    The Cost of Debt Implications of Financial Reporting Quality Among Privately Owned Swedish SMEs2013In: FR abstracts, 2013, p. 72-72Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using unique data where SMEs choose between standard sets we document standard choices, accounting quality, and cost of debt among 1,787 SMEs. We find that 99% use Swedish GAAP, and comparing Gazelles to Non-Gazelles; we find Gazelles are more prone to pick individual SFASC/IFRS standards. We investigate accounting quality and find little difference between the groups. We find that creditors able to assess credit risks regardless of financial reporting quality resulting in lower cost of debt for Gazelles. We show that accounting regulation is less important to SMEs who manage to provide creditors with information to assess the credit risk regardless. The reluctance to switch accounting standards suggests that financial reporting would not improve if “better” standards were enforced. This supports efforts to ease regulatory requirements for small firms such as the European Commission’s publication of the report “Less regulatory burden for small businesses” and raise the question whether the IASB’s project IFRS for SMEs is worthwhile.

    Determinants of exploration and exploitation in the process of entrepreneurial learning2005In: Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research 2005: proceedings of the twenty-fifth annual Entrepreneurship Research Conference / [ed] Shaker A. Zahra, Babson Park, Massachusetts: Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship, Babson , 2005, p. 16-29Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a study of the process through which entrepreneurs transform experience into knowledge. By bringing theories of experiential learning into the field of entrepreneurship, a model of determinants of exploration and exploitation in the process of entrepreneurial learning is constructed and tested on a sample of 291 Swedish entrepreneurs. The findings suggest that entrepreneurs with a higher preference for an effectual reasoning and with a transitory career orientation show a significantly higher emphasis on an explorative mode of transforming career experience into knowledge. Similarly, entrepreneurs with a higher preference for a causational reasoning and with an expert career orientation show a significantly higher emphasis on an exploitative mode of transformation. The overall results give ample support for the overall argument that entrepreneurial learning can be conceived as an experiential process where entrepreneurs develop knowledge both by exploiting previous skills and knowledge as well as exploring new possibilities in the ventures they are involved in.

    Exploring the mindset of university entrepreneurs: Do they have a different resource logic?2008In: Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research, ISSN 0740-7416, Vol. 28, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Principal Topic: Universities are today increasingly acknowledged as powerful drivers of innovation, job creation and economic growth. To promote and support university-based entrepreneurship there has been a tremendous increase in the supply of entrepreneurship courses and the creation of business incubators. As a result of this development there is an increasing group of entrepreneurs that have been educated or fostered in the university context, and who often continue to develop their new ventures in close interaction with the university. The principal research question we ask in this paper is whether university entrepreneurs have a different resource logic compared to entrepreneurs that start up their ventures independently of the university and its surrounding innovation system. Resource logic is in the paper defined as a set of ideas for how to secure and use resources in the start-up process, and we link this concept to three streams of research that can be related to the resource logic of entrepreneurs; effectual decision making, bootstrapping orientation; and personal networking.

    Method: The empirical study was designed as a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was sent out to two groups of entrepreneurs resulting in responses from 182 university entrepreneurs and 209 non- university entrepreneurs. The hypotheses are tested using parametric and non-parametric tests in SPSS.

    Results and Implications: In line with our hypotheses the results suggest that university entrepreneurs to a larger extent have a mindset that favours both effectual reasoning and the use of bootstrapping. When it comes to use of network contacts the results were however contrary to our hypothesis. In sum, our findings add to our knowledge about the extent to which the close connection to the university has any significant influence on the resource acquisition behaviour of university entrepreneurs once they start an entrepreneurial career. The paper develops and uses the concept of “resource logic”. On the basis of this concept the paper provides general implications for our understanding of differences in the mindset of entrepreneurs in the start-up process.

    Organizing Senior Employees Occupational Health Resource Management Service in Innovation and Entrepreneurial Context2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Changing the determinants of health also requires modifying aspects of the settings that has not been done sufficiently in occupational health service. The European Network for workplace health recommended a holistic approach in workplace health promotion including programs concerning individual’s lifestyle and safety management as well as psychosocial and organizational work factors. To this end, we utilize a decision making model that captures the key components of explain how the aging issues pertaining to healthcare employees employ their perception, information, and judgment on decision choices. We collected 116 questionnaire responses from affiliated to the occupational health care center in Sweden. We found that employees’ perception of health care challenges and staffing had a significant impact on their decision choices regarding whether to request, stimulate and collaborate on activities. Finally, our results indicated that aging options related to healthcare issues to request, stimulate and collaborate on activities influence employees’ decision choices.

    Barriers and challenges in agriculture business development: A study of two leadership programs in Sweden2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this empirical paper is to illustrate two leadership development programs in Swedish agriculture. Further, it is to compare the two programs related to outcomes in terms of barriers and challenges in the development process and suggest possible ways to continue the leadership development for business model innovation in the agricultural sector.

    Design/methodology/approach: The data collection includes 54 interviews and a survey sent to 109 entrepreneursin Sweden. The interviews were collected with (i) entrepreneurs who participated in the Project ‘Ledarpraktikan’ (‘Leader practice’) (LP) 2013 and (ii) entrepreneurs who participated in the project ‘Lean Agriculture’ (LA) 2012. The survey was sent in the spring 2017 to 109 entrepreneurs (37 from ´LP´, 35 from ´LA´ and 37 not having participated in any of the programs called control group ´CG´). The overall response rate in the survey is 68% (51% from ´LP´, 80% from ´LA´ and 73% from ‘CG’. Content analysis and descriptive analysis have been used in the study.

    Findings: From the qualitative studies, we can see that entrepreneurs having participated in ‘LP’ perceive that they have acquired deeper knowledge and understanding regarding selfleadership than entrepreneurs participating in ´LA´. The latter entrepreneurs also have described their need for more knowledge in self-leadership. The entrepreneurs participating in ´LA´ have, through analysis of the day-to-day work, acquired a more developed systematic working environment. The comparison between the three groups in the survey show that there are several similarities between the groups, for example they don´t see institutional rules to be barriers in their firm development process. We have found differences in barriers for business development in terms of (i) growth willingness, (ii) lack of employees, (iii) lack of support and (iv) lack of spare time.

    Practical implications: There is a need for further leadership development knowledge in Swedish agriculture, both for entrepreneurs in the development of their business models and for agricultural advisors regarding their new role as coaches instead of traditional advisers.

    Policy implications: It is important that organizations supporting financial solutions for the agricultural businesses also support leadership development programmes in the industry.

    Originality/value: The originality with the paper is that there has been two large analyses regarding two leadership development programs in Swedish agriculture, which is unique in this industry.

    Entrepreneurs’ Communicative Behaviour in Technology-Based versus Service-Based Businesses — A Resource Dependence Perspective2010In: New Technology-Based Firms in the New Millennium. Vol 8 / [ed] Ray Oakey, Aard Groen, Gary Cook, & Peter Van Der Sijde, Bingley: Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2010, Vol. 8, p. 133-146Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To enhance the understanding of entrepreneurial communication strategies in the start-up phase of the business, a resource dependence perspective is presented. Resources can be categorized in several ways. Penrose (1959), one of the pioneers in the resource-based view, and the subsequent work of, for example, Wernerfelt (1984) and Barney (1991), have brought the individual, the entrepreneur and especially resources within the business into focus. The process school of the resource-based view focuses on processes and activities and internal strategic capabilities (Tucker, Meyer, & Westerman, 1996). Furthermore, capabilities are based on developing, carrying and exchanging information through the business's human capital (Tucker et al., 1996). Grant (1991, p. 122) defined such capabilities as ‘complex patterns of coordination and cooperation between people, and between people and (tangible) resources’. Baum, Locke, and Smith (2001) and Lee, Lee, and Pennings (2001) found that new businesses’ internal capabilities are the primary determinants of the businesses’ performance. One of the intangible resources could be a business reputation (Deephouse, 2000). A positive reputation creates advantages in order to obtain, for example, financial capital. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    From Communicative Practices to Communication Strategies: A Model of Entrepreneurs´ Communication Strategies in the Start-Up Process2015In: New Technology-Based Firms in the New Millennium Volume XI / [ed] Aard Groen, Gary Cook & Peter Van Der Sijde, Bingley: Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2015, 1, p. 247-259Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to propose a model of entrepreneurs' communication strategies in the start-up process by synthesizing previous empirical research. The focus on communication strategies in the start-up process is important for several reasons. We know that many businesses fail during the first year of existence and others are liquidated during the first three years of operation. We also know that new businesses face problems when entering the market. These problems are assumed to arise partly due to the liability of newness (LoN), that is lack of a track record and legitimacy. The model of communication strategies is built upon entrepreneurs' communicative practices since strategy is seen as a social practice. The chapter also emphasizes communication strategies as being a part of the research field strategic entrepreneurship. The model focuses communicative behaviours in terms of the message and the conversation as well as the chosen strategy in terms of planned and emergent strategies. Three types of communication strategies emerge from the communication practices; (i) content-centred, (ii) behaviour-centred and (iii) adaptive-centred.

    Growth intentions and communicative practices: Strategic entrepreneurship in business development2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on the “will and skill” of individuals who take part in activities of running a business. The aspect of “will” is studied in terms of growth intentions and the aspect of “skill” is studied in terms of communicative practices. The overall purpose is to explore how entrepreneurs think and talk about growth and how they act in their communicative practices to express their growth intentions and to mobilize resources for their businesses. To meet the overall purpose four empirical studies have been conducted. The empirical data consist of interviews and observations “shadowing” entrepreneurs, as well as mail questionnaires to Swedish entrepreneurs. Perspective Text Analysis (PTA) has been used to analyse growth intentions, and reveals growth in both a pragmatic sense and an institutionalized sense. Pragmatic growth refers to talk about growth in terms of space for development, space for money and status, and/or space for security and control. Institutionalized growth refers to talk about growth in terms of a winning scenario or a threatening scenario. The analysis regarding communicative practices resulted in six categories of communicative behaviour in the business start-up: (i) from no one to someone, (ii) from small to big, (iii) from inexperienced to experienced, (iv) from one role to another role, (v) from alone to a network member, and (vi) from silence to conversation. Further, the entrepreneurs show other-orientation, openness and adaptation in their communicative behaviour. In addition, entrepreneurs with previous experience from entrepreneurship education report higher willingness in the dimension of openness and adaptation in communication. The communicative practices are merged into a model of content-centred, behaviour-centred and adaptive-centred communication strategies. Entrepreneurs’ “will and skill” with focus on communication strategies are proposed to be an important part of strategic entrepreneurship.

    The challenge of communication (ChoC): Communicative skills in the start-up phase of a business2008In: Small Enterprise Research: The Journal of SEAANZ, ISSN 1321-5906, Vol. 16, no 1, p. 2-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Entrepreneurs in newly started businesses need to think of communication in a strategic way since they lack a “track record” and suffer from liability of newness. The aim of this paper is to capture entrepreneurs´ communicative skills using a framework of leadership theories focused on the dimensions (i) other-orientation, (ii) openness and (iii)adaptation. The data is collected through structural observations “shadowing” five entrepreneurs in Sweden. The findings show that the entrepreneurs are both oriented toward others and open to input from them. They often adapt to the situation and act in accordance with the co-actor’s interest. However, they also withhold their standpoint when they find it necessary. The entrepreneurs with highgrowth orientation were those that showed the most frequent other-oriented and opened behaviour during the observations. They were also adaptive in their communication with different counterparts.

    Barriers to business model innovation in the agri-food industry: A systematic literature review2018In: Outlook on Agriculture, ISSN 0030-7270, E-ISSN 2043-6866, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 308-314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of business model innovation (BMI) is widely recognized. BMI is especially important in the agri-food industry that faces enormous challenges as the demand for food increases worldwide. Much of the BMI research focuses on the technology and biomedical industries. Far less attention has been paid to the agri-food industry. This article is a systematic literature review of the BMI research in the agri-food industry. The article’s aim is to identify and categorize various barriers to BMI as described in the literature (in English) published in peer-reviewed journals between 1990 and 2014. The findings show a fairly even distribution among external and internal BMI barriers. Because the main barrier is the mind-set that is resistant to change, it is recommended the researchers and practitioners should focus more on the cognitive barriers to BMI in the agri-food industry.

    The role of entrepreneurship education and start-up experience for handling communication and liability of newness2013In: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research, ISSN 1355-2554, E-ISSN 1758-6534, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 187-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The aim of this study is to test the assumption that ability to handle communication and iability of newness (LoN) is enhanced by academic entrepreneurship education and/or previous start-upexperience.

    Design/methodology/approach – The data collection includes a questionnaire with a total sample of 392 responding entrepreneurs in Sweden. Statistical analyses are made between entrepreneurs with academic entrepreneurship education respectively previous start-up experience. Findings – The findings show that entrepreneurs with experience from entrepreneurship education report more developed communicative skills in the dimensions of openness as well as adaptation, whereas the dimension of other-orientation is found to be learned by previous start-up experience. When it comes to perceived problems related to LoN the differences between the groups were not as strong as assumed. However, the differences observed imply that also for handling LoN the authors identify a combined effect of possessing start-up experience as well as experience from entrepreneurship education. Consequently, entrepreneurs with experience from both, show in total the most elaborated skills.

    Practical implications – One way to improve future entrepreneurship educations is to make students more aware of the mutual profit in a business agreement and how to communicate this in a marketing situation. Another suggestion is to include starting business as a course work.

    Originality/value – This study not only meets the call for actual outcome from entrepreneurship educations in terms of changed behaviour but also for interdisciplinary research in the entrepreneurship field in integrating leadership research with focus on communication.

    Academic entrepreneurship: the structure of incubator management and best practice reported on Swedish business incubators websites2011In: International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business, ISSN 1476-1297, E-ISSN 1741-8054, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 445-458Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to describe the extent and content of information regarding incubator management structure, selection, support and network mediation on Swedish incubators websites and analyse connections between how different incubator management structure have an impact on the content of incubator best practice. The data is based on information reported on 44 incubator websites in Sweden processed within the SPSS system. The findings show that incubators with more male representation in board and coach/advisor personnel report a more active part in business support including network mediation.

    Financial bootstrapping in small businesses - A resource-based view on small business finance1997In: Frontiers of entrepreneurship research 1997: proceedings of the Seventeenth Annual Entrepreneurship Research Conference / [ed] Reynolds, PD; Bygrave, WD; Carter, NM; Davidsson, P; Gartner, WB; Mason, CM; McDougall, PP, Babson Park: Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, Babson College , 1997, p. 471-485Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It seems fair to argue that a major parr of the research in small business finance has been focused on the supply of capital, departuring from a rather narrow definition of finance referring mainly to "capital" as such. In our opinion research in small business finance has to originate from the small business manager's own logic, and the definition of finance has to be extended to include the different resources needed in the business. In line with this reasoning this study focuses on small business managers' use of measures in order to meet the need for resources without using external capital from institutional sources, called financial bootstrapping measures. The focus on resources needed makes us believe that the resource-based theory can be fruitful in order to help us understand small business finance. The research process was initiated with a number of exploratory interviews. On the basis of this empirical framework, together with a literature study, a questionnaire was constructed and sent to 900 small business managers in Sweden. From the explorative interviews a total of 32 different bootstrapping measures were identified. The bootstrapping measures were separated into two comprehensive groups of measures; (i) measures with the aim of reducing need for capital, and (ii) measures used in order to meet need for capital. The cluster analysis undertaken resulted in the identification of six clusters of bootstrappers, differing fundamentally from each other with respect to the use of bootstrapping measures. Further, independent variables discriminating between the six clusters were isolated in order to get a picture of the typical business in each cluster. On the basis of these pictures the six clusters were labelled: (1) delaying bootstrappers, (2) relationship oriented bootstrappers, (3) subsidy bootstrappers, (4) minimizing bootstrappers, (5) non-bootstrappers and finally, (6) the private owner financed bootstrappers. For future research and policy making we would like to emphasize the importance of broadening the focus when discussing small business finance, to include the small business manager's own logic encompassing the resource acquisition process as such, in order to better understand the way small business managers handle capital requirements.
