Abstract [en]

There is a wide range of media prizes that are awarded to businesses, business leaders and entrepreneurs. This is easily verified by a quick browse of the latest editions of the business press such as Fortune, Management Today, Financial Times or The Economist. Although the awarding of prizes to organizations and their representatives is a highly visible phenomenon the analysis of such prizes has hitherto been scant. What role do media prizes play in shaping the view of businesses and organizations? The architecture of a prize and its ensuing winners, distils a concentrated formula of what is commendable for business corporations at a given time. Thus such prizes and awards present a unique opportunity to study the production of norms and ideals for corporate management. Following contemporary research on media and organizations we know that the contexts were these prizes are awarded and reported on rely on the interactions of many organizations, where the initiatives and actions of mass media increasingly get tied into the activities and actions of organizations. In a dialectic relationship between media and business, it is clear that corporations are highly involved in shaping not only their brands and their images, but also the norms and ideals for good business. It has even been argued that it is useful to see the contemporary business enterprises as “edited corporations”, where governance is intimately tied to communication processes and where corporations are shaped in part by images and ideals that are circulated around them. Studying prizes thus allows a further investigation of such management ideals; in particular the processes that bring these ideals into being and allow them spread to wide audiences in and around organizations.

Abstract [en]

In this article empirical research on post-investment activities of business angels is reviewed and conceptualized as five distinct governance processes: boundary spanning, structuring, leadership, doing, and monitoring. These processes have the potential to reduce exposure to relational risk and market risk. The identification of these governance processes also contributes towards understanding the social processes of business angels’ post investment involvement. In particular, it is shown how the recognition of the cognitive/institutional dimension opens up for new questions about post-investment involvement. Finally it is proposed that venture performance can be enhanced in practice if business angels and venture members develop skills connected with the governance processes.

Abstract [en]

The relations between the media and their corporate sources have become increasingly routinized and organized. In contrast to traditional perspectives on news making this article introduces an embeddedness perspective on business journalism and reports on the findings from a study of the way the major Swedish corporations and financial analysts contribute to and participate in the production of business news. Through a qualitative analysis of two cases we show that such production is organized and carried out in a stream of continuous and well-coordinated activities and structured interaction settings – that is, in a system of recursive mediation. Our analysis further illustrates how this system is maintained through the technological, relational and situational embeddedness of the activities and settings. Through our studies we show how news production has developed outside the journalistic domain. One implication of our findings is that the possibility of individual actors influencing the content of the news is likely to be limited. Instead, it is the actors’ ability to join the organizational and technological settings in which news material is generated that gives them the opportunity to actively participate in news production.
