    Managing paradoxes in governance: tensions in the emergence of a new board2015Inngår i: Contingency, behavioural and evolutionary perspectives on public and nonprofit governance / [ed] Luca Gnan, Alessandro Hinna, Fabio Monteduro, Bingley: Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2015, s. 1-30Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Taking a micro-perspective of governance that includes pro- blem-solving and stakeholder involvement capabilities as part of the stra- tegic steering role, we wish to contribute to the understanding of the human side of governance. Thus we have studied the relationships between the board and its management and stakeholders, and in so doing we recognize internal and external actors as well as the board itself, and how they all contribute to the implementation of the governance function.

    Methodology/approach: Based on an interpretative approach that focuses on change over time, we performed a qualitative empirical study of the governance of Robotdalen, a small non-profit public organization in Sweden that is a joint public and private collaboration. This chapter forms part of a longitudinal study that has been carried out since 2009. It is based primarily on interviews with board members, management and other stakeholders, and complemented by document studies and observations.

    Findings: Governance practice entails multiple and multilevel tasks, and the tensions between representativeness/professional boards, confor- mance/performance, and controlling/partnering up with management, are prevalent in both small non-profit and public organizations. According to our results the apparent choice between the extremes of each tension is, however, not a choice at all but rather a balancing act. In trying to balance tensions through collaboration between managers, board, financiers, and the hosting university, new governance structures and practices emerge at the organizational level.

    Originality/value: By following the process of the emergence of a new board, we illustrate how various actors work together to co-produce gov- ernance functions in practice. In the past little or no effort has been made to take into account contextual factors such as organizational size an aspect that may influence or shape board characteristics and work methodology. We therefore attempt to do so in our chapter, by studying the emergence of a new board in a small public organization, what possible paradoxes and tensions are involved in such work, and how such tensions are managed.

    Co-Production of Governance Practices - A collaboration between a board, its management and stakeholders2017Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we take an interest in how a board, its management and stakeholders co-produce different governing practices when strategizing. A research area that has growing, but is not yet that well developed, and where the human side of board work seems to be under privileged. We intend to contribute with a longitudinal case study by investigating how governance practices are co-produced and developed over time. We have studied the work of a management team in a small non-profit organization in Sweden for ten years and its relations to the board and stakeholders. A broad conceptualization of public governance is applied, which opens up for new subjects to be researched, e.g. concerning the relationships between the different parts of the governance system. By doing this we show how funding and financiers' regimes can influence governance practices at the organizational level, and how internal actors such as managers also carry out governance practices. Moreover, our results show that in a context of public organizations it is a paramount to understand stake management and to have the ability to balance different aspects of accountability and performance. This is true especially if the organization is acting in a complex setting including both private and public actors that poses monitoring and control challenges of different stakes and interests.

    Entrepreneurship a Managerial Tool for Renewal – The Case of the Swedish Public Employment Service2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to study how strategic and entrepreneurial processes develop in a public-sector organization. We do this through the theoretical lens of Strategic Entrepreneurship (SE). Previous literature on SE practices have identified a number of organizational aspects  such as culture, structure, and leadership  that are important to manage in order to benefit from new opportunities and strategic actions. So far, there is little knowledge about SE practices in the public sector and its possible consequences. There are also few qualitative studies within SE. When more qualitative features of SE are attained, it can provide a better understanding of the phenomenon of entrepreneurship in established organizations and SE. In line with this, our study is based on a longitudinal and qualitative process approach focusing on the work of the Swedish Public Employment Services (SPES) efforts to realize its new strategy through entrepreneurial processes. The results showed that there are several tensions between previous culture, leadership and structure in relation to entrepreneurial processes. We have contributed to previous literature by focusing on the organizational aspects of these tensions and the SE practices of balancing strategic management and entrepreneurship. Our results also show how entrepreneurial processes become the solution to strategic management problems in the public sector and a managerial tool for renewal.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we study how entrepreneurial and strategic processes develop in a public-sector organisation through a theoretical lens of Strategic Entrepreneurship (SE). Previous literature on SE practices identified a number of organisational aspects—such as organisational culture, structure, and entrepreneurial leadership—that are important to manage in order to benefit from new opportunities and strategic actions. So far, there is little knowledge about SE practices in the public sector and their possible consequences. There are also few qualitative studies in the field of SE, though arguments have been made for it. Our study is based on a longitudinal and qualitative process approach focusing on the work of the Swedish Public Employment Service’s (SPES) efforts to realise its new strategy through entrepreneurial and strategic processes. The results showed that there are several organisational tensions in relation to the processes of entrepreneurship. We have empirically contributed to previous literature by studying the SE practices of simultaneously balancing the processes of entrepreneurship and strategy. We have also contributed to a more nuanced discussion of the complexity of implementing SE practices and their relationship to organisational culture, structure and entrepreneurial leadership.

    Measuring to understand intangible performance drivers2001Inngår i: The European Accounting Review, ISSN 0963-8180, E-ISSN 1468-4497, Vol. 10, nr 3, s. 407-437Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The present qualitative study explores what eleven Swedish organizations have systematically worked at to increase the understanding of the importance of intangibles as performance drivers. The present analysis is accomplished using a combination of evolutionary theory, knowledge-based theory and organizational learning. The results indicate that assets in an accounting sense seem to be of less interest than perceptions of activities that enable future performance. These “enablers” are often customer and employee perceptions of individual, organizational and relational competence. The way for the firms to ascertain a continuous organizational learning process with respect to the value creation chain is to measure intangibles as well as to maintain organizational routines that ensure the transformation of measurement results into action.

    Breaking Taboos –implementing Intellectual Asset-based Management Guidelines2009Inngår i: Journal of Intellectual Capital, ISSN 1469-1930, E-ISSN 1758-7468, Vol. 10, nr 4, s. 520-538Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to highlight how, and why, some small and medium-sized high-tech Japanese firms apply and assess the “intellectual asset-based management” (IAbM) guidelines issued by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in October 2005.Design/methodology/approach – This is an interpretive case study linking semi-structured interview and document data from four Japanese firms that have issued IAbM reports containing ideas about the processes of creating knowledge and routines in their organizations.Findings – The findings indicate that the firms studied essentially follow the guidelines, although pinpointing how this affects their internal management is difficult. The IAbM report is primarily used for external communication, with the capital market and with existing and potential customers.Practical implications – The practical implications found in this paper relate mainly to the four challenges found already in research by Johanson, i.e. uniqueness versus comparability, confidentiality versus accountability, market communication and management control.Originality/value – The unique features of this paper are found mainly in the empirical parts, where the guidelines and the sample of small and medium-sized Japanese firms form an interesting and seldom used empirical point of departure. The findings concerning actual use and interpretation of a guideline could also, of course, be regarded as a distinctive aspect of this paper.

    Auditor Face‐Work at the Annual General Meeting2018Inngår i: Contemporary Accounting Research, ISSN 0823-9150, E-ISSN 1911-3846, Vol. 35, nr 1, s. 365-393Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how auditors prepare for the annual general meeting (AGM) and how they report their work to the shareholders there. Prior literature has suggested—but not explicitly studied—that the endpoint of an audit is a state of comfort between the auditor and the management and audit committee members, but also is potentially fragile. The fragility can arise from a failure to relay trust to the investor community, which may initiate or increase doubts about the financial report and/or the auditor's independence. We build the case that an AGM is an event to study how the endpoint of an audit engagement is both a state of collective comfort and a fragile state. The analysis is based on ten interviews and three workshops with auditors as well as observations at 67 AGMs. To analyze the field material, the paper draws on Goffman's idea of face‐work, which requires backstage preparations, notably with management, and a front stage performance as an independent auditor to relay trust to the shareholders. The paper details how auditors at the AGM perform as independent verifiers of the management's financial report. Although we recorded that auditors were typically successful in preventing the backstage activities from becoming visible to the shareholders, we found incidents that challenged both the auditors' and the managements' face. In analyzing these incidents, we found that auditors reinforced their image as independent to regain both their own face and the management's face. The management did not take a similar collective responsibility for the auditor's face, which implies that auditors were asymmetrically committed to the management. As a take‐away, the paper discusses how governance mechanisms backstage are linked and can surface front stage at the AGM.

    Performance Measurement and Management Systems: A Perspective from Complexity Theory2018Inngår i: International journal of management reviews (Print), ISSN 1460-8545, E-ISSN 1468-2370, Vol. 20, nr 3, s. 731-754Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Complexity negatively impacts the process of continually improving performance management systems (PMSs). The extant PMS literature considers complexity to be a result of the external environment rather than a user response to that environment. However, this paper argues that organizations generally face internal complexity when adopting PMSs. Introducing PMSs into an organization can have varied effects in those organizations based on the complexity of an organization's associated members and its interactions. This study aims to understand the emergence of complexities while implementing and using PMSs in organizations. From the complexity theory perspective, four system properties (ontological, teleological, genetic and functional) are used to understand complexity in PMSs. The paper builds on a systematic literature review consisting of 76 papers and analyses them in the light of exploring sources of complexity when implementing and using PMSs. From the outset, complexity is understood to be a result of the conflict between existing organizational practices and mechanisms and the organizational controls associated with PMSs. The key findings abstracted six sources of complexity in this study: role, task and procedural types of complexity associated with the social dimension, and methodological, analytical and technological types of complexity associated with the technical dimension. The study findings contribute to the current discussion regarding why PMSs typically lag and are not responsive and resilient in emerging contexts. While understanding and exploring all organizational controls that moderate a PMS is useful, organizations should construct the necessary capabilities, depending on their context and adapt to the changes associated with PMSs.

    Once Again to the Issue of the IT Productivity Paradox: Predictors and its State at the Present Time2012Inngår i: Collection of Scientific Papers XXII International Scientific Conference "New Trends in Economics and Management" / [ed] Krivorotov V.V., Maiburov I.A., Frolova W.D., Ekaterinburg, 2012, s. 5-9Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    With the emergence and development of IT, much of the research community and society as a whole presumed that investment in IT increases productivity, and that the relationship between them is quite measurable. The issue of how IT influences on productivity and economic growth has been hotly discussed among researchers on both macro and micro levels. This paper considers the state of the IT productivity paradox at the present time from the perspective of micro level to define a gap in the given domain and identifies directions for further research.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite the fact that over the past decades the IT productivity paradox became a significant theme in management research, there are still many open questions in the scientific literature of the 2000s regarding this phenomenon. This article makes a contribution to the theoretical background of the IT productivity paradox. The purpose of this paper is to consider a conceptual framework of IT and IT business value, discuss predictors of the IT productivity paradox, synthesize and classify recent research on IT investment and its influence on firm performance. Priority is given to literature based on firm-level analysis and published during the last decade. The results of this paper indicate that the productivity paradox of IT still plays an important role in current research. But whereas in the past business and research communities considered its influence on firm performance directly, recent research shows that before assessing the benefits from IT investment, it is necessary to understand what occurs in the “black box” of operations processes and how actual IT usage makes impact on one of the major business success indicators – productivity.

    COMPLEMENTARITIES OF EFFECTIVE INDIVIDUAL IT USE: PRELIMINARY RESULTS2016Inngår i: Proceedings of the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2016), Association for Information Systems, 2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents preliminary results from an ongoing empirical study that seeks to understand the relationship between IT-complementary factors and the individual productivity of information workers. Although there is substantial evidence of positive IT complementarity effects on productivity at macro-, meso-, and micro-levels of the economy, we still lack knowledge on the configuration of these factors at the individual level. To investigate this gap, we have designed a new research model of an information worker’s individual productivity when an IT system is used jointly and synchronously with both individual and organizational factors. The model is tested in a longitudinal field study of sales operations of an international pharmaceutical company with a multi sub-case set-up. While we continue to collect data, preliminary findings from difference-in-difference analysis are presented here and demonstrate that the introduction of a “full” set of IT complementarities has had a positive and significant effect on the number of sales calls performed.

    Software Programmer Productivity: A Complementary-Based Research Model2017Inngår i: Proceedings of the 25th European Conference on Information Systems, Guimarães, Portugal, 2017, s. 2755-2766Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The identification of the factors that condition a software programmer’s productivity remains a key challenge for both scholars and practitioners. While a number of studies have focused on the impact of one or a few particular factors, the way these factors jointly condition programmer productivity is still unknown. This paper presents a conceptual model aimed at a comprehensive understanding of the factors that complement each other to govern the productivity of a software programmer. The model is based on complementarity theory and its systems approach and addresses an individual worker’s productivity, which accounts for cognitive, technological, and organizational characteristics. The analyzed factors are organized into a system of complementarities, offering two propositions that specify the conditions of a programmer’s productivity. The model’s key contribution lies in its unique configuration of two systems of complementarities, which have the potential to add to the literature on the productivity of software programmers. The proposed model can be employed as a guidance for the design of empirical investigations of the conditions of individual software programmers’ productivity as well as information worker productivity in general.

    Swedish Information Economy : A Preliminary Account2017Inngår i: Dilemmas 2015 Papers from the 18th Annual International Conference Dilemmas for Human Services: Organizing, Designing and Managing / [ed] Sisse Finken, Christina Mörtberg, Anita Mirijamdotter, Vaxjo, 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent developments and adoptions of digital technologies give rise to the growth of information economies, understood as an aggregate of economic activities that produce informational outputs. Several key characteristics of an information economy differ to the conventional economic wisdom derived from the industrial age, which may impose governmental policy implications and therefore constitutes a key question: how to govern the newly emerged information economy with the thinking of the industrial age economy. Resolving this problem requires, among others, comprehensive understanding of information economies. To that end, Sweden is among the most advanced adopters of digital technologies and represents therefore a suitable empirical base for the investigation of an information economy. This paper offers preliminary results from a first ever account of the Swedish information economy in terms of its value created, jobs and wages; this account shows that the Swedish economy is dominated by its information economy, which requires a careful attention of policy makers.

    The Swedish Information Economy: Current Evidence and Key Government Policy Implications2017Inngår i: Proceedings of the 8th International on Society and Information Technologies: ICSIT 2017 / [ed] Nagib Callaos, Belkis Sánchez, Michael Savoie, Friedrich Welsch, José Vicente Carrasquero, International Institute of Informatics and Systemics, 2017, s. 23-28Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that most of the largest economies in the world are becoming information economies (understood as an aggregate of economic activities that produce information outputs) in terms of value added (GNP) and jobs. Sweden is among the most advanced adopters of ICT and represents therefore a suitable empirical base for the investigation of an information economy. The data reveal that the largest part of the Swedish economy in terms of GNP value added is constituted by information services. This study presents some surprising economic structures never before uncovered, which are discussed here and then contextualized in terms of implications for public policy making.

    En frivillig revision: -En studie om varför små aktiebolagsägare väljer att använda revisionen trots att de har möjlighet att avskaffa den.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    On the 1st of November 2010 more than 70% of small companies on the stock market, in Sweden, have chosen to abolish the audit system; however despite this elimination some companies advocated the importance of using the audit system. The aim of the paper is to highlight and explain the underlying reasons to that the owners of small limited company chooses to retain the audit. A qualitative method was adopted which uses semi-structured interviews, a total of 13 interviews were conducted, two of them were face to face and eleven were phone interviews. The empirical results showed that there are a number of reasons behind the small companies choice of audit, serving its own cause, seriousness of the audit system, information asymmetry, the Swedish Tax Agency, the credibility of the various stakeholders, the need of advice, lack of time, lack of knowledge in economics, educational level concerning finance and sales, to name a few.

    Framing numbers "at a distance": Intangible performance reporting in a theater2011Inngår i: Journal of Human Resource Costing and Accounting, ISSN 1401-338X, E-ISSN 1758-745X, Vol. 15, nr 4, s. 260-278Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore how the framing of numbers may be related to the distance between the information provider and information users.

    Design/methodology/approach – The design of the paper is a case study, in an organizational situation where there are perceived problems in producing stable inscriptions for reporting to users at a distance. The study focuses on the top management level in a small-sized publicly-funded theater. The qualitative research design incorporates interviews, observations and document analysis.

    Findings – The paper illustrates how knowledge and understanding of the circumstances of measurement form a substantial part of what constitutes “distance” between an accounting user and the referred context. It is argued that the framing of numbers may be utilized as a means to control action at a distance. The findings also imply that the use of measurements regarding intangibles may be perceived as useful for purposes beyond internal management.

    Originality/value – The paper contributes in two ways to prior research on accountability relations and accounting as an enabler of action at a distance: it elaborates on what constitutes a distance, and it also adds an emphasis on reciprocal behavior by the provider of information in an accountability relation.

    Managing distances: Ontological work of ‘distancing’ in the consumption of accountingManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper sets out to contribute to the earlier propositions that accounting creates a distance and that accounts make it possible to manage at a distance. By moving away from distance as a problem and instead attending to how accounts are mobilized to enact distance, this study seeks to reconsider the relationship between accounting practices and distance. That is, to study the interrelation between accounting representation and action we explore practices of distancing. We report from an ethnography of board work in a theatre company, where we analyse the link between accounts and distance inside and outside of the boardroom. We find that when mobilizing accounting, actors in and around the board imagine the future consumption of accounts. Findings illustrate that distancing involves the enactment of a future self (self- distancing) as well as of the absent ‘others’. Thus, distance is an effect of the way accounts are mobilized and consumed and accounts are mobilized in particular ways to enable the enactment of particular distances. A second finding, that distancing takes place in many places simultaneously, implies that the link between accounting and distance cannot be conceptualized as singular. We suggest that the mediating function that accounting may serve between organization and action may have more to do with the ontological work in the consumption of accounts than with inherent properties of the accounts.

    Ontological work in board practices: Organizing the governing of multiple performanceManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The constitutive role of accounting, proposed in social studies of accounting, complicates the understanding of the relationship between organizational realities and accounting representations of organizations. Making this conflict an empirical question, the study attends to the ontological work in practices of representing organizational Performance in a boardroom. The study draws upon an ethnographic study of management and board work in a theatre company in 2010-2015. By attending particularly to the ontological work in accounting practices of knowing company performance, the aim of the paper is to contribute to the understanding of the role of accounting in the enactment of organizational realities.  Findings illuminate how board practices of monitoring and reporting on Performance produce multiple ontologies of Performance. Rather than striving for commensuration or elimination of such differences, the theatre board organizes its practices to uphold multiple, ontologically different, versions of Performance. The study contributes to recent discussions on fluidity and ontological multiplicity in accounting practices, and the paper calls for further analysis of ontological compatibility between accounting technologies and the practices in which these are used.

    The ontological making of a ‘fundable object’: Commensuration and incommensurability in a budget meetingManuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on four years of immersion with managerial and board work in a performing arts company, this paper examines the ontological work involved in translations between organizational matters and numerical representation. While the managers struggle with commensuration to make their arguments for increased funding coherent in numbers, the political representatives in turn struggle to extract ‘fundable objects’ from commensurate numbers. The study finds the process of ‘making things the same’ to enable budgeting decisions to be accompanied with a no less significant counterachievement of ‘making things different’. The study links accounting literature on commensuration to recent studies of ontology in Science and Technology Studies. It thus emphasizes the ontological achievement implicit in work with representations, contributing to our understanding of representation in accounting practice.

    The Quest for Public Value in the Swedish Museum Transition2014Inngår i: Public value management, measurement and reporting / [ed] James Guthrie, Giuseppe Marcon, Salvatore Russo, Sampson Lee Blair, Jennifer Higgins, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2014, s. 105-128Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose — The aim of this paper is to investigate the nature of public value in the context of Swedish public museum management and how it is created.

    Methodology/approach —The museum context is introduced, and assumptions and principles underpinning new public management (NPM) and public value management, along with examples of applicability and implementation in museums, are presented. Three key issues of convergence and divergence within the theoretical framework — strategic orientation, accountability and performance — are identified and introduced as a gateway to the empirical findings and the ensuing discussion.

    Findings —NPM-oriented values have become part of the strategic orientation of the museum sector. The results of this study show that there exist at least three conceptions of museum management that are based on two different strategic orientations, that is, accessibility and conservation, which also point to different conceptions of value.

    Social implications — Museum management can be seen as the management of tensions between conservation and accessibility and between customer orientation and stakeholder orientation towards the creation of museum value.

    Originality/value of paper — The findings will assist museum management determine not only what value is but also for whom it is valuable, taking into account both present and future generations.
