    Vikten av intern styrning och kontroll: hur företag kan förebygga interna bedrägerier utifrån COSO-ramverket2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett företag som arbetar med ramverket COSO bör implementera samtliga komponenter för en effektiv intern kontroll. I kontrollmiljön bör det införas en sund företagskultur där medarbetarna får vara involverade. Vid riskbedömning bör företaget utgå från att interna bedrägerier kan förekomma. Kontrollaktiviteter innebär att företaget ska urskilja inkompatibla arbetsuppgifter samt anta dualitetsprincipen. Företaget bör införa olika kommunikationsvägar som till exempel visselblåsning, detta faller under information och kommunikation. I övervakning, uppföljning och utvärdering bör företaget arbeta med att både upptäcka såväl som att förebygga interna bedrägerier.

    CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY  COMMUNICATION from a NETWORK PERSPECTIVE: A Case Study of Peab AB2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Problem Description: Since there are recognized similarities in the construction industry between relationship building and strategic CSR engaging thus managing and communicating CSR should be evaluated from the industrial network perspective. Close interaction between stakeholders and implemented strategic CSR facilitate to perform successfully and remain competitive when facing challenges in modern construction industry. Peab AB was chosen for the research as one of the leading construction companies in the Nordic region that recently redefined its CSR strategy and now delivering and sharing the vision through entire established network.

    Purpose of the research: Sustainable development has become part of the business plans for Swedish construction companies. Therefore it is relevant to research implementation of sustainable dynamics in the Peab’s vision by analyzing their strategic CSR process and how it is communicated to their key stakeholders within complex industrial network.

    Research questions:

    How is sustainability vision and strategic CSR communicated through Peab’s business relationships within its industrial network?

      • How does the company communicate its CSR strategy within the industrial network?
      • How does the company handle its CSR issues within long-term relationships?

    Methods: In this thesis qualitative research method with deductive approach has been used. The empirical findings contain primary data such as interviews with the management of the Peab Group, Peab Grundläggning, Swerock and Leimet. The secondary data sources were academical journals, books, Peab website and its corporate policy, annual & sustainability reports.

    Conclusion: By combining traditional industrial marketing theories together with the modern strategic CSR communication, it has been concluded that the sustainability vision and strategic CSR engaged and communicated to the stakeholders through Peab’s industrial network have process kind of nature.  Even though sustainability vision helps Peab to remain successful and competitive in the long run their performance in the industrial network depends highly on close cooperation with the stakeholders. Close interaction and committed relations with partners is one of the ways of handling sustainability aspects in the construction industry.

    The effects of immigration on unemployment: A case study of Sweden and the UK2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Problem: The creation of the European Union gave people the right of free movement between the membership countries. In theory, the creation of a single market should create many additional employment and earning opportunities for the workers in the member states of the EU (Bauer & Zammermann, 1999 cited at Borjas, 2010). Some natives believe that an increase in immigration will post a threat to them. They believe that their wages will go down and jobs will be taken from them. Is this true or is it just a sign of xenophobia?

    Purpose of the Research: The purpose of this study was to replicate successfully the study: “Examining the Relationship between Immigration and Unemployment Using National Insurance Number Registration Data” by Lucchino, P., Rosazza – Bondibene, C., and Portes, J. from 2012. Then the same research methods were used in Swedish data analysis.

    Methods: Data on unemployment and immigration was collected from Sweden and the UK and multiple regressions were run using the STATA11 software.

    Conclusion: The immigration rate had no significant affect on the unemployment rate both in the UK and Sweden. However, adding a one year lagged immigration rate was found to be significant at a 5% significance level in the Swedish analysis, but was insignificant in the UK analysis. The control variables for labor supply proved to be insignificant in the analysis of both countries.

    Investeringskalkylering: en kartläggning och analys av kalkyleringsarbetet på Volvo Construction Equipment2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Problems: How does Volvos CE: s four Swedish plants work with investment appraisals? Does the work differ between the plants? If differences exist, what can be improved in order to make the work more uniform?  

    Purpose: To map the work with investment appraisals at Volvo CE: s four Swedish plats, to analyze differences in work between the plants and give proposals to a more homogenous working.

    Method: A method of qualitative nature. The study mainly contains raw data from semi structured interviews. Secondary data, such as internal policy documents and documentation of completed investment projects, has supplemented the raw data.

    Analysis: The mapping shows significant differences in work with investments between Volvo CE: s Swedish plants. A big difference between the plants is the extent of which they use investment appraisals in the investment process. Common to all plants are the deficiencies in establishing post calculations.

    Conclusions: Study proposals for improvements that will lead to a more homogenous work include that project managers at each plant in the future should work for a common project model. Proposals also include that a Business Case containing a common calculation template with investment calculations shall be made in the investment projects. Post calculations are also recommended at projects which a Business Case has been made. The post calculations will allow a comparison between forecast and outcome. Finally, it is proposed that an investment council with representatives from each plant is formed.

    The Janus-Faced Subsidiary: A Coevolutionary Framework of Dual Network Embeddedness2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper contributes to the emerging literature on the subsidiary in its dual context (Achcaoucaou et al, 2014; Ciabuschi et al, 2014, Figuereido, 2012; Meyer et al., 2011; Mudambi and Swift, 2012). However, this paper departs from the above studies, which all take a rather static view of the dually embedded subsidiary. A dynamic co-evolutionary perspective is taken, by longitudinally tracking the guided coevolution of subsidiary role and local network’s knowledge stock. We subscribe more to the complementarity for balanced coevolution in both contexts (Ciabuschi et al., 2014) over the trade-off thesis in that reliance on one context for resources may limit access to resources in the other context (Gammelgaard and Pedersen, 2010).

    We show how the subsidiary is both a catalyst and coordinator of resource and knowledge flow in a form of guided coevolution to ensure requisite variety and hence accentuate the importance of dual embeddedness in understanding subsidiary evolution.

    Bostadsrättsföreningar: -Konsten att uppnå ekonomisk stabilitet2008Oppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Datum: 2008-06-02

    Nivå: Kandidatuppsats i Företagsekonomi, 15 poäng

    Författare: Tano Colmet, Lisa Svensson

    Handledare: Per Janze

    Titel: Bostadsrättsföreningar – Konsten att uppnå ekonomisk

    stabilitet

    Problem: Bostadsrättsmarknaden växer sig allt större och starkare och det är viktigt för bostadsrättsföreningar att, med kompetens och medvetenhet om framtiden, noga planera sin ekonomi. Detta för att bibehålla och stärka sitt förtroende gentemot marknaden och inte gå i konkurs.

    Syfte: Syftet är att beskriva ombildningsprocessen från hyresrätt till bostadsrätt samt undersöka vad en bostadsrättsförening ska ta i beaktande för att uppnå ekonomisk stabilitet.

    Metod: I denna uppsats har en kvalitativ metod tillämpats. Metoden valdes eftersom målpopulationen för denna uppsats är förhållandevis liten. Författarna har valt att intervjua en styrelseledamot på två olika bostadsrättsföreningar samt en person på SBC som har erfarenhet gällande ombildningar och ekonomiska planer.

    Slutsats: Minst 2/3 av hyresgästerna i en fastighet måste slå sig samman i en bildad bostadsrättsförening. För att sedan gemensamt genomgå en ombildningsprocess och slutligen bli fastighetsägare. Viktiga faktorer som en bostadsrättsförening bör lägga stor vikt på vid upprättandet av den ekonomiska planen samt den ekonomiska förvaltningen är underhålls-, reparations- och räntekostnaderna. Föreningen fungerar som en organisation och bör präglas av drivkrafterna kompetens, innovation samt effektivitet för att uppnå ekonomisk stabilitet. Tiden för planering av ekonomin och kunskaperna från en bostadsrättsorganisation är också viktiga.

    Interoperability and convergence for welfare technology2018Inngår i: Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Volume 10927 LNCS, Springer, 2018, , s. 13-24s. 13-24Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Interoperability and convergence are two key features of any working sociotechnical infrastructure that includes a plurality and multiplicity of communities of practice using technologies. However, as information systems scale up and the heterogeneity of users increases, it becomes challenging to actualise interoperability and convergence. When it comes to welfare services, the development of interoperable information systems and converging communities of practice is key to the quality and efficiency of services, both for practitioners and users. This paper elaborates on these concepts and their practical relevance by presenting and discussing data from a research project on ageing and welfare technology in Sweden. A participatory approach is meant to act as methodological support for the actualisation of interoperability and convergence even though socio-organisational and political constraints cannot be fully overcome once for all.

    Future ageing: welfare technology practices for our future older selves2019Inngår i: Futures: The journal of policy, planning and futures studies, ISSN 0016-3287, E-ISSN 1873-6378, Vol. 109, s. 117-129Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we elaborate on how the future older person is characterised and what future ageing entails in relation to welfare technologies highlighting which actors, social and material, affect innovation governance and discussing who does not. Starting from a distinction between public, private, and academic perspectives we discuss how companies, public sector organisa- tions, and research-oriented actors construct future ageing through sociomaterial practices in the welfare technology arena. We base our reasoning on an ethnographic study conducted during the 2017 edition of the yearly MVTe-Mötesplats Välfärdsteknologi och E-hälsa Swedish event (in English: Meeting place for Welfare Technology and e-Health). We use the concept ‘welfare technology practices’ to describe how actors perform future ageing by producing and reprodu- cing a scenario where the positive effects of technology are assumed and the plurality of future older selves is overlooked. We problematise this view by reflecting on ageing as a complex so- ciomaterial process that calls for welfare technology practices and policies open to a pluralistic view of the future as futures. This study may inspire research that further explore how future ageing is constructed as well as support the development of welfare technology practices for addressing current blind spots.

    Subversive Participatory Design: Reflections on a case-study2016Inngår i: ACM International Conference Proceeding Series, volume 2: PDC '16 Proceedings of the 14th Participatory Design Conference: Short Papers, Interactive Exhibitions, Workshops, 2016, Vol. 2, s. 53-56Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    his paper grounds in a research experience for engaging older people as co-designers of several wearable and in-house technologies. We start by describing a case study that is a pre-commercial procurement aimed at developing innovative services for the welfare of citizens, with a focus on older people. We present and discuss the qualitative data gathered on the occasion of a bodystorming with two groups of participants. The analysis led to the identification of the "aesthetic appropriateness", the "social sensitivity", and the "gender awareness" as three different dimensions that affected the acceptability of the technological devices. This approach created the conditions for instantiating the subversive power of participation. At the same time, such a subversion proved the authenticity of the participatory process. By drawing on this project, the purpose of the paper is to further our understanding of the conditions for Participatory Design.

    Är man stor måste man vara snäll: En fallstudie i hur ICA Gruppen och MAXI-butiker samverkar i hållbarhetsarbetet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Frågeställning:

    • Vad motiverar ICA Gruppen respektive MAXI-butikerna till hållbarhetsarbete och hur skiljer sig deras hållbarhetsmål åt?
    • Hur integreras ICA Gruppens hållbarhetsarbete i de olika MAXI-butikerna?
    • Vilka strategier kännetecknar ICA Gruppens och MAXI-butikernas hållbarhetsarbete?

    Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen är att beskriva samverkan mellan ICA Gruppens och mellansveriges handlarägda MAXI-butikers hållbarhetsarbete.

    Metod: Denna kvalitativa uppsats med en abduktiv ansats, baseras på primärdata från fem separata intervjuer med chefer från fyra olika MAXI-butiker och en hållbarhetsansvarig på ICA:s huvudkontor. Förutom intervjuer har vetenskapliga artiklar med relevanta teorier, forskningsrapporter inom hållbarhetsarbete och adekvat litteratur studerats. För att utvärdera resultatet, har det empiriska materialet analyserats genom kodning.

    Slutsats: Både ICA Gruppen och MAXI-butikerna har ekonomiska såväl som filantropiska incitament för hållbarhetsarbetet. Det som skiljer dem åt är att butikernas hållbarhetsarbete främst sker i dess närmiljö med konsumenten i åtanke medan ICA Gruppen vill göra en insats för världen. Genom dialog och demokratiska processer sätts gemensamma mål upp. Det finns riktlinjer och olika digitala verktyg samt coacher för att hjälpa butikerna i arbetet. I butikerna sker hållbarhetsinitiativen mer spontant än hos ICA Gruppen. Där är arbetet mer långsiktigt och strategiskt med en tanke på hur varumärket kan stärkas.

    Clearing for Action: Leadership as a Relational Phenomenon2011Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Although leadership is deemed to matter, scholars seldom pay attention to the phenomenon itself, as it is happening. Hence definitions abound, but there is a lack of vocabulary for expressing what leadership is about without ending up talking of individual leaders and/or descriptions of abstract “goodness”. Such an idealised and individualistic construct of leadership has consequences, both in theory and practice, in terms of providing a reductionist account, segregating and putting people in hierarchies, reinforcing the dominance of masculinities, and constraining how leadership is to be performed. Therefore, in order to contribute to our still limited knowledge of leadership beyond ideals and individualised conceptions, the purpose of this thesis is to add to our understanding of leadership as a social phenomenon going on at work and to contribute to developing a vocabulary for it.

    Reading the empirical material more and more closely, produced through an ethnography-inspired approach at two Swedish organisations and consisting of transcripts of interactions and interviews, the initial research question, “how is leadership shared in practice?” is subsequently modified and different strands of theories are applied: shared leadership, postheroic leadership and a radical processual view of leadership. In this way, different understandings of leadership are analysed. As a result, the theoretical concepts of organisational becoming, relational leadership and work practices are combined in an alternative approach. Two leadership practices are thus identified: constructing positions and positioning, and constructing issues. Such an analysis also leads to an alternative way of understanding leadership: leadership as clearing for action. Clearing is both a space, a bounded space, and an action. Therefore it expresses a relational perspective in which there are no stable entities, by suggesting a more dynamic view, at the same time as it also conveys the idea that we are talking about a constrained space.

    I thus define clearing for action as an emergent bounded aggregate of actions and talks that become possible, making others impossible or less probable. Actors and their worlds are constructed in certain ways that expand or contract the space of possible action. The result is a specific reading of leadership to add to the field of leadership studies. In this reading, leadership is an ordinary, repeated, social achievement at work in which possibilities for action and talk are constructed in constrained terms.

    Is there leadership in a fluid world?: Exploring the ongoing production of direction in organizing2018Inngår i: Leadership, ISSN 1742-7150, E-ISSN 1742-7169, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 83-109Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the idea of leadership being a process is clearly stated in leadership definitions, most researchers focus on individuals rather than observing and studying processes. This contradiction has been highlighted by a number of scholars turning to leadership processes and practices, thereby drawing attention to the interactional and social aspects of the phenomenon. Such contributions mostly take process perspectives in which entities still play an important role. In this article, I therefore aim at contributing to leadership studies based on a process ontology by exploring one central aspect of leadership work, the production of direction, processually. I do so by building on geographer Massey’s conception of space, thus adding a spatial dimension that enables me to conceptualize direction as the development of an evolving relational configuration. In order to empirically explore such a conceptualization, two constructs are proposed: the construction of positions and the construction of issues. The reading of leadership work thus produced leads me to suggest ‘clearing for action’ as a means of conveying the spatio-temporal and constructive (reality constructing) character of leadership work.

    Naming it as leadership: A relational construction of leadership as an alternative to heroic masculinity in an empirical study of two Swedish companies2008Inngår i: Engendering Leadership Through Research and Practice: Conference Proceedings, Perth, 21 – 24 July 2008 / [ed] Jacquie Hutchinson, 2008, s. 148-158Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional leadership theory is based on the conflation of leadership with leaders. Lately the focus has been on heroic leadership, a leadership practice tightly intertwined with masculinity. Male success has been depicted in terms of an independent, aggressive, secure, decisive, worldly leader (Ely & Padavic, 2007). The first aim of this paper is to contribute to post-heroic leadership theory by offering a relational and non-individual/masculine/heroic conception of leadership. I will question the idea that leadership is something leaders do as well as I will try to keep the focus on the leadership that is done, not on the individuals doing it, and name it as leadership. The second aim of the paper is to ask what happens with a relational conception of leadership, is it also gendering? I will therefore analyse the practicing of leadership (in my conceptualization) at the intersection with the practicing of gender and show that, even if leadership as analyzed in this paper is a practicing that does not directly imply heroic masculinity, if gender (and seniority) is not taken into consideration and critically analyzed and reflected upon, inequality and exclusion from the doing of leadership will persist.

    ‘Placing the organisation’: Studying the communicative constitution of organisation as the production of place2015Inngår i: APROS/EGOS 2015, 2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I want to add to studies exploring how ‘organisations’ are ‘made real’, how they are made present and materialised (Cooren, Brummans, & Charrieras, 2008) by focusing on the spatial dimension of such processes (Vásquez and Cooren, 2013). Leaning on Doreen Massey’s work on space and place (2005), I propose that the processes making ‘the organisation’ present may be studied as processes producing a specific (but contested) place (‘the organisation’) and I empirically explore such a possibility. This way, the relational and material character of such an achievement, the role played by co-evolving trajectories, is foregrounded. In my analysis I focus on how the production of an organisation as a place is strengthened through the ongoing production of other places (the ‘landscape’ (Cooren et al. , 2008)). In particular, given the empirical case analysed, it is possible to see how the production of certain organisations (outdoors industry) is intertwined with the production of ‘Sweden’ as a place (or in other word, with ethnicity constructions). This enables to foreground also power dimensions that make such a process a ‘powerfull’ rather than neutral process.

    Privilege in place: How organisational practices contribute to meshing privilege in place2019Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 35, nr 2, artikkel-id UNSP 101035Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies of social difference have often focused on segregation and oppression, leaving out the ‘up -side of discrimination’: privilege. Privilege is the unrecognised advantage positioning certain people in a favoured state and systematically conferring power on groups of people in specific contexts. Privilege is also situated: it accumulates in place. Building on processual understanding of space and place, the purpose of this paper is to add to our understanding of processes of privilege accumulation in place by exploring the relationship between privilege and place when both are considered processes rather than entities. Building on Doreen Massey’s work (2005, 2011) for analysing an empirical case, Nordic Outdoor, the article shows that privilege can be understood as meshed in place: privilege accumulates in the same process of configuring trajectories that gives shape to the place in which privilege emerges. Mobilising the concept of place, trajectories and power geometries enables us to direct our attention to constructions of convergence. These concepts are thus not only helpful in studying privilege and power, but they also allow us to treat privilege accumulation as sociomaterial process, taking form locally as the throwntogetherness of a place is negotiated, but also related to many other places and times.

    Studying intersections as production of place(s): illustrations from outdoors entrepreneuring2013Inngår i: the Nordic Academy of Management,NFF, Aug 21-23, 2013, Iceland, 2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims at contributing to the study of intersections by focusing on the simultaneous accomplishment of gender, ethnicity and body ableness. While such enterprise in organization studies often draws on the concept of identity, I propose to bring the concepts of space and place into the discussion. Space is seen as “the sphere of a multiplicity of trajectories”. Hence, space does not exist prior to identities or entities and their relations, space is relationally constituted, space unfolds in interactions and is continuously being made. And space allows for thinking of coexisting heterogeneity, of a plurality of trajectories contemporaneously existing, the simultaneity of stories-so-far. Drawing on human geography, and in particular the work of Doreen Massey, and on a strong process perspective in organization studies, I thus focus on the production of specific places as central to entrepreneuring in the outdoors industry. The idea of place as the local, genuine, “real”, closed, coherent is also challenged by such a take on space. It thus becomes interesting studying how places are produced and reproduced, made coherent (or contested), in connections and disconnections, while doing entrepreneurship – and what kind of configurations of relations are thus achieved, configurations producing and reproducing gender, ethnicity and body ableness.

    What kind of place is taking space?: Studying intersections as production of place(s)2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims at contributing to the study of intersections by focusing on the simultaneous accomplishment of gender, ethnicity and able bodiness. While such enterprise in organization studies often draws on the concept of identity, I propose to bring the concepts of space and place into the discussion. Space is seen as “the sphere of a multiplicity of trajectories”. Hence, space does not exist prior to identities or entities and their relations, space is relationally constituted, space unfolds in interactions and is continuously being made. And space allows for thinking of coexisting heterogeneity, of a plurality of trajectories contemporaneously existing, the simultaneity of stories-so-far. Drawing on human geography, and in particular the work of Doreen Massey, and on a strong process perspective in organization studies, I thus focus on the production of specific places as important to organizing in the outdoors industry. The idea of place as the local, genuine, “real”, closed, coherent is also challenged by such a take on space. It thus becomes interesting studying how places are produced and reproduced, made coherent (or contested), in connections and disconnections, while organizing unfolds – and what kind of configurations of relations are thus achieved, configurations producing and reproducing gender, ethnicity and able bodiness.

    COMPLEMENTARY REPRESENTATIONAL PRACTICES FOR ARTICULATING MATTERS OF CONCERN2018Inngår i: PIN-C: the 5 th Participatory Innovation Conference, 2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Matters of concern can be defined as complicated, engaging, diverse, fragile, and situated issue for which we care. Researchers can contribute to articulating them. In this paper, we discuss one methodological aspect that influences the articulation of matters of concern by applying a participatory design approach. By referring to workshops organized for studying the introduction of welfare technology for older people, we argue that combining different representational practices both enables and constrains the participants’ agency. Enabling and constraining depends on the performativity of the sociomateriality of the practice of method and the analysis of such aspects lead to the articulation of matters of concern.

    Leadership cultures and discursive hybridisation: On the cultural production of leadership in higher education reforms2015Inngår i: International Journal of Public Leadership, ISSN 2056-4929, Vol. 11, nr 3/4, s. 147-165Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the concept of leadership culture and analyse how leadership cultures are produced in higher education reforms, in a hybridised discursive context of traditional academic values and emerging managerialism and leaderism.

    Design/methodology/approach: Building on a perspective on leadership as a cultural phenomenon emerging in processes in which societal, sectorial and professional discursive resources are invoked, this study adds to earlier studies on how notions of leadership are involved in the transformation of higher education organisations. To this end, the method combines a traditional qualitative study of change initiatives over a long period of time with participative observation. Focusing on two vignettes, the analysis centres on how several discursive resources are drawn upon in daily interaction.

    Findings: The emergence of hybrid leadership cultures in which several discursive resources are drawn upon in daily interaction is illustrated. This paper emphasises how hybrid cultures develop through confirmation, re-formulation and rejection of discursive influences.

    Research limitations/implications: An extended empirical material would enable further understanding of what cultural constructions of leadership that become confirmed, re-formulated or rejected. International comparisons would also enrich the analysis.

    Practical implications: This paper may influence leadership, leadership development and change initiatives in higher education organization.

    Social implications: Higher education organizations are crucial for societal development and this paper contributes to better understanding how they are changing.

    Originality/value: The perspective proposed builds on recent developments in leadership studies and expands the means for focusing on social processes rather than individuals.

    Mapping the Leadership-as-Practice Terrain: Comparative elements2016Inngår i: Leadership‐as‐Practice: Theory and Application / [ed] Raelin, Routledge, 2016Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Inspired by the practice turn in organization and social theory (Schatzki et al., 2001), there has been increasing recognition of the value of theorizing about and studying leadership from a practice perspective (Denis et al., 2005, 2010; Carroll et al., 2008; Crevani et al., 2010; Raelin, 2011; Endrissat & von Arx, 2013). The resulting notion of “leadership-as-practice” gives rise to high expectations but may also cause misunderstandings among leadership scholars and practitioners alike. To recognize its potential we believe it is important to bring to the fore some of its underlying assumptions and outline its similarities and differences to other relatively close concepts. Hence, this chapter provides an introduction to the leadership-as-practice perspective by means of two central comparisons. First, we probe into leadership studies and consider the similarities and differences of a leadership-as-practice perspective with related leadership approaches such as the leadership style approach (and the subsequent situational leadership and contingency models) and the relational leadership approach. We highlight the consequences of doing research from each one of these three perspectives, mainly with respect to the underlying understanding of reality (ontology) and, consequently, the “unit of analysis” (i.e. what is studied and focused on to produce knowledge about leadership). We include examples of typical research questions and exemplary studies in each of the three domains to support our reasoning. Of course, the comparison cannot be completed by considering just two other approaches. However, the two seem most relevant because they share several similarities with the leadership-as-practice approach that need closer examination to define the specific contribution of leadership-as-practice. The style (and the situational/contingency) approach is widely known, entitative in character, but with a similar focus on leadership actions to the practice approach. By making the differences between the two approaches explicit, we hope to inspire the broad range of scholars familiar with the style approach to consider the practice perspective as a potential alternative that allows them to enrich understanding of the accomplishments of leadership. The relational approach, on the other hand, is the closest to the practice approach, and this is sometimes even used synonymously. However, differences exist and we believe that it is important to make them explicit to better understand the critical contribution of leadership-as-practice.

    In the second comparison we look outside leadership studies and focus instead on the “as-practice” approach, outlining the similarities and differences between leadership-as-practice and other practice approaches in organization studies, namely strategy-as-practice and coordination-as-practice. As we will show, although the underlying assumptions are the same, they differ with respect to the social accomplishment on which they focus, that is the consequences of organizing processes that they try to explain and understand. Because of space restrictions, we had to limit our comparison to those organizational phenomena that we consider most relevant for defining leadership-as-practice. Both coordination and strategy work share similarities with leadership that sometimes make it difficult to distinguish among them. We hope that the focus on ‘social accomplishment’ will help the reader to better understand what the unique contribution of each of these organizational constructs is.

    Ledarskap i en digitaliserad värld2016Annet (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Tre trender – idén om ledarskap som praktik, projektifieringen och flexibiliseringen – påverkar framtidens ledarskap i en digitaliserad värld och leder till flera utmaningar. Det nya ledarskapsidealet skapas i spänningsfältet mellan å ena sidan större frihet och inkludering och å andra sidan större segregering, kontroll och övervakning.
