actor to be relied upon with five consecutive years of sold-out shows and critically acclaimed reviews. The success has however not come easy. Run as a corporate business, the opera has not been eligible for receiving financial support from public authorities, thus being solely dependent on revenues. This has put pressure on Smålandsoperan’s board to balance the company’s artistic ambitions with harsh economic realities – and doing so in an innovative manner.

    In this paper, based on empirical field work carried out at Smålandsoperan under its first year (the thick description is reported in Ericsson, 2018), the board’s innovative actions during the opera’s first year is interpreted and problematized from an institutional logic’s perspective; and it is shown how different innovations are construed by means of the mobilization of two interrelated resources. On one hand the innovations are construed in relation to an organizing context, an all-encompassing and situated form of life where people not only live very closely with each other but also have developed a shared perception of the world (Johannisson, 2005), constituted by a loosely coupled network of cultural entrepreneurs “at the margins” (cf. Scott, 2012) of the artistic field who most often are related to each other by kinship and/or friendship. On the other hand the innovations are construed in relation to an idealistic infrastructure made up of non-profit associations and movements that are knitted together by the sharing of artistic ideals and values (cf. Ericsson, 2018).

    Allegori över en författare i kreativ kris?2015In: Pär Lagerkvist i text och ton / [ed] Magnus Eriksson & Margareta Petersson, Växjö: Pär Lagerkvist-samfundet , 2015, 1, p. 11-20Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Pär Lagerkvists Hissen som gick ned i helvete från 1924 tolkas utifrån sin bibliska intertext som en kritisk allegori över ett modernistiskt och sekulariserat samhälle, ett samhälle där moralens gränser luckrats upp så till den grad att ”eviga” värden ställs på huvudet och överskrids utan några som helst skrupler eller konsekvenser; och förstås därigenom som en allegori över sin egen förmedling och tillblivelse, som en skildring av den gränsöverskridande Konstnärens predikament i en krasst ekonomiserad värld.

    An essay on the entrepreneurial war machine2018In: Innovation, management, entrepreneurship and sustainability: proceedings of the 6th international conference, May 31 – June 1, 2018, Prague / [ed] Ondřej Dvouletý, Martin Lukeš & Jan Mísař, Prague: Vysoká škola ekonomická v Praze, Nakladatelství Oeconomica , 2018, p. 257-265Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose is to present and explore Deleuze and Guattari’s (1988) concept of the “war machine” in relation to the academic discourse on entrepreneurship in order to contribute with a nuanced understanding of the discourse’s centrality in contemporary societies as well as its consequences.

    Design/methodology/approach: The paper is conceptual in character and written in the form of an essay in order to capitalize upon the essay’s tentative and reflective epistemology.

    Findings: The academic discourse on entrepreneurship conceptualized as a war machine is found to be set up against the State apparatus and resisting State appropriation by 1) deprecating bureaucracy, 2) criticizing normative societal institutions, and 3) self-consciously mobilizing actors into a scholarly movement. The consequences of these forms of resistance are on one hand a discursive colonialization of the natural, and on the other hand the formation of a seemingly strong alloy between the academic discourse on entrepreneurship and neoliberal ideology/political agendas.

    Research/practical implications: The academic discourse on entrepreneurship conceptualized as a war machine draws attention to the discourse’s taken-for-granted notions about entrepreneurship as well as their consequences. As such the conceptualisation opens up for critical research on otherwise neglected or silenced empirical topics within research on entrepreneurship such as the formation of the academic discourse on entrepreneurship, the enrolment, socialisation, subjection and subjectification of researchers on entrepreneurship, and the discursive tactics of entrepreneurship researchers’ visavi the State apparatus.

    Originality/value: In line with the essayistic epistemology, the essay hopefully gives the reader the opportunity to reflect upon on neglected or silenced issues within the academic discourse on entrepreneurship.

    Dead or alive and kicking?2019In: Presented at Musik och Samhälle 2019: Tema "LIVE", Lund, Sweden, October 10, 2019, 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    För snart tio år sedan skrev jag en bok med den något pretentiösa titeln “Den odöda musiken: Essäer om teknologi, ledarskap och kreativitet”. Min utgångspunkt var att musikens fält inte längre var vad det en gång varit, och att många – i perspektiv av digitalisering och nya alternativa produktions-, konsumtions- och distributionskrafter – proklamerat musikindustrins död. Argumentet jag förde fram var att musikindustrin inte alls var död, men att den å andra sidan inte var levande på det vis den tidigare varit. Musikindustrin befann sig istället i ett slags kreativt limbo, hävdade jag, i väntan på ledarskap.

    Frågan jag nu ställer mig: Hur blev det då? Hur står det till med de ”kreativa binära maskinerier” jag menade kännetecknade det odöda tillståndet? Och vad hände med ”det kreativa självets teknologier” och ”det otänktas medieapparater”?
