    The architect's role in the dynamic design process-possibilities and obstacles2006Ingår i: Adaptables'06 "Adaptability in Design and Construction" on July 2006 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands / [ed] Frits Scheublin, Jan Westra & Arno Pronk, Rotterdam: Eindhoven university of technology , 2006, s. 12-95-12-102Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The building process involves both dynamic processes and professional teamwork, a combination that confers on all the actors great economic and technical responsibilities. There are arguments for involving the user in the design process, so as to achieve appropriate outcomes. It is important to maintain a creative and generous working climate early on in a building-project, especially if users are involved: users may not be used to the aim of the process or the language used in the dialogue between the actors involved. It can be difficult to keep a dynamic process "alive" when a host of regulations and laws is directing and controlling both the actors' roles and their responsibilities to society and the project. There are also cultural factors and traditional working methods that can restrict the innovative design process. The architect can be the actor who guides the users through this dynamic process, keeping it alive. To achieve good results the architect needs certain skills and experience and need to draw on various models and methods to support the process. Which are the possibilities for and obstacles to steer the dynamic process? And what are the qualifications and working models needed to ensure success in this task?

    Working in a process with a joint ambition- Maria Sofia a case study from Helsingborg2008Ingår i: Proceedings of joint CIB Conference: Performance and Knowledge Management, Helsinki: Finnish association of Civil Engeneering RIL , 2008, s. 53-54Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This case study will give an example of how to work together in the building process with a joint ambition. The role of the architect will be in focus and will be described in the perspective of developing the future role. In this project a housing area with 200 apartments was planned to be built near Helsingborg in the south of Sweden by Helsingborgshem, the municipal housing firm. The actors involved started up the process with several meetings and with a precise goal concerning the costs of producing each square meter. The involved actors such as: The local authorities, the architects, the caretaker, the construction firm and representatives for the future tenants worked together in the early stages at workshops and meetings. In these early discussions the knowledge and experience from each part were used in favour for the planning process. The role of the architect in this process is interesting because of the possibilities to develop the future role. When involving the user in the building process several skills are required. The pedagogical role as well as good communication skills can be useful. Interpretation is also needed when the experts are using all the difficult terms when formulating the plans for the product. To be more responsible of the economical frames as well as keeping up the collaborative work is a challenge. More time and efforts in the early stages can be an investment with good results. Using the knowledge from the group in a safe atmosphere may also have a positive effect on the final product. The chance to create the "right product" with a higher constructability can also give good economical effects. The winners are the actors involved, the end-users and future tenants because of the possibilities to lower the rent. This case study will describe the actors involved, their common goal and their way of working together. It will also discuss the role of the architect and the possibilities to learn from this case study. The attitudes towards the different roles are shaped during the time of education. In which direction is the Swedish architectural education going? Does it support the collaborative process found in this case study?

    Managing Resources in a Sustainable Building Process2013Ingår i: Proceedings of SB13 – Oulu, Finland: Sustainable procurement in urban regeneration and renovation Northern Europe and North-West Russia, 21–25 May 2013, Helsinki: RIL - Finnish Association of Civil Engineers, 2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    Managing resources efficiently in a building process is of great importance in a sustainable development. The framework in a building process contains legislations and rules from a societal perspective combined with demands of a more efficient way of working within the companies involved. The knowledge of all actors involved must be used in order to solve this complex task. The quality of new buildings does not always match the expectations from the clients today so efforts must be done to improve the process. Another urgent issue is to deal with existing buildings. Participatory governance can describe the citizens’ democratic right to participate in decision-making concerning building or renovation processes. The public sector in Sweden discusses the possibilities of working more systematically with the ambition to use all the resources in a better way and with an end-user perspective. Today different processes seem to be parallel and do not always support one another. How can we achieve the best quality in the integrated process and in the end-product? Can a genuine dialogue and integrated processes be one way to achieve a better result? The case study evidence suggests that the primary focus of the logistics concept in construction is to improve coordination and communication between project participants during the design and construction phases, particularly in the materials flow control process.

    Problem

    The Building Industry faces challenges both in new building projects as well as when dealing with existing housing areas. The economical resources are limited and the regulations and restrictions are many. Examples from the Swedish building industry show severe problems with quality and how to manage the financing of the damages. The knowledge and awareness ought to be within all actors involved in the process but the question is if there are obstacles for using it? Where and when shall the resources be adopted to the process and which are the effect of a more integrated way of working? A gap can often be indentified between different processes and actors involved in this complex industry dealing with governing the built environment:

    Theoretical framework

    In the planning- and building process several kinds of flows are managed simultaneously. The flows are governed within and between the companies involved, the residents and the governmental framework of regulations and laws. If using a combination of theories from transport logistics, design methods and quality management maybe some of the existing gaps in the process could be avoided. The challenge is to see the possibilities in new demands in services and products. New skills, competences and attitudes are required when working with processes. It is also of great importance to create an understanding and acceptance for the changes. Starting with defining and focusing on the end-user in the process can be an important unifying force. Customer driven processes and a modern perspective on quality puts the end-users needs, expectations and requirements in focus. Using theories from the design area one could start with looking into Architectural design where decisions influence the artificial environment in our every day life. The act of designing is a complex activity undertaken a close cooperation with many other actors. There is a growing recognition of the importance to think more creative and dynamic by adding values and culture into the process If implementing the lean thinking philosophy and tools into construction industry one must include lean ideals and tools into the participating organisations. Eliminating waste and maximising value must be applied into the processes within the organisations as well as on site-based construction. Logistics activities commonly involve movement and storage for the purpose of having the desired object of at the right place at the right time. Transport, storage and distribution are cornerstones of logistics and its most visible manifestations. For the construction industry, logistics comprise planning, organization, coordination, and control ofthe materials flow from the extraction of raw materials to the incorporation into the finished building Several Swedish laws emphasize the importance of the involvement of residents and end-users in the planning- and building process. Communication and knowledge transfer can be used as a tool for combining parallel processes. Digital communication networks offer the possibility of better links between clients, designers, construction organizations and suppliers

    Case study results

    Three case studies are used to exemplify different levels of collaboration and integration between parallel processes. Case I and II was part of a doctoral thesis and the third case is an ongoing research project not yet documented.

    Case study analysis

    Case studies on large scale projects in Sweden shows that working with the end-users needs and requirements in focus can support the complex building process. Working in a more integrated way can support the complex mix of technology, people and decisions involved. Recourse logistics models and customer driven process methods can support the integration of parallel levels and phases in the process. The dialogue between the actors involved where experiences are shared can also give new and useful knowledge if it can be developed in a generous atmosphere.

    Conclusions

    Some experiences from three different case studies in Sweden shows that it could be possible to use more of logistic models and “Considerate Lean” models in the building and planning process. There is an opportunity to get long term sustainable housing by involving the residents and end-users and by using their knowledge in the process. Logistics require that all involved processes are communicating with each other. If not, the lean model will be hard to apply. Lean is about taking away all waste that is not used in the value added process. It concerns time, products, costs, etc. If this is done in a proper way it is possible to make a shift to a more value added process i.e. storing activities can be used for more productive and value adding work.

    Rapport 2014 – den goda och hållbara plan- och byggprocessen2014Rapport (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns flera olika anledningar till att förstudien “Den goda och hållbara plan-och byggprocessen” startades upp under våren 2014. Ett flertal aktiviter arrangerade av det halländska företagsnätverket Energi-och Miljöcentrum (EMC) i Varberg har sammanfört ett antal olika aktörer som annars inte vanligtvis möts. I dessa möten har idéer och inspirerande samtal förts som lett till en gemensam vilja att samverka i olika frågor. I denna rapport beskrivs bakgrund och genomförande av förstudien samt några sammanfattande resultat. Ett antal reflektioner om framtida möjligheter presenteras i slutet av rapporten. Alexandersoninstitutet har med sitt uppdrag gett möjligheten till oss på Högskolan i Halmstad att samordna ett antal möten och problemformulera processer och dialoger med koppling planering och byggande. Uppdraget har finansierats av Europeiska Regionalfonden via projektet Efterfrågad Utveckling. Resultatet har blivit ett antal temaformuleringar och case som nu kan användas för fortsatt arbete med forskningsansökningar och spridning av erfarenheter.

    Transferring intermediate technologies to rural enterprises in developing economies: a conceptual framework2017Ingår i: Prometheus, ISSN 0810-9028, E-ISSN 1470-1030, Vol. 34, nr 2, s. 153-170Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper integrates the contributions from different branches of the technology transfer literature to identify enablers driving the transfer of intermediate or appropriate technologies to recipients in rural areas of developing economies. An in-depth analysis of the literature shows that many enablers identified in the literature focus on high technology transfers and are of limited relevance in the context of rural enterprises. Other important enablers in this specific setting are ignored or insufficiently considered. This paper proposes a framework comprising a specific set of enablers that facilitates technology transfer in rural enterprises in developing regional economies. © 2017 Deycy Janeth Sánchez Preciado, Björn Claes and Nicholas Theodorakopoulos.

    What Explains the Extent and Content of Social and Environmental Disclosures on Corporate Websites: A Study of Social and Environmental Reporting in Swedish Listed Corporations2009Ingår i: Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental Management, ISSN 1535-3958, E-ISSN 1535-3966, Vol. 16, nr 6, s. 352-364Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The demand for information and transparency from corporations has increased over the last few years. Today, there are other information dissemination channels besides annual financial statements. One important channel is the Internet. The aim of this study is to explain the extent and content of social disclosure information on corporations' websites. The empirical data in this study is based on annual financial statements and such websites. A multi-theoretical framework is used in order to explain the extent and content of social disclosures on corporate websites. The findings support the positive correlation of size and profitability with the content of social disclosure information on these websites. In general, State-owned corporations disclose more social information on their websites than privately owned corporations do. There are significant differences between different industries. This is true regarding not only the extent of social disclosures, but also their content. Copyright (C) 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd and ERP Environment.

    Social disclosures in Swedish municipalities’ annual financial statements2009Rapport (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Public awareness and interest in environmental and social issues as well as increased attention in the mass media have resulted in a higher demand for social disclosures from organisations. The aim of this study is to explain the extent and variation of content in social disclosures among Swedish municipalities. The empirical data is based on annual financial statements and archive data from official statistics. In this study we take an eclectic approach, and use a multi-theoretical framework in order to explain the content and extent of social disclosures. The study reveals that municipalities in general report very little social information. The statistical analyses show that the extent of social disclosures is associated with size, tax base, tax rate, financial performance and political majority. In general, the same variables that explain the extent of social disclosures also seem to explain differences in the content of disclosures between different municipalities.

    An informal approach to management development at small and medium-sized manufacturing companies2016Ingår i: International Journal of Information and Operations Management Education, ISSN 1744-2303, Vol. 6, nr 2, s. 135-146Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Considerable debate and discussion exist on the effectiveness and relevance of various management development models/approaches/methods intended to support companies and their managers. In recent years management researchers have described successful network collaborations among companies that increase managerial capability, effect positive change, and promote beneficial development. However, the literature has not fully explored the fundamental principles and learning outcomes of learning networks in this context. As a result, organisers (or providers) of management development courses and programs lack the needed resources that help them create effective learning environments. This paper describes an informal management development approach known as the learning network in which SME managers share experiences and ideas in a learning network characterised by mutual trust and purposeful collaboration.

    Challenges facing small-firm managers in growing manufacturing firms2015Ingår i: Journal of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 2192-5372, E-ISSN 2192-5372, Vol. 4, artikel-id 9Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this article is to better understand the management challenges facing managers in small growing firms.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Empirical data have been collected in Sweden through structured observations (approx. 20,000 min) of the working days of six top managers in fast- and six managers in slow-growing small manufacturing firms in order to compare managerial behaviour in two different contexts.

    Findings

    Managers in small firms are engaged in many different activities, but a small number of activities tend to take up the majority of the managers’ time. These activities can be classified as either operational or administrative. There are notably small differences (both in variance and differentiation) between the behaviours of managers in fast- and slow-growing firms; actually, there are more similarities than differences. There is also surprisingly little time spent by the managers on strategic work, even in the group of fast-growing firms. This might explain why growth and innovation in many cases come to a halt or even decline in these firms and represents such a challenge for the managers when they do not prioritize strategic work.

    Originality/value

    The study shows that managerial work in small firms is characterized by a generic behaviour and that the managers mainly use a habitual and limited behavioural repertoire. Many managers have difficulties in changing their mainly operational and administrative behaviour and thus the underlying strategy of the firm. They are ‘stuck’ in a path-dependency mindset, even though the development of the firm might require another strategy taken by the manager, as a response to meet environmental demands. © 2015 Tell

    Designing management training using a learning network approach2011Ingår i: Research on Technology, Innovation and Marketing Management 2009‐2011: Introducing the Research Area of Innovation Science / [ed] Sven-Åke Hörte, Halmstad: Högskolan i Halmstad , 2011, s. 103-116Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In academic literature there are many references to empirical research about collaborations between companies and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in different network constellations in order to create change and development. However, when reading about all these different collaborations, it becomes obvious that the organising principles and under which conditions networks are effective to use as a development method are not clearly identified. In order to understand this complex area in a better way, I propose that researchers first need to understand the day‐to‐day work of managers and the issues they are confronted with in order to use a network approach as a transformation process that enables learning, in order to design a HEI‐based management training programme that supports action and therefore enables change. Another point of departure in this article is that, when using a learning network approach to design a management training programme, it is important to communicate and make different dimensions of learning very clear. Traditionally, it is often the cognitive (know how) and the social knowledge (know who) that is in focus when using a network perspective to work with management development. What I want to draw attention to in this article is that the psychodynamic knowledge (know myself), which creates self‐confidence and the courage/motivation to work with and try out new ideas, is important if change is to be reached. Also, this will create learning, not only at an individual level, but also at an organisational level, when knowledge is made clear through action (trial and error).

    LEARNING NETWORKS—A METAPHOR FOR INTER-ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

    Joakim Tell, Halmstad University, Sweden

    Principal Topic

    I want to highlight the importance of external relations and the qualitative elements in dialogue for the development of SMEs, by using the metaphor of networks as a base for facilitating company development. I have, during a four years period, followed and studied inter organisational networks from “within,” and seen the possibilities of using networks (external relations) as a development tool. In this paper, I reflect over the process where different organisations meet and share knowledge and visions on how to work with development questions and emphasise the importance of external relations for both inter organisational and internal company development.

    Method

    The method used in this study is action research. In action research the question at issue is addressed by both researcher and the so called “researched,” the other (e.g. an organisation) who presents as well as represents the question. The research the learning, is in the joint action, which, if successful, will at the same time and in the same act a contribution to solving or clarifying practical problems as well as generate knowledge.

    Implications

    The implications drawn from this study is that external relations is an important complement in the development of SMEs, both on a personal level for the people taking part, but also on a company level. On a personal level, uncertainty reduction and changed values are examples on development, and on a company level, different intra/inter organisational development projects have been initiated.

    These relations have also proved to be an effective medium for sharing experience and enhancing mutual trust among the participants. It has particularly been effective in sharing tacit knowledge and creating new perspectives.

    In order to give representatives from SMEs a greater possibility to reflection, researchers from universities can work more closely with companies in the region and fill the roles necessary to facilitate these relations. I see that SMEs can use external relations as an alternative form of organisation for development, where a group of key persons from SMEs and universities form this ad hoc “development group,” to compensate for internal lack of resources. This closer co-operation between university and industry will also have a positive, long-term effect on the development of the region and the relations between university-industry.

    Learning networks: A metaphor for inter organizational development in SMEs2000Ingår i: Enterprise and Innovation Management Studies, ISSN 1463-2446, E-ISSN 1469-5863, Vol. 1, nr 3, s. 303-317Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to highlight the importance of external relations and the qualitative elements of dialogue for the development of SMEs. This is achieved by using the metaphor of learning networks as a base for facilitating inter and intra organisational company development. The paper draws on a five-year field study, where the emergence and workings of inter-organisational networks were followed from a participant perspective with special emphasis being placed on the outcome for SMEs of participating in a learning network. The focus of these networks was on experience exchange and joint knowledge creation, as well as business relations. A significant outcome of this inter-organisational networking was the sharing of knowledge and visions on how to work on development combined with an emphasis on the role of external relations for internal company development, i.e. the possibilities of using networks as a development tool. These relations have also proved to be an effective medium for sharing experience and enhancing mutual trust among the participants. It has been particularly effective in sharing tacit knowledge and creating new management perspectives. Results from the study indicates that SMEs can use the learning network as an alternative form of organisation for development, where managers from different companies, together with researchers, form an ad hoc ''development group'' to compensate for internal lack of resources.

    Managerial strategies in small, fast-growing manufacturing firms2012Ingår i: Journal of Management Development, ISSN 0262-1711, E-ISSN 1758-7492, Vol. 31, nr 7, s. 700-710Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to create a better understanding of the strategic management behavior of top managers in small, fast-growing manufacturing firms.

    Design/methodology/approach: Empirical data have been collected in Sweden through both a survey of the 100 fastest growing small firms during 2000 and the development five years after (2001-2006), as well as through structured observations of the working days of top managers in six fast-growing manufacturing small firms.

    Findings: Managers in small, fast-growing manufacturing firms are engaged in many different activities. However, a few activities tend to take the majority of their time. These activities are either operational (for instance, activities related to production, marketing and sales) or administrative (for instance, activities related to the firms’ personnel and to financial issues). Looking at the managers’ activities from a strategy management point of view, they spend very little time on strategic activities. This finding may explain why firm growth in many cases declines or even ceases.

    Originality/value: The paper contributes to the theoretical and empirical literature on strategic processes in small, fast-growing manufacturing firms by showing that the majority of their managers use a “simplistic strategy”. Such a strategy may imply that these managers find it difficult to alter their originally successful operational and administrative behavior in order to develop their firms. Such managers are “stuck” in a path dependency mindset, even though the growth of their firms requires that they adopt a more flexible management strategy.

    Abstract [en]

    There has for decades been a discussion about the effectiveness and relevance of different management development methods in order to support companies to grow and develop. Management literature in recent years has made several references to successful collaborations between companies in different network constellations in order to enhance managerial capability, as well as to create change and development. However, the underlying idea and learning outcomes when using networks as a management development method have not been explicitly discussed in the literature. This makes it difficult for providers of management training to know how to organize and effectively apply the benefits of networks to create an effective learning environment.

    In order to understand the benefits of using networks as a development method, providers of management training must take as a point of departure the day-to-day work of managers, as well as their high concern for tasks into consideration. This in combination with an action-oriented learning environment constitutes the idea behind using a network approach to provide effective management training. The guiding organizing principles then become to review and to reflect on managerial experiences through a trustful dialogue whereby the provider of the training acts as a facilitator.

    Organising University-Led Learning Networks Among Small-Enterprise Managers2001Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis elaborates upon the use of a university-led approach to facilitated learning through organised networks of small-enterprise managers and researchers. The opportunity for universities to take on an interactive role in initiating development processes, and even regional change in a wider respect, has been explored through an action research (AR) approach. One of the aims of the University-Led Learning Network (ULLN) is to develop the knowledge and managerial skills required by small-enterprise managers in order to cope better with an economic and social reality that is difficult to survey and to predict. This was done through the ongoing review and evaluation of actions carried out within as well as between the participating companies. Different management perspectives were scrutinised in an environment of close co-operation, with the intention of generating new ideas for action. ULLN is also an approach that enables the university to fulfil the task of co-operating with the external world, which in Sweden is referred to as "the third task", and to reach out to small enterprises, creating a common learning partnership. Earlier studies of networks focusing on an exchange of knowledge and learning demonstrate, above all, the power of innovation that come from a close relationship between companies and universities and the importance of dialogue. The analysis of this study shows similar results. However, there has in the past been a lack of long-term studies which monitored and investigated the effects of co-operation from within. This study aims to rectify that deficiency.

    In this thesis, it is argued that ULLN has unique advantages, such as the initiation and support of important processes of change, which are not equally matched by other approaches, such as those which depend on consultants, traditional education or purely industrial networks. ULLN should therefore be seen as an important complement to the development support structure for managers of small traditional manufacturing enterprises. This study contributes an understanding of the process of organising these networks, and an analysis of the type of learning developed through such lengthy co-operation over six years.

    The results of the study can be divided into three categories, namely:

    1. Implications of organising ULLNs for universities and researchers, by providing an understanding of the advantages of using the university as a platform for initiating development processes for small-enterprise managers in networks.

    Considerable knowledge and experience were gained during the study of the organisational requirements of continuous development processes, in order to generate and extend learning between small-enterprise managers and university representatives in a ULLN. Results from the study acknowledge the importance of the university adopting different roles during the process, in order to build the trust and commitment necessary for facilitating innovative and creative dialogue within the networks. Another important point that is highlighted in the study is the importance of the university and small traditional manufacturing enterprises meeting halfway in interdependent relations. For the university, this means taking on new roles, and for the small companies, a willingness to learn and to co-operate with other companies and organisations in networks rather than acting alone.

    This type of close interaction with companies gives university representatives a better knowledge base of small traditional manufacturing enterprises (which make up the majority of the small-business community in Sweden) and their special needs, which in turn contributes to a deeper understanding and makes it possible for the university to introduce research projects that are more relevant and draw small enterprises into a co-operative partnership with the university. The networks are a way of increasing mutual knowledge processes by enabling managers and researchers to examine a variety of development issues and solutions in the company of others who have different frames of reference and perspectives.

    2. A description of the effects of the ULLN in the participating companies in terms of development projects initiated.

    The thesis further supports the conclusion that learning in small enterprises is stimulated by interaction with other organisations. New ideas and the inspiration for development work are created in meetings between different actors. As a result of this partnership, projects have been developed internally within individual companies and between the participating companies - for instance in issues related to IT, improved working practices, employee exchanges, ISO 14 001, and so on. Practical lessons have been learnt about different ways of handling various company-related problems, as well as theoretical knowledge about the processes of change themselves. Thus the ULLNs have both initiated important changes and acted as a bridge between the university and SMEs during development work. Through this medium, the university has been able to establish links even with the traditional manufacturing small-enterprise community.

    3. A description and analysis of the learning process that is created by using the network concept as a development tool.

    The trustful relationships established between managers and researchers have proved to be an effective medium for sharing experience and enhancing mutual learning. It has been particularly effective in providing a basis for the sharing of explicit and tacit knowledge that is required to support the implementation of different development projects. The ULLN approach has also facilitated a more reflective type of learning (double-loop learning) and created new management perspectives, which have inspired further development. Managers have also become more "secure" in their management role (as a result of the frank and confidential dialogue with different actors in and through the network) and have, for example, experienced a greater ease in delegating and contributing to the empowerment of their employees.

    Abstract [en]

    This book addresses the burgeoning interest in organizational learning and entrepreneurship, bringing together for the first time a collection of new papers dealing explicitly with entrepreneurial learning. Where past books have examined learning in a corporate context, Harrison and Leitch focus instead on the learning process within entrepreneurship and the small business. Areas covered include:

    • a review of the concept of entrepreneurial learning and the relationship between entrepreneurial learning and the wider literatures on management and organizational learning,
    • a review and development of a number of conceptual models of the process of learning in entrepreneurial contexts
    • an illustration of the applications of concept of entrepreneurial learning in a range of contexts
    • an international perspective on entrepreneurial learning.

    Towards inter-organisational empowerment?: Employee participation in the development of a network of small enterprises2001Ingår i: Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development, ISSN 1462-6004, E-ISSN 1758-7840, Vol. 8, nr 2, s. 113-125Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, a unique development in a network of small enterprises is presented and discussed. This is the creation of a network of employees that, in the first phase, had a function in parallel with the network of their managers, and which, over time, has led to tighter integration, by means of incorporating more employees in development work. The importance of trust and dialogue will be highlighted as well as the significance of both explicit and tacit knowledge. Finally, attention will be drawn to this network structure as a form of inter-organisational empowerment of employees. This is an extended and modified version of a conference paper that was written by Marieke Hoekstra, Max Lundberg and Joakim Tell for the 5th Annual International Conference on Post-compulsory Education and Training, Queensland, Australia, 26-28th November, 1997.

    Management Development in Small Firms: Understanding the Learning Dilemma for Small Business Managers2013Ingår i: International journal of Innovation Science, ISSN 1757-2223, Vol. 5, nr 3, s. 143-151Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, we link discussions about management development in small firms to the work environment of small business managers. In particular, our aim is to examine management development as an experiential process carried out in daily managerial practice. Using structured observations of managerial work, we found that small business managers operate in work environments with rich opportunities for learning. However, we also found that various and unexpected interruptions and problems typically fragment their workdays. In addition, such managers lack peer support and guidance and have few external interactions and little internal communication. As a result, small business managers find themselves in a learning dilemma that, in the long run, may limit their creativity and innovation. Based on these empirical findings, we draw conclusions about support for work-based management development in small firms.

    A learning network as a development method – an example of small enterprises and a university working together2001Ingår i: Journal of Workplace Learning, ISSN 1366-5626, E-ISSN 1758-7859, Vol. 13, nr 1, s. 14-23Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Describes how the network concept could be used as a development method and to overcome some of the barriers for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to initiate and work with sustainable development questions. The study has been done in close co-operation with managers and employees from small enterprises, where the ISO 14001 work has been initiated and supported through the network, using each other and the network as an arena for joint reflection, support, and as a resource pool. The result from this study indicates that a university-driven learning network makes a difference in the development work of SMEs – as a source for inspiration, in initiating and working with development projects, for reflection, and as a sounding board, and through its effectiveness in acting as a large organisation.

    Business Model Innovation in the Agri-food Sector2016Ingår i: International Journal of Social Ecology and Sustainable Development, ISSN 1947-8402, Vol. 7, nr 2, s. 1-13Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to deepen our understanding of what we know about business model innovation in the agri-food sector, both from a theoretical as well as a practical perspective. The methodological approach used in the paper is built on interviews, focus groups and observations of agricultural entrepreneurs and agricultural advisors in the agriculture sector and a review of over 500 peer-reviewed research papers for the period 1990-2014. The findings of the study indicate that entrepreneurs within the agri-food sector ought to shift focus from only a producer perspective to also include an entrepreneurial perspective, e.g. to focus on business model innovation. Based on this knowledge the authors present implications for research and practice. The research field is young and broad, but developing, and in need of stronger theoretical foundations. This article is based on a combination of a systematic literature review of a new emerging field as well as empirical in-depth interviews, focus groups and observations. © 2016, IGI Global.

    Business model innovation in the agri-food sector: a literature review2016Ingår i: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 118, nr 6, s. 1462-1476Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Because the business model is a fairly new concept, research is lacking on business model innovation in certain industry sectors. One such sector is the agri-food sector. Using a systematic literature review of peer-reviewed journal articles published from 1990 to 2014, this paper examines the where, when, and how of the use of business models and business model innovation in the agri-food sector.

    Design/methodology/approach

    A web-based search was conducted to identify peer-reviewed journal articles that contained a combination of “business model” or “business model innovation” with agriculture-related and food-related terms (e.g., “agri-food sector”). After winnowing out irrelevant and duplicate articles, 505 articles were chosen for analysis.

    Findings

    Using categories, the paper analyses various data about the selected articles. The categories include research settings, units of analysis, methodologies, and theories. Based on this analysis, the paper finds that these agri-food sector articles are primarily qualitative, empirical studies that focus on one or a few companies (i.e., case studies). The paper also finds that theory is not yet well developed in the research on the agri-food sector.

    Originality/value

    Systematic literature reviews of various concepts, theories, and models are common in many fields (e.g., information/software technology, healthcare, and organizational management). However, no such review is available for the agri-food sector, in particular in its use of business models and business model innovation. This paper addresses that gap with its review of relevant articles published in more than 300 journals in recent years. Based on this review, the paper draws conclusions about business model innovation in the agri-food sector and offers suggestions for future research. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited

    Intermediation for technology diffusion and user innovation in a developing rural economy: a social learning perspective2014Ingår i: Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, ISSN 0898-5626, E-ISSN 1464-5114, Vol. 26, nr 7–8, s. 645-662Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Technology intermediaries are seen as potent vehicles for addressing perennial problems in transferring technology from university to industry in developed and developing countries. This paper examines what constitutes effective user-end intermediation in a low-technology, developing economy context, which is an under-researched topic. The social learning in technological innovation framework is extended using situated learning theory in a longitudinal instrumental case study of an exemplar technology intermediation programme. The paper documents the role that academic-related research and advisory centres can play as intermediaries in brokering, facilitating and configuring technology, against the backdrop of a group of small-scale pisciculture businesses in a rural area of Colombia. In doing so, it demonstrates how technology intermediation activities can be optimized in the domestication and innofusion of technology amongst end-users. The design components featured in this instrumental case of intermediation can inform policy making and practice relating to technology transfer from university to rural industry. Future research on this subject should consider the intermediation components put forward, as well as the impact of such interventions, in different countries and industrial sectors. Such research would allow for theoretical replication and help improve technology domestication and innofusion in different contexts, especially in less-developed countries. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

    How do interactions of Kano model attributes affect customer satisfaction? An analysis based on psychological foundations2013Ingår i: Total Quality Management and Business Excellence, ISSN 1478-3363, E-ISSN 1478-3371, Vol. 24, nr 11-12, s. 1253-1271Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses how the interactions of services' attributes, classified by the Kano model, affect customer satisfaction. The present research argues that foundations of the attributes interactions' impact on customers' satisfaction are similar to interactions between intrinsic and extrinsic psychological motivators. To carry out this research, data were collected by interviewing a sample of 119 customers of pizzerias and 152 customers of video rental stores. The results show that the impact of a superior level of ‘attractive’ and ‘one-dimensional’ attributes on customer satisfaction, decreases from 30% to 70% if ‘must-be’ or ‘one-dimensional’ attributes are unfulfilled. These findings support the assumption that it is important to achieve adequate performance of ‘must-be’ and ‘one-dimensional’ attributes before offering ‘attractive’ attributes or hoping to achieve superior performance of ‘one-dimensional’ attributes. It is important for a company to be able to identify the Kano model category for each attribute. The managerial implication suggests that companies should identify and keep ‘must-be’ and one-dimensional attributes on an adequate performance level. Only in this way attributes classified as ‘attractive’ or ‘one-dimensional’ can bring differentials in the market and have full effect on customer satisfaction. No previous papers have studied how the interaction of attributes with different Kano model classifications impact on customer satisfaction and relate it with psychological aspects. This study may lead to the development of more refined methods to design, manage and improve services and products, finding not only attributes relevancy, but also their best combination.

    How to Use Improvement Gap Analysis to Identify Which Incremental Innovations Should be Incorporated into Products: Managerial Recommendations2014Ingår i: 2014 IEEE International Conference on Management of Innovation and Technology (ICMIT), Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Press, 2014, s. 48-53Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to show how the Improvement Gap Analysis method (IGA) evaluates the possible impact of incremental innovations on customer satisfaction, and to give guidelines about applying this technique in practice. Customers of two different products, that are used at home, answered questions about their current satisfaction, expected satisfaction, and expected dissatisfaction, with attributes for each product. The results show that IGA can suggest incremental innovations that could be offered in final products, and which ones may not.

    How do the interactions of service attributes affect customer satisfaction? A study of Kano Model’s attributes2013Ingår i: Integrating Practice In Pom Research And Teaching: POMS 2013 Conference Program, University of South Carolina , 2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper objective is analyzing how interactions of services’ attributes, depending on Kano Model attributes's classification, do affect customer satisfaction. The results show that the impact of a superior level of “Attractive” and “One-dimensional” attributes, on customer satisfaction decreases 60% to 70% if "Basic" attributes are unfulfilled.

    Nonlinear antecedents of customer satisfaction and loyalty in third-party logistics services2017Ingår i: Asia Pacific Journal of Marketing and Logistics, ISSN 1355-5855, E-ISSN 1758-4248, nr 5, s. 1116-1135Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to study the nonlinear impact of quality dimensions of third-party logistics (3PL) services on customer satisfaction and loyalty. Design/methodology/approach: By interviewing 167 small-size companies, and using penalty and reward contrast analysis, the paper explores the nonlinear impact of seven dimensions of 3PL services (safety, fault’s recovery, reliability, speed, flexibility, communication, and friendliness) on customer satisfaction and loyalty. Findings: The results confirm the existence of the dimensions’ nonlinear impact on customer satisfaction. It also shows that some quality dimensions have a direct and nonlinear impact on loyalty. The dimension “friendliness” has a direct impact on loyalty if the company has a below market average performance, which may lead customers to switch service providers. “Flexibility on collection and delivery” has a direct impact if the company has a higher performance, contributing to customers’ intention to continue using the service. Another finding is that, if the company delivers good service recovery after the customer found faults in the service, and if customers trust the company service, they say they intend to continue to work with the company. Research limitations/implications: The present research focused only on small companies in one country (Brazil). Further studies should be carried out to explore different countries, with different realities, and different size of companies. Practical implications: 3PL companies should not only deal with customers’ satisfaction, but also with other quality aspects that directly affect customer intention to continue doing business with the 3PL service provider. These are friendliness, flexibility regarding time and frequency of collection and delivery and faults’ recovery. Originality/value: The present research confirms that the personal relationship is a crucial aspect to be managed in order to keep customers in the long term. In addition, as opposed to most research looking for the antecedents of satisfaction and loyalty of 3PL customers, the present research shows that there is a direct nonlinear impact of the dimensions’ performance on customers’ loyalty, what should be taken in consideration by 3PL managers. It also shows how penalty-reward contrast analysis may reveal nonlinear antecedents that could be used for better understandings companies’ success in the long term. © 2017, © Emerald Publishing Limited.

    An overview of sustainable business models for innovation in Swedish agri-food production2019Ingår i: Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences, ISSN 1943-815X, E-ISSN 1943-8168, Vol. 16, nr 1, s. 1-22Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Companies in the agri-food sector are under increasing pressure to adopt sustainable business models that consider not only economic but also both social and environmental aspects. This paper examines how Swedish food producers use sustainable business models to innovate their businesses. The empirical data comes from a telephone survey with 204 companies and from case studies of 4 companies. A conceptual framework regarding sustainability-oriented innovation (SOI) and a eight sustainable business model archetypes are used to map and analyse the sustainability innovation practices and the sustainable business models. The results show a surprisingly sustainable business focus taken by many companies, which is not only on optimization, but also on organizational transformation and on systems building. The results show the companies vary as far as which archetypes they match. The most common archetype matches are ‘Maximise material and energy efficiency’ and ‘Adopt a stewardship role’. Only 10% measure success solely in financial terms, while 80% measure success in financial terms as well as social and environmental terms. Another conclusion is that companies in the agri-food sector have unique characteristics and the value intention of the entrepreneurs is an important building block in sustainable business model innovation. © 2018 The Author(s).

    Entrepreneurs’ Communicative Behaviour in Technology-Based versus Service-Based Businesses — A Resource Dependence Perspective2010Ingår i: 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, s. 133-146Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    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 Process2015Ingår i: 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, s. 247-259Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    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 development2009Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tillväxtintentioner och kommunikativ praktik Strategiskt entreprenörskap vid företagsutveckling Denna avhandling fokuserar på entreprenörers “will and skill”, d.v.s. viljan och den kunskap och färdighet som entreprenören har vid start och utveckling av ett företag. Med vilja avses entreprenörens tillväxtintention och med kunskap och färdighet avses kommunikationen mellan entreprenören och olika intressenter. Studiens övergripande syfte är att undersöka hur entreprenörer tänker och talar om tillväxt samt hur de agerar i den kommunikativa praktiken för att uttrycka sina tillväxtintentioner med syfte att anskaffa resurser till sina företag. För att uppfylla syftet har fyra empiriska studier genomförts. Det empiriska materialet består av intervjuer med, observationer (skuggning) av och enkäter till svenska entreprenörer. Perspektivisk Textanalys (PTA) har använts för att analysera tillväxtintentionerna. Den institutionaliserade tillväxtkaraktären tar sig uttryck i dels en vinnarbild, dels en hotbild. Pragmatisk tillväxt identifieras som entreprenörens skapande av utrymme. Det handlar om utrymme för idéförverkligande, pengar & status och/eller för säkerhet & kontroll. Analysen av den kommunikativa praktiken resulterade i sex kategorier av kommunikativt beteende i företagsstarten: (i) från ingen till någon, (ii) från liten till stor, (iii) från oerfaren till erfaren, (iv) från en roll till en annan roll, (v) från ensam till nätverksmedlem samt (vi) från tystnad till konversation. Entreprenörerna påvisar fokus på andras behov, öppenhet och anpassning i sin kommunikation med olika intressenter. De entreprenörer som har tidigare erfarenhet från entreprenörskapsutbildning uttrycker i större utsträckning öppenhet och anpassning i sin kommunikation. De empiriska exemplen på kommunikativt beteende har resulterat i en modell över entreprenörers kommunikationsstrategier med innehållscentrerad, beteendecentrerad och anpassningscentrerad kommunikationsstrategi. Entreprenörers ”will and skill”, vilja och färdighet, med fokus på kommunikationsstrategier i starten av ett företag, är en central del inom ramen för strategiskt entreprenörskap.

    The challenge of communication (ChoC): Communicative skills in the start-up phase of a business2008Ingår i: Small Enterprise Research: The Journal of SEAANZ, ISSN 1321-5906, Vol. 16, nr 1, s. 2-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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 review2018Ingår i: Outlook on Agriculture, ISSN 0030-7270, E-ISSN 2043-6866, Vol. 47, nr 4, s. 308-314Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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 newness2013Ingår i: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research, ISSN 1355-2554, E-ISSN 1758-6534, Vol. 19, nr 2, s. 187-209Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.
