    Abstract [eo]

    Economic globalization and competitiveness between nations and organizations have stimulated theoretical reflection and reorientation of economic, environmental and social aspects in search of new processes and practices conductive to strengthening sustainability. The reflections produced in this book are contributions to the understanding and action in the fields of politics and management. Together, they highlight the discontinuities and misalignments, the paradoxes, uncertainties and ambiguities of agencies and courses of action-oriented regulation and sustainability.

    In search of a creative space: A conceptual framework of synthesizing paradoxes2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine paradox in innovating organizations and their ability to deal with the ensuing paradoxical tensions. Paradoxes are defined as contradictory yet interrelated organizational elements that exist simultaneously where the resulting tension persists overtime. With the aim of increasing understanding of what constitute paradoxes, this paper provides a conceptual framework from which paradoxical tensions can be approached and managed. Specifically, this paper conceptually maps a way to achieve a synthesis of paradoxical tensions via design thinking. Synthesis is said to occur when competing demands are simultaneously fulfilled and in their full strength. More so, synthesis is construed to constitute two options to choose from, but constructing a third. In this paper, design thinking - as a management concept - is operationalized in terms of the interplay between perspective, structure, process, and mindset and it provides an alternative of how paradoxes in innovating organizations can be approached, and the resulting tensions managed.

    In search of a creative space: A conceptual framework of synthesizing paradoxical tensions2016Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 32, nr 1, s. 33-44Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine paradoxes in organizations and the organizations’ ability to deal with the resulting paradoxical tensions. Paradoxes constitute contradictory yet interrelated organizational demands that exist simultaneously, with the resulting tensions persisting over time. Irrespective of the prevailing evidence that engaging paradoxes leads to peak performance in the short-term, which reinforces long-term success, the question of how this might be done remains perplexing. Thus, based on pragmatic philosophy, this paper aims to increase our understanding of what constitutes a paradox and suggests a conceptual framework from which organizations and their members can frame and cope with tensions that result from paradoxes. Specifically, we conceptually map a way to achieve a synthesis of paradoxical tensions that is informed by design thinking. This synthesis is said to occur when competing demands are simultaneously fulfilled to their full potential. In this paper, design thinking – as a management concept – is used to refer to the interplay between perspective, structure, process, and mindset. It provides an alternative framing of how organizations approach paradoxes and deal with the resulting tensions.

    Analyzing competing demands in organizations: a systematic comparison2018Inngår i: Journal of Organization Design, ISSN 2245-408X, Vol. 7, nr 6Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizational scholars have shown increasing interest in the ways in which managers enact and respond to competing demands and the tensions they prompt as constitutive elements of their organizations. There is now a proliferation of conceptualizations of such competing demands that can be somewhat confusing. We will enhance conceptual clarity by identifying seven constitutive empirical characteristics of competing demands: these consist of the existence of dyadic relations, contradiction, interrelatedness, complementarity, compatibility, simultaneity, and the existence of push-pull forces. We construct a comparative classification of competing demands using these characteristics as our distinguishing features. The result is a more nuanced understanding of how managers approach competing demands that can help scholars to minimize arbitrariness, interpret results, and compare contributions in the area in a much-needed step toward understanding and designing organizations.

    The role of space for a paradoxical way of thinking and doing: a study of idea work in architectural firms2019Inngår i: Creativity and Innovation Management, ISSN 0963-1690, E-ISSN 1467-8691, Vol. 28, nr 2, s. 265-281Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well established that engaging paradoxes and the role of space are important aspects of idea work. Although the significance has been recognized, studies that focus on the intersection between space and paradox are scarce. Accordingly, this article explores the intersection and focuses on the role of space in idea work characterized by paradoxes. More specifically, the aim of this article is twofold. First, the article aims at identifying the spatial conditions that enable organization members to think and act paradoxically. Second, the article aims at exploring how spatial conditions evoke a paradoxical way of thinking and doing. Based on three Scandinavian architectural firms, and through abductive inference, four spatial conditions are identified and outlined. The conditions are conceptualized as organized chaos, boundary(less)ness, premeditated spontaneity, and (re)framing. From the results, and through the discussion, the notion of “generative space” is introduced to explain the overall importance of spatiality, as well as how the interrelatedness of the conditions facilitates a paradoxical way of thinking and doing in idea work.

    Identity construction among boundary-crossing individuals2001Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, Vol. 17, nr 3, s. 357-377Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we describe a study of boundary-crossing individuals (individuals who change organisation frequently) and the way they construct identities through interaction and self-reflexion. It is argued from a social constructionist perspective that studies of the way individual identities are constructed are important to our understanding of the complexity of the identity phenomenon. Identities cannot simply be reduced to certain stable institutionalised aspects such as profession or gender. Rather life should be seen as an ongoing process of identity construction, whereby reflexion upon life episodes and the pattern of such episodes shape identities. The results suggest different patterns of articulations through narratives. These narratives are associated with different underlying ontological discourses that describe diverse ways of reasoning among boundary-crossing individuals.

    Projectification Revisited/Revised2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The original notion of projectification related to organizations and project management was straightforward. Activities formerly regarded or handled as normal matters or routines were transformed to be projects with a specific task associated with each project and a focus on efficiency in terms of time lapse and resources. However, over time the notion has appeared in a wide set of narratives.

    In this paper we provide examples of narratives intending to pave the way for an academic discussion aiming towards theorizing projectification processes. We include evidence of a need to see beyond the simplistic notions and also allude to meta-theory.

    Näringslivsledares arbete i nätverk: identitetsskapandets dynamik1994Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is concerned with the work of business leaders. The interest lies in the holders of positions as Chairpersons, Boardmembers and Managing Directors. This study, however, goes beyond the position holder to consider the actions of actors, as they operate within networks with concurrent multiple business activities. The purpose is to generate knowledge and understanding of the activities and relations of multibusiness leaders involved in managing small and medium-sized companies.

    Major schools of thought on the manager's job are described. The review relates the scientific debate about different schools and emphasises the need for more inductive research. The call for processual and contextual analysis leads to an epistemological position grounded in understanding through interpretation. The method used in this study adopts such an approach, and thus aims to discover qualities of the studied phenomenon based on social constructivism. Empirical reality is approached by means of intensive studies of a few cases.

    Case descriptions of the work of multibusiness leaders in the National, Regional, Intermediary, Independent, and Developing Networks are undertaken, where the inter­action processes of the different actors are described according to the working life his­tory of the actor, and to the networking and work activities carried out.

    The analysis is based upon four themes (the actor's 'task legitimacy', 'economic legi­timacy', 'idea development' and 'network'). The first two themes have been given the generic term 'legitimacy concept', not only to reflect the interactive and changeable aspects of work, but also to illustrate how work in itself is intimately interwoven in an institutional context. The creation of 'task legitimacy' and 'economic legitimacy' of the leaders is analysed. The analysis of the actors' idea development results in a description of differing visions in the individual networks. This description takes up visions covering long-term industrial leadership, regional co-operative leadership, restructuring leadership, flexible market-adaptive leadership and network-based leadership.

    In a survey of the existing literature, the role of a leader is seen as one of many managerial roles, a view that is based upon the work of Mintzberg (1973). This study contrasts with the above picture, by discussing a reciprocal dependency between the leader's leadership role and his/her other roles. This reciprocity and concurrency is dealt with by introducing the concept of identity as a theoretical aid, thus reflecting in a more appropriate way the complex and interactive actor.

    The social identity concept (Tajfel, 1982) is used, in order to answer more profoundly the research questions. As leaders are reciprocally dependent on a network for their own existence, we must both look inward in order to be able to understand at a deeper level the actors' motives, and look outward to be able to look at identity creation in a wider industry context. What I have termed näringslivsledaridentitet (the Identity of Multibusiness Leaders), is a substantial part of this study's findings. The concept is used in order to be able to describe how the actors' inner and outer motives merge in identity creating processes. The actors' different patterns of interaction are absorbed into a composite whole.

    Organizing and designing affectice spaces in projective cities2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    For 54% of the global population, living, working and playing takes place in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. Considering the importance of cities, it is understandable that organization scholars have become interested in the way organizing is translated into ongoing actions and how these actions are assembled in the city context. This paper proposes a conceptual vocabulary allowing to incorporate analysis of the complexity of city management endeavours. Our group of researchers followed the materialization of a large cultural development initiative. In our conducted studies we refused to treat the city as a stable and separate entity; rather, we saw it as a meshwork connecting heterogeneous components without homogenizing. This multiplicity is especially obvious in the cultural arena on which various activities are meshed together, resulting in an overflow of cultural expressions. Such expressions are meant to entertain, provoke and instil reflexivity among the citizens, but also raise the question of how they can be managed. In the studied case; public, private and voluntary initiatives became assembled and repeatedly translated into what we call projectified practices. Such practices included creation of a temporary organization as a way to manage short-term activities, but also construction of affective spaces as a way to strategize long-term investments related to urban design as a whole. These practices opened for new collaborative efforts, but also resulted in new excluding mechanisms, typical for what can be called a projective city.

    Organizing and strategizing projective cities: Enabling and constraining action in meshworks2014Inngår i: EGOS (European Group of Organization Studies) 2014, Rotterdam: Sub-theme 53: Designing Innovative and Responsible Organizations: Cities, Communities and Workplaces, 2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Living, working and playing for over 50 per cent of the global population takes place in cities. In recent years, organization scholars who study cities have become interested in how organizing are translated into ongoing actions and how these actions are assembled in the city context. They have pointed out that organizations perform strategizing, designing and organizing, directing readers’ attention to ongoing movements in and around organizations. The present paper describes city development as a situated practice and proposes a conceptual vocabulary comprehensive enough to catch the complexity of strategic endeavors such as performing a ‘city of culture’. Our group of researchers followed the materialization of a large development-culture initiative, attempting to understand how organizing and strategizing were shaped in the context of this initiative. As a way to analyze ongoing actions, we refused to treat the city as a stable and separate entity; rather, we saw the city as a ‘meshwork’; heterogeneous assemblies emerging on its terrain. Public and private initiatives worked in tandem, in concert and contest, becoming repeatedly translated into ‘projectified’ practices. ‘Projectifying’ and ‘projecting’ city development is thus an attempt to shape and form what can be named ‘projective cities’. Such a projective city is comprised of multiple projects, multiple arenas, and multiple forces – entangled together.

    Abstract [en]

    Cities are the dynamic places within which living, working and playing is performed for over fifty per cent of the global population. In recent years, organization scholars who study cities have become interested in the way organizing is translated into ongoing actions and how these actions are assembled in the city context. This paper describes city development as a situated practice and proposes a conceptual vocabulary comprehensive enough to incorporate the complexity of such strategic endeavours as the performing of a ‘city of culture’. Our group of researchers followed the materialization of a large developmental-cultural initiative, attempting to understand how organizing and strategizing were shaped in the context of this initiative. As a way of analysing ongoing actions, we refused to treat the city as a stable and separate entity; rather, we saw the city as a meshwork: heterogeneous assemblies emerging on its terrain. Public and private initiatives worked in tandem, in concert and contest, and were repeatedly translated into projectified practices. Projectifying and projecting city development could thereby be described as an attempt to shape and form what we call projective cities. A projective city comprises multiple projects, multiple arenas and multiple forces – not always co-created in harmony with its citizens.

    Projective cities: provoking and constraining overflow in urban development2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    For 54% of the global population, living, working and playing takes place in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66% 2050. Considering the importance of cities, organization scholars have become interested in the way organizing is translated into ongoing actions and how these actions are assembled in the city context. This paper describes urban development as a situated practice and proposes a conceptual vocabulary comprehensive enough to incorporate the complexity of such strategic endeavours as the performing of a 'city of culture'. Our group of researchers followed the materialization of a large developmental cultural initiative, attempting to understand how organizing were shaped in the context of this initiative. As a way of analysing ongoing actions, we refused to treat the city as a stable and separate entity; rather, we saw the city as a meshwork: heterogeneous assemblies emerging on its terrain. Such assemblies are open to multifarious ways of organizing which mixes initiatives in nets of action. This is certainly obvious in the cultural arena where various activities are meshed together comprising an overflow of cultural expressions. Such expressions entertain, provoke and instil reflexivity among the citizens but also raise the question of how these activities can be managed by organizational devices. In our case public, private and voluntary initiatives became assembled, in concert and contest, and were repeatedly translated into what we conceptualize as projectified practices. These practices included creation of a temporary organization as a way to timely manage short-term activities, but also projective elements as a way to strategize long-term investments related to urban development as a whole. Such practices opened for new collaborative efforts comprising multiple projects and multiple arenas, but also resulted in new excluding mechanisms significant to what can be called the projective city.

    Abstract [en]

    Culture is an important part of the society and economy. People tend to evaluate progress through the delivery and survival of cultural artifacts whether that is in tangible terms or through memory of spectacular events. In this way project management has much to offer society. Recent developments highlight how cultural issues in general become necessary for city and community development in order to maintain their attraction as livable places both for citizens and organizations. The variety of cultural activities range from performing and visual arts, music scenes and theaters, to concentrated efforts related to cultural festivals and large-scale Capital of Culture-years including multitudes of artistic expressions. Although it is widely acknowledged that culture matters to society, our understanding of how cultural projects are organized remain under-studied. This lack of knowledge is further emphasized when we consider how core cultural activities are related to creative industries and business development. A wide spectrum of artistic expressions is considered to stimulate co-creation and creativity between different spheres of activities, but the question is how. Despite the complexity of weaving together cultural activities of various types, projects stand out as a common denominator. Organizing by projects energize collaborative actions and provide arenas for creative exploration of the opportunities that lie ahead.

    The idea for a special issue on organizing cultural projects was triggered by a research project conducted at Umeå School of Business and Economics concerning the European Capital of Culture initiative in the City of Umeå, Sweden, which was implemented during 2014 (Wåhlin, 2012). We investigated how such a large-scale initiative was organized and planned before, during and after the event and how each phase of the implementation comprised challenges of various kinds. One prominent feature that stood out was the use of projects both when it came to assembling the program in its entirety as well as when it came to energizing small scale initiatives among cultural practitioners (Näsholm and Blomquist, 2015). The tendency of projectification really became obvious and made us aware of a more general trend of organizing cultural activities through projects all over Europe not least stimulated by the European Union (Lundinet al., 2015a). By stretching the boundaries of the normal routines every city seems to strive for turning the conditions of the creative city (Andersson, 2011) into action by empowering and stimulating citizens in co-creative projects. When considering such endeavors we mean that the notion of the projective city seems more appropriate and relevant (APROS/EGOS, 2015).

    Strategizing through urban spaces: materializing a capital of culture2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The question in this paper is how strategies concerned with the development of the urban environment and economy create 'boundary spaces', that are physical but also social and mental, in which people translate, enact and materialize these strategies. Specifically, our study investigates the materialization of an urban strategy within the context of a development-cultural initiative by using a strategy-as-practice perspective enriched by narrative analysis. The narrative approach contributes to our understanding of how the social and material are successively entangled through urban spaces and weaved together and translated in praxis, practices and by practitioners. The 'boundary spaces' leave a clear mark in the townscape and aims to influence the ways of life in the city by outlining how the future could be built, since they become an interface transiting cultural, economic and social boundaries.

    Materializing urban design through boundary spaces2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper involves an exploration of how architecture, landscape and construction spaces contribute in urban design by providing incentives for interaction and emergence of collaborative ventures during a large cultural development initiative. The paper contains an analysis of how spaces becomes boundary mechanisms facilitating the translation of a cultural vision. By elaborating on ‘boundary spaces’ to explain the materialization of an urban strategy we use a praxeological outlook as it is framed in the strategy-as-practice literature. When we more closely delves into how spaces can be set in motion and become generative platforms we use the notion of action nets. Methodologically, the paper investigates how such strivings are articulated, planned and implemented in a local context by using a narrative approach comprised by analyses of narrative infrastructures. By mediating different layers of interpretation, boundary spaces turn into artifacts exceeding strategic projections.

    Virtual identities and market segmentation in marketing in and through massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs)2010Inngår i: Services Marketing Quarterly, ISSN 1533-2969, E-ISSN 1533-2977, Vol. 31, nr 3, s. 275-295Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It has been asserted that the emergence of virtual worlds has changed the ways that business may be conducted. In massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) a participant is given the opportunity to not only create an identity of how they would like to appear but also select individual activities. Clearly, this opportunity may carry marketing implications because marketers are given the opportunity to consider potential customers as they might like to be. Background in self-identity and buying behavior, the nature of MMOGs, taxonomy of gamers, and the construction of identity is sketched. Five propositions are developed that summarize our observations from this foundation.
