    Markets, Trust, and the Construction of Macro-Organizations2018In: Organizing and Reorganizing Markets / [ed] Nils Brunsson, Mats Jutterström, Oxford University Press, 2018, p. 136-152Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How can buyers know what they are buying? In many markets this is no trivial problem, particularly for ambitious, contemporary consumers who care about the way a product has been produced and its effects on health or the physical environment. Buyers have little choice but to trust sellers’ descriptions of the origins and effects of the product, which, in turn, evokes the question of how the buyers can trust the sellers. We describe how the problem of trust has justified the production of new formal organizations, such as certification organizations, accreditation organizations, meta-organizations for the accreditation organizations, and meta-meta-organizations for these meta-organizations. In order to create trust in organizations at one level, a new level of organizations has been created for monitoring the lower level. We argue that such a ‘macro-organization’ is unlikely to represent a stable solution, but has inherent tendencies for further growth.

    Organizing for trust in Markets : On certification, markets and organization2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from a research project on certification as an important mechanism for global order in contemporary society. The project is based on an interest in how and why the practice of certification arises and how it develops. However, the kind of certification that we have investigated proved to be a phenomenon with a complex context, and in order to understand the development of certification practices, that context has to be understood as well. Certification proved to be closely connected to issues of market construction, market organization and trust in markets and organizations – and those issues will be touched upon as well.

    Organizing and Reorganizing Markets2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizing and Reorganizing Markets brings organization theory to the study of markets. The difference between markets and organizations is often exaggerated. Organizing exists in addition to other processes and phenomena that form markets: the mutual adaption among sellers and buyers as described in mainstream economics, and the institutions described in institutional economics and economic sociology. Market organization can be analysed with the same type of theories used for analysing organization within formal organizations. Through the use of many empirical examples, the book demonstrates how this can be done.The authors argue that the way a certain market is organized can be understood as the (intermediate) result of previous organizing processes. Questions discussed include: 'What drives market organizing and reorganizing processes? What makes various organizations intervene as market organizers? And, how are the specific contents of market organization determined?' The answers to these questions help to analyse similarities and differences among organizing processes in formal organizations andthose in markets.Arguments are illustrated by in-depth studies of many types of markets. The book will open up markets as a field of study for scholars of organization.

    Order in drug markets? Partial organization and market practice under illegal conditions2013In: European Society for Social Drug Research (ESSD): Abstracts, 2013, p. 26-26Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Most studies of market organization in economic sociology mainly deals with its legal forms, as they also recognize the significant role states play in promoting and organizing legal markets. Very few efforts have been made to further the understanding of illegal markets. Contrary to these studies, the intention of this paper is to analyze organization in the largely overlooked illegal markets, where states are absent as market promoting forces. More specifically, the study analyzes organization in markets for illicit drugs. How are operations on drug markets organized and how are market practices formed given that the conditions of exchange are defined as illegal by the state? The main theoretical framework is derived from organizational sociology with the purpose of analyzing partial organization outside formal organizations. Thus, applying organizational theory to drug markets, the paper will show how and to what degree different aspects of the market are organized. Empirically, the study is, in a first phase of a larger project, based on a qualitative analysis of material from major drug trade offences in Sweden. Although the study uses empirical material from Sweden, many of the cases have European and International connections. The main contribution of the paper is to provide new knowledge of how market organization emerges beyond the promoting forces of states as well as to contribute with empirical results vital to the development of long-term strategies to combat drug use and improve public health.

    Organizing matters:: how ‘the social dimension’ gets lost in sustainability projects2010In: Sustainable Development, ISSN 0968-0802, E-ISSN 1099-1719, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 18-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the conditions for taking the social dimension into consideration when trying to aim for increased sustainability through activities organized in projects. Among the three commonly accepted pillars of sustainable development – economic, ecological and social – the social dimension is often the most vague and least explicit in practical attempts to shape sustainable development. The aim with this study is to explore the role of organizing in shaping the balance between the pillars. The two cases examined are projects explicitly related to sustainable development goals set by the national government or parliament and implemented by other actors. The cases concern two topics: food production and electromagnetic fields. On the basis of relevant organizational dimensions and case analyses, the paper shows how the organization of sustainability shapes the ways in which the projects articulate the social dimension. This leads to practical advice for organizing new projects in the future. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd and ERP Environment.

    Granskningssamhället och det nya Europa: när de baltiska staterna sattes på prov2012Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här skriften analyseras det framväxande granskningssamhället, med utgångspunkt i hur de baltiska staterna synades inför EU-inträdet. Då länderna skulle bli en del av det nya Europa öppnade de sig för granskning av bl.a. EU-kommissionen, EBRD och Transparency International. Men frågan är om granskning verkligen är en så neutral praktik som det ges sken av?

    Genom att jämföra granskning av stater med revision av företag visar författaren på att granskningssamhället inte bara skapar ordning, utan ensärskild ordning. Granskningsförfaranden blir slagkraftiga styrningsmekanismer mot bestämda mål, just eftersom de oftast framställs och uppfattas som värderingsfria och neutrala teknologier. rapporter, siffror och rankningar reflekterar verkligheten samtidigt som de är med och konstruerar den.

    Demonstration and Dialogue: Mediation in Swedish Nuclear Waste Management2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report analyses mediation and mediators in Swedish nuclear waste management. Mediation is about establishing agreement and building common knowledge. It is argued that demonstrations and dialogue are the two prominent approaches to mediation in Swedish nuclear waste management. Mediation through demonstration is about showing, displaying, and pointing out a path to safe disposal for inspection. It implies a strict division between demonstrator and audience. Mediation through dialogue on the other hand, is about collective acknowledgements of uncertainty and suspensions of judgement creating room for broader discussion.

    In Sweden, it is the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co. (SKB) that is tasked with finding a method and a site for the final disposal of the nation’s nuclear waste. Two different legislative frameworks cover this process.

    In accordance with the Act on Nuclear Activities, SKB is required to demonstrate the safety of its planned nuclear waste management system to the government, while in respect of the Swedish Environmental Code, they are obliged to organize consultations with the public.

    How SKB combines these requirements is the main question under investigation in this report in relation to materials deriving from three empirical settings: 1) SKB’s safety analyses, 2) SKB’s public consultation activities and 3) the ‘dialogue projects’, initiated by other actors than SKB broadening the public arena for discussion. In conclusion, an attempt is made to characterise the longterm interplay of demonstration and dialogue in Swedish nuclear waste management.

    Demonstrating Nuclear Fuel Safety: Validating New Build: The Enduring Template of Swedish Nuclear Waste Management2010In: Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences, ISSN 1943-8168, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 197-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1970s, the template for Swedish nuclear waste management has been for industry to deliver “nuclear fuel safety” after first demonstrating to government authority how and where it can be achieved. In other words, nuclear fuel safety has been something to be publicly witnessed before it is decided whether or not industry should be allowed to carry on implementing its plans. From the outset, these industry plans encompassed the completion of the Swedish nuclear power programme itself, as this was made contingent upon a demonstrated solution to the waste problem. However, after a national referendum on the future of nuclear power in 1980, industrial progress in nuclear fuel safety became directly connected with a safe phase out of a 12-reactor programme within 25 years of its completion. As plans for such a phase out have in turn grown subject to indefinite postponement, and as opposition to nuclear power has progressively mellowed, so the nuclear industry's highly resilient nuclear fuel safety programme appears set again today to validate nuclear new build both at home and abroad. Drawing on studies of three specific management tools - safety analyses, EIA consultations and alternative “dialogue projects” - this article seeks to chart the unremitting and indomitable Swedish commitment to the mediation of nuclear waste management through industrial demonstration as this has withstood various attempts to introduce a greater element of public dialogue into the policy process in response to both siting conflicts and new environmental legislation.

    Att förenkla administrationen av jordbrukspolitiken - lättare sagt än gjort2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sieps (Svenska institutet för europapolitiska studier) fick i juli 2007 i uppdrag av Kungl. Skogs- och Lantbruksakademien (KSLA) att utifrån en konferens på temat ”Förenkla jordbruks­politiken – lättare sagt än gjort” – arrangerat av kommittén för jordbrukets internationalisering vid KSLA den 30 maj 2007– beskriva och analysera några av de insatser och hinder som förekommer i svenska myndigheters arbete med regel­förenkling i jordbrukspolitiken.

     

    Rapportförfattaren vill efter slutfört uppdrag lyfta fram betydelsen av att en politisk prioritering av förenklingar – i det här fallet i form av ett mål: med regelförenklingar ska jord­bruksnäringens administrativa kostnader minska med 25 procent till år 2010 (Näringsdepartementet 2007) – kräver politiska omprövningar också av den politik som ligger bakom de olika regelverken. Det regelkrångel som jordbruksnäringen upplever (LRF 2007a, Nutek 2007, NNR 2006) ska inte i huvudsak reglerna i sig eller deras tillämpning lastas för. En märkbar förändring i företagens vardag, som varit ett annat sätt att uttrycka det 25-procentiga målet (Näringsdepartementet 2007), blir verkligt kännbar, tror författaren, först efter det att man sänkt de krav som riktas mot lantbrukaren i miljö- och djurskyddslagstiftning och i ansökningar och kontroll av europeiskt jordbruksstöd.

     

    I vilken utsträckning som större sådana omprövningar på både europeisk och nationell nivå är aktuella, är förstås svårare att spekulera i, men frågan berörs till viss del i rapporten.  Under­sökningen kretsar istället framförallt kring de svenska försöken på statlig, regional och kommunal nivå att förenkla – men då givet de just nu rådande och övergripande politiska målen med den europeiska jordbrukspolitiken. Rapporten innehåller några förslag till förenklingar, att lägga till de redan långa listor som genererats under bland annat Jordbruksverkets förenklings­projekt (Jordbruksverket 2007).

     

    Till skillnad från många tidigare texter om administrativa kostnader är inte de av regler ”drabbade”, i det här fallet lant­brukarna, rikligt representerade. Istället ska rapporten ses som ett försök att skildra regelförenklingsproblematiken sedd ur regeringskansliets och tillsynsmyndigheternas eget perspektiv, på departement, ämbetsverk, länsstyrelse och kommun.

    Myndigheterna och integrationspolitiken2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Frågan om de statliga myndigheternas ansvar för integrationspolitikens genomförande har ägnats ett ökande politiskt intresse. Den nu 20 år gamla förordningen (1986:856) som uppmanar alla myndigheter att - bland annat - beakta samhällets etniska och kulturella mångfald när de utformar ochbedriver sin verksamhet, har inte fått tillräckligt genomslag,menar regeringen (skr. 2001/02:129).

    Flera rapporter och granskningar från verk, stabsmyndigheter och ombudsmän harlyft fram brister i myndigheters sätt att hantera och införliva de integrationspolitiska målen i sin verksamhet (RiR 2005:5,Integrationsverket 2006, DO 2006).

    Som en del i arbetet med att förtydliga de statliga myndigheternas ansvar för integrationspolitikens genomförande, gav den Integrationspolitiska kommittén i uppdrag till Score att syna några aspekter av myndigheternas syn på deras eget integrationsarbete. Med utgångspunkt i de direktiv kommittén formulerade för denna studie – men också utifrån andra perspektiv som tillkommit under studiens genomförande - har utredaren sökt svar på följande frågor:

    • Vilka insatser genomför myndigheterna för att nå de integrationspolitiska målen?

    • Vilka strukturella aspekter anser myndigheterna hindra genomförandet av integrationspolitiken?

    • Hur kan styrningen av myndigheterna förbättras för att öka möjligheterna att nå de integrationspolitiska målen?

    • Vilka åtgärder kan vidtas för att sprida kunskapen om hur olika myndigheter bör ta hänsyn till de integrationspolitiska målen?

    Abstract [en]

    The professional communicators inside the Swedish Government Offices are today 140 (compared to a single one 40 years ago and just twenty 15 years ago), giving support to the idea that the media now has a major impact on everyday business inside the Government. This article shows that this partly true, as the media mainly have an effect on the politicians, the partisan ministerial staff and the communicators. But the relationship between the Government Offices and the media could also be turned around. The Government have resources for external communication no lesser than an international news agency’s, and does on a daily basis deliver an impressive amount of press releases and conferences – and information leaks – that the media has to handle. This article examines and analyses how the Swedish Government Offices, trough new posts, units and strategies, has institutionalised and centralised its’ media contacts during the last 40 years, as well as the reasons and the internal consequences of this development.

    Abstract [en]

    While research concerning ethical competence in medical practice is frequent, ethical competence in health care management is less often studied. This article focuses ethical competence and its preconditions with regard to health care managers’ identification and handling of conflicts of interest. The article is based on empirical research. The aim is to highlight the importance of managers’ ethical competence and what such competence need to contain in order to promote ethical responsibility and a healthy working environment. Of great importance for success are having rational emotions, an adequate ethical language and communicative skills in order to promote dialogue. But the political and administrative control system also needs to clearly articulate the ethical dimensions of the managers’ task, allocate resources for training in ethics, and ensure that support systems and evaluation focus not only on finances but also on the value-rational aspects with regard to what the health care organization is aimed for.

    På spaning efter etik: Etisk kompetens och ansvarstagande för ledning och styrning av hälso- och sjukvården2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kraven på vårdens professioner och chefer är höga. De förväntas ge en god och säker vård på lika villkor till hela befolkningen, administrera, prioritera och arbeta kostnadseffektivt. Men hälso- och sjukvården fungerar inte som den ska. Arbetsmiljön är osund, sjuksköterskor lämnar yrket, vården är ojämlik och svårt sjuka patienter får vänta i långa köer. Detta gör att människors liv, hälsa och värdighet står på spel.

    På spaning efter etik uppmärksammar tre nyckelgrupper av aktörer som genom sina beslut har ett stort inflytande över vårdens villkor: politiker, opolitiska chefstjänstemän och vårdgivarnas högsta chefer i landstingets ledningsorganisation. Hur ser de på sitt etiska ansvar för hälso- och sjukvården? Vilka etiska bedömningar och konsekvensanalyser gör de? Och vilken etisk kompetens fordras för att de ska kunna ta ett etiskt ansvar för vårdens villkor genom ledning, styrning och organisation på den regionala nivån – och därmed för att samhällsmedborgarna ska kunna känna tillit till att vården fungerar som den ska?

    Developing ethical competence in healthcare management2016In: Journal of Workplace Learning, ISSN 1366-5626, E-ISSN 1758-7859, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 17-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper was to explore what kind of ethical competence healthcare managers need in handling conflicts of interest (COI). The aim is also to highlight essential learning processes to develop healthcare managers’ ethical competence.

    Design/methodology/approach: A qualitative study was performed. Semi-structured interviews with ten Swedish healthcare managers from different care providers were carried out twice and analysed through step-wise categorisation.

    Findings: Four categories of COI were revealed and two ways (passive and active) in which COI were handled. Ethical guidelines did not help the healthcare managers to handle the COI, and none of the managers made use of any sort of systematic ethical analysis. However, certain ethical competence was of great importance to identify and handle COI, consisting of contextual understanding, rational emotions, some theoretical knowledge and a suitable language. Organising work so that ethical analysis can be carried out is of great importance, and top management needs to clearly express the importance of ethical competence and allocate resources to allow adequate learning processes.

    Abstract [en]

    This introduction to the special issue aims to contextualize and critically comment on the current trajectory of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in both scholarly inquiry and business practice. It suggests that we must place it within the milieu of the ongoing economic crisis and the failure of a number of important opportunities to make business ethical (e.g.   the 2012 Rio + 20 Earth Summit). It then suggests possible future terrain for tenable CSR research (and practice), especially in the context of widespread cynicism and disbelief regarding the claims of business ethicists in industry and the academy.

    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.
