    Fair comparison of developing software in different locations: dynamic decision model2019In: World Review of Intermodal Transportation Research (WRITR), ISSN 1749-4729, E-ISSN 1749-4737, Vol. 8, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While offshore software development is frequently looked at in simple economic terms, assumed benefits are not always achieved. This can be attributed to unexpectedly high transition costs and a number of extra costs for maintaining a sourcing strategy. When offshoring fails, companies need to revisit their decision. In this paper, an analytical model is proposed to support evaluation of offshoring strategies and decision options. The model focuses on value comparison, and treats outcomes of offshoring relationships more fairly and realistically than a naïve salary comparison. The model is a development of models with extensions motivated by lessons learned from two empirical cases. The model is designed to consider more decision outcomes than previously suggested. In contrast to current practice focusing on economic profits from the salary differences between onshore and offshore, we focus on the differences between expected and realised outcomes by analysing strategic benefits created by options and measuring the same time-value. Finally, consequent decision situations provide a dynamic view on supporting chains of decisions.

    Corporate governance and corporate entrepreneurship in different organizational forms2017In: Handbook of research on corporate governance and entrepreneurship / [ed] Gabrielsson, Jonas, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017, p. 369-396Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In today’s society, products and services are offered in a number of different organizational forms: leisure activities are offered by not-for-profit associations or privately held firms, waste disposal services by local government corporations or administrations, manufactured products and services by listed corporations or state-owned corporations. Independent of organizational form and type of products and services offered, the long-term survival and success of the organization should benefit from a governance system that supports the exploration of novel opportunities that are in line with the purpose of the organization. As such, an intertwinement between a governance system of an organization and the exploration of novel opportunities for the advancement of the organization is suggested. Aspects of governance can be found in the literature of corporate governance (e.g., Shleifer and Vishny, 1997) and tend to have a disciplining emphasis. Aspects of the exploration of novel opportunities can be found in the literature of entrepreneurship (Covin and Lumpkin, 2011; Zahra et al., 2000) and tend to have an enabling emphasis. The starting point for an intertwinement between governance and entrepreneurship is that organizations are present to serve the interests of the holders of property rights (sometimes diffusedly termed owners, members or, in agency theory, principals) and as such, entrepreneurship should be in accordance with and aligned to these interests. Corporate governance mechanisms serve as a way to align the interests of property rights holders, for example, as in agency theory, to align the interests of the principals and the agents (Schleifer and Vischny, 1997). Therefore, corporate governance mechanisms appear to be a relevant starting point for considering the influence on entrepreneurship at the organizational level, hereafter termed corporate entrepreneurship. Such an intertwinement is moreover in line with researchers’ identification of interesting and insufficiently explored topics (e.g., Caruana et al., 2002; Corbett et al., 2013; Lacetera, 2001; Phan et al., 2009).

    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.

    ‘Wanderlost’: a participatory art and design endeavor2018In: Mediterranean cities and island communities: smart, sustainable, inclusive and resilient / [ed] Anastasia Stratigea & Dimitris Kavroudakis, Cham: Springer, 2018, p. 135-160Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Wanderlost’ addresses the growing complexity of life in today’s city spaces and the imminent challenges to the development of the urban environment. It delineates experiences gained from a project’s work, which incorporated workshops, artists’ collaborations, interactive participatory setups in public, theatre and performance spaces. It is a result of two public workshops in the end of the four-year-long period in the People Smart Sculpture (PS2) framework in the cities of Kristianstad and Copenhagen, with public events in April/May 2017 and October 2017. In this article we discuss how the project was prepared, set-up and implemented. We call this storyworld ‘Wanderlost’, developed from the project CubeX “The Journey to Abadyl”. We describe this work in the sections Collaboration, Research and Methods to show how we draw knowledge, methods and research from our work in the collaborative network PRAMnet in developing participatory concepts using a virtual city, the city of Abadyl as a backdrop. We put forward our models for engaging participation in a storyworld to imagine the world and our relations anew. We conclude that the ‘Wanderlost’ concept and project can be reused and re-situated in other contexts and environments; keeping the fundamental three formats with a digitally mediated tool, physical guides and explorative walks and a map of amusing and provoking artworks as a matrix.

    Strong Employer Brands and Employee Advocacy in Social Media: exploring the Employee Perspective2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Employer Branding activities in the competitive labour market are becoming increasingly interactive rather than being a top-down exercise. Limited resources together with new technology is playing a role in this development. Little, but some research exists on Employee Advocacy or the voluntary promotion and defence of a brand by its employees. While some researchers suggest that strong Employer Brands fosters Employee Advocacy, there seem to be little empirical support or comprehensive models incorporating the supportive factors. Earlier studies have been primarily quantitative in nature, focusing on the corporate perspective. This research adds a qualitative angle with focus on the Employee Perspective.

    The purpose with this thesis is to explore how employees in companies with strong Employer Brands practice Employee Advocacy in a Social Media context, Because of the subjectivist and abductive approach, the method was qualitative in form of interviews with employees of different companies in the service sector as primary data together with secondary data.

    The findings indicate that Employee Advocacy, although largely driven by employee commitment, in practice seem to be a rather temporary phenomenon. The dominating intrinsic motives for Employee Advocacy does not seem to translate in a Social Media Context, where nature of expression ultimately seem to depend more on external or situational factors.

    The limitations of this study are the small number of respondents made up of a convenience sample. The narrow theoretical base also limits the study to explore and broaden a phenomenon rather than developing an entirely new concept. The conceptual model could act as a basis for other studies with a combined qualitative/quantitative approach or as a basis for discussion in companies formulating their Employer Branding or Social Media strategies.

    The original value of the conducted study is a comprehensive model of shapers and some new empirical insights regarding complexities of the Employee Advocacy phenomenon.

    IFRS i ett nötskal: en kvalitativ studie om anledningar till att svenska bolag väljer IFRS frivilligt2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The International Accounting Standard, IFRS, is a very current and popular topic. The claim is based on the ever-increasing international trade which means that IFRS is well needed for harmonization. IFRS is an aid that companies, customers and other stakeholders can take part of to compare and thereby decide which partnerships they want to participate in or invest in. Earlier studies have indicated that IFRS has both advantages and disadvantages when it comes to the implementation of IFRS. The purpose of this study is to investigate the connection between the companies that choose to switch to IFRS and the reasons behind these decisions.

    The research study adopts a qualitative approach and examines the advantages and disadvantages of IFRS that are considered to exist among Swedish unlisted companies. Data for the study was collected in three different ways to strengthen the study by giving it reliability and validity. Primary data collection was conducted through semi-structured interviews, and secondly, open-answer questionnaires. Data-collection was supplemented with internal and external documents. Data triangulation was used to strengthen the reliability and validity of the data.

    The result of this study suggests that a major advantage of IFRS is that the accounting standard is applicable throughout the world which makes comparability across the country's borders possible. Furthermore, the study has also revealed that the disclosure requirements and the standards in IFRS are considered to be many and complex. Finally, the study found that if the benefits are greater than the disadvantages, the company will most likely switch accounting standards. The authors' opinion is that, based on the institutional theory and the legitimacy theory, more companies will apply IFRS voluntarily.

    What’s up AI?!: En undersökning kring människoliknande beteende hos chatbotar och dess påverkan på användarupplevelsen2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Artificiell intelligens (AI) sprider sig genom samhället och används mer och mer inom flera olika områden. Chatbotar är en populär form av social AI som använder sig av naturligt språk för att kommunicera med användare. Det finns olika åsikter kring huruvida en chatbot ska prata och bete sig människolikt eller inte. Den ena sidan argumenterar att chatbotar ska fortsätta utvecklas för att kunna simulera mänskligt beteende och intelligens, å andra sidan argumenteras att chatbotar ska vara tydliga med att de är maskiner och att det även kan vara positivt för användarupplevelsen om chatbotar inte är alltför människolika. Dessutom finns det teorier om att ett beteende som är för människolikt kan skapa obehag hos användaren. Detta examensarbete syftar till att undersöka den diskrepans som har observerats i resultaten från vetenskapliga studier för att ge indikationer på vilka faktorer som bidrar till en positiv användarupplevelse i interaktionen med chatbotar i förhållande till hur människolika de uppfattas. Resultatet visar på att det finns en stor bredd i användares preferenser för hur en chatbot bör bete sig vilket gör det svårt att nämna specifika människoliknande faktorer som är tilltalande för en större grupp användare. Om man idag vill designa en chatbot som tilltalar så många användare som möjligt bör man ge den en officiell/formell ton samt låta den svara kort, koncist och med sofistikerade ordval och välkonstruerade meningar. För att gå vidare rekommenderas bland annat att undersöka hur chatbotar kan anpassa sitt beteende efter olika användare för att skapa en positiv användarupplevelse.

    Buddy or Boss?: en kvantitativ studie på anställdas motivation i förhållande till ledarens ledarskapsstil och personlighet i privat och offentlig sektor2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Investigating leaders’ influence on private and public employee motivation is relevant given the ongoing discussion within Swedish politics regarding the privatization of public services. Furthermore, the world's increasing globalization, the development of organizations and the individual's changed work culture cause the perception of leadership and motivation being in constant change. Previous research has been characterized by focusing on leaders, but has in recent years focused more on the consequences of leadership. Consequently, the purpose of this study is to explain how leadership style and the leader’s personality affects economists' motivation, moderated by sector.

    The study has a deductive approach and quantitatively examines hypotheses about leadership style, personality and motivation through a questionnaire directed towards economists. The measuring instruments Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire, Ten-Item Personality Traits and Work Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation Scale were used to design the survey and to measure the main components. The study also examined gender, age, work experience and sector affiliation.

    The results of the study confirm previous research by demonstrating a significant relationship between transformative leadership and internal motivation, and between transactional leadership and external motivation. Furthermore, the study found a positive correlation between the traits Openness, Agreeableness and Extraversion and internal motivation, and between the traits Conscientiousness and Neuroticism and external motivation. The study however, could not confirm the effect that sector affiliation was expected to have on the relationship between leadership and motivation, since the moderating effect was either non-existing or opposite the expected. There is therefore a need for more research in the area, with focus on the sector's effect on motivation.

    The never ending story: en studie om hur banker implementerar nya regelverk2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The ability of banks to implement regulations is important in several aspects. From the Finance Inspection ́s Point of view a successful implementation is important to protect the financial system and the consumers. For the banks it is important from a cost-benefit perspective, but also to keep customers satisfied and to maintain the right to continue banking. In spite of the advantages of successful implementation, the research in this area is limited. The aim of the study is therefore to explain how banks can implement new regulations.

    To fulfil the aim of the study we have adopted a qualitative view. Two case studies have been made in which empirics has been collected through eight semi-structured interviews. The respondents were bank employees who had been highly involved in the implementation of MiFID II and MiFIR. The empirics were thereafter analyzed with guidance from the theoretical frame of reference.

    The conclusion of the study is that the banks implementation of regulations is influenced by different factors: the cooperation between banks, the aim of the bank, the corporation culture, and the structure of the organization. The analyze has been used as a start point to create a model for how banks implement regulations. Implementation can be divided into interpretation and introduction. A major challenge is to translate the regulations and integrate them into the business activity. In order to make the employee practice the regulations, different steering mechanisms are used, for example education, information and monitoring.

    Digital Design för att främja kommunikation i astmavård: Hur digitala tjänster genom individanpassad information kan komplettera och främja vårdmötet2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, 800,000 persons are estimated to live with asthma. There is an ongoing digitization work in the country, to make healthcare more accessible to patients through the use of e-services. E-services intended for asthma care have shown difficulties in promoting communication between patients and the caregiver. E-services have not been considered able to replace the personal contact that a healthcare meeting between the patient and the caregiver offers. Lack of contact with the healthcare can lead to gradual deterioration of asthma symptoms not being detected. It can also lead to a patient-perceived lack of social support, which can lead to poorer mental health for the patient. To explore how e-services for asthma care can be designed in order to, through individualized information, promote and maintain communication between patient and the healthcare provider, in support of good care and patient health, a study divided into three steps has been carried out. The study began with a literature search, was followed by an interview study with open interviews and ended in a concept-driven design process. The interviews were analyzed against previous theories and used together with these as the basis for creating a design concept intended to promote and maintain communication between the patient and the caregiver in asthma care. The design concept, "Astmaportalen” (“The Asthma Portal"), was iteratively created through a concept-driven design method which involved asthma care personnel, asthma patients and informatics students. The concept was manifested in the form of a digital prototype. Evaluations with asthma care personnel and asthma patients demonstrated that the design concept could make a useful contribution to a symbiosis of healthcare meetings on site and digital solutions.

    Disclosing strategies and business models in the integrated report:: mission (im)possible2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although various studies already exist on integrated reporting, gaps remain to be filled. The disclosure of strategies and business models (BMs) has not yet been investigated in depth in the literature. The purpose of this paper is to explore the extent to which strategies and BMs are disclosed in Integrated Reports (IRs). In addition, this paper seeks to understand the reasons for the changes in such disclosures over time. A longitudinal case study focusing on Terna, an Italian listed public utility operating in the electricity sector, is presented. Multiple methods of data collection and analysis were adopted. A content analysis based on the framework of Sukhari & De Villiers (2018) was performed on Terna’s IRs from 2011 to 2017. Interviews were conducted with several managers to integrate the data stemming from the content analysis. The paper opens up the “black box” of corporate strategy disclosures, showing how they can evolve over time. The findings reveal potential reasons for the resistance to fully communicating sensitive corporate information related to strategic goals and their implementation. Specifically, changes in key managerial roles affect the process of sharpening the disclosures in IRs.

    The dramaturgy of the audit process: challenges in the social interaction between the auditor and client2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Audit is a bilateral task where the auditors are required to socially interact with their clients during the audit process. The auditor and client may encounter different expectations that could lead to challenges in their social interaction. Thus, the purpose of this study is to explore the challenges in the social interaction between the auditor and client during the audit process. Prior literature has applied versions of agency that are implicitly based on classic contract law and virtually ignored clients as a research object. The original value of this study lies in the adoption of the dramaturgical analysis into the context of audit. This study employs a qualitative research method. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with seven real auditor-client dyads in Scania, Sweden. The findings suggest that clients are fixated on the price tag of an audit and do not consider the person delivering the audit service. This puts the auditor and client at risk as the findings suggest that the social interaction is important whereby a similarity attraction in sociodemographic space facilities the social interaction. Asset evaluations can create challenges in the social interaction which are solved with residual control stemming from ownership as well as social status. The seven auditor-client dyads in this study deals with their own unique challenges that resulted in seven prototypes. This study fills in a gap in the literature by interviewing and analyzing the auditors’ respective client expectations on one another. To fulfil each other’s diverse expectations, both must embody different roles.

    The perception on auditors’ involvement in tax evasion arrangements2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For most, offshore company setups in countries such as Panama or Ireland are tied to thoughts of illegal activities leading to tax evasion. Although in many cases these preconceptions seem to be in order, in general we seem to miss a key point in reasoning of how and why these activities are possible. The conclusions this study provides are based on material derived from qualitative interviews conducted in Sweden and are used to argue against existing research findings which point the auditor as a key player in tax evasion arrangements and a reason of tax evasion existence. In addition, we argue that issues of tax evasion are of complex nature and therefore no individual profession can be pointed to as a scapegoat, instead additional research needs be done in order to map and understand the processes that are involved in setting up a tax evasion arrangement. Furthermore, the material gathered by this research suggests that a better understanding of tax evasion arrangements might form the ground for an international collaboration such as effective common regulation against tax evasion. The interviews which this study is based upon are conducted on auditor stakeholders who have an understanding in taxation issues and who work near auditors and therefore have an adequate understanding of the auditor profession.

    Digitalisation in the banking industry and workers subjective well-being: contingency perspective2018In: International Journal of Workplace Health Management, ISSN 1753-8351, E-ISSN 1753-836X, Vol. 11, no 6, p. 411-423Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore how bankers perceive digitalisation relating to their subjective well-being. The paper seeks to further explore how this relation is contingent on the aspect of structural organisation represented by the concept of individualist/collectivist organisational culture.

    Design/methodology/approach – The study is based on the survey distributed to employees of 18 bank offices in the south of Sweden, which 161 employees answered. The analysis of the data was performed by descriptive statistics, principle component analysis, Pearson correlations, multiple linear and moderating multiple linear regression analyses.

    Findings – The study indicates that bankers’ experience digitalisation as a four-faceted construct: a tool for information management, and work optimisation, customer relation management and as a change agent. The study suggests that the use of digital tools for work optimisation has a positive relation to the work- related dimensions of subjective well-being as well as a spillover effect on the life balance and life satisfaction dimensions. It also indicates that the information management dimension has a positive relation to the life satisfaction aspect of subjective well-being. Finally, the study found that increasing the degree of collectivist organisation culture has a positive moderating effect on the relation between the use of digital tools for work optimisation and life balance and subjective well-being, respectively.

    Originality/value – The study reveals a new way of operationalising digitalisation in banks and is the first study of its type to explore the relationship between digitalisation different facets and banker subjective well-being.

    Top management teams’ shared leadership and ambidexterity: the role of management control systems2018In: International Review of Administrative Sciences, ISSN 0020-8523, E-ISSN 1461-7226Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study explores how top management teams’ shared leadership is related to organizational ambidexterity in public-sector organizations, theoretically and empirically considering how this relationship is contingent on the management control system. Using a sample of 85 Swedish municipal housing corporations, we find that shared leadership has a positive relationship with organizational ambidexterity in public-sector organizations. Moreover, increasing use of new public management control systems, based on combined reward and performance controls, positively moderates this relationship. The study also finds that traditional public management control systems, based on combined planning and administrative controls, do not moderate the relationship between top management teams’ shared leadership and organizational ambidexterity. Accordingly, this article contributes to the public and strategic management literature, as well as to managerial practice.

    New development: our hate-love relationship with publication metrics2019In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the increasing importance of publication metrics in research. Four themes are addressed: the impact of journal metrics on issues like research funding and tenure; the unintended consequences of these metrics; whether the niche domain of public sector accounting journals is threatened by these metrics; and how researchers can best deal with the mania surrounding journal metrics. This article is part of an ongoing and larger research project about the identity shift of public sector accounting researchers due to an increasing importance of publication metrics.

    The role of bonus and commission schemes in value co-creation: exploring Tensions and Conflicts in Car Dealerships2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bonus and commission schemes are common practice among firms as an incentive for the salesforce. Despite the growing body of literature on value co-creation and the practical relevance, it remains unknown how these management tools relate to each other. There is a gap in research on conflict theory but it is argued that they derive from a paradox. The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of bonus and commission schemes and the potential tensions and conflicts that are caused by different paradoxes. It shows an exploration of how these paradoxes connect to value co-creation in car dealerships from a salesforce perspective. A theoretical framework is established to review the available literature. We have conducted six in-depth interviews to pursue rich qualitative data to fully grasp the dynamics of the dealership. We have found results that indicate a number of paradoxes that exist in the dealerships. We discuss that the variety of paradoxes bring tensions and conflicts forward, but also that some of the paradoxes are harmless. We also find that our respondents implicitly support value co-creation and that long-term relationships are essential. In our discussion a model is presented to present an overview.
