    Commercialized professionalism on the field of management consulting2013In: Journal of Organizational Change Management, ISSN 0953-4814, E-ISSN 1758-7816, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 265-285Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore and construct a model for the mechanisms for authorization of actors in contemporary society performing in the role of the expert.

    Design/methodology/approach – The study used qualitative analyses of about 70 interviews with management consultants in small/middle-sized nationally based (in Sweden) consultancies, and with buyers in public organizations of their services. The data are, however, expected to represent more general tendencies of the mechanisms for authorization of experts such as management consultants. The interviews were seen as narratives from the field and interpreted qualitatively in order to search for patterns and categories.

    Findings – Systems for professionalism in practice among experts such as management consultants do not follow the routes suggested by traditional theories of professions. It is another system for professionalism where success in commercialisation means authorization in the role of the expert on the market. The mechanism for authorization is trust and the way to construct this is that the single expert and the organizations he or she represents emphasize versatility, availability, relevance and differentiation in their practice as experts.

    Research limitations/implications – There is a growth in numbers, competence areas and importance of these forms of expert work in contemporary society. Understanding this is necessary and this study offers a model that explains this.

    Practical implications – Markets for vague forms of experts, such as management consultants, are emerging. These are challenges faced by many individuals and organizations today.

    Social implications – More individuals work under consulting conditions, more organizations tend to hire more external experts of various kinds on temporary bases instead of employing them, and the number of expert organizations is emerging and their size is increasing.

    Originality/value – Little attention has been devoted to explanations of how authorization in practice is constructed and achieved among the new experts. This study offers a model for how this can be understood.

    Consulting in Legoland: the jazz of small-scale management consultation in the improvisation on standards2001Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Large global management consultancies of US or Semi-US origin are often seen as important carriers of uniformity in management knowledge across the globe. This is an important characteristic of the recent development of the industry on a macro level, but one may question whether it is representative to let these firms be “spokespersons” for the field as a whole. This paper argues that the standards these actors travel in may constitute a standardised Legoland for consulting in the world, but that this Legoland is far from the reality of small and medium-sized locally based consulting firms. It is argued that they live in a world of standards for management and consultation, where the most important strategy for survival is to improvise.

    Den institutionella omvärlden2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ledare styr inte själva fullt ut över inriktningen på och tidpunkten för sina beslut, vare sig de är medvetna om det eller inte. Deras handlingsramar begränsas av institutionella betingelser i deras omvärld - vad som är tekniskt, ekonomiskt, socialt och kulturellt möjligt i olika sammanhang. Det betyder att organisationer och dras ledare inte kan isoleras från vad som på går runt omkring dem. Med en bättre förståelse för deras omvärld - och hur detta påverkar hur de tänker, vad de gör och varför de gör det - får beslutsfattare också bättre möjligheter att fatta mer övervägda beslut. Avsikten med den här boken är att förklara vad den institutionella omvärlden består av och på vilka sätt enskilda organisationer påverkas.

    Dåliga kunder gör bra affärer!: Ett dilemma i offentlig upphandling2015Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    LOU bygger på idén att inköp kan och bör göras på samma sätt på alla marknader. Men det finns många slags marknader och ofta är det inte ändamålsenligt att handla enligt LOU. Genom att vara ”dåliga kunder” och inte helt följa reglerna i LOU, kan offentliga organisationer göra bättre inköp. Är sådana regelbrott demokratiskt försvarbara? Författaren diskuterar offentliga organisationers inköpsverksamhet med utgångspunkt i en studie av hur upphandlingar av tjänster från managementkonsulter går till. Sådana tjänster är komplexa och ställer offentliga upphandlare inför svåra avvägningar.Författaren diskuterar offentliga organisationers inköpsverksamhet med utgångspunkt i en studie av hur upphandlingar av tjänster från managementkonsulter går till.

    Management consultants as improvising agents of stability2009In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 25, no 3, p. 264-274Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.
