    A holistic approach to acquisition of strategic resources2007Ingår i: Journal of European Industrial Training, ISSN 0309-0590, E-ISSN 1758-7425, Vol. 31, nr 8, s. 660-677Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to provide a holistic framework for the acquisition of strategic resources. Design/methodology/approach – The literature dealing with resource creation is reviewed and analyzed from a resource-based point of view. The major methods of acquiring resources are identified through the literature review and the applicability of the framework proposed is illustrated with an empirical example. Findings – Three ways of acquiring strategic resources are identified – direct investments, organizational processes, and product market positioning. All three ways of acquisition can be intentional or unintentional. Arguments for using this six-dimension scale are provided through deductive reasoning, literature review, and the empirical example. Research implications/limitations – The study identifies the six dimensions of strategic resource acquisition. However, integration of these dimensions is not a subject addressed in this study. Cluster analysis of companies according to these dimensions could enhance our understanding of the characteristics of companies regarding resource acquisition. Originality/value – Whereas previous studies have generally used a single-theory approach, this study highlights the importance of having a holistic outlook when analyzing resource-based competitive advantages.

    Deregulation of Railroads and future development scenarios in Europe2007Ingår i: World Review of Intermodal Transportation Research (WRITR), ISSN 1749-4729, E-ISSN 1749-4737, Vol. 1, nr 2, s. 146-169Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A decade ago, the European Union decided that railways should be privatised and deregulated (effective from 2007 onwards). Due to the recent enlargements of the EU and the risk of failures in the decision-making process, it is important to examine early adopters of deregulation policies. We analyse literature and use second-hand quantitative material to thoroughly review this process concerning three different countries (USA, UK and Sweden). In all three cases, the deregulation process has brought positive performance improvements in the long-term perspective, but in the short to medium term, there are a number of problems and warning examples, especially arising from UK case.

    How and what to imitate?: A sequential model for the imitation of competitive advantages2007Ingår i: Strategic Change, ISSN 1086-1718, E-ISSN 1099-1697, Vol. 16, nr 6, s. 271-279Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Research in competitiveness generally focuses on how competitive advantages can be developed. This is an important area of research, but as a consequence the process of imitation of competitive advantages has become a neglected area of research.

    A conceptual sequential model for the imitation of competitive advantages is presented. The model mainly draws on resource-based theory, provides a holistic view of the imitation process, identifies different hindrances to imitation of competitive advantages, and presents arguments for the scheme chosen.

    Managing retail chain profitability based on local competitive conditions: Preliminary analysis2007Ingår i: International Journal of Retail & Distribution Management, ISSN 0959-0552, E-ISSN 1758-6690, Vol. 35, nr 11, s. 912-935Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract:

    Purpose – The purpose of this study is to describe the determinants of profitability in terms of the strategic profitability model (the Du Pont model), depicting the “route” to high profitability in grocery retail stores located in market areas possessing dissimilar competitive conditions. Design/methodology/approach – Different physical characteristics (e.g. store formats) have traditionally been used as control criteria, but it is argued in this paper that management principles in retail chains should be based on different clusters of stores, formed from local competitive conditions. The paper proposes a clustering method based on five indicators of local competition. The research results are derived from local competitive conditions and the performance of 168 supermarkets, located in Sweden, and controlled by one retail chain. Findings – The paper identifies four clusters of local markets labeled monopoly, fleet market, venue, and duopoly, based on local competitive conditions. The findings show that the “route” to profitability significantly differs between the clusters. In monopoly the route to high profitability goes through high-gross margin, while in fleet market the key figures are low cost, large number of shoppers per week, and high productivity. Venue and duopoly both gain from high-average transactions per shopper. Practical implications – Supermarkets under different competitive conditions have different critical success factors and would probably be better managed, supported and evaluated on a different basis, i.e. retail chains need to adjust their approach to their supermarkets depending on local competitive conditions. Originality/value – Based on the findings the paper proposes unique management strategies for different clusters of local markets to further enhance current strength areas.

    Operating as a third-party logistics integrator without any distribution operations ownership2007Ingår i: International Journal of Services and Standards, ISSN 1740-8849, E-ISSN 1740-8857, Vol. 3, nr 2, s. 154-168Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Third-Party Logistics (3PL) providers have usually developed themselves through transportation ownership (mainly road or sea), and/or warehousing/freight forwarding capability. However, among these actual operations, there exists a number of other routes, e.g. by offering administrative/indirect work of sales, purchasing, business control and inventory management. With increased service level expectations among OEMs, there is a clear need for these kinds of well-defined and performed non-tangible logistical services. In this paper three case studies are presented, which show that a 3PL integrator could arise from this new service context, and could operate all logistical issues, even without any distribution operations ownership.

    Advanced manufacturing simulation: Minor system details can be major issues in the real world2006Ingår i: Industrial management + data systems, ISSN 0263-5577, E-ISSN 1758-5783, Vol. 106, nr 8, s. 1166-1186Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to highlight the complex nature of automated guided vehicle (AGV) simulation model building, and especially how system modelling details affect the end results. This is an important issue in all of the transportation simulation systems, since they are service-based by their nature, and additional inefficiencies create unanticipated performance downgrading.

    Design/methodology/approach – This paper uses a simulation approach, and simulated systems are based on a real-life case study and on well accepted hypothetical simulation example.

    Findings – Simulation system boundaries are often neglected in the model building, and especially interface to inbound (and possibly outbound) material flow should be considered carefully; based on these research results, AGV investments are seen in an entirely different light, as system boundary is enlarged to contain more realistically interacting elements. Similar system boundary issues were found from the case study: interface with overhead gantry did not provide near optimal performance. The case study also revealed that high speed of AGVs is not necessarily worth additional investment; constraints exist in safety, acceleration and ability to turn in corners.

    Research limitations/implications – The findings are based on the simulation work and, to see the real implications, real-life implementations on policy level are needed.

    Practical implications – Results of this research provide more insights for manufacturing unit investments, and especially in the scope of automated transportation system use. Also changes in manufacturing flow management issues, after investing in, for example, AGV systems, are different from in less-automated manufacturing units.

    Originality/value – This research work provides more insights to simulation research work, especially from the perspective of transportation systems. Also implications arising from case study are unique as being compared to previous research in the field.

    Managing Critical Success Factors in a B2B Setting2006Ingår i: IADIS International Journal on WWW/Internet, ISSN 1645-7641, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 96-110Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    When information systems (IS) are developed and implemented, in any context, a number of success factors determine whether or not the effort will succeed. Attention to success factors helps to avoid some costly mistakes, and speeds up the way change is managed. This paper is focused on how to manage critical success factors (CSF) in organisations involved in standards-based Business-to-Business (B2B), with a focus on organisational CSFs. An existing CSF framework in IS planning is applied theoretically to a B2B setting. Activities in a B2B standards implementation model are compared and matched against the framework. Results show that the framework is suitable for planning B2B implementations, essentially for strategic planning. Based on these results we have developed concrete guidelines to be used in the planning phase by strategic planners. Future work will consist of empirical validation, further detailing the guidelines in order to develop a practically useful ”tool” for managing CSF in a B2B standards implementation.

    Relations and Networks in the Processes of Establishment of Firms in Transitional Economies: The case of Scandinavian firms in Eastern and Central Europe2006Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Focus on the particular entry mode a firm uses to enter a new market, rather than the process of establishment dominates in extant literature. To fill this void, we apply an establishment process model developed from the network approach to illuminate the web of relationship forms embedded in the establishment process of two Scandinavian firms as they attempt to establish themselves in transition economies. In one case, the results show that Statoil’s process of establishment in Estonia was both less time- and resource-consuming because the firm drew support from significant actors in their network of exchange relationships. In the second case, a lack of home and host country support for Scania in Croatia resulted in an arduous and costly process and less stable position in the market, with the firm’s position changing several times as different problems cropped up. In light of the findings from the two cases, theoretical and practical implications for managing the establishment process are discussed.

    Strategic Alliances in the Baltic States: A case of Swedish Firms2006Ingår i: Competitiveness Review: an international business journal, ISSN 1059-5422, E-ISSN 2051-3143, Vol. 16, nr 3-4, s. 173-196Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of the Baltic states has increased due to increase of capital inflow from the West. A large part of the foreign involvement takes the form of alliance with local partners in the region. But how these alliances operate and fulfill the objectives of the partners in the Baltic states remain almost unexplored. By the help of depth interviews, four alliances, two in Estonia and the other two in Lithuania, have therefore been studied in this research work. The theoretical framework is based on the concepts of motives, resources, learning, network, performance and general environment. Cost reduction, market seeking, and development and maintenance of services have been the main motives of foreign firms in entering into the alliances. No clear cut motive is observed from the local partners’ side. Learning has been found important for both the partners and concerns cultural differences, local knowhow and adaptation to the Western way in doing business. A broader view of performance is presented by including network development in the article. Profitability, market share, and sales have been seen as short term while network development and relationships as longterm performance criteria in the alliances. The role of general environment on alliances and its impact on network development have also been observed. This study further suggests that alliances offering service dominated products concentrate on the local markets, while alliances offering products with less service elements have export as the target.

    The Future of Third-Party Logistics: Key Issues for a Logistics Integrator2006Ingår i: Contemporary Research Issues in International Railway Logistics, Lappeenranta University of Technology , 2006, s. 67-87Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Logistics has increasingly been recognized as a vital part of an organization’s competitive resources. With an increased outsourcing of the logistics function, due to increasing competition and high customer expectations on service-level, there is a need for more professional and well-equipped logistics services. This need is emphasized by the tendency that competition increasingly takes place between supply-chains more than between companies. There is a development of actors, known as third-party logistics providers or logistics integrators, who can take the role as integrator for several companies in a supply chain. This article focuses on the driving forces of these actors and how they can stay competitive by providing customers specific logistics solutions. A case study is presented of a Logistics Integrator and three of its customers with a varying degree of integrated collaboration in the logistic chain, and some key issues are presented from the provider’s and the customer’s perspective.

    The identification of functional regions: theory, methods and applications2006Ingår i: The annals of regional science, ISSN 0570-1864, E-ISSN 1432-0592, Vol. 40, nr 1, s. 1-18Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A functional region is characterised by a high frequency of intra-regional interaction. The text analyses how functional regions can be identified by using labour market data. Three approaches are applied in this task, named the local labour market, commuting zone, and accessibility approach, respectively. The text includes an application using the Fyrstad region. The situation is also studied at two points in time. The outcomes using the different approaches are compared, and the results combined have a richer flavour.

    Accounting and Risk: In the eyes of a financially successful entrepreneur2005Licentiatavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study dedicated to accounting in the context of entrepreneurship. The point of departure is a matter of controversy regarding the risk-taking of entrepreneurs. A risk paradox exists since entrepreneurs are seen as risk-takers although they do not exhibit a higher tendency to take risks than other individuals. The risk perception of entrepreneurs is a common explanation for the existence of the paradox. However, nobody has given a more elaborate and satisfying explanation of how the entrepreneurs perceive risk. As a result the relation between entrepreneurial risk-taking in theory and in practice remains relatively unclear.

    Information available is said to be a major contributor to shape risk perceptions of individuals. Accounting, which is the most widespread type of information in organizations, is in centre for studying the perception of risk in this study. In addition, the theoretical framework ties the notions of accounting, entrepreneurship and risk more closely together than in previous research.

    The empirical delineation covers a case study of a financially successful entrepreneur. This entrepreneur seems to have established a business philosophy that involves rules for what he will invest in, how committed he will be in an investment, how investments are financed, who he will cooperate with, how he will make the necessary decisions, when to invest, his role in all this and, interestingly enough, accounting is incorporated in his business philosophy.

    In short, this study implies that the perspective is crucial to understand the risk-taking of the entrepreneur. The entrepreneur might not at all perceive a high risk in a situation where the literature would suggest the opposite. Further, the case indicates that the entrepreneur uses accounting to perceive risk in managing operations as well as in entrepreneurial processes.

    An Empirical Examination of the Characteristics and Behavioral Tendencies of Swedish Consumers in Patronizing Different Retail Stores2005Ingår i: Journal of Euromarketing, ISSN 1049-6483, E-ISSN 1528-6967, Vol. 14, nr 4, s. 35-51Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study is to investigate the characteristics and behavioral tendencies of Swedish consumers in relation to their involvement with various types of retail stores as well as their shopping and patronizing behaviors under varying circumstances. In particular, the study focuses on examining the underlying dimensions of Swedish consumers' retail shopping behavior incorporating their lifestyles and attitudinal orientations as well as demographic and socio-economic characteristics. Data for the study were collected through personal interviews in Sweden. The study findings indicate that the most dominant lifestyle dimensions include fashion orientation, adventure orientation and aesthetic orientation. Several of these lifestyle dimensions apparent among the Swedish retail shoppers were found to be related to the number of stores shopped in a given period of time. Also, the most dominant factors were one-stop shopping, merchandise quality and assortment, and store communication factors. When the dimensions extracted based on the grocery store choice are used in explaining the number of stores visited, then we see an inverse relationship between the number of stores visited and the factors of one-stop shopping, merchandise quality, and poverty of time. On the other hand, there is a direct relationship between the number of stores visited and the factor of store communication and convenience. The findings of the study offer important research, public policy and managerial implications for retailer distributors and consumer goods manufacturers.

    Counselling encounters between banks and entrepreneurs: a gender perspective2005Ingår i: International Journal of Bank Marketing, ISSN 0265-2323, E-ISSN 1758-5937, Vol. 23, nr 6, s. 444-463Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – To examine how customers, both men and women entrepreneurs, perceive service quality of the latest counselling encounters with their banks, and to find out if men and women differ in their satisfaction for two or more counselling encounters.

    Design/methodology/approach – A combination of research methods is used. First, data have been collected through focus-groups interviews in a pilot-study; second, data have been collected through a survey study. The focus is on perceived service quality and customer satisfaction and further business, personal and situational factors are included. A total of 215 women and 487 men participated in the survey.

    Findings – There are few gender-related significant differences among women and men in their perceptions of service quality, and no signs which indicate that women perceive the service quality as less good. One group of women, in retail services, has perceived the service quality as being significantly different and positive compared with a group of men. Further, there are no gender-related significant differences between women and men regarding customer satisfaction. Another result is that significant differences are observed between one group of women and one group of men depending on the place where the parties met. The encounters took place more often in the women customers' office or somewhere else outside the bank.

    Originality/value – This paper shows that the belief that women as business owners, in general, are discriminated against by financial institutions is a myth rather than a reality.

    Managers' identity work: experiences from introspective management training2005Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The study takes its point of departure in the complex relation between “being yourself” and being manager, i.e. the struggle between what one ought to do as a representative of an organizations and what one want to do as a person. Introspective management training constitutes one extreme of focusing on the person in this matter, i.e. managers should develop their own unique leadership style upon “who they are”. The influences on managers from this type of management training are not self-evident considering the complex relation mentioned in the beginning. The study therefore aims at describing how introspective management training influences practicing managers. To reach that aim six managers representing three different organizations were followed during and after their participation in an eight month long introspective management training. For the managers in the study, the introspective training was mainly an arena for identity work. Identity work meant dealing with conflicting identities, elaborating and developing identities, roles and role transitions, and struggling to fit into different discourses, rather than finding the “true self”. The identity process is complex and is influenced both by direct interaction with others “here-and-now” and by the “generalized other”, which goes beyond “here-and-now”. Identity work and role transitions are important parts of management considering the relational aspect of both identity and role. The introspective management training seems to have a potential on the personal level for the managers, but the organizational gain is more doubtful. There is a need of reciprocity during the process to enable an organizational enhancement together with the manager’s personal

    Economic Efficiency of Compulsory Green electricity Quotas In Sweden2004Ingår i: Energy and Environment, ISSN 0958-305X, E-ISSN 2048-4070, Vol. 15, nr 4, s. 675-697Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Green certificates are not an efficient as a measure to correct for the effect of environmental external costs of fossil fuels and nuclear power. Nor are they efficient as a measure to create markets for new electricity supply technologies.

    Removing subsidies and introducing environmental taxes on energy sources with undesired external effects more efficiently corrects for incurred environmental costs. It appears that guaranteed feed-in tariffs are a more efficient policy instrument to promote the industrialisation of technologies for new sustainable sources of electricity.

    Alternatively, the certificate scheme could be reformed in a number of ways to improve performance. However decisions to change or abolish the instrument cannot be taken lightly since instrument stability is very important for the credibility of future policy.

    in high-tech small- and medium-sized firms (SMHT) through international strategic alliances. Due to the explorative nature of the study, a qualitative method has been used for data collection and analysis. A theoretical framework consisting of motives, resources, learning, network, and performance has been applied to analyse case studies. Learning, complementarity of resources, and development of long-term relationships are found to be closely related with performance. Another finding is that environmental issues often have significant impact on the development of alliances.

    Change of management control discourse: a result of dominating management ideologies2003Ingår i: Conradi research review, ISSN 1459-0980, Vol. 3, nr 1, s. 4-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Barley & Kunda (1992) state that the development of managerial discourse is best understood as the result of different dominating ideologies. The argument is that the managerial discourse has developed in waves that have alternated between rational and normative rhetoric. According to the ideology of rational control the manager should manage on basis of expertise. Centralised ecision-making and specialization are therefore desirable. In the ideology of normative control influencing the subordinate's attitudes, satisfaction and beliefs are given preference. The manager should be a leader who sets the goals, which the subordinates are responsible for reaching. During the period 1955 - 1980 the ideology that dominated management was rational control and from 1980 management has been dominated by an ideology of normative control. As management control is a management activity, it is assumable that management control discourse would develop in a similar way. This pilot study shows a change from rhetoric of rationalism to normative rhetoric. Furthermore, as management control is based on rational assumptions, the concept have rhetorically been broadened to include organization culture and HRM, perhaps as a means "to survive" in a dominating managerial ideology of normative control
