Harnessing plurality: on the managing accounting and control of a collaborative practice
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the field of management accounting and control of inter-organizational collaboration by researching how they are managed and accounted for. We turn thus to the management accounting and control practices in an inter-organizational collaboration called “Robotdalen”, a Swedish robotics initiative that aims at “enabling commercial success of new ideas and research within robotics and automation” (Robotdalen 2012) and ask: how is Robotdalen managed and accounted for? The results of the study show how Robotdalen turns aspects of the inter-organizational relation into intra-organizational ones by among others things, developing its own identity.
