    Doings in Strategic Entrepreneurship2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we study the doings of practitioners in established firms and how theydraw on practices in the opportunity- and advantage-seeking process. A processreferred to as strategic entrepreneurship (SE) by many scholars. SE is not a newphenomenon, thus it has been research in this area by scholars in the domain ofentrepreneurship as well as in strategic management. However it has only recently beenconceptualized into a construct of practice. A problem though is when trying to furtherconceptualize this research area, to learn more about the practice of SE, previousresearch has a tendency to ignore the actions of humans and the unit-of-analysis hasbeen on a level of the industry, firm and/or resources. Therefore, in this paper wesuggest an alternative unit-of-analysis that draws on social practice theory and theconcepts of practice, praxis and practitioners. Thus, incorporate more of human actionsin the SE-process.

    Exploring how R&D management control influences the outcome of R&D process: A case study of R&D Management Control in a Swedish R&D firm2014In: Nordic Accounting Conference 2014, Copenhagen, November 13-14, 2014, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    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.

    The Game2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the requirements that practitioners have on educators is to prepare students for their future professions. A task for educators is therefore to introduce teaching methods and procedures for students that encourage them to develop their analytical skills and ability to solve real-world business problems. In this paper, we introduce a pedagogical tool named ‘The Game’ to help educators with this task.

    The general pedagogical idea of ‘The Game’ is to create a learning environment which allows students to be actively engaged in their learning process. It was developed to reinforce the importance of intercultural collaboration and negotiation as well as allowing them to be able to reflect on business-behavior directly instead of using case-studies.

    The game is based on a market where students get to experience business undertakings. The game is designed for international master students (representing on average between 10-15 countries) but can be used in a monocultural setting as well. The game will allow them to get more insights into strategy, marketing, management, organization and pricing.

    Old Swedish Business in New International Clothes: Case Studies on the Management of Strategic Resources in Foreign-Acquired Swedish R&D firms2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Which conditions are needed for research and development firms to stay competitive? Such firms must continually develop new products and processes if they are to provide their customers with value, and equal, if not exceed, the offerings their competitors provide. Firms that lack sufficient innovation and creativity risk losing customers, their reputation, and their position in corporate structures and in their industries.

    Even worse, they may be forced to liquidate their assets, file for bankruptcy, merge with other divisions, or be sold. There are many possibilities, and few of them can be said to be positive for the firm, its owners, or its employees. However, this thesis tells the story of how a Sweden-based firm, which was divided and sold to foreign, multinational corporations, survived as three separate research and development firms in southern Sweden. It examines how these three firms (all working in air handling technology) built on their historic legacy and continued as significant players in their industry.

    The analysis takes a resource-based view in its examination of the firms’ competitive advantage derived from its resources and resource management. The examination is based on Jay Barney’s VRIN framework and Robert Simons’s Levers of Control framework. The analysis identifies and describes the firms’ technical, financial, human and relationship resources, and analyses whether these resources are strategic or complementary.It confirms previous research that finds research and development firms can stay competitive if they have strategic resources such as test facilities, employees with expertise and experience, and strong relationships with suppliers and customers. It also finds that complementary resources such as information technology contribute to the competitiveness of research and development firms.

    The contribution of this thesis to previous research is its analysis of the significant role management control has in managing the resources of research and development firms. The thesis develops a management control model for such firms – the Integrated Resource Management model – that has four alternatives resource management strategies. These strategies are: Bureaucratic Resource Management, Structured Resource Management, Flexible Resource Management, and Explorative Resource Management.

    To be accepted or rejected?: A discourse analysis of the prevailing accounting discourse2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to contribute to the debate on publish and perish, which is a phenomenon that, for a long time, has been a theme of discussion. This phenomenon has affected many academic disciplines (Miller et al. 2011), including accounting. It is described to be the result of the increased competition that has developed based on the desire to identify the productiveness of universities, departments and faculties. It has created the pressure on scholars to produce quality outputs in the form of publications in high-ranked international refereed journals.

    This study adopts the idea that high-ranked academic journals are setting the context for what is valid and not valid in accounting scholarship, i.e. high-ranked international refereed journals becomes the prevalent discourse for how researchers supposed to write and think about research in accounting scholarship.

    The purpose of this paper is through a discourse analysis study if the same phenomena that are apparent in the prevalent discourse of accounting set by top journals also can be seen in the less prestigious and lower-ranked journals of accounting.

    Industrial PhD students and their projects2016In: Procedia Computer Science, ISSN 1877-0509, E-ISSN 1877-0509, Vol. 100, p. 739-746Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the usual case a PhD student is enrolled and supervised at an academic faculty, in Sweden also most often employed at a department of the university. The whole doctoral education takes part in one single environment. There is an opportunity to enroll “classes” of industrial PhD students in industrial graduate schools. The PhD student is in these cases most often employed by an industry. Each PhD student has at least one academic supervisor, but also an industrial mentor. Sometimes the industrial mentor also holds a PhD and can formally also be an industrial co-supervisor. Even if the funding of the PhD student is a research project, the doctoral work is often not performed as a project. There are often severe delays of the dissertation. The public defense often happens a year after the funding has ended. This represents a large cost for the university or for the industry. The progression of the student lies outside the control of the university management and also the funding industry. We have conducted a case study to explore the organizing of PhD work with the purpose to describe whether project methodology could support industrial PhD students in their progression towards a PhD.
