    A founder's heritage: the development of organizational identity2019Ingår i: Journal of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 0827-6331, E-ISSN 2169-2610, Vol. 31, nr 1, s. 73-95Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to understand how a former family firm strategically makes use of the founder's legacy to preserve its organizational identity. Following a single case study approach, it draws on rich empirical material from semi-structured interviews and extensive archival data. We show how central organizational activities are affected by a founder's heritage long after the formal exit has taken place, illustrating the central, enduring, and distinctive elements of organizational identity a founder has. Regardless of ownership forms, the family company founder's legacy is used to legitimize new owners and maintain the organization's identity. However, centripetal moves complicate the preservation of the organizational identity, whereas a high focus on value leveraging in another ownership form opens up for centrifugal approaches which strengthen the entrepreneurial dimension of organizational identity.

    Austerity and public sector trade union power: Before and after the crisis2019Ingår i: European journal of industrial relations, ISSN 0959-6801, E-ISSN 1461-7129, Vol. 25, nr 2, s. 129-145Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We use a power resources approach to examine the effects of the 2008-2009 financial and economic crisis on public sector trade union power in Germany, Spain, Sweden and the UK, comparing structural, organizational, institutional, societal and political power resources before and after the crisis. Unions' power resources have (at least temporarily) weakened in Spain, with a similar but less pronounced trend in the UK; whereas in Sweden and Germany, one can detect ambiguous but slightly positive signals, which reflect neither the crisis nor opposition to austerity. As well as structural, organizational and institutional power resources, societal and political resources are decisive for public sector trade unions.

    Building traits for organizational resilience through balancing organizational structures2019Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 35, nr 1, s. 36-45Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and explains how balancing organizational structures can build traits for organizational resilience. Organizational resilience is a holistic and complex concept. In this paper, we move beyond focusing on sudden and disruptive events in favour of anticipating the unexpected in daily organizing. Organizational resilience is understood here as building traits of risk awareness, preference for cooperation, agility and improvisation and is analysed by means of a longitudinal qualitative case study. The paper contributes to the field by showing how balancing organizational structures can foster organizational resilience traits. We show that power distribution and normative control can create preparedness for unexpected events and foster action orientation at the same time as supporting organizational alignment.

    Collaborative Public Management: Coordinated Value Propositions among Public Service Organisations2019Ingår i: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing from collaborative public management, this article seeks to contribute topublic service logic by focusing on what precedes the public service user’s realizationof value: the value proposition. A new care model for elderly people with multiplechronic diseases shows that coordinators with an inter-organizational mission, ver-tical and horizontal supporting structures, trust established through relationships,and recognition of service systems’embeddedness in social systems are pivotal forthe ability of public service organizations to develop coordinated value propositions.The contribution to policy and practice is an increased understanding of a coherent,rather than fragmented, welfare system for users/citizens.

    Composition-based view of the firm as a promising approach to studying small businesses2019Ingår i: Produção, ISSN 0103-6513, E-ISSN 1980-5411, Vol. 29, artikel-id e20180022Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Paper aims

    Extant Literature based on the resource-based view (RBV) of the firm suggests that it can be used to study organizations of all types and sizes. In essence, the RBV argues that firms that possess rare, non-imitable, valuable, unique, and non-substitutable resources will outperform firms that do not possess such resources. This study questions the applicability of this assumption to smaller businesses, which are likely to have common resources readily available in the market rather than rare, non-imitable, non-substitutable, unique, or valuable resources. The purpose of this study is to discuss whether the composition-based view (CBV) of the firm offers a more promising approach than the RBV to studying small businesses.

    Originality

    This study is one of the first to tentatively suggest a change in theoretical approach when studying small businesses.

    Research method

    A structured critical review approach is taken.

    Main findings

    The findings reveal that the CBV offers a more promising and appropriate theoretical framework than the RBV for research on small businesses, whereas the RBV is better suited to research on larger firms.

    Implications for theory and practice

    Future studies can use RBV and CBV to study large and small businesses, respectively.

    Entrepreneurial orientation in firms with a social mission - a mixed-methods approach2019Ingår i: Cogent Business & Management, ISSN 2331-1975, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 1-25, artikel-id 1602016Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores entrepreneurial orientation (EO) in Finnish social enterprises in a social context using a mixed-methods approach. As a result, we propose that the generic dimensions of EO apply in a social context with minor refinements but suggest an additional dimension of persistence. The social enterprises take substantial financial risks although carefully avoid anything that may jeopardise the firms’ social impact. They exhibit highly innovative behaviour when developing new ways to serve the social purpose as well as when finding new ways to generate income. Furthermore, these enterprises exhibit remarkable persistence in adhering to a course of action despite their experienced difficulties.

    How Developed-Country Firms Make Standardization/Transfer and Adaptations Decisions in Relation to their Developing-Host-Country Operations?2019Ingår i: Journal of East-West Business, ISSN 1066-9868, E-ISSN 1528-6959, Vol. 25, nr 2, s. 107-143Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Factors influencing firms’ standardization and adaptations decisions tend to be treated as static isolated entities in the extant literature. Further, the focus is predominantly on Western MNCs and product development or marketing functions with manufacturing firms and the emerging/developing country perspective underrepresented. We explore factors, as well as their interrelations that determine standardization and adaptations decisions when a developed country manufacturing firm establishes operations in a developing country. Purposefully, Italian manufacturing firms with operations in Vietnam are examined. We identify functions, processes, and practices that are standardized/transferred and those that are adapted. A theoretical model is developed based on the findings.

    Intellectual Capital and Innovation for Sustainable Smart Cities: The Case of N-Tuple of Helices2019Ingår i: Intellectual Capital Management as a Driver of Sustainability: Perspectives for Organizations and Society / [ed] Florinda Matos, Valter Vairinhos, Paulo Maurício Selig, Leif Edvinsson, Springer, 2019, s. 49-66Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this chapter is to explore and discuss, in the context of Smart Cities (SC), the relations between three concepts: Intellectual Capital (IC), Innovation Process (IP) and Sustainability (S). It is important to note that, in this context, the concept of IC refers to Smart Cities Intellectual Capital (SCIC), which is characterised by four components (Human Capital, Process Capital, Renewal Capital, Clients Capital), also used for Nations IC. The Innovation analysis considers two models: the first one expresses the dependencies and limits of innovation, resulting from physical limitations such as city area and city population; and the second one is the N-Tuple of Helices model. The concept of Smart City will be modelled as a living being capable of rational behaviour, knowledge production, and intellectual activity.

    Knowledge creation in knowledge-intensive small and medium-sized enterprises2019Ingår i: International Journal of Knowledge-Based Development, ISSN 2040-4468, E-ISSN 2040-4476, Vol. 10, nr 1, s. 75-94Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper presents insights into the knowledge creation process in three Icelandic knowledge-intensive small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Data were obtained through a case study methodology. The findings indicate that the three knowledge-intensive companies use complex, non-routine knowledge to deal with complex problems. Often, practical problems are a starting point for new ideas and knowledge development. Brainstorming, collaboration, teamwork, informal and formal gathering and other knowledge creation activities are used in the knowledge creating process. The companies showed many characteristics of SMEs with little formal structure and strategies. The subject of knowledge creation has received little attention in the literature. Thus, the study responds to this situation by giving insights into the knowledge creation processes in knowledge-intensive SMEs.

    Mapping knowledge risks: towards a better understanding of knowledge management2019Ingår i: Knowledge Management Research & Practice, ISSN 1477-8238, E-ISSN 1477-8246, Vol. 17, nr 1, s. 1-13Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This conceptual paper aims to identify, present, and analyze potential knowledge risks organizations might face. With the growing complexity of organizational environments and the plethora of new knowledge risks emerging, this critical but under-researched field of knowledge management (KM) deserves closer attention. The study is based on a critical analysis of the extant literature devoted to knowledge risks, discusses potential outcomes of these risks and proposes a concept map of knowledge risks. The map shows a number of knowledge risks organizations should be aware of. Knowledge risks can be assigned to three categories: human, technological and operational. The research is the first systematic and comprehensive review of knowledge risks at the organizational level. By aggregating and consolidating the knowledge risks covered, the study does not only provide a knowledge risk taxonomy but also promising directions for future research. The study also contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of KM.

    Resource orchestration of firm-specific human capital and firm performance: the role of collaborative human resource management and entrepreneurial orientation2019Ingår i: International Journal of Human Resource Management, ISSN 0958-5192, E-ISSN 1466-4399Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Firm-specific human capital (HC) is widely recognised as the most important resource for superior firm performance. Contemporary literature on the resource-based view (RBV) and resource orchestration has stressed the importance of organising resources, such as firmspecific HC, in order to fully exploit them. However, companies with idiosyncratic resources cannot rely on established resource exploitation practices, making the exploitation of firmspecific HC a complex issue. Nevertheless, few studies have empirically examined how to orchestrate firm-specific HC. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine how resource orchestration – operationalised as collaborative human resource management (CHRM) and entrepreneurial orientation (EO) both individually and combined – moderates the relationship between firm-specific HC and firm performance. Based on a sample of 151 Swedish manufacturing firms, the findings demonstrate that CHRM and EO do not independently influence the relationship between firm-specific HC and performance. However, firms with firm-specific HC benefit from either being highly entrepreneurial and relying on CHRM or being non-entrepreneurial and not focusing on CHRM; they perform worst if they are entrepreneurial without using CHRM. Whereas previous RBV-studies on resource exploitation have mainly stressed that HC has to be exploited, this study contributes to the RBV by examining how firm-specific HC should be exploited.

    Skills Development Practices and Engineer Turnover: Insights Into Tunisian IT Services Companies2019Ingår i: Handbook of Research on Entrepreneurial Leadership and Competitive Strategy in Family Business / [ed] José Manuel Saiz-Álvarez, Jesús Manuel Palma-Ruiz, IGI Global, 2019, s. 42-62Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates the skills development practices and their relationship with engineer turnover in IT services companies (henceforth ITSC) from Tunisia. It presents a qualitative analysis of data that derived from a number of interviews conducted with human resource managers of these companies. Based on the findings, four human resources management (HRM) practices were identified that seemingly contribute to skills development in the firms investigated, which are recruitment, training, inter-project mobility, inter-firm cooperation. The findings indicate that these practices can also reduce engineer turnover rates. The chapter provides fresh insights into HRM practices of Tunisian companies, which has not attracted much attention yet.

    Tackling Lack of Motivation in Aspirational Analytics Companies: SME Examples from the Manufacturing Industry2019Ingår i: International Journal of Business Intelligence Research, ISSN 1947-3591, E-ISSN 1947-3605, Vol. 10, nr 1Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Establishing business intelligence analytics (BIA) in small- and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises is a pervasive problem. SME’s - the majority of businesses - play an important role in creating jobs, but research is primarily focused on large corporations. The authors worked with small manufacturing companies at the aspirational capability level but found that their motivation to introduce BIA was low. They had many business challenges but perceived the obstacles (primarily cost and effort) as too great, and their priorities were with operational issues. A two-phase approach based on a well-known analytics maturity model was devised to help raise company motivation. The article describes three studies in different companies using variations of the approach. Comparative analysis of the cases shows that demonstrating a clear path to improved functional efficiency is key to improving motivation, and that simple, easy to learn tools can provide these insights at little cost.

    The Appropriation of Blockchain for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises2019Ingår i: Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1000-324X, E-ISSN 2183-0606, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 26-45Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to provide a conceptual framework for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to evaluate the appropriation of blockchain technology for their business needs and challenges. This conceptual framework aims to respond to the problem of increasing speculations surrounding the blockchain that is considered to be an absolute and innovative solution to many business related problems. However, this argument might not be realistic for SMEs despite this assumption. The main argument of the article is that SMEs should be skeptical while evaluating the appropriation of this technology for their business needs and they should follow a tailored approach whilst adopting it. Otherwise, the likelihood is high that a short-term and unstructured knowledge management process to adopt blockchain will end up with a waste of resources. The present paper conceptualizes an appropriation framework within nine factors namely, reduction of costs, internalization, digital representation of assets, unalterable data recording, network size, transparent and synchronized ledger, scalability, fair trade, and financing. Given the field’s infancy state of development, the paper relies on a qualitative document analysis involving SME literature and extant literature and white papers of blockchain applications.

    The impact of openness on innovation in SMEs2019Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1363-9196, E-ISSN 1757-5877, Vol. 23, nr 1, artikel-id 1950003Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of modes of open innovation in smaller companies is still in the development phase. This study responds to this situation and, drawing upon a data set from 4,679 Turkish small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), explores the influence of inbound open innovation and coupled open innovation on marketing innovation as well as process and organisational innovation in SMEs. Results reveal major differences between small and medium-sized Turkish enterprises with regard to both marketing innovation as well as process and organisational innovation. While inbound open innovation positively influences both, marketing as well as process and organisational innovation, the effects for small-sized enterprises are even higher than for medium-sized ones. Coupled open innovation positively influences both innovation outcomes as well, although the effects for medium-sized enterprises are significantly higher than for smaller ones.

    Investments in sustainable practices, such as green innovations are expected to increase both an organization’s long-term survival and its operational performance. Sustainable development of organizations is driven by organizations’ ability to continuously exploit their base of or access to intellectual capital (IC)/knowledge. Thus, organizations of each kind need to integrate the management of IC/knowledge into their overall strategic efforts. Taking the relevance of IC management for organizations’ sustainability and growth intents, the visualization of IC should be a critical component of organizations’ IC management. Against this background, the purpose of this chapter is to explore and discuss the benefits of IC visualization for sustainable development of organizations. More precisely, the focus is on IC visualization for green innovation activities in smaller companies. Smaller firms have been chosen because the resource constraints create unique challenges for both sustainability and growth. Based on a theoretical discussion a set of guidelines for improving green innovations in SMEs taking into account their IC is proposed.

    A model for understanding the process of firm establishment in foreign loosely-structured emerging markets2018Ingår i: Journal for International Business and Entrepreneurship Development, ISSN 1549-9324, E-ISSN 1747-6763, Vol. 11, nr 4, s. 327-342Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Our understanding of the process of firm establishment in foreign markets is relatively limited especially in relation to host-developing and host-emerging markets. The market-specific and context-driven nature of the firm establishment process is largely overlooked in the literature. Against this background, we aim to chart the establishment process of a Spanish telecommunication firm, Telefonica, in Brazil and Chile by applying the 'four stage firm establishment process model in foreign markets' (Abraha, 1994). We identify strategic responses crafted by Telefonica to overcome the challenges during its establishment process. We revise Abraha's model in view of the findings and conclude with implications for managerial practices.

    A New Professional Landscape: Entangled Institutional Logics in Two Swedish Welfare Professions2018Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 8, nr 3, s. 91-109Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research has made three parallel but incompatible observations on the contemporary development of welfare professions: loss of professional autonomy, hybridization, and maintained autonomy.  Yet,  research  providing  contextual  understanding  of  the  simultaneous  occurrence  of  these three observations is lacking. The aim of this theoretical paper is to identify and explain seemingly  contradictory  coexisting  features  of  modern  welfare  professions  through  a  compre-hensive reading of current literature on the health care and teaching professions in Sweden. The literature  has  demonstrated  entangled  institutional  logics,  in  which  simultaneous  but  differing  effects occur, thereby developing a new professional landscape.

    A resource-based model of organizational resilience2018Ingår i: The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability / [ed] Stefan Tengblad, Margareta Oudhuis, Singapore: Springer, 2018, s. 39-54Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    A typology of culture-oriented human resource management systems2018Ingår i: International Journal of Sustainable Strategic Management (IJSSM), ISSN 1753-3600, E-ISSN 1753-3619, Vol. 6, nr 2, s. 167-187Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Organisational culture has repeatedly been reported as the vehiclefor organisational change, but there is still a lack of research that investigatesthe impact of HRM on organisational culture which is attributed tothe absence of comprehensive HRM frameworks. Based on a sample of161 German-speaking enterprises in Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland,this study responds to this gap by developing, operationalising and evaluating atypology of culture-oriented HRM systems and their effects on organisationalculture. The results demonstrate that HRM plays a crucial role in developingand shaping an organisational culture in general and that each of the developedHRM system, namely employee-, innovation-, profession and task-orientedfosters the development and/or change of a specific organisational culture inparticular.

    BP and Deepwater Horizon: A catastrophe from a resilience perspective2018Ingår i: The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability / [ed] Stefan Tengblad, Margareta Oudhuis, Singapore: Springer, 2018, s. 71-87Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter summarizes the BP-Deepwater Horizon accident 2010 in the Mexican Gulf, which caused 11 deaths and the largest oil spill in history. The chapter builds on secondary sources and a resilience analysis is made using the theoretical framework developed in the book. It is described what the main causes of the accident were and the events that took place before, under and after the

    accident. The resilience analysis clearly shows that maintaining time limits and budget was made at the expense of reliability and safety, and that unnecessary risks were taken in order to improve project economy. The end results were one of the most costly human made disasters in the history (over 50 billion USD).

    Abstract [sv]

    Komplexa organisationer är vanligen svåra att styra – och det gäller särskilt organisationer med starkt professionaliserade aktörer. Det beror på flera faktorer: att det är svårt att överblicka handlingars konsekvenser i sådana organisationer, att det inte är självklart att styrimpulser efterföljs eller att verksamhetens viktigaste procedurer ens går att följa upp. Dessutom kan det som sker på en hierarkisk nivå sakna koppling till det som händer på en annan – och det gäller särskilt for kärnverksamhet i relation till ledning.

    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.

    Co-optation as a response to competing institutional logics: Professionals and managers in healthcare2018Ingår i: Journal of Professions and Organization, ISSN 2051-8803, E-ISSN 2051-8811, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 71-87Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Do public sector industrial relations challenge the Swedish model?2018Ingår i: Labor history, ISSN 0023-656X, E-ISSN 1469-9702, Vol. 59, nr 1, s. 87-104Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses recent developments in public sector labour relations in Sweden from a historical, gender and power relations perspective. The main question is whether these trends challenge the established Swedish industrial relations system. Our point of departure - yet chronologically also the point of arrival - is the Swedish Municipal Workers' Union, Kommunal's, exit from the coordinated wage setting model within the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (Landsorganisationen, LO) in 2015/2016. The immediate reason was that Kommunal, representing one-third of the LO members, including many low-paid women, turned down the LO's proposal on a general wage increase for low-wage groups. Instead, Kommunal urged to upgrade wages for a specific member group, the auxiliary nurses. This broke an almost uninterrupted 20-year-long period of labour market cooperation and coordination that was introduced in 1997 through the so-called Industry Agreement (Industriavtalet). This agreement was launched in the wake of the deep financial crisis in the early 1990s, and the neoliberal move towards a complete decentralization of pay negotiations. How should this move by Kommunal be interpreted? Why, and when, has the centralized system become a straitjacket for Kommunal, when for decades it seemingly was a precondition for both private and public union strength?

    Driving Factors for Converting Teaching-Oriented Universities Into Entrepreneurial Universities: A Turkish Case Study2018Ingår i: International Journal of Applied Behavioral Economics (IJABE), ISSN 2160-9802, Vol. 7, nr 3, s. 34-53Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Exploring knowledge management practices in third-party logistics service providers2018Ingår i: Vine: The Journal of Information and Knowledge Management Systems, ISSN 0305-5728, E-ISSN 1474-1032, Vol. 48, nr 2, s. 162-177Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The aim of this paper is to explore knowledge management (KM) practices implemented by third-party logistics service companies (3PLs) and the main barriers slowing down the adoption of such practices.

    Design/methodology/approach – The methodological approach used in this paper is based on a multiple case study analysis involving a set of 3PLs operating in Italy and Sweden.

    Findings – In spite of some adoption, our findings suggest that 3PLs are not sufficiently realizing the full potential of KM. Our evidence also indicates that there is a link between the type of 3PL company (in terms of the breadth and complexity of the services supplied) and the sophistication of KM tools adopted.

    Research limitations/implications – From a practical point of view, the findings may help the management of 3PL companies to take a more strategic approach to KM and thus its contribution to the firms´ overall goals. Additionally, it is critical to conduct a careful analysis of current and future KM needs to identify the most suitable KM solutions linked to the specific characteristics of the business in which 3PLs operate. From a research point of view, further research should focus on the validation of the link between the number and sophistication of KM tools used and the breadth of services supplied. Further research should also focus on exploring how KM can support 3PL companies in enhancing their performance.

    Originality/value – This study provides fresh insights into the adoption of KM practices in logistics service organizations. The findings advance the limited body of knowledge regarding this topic and contribute to the further development of the study of KM.

    Exploring the transition phase in offshore outsourcing: Decision making amidst knowledge at risk2018Ingår i: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We explore the transition phase in information system (IS) offshore outsourcing, focusing on ongoing decisions made in a client-vendor arrangement and the implications these decisions have for knowledge at risk. Drawing on time-compression and knowledge at risk literatures we argue that firms will need to make ongoing transitional decisions over time as knowledge intensive work is increasingly handed over from client to vendor. We conduct a longitudinal exploratory case study of a strategic development project transitioned from a European client to a company in India over a 4-year period. Analysis indicates: (1) four distinct phases of the transition: penetration, embedment, ramp-up and stabilization; (2) how transitional decisions and knowledge at risk vary across these phases. Results from the longitudinal approach have implications not only for understanding the ‘what’ and ‘how’ in IS offshore outsourcing but also for a deeper insight into the ‘when’ question.

    Financial Resilience: The Role of Financial Balance, Profitability, and Ownership2018Ingår i: The Resilience Framework: Organizing for Sustained Viability / [ed] Stefan Tengblad, Margareta Oudhuis, Singapore: Springer, 2018, s. 111-131Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on financial resilience, which is an important aspect of the organizational resilience framework presented in Chap.  3. Financial resilience includes the balance between assets and debts and also resources like profitability, liquidity and ownership structure. The financial resilience of six of the largest Swedish companies is analyzed in the chapter. The selection includes companies with strong, average, and weak financial resilience, which enables us to contrast different companies to each other. The data is mainly collected from annual reports. The chapter concludes that it is necessary to have a profitable core operation to achieve strong financial resilience, but it is also important to have strong and long-term-oriented owners who retain a part of the profit in the companies as a buffer for more challenging times.

    Abstract [en]

    The resilient organization has the important capability of creating high reliability. In health care, professionals deal with major challenges in terms of new working methods. The chapter describes the introduction of a standardized working method in hospitals, utilizing Lean-oriented work processes. That is different from nurses’ and physicians’ traditional and flexible way of working. These differences in approaches are the subject of the study. The question is: How can followership create and maintain high reliability and resilience in health care? A comparative case study was performed using interviews and steering documents. To maintain and create high reliability, social resources such as followership are important. Followers’ ability to improve, cooperate, and learn turned out to be important characteristics. Organizational resilience depends on these professionals’ ability to manage change.
