    Converging and diverging pressures in PBB development: the experiences of Finland and Sweden2018In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 20, no 12, p. 1836-1857Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to provide institutional explanations for the development of performance-based budgeting (PBB). Particularly, we explore the tensions between converging and diverging pressures. By analysing PBB in two countries with significant experience with it, Finland and Sweden, the research explains why we observe only evolutionary changes in actual budgetary practices. Indeed, the introduction of this practice is part of a global reform process undertaken over decades by public sector organizations. Nevertheless, the countries still struggle with PBB and, despite global converging pressures, diverging pressures shape its development, challenging its implementation and use, and paving the way for evolutionary changes.

    A public management perspective on smart cities: 'Urban auditing' for management, governance and accountability2020In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our exploration of three bodies of literature - public management, accounting and urban governance - shows that three views on these new technological practices of 'urban auditing' are present in the literature: a technocratic, a critical and an emergent view. We use these three views to introduce the six papers in this special issue. We conclude with the observation that the public management perspective is important for understanding smart city dynamics: we should not present our insights only in our own community, but should also connect to the interdisciplinary debate on smart cities.

    Entrepreneurship at the local government level: stimulating and restraining forces in the Swedish waste management sector2014In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 16, no 5, p. 708-732Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores influential forces on public sector entrepreneurship in two different organizational forms: the local government administration and the local government corporation. In arguing for the need to consider the context of organizational form, this article presents a development beyond existing research on public entrepreneurship (PE) which so far has been conducted only to a limited extent. The inductive analysis identifies factors not previously perceived as influential on PE. These findings support the importance of distinguishing between organizational forms. Finally, the findings can be used for formulating hypotheses possible to test in larger research designs.

    Organizational ambidexterityat the local government level: the effects of managerial focus2015In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 17, no 6, p. 812-833Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore how managerial focus influences organizational ambidexterity in different organizational forms at the local government level. An entrepreneurial, leadership, or stakeholder managerial focus will each find reflection in the simultaneous pursuit of exploration and exploitation of resources, and the influence will differ with the organizational form, i.e. whether a local government administration (LGA), or a local government corporation (LGC). Hypotheses are tested on Swedish public organizations operating in the waste management and water and sewerage industries. The findings indicate that LGCs have higher levels of organizational ambidexterity, and that the determinants differ from those in LGAs.
