    Informationsvärdet i delårsrapporter: En studie om hur och varför delårsrapporter spelar roll i investeringsbeslutet för svenska förvaltare2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Börsnoterade aktiebolag i Sverige lämnar i regel delårsredogörelser över företagets prestationer och annan information. Användare av informationen inkluderar bland annat professionella förvaltare som ska ta till sig och bearbeta informationen, vilket sedermera ska leda fram till ett beslut om att investera i företaget eller inte. 

    Denna studie syftar därmed att undersöka vilken information i delårsrapporterna som anses vara relevant och varför. Vi genomför fem semistrukturerade intervjuer med professionella förvaltare i Sverige och finner en övervägande positiv syn på delårsrapporter och dess innehåll. Vi finner att en tydlig och enkel presentation av innehållet föredras, både när de kommer till redovisning av kvantitativ data men även avseende innehållet i kvalitativa delar. I analysen är VD-ordet och en beskrivning av framtidsutsikterna viktigt samt användningen av traditionella nyckeltal såsom exempelvis p/e-talet. Delade meningar råder kring mer omfattande värderingsmodeller såsom kassaflödesvärderingar men överlag föreligger en gemensam syn att helhetsbilden är det centrala i analysen.

    Jag är mitt arbete: En undersökning om identitet inom Employer Branding2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En av de senaste trenderna inom Employer Branding är att arbetstagare vill kunna identifierasig med sin arbetsgivare. I ett allt mer hårdnande arbetsklimat är det viktigt att arbetsgivareförstår vad potentiella arbetstagare efterfrågar, för att öka förutsättningarna att skapalångsiktigt hållbara relationer och minska risken för ohälsa. Studien syftar till att undersökahur ekonomistudenter kan ta ställning till huruvida de vill identifiera sig med en potentiellarbetsgivare. Detta genom att se vilka aspekter och vilken typ av information som är avgörande för deras ställningstagande. För att kunna göra detta har 12 ekonomistudenterintervjuats och studien bygger på socialkonstruktivismens definition av identitet och densenaste forskningen inom Employer Branding. Resultatet visar att kultur,utvecklingsmöjligheter och arbetsgivarens rykte är av stor betydelse och studenterna önskaren mer transparent och nyanserad bild av arbetsgivaren. De lägger stor vikt vid Word-of-Mouth och det personliga mötet med befintliga arbetstagare i en organisation.

    Västgård - en upplevelse värd att minnas?2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det blir allt vanligare att svenska lantbrukare kompletterar sin traditionella sysselsättning med ytterligare verksamheter. Många väljer att satsa på turism, och det märks en ökad efterfrågan på just landsbygdsturism, vilket enligt Lantbrukarnas Riksförbund är det den snabbast växande turismgrenen i Sverige. Jag har i denna uppsats valt att undersöka hur ett specifikt lantbruksföretag, närmare bestämt Västgård i byn Kall i Jämtland, kan utveckla sin satsning på turism som sidoverksamhet. Med hjälp av teorier inom området har jag undersökt hur gården kan förbättra sitt erbjudande till turister genom att identifiera och utveckla de värden som finns, samt att bli mer medvetna om vilka kunderna är och vad de vill ha.

    Teorierna jag tagit del av betonar vikten av att skapa ett helhetserbjudande för att öka värdet på upplevelsen i kundens ögon. En mängd faktorer såsom bland annat miljö, personal och andra turister väger in i en turists bedömning av upplevelsen, och alla dessa delar är viktiga för att bilda ett gott helhetsintryck. Genom att intervjua en anställd på Lantbrukarnas Riksförbund med specialkunskaper inom området affärsutveckling av lantbruksföretag fick jag ökad kunskap inom ämnet. Jag intervjuade Västgårds ägare för att informera mig om hur situationen på gården ser ut i dagsläget och utifrån dessa förutsättningar kunna tillämpa teorierna och ge rekommendationer.

    Med stöd i teorierna rekommenderar jag Västgårds ägare att satsa på ett relativt exklusivt helhetserbjudande där alla aktiviteter ingår för den som önskar. Jag anser också att det finns grund för att nå en internationell marknad på ett tidigt stadium och att ett utökat regionalt samarbete är något som både bygden och företaget skulle tjäna på.

    En kopp kaffe eller ett personlighetstest?: - En studie av Skanskas rekryteringsprocess av expatriater2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur kan det gå till när ett stort multinationellt företag väljer vilka de ska skicka ut i världen på expatriering? Vi valde att intervjua två anställda på Skanska för att få insikt i hur deras rekryteringsprocess går till. Forskning inom området visar att företag ofta har ett relativt informellt tillvägagångssätt, något teoretikerna anser öka risken för misslyckanden. Istället rekommenderar de att företagen bör tillämpa en mer utarbetad policy, där man jämför kandidaten mot en mängd kriterier som har visat sig positiva i samband med utlandsuppdrag. Skanska har traditionellt haft just en informell process och låtit rekryterarens individuella preferenser vara avgörande för beslutet, men utvecklingen har gått mot en mer medvetet styrd urvalsprocess. Den generella trenden för företag världen över är att expatrieringen minskar, och att man istället förlitar sig på lokal arbetskraft och kallar in ytterligare kompetens vid behov. Vi kan konstatera att Skanskas rekryteringsprocess skiljer sig en del från de tillvägagångssätt teorierna föreslår. Trots att man på företaget inte vägt in alla de egenskaper forskarna anser viktiga, har man ändå haft få misslyckade rekryteringar. Detta tyder på att Skanskas informella metod, där känslan för vilken person som är rätt för uppdraget är avgörande, ändå har fungerat bra.

    The effect of patent enforcement strength and FDI on economic growth2016In: Multinational Business Review, ISSN 1525-383X, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 334-353Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - This paper aims to study the effects of the strength of patent enforcement on economic growth following the signing of the agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and the role of inward foreign direct investment (FDI) flows in mediating and enhancing this relationship. Design/methodology/approach - Following a generalized method of moments methodology, use is made of a new longitudinal index measuring the strength of enforcement-related aspects of patent systems. Findings - Stronger levels of patent enforcement have a significant positive effect on the economic growth of both developed and developing countries. Importantly, inward FDI flows have a mediating role in positively boosting this effect for all countries and particularly for developed countries. Originality/value - This is the first empirical study of the role of the strength of patent enforcement ("law in action") in stimulating economic growth, as previous empirical studies have focused on the effect of the strength of patent law protection ("law on the books"). The failure in the past to allow for "law in action" was mainly due to the lack of available data that could proxy for the strength of patent enforcement levels in a country. This study utilizes a newly published, longitudinal index that captures the strength of the enforcement-related aspects of patent systems.

    Monetary Policy and Swedish Unemployment Fluctuations2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A widely spread belief among economists is that monetary policy has relatively short-lived effects on real variables such as unemployment. Previous studies indicate that monetary policy affects the output gap only at business cycle frequencies, but the effects on unemployment may well be more persistent in countries with highly regulated labor markets. We study the Swedish experience of unemployment and monetary policy. Using a structural VAR we find that around 30 percent of the fluctuations in unemployment are caused by shocks to monetary policy. The effects are also quite persistent. In the preferred model, almost 30 percent of the maximum effect of a shock still remains after ten years.

    Cointegration And The Stabilizing Role Of Exchange Rates2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We show that empirical results concerning the behavior of áoating exchange rates di§er between otherwise identical cointegrated and non-cointegrated VAR models. In particular, virtually all ten-year movements in nominal exchange rates are due to fundamental supply and demand shocks when long run equilibrium relationships between the levels of the variables are included in the empirical speciÖcation. Another major di§erence between the models with the opposite im- plication for the shock creation versus shock absorption debate is that non-fundamental exchange rate shocks have much larger e§ects on output and ináation in the cointegrated models. Finally, impulse re- sponse functions in the Örst di§erence speciÖcation die out within a year whereas adjustment to long run equilibrium continues for up to ten years in the cointegrated models. Hence a correct speciÖcation of the long-run equilibrium dynamics of exchange rates is essential for capturing also short-run behavior of exchange rates.

    Exchange Rates and Asymmetric Shocks in Small Open Economies2005Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    If floating exchange rates stabilize shocks rather than create shocks, a country that joins a monetary union or fixes its exchange rate looses a stabilizing mechanism. We use a first difference structural VAR on trade weighted macroeconomic data to study the role of floating ex- change rates for five "small open economies" with inflation targets. By including both domestic and foreign variables and using a combination of long and short-run restrictions, we identify asymmetric shocks more carefully than previous studies. Only in Sweden and Canada does the nominal exchange rate appreciate significantly in response to asym- metric demand shocks and depreciate to asymmetric supply shocks. Most exchange rate movements are caused by speculation and are not responses to fundamental shocks. However, these exchange rate shocks have negligible effects on output and inflation. Our findings indicate that exchange rates are neither stabilizing nor destabilizing but may be loosely characterized as disconnected from the rest of the economy.

    Exchange rates and asymmetric shocks in small open economies2008In: Empirical Economics, ISSN 0377-7332, E-ISSN 1435-8921, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 527-541Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We study the stabilizing properties of exchange rates in five small open economies during to periods of floating exchange rates and inflation targeting. In the cases of Sweden and Canada, the nominal exchange rates behave in a stabilizing manner. Most exchange rate movements emanate from the exchange rate itself and are hence not responses to fundamental shocks. However, these non-fundamental shocks have only negligible effects on output and inflation. Our findings indicate that exchange rates display some stabilizing properties but can mainly be characterized as disconnected from the rest of the economy.

    Exchange rates and long-term bonds2002Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Tentative evidence suggests that the empirical failure of uncovered interest parity (UIP) is confined to short-term interest rates. Tests of UIP for long-term interest rates are however hampered by various data problems. By focusing on short investments in long-term bonds, these data problems can be avoided. We study the relationship between the US dollar - Deutsch Mark exchange rate and German and American bond rates. The hypothesis that expected returns to investments in bonds denominated in the two currencies are equal cannot be rejected. This result is not simply due to low power as the ß-coefficients are close to unity. For the corresponding short-term interest rates, the typical finding of a large and significantly negative ß-coefficient is confirmed.

    Can a time-varying equilibrium real interest rate explain the excess sensitivity puzzle?2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The strong response of long-term interest rates to macroeconomic shocks has typically been explained in terms of informational asymme- tries between the central bank and private agents. The standard mod- els assume that the equilibrium real interest rate is constant over time and independent of structural shocks. We incorporate time-variation in the equilibrium real interest rate as function of structural shocks to e.g. productivity and demand. This extended model implies that forward interest rates at long horizons move about 40 basis points as the short-term interest rate increases one percentage point. In terms of regressions of changes in long-term interest rates on changes in the short-term interest rate, including a time-varying equilibrium real in- terest rate explains about half of the puzzle.

    Cost stickiness in Sweden2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the cost stickiness phenomenon and how it is influenced by macroeconomic conditions and firm characteristics in Sweden. Cost stickiness refers to asymmetric cost behavior, where the cost increase that accompanies a rise in economic activities exceeds the cost decrease resulting from an equivalent fall in economic activities. Quantitative method and multiple regression analyses are applied to analyze the sample that consists of 4080 firm-year observations from 229 publicly listed companies in Nasdaq Stockholm AB from 2008 to 2019. This paper confirms the existence of the cost stickiness phenomenon in Sweden using revenue and the total selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) cost variables. Moreover, the study shows no significant impact of macroeconomic conditions on cost stickiness. Furthermore, the degree of cost stickiness increases with higher fixed asset intensity and lower employee and debt intensities.

    Argument för aktiebaserade incitamentsprogram: en förklaringsmodell2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns mycket forskning och kritik om hur effektiva aktiebaserade incitamentsprogram är för företags prestation, trots det ökar implementeringen av dessa. Därför är syftet med denna studie att undersöka vilka argument företag använder för aktiebaserade incitamentsprogram och att utforma en förklaringsmodell. I litteraturgenomgången tas fem argument upp baserat på tidigare studier vilka är skapa målkongruens, attrahera och behålla personal, öka arbetsinsatsen, öka risktagandet samt efterlikna andra företag. För att ta reda på vilka argument som finns har intervjuer utförts på åtta företag med personer som är med och tar fram förslag till aktiebaserade incitamentsprogram. Resultatet visar att de vanligaste argumenten är att skapa målkongruens och attrahera och behålla personal, men också att företag till hög grad använder programmen för att andra företag gör det. Vidare uppkom även nya argument vilka är hålla nere fasta lönekostnader, öka engagemanget och belöna prestation. Förklaringsmodellen presenterar sedan argumentens samband och styrka till aktiebaserade incitamentsprogram

    Mixed logit estimation of the value of travel time1998Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we use mixed logit specifications to allow parameters to vary in the population when estimating the value of time for long-distance car travel. Our main conclusion is that the estimated value of time is very sensitive to how the model is specified: we find that it is significantly lower when the coefficients are assumed to be normally distributed in the population, as compared to the traditional case when they are treated as fixed. In our most richly parameterised model, we find a median value of time of 57 SEK per hour, with the major part of the mass of the value of time distribution closely centred around the median value. The corresponding figure when the parameters are treated as fixed is 89 SEK per hour. Furthermore, our finding that the ratio of coefficients in a mixed logit specification differ significantly from the ones in a traditional logit specification is contrary to the results obtained by Brownstone & Train (1996) and Train (1997). Whether the ratios will differ or not depends on the model and the data generating process at hand.

    Share repurchases and abnormal returns2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we examine abnormal returns during active repurchasing programs and if the

    intensity of repurchasing programs impacts the returns. Through the Jensen’s Alpha approach

    our findings show us that positive abnormal returns are experienced by repurchasing firms

    under our study period that ranges from 2010 to 2019. The results show us that during active

    repurchasing programs companies have showed positive average annual abnormal returns

    ranging from 1,8% to 6%. We also find that the intensity of share repurchases does not have a

    statistically significant effect on the given abnormal returns. However, our results indicate

    that the abnormal returns are higher when the repurchases occurred, rather than when they are

    authorized.

    Hur påverkar inkomstchocker det colombianska inbördeskriget?: En replikationsstudie med heroinindustrin i fokus2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Exogena prischocker på kaffe intensifierar konflikterna i det colombianska inbördeskriget dåfler ansluter sig till de stridande grupperna när kaffepriset sjunker. Det visar enuppmärksammad artikel av Dube och Vargas (2012) som även kontrollerar för alternativamekanismer och utesluter att sambandet mellan kaffepris och konflikt går genom ökadkokaodling . Vi menar att studien har en stor svaghet då den 1 inte undersökersubstitutionseffekter mer ingående. Vi argumenterar för att ökad vallmoproduktion2 är denalternativa mekanism som mest sannolikt kan påverka sambandet och således är mest centralatt kontrollera för. Vår studie replikerar Dube och Vargas resultat och kompletterar det meden grundlig kontroll för vallmo. Vi finner ett positivt samband mellan kaffepris ochvallmoodling vilket bäst förklaras med en generell inkomsteffekt där det odlas mer av allt dåkaffepriset stiger. Omvänt innebär resultatet att det odlas mindre vallmo då kaffeprisetsjunker vilket ger stöd åt Dube och Vargas artikel. Vi kan således med större säkerhet säga attexogena prischocker på kaffe påverkar konfliktnivåerna därför att fler ansluter sig till destridande grupperna då kaffepriset sjunker.

    Kvinnor i bolagsstyrelser: Hur påverkar det risk?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Andelen kvinnor inom styrelser har de senaste åren blivit en högaktuell fråga i samband med arbetet för jämställdhet i näringslivet. Kvinnor anses generellt ha en lägre riskvilja än män. Samtidigt visar forskning inom företagsekonomi att riskaversion skiljer sig beroende på omgivning. Syftet med denna uppsats är att studera vilken påverkan andelen kvinnor i bolagsstyrelser har på total risk hos företagen. Undersökningen genomförs med en kvantitativ metod där en multipel regressionsanalys utförs på ett datamaterial av 927 svenska bolag noterade på Nasdaq OMX Stockholm för perioden år 2010 till 2014. Resultatet av undersökningen påvisar ett statistiskt signifikant och negativt samband mellan andelen kvinnor i styrelser och total risk.

    Innovation Gene: the relationship between financial performance and communicating innovation in mission statement2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Mission statement is important to companies, especially as a strategic communication tool with stakeholders. Innovation is also important to companies and has its implications on performance. This study examines the relationship between financial performance and explicitly communicating innovation in mission statement. The study uses a quantitative approach with logistic regression to test empirical hypotheses related to revenues, profits, change in assets and market value, and their relationship with explicitly communicating innovation in mission statements. The conclusion is that among all the financial performance indicators considered, only market value represents a strong and significant result, indicating a positive relationship with explicitly communicating innovation.

    När flygplan kraschar: en eventstudie om marknadens reaktion2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie undersöker huruvida den faktiska avkastningen för ett flygbolags aktie skiljer sig från den förväntade avkastningen i samband med att ett av flygbolagets plan kraschar. För att undersöka förekomsten av abnormal avkastning genomförs en eventstudie där 71 flygplanskrascher mellan åren 1980 till och med 2018 undersöks. Resultatet visar att det förekommer en genomsnittlig kumulativ avvikelseavkastning på -4,65% dagen då kraschen sker inklusive nästkommande dag, vilken är statistiskt signifikant på 1%. Vidare har antalet dödsfall som en flygplanskrasch orsakar en statistiskt signifikant påverkan på sambandet med styrkan 1%, där fler dödsfall resulterar i en större negativ kumulativ abnormal avkastning.

    Hedging Oil Prices: a case study on Gotlandsbolaget2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the increase of volatility in financial markets and leading to financial risk and corporate failures, organizations are showing keen interest in managing financial risk, one of the most commonly used technique to minimize financial risk is hedging. Hedging of oil prices has also become a common practice especially in shipping. Financial risk managers are busy in saving the industries from expected risk and volatility in oil prices through hedging. Therefore we have decided to look into shipping industry and specifically to study the hedging oil prices with respect to a case study on Gotlandsbolaget.Our case study will also focus on the relationship between oil and ticket price ratios in Gotlandsbolaget, TT Line and Adria Ferries Ltd. In order to collect empirical data we have done interviews with the companies and worked closely with Destination Gotland and Nordea bank.The results of the study show that Gotlandsbolaget hedge oil prices to protect themselves from volatility of oil prices. Regression analysis showed that there is a positive relationship between ticket prices and oil prices in the companies operating in Sweden while a relatively weaker relationship exists for the Adria Ferries Ltd. This study will help the shipping companies, who are either new in hedging or want to minimize and avert the risk and volatility in oil prices through hedging.

    The delicate balance of Internet banking and bricks and mortar offices: a study on bank services offered in Visby2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Internet banking has an impact on banking performance as well as customer’s daily life. Customers are getting more used to use Internet banking services because the Internet is so popular and common available, it is more convenient and comfortable for customers to use banking services on the Internet. Hereby Internet banking also helps to improve banking service and increasing banks profitability by reducing costs. It also increases the overall value of the banks services by providing convenience, reliable, faster, cheaper services. The purpose of study is to find out which services customer prefers to execute the Internet bank and which services customers prefer to execute through branch office and based on this, what combination of services are desirable for banks customers in Visby. Finding shows that young and educated people are more frequently users of Internet banking for balance inquiry and for viewing the transaction history of his/her account. For some services customers prefer to visit branch office when opining a new account, deposit money, insurances service and loan activities. Banks encourage their customers to use online services but there is need that there are some activities that customer must go to the branch office.

    Building absorptive capacity through firm openess in a context of a less open country2019In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 83, p. 81-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We explore the roles that potential and realized absorptive capacity play in enhancing firm performance, and examine external knowledge search strategies as antecedents of absorptive capacity. In this way, we endeavor to open the black box that sits between external knowledge search and performance, and suggest that the establishment of deep and broad relationships with external sources has differing impacts on potential and realized absorptive capacity for the firm. We argue that distinguishing clearly between potential and realized absorptive capacity may provide new insights into understanding why some companies are more successful than others at benefiting from external knowledge. A sample of 171 suppliers operating in the Iranian automotive industry is used to test the proposed theoretical model, through a two-stage least squares approach. Surprisingly, our results indicate that only the firm's capability to acquire and assimilate new ideas from the external environment (potential absorptive capacity) is related to performance for these firms operating in Iran, which been isolated from global markets due to international sanctions. Our findings emphasize the notion that potential and realized absorptive capacity represent distinct capabilities, with different antecedents and different impacts on firm performance.

    Where to search for process innovations? The mediating role of absorptive capacity and its impact on process innovation2019In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 82, p. 199-212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While the potential of open innovation to develop product-related improvements through the use of external knowledge sources is undeniable, our understanding of how firms become process innovators remains limited. Distinguishing between product and process innovation is important, as insights gleaned from investigating product innovation may not relate directly to the study of process innovation. This study provides new insight into open innovation and absorptive capacity by proposing the mediating role of absorptive capacity – potential and realized – on the relationship between knowledge search from external sources and process-related innovation activities. We test our model using a sample of 171 auto component suppliers in Iran, and find evidence that the learning effects of external scanning increase when a firm learns how to better manage external searches in terms of external absorptive capacity routines. Our results indicate that, while knowledge search from value chain partners is related to process innovation, knowledge search from universities and other research organizations is not, and that potential absorptive capacity mediates the relationship between external knowledge search and process innovation. These findings shed further light on the relationship between a firm’s openness and its process innovation.

    A pragmatist perspective on front-end project organizing: The case of refurbishment of the Palace of Westminster2022In: International Journal of Project Management, ISSN 0263-7863, E-ISSN 1873-4634, Vol. 40, no 7, p. 763-777Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how actors organized collective efforts to initiate the project and navigated their way forward, even though the ultimate outcome was not clearly defined. To address this question, we explore the potential of the philosophical tradition of pragmatism. This approach foregrounds duality, recursiveness and temporality of collective activities and offers a new and compelling way to understand and address the challenges actors face in organizing and managing the front-end. By accounting for both the situatedness of actions in the wider social and relational contexts, and by connecting the flow of present experience to the interpretations of the past and future, pragmatism holds the potential for integrating theory the actuality of lived experience in its continuous unfolding while accounting for actors’ transformative agency. By drawing on a real-time longitudinal study of conception of the program of the Restoration and Renewal (R&R) of the Palace of Westminster, we show how participants face the challenge of understanding and managing complex tensions that continually arise due to a duality of mobilization (between seeking consensus and expanding divergent possibilities) and a duality of transformation (between forming a bold vision of the future and translating abstract goals into concrete actions). To tackle the challenges, participants create strategic accounts that are stable enough to be practically feasible in current circumstances, but also sufficiently adaptable to pursue future possibilities in ways that challenge prevailing approaches. By showing how participants cope with these challenges by creating spaces of experimentation and constructing flexible boundaries this study contributes to the literature on management of project's front-end.

    Consistent Inconsistency: The Role of Tension in Explaining Change in Interorganizational Relationships2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis commences with the notion that interorganizational exchange relationships are dynamic to an unprecedented degree. It is argued that, global production networks have integrated firms into interdependent structures that blur traditional geographical and organizational boundaries. It is also true that the same networks bring together companies with diverse socio-cultural and economic backgrounds. Thus, the thesis focuses on the complexity of the contemporary international business landscape. The purpose of the work performed was to understand the process of change in interorganizational relationships under these complexities.

    Through a qualitative study of two main cases and a pilot study, the thesis investigates the networking behavior and the relationship dynamics between multinational companies from Sweden and Turkey, operating in Turkish and Swedish markets, respectively. By examining how firms create, maintain, dissolve and reconstruct their relationships, the thesis contributes to problematizing some of the assumptions that are commonly taken for granted, but which underpin several studies of interorganizational relationship dynamics. The findings illustrate that as recent trends such as cross-border acquisitions frequently perturb the contexts within which firms are embedded, the impact might be favorable for some actors, while others might push for new and different ‘directions’, finding the existing relational arrangements and resource structures counter to their future goals. Yet, the actions of parties are constrained by the structural position in which they find themselves. Thus, the development of an exchange relationship involves multiple processes, often inconsistent with one another, thereby disturbing the stability of the relationship.

    Through the aggregation of each paper’s contribution, the “Thesis Summary” offers a wide perspective of the relationship dynamics. By incorporating both teleological and dialectical views, the framework proposed captures both the actions undertaken by individual firms to make change, and the structural forces both promoting and opposing change. Ultimately, the thesis offers a framework for investigating the impact of complexity on change in interorganizational relationships, opening doors to an improved understanding of the significance divergent perspectives and disruptive experiences have on relationship change.

    How does uncertainty impact opportunity development in internationalization?2018In: International Business Review, ISSN 0969-5931, E-ISSN 1873-6149, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 161-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The features of the internationalization of emerging market multinational companies (EMNCs) create a laboratory for extending theory. In this paper, we argue that a high level of asymmetry between prior knowledge and a non-incremental commitment, such as an acquisition, lies at the core of understanding these types of internationalization processes. Our proposed theoretical view is that while some uncertainties in opportunity development are known to the firms and can be managed by available knowledge, disruptive commitments can result in complexes of unstable and unilineal dynamics that bring about unexpected and hence unforeseeable uncertainties. These uncertainties may be a source of future unintended consequences that will have an impact on the firm as the internationalization process unfolds. This view is used for analysis of a longitudinal case study concerning the acquisition of a Swedish firm, Vargon Alloys, by the Turkish corporation Yildirim Group, focusing on the opportunity discovery and exploitation period between 2008 and 2013. By dividing uncertainty into two types (foreseeable and unforeseeable) and analysing the hidden problems that emerged after the sudden fusion of the two networks, the study nuances understanding of the emergent and non-orderly nature of the internationalization process as it unfolds. From a process point of view, the study may aid deeper understanding of complications when discovering and exploiting opportunities.

    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.

    Vad påverkar val och preferenser vid livsmedelsinköp bland personer med syrisk bakgrund i Sverige?2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Considering increasing globalization and migration, Sweden has become home to a significant Syrian population. Despite this group's growing presence, their needs and preferences have not received adequate attention from supermarket chains.This study aims to explore factors that most influence consumer behavior and food preferences among individuals of Syrian background in Sweden. The findings will provide marketers and producers operating within the food industry a better understanding of this group, thereby enabling them to tailor their product range and marketing to satisfy their needs and preferences.The study is based on theories dealing with consumer behavior, ethnic identity, price, and nostalgia consumption. These theories help us understand and identify the most critical factors for Syrian consumers in Sweden concerning their food purchase choices and preferences. We used a qualitative research design, collecting empirical material through semi-structured interviews with ten consumers of Syrian background residing in Sweden. We then analyzed the data using thematic analysis.The results indicate that cultural factors, religious values, price and quality awareness, family influence, and health consciousness are the primary determinants of food choices for Syrian consumers in Sweden.
