    Globalisation and values in the Indian context2008In: Europe-Asia Dialogue on Business Spirituality / [ed] Laszlo Zsolnai, Antwerpen-Apeldoorn: Garant , 2008, p. 45-53Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Values, purposes and functions of European and Asian businesses is a topic of vital importance today. The book contains selected papers of the “Europe-Asia Dialogue on Business, Ethics & Spirituality” annual conference of the European SPES Forum held in 2006 in Budapest, Hungary. Scholars and practitioners from England, Norway, Sweden, and Hungary as well as from India, Indonesia, Japan, and the USA share their views on European and Asian ways of doing business.

    What are the basic differences between the ethical orientation of European and Asian businesses? How can European and Asian traditions of spirituality contribute to transforming contemporary management theory and praxis? Which new leadership roles emerge for spiritual growth and reflection in the workplace in Europe and Asia? The authors of the book believe that Europe and Asia can be inspired by each other, especially if they return to and apply creatively their own spiritual foundations

    Microfinance as Ethical Investments?2012In: International Journal of Business Ethics in Developing Economies, ISSN 2278-3172, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 7-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Responsible investments, SRI, have double or triple bottom-lines. The investor wants financial and some ethical return. Microfinance is offering credit to the poor without collateral security aiming at poverty-reduction and is commonly given to women. This research overview of recent studies of microfinance in India investigates the effects, problems and opportunities of microfinance as a social responsible investment. The overview revealed that, overall, the aims of microfinance are being met, particularly the empowerment of women. The reduction of poverty is also fairly successful, with signs, although uncertain, of long-term effects. Microfinance is also a tool for financial inclusion of the underprivileged. The self-help group (SHG) model, working as social collateral security, is efficient in peer monitoring and main cause for repayment rates over 90 %. The SHGs also have a social role. Problems found were over-indebtedness partly due to unregulated market and in certain cases high interest rates. The conclusion is that responsible investors have mainly two choices in microfinance: the socially directed investment, subsidizing interest rates; and the commercial direction with market based rates. Both ways have ethical risks that the investor must manage. The study also concludes that financial markets can learn from the SHG model of microfinance.

    The Transcendent Organization: A treatise on consciousness in organizations: theoretical discussion, conceptual development and empirical studies1992Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations are human constructs, and unless the organizational analysis takes into account a wider discussion of the relationship between the subject and the object the analysis ends up in relativism, anarchism, and confusion. There is a danger when we make the organization objective to such extent that it is viewed as an entity outside ourselves. Understanding of an organization is a collective phenomenon given by the prevailing fundamental assumptions in society, and is transferred by symbols, including language. It is argued that there is a need to go beyond, to transcend, the objective understanding of the organization. To transcend the objective status of the organization does not mean to replace one objectification with another, but to transcend to more abstract and holistic levels in consciousness. It is suggested that pure consciousness, the most fundamental and abstract level of consciousness, is fundamental and common to all humans and also unites mind and matter, as some quantum physicists suggest. The existence of a collective consciousness is also shown, as indicted by the so called field-effects of consciousness in several studies. Collective consciousness is defined as the average degree to which the individuals in a group reflect pure consciousness. It is argued that collective changes in the behavior and perception in groups of people are possible. The general perspective of consciousness and collective consciousness is applied more specifically to organizations. The Transcendent Organization exists - beyond the concrete objects we call organization - in the collective consciousness of the members of the organization in the dynamic interplay between the knowers, known, and process of knowing. The meanings as expressed in the goals, visions, and "culture" of the organization form a particular collective consciousness of the organization. It is also argued that the level of the collective consciousness of the organization determines the quality of its behavior in terms of adapting to the environment, creativity, and the members' autonomy. Some of the suggestions of the Transcendent Organization are studied empirically on managers and employees practicing meditation in two top management teams and in one company. The results illustrate that the taken for granted notions of organizations were transcended, that change processes coming from within the organization were started by raising the level of consciousness, and that field-effects of consciousness were indicated in small groups.

    Conceptualizing for managerial relevance in B2B research – A grounded theory approach2014In: The journal of business & industrial marketing, ISSN 0885-8624, E-ISSN 2052-1189, Vol. 29, no 7-8, p. 626-632Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - This study aims to formulate recommendations for business-to-business (B2B) researchers, with the potential to increase the extent to which B2B research is relevant to managers.

    Design/methodology/approach - These recommendations are derived from and inspired by the grounded theory methodology.

    Findings - In this article, we argue that conceptualizations which are potentially relevant to managers are those that discover new perspectives, simplify complexity, enable managers to take action and have an instant grab. To accomplish this as researchers, the authors emphasize fostering a beginner's mind, creating umbrella models, increasing the level of abstraction of concepts and finding the core process in data.

    Originality/value - In this article, we translate the basic principles within the grounded theory methodology into more general recommendations that can be used by B2B researchers.

    The art of discovering - experiences of novice researchers2016In: Qualitative Research Journal, ISSN 1443-9883, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 125-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize and analyze novice researchers' experiences of the Glaserian grounded theory methodology. Design/methodology/approach - The grounded theory analytical procedures were applied. Findings - The paper suggests that the creative freedom inherited in the Glaserian grounded theory approach empowers novice researchers, and many students reported positive emotions related to this freedom. At the same time, this freedom can represent a difficulty. Several students thought the tabula rasa instruction was something of a paradox, and the instructions within the methodology to be without preconceptions, let the theory emerge, and find the social process was difficult for most students to understand. However, some students found that they could counteract this difficulty via a systematic coding process and by working in pairs that enabled them to conduct an analytical dialogue. Originality/value - This is the first study that investigates the way that novice researchers experience the Glaserian grounded theory methodology.
