    Career in Swedish Retail2016Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A career in retailing is to a large extent a boundaryless career. A career in retail does not limit the individual to a single organisation, to a single role/position, or to a hierarchical rung on the organisational ladder. Both co-workers and managers move quite easily among organisations within the same retail area, between different retail areas, and in and out of the retail sector.

    • In the past, the description of retailing as a transitory employment sector has had a negative connotation. Yet this description can also have quite a positive connotation. For example, experience acquired in the retail sector can be very useful in other work sectors. Moreover, people working in retail are generally motivated by job security, a job that is possible to combine to leisure/family, and a job close to home. They are typically much less motivated by traditional career advancement opportunities, the exercise of power over others, and by the desire to make decisions.

    • People working in retail have a rather limited interest in becoming managers in part because their major work motivators are not the motivators one usually associates with management career paths.

    • Gender is a relatively weak distinguishing variable in terms of retail careers, but there are some statistically significant – yet small – differences in the work characteristics of men and women in retail. For example, women in retail prioritize work-life balance, the proximity of workplace to home, and outside interests more than men in retail. These priorities have a limiting effect on their opportunities to accept managerial positions and to follow traditional, upward career paths.

    • There are more women than men working in the retail sector today, but a larger percentage of men in management positions. However, this cannot be explained by differences between the motivations of men and women to become managers or in their attitudes towards their own managerial capabilities. The explanation lies in other, more indirect factors such as the expectations of today’s managers.

    • Women generally earn less than men in the retail sector. This inequality is especially evident when differences in work responsibilities exist (e.g., specialized areas, subbranches, management tasks).

    • There is some general scepticism among employees in the retail sector as far as the extent to which their employers are willing to commit to their well-being and development. This finding has important practical implications when employees sense a lack of employer commitment to them.

    • People outside retail sector generally have a more negative picture of the retail sector than the people within the sector. People in the retail sector are relatively satisfied and think their work is varied and interesting.

    • The number of women at the lower management levels (at the store-level) is increasing. Because of this trend, which is expected to continue, in the relatively near future there may be as many female managers as male managers at this level. However, at the upper management levels in retail, there are more than ten men for every woman and no indications of change.

    • Job security is the most important career anchor for retail employees in Sweden. This finding has very important practical implications because job security is typically not associated with employment in the retail sector. It is a factor that can be an important consideration for retailers.

    Co-optation as a response to competing institutional logics: Professionals and managers in healthcare2018In: Journal of Professions and Organization, ISSN 2051-8803, E-ISSN 2051-8811, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 71-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Researchers working under the institutional logics perspective find the struggle between managerial logic and various professional logics one of the most intriguing issues in healthcare organizations. Previous research provided several explanations at both the organizational level (mediation, hybridization, and selective coupling) and the individual actor level (hierarchization, sense making, reinterpretation, and hijacking) for the coexistence of professional and managerial logics in healthcare. However, all of these explanations are based on the underlying institutional logics not changing. In this article, we show that co-optation can explain the coexistence of institutional logics, but that it also causes the underlying institutional logics to change. Co-optation means that an actor adopts a strategic element from another logic that retains the most important elements of its own logic. Empirically, this article illustrates co-optation processes through a qualitative study of outpatient units in child and adolescent psychiatric care in Sweden. Using an institutional logics framework, we describe and explain how managers co-opted elements of professional logics and professionals co-opted elements of managerial logic in their attempts to support their own interests. Even if co-optation is performed to protect the home logic, the co-opted elements ultimately change it. This study contributes to the institutional logics framework by describing and explaining how co-optation can be a dynamic response to competing logics at the individual actor level.

    Does patient-centred care mean risk aversion and risk ignoring?: Unintended consequences of NPM reforms2012In: International Journal of Public Sector Management, ISSN 0951-3558, E-ISSN 1758-6666, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 260-271Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This article aims to describe and analyze the results of efforts to improve patient-centered care (PCC) in psychiatric healthcare.

    Design/methodology/approach – Using the methodology of a qualitative case study, the authors studied three Swedish child and adolescent psychiatric care (CAP) units in order to describe how patient-centered actions are performed. They conducted 62 interviews, made 11 half-day observations, and shadowed employees for two days.

    Findings – The article shows that the increased focus on accountability for unit performance and medical risks results in unintended consequences. The patient’s medical risk is transformed to a personal risk for the psychiatrist and the resource risk is transformed to a personal risk for the unit manager. Patients become risk objects for both psychiatrists and unit managers, which creates an alignment between them to try to send patients elsewhere. New public management (NPM) reforms may consequently lead to the institutionalization of unintended healthcare practices.

    Practical implications – The article shows that accountability pressure to reduce patient risk may create new risks for patients.

    Originality/value – The study uses theoretical concepts of risk tradeoffs (risk substitution and risk transformation), which were developed for the macro level, to explain the unintended consequences of NPM reforms at the micro level.

    Multiprofessional Cooperation and Accountability Pressures: Consequences of a post-new public management concept in a new public management context2012In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 14, no 6, p. 835-855Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how multiprofessional healthcare teams, working as a post-New Public Management (post-NPM) reform, respond to accountability pressure resulting from the implementation of NPM reforms. The team members use three strategies to respond to this pressure: responsibility avoiding that results in conflict; responsibility ignoring that results in parallel work and responsibility sharing that results in cooperation. Depending on how the professionals respond to different contextual factors, the choice of strategies can either foster or inhibit cooperation in multiprofessional teams. Achieving holistic patient care is threatened when accountability pressure increases for teams that have not yet developed their internal routines of cooperation.

    An experience based view on leader development: leadership as an emergent and complex accomplishment2016In: Development and Learning in Organizations: An International Journal, ISSN 1477-7282, E-ISSN 1758-6097, Vol. 30, no 6, p. 30-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The paper aims to identify and address matching problems in leader development and to propose how these problems can be dealt with.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Based on previous research, traditional leadership development (LD) is criticized and alternative approaches are suggested.

    Findings

    This research identifies two major matching problems in traditional LD – between participant and development effort and between development effort and realities of managerial work. A context-sensitive and emergent view of LD is suggested to address these matching problems.

    Practical implications

    The paper illustrates the need of leader development that is addressing the complex nature of managerial work in a more holistic way and to help participants to understand how such complexities can be dealt with.

    Originality/value

    An alternative view of leader development is identified. It matches managers’ diversities and the realities of managerial work better than traditional leader development does.

    When complexity meets culture: new public management and the Swedish police2009In: Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management/Emerald, ISSN 1176-6093, E-ISSN 1758-7654, Vol. 6, no 1/2, p. 41-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how new public management (NPM) reform from the national level is implemented as practice in a local unit within the police sector in Sweden.Design/methodology/approach: A qualitative case-study approach is applied using semi-structured interviews, participant observations and analysis of documents.Findings: The paper illustrates different kinds of resistance at the organizational level. The dominant form of resistance was found to be cultural distancing. The paper demonstrates a tendency among police officers to deal with a changing and more complex work context by embracing a traditional work role.Research limitations/implications: The paper shows that reforms that add complexity may fail because of potential contradictions and the limited capacity and motivation of employees to deal with the complexity in the manner prescribed by NPM. Practical implications: The paper shows that the popular trend to adopt multi-dimensional forms of control (for instance the balanced-scorecard approach) may fail if there is a lack of consensus about what goals and measurement are important and/or there is a lack of dialogue about how the new goals should be implemented in practice.Originality/value: Research about NPM-reforms in the police sector is rare. The original contribution of this paper is to study NPM-reforms with a focus on the role of complexity in relation to resistance.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite the considerable number of studies on workplace identities in the organizational literature, the project management area of research is relatively de-personalized. In seeking to develop this research, this qualitative, longitudinal study of a product development project in the automotive industry focuses on how individuals use the project as a resource for their own identity construction while at the same time the project colonizes their identities. The study reveals that the identity construction processes of the project leaders and of the project are closely intertwined and co-constructed. The project leaders face a paradoxical situation: their identities are colonized, regulated, and controlled by their company (or car, or project), and yet they believe they make their choices voluntarily. However, the core values of projectified society are ‘hidden’ in the identity work that an automobile company consciously uses to develop cars associated with specific emotions and values.

    Mechanical Behaviour of Adhesive Layers: Methods to Extract Peel and Mixed Mode Properties2006Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Mechanical Behaviour of Adhesive Layers Methods to Extract Peel and Mixed Mode Properties TOBIAS ANDERSSON Department of Applied Mechanics Chalmers University of Technology ABSTRACT This thesis is concerned with methods to extract material properties of thin adhesive layers loaded in peel and in mixed mode. The first part of the thesis is devoted to an experimental method to determine the complete stress-elongation relation (or cohesive law) for an adhesive layer loaded in peel using the DCB-specimen. The method is based on the concept of equilibrium of the energetic forces acting on the specimen. Two sources of energetic forces are identified: the start of the adhesive layer and the positions of the two acting loads. By use of the concept of equilibrium of energetic forces, it is possible to measure the energy release rate of the adhesive layer instantaneously during an experiment. The complete stress-elongation relation is found to be the derivative of the energy release rate with respect to the elongation of the adhesive layer at its start. By this procedure, an effective property of the adhesive layer is measured. The validity of the approach is investigated by experiments where the adherends deform 1) elastically and 2) plastically. It is found that a unique stress-elongation is obtained when the adherends deform elastically. The same relation cannot be used to predict the experiments where the adherends deform plastically indicating that the approach has limited applicability. The second part of the thesis is concerned with the development of a mesomechanical finite element model of a thin adhesive layer loaded in mixed mode. The model is calibrated to previously performed experiments. In these, the adhesive layer is loaded in monotonically increasing peel or shear. An in situ SEM-study is also performed and used to guide the modelling and calibration. The purpose of the mesomechanical finite element model is to facilitate the development of constitutive laws for adhesive layers. The modelling is based on Xu and Needleman’s method where all continuum finite-elements are surrounded by interface elements that allow for the development of micro cracks. Thus, this enables the modelling of the entire process of degradation and fracture of the adhesive layer. A genetic algorithm is developed for the calibration. The simulations are shown to be in reasonably good agreement with the experiments. Keywords: adhesive layer, stress-elongation relation, J-integral, energetic force, experimental method, RVE, interface elements, genetic algorithm

    On the effective constitutive properties of a thin adhesive layer loaded in peel2006In: International Journal of Fracture, ISSN 0376-9429, E-ISSN 1573-2673, Vol. 141, no 1-2, p. 227-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An experimental method to determine the complete stress-elongation relation for a structural adhesive loaded in peel is presented. Experiments are performed on the double cantilever beam specimen, which facilitates a more stable experimental set-up as compared with conventional methods like the butt-joint test. The method is based on the concept of equilibrium of the energetic forces acting on the specimen. Two sources of energetic forces are identified: the start of the adhesive layer and the positions of the two acting loads. By use of the concept of equilibrium of energetic forces, it is possible to measure the energy release rate of the adhesive layer instantaneously during an experiment. The complete stress-elongation relation is found to be the derivative of the energy release rate with respect to the elongation of the adhesive layer at its start. By this procedure, an effective property of the adhesive layer is measured. That is, the fields are assumed to be constant through the thickness of the layer and only vary along the layer. To investigate the validity of this approach, experiments are performed on five different groups of specimens with different dimensions. This leads to large variations in the length of the damage zone at the start of the adhesive layer. Four of the experimental groups are used to determine the stress-elongation relation. This is found to be independent of the geometry. For the remaining experimental group, the adherends deform plastically and simulations are performed with the stress-elongation relation determined from the four elastic groups. It is found that the relation cannot be used to accurately predict the behaviour of the experiments where the adherends deform plastically. This indicates that the stress-elongation relation has limited applicability.

    Meso-mechanical modeling of thin adhesive layers2004In: The 15th European Conference on Fracture, 2004Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A meso-mechanical finite element model for a thin adhesive layer is developed. The model is calibrated to experimental results where the adhesive layer is loaded in monotonically increasing peel or shear, cf. Andersson and Stigh [1] and Alfredsson et al. [2], and to an in situ SEM study of the fracture process. The purpose of the meso-mechanical finite element model is to facilitate the development of constitutive laws for adhesive layers.

    Ideas developed by Needleman [3], where structural continuum elements are bonded by cohesive elements are used as a basis for the finite element mesh. This thus enables micro cracks to propagate along the finite element boundaries.

    The simulations are found to be in good agreement with the experiments. The model is also capable of reproducing realistically the deformation observed in both peel [1] and shear [2] experiments.

    Simulation of crack initiation and propagation in an adhesive layer using a mesomechanical model: Polymer Composite Materials for Wind Power Turbines2006In: the 27th Risö International Symposium on Material Science, Riso National Laboratory , 2006, p. 315-320Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A finite element modle of a double cantilever beam specimen is developed. The adherents are modeled using plane strain elastic continuum elements. Furthermore, the adhesive is modeled using a mesomechanical modeling teqnique wich allows for simulation of initiation and prognationb of micro-cracks. This enables the modelling of entire process of degradation and fracture of the adhesive layer. The purpose of the present study is to compare the stress-deformation behavior in an idealized peel loading to the behavior in a double cantilever beam (DCB) specimen where the adhesive layer is deformed wilt a slight gradient along the layer. Previously performed experiments and simulations of the RVE are used as a compariosn to the simulated results.

    The stress-elongation relation for an adhesive layer loaded in peel using equilibrium of energetic forces2004In: International Journal of Solids and Structures, ISSN 0020-7683, E-ISSN 1879-2146, Vol. 41, no 2, p. 413-434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An experimental method to determine the stress–elongation relation for a thin adhesive layer loaded in peel is presented. The method is based on equilibrium of the energetic forces acting on a DCB-specimen. These energetic forces are identified to be associated with the geometrical positions of the acting loads and the start of the adhesive layer. The first energetic force is shown to be given by the product of the force and the rotation of the loading point. The second energetic force is shown to be given by the area under the stress–elongation curve for the adhesive layer. Using equilibrium of these energetic forces, the shape of the stress–elongation curve is determined. A test set-up is developed to facilitate the experiments. Special consideration is given to the accuracy of the measurement of the elongation of the adhesive. Results from two sets of experiments with slightly varying geometry are presented. The main result is that the stress–elongation relation can be described by a curve divided into three parts; initially the stress increases proportionally to the elongation. This corresponds to a linear elastic behaviour of the layer. The next part is given by a constant limiting stress. The curve ends with a parabolically softening part. After this point, a crack has been initiated in the adhesive. The experimental results are first compared to an asymptotic analysis using linear elastic fracture mechanics. This shows that the new method to evaluate the fracture energy gives consistent results. The experiments are also simulated using the measured stress–elongation law. Good agreement with the experiments is achieved which further validates the method. The fracture energy and the maximum peel stress are found to agree well within each set of experiments. Some variation is found between the two sets. This is accredited to differences in fracture initiation

    Avvaktande AJAX- anrop: En avlastningsteknik för 3G-nätet2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den ökade användningen av nätuppkopplade mobilapplikationer har resulterat i en överbelastning i 3G-nätet. Förslag för att avlasta nätet har bland annat varit genom alternativa uppkopplingar, vilket innebär en uppoffring av 3G-nätets tillgänglighet. Detta leder till frågor om andra avlastningsmetoder. Arbetets målsättning var att se hur en applikations datatrafik påverkas av att klassiska intervallanrop ersätts av avvaktande AJAX-anrop. Detta görs genom att implementera respektive anropsmetod i två identiska alfapetapplikationer. Mätdata erhölls genom att låta användare spela längre omgångar av respektive applikation, vilket även genererar realistiska uppdateringar. Resultaten visar att den klientgenererade bandbreddskonsumtionen minskas vid användning av avvaktande AJAX-anrop. Detta gör den, i kontrast med klassiska intervallanrop, till en möjlig avlastningsmetod.

    Databaslagring av tredimensionella datorspelsobjekt i realtid2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    För att enbart kunna lagra ett tredimensionellt objekt i en databas krävs inte en väldigt optimerad databasdesign. Men beroende på användningsområdet av databasen kan det krävas stora optimeringar för just detta. I jämförelse med ett dataspel som har en framerate över 30 fps (uppdateringar per sekund) så är en databas väldigt långsam. Eftersom att databasen sett ur ett spels perspektiv tar lång tid på sig att svara när man frågar den något kommer detta att innebära stora problem när man försöker kombinera de två. Det finns dock saker man kan göra för att öka prestanda på en databas, exempelvis att optimera själva frågorna till databasen. Men framför allt kan man optimera själva databasdesignen. Självklart kan man utveckla spelet så att det inte nödvändigtvis behöver ha kontakt med databasen i varje uppdatering. Detta är något som denna rapport kommer att gå in på djupet med och då läggs större vikt på databassidan än på spelsidan.

    Databasteknologier i svenska företag och organisationer och hinder för dess användning2000Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Databaser och databassystem är grunden för en stor del av de verksamheter som företag och organisationer sysslar med idag. Att utnyttja moderna databasteknologier kan medföra ett säkrare och smidigare system vilket i sin tur kan leda till konkurrens-fördelar för de som använder dem.

    I detta arbete undersöks i vilken omfattning ett antal olika moderna databasteknologier används inom företag och organisationer i Sverige och huruvida kostnaden är det största hindret för vidareutvecklingar av befintliga system.

    Inledningsvis beskrivs ett antal moderna databasteknologier för att ge en uppfattning om vilka möjligheter som finns på databasområdet. Därefter redovisas den under-sökning som gjorts med hjälp av telefonintervju som metod för att samla in material.

    Resultatet visar att vissa teknologier, som exempelvis databaser kopplade mot Internet, utnyttjas och i stor utsträckning kommer att användas i ännu högre grad i framtiden. Av undersökningen framkom ett flertal olika hinder för utveckling av databassystem där kostnaden endast är ett av dessa.

    Skyltfönstrens betydelse för konsumenter: Är skyltfönster någonting som har stor påverkan på konsumenternasamt påverkas de generellt av skyltningen?2009Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Butikernas exteriöra miljöer, med fokus på exponeringsfönstren, har som uppgift att visa upp produkter och att påverka kunden inför dennes eventuella inköp genom att upplysa, ge inspiration och skapa köplust. Butikens skyltfönster ska visa sortimentet på ett optimalt och tilldragande sätt för att locka och få konsumenterna att stanna upp. Intresse skapas utanför butiken och för att snabbt nå kunderna ska det finnas en bra fönsterskyltning vilket förmedlar konceptet och genererar ökad trafik i butiken. Exteriör miljö innefattar allt som finns utanför butiken där av skyltfönstret, som vi valt att fokusera på i vår undersökning. För många butiker är skyltfönstret butikens främsta marknadsföringsverktyg och skyltfönstret ska ge försmak på vad som finns inne i butiken och påverka konsumenterna genom att skapa en nyfikenhet och mersmak. Det finns mycket i butikens omkringliggande miljöer som kan få konsumenternas uppmärksamhet såsom grannbutikernas skyltfönster, gatulivet och fordon. Därför är det angeläget att butikerna har skyltfönster som fångar upp och tilltalar konsumenternas uppmärksamhet. Detta för att butikerna vidare ska ha möjligheten att påverka och inspirera konsumenterna till att genomföra ett inköp, planerat som oplanerat.

     

    Uppsatsens undersökning grundar sig på butikens skyltfönster och vad konsumenter lägger störst vikt vid gällande skyltning. Vi ska med vår uppsats försöka få fram hur stor påverkan exponeringen i butikernas fönster har och utgå från vad konsumenterna själva svarar på bland annat, vad de påverkas av generellt när det gäller skyltfönster samt vad de mest påverkas av. Finns det en generell uppfattning eller skiljer sig konsumenternas åsikter åt? 

     

    För att ta reda på detta ska konsumenter inom olika målgrupper intervjuas och det insamlade materialet ska sedan sammanställas och presenteras.

     

    Vår uppsats bygger både på en kvalitativ undersökningsmetod med antydningar av kvantitativ metod, detta anser vi har varit bra då vi kunnat få fram relevant information till vår undersökning.

     

    De första slutsatserna som vi fick fram av undersökningen, var att det inte fanns en generell uppfattning om exponeringens påverkan, utan att åsikterna och inställningen om skyltfönster skiljde sig åt bland marknadens konsumenter.

    Project ABSS: Adhesive bonding of stainless steels2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report aims to increase the scientific knowledge about long-term prospects for the adhesive and adhesive joints for bonding of stainless steels. The effects of water, temperature and chemicals on the adhesive and adhesive joints are investigated. Stainless steel plates are pretreated with a primer and isopropanol, there after joined together with single lap modeling. The strength of the joint is tested with a tensile test and additionally a watertightness test is performed to determine if the joints are watertight.

    For this project three versions of stainless steels is used and two different technologies of two- part adhesives, silicone and silane-modified polymer and one technology of tape, a double coated acrylic foam tape are tested.

    The result shows that all the adhesives fails cohesively and that tape fails partly adhesively. Result shows that all tests are affected by water, temperature and chemicals on different levels but tape is affected the most with a minimum of 40% loss in shear strength. Watertightness test shows that aged tape joints are not watertight. The polymer shows no signs of decreasing in shear strength and is watertight, but does become more viscous by aging.

    The report shows that a possible combination of adhesive and pretreatment that can withstand the effects of water, temperature and chemicals is found. The polymer presents a possibility to bond stainless steel with a simple pretreatment. Tape didn’t pass the test in a suitable way but presents opportunities if a sufficient pretreatment can be found.

    Webbhandel: kunden som användare2000Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    När en webbhandelsapplikation ska utvecklas påverkas produktleverantörens kunder, eftersom de måste förändra sina beställningsrutiner. Anställda hos kunden kommer därmed att bli systemanvändare. Syftet med den här rapporten är att undersöka om detta förhållande påverkar systemutvecklingsprocessen. Först genomfördes en litteraturstudie, därefter intervjuades fem personer, vilka samtliga arbetar med att utveckla webbapplikationer åt produktleverantörer.

    För att ett datasystem ska erhålla hög acceptans krävs användarmedverkan och eftersom anställda hos kunden blir systemanvändare vid webbhandel, är det viktigt att de får delta i utvecklingsprocessen. När anställda hos kunden ska ingå i utvecklingsprocessen kommer tidsåtgången att öka, vilket medför att kostnaderna för webbhandelsapplikationen ökar. Tidsåtgången ökar, eftersom det kan vara svårt att identifiera potentiella kunder, samt att fler användare involveras, vilket leder till att fler synpunkter ska behandlas och därmed tar det längre tid än traditionell systemutveckling. Produktleverantören avgör vilka kunder som får delta i systemutvecklingsprocessen. Vanligtvis samlas synpunkter in från anställda hos kund, genom intervjuer, deltagande i konceptmodelleringar eller prototyputvärderingar.

    Styrningens påverkan på butikschefers motivation2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Since the 1990s, the major clothing companies have taken an increasingly large market share. This has led to that the clothing industry has become more centralized. Because of this, the store manager who has primary responsibility for the store is more guided in their work. The store manager has goals to relate to while he or she is guided in their actions to achieve their goals.

    Purpose: The aim is that through interviews provide an understanding of how the store managers' motivation is influenced by the designed control system and explain what motivators store managers find most motivating in their work.

    Implementation: The study was conducted by six semi-structured interviews with store managers and is thus a qualitative approach. This methodology allows for the study of store managers in more depth. The interviews have transcribed and then analyzed using the theoretical framework of the study. The four clothing companies in the study all have a turnover of over 1 billion annually and uses a centralized control.

    Outcome: Store managers in the study pronounce that their goals must be perceived as fair to be motivating. It is also important to the long-term budgetary objective, combined with short-term goals, as several goals at work are perceived as positive and the long term goal does not feel as distant. Responsibility is an important part of the work, however more responsibility does not always lead to higher motivation and therefore store managers' cases should be at a reasonable level. Feedback is something that store managers need regularly. It is important that feedback not only contains information about the results, but they also want to get a directive on how they can change the work for the better.

    Kvinnors upplevelser under det första året efter en hjärtinfarkt.: En litteraturstudie2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The time from symptoms to treatment of women is generally longer because of the ambiguoussymptoms, the woman waits longer before seeking care compared with men. This may be thereason why the woman denies their symptoms when she doesn’t think there is somethingserious, such as a heart attack. The aim of this study is to illustrate women's experiencesduring the first year after an acute myocardial infarction. The chosen method is a literaturebasedstudy of quantitative and qualitative research results which were analyzed and resultedin four themes. The results show that the woman needs support from various instances andpeople in their surroundings. The support given by family and relatives indicates by theinformants to be important, as well as support from the rest of the surroundings such ascolleagues, neighbors, or similar are seen as important. The women also expressed a greatneed for support from health care professionals, which they perceive as poor. The results alsoshow that women use a denial coping strategy in hopes for faster recovery. This denial mayconstitute a risk to the woman's relationships, as well as for the woman's self-esteem, which inturn can contribute to anxiety and depressions.
