Abstract [en]

With the aim to help innovation researchers choose outlets for articles based on participat- ory and action research methods, this article describes and discusses publication patterns of action research. A bibliographic study of 33 innovation journals ranked 4, 3, 2, and 1 in the 2018 Academic Journal Guide is complemented by a case study of this journal, the Technology Innovation Management Review, as an example of an established open access journal in the field with a wider scope and target group. From these two studies, we learn that the overall trend is towards more publications of action research articles in a diversity of outlets. Indirectly, the study supports the general view that articles striving towards adding practical relevance to research are becoming more frequent. There is no support for the notion that more renowned and higher-ranked journals would be more hesitant to accept articles with action research methods. The study also notes that there are interesting outlets beside those highly ranked and indexed in more conventional ways. The conclusion reached is that we lack a clear answer to the question of what are the best outlets for those of us who are interested in both innovation and action research. Instead, the study invites us to reflect upon what kind of impact we want to have and then act accordingly.

Abstract [en]

In April (timreview.ca/issue/2019/april), we published the first of this pair of special issues on the theme of Action Research. This second special issue can be said to be both a prolongation of the first issue and an expansion of the scope of the first issue. The aim, however, is the same: to express the action research discussion in an accessible manner such that academics, industry, and the public sector can adopt the frameworks, models, and ideas presented by the authors.

(...)

Taken together, we notice some central themes present in the articles of this special issue. The main one, to us, is the idea of the researcher to be or become part of the team that work with the real-world problem the action and knowledge process is supposed to solve. It takes commitment to the cause as well as time in order to be- come embedded and continuously adapt. Thus, flexibil- ity is key. This logic contrasts with traditional ideas of scientific rigour and control, meaning that action re- searchers need complementary views on quality, ob- jectivity, and validity, which we hope we have provided through this special issue. These insights might help re- searchers to reach their ends, but they will not suffice at the practical end. Instead, through the accounts avail- able here, we become aware that action research efforts do not trump organizational power structures. Instead, analyzing the organization, how it is run, and who has the power to change are vital when paving the way for in- novations, whether they are developed through action research or not. Action research is thus nothing you should do on a whim. You should not to just plunge into the practice. Instead, you will do better if you study the water first and decide when, where, and how to jump.

Abstract [en]

Through associations evoked by the lyrics from Leonard Cohens song First we take Manhattan, the paper explore what public values are created in a co- creation processes between actors within a public organization and a coordinating researcher representing a university. Data for the paper comes from a project for researching collaborative innovation in a municipality as well as experiences made by the author in three interlinked roles as researcher, project manager and finally as process manager for sustainable development projects involving the university and public partners.

Four types of public values have been identified through the associative structuring approach. They are relational values, knowledge values, change values, and symbolic public values. The tension between these co-created public values reveal that existing organizational hierarchical power structures are ever present. Public values that correspond to dominating official agendas of the collaborating organizations are quite noticeable in the empirical account. Proof of the success of a formal collaboration between the university and its partners, are valued and asked for. Coordination thus favours constructions of implicit symbolic public values, where mediated symbols of the structures, processes and results appear as preferred outcomes.

The study thus mainly reveals public values associated with what is good for the people, but not so much what is valued by the people. Complementary practical contributions that more directly could be valued by the people, when and where researchers and public professionals build relations and knowledge in order to enhance the public organizations ability to deliver public value, are given less attention.

As a complementary contribution to method, the article introduces and discuss the pros and cons of associative structuring, that has been used in order to evoke an autoethnographic account of the researcher’s experiences of the collaboration.

Abstract [sv]

Arbetet som ligger till grund för den här rapporten har gjorts inom Samverkansprojektet vilket är ett forskningsprojekt som initierats som en del av Samhällskontraktet (SK) och dess delprocess Hållbar samhällsutveckling (HSU). Både SK och HSU är organisatoriska samverkansytor för Västerås stad, Eskilstuna kommun, Region Västmanland, Landstinget Sörmland och Mälardalens högskola.

Samverkansprojektet har pågått i tre år, mellan 2015 och 2017, i det gränsland som etablerats mellan akademin, våra offentliga samarbetsparter och invånarna, vilket förklarar titeln på rapporten. Vårt konkreta mål med forskningsprojektet har varit att ”utveckla modeller/begrepp som gör det lättare för våra intressenter att förstå de organisatoriska problem de står inför vad gäller att lösa samhällsproblemen de ansvarar för”.

För att nå målet har flera mindre studier men också andra aktiviteter genomförts. Våra resultat har successivt växt fram och de har också spritts, och fortsätter spridas, på kon­ferenser, seminarier och olika typer av möten likväl som i både akademiska och populära skrifter.

Våra resultat och erfarenheter presenteras även i denna rapports åtta bidrag, där vi med hjälp av skiftande perspektiv, modeller och begrepp resonerar kring hur samverkan bättre kan förstås och förbättras. Varje kapitel avslutas med rubriken ”Läs mer” där den som vill fördjupa sig i det som tagits upp ges tips om vidare läsning. Rapporten sätter punkt för forskningsprojektet genom att formulera lättillgängliga texter som bygger på olika delar av vårt forskande och samverkande arbete.

Formen har vi valt för att bidra till ett gemensamt reflekterande hos dig och dem som du vill prata om samverkan med. Istället för färdiga svar, som man ofta hittar som resultat eller slutsatser i mer traditionella rapporter, vill vi att rapporten ska fungera som ett stöd till ett gemensamt utforskande och konstruktionen av gemensamma svar. Att undra tillsammans över problem med hjälp av det vi tar upp i den här rapporten, innebär en jämställd process där var och en bidrar med sitt perspektiv. Rapporten kan på detta sätt ses som ett verktyg för dig som arbetar med samverkan, kanske främst i offentlig sektor.

Abstract [en]

This article, just like innovation processes, revolves around ideas; ideas that has to be instigated, developed and put to use before they become organizational and societal innovations. Innovation ideas are in this respect quite complex and contextual. At the same time, the symbol commonly used for depicting ideas is quite simple and generic - a light bulb. Even though we are satisfied with the current situation, we might ask ourselves how would a communicative idea symbol fit for innovation look like? Symbols are adopted through a process of social consent. In that perspective, it appears pointless to challenge current use in order to replace the light bulb. The aim of the article is though not thus. Instead, it is to start a research dialogue on current use of preferred symbols for organizational innovation. The article describes how ideas are developed at the rim of formal organizations before penetrating the boundary getting in; and secondly how ideas need to penetrate the boundary of the organization getting out at launch. Hence, innovation can be viewed as a process of developing ideas in order to penetrate membranes. The article suggests a new symbol for ideas as “enlightened paths on a black orb”

Abstract [en]

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present and develop models of educational approaches to entrepreneurship that can provide complementary analytical structures to better study, enact and reflect upon the role of entrepreneurship in higher education.

Design/methodology/approach

A general framework for entrepreneurship education is developed by using theory as well as practical experiences from the fields of business, engineering and pedagogy. The paper is mainly conceptual where the unfolding Swedish practice is used as contextual backdrop.

Findings

The FOR/IN/THROUGH/ABOUT (FITA) taxonomy is presented and used to develop three models of how to approach entrepreneurship in higher education depending on purpose. As there exists a didactical divide between entrepreneurial education for business and entrepreneurial approach to teaching and learning, educators and researchers ought to let their specific context influence the adoption of the taxonomy as well as the presented models.

Research limitations/implications

The differentiations suggested by the presented models can be used to both structure the designs and limit claims of future research. More heuristic research is called for.

Practical implications

The use of FITA in the designing of entrepreneurship education offers new opportunities for enhancing complementary student learning in higher education.

Social implications

The study suggests that any political or scholarly initiative must acknowledge the diversity of entrepreneurship education and chose different approaches depending on what is to be achieved.

Originality/value

The multidisciplinary approach has made it possible to present and create models that denote a common ground for a productive discussion on how to better understand and make use of entrepreneurship in higher education.

Abstract [en]

With collaborative innovation as main theoretical base the paper discusses current insights from an ongoing municipal project on how to organize for social sustainability. The research rests on a participatory design, where the main empirical material for this paper consists of interviews and discussions with a development projects group members and group managers. The study concludes that the project do not fulfil the requirements for collaborative innovation so far, but instead gives an example for how public organizations can create local coordination across structures. Reasons for this limited advance is, according to the themes of this study, a diverging understanding of organizational needs between organizational levels, lack of priority and support, influence from existing structures and, most vital, a demarcation to involve only personel from public organization at the core of the project. In all, the project has come to handle social sustainability as an organizational problem rather than a societal problem where many other actors more naturally would be involed. There are though advances that partly move into the direction of collaborative innovation, where the paper ends with some reflection upon how this can be achieved. From the process of analysing the paper also have used the division between outer flexibility and inner flexibility as well as verbal priority and action priority, which are presented as candidate theoretical contributions.
