    Postmodern Management?: From Facts to Fiction in Theory and Practice1989Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 5, nr 3, s. 201-217Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Postmodernism has recently cropped up as a new buzz word in the organization and management sciences, and the purpose of this article is to critically examine its potential value in the discourse of organizations and management. The article starts with a discussion of the concept of postmodernism, showing that it is used; as an indicator of the present epoch (the postmodern age or condition), as a way of capturing a contemporary movement in the arts and literature (an “ism”), and finally as a particular mode of discourse. With the help of some of the basic postmodern assumptions and concepts, the article then proceeds to a review of contemporary Swedish organization and management theory and praxis. The review shows that the present situation can be characterized by the deconstruction of organization structures, the rejection of grand strategies, an emphasis on expressivism and the importance of coding. In the last section of the article the usefulness of the postmodern perspective for managerial purposes is discussed. It is also claimed that parallel with this deconstruction of organization structures and positive norms, it is possible to discern the reconstruction of social and cultural values developed in an open discourse and resulting in collective reason — and morals.

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

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

    Organizing disciplinary power in a knowledge organization2009Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 25, nr 2, s. 178-190Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article provides a systematic attempt to analyze the effects of performance appraisals, here conceptualized as tools for executing disciplinary power, and how the agency of employees is shaped. The article demonstrates how agency is enrolled by a broad set of disciplinary technologies aimed at behavior as well as the self, orchestrated in way that effectively short-circuits resistance. Drawing upon data collected from a Swedish subsidiary of a large American consultancy firm, the article provides a detailed account for the use of disciplinary technologies in knowledge-intensive work and other types of high-commitment work settings. Furthermore, the article pays specific attention to how punishments, rewards and human agency interact in this context.

    Differences in organizational preconditions for managers in genderized municipal services2016Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 32, nr 4, s. 209-219Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In contrast to much research concerned with differences in male and female managers’ leadership strategies, this study focuses on how organizational arrangements vary for managers in differently genderized contexts; it explores the opportunities for frontline managers in municipal services to fulfil their assignment. The organisational preconditions for over 400 managers of municipal health and social care, education and technical services are analysed in a cross-level and comparative research design. The results indicate that managers of feminized care services work in an environment with fewer resources, less organisational support and larger spans of control, than managers in masculinized municipal services. These results shed light on meso-level mechanisms involved in the unequal distribution of health risks among men and women in working life.

    Accomplish change or causing hesitance – Developing practices in professional service firms2017Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 33, nr 3, s. 185-194Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The scholarly proclaimed truce between professionals and managers in professional service firms (PSFs) is presently being threatened by changes in the business environment, calling for coordination superordinate to the single professions. The issue of managing professionals in PSFs consequently needs to be re-addressed. We do so by using correspondence analysis to explore the interrelatedness between change initiatives and responses to these changes, in an interview-based case study. Our results suggests that managers can successfully change management related practices without particular consideration of the professionals in the firm, but also that professionals can successfully change professional practices in an unassuming and “practice-like” fashion: with actions rather than with words. Managers who wish to change professional practices, however, need to negotiate the content, scope and purpose of the change initiative with the professionals in the firm.

    Annual general meetings - rituals of closure or ideal speech situations? A dual analysis2007Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 23, nr 2, s. 168-190Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses one of the cornerstones of corporate governance, namely the annual general meeting (AGM). The paper builds on field material collected from participating in 36 AGMs during the spring of 2004 as well as on literature on corporate governance. Since the amount of research on AGMs is sparse the research question is rather straightforward and formulated as what goes on at an AGM? The analysis of the field material builds on two separate theoretical frameworks: seeing the AGM as a ritual and an ideal speech situation. The paper notes that AGMs show several traces of an ideal speech situation but that they are also repetitive acts in which the actors seek jointly to support the closing of the accounting year.

    Executive Management in Radical Change – The Case of Karolinska University Hospital Merger2011Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 27, nr 1, s. 11-23Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on the merger of two Swedish university hospitals, this paper examines top management's work in implementing radical change initiatives. Our case confirms the limitations of the classic top-down approach to radical change in professional organizations. We also identify an important paradox: contrary to contemporary change literature prescription, initial managerial success seems to impair the change process further down the organization. A key finding is that when mergers are used as tools to effect radical change in politically ambiguous environment, management appears to be limited to initiate change and to take the role of the scapegoat due to inherent factors in the change process. By elucidating management's difficult role vis-à-vis multiple stakeholders, this paper contributes to one aspect of managerial agency discourse that is rarely discussed in detail.

    When accounting becomes information: From social and environmental accounts to informed capital market actorsIngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study analyses how accounts become identified as information. Using the empirical case of investor analysts and social and environmental issues, it finds that models’ categories structure the detection of accounts and form what becomes information. The availability of accounts as input to the models in turn limits how elaborate the models can be. Information- together with investor attributes and interpretative models- affects the outcome of any analysis, but should not be viewed as independent of its users or their models. Thereby when we fail to take information into consideration, when not reflecting on what is viewed or not viewed as information, we miss an important factor in explaining the outcome of an analysis or the popularity of certain models.

    Management consultants as improvising agents of stability2009Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 25, nr 3, s. 264-274Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Relatively few studies have paid theoretical as well as empirical attention to what use organizations have of management consultants and their services. By studying how buyers and sellers of management consulting services describe what management consulting is and represents, this study questions common understandings in the literature, i.e., that management consultants act as agents of change or as standardizers of organizational practice around the world. It is argued that consultants can be understood as playing the role of improvisers because there is considerable uncertainty among both buyers and sellers as to what use organizations really have of them. Playing a recognizable, yet indefinite role based on an institutionalized foundation, in both discourse and practice, of what actors such as consultants are supposed to do in certain situations, helps client organizations to reduce the uncertainty experienced. The conclusion is that management consultants can therefore be understood as agents of stability rather than agents of change.

    "Like a battalion of tanks": A critical analysis of stakeholder management2013Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 29, nr 3, s. 209-218Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper contributes to the literature on the political role and responsibilities of corporations. Following Deetz’s (1995) critical reading of stakeholder management and a critical methodology, the paper analyses how a large Swedish corporation manages conflicting stakeholder interests and rationales in a multi-stakeholder context. Throughout the case analysis, it is suggested that the corporation reinforces what Deetz (1995) refers to as an information mode, thus effectively hindering it from reaching a communication mode in which more genuine stakeholder dialogues are performed.

    Corporate social responsibility as corporate social control: The case of work-site health promotion2009Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 25, nr 1, s. 68-72Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the past decades work-site health promotion has become an increasingly popular strategy through which corporations and other employers are said to exercise social responsibility. Not only does this practice promise better health and wellbeing for employees; it can also contribute to generating sustainable and responsible organizations. As with all organizational activities we need, however, critically analyze the potential risks for single individuals and societies alike with comprehensive health promotion programs. Any activity of corporate social responsibility (CSR) can potentially be seen as an expression of organizational control through which all the more aspects of an organization's environment come to be enacted by the organization in a way favorable to the organization's aims and perspectives. By clothing an activity as ""socially responsible"", and more specifically as ""health promotion"", organizations may accomplish an essential task in a very sublime and efficient way: that of managing its environment in terms of desired and appropriate human behaviors. This unanticipated consequence of health promotion deserves attention in order to even better understand the potentials and pitfalls of modern CSR.

    Djursholm: A Study of an Executive Community2012Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 28, nr 3, s. 257-263Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This project explores the community of Djursholm that is situated some 10 km north of Stockholm as an example of an ‘executive community’. A key argument of the project is that the ideals and norms of contemporary ‘executive behavior’ can no longer be sought within the world of professional bureaucracies only. Since August 2010 I have been conducting an ethnographic study of Djursholm. I have approached this community inductively where my theoretical ideas on the construction of executive values-in-use have informed my preliminary research questions. Based on my observations Djursholm appears to be a good environment to explore the phenomenon of executive community in terms of nurturing or resisting an executive culture expressed through such phenomena as responsibility, discipline, organization and order; not only because there is a relatively large number of executives living there but primarily because it appears to be a community that is intensely the subject to the ideology of management.

    Management in the “neo-paternalistic organization”: The case of worksite health promotion at Scania2018Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 34, nr 3, s. 267-275Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a qualitative study of Work Site Health Promotion (WHP) at the large Swedish producer of trucks and buses, Scania. While the concept of WHP implies that it is employees’ improved health at work that is strived for, we suggest that its main area of intervention is neither the work environment, nor what employees do at work, but employees’ lifestyles. To capture the potential of WHP for the management of organization, we introduce the concept of “neo-paternalistic organizational control.” By this term we want to draw attention to how WHP shares paternalistic approaches’ tendency of disregarding the professional-private divide, while also drawing attention to how this extra-professional control dimension is at once less intrusive and more discriminatory than what is traditionally referred to as paternalism in the literature on managerial control.

    Strategy work in the public sector-A balancing act of competing discourses2018Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 34, nr 3, s. 225-232Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study uses the concept of interpretative repertoires, i.e., localized discourses, to examine how facts are constructed about strategic work in a central government agency. It analyzes strategic work in relation to the public sector context and draws attention to power struggles among different discourses in this context. The identified repertoires can be related to wider public sector management discourses that civil servants need to balance in their strategic work. These discourses can both enable and constrain strategy work, and we conclude that strategy in the public sector needs to be understood in relation to these discourses.

    Abstract [en]

    We are now witnessing the first generation born into liquid modernity – the millennials – for whom being primarily called on by society as consumers and experiencing the deepened significance and logic of life as a lottery (Bauman and Mauro, 2016) is natural (yet uncomfortable). The main point made is that the first ‘solid’ (sic!) generation of liquid consumers that Bauman wrote so vividly about is set to embark on adult life and enter organizations en masse as managers and workers. It is argued that the entry of the millennials further intensifies the ongoing subsidiarization process that is already taking place in organizations and means that the individualization of collective organizational problems will be even more concealed and difficult to detect. In relation to the millennials entering organizations, it is further argued that it is essential that Critical Management Studies (CMS) takes heed of the challenges that the entry of the millennials carry with them. A Baumanian framework informs us that this can only be done by avoiding nostalgia – going back-to-the-future.

    Decentering sensemaking: The Mann Gulch disaster revisited2023Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 39, nr 3, artikel-id 101279Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite previous efforts to deal with the ontological split between human subjects and reality, sensemaking has remained human-centered. We argue that human-centered sensemaking risks omitting constitutive elements of reality. To escape the ontological split, we decenter sensemaking and thus extend it in such a way that it allows seemingly unrelated and independent humans and nonhumans to become connected and interdependent with what is made sense of. Doing so allows us to demonstrate how a decentered understanding of reality can produce a radically different understanding of research phenomena. As a means to show the consequences of a decentered sensemaking, we revisit the Mann Gulch disaster and show that not all disasters can be avoided by better sensemaking or good management.

    Gender equality and liberal individualism: A critical reading of economist discourse in Sweden2014Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 30, nr 3, s. 306-316Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Although Sweden is considered egalitarian, very few women hold top corporate positions. The present study used critical discourse analysis to examine texts by the economist Henrekson (2004), contrasted with another economist Boschini (2004), within a Swedish Centre for Business and Policy Studies project designed to increase the number of women in top corporate positions. Contradictions appeared between Henrekson's ideological stance adhering to liberal individualism, and the implied, normative meaning of gender. Individual men lack agency regarding household and family, while individual women are positioned with agency and thus accountability. Traditional gender constructions and the removal of male agency may undermine the realization of proposed measures, and should be questioned if gender equality in top corporate positions is to be realized.

    Structures and processes in administrative change: A reply to Brunsson's reform and change discourse1991Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 7, nr 2, s. 143-150-Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A central debate in organizational theory concerns factors which bring about change. Nils Brunsson argues that reform can be regarded as part of organizational stability and routine rather than of change. One effective way of stopping reforms is to try to implement them, he writes. In this reply a framework of administrative change is presented and used in questioning Brunsson's conclusions. The main criticism concerns the role which an organization's members are given in organizational change, and the unspoken assumption that they always act cynically.

On this basis the paper suggests that health, athletic competitiveness and functional disability have become central markers of employability associated with three bio-politically defined classes. A middle class of individuals that work on their lifestyles and selves to match health and employability ideals; an elite class of individuals that take part in sports activities to prove their 'true' competitive nature; finally, an underclass of individuals that identify with their functional disabilities and make use of them opportunistically as resources for getting employment. The paper furthermore suggests that all three initiatives are expressions of a neoliberal governmentality that cancel out the liberal distinction between an economic world of work and a private and social world by inciting individuals to use their lives in full as human capital.

    Intra- and Interorganisational Learning Processes. An Empirical Comparison2003Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 19, s. 443-466Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The organisational learning literature has so far focused primarily on intraorganisational learning processes. However, during the last 10 years or so, a growing number of organisational learning studies have focused explicitly on interorganisational learning. So far this literature has concentrated on the requirements for such learning. Little attention has been devoted to examining the potentially unique dynamics of interorganisational learning processes. Consequently, few if any studies have examined whether interorganisational learning processes differ from traditional intraorganisational learning and, if so, in what respects. The purpose of this paper is to make an empirical comparison between intra- and interorganisational learning processes by drawing on a longitudinal qualitative case study of experiential learning processes within and between a business organisation and its partners, continued over a period of 3 years.

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

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

    Nordic strategy research—Topics, theories, and trends2016Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 32, nr 4, s. 220-230Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Strategy research occupies a central position in business studies, but despite its global reach mainly has been considered as geographically homogenous. This paper aims to contribute to a better and more nuanced understanding of the strategy field by assessing Nordic contributions to the international strategy field. Using a bibliometric approach it shows that the Nordics holds an increasingly strong position in international strategy research but also identifies differences. Denmark is the single most successful Nordic nation across all measures, and even matches the international forefront in citation per publication. The success appears related the degree of co-authorship with international strategy scholars. Together, findings establish that Nordic strategy research contributes strongly to the core of international strategy research. Implications for several stakeholder groups are provided.

    Tangible resources and the development of organizational capabilities2015Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 31, nr 1, s. 54-68Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Capabilities theory concerned with how firms develop organizational capabilities to improve firm competitiveness prioritizes intangible resources as antecedents of capabilities. This theory takes organizational capabilities to consist of routines that evolve over time by being enacted in their organizational contexts. Extant theory has largely left tangible resources as antecedents unstudied, thereby neglecting potentially important insight into how capabilities develop. This paper uses an explorative approach and qualitative data from product development in two world-leading Nordic firms to study tangible antecedents of organizational capabilities development. Our findings contribute to research by expanding the scope of antecedents to organizational capabilities, with implications for explaining the competitiveness of firms.

    Mutuality between selves and others in social entrepreneurship: Not a mission impossible?2022Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 38, nr 3, artikel-id 101219Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The social entrepreneurship (SE) discourse habitually casts social entrepreneurs as heroic, creating economic and social value, whereas those whom they strive to assist are portrayed as disadvantaged and in need of interventions. This implies an implicit differentiation between knowing, agentic entrepreneurs and less-knowing, more passive beneficiaries. In this article, we seek to unfold the subtle ordering of relations in SE and problematize power-related aspects and ideological influences that potentially overshadow dimensions of mutuality and relationality inherent to SE. From an examination of two cases, we hypothesize that differentiations between knowing selves and learning others tend to disintegrate when entrepreneurs and beneficiaries enter into closer interaction. Adopting a postcolonial framework, we identify three forms of relations in SE: transactional, ambiguous/interactional and transcending.
