    The Professionalization of Ethics in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from Servant of Science to Ethical Master?2013In: Sustainable Development, ISSN 0968-0802, E-ISSN 1099-1719, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 122-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Solutions to climate change have been academically criticized for their continued economic growth, managerialism and lack of real politics. In comparison, the IPCC's socio-economic assessments of climate change have accentuated the ethical implications of their own policy recommendations. Our analysis of ten IPCC reports (19902012) shows a turn from a claimed non-political position in human-induced climate change to an outspoken ethical position in climate-induced disasters. We argue that a professionalization of climate ethics is sought through ecological reason, specifically by calls for resilience to foster adaptable subjects. This neoliberal position leans on a problematization of vulnerable subjects' resistance to social adaptation, underpinned by an aim to redirect resistance towards physical disasters to stimulate climate adaptation. Conclusively, climate ethical mastery is formed by detailed elaborations of how the vulnerable subject should not only subsume to ecological reason, but also ethically embrace physical threats and dangers as if productive of life supportive qualities.

    Kvinnors företagande i landsbygdskommuner med fokus på Småland och Öland: En kvantitativ kartläggning inom ramen för forskningsprojektet ”Kvinnors företagande för en levande landsbygd”2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En livskraftig landsbygd med tillgång till arbetskraft, arbetstillfällen och välfärdsservice är en aktuell samhällsfråga. Företagandets omfattning på landsbygden är en aspekt som kan ha betydelse för landsbygdskommunernas sårbarhet. Syftet med rapporten är att utveckla kunskap om kvinnors entreprenörskap på landsbygden, som kan ligga till grund för att stimulera landsbygdsutveckling, jämställdhet och vidare forskning, exempelvis genom kvalitativa forskningsmetoder. Med hjälp av en databasstudie beskrivs och analyseras omfattningen och karaktären av kvinnors företagande på landsbygden. Till viss del studeras också likheter och skillnader i företagandet mellan kvinnor födda i Sverige och kvinnor födda utomlands, samt mellan kvinnor och män. Företagandet är mer omfattande bland de sysselsatta kvinnorna på landsbygden än bland de sysselsatta kvinnorna i tätorterna. Skillnaderna i omfattningen av kvinnors företagande är små mellan olika typer av landsbygdskommuner – de som är avlägset belägna, mycket avlägset belägna eller belägna nära en större stad. Resultaten indikerar snarare att det är kommunernas företagskaraktär eller tradition av företagande som avgör andelen företagare per sysselsatta. Kartläggningen pekar mot att arbetslöshet kan vara ett incitament för företagande – något starkare för de utlandsfödda kvinnorna än för kvinnorna födda i Sverige. Skogsförvaltning och blandat jordbruk är bland de vanligaste näringsgrenarna för både kvinnor och män på landsbygden. I övrigt är dock företagandet mycket könssegregerat med avseende på bransch. De tio vanligaste näringsgrenarna för kvinnor och män skiljer sig markant åt. Kvinnors företag är mest representerade i Hår- och kroppsvård, Restaurangverksamhet, Redovisning och bok-föring, Konsultverksamhet avseende företags organisation, Fysioterapeutisk verksamhet samt Litterärt och konstnärligt skapande. Mäns vanligaste näringsgrenar är mer relaterade till lands-bygdens kontext av mark- och naturresurser. Kvinnors företag är små, 76 procent är soloföretag och lönsamheten varierar stort. De näringsgrenar där kvinnors företag redovisar högst lön-samhet är i de numerärt mansdominerade näringsgrenarna inom tillverkningsindustrin. Resultaten indikerar därmed könssegregering och hierarki med avseende på arbets- och resursfördelning. Kvinnor på landsbygden är mer benägna att vara företagare än anställda om de är gifta, har hemmavarande barn eller en utbildningsnivå lägre än den eftergymnasiala. Det kan tolkas som att företagandet är en lösning för att kombinera arbetsliv med ansvar för hem och barn. De företagande kvinnornas disponibla inkomster är i genomsnitt lägre än för kvinnor med anställning, för män som är företagare och för män med anställning. Att vara gift innebär för kvinnor en lägre disponibel inkomst, men för män en högre disponibel inkomst jämfört med att att inte vara gift. Resultaten visar dock att det inte är de individrelaterade faktorerna som mest bidrar till skillnader i disponibel inkomst, utan, näringsgren och antalet sysselsatta. Manligt könskodade näringsgrenar och stora företag ger högre inkomst. Den övergripande slutsatsen är att företagandet på landsbygden är traditionellt könssegregerat och hierarkiserat, i fråga om resursfördelning.

    Motiv till företagsförvärv: En kvalitativ innehållsanalys av motiv angivna i erbjudandehandlingar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the motives for mergers and acquisitions. Results of past studies have shown that the effects of mergers and acquisitions are destructive from a shareholder's point of view. Despite of this fact companies' management continue to perform mergers and acquisitions. As a consequence, this paradox has led scholars to get interested in exploring the companies' management's motives for performing mergers and acquisitions. The empirical material explored by the scholars has often consisted of interviews with different persons with deep insight regarding mergers and acquisitions. However, the examination of motives in this thesis focuses on utilising so called offer documents as an empirical foundation because they offer a rich material and their content relates to the thesis' subject. According to Swedish law an offer document has to be established when for example a company makes a public offer to purchase the shares in a company listed in Sweden and the offer document has to contain a section regarding the offer's motives. By examining the motives section in the offer documents using a qualitative content analysis method several different categories of motives has been identified and these categories has then been compared to the general motives for mergers and acquisitions formulated in past research and by various theorists. The result of the examination shows that there are often several motives expressed in the offer documents regarding why the merger and acquisition is performed and that delisting motives and legal motives are relatively common motives stated in the offer documents. However, these two categories of motives have not gotten any particular attention in past research or by various theorists active within the field of mergers and acquisitions. The examination also shows that personal and managerial motives as well as more controversial motives, such as tax motives, formulated in past research and by various theorists are not found in the offer documents.

    Innovation händer inte bara.: - Hur ledningen kan bidra till utvecklingen av innovativa organisationer2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to make a survey of how the management of an enterprise works in an innovative way to identify possibilities in the communication towards employees. Furthermore, the authors analyze the essential part that management can play in the development of innovative organizations. The essay is divided according to a study model which has been defined by the authors into 5 areas: Communication around innovation, Approaches to innovation, Mechanisms which determine innovation, Ways of dealing with mistakes, and Ways of dealing with rewards. 4 fast-growing Swedish companies have been studied on the basis of the 5 areas mentioned through semi-structured interviews with the CEO of the company. Two companies are medium sized and two are a bit smaller. What all the 4 companies have in common is the fact that they have been rewarded as a Gazelle company, a fast-growing company or that their CEO have been praised for their creativity as entrepreneurs. Their interviews reveal the possibilities of the management of a company to communicate with its employees to foster innovation. One important conclusion is the need for a mechanism which can collect the ideas of its employees and that working climate should be such that it tolerates a certain degree of failure, that every idea proposed is treated with respect, and that the management has the policy of rewarding innovation as part of the employees work.

    En chattbot i kostym: Vad gör ChatGPT med HR-arbetares professionella identitet?2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the launch of ChatGPT in November 2022, the usage of the service has skyrocketed. This artificially intelligent chatbot has made its way into workplaces around the world, thus beginning to transform the work practices of many professional groups. HR is a professional group that has been shaped by the technological advancements of the past 60 years. This study examines how HR professionals utilize ChatGPT in their work and how they perceive their professional identity in relation to the chatbot. Through a qualitative investigation involving 14 semi-structured interviews, we find that HR professionals use ChatGPT as a co-worker in various ways. The use of ChatGPT unburden administrative workload and enables more interactive and strategic work, confirming and enhancing the interpersonal, creative and innovative perception of the HR-related professional identity.

    Exploring the Organization-User Relationship in Private-Collective Knowledge Communities2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, organizations have begun hosting open source softwarecommunities which creates the opportunity to leverage a communityof users to co-create value. However, little research has explored thedynamic that is created when individuals outside the organization’sformal boundaries play a larger role in its value creation process. Infact, these individuals are able to exercise significant power and latitudein terms of how and to what degree they engage in and contributeto the community while the organization has no direct authority overthem. Therefore, this study attempts to identify the factors that affectthe dynamic that develops between the users and the organization.Preliminary results are presented as well as a brief overview of theresearch currently being conducted to extend these findings.

    Stepping Into the Internet: Leveraging Virtual Worlds Affordances for Co-Creation2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Both theory and practice recommend collaborating with users to access and generate innovation-relevant knowledge. Especially recent social software applications and even more virtual worlds have created unprecedented opportunities for firms to engage in advanced experiences with users and user communities for knowledge co-creation. The aim of this research is to shed light on what enables the co-creation of innovation-relevant knowledge in virtual worlds. To tackle this research task we collaborated with a Swedish start-up, designing co-creation workshops. Presenting the outcome of the co-creation workshops, we develop a set of propositions that relate specific aspects of virtual worlds to the different modes of innovation-relevant knowledge creation during co-creation. We extend prior research on knowledge creation into the virtual world context and provide insights about effectively leverage virtual worlds for innovation-related knowledge co-creation.

    More passion than the job requires?: Monstrously transgressive leadership in the promotion of health at work2013In: Leadership, ISSN 1742-7150, E-ISSN 1742-7169, Vol. 9, no 3 (SI), p. 396-415Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite Weber’s early emphasis on passionate emotions in charismatic leadership and a recent but broader interest in the embodied and emotional aspects of leadership, we still know relatively little about how passions are embodied in leadership. We also know little about how such passions may transgress formally and socially defined limits of leadership in organizations. Through a case of workplace health promotion this paper therefore investigates how people in organizational leadership roles passionately – and corporeally – transgress the limits of these roles whilst pursuing organizational change. Going beyond extant research, the paper argues that the leaders’ pursuit of health was driven by their own embodied passions as well as by organizational rationales, but that their passions were expressed in largely non-charismatic ways that de-motivated rather than motivated employees.

    Kunskap är mer dialogbaserat än monologbaserat: En studie om Knowledge Sharing i små och medelstora företag2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Research has concluded that Knowledge Sharing is essential for a company's future survival and that small and medium-sized enterprises have not taken the necessary steps to promote greater Knowledge Sharing between employees. Therefore the study highlighted Knowledge Sharing in small and medium-sized, project-based businesses. The aim of the study was to increase the understanding and contribute knowledge regarding how employees in small and medium-sized businesses are working with and can stimulate Knowledge Sharing. The research approach was a qualitative design with semi-structured interviews where the starting-point was to study employees' preferences and experiences of Knowledge Sharing.

    The study showed that the practical sharing of knowledge within small and medium enterprises was through informal methods such as meetings and personal communications. The explicit knowledge was presented to them by the personalization and dialogue, rather than by monologue. It was considered to generate deeper knowledge by impersonation than through codification. Individuals want to share expertise naturally, and the best organizational policies may be to create opportunities for people to talk and share knowledge through dialogues. Bonus systems were implemented to motivate employees to share knowledge in some of the surveyed companies. Furthermore, employees were motivated to share knowledge by other motivations than purely monetary incentives. Knowledge Sharing behavior was motivated by the desire to help others and contribute to the organization. Other strong motives to Knowledge Sharing was to share knowledge in order to, in turn, get knowledge returned and that it was fun.

    How are strategic CSR and brand reputation perceived to affect competitive advantage?: A case study2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social responsibility has a long history and it is evolved from the genuine altruism of human beings. On the other hand, corporate social responsibility finds its roots from organizations. The interactions of an organization and the public enable CSR to emerge and affect both organizations and human beings.The term CSR is evaluated differently in different contexts with different approaches by the scholars.One type of CSR, strategic CSR, aims for evaluating CSR from a strategic point of view. As strategic CSR is a long term investment, it provides a competitive advantage over competitors once a company invests in CSR and communicates CSR properly. The interest of consumers in products is the main drive for the introduction of the brand concept. Brand becomes important due to the fact that organization wants the products and services to be recognizable by the public. This recognition is followed by formation of brand reputation which requires long term investments to be established.The purpose of this study is to analyze how strategic CSR and brand reputation are perceived to affect competitive advantage in a specific company. This study traces the perceptions of CSR, the brand reputation and the competitive advantage concepts in this company, with particular focus on how they are perceived by the employees in the organization.In this case study, Exploratory Sequential Mixed Methods Design is used to have different insights from qualitative and quantitative analyses. In this design, first qualitative analysis has been conducted and it is followed by the quantitative analysis.Findings of this study reveal that in the specific company, the perceptions of management and nonmanagement employees differ for the given concepts. The non-management employees think that CSR enables competitive advantage whereas management favors brand reputation more and thinks that it is crucial for competitive advantage of the specific company. Although management thinks that CSR is an important concept that the organization might benefit from, there is no plan to evaluate CSR strategically in the specific company.A crucial attribute of a company is to be dynamic and to adapt rapidly to the industry and market changes. This is followed by generation of the brand and improvement of the brand to provide reputation. From this perspective, it is a necessity that both CSR and brand reputation should be evaluated strategically in ACME AB and if neglected, the competitive advantage of a company cannot be realized.

    Perspectives on effective digital content management in organizations2019In: Knowledge and Process Management, ISSN 1092-4604, E-ISSN 1099-1441, Vol. 26, no 3, p. 202-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern corporations face enormous digital transformation challenges in order to incorporate digital content into its corporate memory. At the same time over the last decade and a half, there is growing evidence of the advent of different types of mechanisms to manage digital organizational content. The management of digital content is particularly important to support knowledge worker practices to access, share and reuse content in knowledge intensive organizations. Despite the availability of technological solutions in the marketplace to integrate content, managers are often overwhelmed by the choices they need to make to effectively manage digital content in their organizations. Extant literature indicates that in an increasingly digitized world, there is no clear understanding of the digital content considerations for informed decision-making in organizations. Based on our research experiences in knowledge management, particularly knowledge codification in digital infrastructures we provide certain perspectives on the four considerations for effective management of digital content in large organizations. We present four short exhibits to illustrate these four core considerations which we label as the ‘4Cs’ (i.e. content contribution, categorization, control and centralization) for effective digital content management in large organizations.

    The magic of ethical brands: interpassivity and the thievish joy of delegated consumption2014In: Ephemera : Theory and Politics in Organization, ISSN 2052-1499, E-ISSN 1473-2866, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 57-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past 20 years, ethical brands have risen to prominence. The prevailing discourse implies that this trend has emerged as a result of consumers wanting to make a difference through their consumption. We argue that the popularity of ethical brands is due, at least in part, to their universal appeal, which can be understood by analyzing ethical brand consumption from a perspective beyond marketing and management logic, focusing on hedonistic motivation. Introducing Robert Pfaller’s work on illusions without owners and in particular using the concept of interpassivity, we argue that consumers can derive pleasure in the form of thievish joy (diebische Freude) from consuming ethical brands without believing that their purchase will result in the purported outcomes. We aim to extend the typology of consumer ideologies, as they pertain to ethical consumption, through Pfaller’s conceptualization and offer yet another explanation for consumer motivation beyond peer pressure or impression management. Following Pfaller’s description of interpassive delegation as the magic of the (self-described) civilized man, we call the potential for ethical brands to enable an enjoyment surplus through thievish joy the magic of ethical brands. The paper’s contribution is twofold: first, by linking Pfaller’s conceptualizations to ethical brand consumption we hope to offer a unique and productive way to reflect on brand consumption and second, this paper introduces Pfaller’s original work to the scholarly discourse on consumption and organization studies.

    On vulnerability in critical entrepreneurship education2018In: Revitalizing entrepreneurship education: Adopting a critical approach in the classroom. / [ed] Karin Berglund; Karen Verduijn, New York: Routledge, 2018, p. 211-227Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Every time we go in to teach we take a deep breath before entering the classroom and remind ourselves that one or two students in there are likely to know more about the subject than we do. This could be because of their previous experiences and knowledge, or because their gaze from the outside is sharper than ours. At times this exposure of our vulnerability is intimidating for us – we want to be “good”, knowledgeable teachers who make a real contribution. At other times we see outstanding students as a resource and a source of inspiration. Which interpretation comes more naturally depends, we think, on how secure we feel on the topic, but also on how the students function as a group – whether they are defensive and competitive, or curious and willing to share their learnings. In this chapter we will report on a course in which the latter state emerged, and we will suggest that it is precisely because of the presence of those outstanding students that we, as teachers, have the opportunity to learn and develop our courses. We will also suggest that a similar logic of seeing the encounter with others as an opportunity for development can, and should, be incorporated into the teaching of entrepreneurship – not least because entrepreneurship is often circumscribed as creative, curious and open-minded, as an activity to explore new paths or disclose “new worlds” (Spinosa et al., 1999).

    Impact of passive leadership on intrapreneurial behavior: A case study from the employee perspective2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Utilizing individuals that are creative, risk taking and innovative could be the key to organizational success in our rapidly changing world. It is argued by many that intrapreneurs are the source of financial growth and profitability, an important source for organizations to stay competitive in a dynamically evolving business landscape. Despite that, the field of intrapreneurship is an overall under researched area where the point of view from the intrapreneurs has been neglected, as well as how leadership affects these individuals. To investigate more on the phenomena of intrapreneurship would contribute both to extent research, as well as give practical advice to management leading intrapreneurs. Therefore, this thesis intends to further extend the knowledge about how a destructive leadership could impact intrapreneurial behavior with the research question: How does passive leadership impact intrapreneurial behavior? In order to contribute with a discussion regarding this, a qualitative case study has been conducted where the employee perspective has been central. The objective of study is intrapreneurs from different organizations and positions. The data collected have been analyzed with the guidance of a theoretical ground and then been discussed in relation to the nature of passive leaders. The result from the study implies that intrapreneurial behavior is negatively impacted by passive leadership but it was also evident that the problem is complex and recommendations on further research have been presented. In conclusion, this research has found interesting insights regarding the relation between passive leadership and intrapreneurial behavior and has contributed to overlooked areas in the field of intrapreneurship as well as leadership.

    Bullying and the neoliberal university: A co-authored autoethnography2020In: Management Learning, ISSN 1350-5076, E-ISSN 1461-7307, Vol. 51, no 4, p. 398-413Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to deepen the understanding of academic bullying as a consequence of neoliberal reforms in a university. Academics in contemporary universities have been put under pressure by the dominance of neoliberal processes, such as profit maximization, aggressive competitiveness, individualism or self-interest, generating undignifying social behaviours, including bullying practices. The presented story takes us – a junior academic and his conceptual encounterer – through our remembered experiences and field notes around a set of workday events in one European university reformed through managerial solutions as the object of the study. To do that, we employ co-authored analytic autoethnography to learn how neoliberal solutions reinforce paternalistic relationships as significant in career development, how such solutions enable the bullying of young academics and how neoliberalism in academia prevents young academics from contesting bullying. We are particularly interested in the bystander phenomenon: a person who shies away from taking action against bullying and thus strengthens bullying practices.
