Management control, apathy and blurring of university borders

2008 (English)In: Inspired by knowledge in organisations: Essays in honor of professor Karl-Erik Sveiby on his 60th birthday 29th June 2008, Helsingfors: Svenska handelshögskolan , 2008, p. 16-25Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

When university borders blur and competition increases, universities have to be alert. There is considerable potential for improving management control in universities in order to realise the wishful thinking of a collaborative climate and a knowledge sharing organisation where playfulness, experiments, reflexivity and constant discussions on knowledge are held. Similar to leadership, the design of management control comprises values and norms. Although management control could encourage and mobilise individuals, it could also convey messages of apathy, disable a collaborative climate and hinder knowledge sharing and creation. In a university context there is a need for management practises that encourage the same respectfulness that Karl-Erik Sveiby demonstrates in his work on the Nhunggabarra culture in Australia and the same audaciousness that he demonstrates when he tests his theoretical ideas about knowledge sharing in practise.
