    Disruption, dissolution and reconstruction: A dialectical view on inter-organizational relationship development2019In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 35, no 3, article id 101047Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper contributes to research on inter-organizational relationship dynamics by applying a dialectical approach. We analyze a situation where the relationship parties have divergent understandings of business exchange, and use a longitudinal, in-depth single case study method to investigate their interaction process. The case study focuses on the relationship between a customer and a supplier in the ferrochrome industry, using the acquisition of the supplier as the trigger of the relationship change process. The paper contributes to studies on relationship dynamics by showing how dynamics of inter-organizational relationships may result from struggles when parties’ interests and goals do not align with existing relationship arrangements. In particular, we focus on the process of (re)construction of the relationship and its linkage to the structural properties of the relationship.

    The clash of managerial and professional logics in public procurement: Implications for innovation in the health-care sector2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 78-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the enactment of public procurement and its influence on adoption and diffusion of innovation, using a case study of public procurement of a low-tech medical device innovation in Swedish healthcare. Based on interviews and documentation, the article illustrates the various perspectives of the different professions involved in the complex task of setting the requirement specification for the tender. The technology identities of the medical device (innovation) are constructed and negotiated by the actors: procurement administrators, health-care professionals and suppliers within the adoption space. Examining the enactment of the procurement process as part of the adoption space is a way to deepen our understanding of the social component within public procurement.

    Leveraging networks, capabilities and opportunities for international success: A study on returnee entrepreneurial ventures2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 51-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By integrating social capital theory with a capability-based view on performance, this paper aims to examine the extent to which returnee entrepreneurial ventures (REVs) gain international performance advantages from the founding entrepreneurs' experience with international networks. Using data on 200 Chinese REVs, the paper proposes and tests a structural model with a focus on the link between individual entrepreneurs and the subsequent development of firm capabilities. The results provide evidence that it is important that the returnee entrepreneurs have an international social network for the REV to develop an international network capability, which, in turn, mediates the effects on opportunity knowledge and the international performance of the REVs. The findings highlight the concurrent effect of the role of entrepreneurs and organizational learning in internationalization, and they provide an understanding as to the importance of the returnee-specific advantages for the international performance of these firms.

    Entrepreneurship as an art of subversion2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 124-133Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes subversion and resistance as two fundamental aspects of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial process. Taking a start in the established notion of subversive activities in art, we outline their main expressions and consequences in the entrepreneurship setting. We further address the accompanying issue of resistance, and define and illustrate its role in art and the introduction of novel business ideas. Ultimately arriving at the concept of artful entrepreneurship, we suggest the analysis of subversion and resistance as a promising but so far neglected avenue of research in entrepreneurship studies.

    Searching for big data: How incumbents explore a possible adoption of big data technologies2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 129-140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Big data is often described as a new frontier of IT-enabled competitive advantage. A limited number of exemplary firms have been used recurrently in the big data debate to serve as successful illustrations of what big data technologies can offer. These firms are well-known, data-driven organizations that often, but not always, are born digital companies. Comparatively little attention has been paid to the challenges that many incumbent organizations face when they try to explore a possible adoption of such technologies. This study investigates how incumbents handle such an exploration and what challenges they face. Drawing on a four-year qualitative field study of four large Scandinavian firms, we are able to develop a typology of how incumbents handle the exploration of and resistance to adopting big data technologies. Directly affecting the incumbents' exploration are two aspects that separate the adoption of big data technologies from that of other technologies. First, being an elusive concept, big data technologies can mean different things to different organizations. This makes the technologies difficult to explain before an investing body, while it simultaneously opens up possibilities for creative definitions. Second, big data technologies have a transformative effect on the organization of work in firms. This transformative capability will make managers wary as it might threaten their position in the firm, and it will create ripple effects, transforming other systems besides those directly connected to the technology.

    Annual general meetings - rituals of closure or ideal speech situations? A dual analysis2007In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 168-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses one of the cornerstones of corporate governance, namely the annual general meeting (AGM). The paper builds on field material collected from participating in 36 AGMs during the spring of 2004 as well as on literature on corporate governance. Since the amount of research on AGMs is sparse the research question is rather straightforward and formulated as what goes on at an AGM? The analysis of the field material builds on two separate theoretical frameworks: seeing the AGM as a ritual and an ideal speech situation. The paper notes that AGMs show several traces of an ideal speech situation but that they are also repetitive acts in which the actors seek jointly to support the closing of the accounting year.

    Abstract [en]

    Over the past century, management education has expanded considerably, and it is important that management and organization scholars and practitioners should understand the implications of this development. With this in mind the present paper looks at management education from several perspectives. First, it discusses the characteristics of education in general and of management education in particular. Second, it provides a brief summary of the institutional development of management education, particularly in the United States and Europe. Third, the paper indicates professional exchanges and quality assessments as forces for convergence, and provides evidence of such convergence. Finally, some conclusions are offered and some possibilities are discussed regarding the future development of management education.

    The recruitment of university top leaders: Politics, communities and markets in interaction2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 30, no 3, p. 332-343Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In modern society academic institutions attract an increasing amount of attention as providers of education and innovation. While such institutions were earlier largely governed by the academic community itself, they are nowadays increasingly subject to external forces. This paper therefore focuses on the changing character of the interaction between the academic community, politics and markets as it is manifested in the recruitment of Vice-Chancellors. It is hypothesized that these recruitments can be expected to have changed - earlier and more noticeably among young institutions - towards increasing (1) external recruitments, (2) emphasis on managerial rather than academic credentials, (3) recruitments from the natural and life sciences, (4) recruitments of females, and (5) turnover. The hypotheses are confronted with data regarding the 165 recruitments of VCs that have occurred in the Swedish universities and university colleges since the 1960s. The analysis lends support to the hypotheses.

    MNC headquarters’ role in subsidiaries’ value-creating activities: A problem of rationality or radical uncertainty2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 421-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine the role of headquarters (HQ) in the value-creating processes of sub-units in the multinational corporation, and claim that this role is dependent on how the knowledge situation of HQ is conceptualized. Two perspectives on the role of HQ are considered: “rationality” and “radical uncertainty”. We find that there are clear differences between the two perspectives concerning the possibility of HQ to shape future innovation projects, monitor these projects and contribute with own expertise. In general the first perspective is rather optimistic about these possibilities, while the second perspective tells us that HQ involvement in the value-creating processes often becomes dysfunctional. The paper ends by indicating how the theoretical conflict between the two perspectives can be addressed by empirical research.

    Newcomers conserving the old: Transformation processes in the field of news journalism2012In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 65-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As new actors become online news producers in a changing media landscape, questions about field transformation are raised. This paper adds to institutional theory on how novel actors are incorporated into mature organizational fields and change structures of domination. We explore online news flow in the Swedish media and blogosphere about an executive remuneration program. The findings demonstrate that novel actors are incorporated into the field of news journalism, as key actors with dominant positions invite them to participate. Newcomers remain peripheral and lack the capacity to alter field positions. Structures of domination are not altered; instead, positions of key field actors are strengthened. Newcomers in mature fields serve as forces not only for transformation, but also conservation.

    Inquiring into arresting moments over time: Towards an understanding of stability within change2016In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 32, no 3, p. 142-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to contribute to current knowledge about special moments – what is referred to as “arresting moments” – when something unexpected spontaneously occurs, by exploring how such moments are part of a dialogic flow taking place over time. Based on a collaborative study that has been going on for 15 years and Bakhtin’s work on dialogic forces, the paper contributes with a conceptualization of “stability within change,” which shows how arresting moments not only create newness but also a sense of stability; a strong feeling of knowing how to meet the future and thereby how to move on here and now. Thus, it is not a question of stability or change, but rather an intertwined manifold of opposing forces of stability within change. Implications for practice and research are elaborated upon.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the managing of high-tech projects in complex and dynamic settings. Building on recent developments in organization theory and knowledge management, we focus on the importance of understanding the ways in which project-centered activities are shaped in time and space, both in the organization itself and in a wider context embracing customers, consultants and suppliers. A longitudinal case study including semi-structured interviews, observations and secondary data wilt substantiate our findings. The study offers both theoretical and practical insights suggesting that projects are exposed to a varying degree of complexity and dynamics, calling for different managerial approaches. The analysis shows that boundary spanning has many dimensions that have to be considered in the management of projects in space and time. The article concludes by suggesting seven analytical categories for analyzing and understanding projects in their spatial and temporal contexts.

    Climate social science: Any future for ‘blue sky research’ in management studies?2015In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 147-157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The environmental humanities call for post-disciplinary approaches to meet the vexing problem of climate change. However, scholars have not scrutinised how management and organisation studies (MOS) could contribute to such an endeavour. This research note explores common surfaces of contact between the natural and social sciences, with the goal of unravelling the legitimate positions to speak from about climate change. The findings suggest that scholars in MOS are exposed to ecological reasoning, which undergirds underdog heroism, disciplinary confusion and a debasement of political subjectivity. As a counter strategy, I suggest that we affirm a ‘blue-sky research’ approach that would support alternative research paths and a more traditional will to know–—to advance ‘climate social science’.

    A look at the bright side of multicultural team diversity2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 439-447Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Current research on multicultural teams tends to exhibit a bias towards studying the negative effects of team diversity more than the positive. This negative bias has limited our understanding of the conditions that promote the benefits of diversity and of the mechanisms that foster these benefits. In this article, we highlight a complementary perspective, namely the idea that cultural diversity and cultural differences can be an asset rather than a liability. This perspective has been present in the practitioner and anecdotal literature, but has thus far not received much rigorous research attention. Using a lens of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS), we draw upon recent research on cultural diversity in teams to explore the positive aspects of cross-cultural dynamics in teams and identify some of the processes underlying these effects in more rigorous ways, proposing a future research agenda.

    Compatibility and unlearning in knowledge transfer in mergers and acquisitions2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 448-456Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite wide recognition of the central role of knowledge and its transfer, extant research has focused much on some important aspects of knowledge transfer and paid little attention to others. We focus on two underexplored issues in the knowledge transfer literature, namely: (a) compatibility of new knowledge with recipients’ needs, interpretations of its past experiences and its existing norms, and (b) organizational unlearning, which moderates the relationship between compatibility and extent of successful knowledge transfer. We examine different types and dimensions of knowledge compatibility and organizational unlearning within our proposed knowledge transfer process framework. We situate our discussion primarily within knowledge transfer in cross-border mergers and acquisitions. Based on the proposed model, we also offer propositions future research can test.

    Intersectionality as a new perspective in international business research2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 457-466Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using the intersectionality perspective as a theoretical lens in the study of the multinational company (MNC) – with its spatial separation of subunits, language and cultural diversity, organizational complexity, and multiplicity of activity environments – will yield exciting and novel possibilities for theory creation. A prime area of study deals with career patterns, i.e., who ‘makes it to the top’ in MNCs. Especially interesting are the effects of social interaction shaped in the interplay between MNCs’ talent identification and individuals’ identification processes. We discuss empirical research strategies for applying the intersectionality perspective, and managerial implications related to raising intersectionality awareness.
