    Managing Hybrid Organizations: Governance, Professionalism and Regulation2019Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A much-needed addition to literature, this timely edited collection aims to provide clarity and understanding on how modern organizations work. The authors explore the characteristics of hybrid organizations in contemporary society, taking into account the complex societal challenges that face businesses today. Arguing that hybrid organizations are in fact not a new phenomenon, this thought-provoking collection goes beyond existing research and re-evaluates our traditional understanding of this concept. Scholars of organization, management and innovation will find this book an insightful read, as it sheds light on the fundamental aspects that shape today’s hybrid organizations.

    Decoupling in the age of market-embedded morality: responsible gambling in a hybrid organization2018In: Journal of Management and Governance, ISSN 1385-3457, E-ISSN 1572-963X, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 285-313Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper contributes to the understanding of hybrid organizations by refining the concept of decoupling as a strategic response to conflicting objectives and institutional expectations (Meyer and Rowan in Am J Soc 83:340–363, 1977). In today’s popular responsibility discourse one notes a hopeful “win–win” ideal that invites attempts, by companies in particular, to realize and balance conflicting values and to strive to fulfil both profit objectives and responsibility objectives. Although institutional theory has long acknowledged the strategic response of decoupling in organizational contexts, the potential of exploring and refining how this concept may be used to analyse strategic responses in the contemporary era of market-embedded morality has yet to be explored (Shamir in Econ Soc 37:1–19, 2008). There are good reasons to do so as the present-day discourse on the relation between the economy and morality offers a new set of options and challenges for legitimately responding to institutional demands. This paper draws on an explanatory, rich ethnographic and longitudinal case study of a Swedish fully state-owned company operating in the post 1990s gambling market. We suggest that contemporary hybrid organizations positioned at the crossroads of bureaucratic and market schemes of organizing, may find themselves in a particularly tight spot and seek legitimacy by decoupling—not only by adopting certain legitimizing structures, but also and increasingly with reference to market-embedded morality, a commoditizing of responsibility in their contested market setting. Based on the case findings, we suggest a distinction between organization-based decoupling and market-based decoupling and propose that market-based decoupling may be attractive to hybrid organizations owing to it being less sensitive to scrutiny and accountability claims. But at the same time, our findings indicate that market-based decoupling poses a risk to hybrid organizations, as it does not offer the same degree of legitimacy with key stakeholders/the general public as organization-based decoupling does.

    Profit-Making for Mutual Benefit: The Case of Folksam 1945–20152017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The contribution of this paper centers on organizational conditions and mechanisms for long-term justification and survival of constitutional hybrids—organizations that not only integrate various institutional logics, but also integrate structural elements, ideal-typical of different types of organizations and societal spheres. Responding to calls for studies that relate macro-, meso-and micro-level analyses, we draw on Boltanski and Thévenot’s theory of justification and a 70-year mixed-method case study of the mutually owned Swedish insurance firm, Folksam. We describe how this mutually owned enterprise went from justifying its profitmaking during the social-democratic regime to justifying its principle of mutual benefit in the decades following amarket turn in the 1980s. Our multi-level, longitudinal analysis suggests that constitutional hybrids like Folksam may survive and avoid isomorphism by making flexible use of their two-sided “Janus face”of civic and market logics of justification.

    Shaping the Consumer: A Century of Consumer Guidance2018In: Organizing and Reorganizing Markets / [ed] Nils Brunsson, Mats Jutterström, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although market organization is typically directed at organizations, it is common to legitimize it with reference to individuals. Because clever and active consumers constitute an often-assumed precondition for well functioning markets, there is much ado about maintaining this ideal. Thus reorganization aimed at increased competition and a greater supply of goods is encouraged, because the consumer is assumed to have free choice—to be willing and able, when faced with a range of options, to decide what to buy and from whom tobuy it. To date, the hopes of maintaining the fragile pipe dream of the clever and active consumer, so fundamental to much of market organization, has taken little advice from scholars demonstrating that real individuals lack the capacity to anticipate all possible options and evaluate all available information (Simon 1982; March and Simon 1958). As this chapter demonstrates,however, the discrepancy between these highly held ideals and humbler human capacities is contributing to a broad range of organizations engaging in efforts to shape ‘proper consumers’. Through a chronological historical account of a century of these efforts (c.1900–2015), we provide insights into the development of consumer guidance in Sweden. Beginning in 1900, pioneering attempts at shaping proper consumers targeted members of established organizations and offered basic knowledge on ways to save money and make informed choices between product categories—not to spend one’s daily wages on alcohol, for example, but to save and invest in a new harrow. In the state-centred, post-WWII period, beginning in the mid-1940s, there were increased standards and monitoring aimed at guiding consumers to choose not only between but also within product categories—how to calculate the price/quality ratio of different kinds of hosiery, for example. This era also saw the establishment of many specialized organizations aimed at consumer guidance. The contemporary global era, beginning in the 1990s, has seen a sharp increase in standards, labels, and consumer guidance. In the late 1990s, a third and somewhat unexpected type of advice went a step beyond the choice among and within product categories to provide advice among consumer guides. We offer a wide range of empirical examples of consumer guidance, organizedby such diverse market organizers as agricultural societies, savings banks, cooperatives, municipalities, government agencies, businesses, and bloggers. The content of the advice is analysed and, most important for this volume, we exemplify the range of market elements and information and technology usedby those engaged in the task of upholding the fragile construction of the active and clever consumer. Our account is based on three sets of empirical data collected primarily in 2012: (a) relevant secondary data from historical research and (b) our qualitative content analyses of historical and contemporary materials related to Swedish consumer guidance, such as stakeholder documents and information made publicly available through archives and the media. In addition, (c) three key informant interviews contributed to our general understanding of the contemporary Swedish field of consumer guidance (Alexius and Löwenberg 2012). In all, we see an overwhelming number of attempts to shape consumers during a period of more than one hundred years.

    Struggling to challenge an informal field order: Professional associations as standard-setters2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decades, the consulting industry has undergone major changes. The industry has grown rapidly, attracted many new players and the content of the service has expanded to include different types of services. In this changing field, actors such as professional associations, consultants and clients have sought to find ways of defining the boundaries and professional identities of consultants. In this paper, we explore the strategies used by professional associations to balance the demands of professionalization with the informal and elusive characteristics of the consulting field. Drawing on an extensive longitudinal field-study of seven self professional associations we describe and analyze obstacles faced and strategies applied when attempting to challenge this informal field order by way of standardization. The results indicate that the informal field order in the consulting industry is so strong that attempts of introducing more formal orders such as standards become a high-risk project for the professional associations, as it may cause them to lose legitimacy and members. As a consequence, the attempts of professionalization are adjusted to fit the norms in the informal field order rather than the other way around.

    Att organisera mycket eller lite? För en kväll eller för alltid? En organisationsteoretisk belysning av integrationsinitiativ. 2018Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien syftar till en fördjupad förståelse för integration av nyanlända genom en sociologisk och organisationsteoretisk analys av utvalda integrationsinitiativ i Flens kommun. Två dimensioner graden av organisation (teori om partiell organisation) och typen av temporalitet (kronologisk respektive kvalitativ tidsuppfattning), har varit huvudspår i analysen av tre initiativ: Språkvän, Flen Världsorkester och Fester. De empiriska redogörelser som presenteras för att illustrera våra teoretiska resonemang vilar på insikter från intervjuer, dokumentstudier samt informella samtal i samband med studiebesök och deltagande observationer i Flen under hösten 2017- hösten 2018. Alla sätt att organisera har sina fördelar och nackdelar. Att sträva efter långsiktig och höggradig organisation har sina fördelar – men också sina nackdelar. Vår främsta slutsats är att det idag verkar finnas för lite insikt och diskussion om detta och om möjligheten att medvetet och strategiskt uppmuntra till en ”portfölj” av initiativ med varierande grader av organisation och temporalitet. Rapporten berör också förutsättningar för integrationsstrateger, integrationssamordnare och andra liknande formella positioner i offentlig sektor. Särskilt intresse riktas mot dessa gräsrotsbyråkraters förutsättningar att vara de ”möjliggörande byråkrater” som civilsamhällets ”eldsjälar” lovordar.

    Förpliktigande samspel som vardagsrutin – en fallstudie av Borlänge kommun2018In: Styra och leda med tillit: forskning och praktik: forskningsantologi från tillitsdelegationen / [ed] Louise Bringselius, Stockholm: Norstedts Juridik AB, 2018, p. 167-195Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Förändringsarbetet mot mer tillitsfulla relationer i den kommunala förvaltningen i Borlänge initierades 2008 och pågår fortfarande aktivt ett decennium senare. Studien belyser centrala förutsättningar för att bygga och underhålla tillitsfulla relationer inom den kommunala förvaltningen. Teoretiska utgångspunkter är dels teori om medarbetarskap och ömsesidigt ansvar genom ”förpliktigande samspel”, dels teori om förändringsarbete som vardagsrutin. Metodologiskt har dokumentstudier, deltagande observationer, intervjuer och fokusgruppsintervjuer genomförts. En fördjupning har gjorts till upplevelser hos personalen på Individ- och familjeomsorgen (IFO) inom socialtjänsten. En central slutsats är att tillitsfulla relationer tar tid, både att utveckla och att underhålla. Ambitionen att minska misstro och öka tillit kräver både uthållighet i en kultur- och organisationsförändring över tid och en mellanmänsklig tillgänglighet i vardagen. I Borlänge har ett framgångsrikt värdegrundsarbete skapat goda förutsättningar för detta.

    Market Means to Political Mission Ends: Scrutinizing the Social Meaning of Moneyin the Swedish Federation for Sexual Education (RFSU)2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the nonprofit debate, there is an assumption that market means lead to market ends, oftentimes with grim consequences for nonprofit organizations. By drawing on a theoretical framework related to the social meaning of money in hybrid organizations, and by applying the framework to a longitudinal mixedmethod single case study ofmoneymanagement in the Swedish Federation for Sexual Education (RFSU), we argue in this paper instead that management of market means may also promote political mission ends. Empirical findings suggest that there are different social currencies at play that help explain why some money (income of a lower perceived social status) may be used by the organization simply as a means to get access to higher status money (and the legitimacy that comes with it). Hence, contrary to common assumptions of mission-drift as a consequence of market means, in this case study, business dividends and royalties commercially generated in fully owned subsidiaries have been informally and formally earmarked as lower status money and then used as means to secure higher status political mission ends.

    Kan en organisations olika intäkter användas till samma saker? Eller är det skillnad på en medlemsavgift och ett testamente? Eller ett offentligt bidrag? Ledare i organisationer verkar värdera olika intäkter på olika sätt och frågan är om en krona alltid är en krona. Forskarna Susanna Alexius och Ola Segnestam Larsson funderar på om pengar har olika värden.

    Enabling Sustainable Tranformation: Hybrid Organizations in Early Phases of Path Generation2019In: Journal of Business Ethics, ISSN 0167-4544, E-ISSN 1573-0697Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The rapidly growing research on hybrid organizations in recent years suggests that these organizations may have particular abilities to facilitate institutional change. This article contributes to our understanding of change and, in particular, sustainable transformation in society by highlighting the importance of organizational forms. Looking more closely at the role of hybrid organizations in processes of path generation, we analyze the conditions under which hybrid organizations may enable path generation. A retrospective (1988–2017) exploratory case study of the Swedish hybrid organization The Natural Step confirms how hybrids can take part in- and may facilitate the early phases of path generation: assimilation and coalescence. The conclusion drawn is that hybrids have multivocal abilities that enable them to earn trust and authority to open up “neutral” spaces for orientation and connection between actors in separated sub-paths, and that this in turn may ease tensions and trigger dialogue and exchange, also between former opponents. Yet, as also seen in the case, this enabling position of the hybrid may be both fragile and temporary.

    A chain of gold? A comparative study on intermediaries, trust and control in complex global aid chains2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we aim for a better understanding of the roles of intermediaries in complex and uncertain contexts. The quest for faith and certainty is constantly pressing the actors in the politicized global field of development aid. Operating on the taxpayers’ money and faced with conditions which render knowledge of previous results and prediction of future results a real challenge, what do they do? To what extent and how are results extrapolated from the use of organizational structures and management technologies? To what extent and how are results rather extrapolated from interpersonal and interorganizational trust? How are the two related? We explore these research questions empirically in a comparative study of two “aid chains” consisting of numerous organizations interlinked in the coordination and operations of aid projects (in this case aimed for capacity building in unions and universities in the global south). Intermediaries are often criticized for adding “unnecessary” transaction costs to aid projects. Based on our preliminary findings, we suggest that the understanding of the intermediary and its roles should be reconsidered. Analyzing the messiness and dynamics of how intermediaries handle trust and control opens up for a more nuanced understanding, not only of the roles played by intermediaries but also of how complex systems are coordinated.

    Marknadsstaten: om vad den svenska staten gör med marknaderna - och marknaderna med staten2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har många verksamheter förts över från stat och kommun till företag som agerar på marknader. Men den svenska staten är fortfarande djupt engagerad i marknaderna. Den har utvecklat en särskild marknadspolitik och en fjärdedel av de statliga myndigheterna har som huvuduppgift att organisera marknader. Samtidigt är marknadspolitiken abstrakt och svårfångad, och myndigheterna arbetar främst med mjuka och otydliga påverkansmetoder. Trots alla insatser finns det en utbredd tro på att marknader fungerar bäst om de lämnas ifred. Statens politik ger utrymme för andra att utöva makt. Genom djupstudier av olika marknader åskådliggör boken hur myndigheterna samarbetar med säljarna och hur säljarna får en stark position. Boken riktar sig till alla som är intresserade av den moderna statens omvandling: lärare och forskare vid universitet och högskolor, politiker, tjänstemän i stat och näringsliv och den samhällsintresserade medborgaren.

    Att styra genom organisation: Exkludering, inkludering och villkorat deltagande i Nya Karolinska Solna2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här rapporten analyserar vi hur ansvariga för Nya Karolinska Solna (NKS) behövde balansera mellan behoven av att å ena sidan driva förändringsprocessen framåt (effektivitet) och å andra sidan förankra projektet hos berörda aktörer för att värna demokratiska värden och sätta in NKS i ett större regionalt sammanhang (legitimitet). Genom att inrätta en särskild organisation – NKS-förvaltningen – för projektet åren 2008-2012 betonade projektansvariga effektiviteten i processen. För att kunna realisera visionen om det nya sjukhuset ansågs vissa aktörer, som uppfattades som motsträviga och förändringsobenägna, behöva hållas på avstånd. Vår analys visar att detta över tid ledde till en växande legitimitetsproblematik: centrala aktörer ansåg sig utestängda från arbetet och uppfattade att de saknade insyn och möjligheter att påverka, trots att de ansåg sig sitta inne med behövliga kunskaper och perspektiv. Därigenom växte också ett allt större missnöje med den särorganisatoriska lösningen. I slutändan, vid årsskiftet 2011/2012, lades NKS-förvaltningen ned och ansvaret för projektets olika delar omorganiserades till andra aktörer. Rapporten har fokus på åren 2008-2012 och baseras på dokumentanalys samt intervjuer med nyckelpersoner.

    Alfred Marshall and the Concept of Class2010In: The American journal of economics and sociology, ISSN 0002-9246, E-ISSN 1536-7150, Vol. 69, no 1, p. 151-165Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to analyze Alfred Marshall's concept of class. Marshall's concept of class is not well-studied. His idea of class is different from what Weber and Marx have proposed. In contrast to many other economists, he has a discussion of class that is developed. It is shown that Marshall sees classes as made up of people whose work offers similar chances of developing their higher faculties. An integrated idea is that different class positions are associated with different discount rates of future outcomes. Marshall's class theory combines physical and mental components.

    Markets2011 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our lives have gradually become dominated by markets. They are not only at the heart of capitalistic economies all over the world, but also central in public debates. This insightful book brings together existing knowledge on markets from sociology, economics and anthropology, and systematically investigates the different forms of markets we encounter daily in our social lives.

    Aspers starts by defining what a market actually is, analyzing its essential elements as well as its necessary preconditions and varied consequences. An important theme in the book is that a whole host of markets are embedded within one other and in social life at large, and Aspers discusses these in the context of other forms of economic coordination, such as networks and organizations. Combining theory with empirical examples, the book cuts to the core of understanding how different markets function, the role they have played in history, and how they come into being.

    This accessible and theoretically rich book will be essential reading for upper-level students seeking to make sense of markets and their complex role in social life.

    Using design for upgrading in the fashion industry2010In: Journal of Economic Geography, ISSN 1468-2702, E-ISSN 1468-2710, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 189-207Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the article is to analyze upgrading by looking at the design of fashion garments. To that end, I use the theoretical concept of contextual knowledge to understand the problems faced by firms, and their staff, that want to upgrade through design. Contextual knowledge combines a general knowledge of fashion with the lifeworld that actors use for interpretation of fashion. Lifeworld is a notion which refers to what is taken for granted. Producers and consumers in the global fashion industry live in different lifeworlds. The text discusses upgrading strategies of garment manufacturers, drawing on unique empirical material. It provides a theoretical tool for analyzing culturally primed production in a global setting.

    Trade shows and the creation of market and industry2011In: Sociological Review, ISSN 0038-0261, E-ISSN 1467-954X, Vol. 59, no 4, p. 758-778Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses the question of the constitution of markets in advanced societies.Specifically, the article studies the role of the traveling trade show in creatingthe real time computing market, which is part of the US electronics sector, duringthe mid-1990’s. Real time computing products assist the transfer, storage and processingof digital signals in real time and support many of the internet applicationswe use today.By applying ethnographic methods,we explore the general question ofhow economic actors cope with uncertainty in the phase of market-making and atthe cutting edge of technology. The paper makes two contributions to the existingliterature. First, it shows that the attempt to organize a trade show in real timecomputing was triggered by the uncertainty experienced by sellers regarding theidentity of prospective buyers and about the exact use to which they would put theemergent technology which is offered for sale. Secondly, we trace the history of anemergent market.We claim that trade shows for innovative products are importantvenues at which markets coalesce.The identification and ordering of market actors,the institutionalization of a distinct business culture and the social networks developedamong market actors and across the subsidiary markets provided the basicsocial infrastructure for what later became known as the real time computingindustry.

    Från hemvävd till invävd: Europeiseringen av svensk förvaltning och politik2006Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sveriges EU-medlemskap har radikalt förändrat villkoren för den nationella politiken. Staten är i dag djupt invävd i det europeiska. Sverige, liksom andra stater, blir mer än tidigare regelföljare i en europeisk (och global) omvärld. EU sätter i hög grad dagordningen för svensk politik samtidigt som den organiserar om i förvaltningen. Allt detta betyder inte att det nationella handlingsutrymmet har försvunnit, men svenska politiker får i högre grad än tidigare ta ansvar för sådant som de har haft små möjligheter att påverka.

    Villkoren för styrning och organisering förändras. Det blir svårare att hålla ihop staten och det blir svårare att styra dagordningen. Ansvariga ministrar och myndigheter har dock länge tonat ner EU-medlemskapets betydelse och menat att hävdvunna sätt att styra och reglera kan bestå. Men så är det inte. Utifrån en rad empiriska studier hävdas i den här boken att det behövs ett nytänkande och en vitaliserad diskussion om hur den svenska staten påverkas av EU-medlemskapet, vilket handlingsutrymme våra folkvalda politiker har, och hur den i EU (och i världen) invävda staten kan organiseras och styras. I boken lämnas ett bidrag till en sådan diskussion.
