    Marknadskommunikation via sociala medier: En studie av Facebook som marknadskommunikationskanal2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The development of the Internet has opened up new possibilities for communication. It has created platforms where people can share information, knowledge and opinions. These platforms are called social media and with this new technology people have greater opportunities to interact with each other without physically being in the same place.

    Today Facebook is one of the most visited web pages with over 400 million active users. This means that it is an exciting channel for companies to use for marketing purposes. Facebook is a new phenomenon regarding marketing and is a relatively unexplored area. We have studied how Facebook works as a marketing communication channel and the risks and opportunities that it may imply.

    In our study we have used models and theories within the area of marketing communication. We have also interviewed companies and consultants, and made an observational study to research how Facebook works in practice as a marketing communication channel.

    The result of the study has resulted in strengths and weaknesses as well as opportunities and risks it may imply using Facebook as a marketing communication channel.

    Venture Capital & Banklån: Småföretagsfinansiering2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There are many different forms of financing for small businesses and two common financing options mentioned in the study, bank loans and Venture Capital.Venture Capital is a form of risk capital financing, investing in unlisted stock market. The feature of the arrangement is that those people are trying to find companies that can offer unique, attractive and in demand products on a strong growing market. Since VC-firms are taking a big risk in cooperation with the investment, the VC-company strong demands while assessments are made on the company will generate a return in the future.

    Bank loans are the most common form of financing for companies in the market. Requirements and assessment under the law is hard especially for small businesses because financing entails high risks. Banks require that the liquidity management in the enterprise should be stable because the bank's main objective is to repayment of debt and the interest payable on the capital.

    The purpose of this study is to examine the requirements and assessments VC-firms and banks make use of the financing of small businesses.

    Driving Factors for Converting Teaching-Oriented Universities Into Entrepreneurial Universities: A Turkish Case Study2018In: International Journal of Applied Behavioral Economics (IJABE), ISSN 2160-9802, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 34-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to accelerate economic growth, many countries have developed and implemented different programs and mechanisms. Benefiting universities' knowledge production and human capacity are one of those mechanisms and therefore entrepreneurial universities, in particular, are considered as a strategic factor in order to realize this target. While in many advanced economies, mainly in Europe and United States, entrepreneurial universities have been established over the years, but this has not been realized in emerging economies. Against this background and the activities found in Turkey, this article sheds light on the current state of Turkish universities regarding their development into entrepreneurial universities. Main findings show that existence of IP policy and TTO is driving factors for entrepreneurial universities. In addition, IP awareness activities in the campus, novelty search and using patent during academic promotion motivates universities to become more entrepreneurial.

    The Interplay between Open Innovation and Knowledge Management in SMEs2018In: Open Innovation and Knowledge Management in Small and Medium Enterprises / [ed] Susanne Durst, Serdal Temel, Helio Aisenberg Ferenhof, Singapore: World Scientific, 2018, p. 67-84Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, the interplay between open innovation (OI) and knowledge management (KM) in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is addressed. More precisely, the three OI archetypes, which are the outside–in and inside–out processes, and coupled process, are used to show this interplay. It is shown how SMEs can benefit from applying these three archetypes and what are the preconditions for applying them in the best way.

    The Drivers of Entrepreneurial Universities in Emerging Economies: A Turkish Case Study2015In: Handbook of Research on Global Competitive Advantage through Innovation and Entrepreneurship / [ed] Luís M. Carmo Farinha, João J. M. Ferreira, Helen Lawton Smith & Sharmistha Bagchi-Sen, IGI Global, 2015, p. 569-588Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several countries have introduced programs intended to develop or increase their competitiveness. Entrepreneurial universities in particular are considered critical actors in order to reach this goal. While in advanced economies many of this type of universities have been established over the years, this is not the situation in emerging economies. These economies are only in the beginning of this development. Against this background and the activities found in Turkey, the aim of this chapter is to shed light on the current state of Turkish universities regarding their development into entrepreneurial universities. The findings reported may be useful for academics, policymakers, and other actors interested in the topic.

    A resource-based model of organizational resilience2018In: The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability / [ed] Stefan Tengblad, Margareta Oudhuis, Singapore: Springer, 2018, p. 39-54Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter presents a three-dimensional resource-based model of organizational resilience. The first dimension is financial resources, i.e. economic assets, earnings capacity and intangibilities. The second dimension is technical resources which include products, services, production and supply chains as well as know-how in areas such as innovation, information systems, management of human resources and commerce. The third and final dimension is social resources which relate to various kinds of relations to stakeholders: employees, customers, suppliers, owners, creditors, etc. The importance of a constructive followership is stressed. In the end of the chapter, it is discussed how these three dimensions interact with each other. Therefore it is a need of taking a holistic perspective in decision-making and the ability to act swift, agile and imaginatively for preventing crises and to exploit opportunities.

    Organizational resilience: Theoretical framework2018In: The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability / [ed] Stefan Tengblad, Margareta Oudhuis, Singapore: Springer, 2018, p. 19-38Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     In this chapter, a general theoretical framework of the book is presented. The framework builds on various sources of literature and in particular on an organic view on economic and organizational development. Using the classical concepts of variation, selection and retention, organizational resilience is seen as the capacity of a company to over time become a selected variation in the marketplace.

    Furthermore‚  the framework builds on findings from complexity theory that highlights the centrality of unforeseen events and unanticipated consequences. Such events and consequences can be both positive and negative (serendipities as well as severe challenges). The chapter ends in a new model that emphasizes the importance for a resilient organization to find an adequate balance between reliability,efficiency and change capacity.

    Abstract [en]

    One way of gaining knowledge about organizational resilience is to studying business leaders who have contributed to create companies and business models with long endurance. In this chapter three successful Swedish business leaders are described and analyzed in accordance with the theoretical framework of the book. Some important results emerge from the analysis. First, an emphasis on creating decentralized organizations based on an active followership and trust is revealed. Second, the business leaders in question have shown the courage and capability to develop strategies even if they did not correspond to at the moment popular beliefs in society, and third the business leaders have shown the ability to find creative solution to situations they did not foresee, which included abandoning a previous strategy (i.e. fl exible adaption).

    Abstract [en]

    Good to Great by Jim Collins and colleagues (2001) is one of the most influential management books in the last decades. In this chapter, a critical analysis of the book is made using the framework developed in the book. This is made through an analysis of the fate of Circuit City, one of the heralded companies in Good to Great. The critique contains displaying methodological flaws and the one-sidedness in  Good to Great where simple and timeless business models fanatically applied is seen as a general recipe for success. On the contrary, the fate of Circuit City demonstrates the need of developing a strong financial base, efficient operations, good stakeholder relations as well as the ability to alter existing business models and to develop new models.

    Brukarorientering och nöjdhet i svensk äldreomsorg2016In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 93, no 2, p. 178-189Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln redogörs för de viktigaste faktorerna som påverkar brukarnöjdhet inom svensk äldreomsorg på basis av statistiska analyser av primärdata i Socialstyrelsens och SKL:s årliga undersökning Öppna jämförelser samt fältstudier. Resultaten visar på den stora betydelsen av goda relationer mellan medarbetare och brukare präglade av respekt, trygghet och inflytande.  I artikeln redogörs också för de fem viktigaste komponenterna i det som kallas brukarorientering nämligen uppgiftsfokus, individfokus, känsla, samarbete och tidsanvändning. Syftet med denna artikel är att uppmärksamma beslutsfattare och äldreomsorgsadministratörer på betydelsen av att sträva efter en hög relationskvalitet och att undvika ett överdrivet fokus på att nå goda rankningresultat, särskilt som dessa rankningar har visats överdriva skillnader i kommuners äldreomsorgskvalitet.

    The Framing of Corporate Social Responsibility and the Globalization of National Business Systems: A Longitudinal Case Study2010In: Journal of Business Ethics, ISSN 0167-4544, E-ISSN 1573-0697, Vol. 93, no 4, p. 653-669Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The globalization movement in recent decades has meant rapid growth in trade, financial transactions, and cross-country ownership of economic assets. In this article, we examine how the globalization of national business systems has influenced the framing of corporate social responsibility (CSR). This is done using text analysis of CEO letters appearing in the annual reports of 15 major corporations in Sweden during a period of transformational change. The results show that the discourse about CSR in the annual reports has changed from a national and communitarian view of social responsibility (cf. a negotiated view of CSR) toward an international and individualistic view of social responsibility (cf. a self-regulating view of CSR). The article contributes theoretically (1) by adding a national-global dimension to previous conceptualizations of CSR and (2) by showing that the rise of CSR discourse and activities in the last 10 years does not have to imply an increased commitment and interest in corporate responsibility per se, only that there are increased societal expectations that corporations should develop the capability to act more independently as moral agents.

    Abstract [en]

    A central claim in the chapter is that organizational resilience is not only a capability but also a philosophy of how organizations can manage surprises and face adverse, complex and uncertain environments in responsible and proactive ways, often even before crises occur. The chapter presents a holistic framework that analyses resilience from different perspectives: 1) as traits, 2) as processes, 3) as resources 4) as capabilities and 5) as prime sources. Furthermore, the main results from the book are summarized in seven main conclusions: 1) the changeable nature of the concept, 2) the multifaceted nature of the concept, 3) the importance of stakeholder interactions, 4) the relation between economies of scale, standardization and flexibility, 5) the importance of high reliability and 6) of local conditions and 7) that resilience is created by combining reliability, efficiency and change capacity.

    Abstract [en]

    Organizational resilience deals with companies’  and organizations’ ability to survive, or more positively stated, to maintain their vitality in a changing world that constantly requires adaptation. This chapter introduces and describes the concept of organizational resilience and presents an overview of the book.

    A resilient company or organization is in the chapter defi ned as the capacity to use its technical, economic and social resources in order to develop long-term skills and competencies, in an efficient, reliable and flexible manner, and in a way it could manage challenges and exploit opportunities. This definition is developed both by acknowledging previous defi nitions and also by using the theoretical framework of the book consisting of evolutionary theory, complexity theory and practice theory of management.

    The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability is a book about organizational prosperity and survivability. Its theoretical framework poses achallenge to many schools of management thought in that it recognizes the complexity and unpredictability of managers’ and leaders’ work. A key theme is that organizations and leaders must be prepared and willing to deal with the inevitable occurrence of unexpected events by using their financial, technical, and social resources in ways that empower employees in lateral as well as horizontal decision-making processes. The book’s chapters are based on empirical research conducted at many real companies and in many important business areas. The empirical chapters, for example, present case studies of such events as the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, the rise and fall of Circuit City, the turn-around of afashion company, and many others.

    The book presents two new theoretical managerial models: (1) an organizational resilience resource model based on a combination of financial, technical, and social resources; and (2) an organizational capability model that incorporates the three key concepts of reliability, efficiency, and change capacity. Within the framework of organizational resilience, these models can be used to analyse what makes some organizations viable and others not, to integrate important spheres of knowledge into managerial operations, and to understand the role of boards and top managers who work in complex and uncertain environments. While the book offers no easy recipes for achieving organizational resilience, it does offer a holistic explanation of the challenges modern organizations must master.

    När mormors resa blir digital: Kognitiva aspekter på äldres interaktion med pappersbaserad respektive digital kollektivtrafikinformation - ett situerat perspektiv2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Samhällets digitalisering innebär stora möjligheter till spridning och återbruk av informationsamtidigt som digitala klyftor skapas. Bland de medborgare som inte till fullo anammat den nyatekniken återfinns en stor grupp äldre, något som påverkar dessa individers möjligheter till en höglivskvalité i form av delaktighet, oberoende och god rörlighet. En aspekt i detta sammanhang äräldres möjligheter att åka kollektivt och på egen hand planera och genomföra resor, något somförutsätter en god tillgång till och förståelse av kollektivtrafikinformation. Föreliggandeexamensarbete avser här att belysa kognitiva effekter av det skifte i interaktionsmiljön som sker närkollektivtrafikens tids- och linjeinformation digitaliseras. Studien baserar sig på en situerad ansats tillmänniskans kognition, ett teoretiskt perspektiv som innebär att tänkandet baserar sig påmultimodala konceptuella erfarenheter. De fynd som studien resulterar i pekar på att digitaliseradetjänster kan erbjuda viss problemlösande avlastning, men att dessa samtidigt belastar det episodiskaminnet och har emotionell påverkan.

    Modelleringsmetodik med handboken som pedagogiskt förmedlingsmedium.2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Från ett intresse för realism och krigets estetik kommer detta examensarbete. Det består av ett 3D-grafikst verk i form av en 3D-modell av vapnet Mp40 och ett pedagogiskt inriktat verk i form av en handbok. På grund av rapportens tekniska natur du som läsare ha en del kunskap på området men för att hjälpa situationen finns en begreppsförklaring att tillgå i kapitel 3.6 Begreppsförklaring.

    Med aktuella metoder och programvaran Maya 2009 64-bit (Autodesk, 2008) skapades den högupplösta modellen utifrån två typer av referenser, profilbilden och förståelsebilden. Med hjälp av en omfattande referensdatabas kunde modellens realism och detaljrikedom bevaras. Genom olika processer skapades sedan den lågupplösta modellen för slutgiltig generering av normal map[1] och textur. Processen underlättades med hjälp av ett egenprogrammerat Maya-scrip för att utföra funktioner som inte redan fanns i Programvaran.

    I den handbok som skapades i och med detta examensarbete går det att läsa om hur ytterligare detaljer kan adderas till en normal map i efterhand. Detta för detaljer som är otympliga att skapa i 3D-modellen. Denna handbok finns tillgänglig i bilaga 9.2 Handbok eller på följande adress[2] Boken Att skriva bättre i jobbet (Fritzes Förlag, 1995) har legat till grund för handbokens utformning pedagogiska bakgrund.

    I diskussionen knyts sedan det 3D-grafiska arbetet med modeller från tre spel. En återkoppling mellan denna modell och spelens modeller sker på så vis att de jämförs och fördelar vägs mot nackdelar. I slutsatsen vägs arbetets bra sidor mot arbetets dåliga sidor och slutsatsen är att arbetet lyckats på en grundläggande nivå men att saker och ting är mer komplicerade än så.

    [1] En normal map är en textur som simulerar vinkelskiftningar på en plan yta genom att manipulera ytans normaler.

    Driver adherence to recommendations from support systems improves if the systems explain why they are given: A simulator study2018In: Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour, ISSN 1369-8478, E-ISSN 1873-5517, Vol. 56, p. 420-435Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a large-scale simulator study on driver adherence to recommendationsgiven by driver support systems, specifically eco-driving support and navigation support.123 participants took part in this study, and drove a vehicle simulator through a pre-defined environment for a duration of approximately 10 min. Depending on the experi-mental condition, participants were either given no eco-driving recommendations, or asystem whose provided support was either basic (recommendations were given in theform of an icon displayed in a manner that simulates a heads-up display) or informative(the system additionally displayed a line of text justifying its recommendations). A naviga-tion system that likewise provided either basic or informative support, depending on thecondition, was also provided.

    Effects are measured in terms of estimated simulated fuel savings as well as engine brak-ing/coasting behaviour and gear change efficiency. Results indicate improvements in allvariables. In particular, participants who had the support of an eco-driving system spenta significantly higher proportion of the time coasting. Participants also changed gears atlower engine RPM when using an eco-driving support system, and significantly more sowhen the system provided justifications. Overall, the results support the notion that pro-viding reasons why a support system puts forward a certain recommendation improvesadherence to it over mere presentation of the recommendation.

    Finally, results indicate that participants’ driving style was less eco-friendly if the navi-gation system provided justifications but the eco-system did not. This may be due to par-ticipants considering the two systems as one whole rather than separate entities withindividual merits. This has implications for how to design and evaluate a given driver sup-port system since its effectiveness may depend on the performance of other systems in thevehicle.

    Tooniga och Realistiska Texturer: skillnader mellan dessas skapandeprocesser2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I detta arbete undersöks skillnaden mellan skapandet av tooniga kontra realistiska texturer för polygonmodeller till datorspel. För att alls kunna undersöka detta har jag först fått ta reda på vad som faktiskt gör en grafisk stil toonig. Detta, har jag kommit fram till, är om det som avbildats dels blivit förenklat och även stiliserat (det vill säga ikoniskt abstraherat och även expressionistiskt abstraherat). Det som definierat en realistisk stil har jag låtit vara något som påminner om sådant som kan ses i foton. Jag har sedan åt fyra olika digitala 3D-modeller skapat texturer i två olika grafiska stilar: toonig och realistisk. Därefter har jag jämfört skillnaderna mellan skapandeprocesserna av dessa. De tooniga har skapats med hjälp av det jag kommit fram till om toonighet, och framförallt med hjälp från grafikerna på det spelföretag som jag jobbat på under en stor del av exjobbstiden. De realistiska har skapats med hjälp av litteratur om spelgrafikskapande. Det jag kommit fram till av denna undersökning har varit att realistiska texturer innehåller en större mängd mindre, diffusa detaljer i och med deras så kallade bastexturer, vilket förenklar arbetet med andra detaljer, såsom skuggor och liknande. Tooniga texturer har istället ett mindre antal mer tydliga detaljer, vilka kräver mer arbete då dessa inte blandas upp med någon bastextur, och sonika blir mer synliga.
