Increased profitability through integration : A case study of the consulting firm Sweco (English)
Abstract [sv]

Frågeställning:Med affärsidén som grund eftersträvar ledningen en större integration med omgivningen och mellan dotterbolagen för att konkurrera på marknaden. Hur jobbar Sweco med integration och vilka svårigheter finns?

Syfte: Syftet är att redogöra hur bra Swecos affärsidé är integrerad i bolaget.

Metod: Studien var av kvalitativ karaktär och baserades på sekundärdata i form av böcker och artiklar inom ämnet integration. Ett icke-slupmässigt urval användes för valet av respondenter.

Slutsats: Sweco visar på en bra integration mellan marknaden och det företaget erbjuder. Lönsamheten tyder på hög integration med omvärlden och internt i bolaget. Tendenser på motsatt önskad effekt till integration har uppnåtts genom sämre ekonomi och effektivitet i vissa projekt. Jäviga situationer kan uppstå när kontrollanten och de som ska kontrolleras sitter på samma företag dessutom kan en oönskad beroendeställning skapas för beställaren då Sweco används som enda konsult för projekteringen. Divisionsorganisationen kan motarbeta integrationen och några av Swecos anställda har inte förtroende för Swecos affärsidé.

Abstract [en]

Research questions: Using the business idea as a basis, the management seeks a higher integration with the environment and between its subsidiaries in order to better compete in the market. How does Sweco work with integration and what difficulties exist?

Purpose: The purpose is to describe how well integrated Sweco’s business idea is within the organization.

Method: This study used a qualitative research approach and was based on secondary data from books and articles on the topic of integration. A non random sample was used for the selection of respondents.

Conclusion: Sweco exhibits a good level of integration between its offerings and the market. The profitability indicates high integration, both internally and with the environment. There are some tendencies that can lead to negative development of integration resulting in reduced profits and lower efficiency in some projects. Biased situations can occur when the controller and his subordinates are working in the same company. Additionally, unwanted dependencies can arise when clients choose Sweco as the only consulting company for their projects. The divisionalized form can thwart the integration and some employees lack confidence in Sweco’s business idea.
