    The development of Swedish business journalism: Historical roots of an organisational field2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary Swedish business journalism is an established organisational field with shared practice within and across organisations. Using a historical perspective, this dissertation investigates the early formation of this field and the formation of a shared meaning system for business journalism. Addressing the question of how and why the field emerged, the study contributes to institutional approaches in organisational analysis and theories about field development.

    Drawing on a qualitative longitudinal study, the analysis explores the source of today’s field of business journalism and examines the individuals, organisations, and activities that, during the 1960s and 1970s, laid the groundwork for subsequent field development. Five Swedish newspaper organisations are examined in detail: two business weeklies, Affärsvärlden and Veckans Affärer; the business daily,Dagens industri; and two general dailies, Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet. In particular, the study analyses the competencies that was considered necessary for producing business news; the models that functioned as positive examples for business journalists; and the accepted ways of selecting and presenting business news.

    The study concludes that nascent field formation developed through institutional entrepreneurial processes in the interplay among individuals, organisations, and societal developments. As individuals carried institutional logics from their previous affiliations in business or journalism, they contributed to the nascent field formation – not by breaking with their past, but by continuing, in a new setting, previous ways of approaching their work. The two institutional logics of business and journalism also permeated the newspaper organisations in which these individuals were active. The organisations functioned as platforms that enabled the early practice while setting boundaries for its development. The results suggest that fields develop incrementally and that institutional entrepreneurial processes embody greater continuity and stability than previous research in the area has suggested.

    The news in management-speak2010In: The rise of management-speak / [ed] Björn Rombach & Patrik Zapata, Stockholm: Santérus Academic Press Sweden, 2010Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract for the entire book:

    Essays about why people who speak management-language always seem to win arguments, not because they know more, but because they speak the right language.When important decisions are made - whether in organizations or in a public debate - the winner is almost certainly a management-speaker. It does not matter if the opponent is a well informed, committed and ­competent professional, a well prepared representative of an interest group, a politician with a large backing or a journalist who has been digging deep, still, the management-speaker gets the last say.The management-speakers do not have better knowledge of the factual ­matters, they are not more devoted than others, they do not represent ­stronger interests and they do not know anything more about the present or the future than other people. They are successful in managing decisions and decision makers into the right direction, because they speak a more ­powerful language than the others - the Management-Speak.This book contains essays on the language management-speak, its ­significance and the use of it. The essays are addressed to all readers who seek an answer to the question why management-speak really matters.

    University-society collaboration on the agenda: The rhetoric of expectations2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to contribute to the knowledge on how the concept of ‘collaboration’ is being

    produced and reproduced – and filled with meaning – as it is articulated in news content and

    opinion articles about the organisation of knowledge production within higher education in

    Sweden. We build on a textual analysis on the public discussion in the aftermath of the

    announcement of the research policy bill “Knowledge in collaboration” (Prop 2016/17:50)

    and take as a point of departure that social phenomena are constructed and given meaning

    through talk and texts. Our analysis shows that the concept ‘collaboration’ carry certain

    expectations and values concerning the organisation of knowledge production, and highlights

    that these ideas are not only polarised among actor groups, as well as within groups, but also

    contain political ambitions. The concept of collaboration can be interpreted as an idea that

    provides universities with prescriptions and guidelines for how to do their everyday work –

    what kinds of activity is valued and appropriated and what is downplayed and over time

    maybe even sorted out.

    En berättelse om organisering2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En berättelse om organisering blandar fiktion med organisationsteorins grunder. Boken drivs framåt av vad som händer på det nystartade modeföretaget Mess. Genom skildringen av Mess och människorna i och runt omkring företaget ser vi framgångar, konflikter och utmaningar i organisationsteorins ljus. Mötet mellan den fiktiva berättelsen och de teoretiska fördjupningarna ger grundläggande förståelse för organisationsteorins olika delområden, såsom ledarskap, makt, motivation, kultur och beslutsfattande. Boken erbjuder kunskap och reflektion om varför organisation och organisering är centrala begrepp för att förstå det samhälle vi lever i.

    Everyday narratives: CEO rhetoric on Twitter2017In: Journal of Organizational Change Management, ISSN 0953-4814, E-ISSN 1758-7816, Vol. 30, no 3, 312-322 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    This paper investigates the everyday CEO communication in social media, with particular focus on Twitter. The purpose is to contribute with insights on how expectations on corporate leaders to be present in social media are translated into everyday communication practice and thereby add to literature on narrative leadership.

    Design/methodology/approach

    A content analysis of the twitter feed of Håkan Nygren, the CEO of the Swedish digital bank Nordnet. In order to answer the question – what are the stories and the rhetoric of a CEO in the banking sector an ordinary day? – the data set covers the totality of tweets by Nygren from April, 10, 2013 to December, 31, 2015.

    Findings

    The everyday Twitter narrative of Nyberg challenges established ideas of social media about personalised tone and interactions by highlighting three characteristics: (a) limited scope of actors and content including the local Nordnet sphere; (b) a formal tone in the tweets mainly based on corporate information and presentation; and (c) few examples of dialogue and a limited number of voices outside of Nordnet. The dataset of Nyberg’s Twitter feed during a period without any major events or crises for Nordnet paints a picture of a rather non-personal CEO with limited ideas on his mind to share online and with few friends.

    Originality/value

    Studies on social media and corporate communication have largely focused on organisational crises. This study focuses on everyday narratives of managers and proves that the role of social media must be interpreted more broadly and as playing multiple roles, and that these roles are changing due to time and situation.

    Hierarchisation and fuzziness: The power of interlinked categories in urban planning2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we ask how categories enable and constrain action in complex and long-term processes of municipal urban planning. Whereas previous studies to a large extent have focused on the conditions for corporations and their products, we develop theoretical insights about categorisation from the more scarcely investigated empirical context of the public sector. By an in-depth investigation of how the Swedish municipality of Varberg managed and organized large, complex urban planning changes, we show how two significantly different but closely interlinked categories simultaneously enabled and limited the scope and focus of these large-scale changes. More specifically we identify two distinct categories – one “project category” used to organize the specific urban planning process, and one “vision category” developed to govern the municipality as a whole – and explore how they influence one another and how they both individually and together shape the focus and scope of the change process. Through these two categories the complex and long-term planning is made sense of and is given structure and steerage in terms of both generative capabilities and constraints. The findings of the study of Varberg open up for further reflections about how categorisation creates power and action capabilities and its implications on democratic processes. Organisational categories, when they are taken on-board, are often perceived as natural and neutral and are valued because they decrease “noise” and give impetus for municipal development. Our study shows the need to also ask questions about what are sorted out and excluded through such processes of categorisations and what actor groups in society may not be allowed to make their voices heard and to influence such change processes.

    Värdeladdad organisering: kategoriers betydelse för stadsutvecklingsarbete2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of this report is the organising of on-going urban developments taking place within the municipality of Varberg. Large, public initiatives on urban planning often run over long time periods, involve multiple actors in society, and are characterised by uncertainty and lack of information. With the help of organisation theory on social categories we show how room for manoeuvre and conditions for activity are created in the on-going developments in Varberg. Our analysis highlights in particular two categories that are governing the urban planning of the municipality: (a) three change processes are organised into one single “City development project” and (b) the overarching governance is articulated through a vision statement for the municipality to become the creative centre of the west coast in year 2025. Categories play a dual role as they both enable and constrain organizational as well as individual behaviour. More specifically, the study shows how some projects, such as the sub-project about the new residential neighbourhood West Port (Västerport) by the sea, and some ideas, such as the assumption that urban development leads creativity are highlighted and prioritised as a consequence of the categories identified. However, the study also reveals how, simultaneously, other projects and issues are downplayed or remain in the background. The findings of the study of Varberg open up for further reflections about democratic implications of the use of organisational categories, that often, when they are taken on-board, are perceived as natural and neutral, are valued because they decrease “noise” and give impetus for municipal development. Another side of the use of categories, however, is about what questions, issues and perspectives that are sorted out and excluded through such processes of categorisations and what actor groups in society are not allowed to make their voices heard and to influence such change processes.

    Media scandals as routine: The construction of corporate moral order2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the years we have witnessed an increased scrutiny of corporate responsibilities and evaluations of the morality of organizations and leaders as a part of the construction of a moral order. In this paper, we understand the on-going moralization of organizational behaviour from the perspective of media scandals. Whereas media scandals often are both understood and studied as single events, research has also emphasised the interrelated nature of scandals. We build on previous studies and develop insights on how news media scandals can take a repetitive form over time, and elaborate on what role media scandals about corporate behaviour play in challenging the moral order and shaping social norms about what it means to be a responsible organization. Empirically, the paper builds on a content analysis of “news media scandals” – when H&M, a large Swedish textile company, recurrently was accused for misconduct and irresponsible behaviour – over a period of 18 years, from 1995 to 2012. One key conclusion is that even though both the logic of media and the character of a scandal suggest some kind of novelty and norm breaking aspect, the dynamics of the media scandal of H&M indicate that the trajectory of the scandals is rather repetitive and even routinized. The routinized media scandal leads to a one-dimensional media image of H&M as a moral actor. Instead of reflecting different views on complex moral or responsibility issues – the media texts rather confirm and strengthen previous media narratives of H&M. The findings also raise questions about the immediate and long-term consequences of a routinized media scandal. When a media scandal becomes routinized, we can expect it to influence the dynamics of the legitimizing and delegitimizing of the organizational behaviour.

    Medierna och det goda företaget2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hållbart företagande, företags samhällsansvar eller CSR – corporate social responsibility – är begrepp som gemensamt vittnar om ett ökat intresse för frågor som rör företagens roll och ansvar i samhället. Det är dock långt ifrån självklart vad detta ansvar innefattar. Den här rapporten analyserar mediernas makt att forma uppfattningar om ansvar. Vad lyfts fram och vad väljs bort när moraliskt laddade frågor granskas? Varför blir vissa organisationer, ledare och ansvarsfrågor synligare än andra? Vilken roll har medierna för att sätta agendan för vad som är företagens ansvar och vad som är ett ansvarsfullt agerande? Hur ser de mediala bilderna av ansvar ut?

    Newcomers conserving the old: transformation processes in the field of news journalism2012In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 28, no 1, 65-76 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As new actors become online news producers in a changing media landscape, questions about field transformation are raised. This paper adds to institutional theory on how novel actors are incorporated into mature organizational fields and change structures of domination. We explore online news flow in the Swedish media and blogosphere about an executive remuneration program. The findings demonstrate that novel actors are incorporated into the field of news journalism, as key actors with dominant positions invite them to participate. Newcomers remain peripheral and lack the capacity to alter field positions. Structures of domination are not altered; instead, positions of key field actors are strengthened. Newcomers in mature fields serve as forces not only for transformation, but also conservation.
