    More peace for less money: Measurement and accountability in the Swedish Armed Forces2005In: Financial Accountability and Management, ISSN 0267-4424, E-ISSN 1468-0408, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 467-484Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies of measurement and accountability are leading public sector transformation. By examining military work, this paper addresses the relationship between measurements and accountability by highlighting the measurements. Evidence was gathered from documents, political statements and field research. Several layers of accountability systems were found in the organisation. The principal can be the weak link in an accountability relationship if the measurement agenda is in the hands of the agent. The problems seem to go beyond performance and output, and a more fundamental question is challenging the public sector: `Are we doing the right things?' Or an even more dramatic existential question arises: `Why do we exist?'

    Value for money and the rule of law: the (new) performance audit in Sweden2011In: International Journal of Public Sector Management, ISSN 0951-3558, E-ISSN 1758-6666, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 107-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to develop a classification scheme of different types of value for money(VFM) audits with different degrees of compliance audit, and to classify the performance audits carriedout by the Swedish National Audit Office (SNAO) during its first six years as an independent stateaudit organization reporting to parliament.

    Design/methodology/approach – The empirical data were gathered from all of the 150 auditreports published by the SNAO from its establishment in 2003 to the end of 2008. Seminars werearranged to discuss the classifications for validation.

    Findings – The focus on traditional VFM audits (the “Three Es”) is unusual. Most audits carried outby the SNAO combine different types of extended VFM audits with compliance audit. On the onehand, they audit how the government and/or central agencies fulfil their mandates (from good to bad).On the other, they audit how the government and/or central agencies adhere to legislation, rules andpolicies (right or wrong). In some cases, the SNAO equates compliance audit with performance audit.

    Practical implications – The authors have verbalised and visualised performance audit activities of interest not only to state auditors, but also to external stakeholders. One practical implication is thatthe Swedish national audit committee has conducted an evaluation of the SNAO that is partly based onthe national report of this study, and has proposed a stronger focus on the Three Es.

    Originality/value – The study addresses a new approach in terms of a classification scheme forperformance audits, consisting of eight types.

    Life With a Sub-Contractor: New Technology and Management Accounting1988In: Accounting, Organizations and Society, ISSN 0361-3682, E-ISSN 1873-6289, Vol. 13, no 5, p. 513-532Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The kind of new technology that has been installed in advanced industrial production at an increasing rateover the last few years sets a new stage for the development of management accounting. Flexibility makesextreme adaptation of production to meet customer demands possible. Mass production of individualizedproducts makes product costing problematic. Control of operation has to be decentralized while the designof production systems has to be centralized. The function and use of a traditional management accountingsystem should be questioned. What are the important issues that prompt industries to install newtechnology in the first place? Is it flexibility or is it quality that is the prime mover? Is it both? Or might itbe efficiency? Whatever the case may be, it is necessary to clarify trade-offs between aspects of the newproduction facilities. Causal links between activities and costs have to be reestablished. The simplerelations between volume and costs are no longer valid. This paper deals with these issues against abackground of current research on local information needs in automated industrial production and asolution linking local and central systems is proposed.

    Exploring public sector managers´ preferences for attracting consultants or academics as external experts2012In: Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management/Emerald, ISSN 1176-6093, E-ISSN 1758-7654, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 205-227Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the reasons why public sector managers approacheither consultants or academics for their help in solving problems related to public sector accountingand management reforms.

    Design/methodology/approach – A field study based on reactions to real-life constructs andanswers to questions about the experiences of public sector managers in Italian, Dutch and Swedishcentral government agencies.

    Findings – Public sector managers approach consultants, due to their experience-based knowledge,for solving well-defined practical and technical problems. In the case of tacit knowledge, a stronginteraction between the public sector manager and the consultant, denoted as socialization, is thetypical way of knowledge transfer. In accordance with expectations, public sector managers approachacademics for advice regarding value-laden problems in their organization. However, academics also give advice about practical and technical issues, usually being the primary domain of consultants, butoften when impartial advice is required. Although the authors expected academics to transferknowledge rather detached from their clients (interiorization), this was not corroborated, because oftenacademics work closely with their counterparts in the client organization.Research limitations/implications – The theoretical framework was helpful in explaining therole of consultants, but it required refinement in explaining the role of academics as external experts.

    Practical implications – The paper contributes to a better articulated set of preferences of publicsector managers in asking advice from either a consultant or an academic.

    Originality/value – The paper offers a simultaneous and systematic empirical examination of theroles that consultants and academics play in public sector management and accounting reforms.
