    Nu slipper jag fråga någon: En studie om hur man förklarar termer i en text utan att läsbarheten påverkas.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Ishockey är en av Sveriges populäraste sporter och engagerar många, både i och utanför rinken. Hockeyligan.se är Elitseriens officiella webbplats och erbjuder besökarna möjligheten att följa matcherna direkt från en dator via ett text flöde. I liveflödet förekommer många förkortningar som är svåra att förstå. Målet med denna studie är att hitta en lösning på hur man ska förklara dem utan att påverka läsbarheten negativt. 

    Fokus ligger på den textuella biten och inte den grafiska och hur informationen presenteras. Genom att göra textanalyser och en omvärldsanalys hoppas jag få tillräckligt med kunskap för att tillsist kunna göra en gestaltning som uppnår mitt mål med arbetet. Det vill säga inkludera alla besökare. 

    Förstudien bestod av en läsbarhetsanalys och en textanalys. Textanalysen visade att informationen som idag ges är relevant men att förkortningarna borde förklaras för att öka möjligheten att förstå innehållet, vilken min enkätundersökning bekräftar. Där svarade nämligen 77 procent att de ansåg att det finns ett allmänt behov av förklaringar av termerna. 

    Resultatet blev en gestaltning där användaren använder sin datamus för att få fram förklaringarna av förkortningarna. Genom att dra musen över ordet så dyker förklaringen upp i en ruta, en så kallad tooltip, vilket ger läsaren möjligheten att själv välja om han/hon vill ta del av informationen eller inte. På så sätt har läsbarheten inte påverkats.

    När det gäller det textuella har studien givit mig följande resultat när det gäller hur man skriver förklarande texter för en tooltip på webben: 

    • Var kortfattad. 
    • Skriv det som krävs.
    • Tänk på målgruppen.

    Att fastna i det interna nätet: Ett arbete i att inkludera hela organisationen i informationssystem som intranät.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta examensarbete har gått ut på att genom Informationsdesign, och främst textdesign, hitta ett sätt att underlätta och locka ovana datoranvändare till att använda nya informationssystem som intranät. Eftersom människan belastas tungt kognitivt när hon ställs inför uppgifter hon inte har någon förkunskap i eller får utbildning i.

     

    I min studie har jag arbetat med Swecon, som är ett affärsområde i koncernen Lantmännen. Swecon, som var min fallstudie i detta arbete, har problem med användningen av ledningssystemet på det nya intranätet.  Medarbetarna, mestadels ovana datoranvändare, upplever det som svåranvänt och använder det därför inte.

    Kvalitativa och kvantitativa studier har gjorts på Swecon för att bekräfta problemet, förstå problemet samt hitta en lösning. Utefter detta har en prototyp tagits fram.

    Wayfinding – för den som gått vilse: En studie om att finna sin väg i en likformig flervåningsbyggnad2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about the complexity that is present in wayfinding and wayshowing in a multilevel building where the floors are uniform and how this problem can be solved. Åva gymnasium is a municipal upper secondary school whose facilities span over multiple levels, many of which look the same. The uniformity of the building contributes to difficulty in navigating the building. It is this practical problem that is at the root of this study. The purpose of the study is to clarify the interior navigation at Åva gymnasium, thus facilitating for pupils and teachers in everyday life. In addition, the hope is that the work can provide a deeper understanding of how wayfinding theories can be applied in a complex multilevel building. The study connects several different aspects of wayfinding and wayshowing. By analysing theories of wayfinding and various aspects of this subject, such as signing, distinction and wayshowing the comprehension of what can be improved has been formed. An increased understanding of the space and the problem has been achieved through the following methods; observation, site analysis and notation analysis. The methods showed that there is a problem that is based on the fact that the floor plan in the building is uniform and little work has been done to change this The result of the study is visualized through a design proposal. With the help of clearer distinctions between the different levels of the building and simple but efficient signage, the environment may become more structured and easily understood.

    Towards a heart and soul for co-creative research practice: a systemic approach2019Inngår i: Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, ISSN 1744-2648, E-ISSN 1744-2656, Vol. 15, nr 3, s. 353-370Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The language of co-creation has become popular with policy makers, researchers and consultants wanting to support evidence-based change. However, there is little agreement about what features a research or consultancy project must have for peers to recognise the project as co-creative, and therefore for it to contribute to the growing body of practice and theory under that heading. This means that scholars and practitioners do not have a shared basis for critical reflection, improving practice and debating ethics, legitimacy and quality. White seeking to avoid any premature defining of orthodoxy, this article offers a framework to support researchers and practitioners in discussing the boundaries and the features that are beginning to characterise a particular discourse, such as the one that is unfolding around the concept of co-creation. The paper is the outcome of an online and face-to-face dialogue among an international group of scholars. The dialogue draws on Critical Systems Heuristics' (Ulrich, 1994) questions concerning motivation (revealing assumptions about its purpose and value), power (interrogating assumptions about who has control and is therefore able to define success), knowledge (surfacing assumptions about experience and expertise) and legitimacy (disclosing moral assumptions). The paper ends by suggesting important areas for further exploration to contribute to the emerging discourse of co-creation in ways that support critical reflection, improved practice, and provide a basis for debating ethics and quality.

    Subsidiary management’s horizontal boundary spanning activity as entrepreneurial behaviour2019Inngår i: Entrepreneurial Behaviour: Individual, Contextual and Microfoundational Perspectives, Palgrave Macmillan , 2019, s. 169-202Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    To date, the rich subsidiary literature has largely overlooked the individual entrepreneurial behaviours required by subsidiary managers to build crucial linkages and access vital knowledge. This chapter addresses this issue and takes a microfoundational approach to develop a typology of subsidiary managers’ attentional engagement on key boundary spanning strategic activities. By substantiating middle managers’ strategic activities outside the realm of the direct TMT perspective, the chapter proposes an integrated framework of middle managers’ horizontal boundary spanning activities in multinational corporations (MNCs). Furthermore, this chapter reveals insights on the true levels of strategic coordination required to manage large complex organizations, and how managers focus their attention on different horizontal activities to drive corporate entrepreneurship depending on the specific agenda of their management context.

    The microfoundations of subsidiary initiatives: How subsidiary manager activities unlock entrepreneurship2019Inngår i: Global Strategy Journal, ISSN 2042-5791, E-ISSN 2042-5805, Vol. 9, nr 1, s. 66-91Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Research Summary: We use a microfoundations lens to challenge the assumption of a simple relationship between organizational-level context (subsidiary entrepreneurial orientation) and entrepreneurial outcomes (initiative realization). Drawing on middle manager and subsidiary literature, we argue that the strategic activities of the subsidiary's central actor, the subsidiary CEO (referred to as the subsidiary manager), translates the benefits of subsidiary entrepreneurship for initiative realization. We test this mediating effect of subsidiary manager micro-level activities on data from 186 individuals. The results of our multilevel mediation analysis show that micro-activities of subsidiary managers mobilize subsidiary entrepreneurship for initiative realization, "downward" through facilitating subsidiary adaptability and "horizontally" through enabling embeddedness in the local environment. Our findings also challenge the accepted value of "upward" championing alternatives. Revealing the centrality of subsidiary manager activities for unlocking entrepreneurship demonstrates the value of adopting a microfoundations lens for understanding organizational phenomena. Managerial Summary: Multinational companies (MNCs) increasingly expect their subsidiary units to contribute through realizing initiatives, such as new product, service, or process designs. Such outcomes are encouraged through a supporting organizational context for entrepreneurship. But to understand how an entrepreneurial context translates into realized initiatives demands that we apply a microfoundations lens and consider the activities of the subsidiary's central actor, the subsidiary chief executive officer-referred to as the "subsidiary manager." The subsidiary manager is responsible for mobilizing the subsidiary to develop relationships to access the knowledge, ideas, and opportunities implicit in the initiative process. Revealing the impact of these micro-activities advances our understanding of how to liberate the benefits of entrepreneurship for realizing initiatives. This study offers key insights for both subsidiary managers and headquarters.

    Innovative Technologies Shaping Lives of Men and Women in Nigeria2018Inngår i: Nordic African Days NAD, 2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The global world over the years, witnessed significant transformations, where innovative technologies are shaping lifestyles, lifting millions from poverty, providing alternative and sustainable sources of income and stretching the reach of quality life to rural and remote areas. Africa is not an exception, and in this regard, Nigeria is witnessing a new page in its socioeconomic development, where the country is leveraging innovative technologies to unlock its technological potentials. Using desk and document reviews, coupled with online interviews with some young Nigerian innovators, the results showcase several Nigerian home-grown technology companies that have achieved global recognition. The companies include ccHub, Andela, PagaTech, BudgIT, Hotels.ng, Konga, Wakanow and MainOne among others as the country’s success stories, making immense opportunities for technological growth and job creation. The paper further sees the Facebook founder’s visit to Nigeria as validation for betting big on the countries innovative technology industry. The paper however found that the scientific narrative on Nigeria’s technology and innovative industry is under-appreciated across the world due to lack of information and support systems. This scientific contribution is a page turner to reposition Nigeria’s innovative technological ecosystem on the global map. The paper hereby recommends a public–private support to this young Nigeria’s innovative technological ecosystem to accelerate the socioeconomic development of the country.

    Knowing Differently in Systemic Intervention2015Inngår i: Systems research and behavioral science, ISSN 1092-7026, E-ISSN 1099-1743, Vol. 32, nr 5, s. 546-561Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper makes the case for extended ways of knowing in systemic intervention. It argues that the deployment of formal (even reflective) thinking and dialogue methods are inadequate, on their own, to the critical tasks of comprehending larger wholes and appreciating others' viewpoints. Theory and techniques need to go further and access other forms of knowing, held in experiential, practical or symbolic ways. This could offer a better basis to incorporate marginalized people and other phenomena that are affected by interventions but do not have a voice, such as ecosystems and future generations.
