Abstract [en]

Recent literature indicates that a majority of studies on R&D management control have

focused on performance measurement systems and that few studies have explored how

individual control systems operate collectively to influence the outcome of R&D

organizations. We adopt the idea that it is of importance to merge control systems, and we

draw upon levers of control to view control systems from a holistic viewpoint. We aim to

extend this research by to exploring how beliefs, boundary, diagnostic and interactive control

systems are used jointly to influence the outcome of R&D. The paper is based on a qualitative

within-case study of an industrial air-handling technology R&D firm in Sweden. We draw on

the levers of control framework developed by Simons (1995) to illustrate how management

control systems operate within an R&D context. We observed that management control

systems interact in an R&D organization and that it is this interaction that allows it to achieve

pre-set goals. We also found that R&D firm managers used various forms of control jointly to

attain a limitation in behaviour as well as continuous search for opportunities and new

possibilities by exploiting existing technologies and resources.
