    Teaching the craft of qualitative business research methods: Lessons from going online2021Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With the theme of the conference, it is very relevant to have a discussion about how we teach methodology in business administration. We will begin by presenting an article on workshops in qualitative methodology as part of a module in scientific method on our programs in business administration, and the change it entailed to hold these online in Covid-19. We then open up for a discussion on the topic.

    Striving for spontaneity - bureaucracy strikes back2006In: Problems and Perspectives in Management, ISSN 1810-5467, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 144-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the intertwined relationship between order (bureaucracy) and spontaneity (through the organisational modes of competition and co-operation respectively). The purpose is to explore what happens when spontaneity attempts are confronted to the bureaucratic order, and why is this? The empirical setting is the public sector, which seems to be an exceptionally suitable environment to investigate spontaneity attempts in bureaucratic orders. More specifically, the article rests upon two qualitative case studies from Sweden, one in the County Council of Stockholm (where competition was introduced in health care) and one in the county of Västerbotten (Where interagency co-operation was aimed for in health care and social service). From the theoretical notion that competition and co-operation share an underlying assumption of spontaneity, we empirically identify two bureaucratic forces replying to spontaneity attempts, corresponding to "what happens" in the purpose: new structures and formalised devices, which frame the rebureaucratisation processes in both cases. A detailed analysis of the particulars of the rebureaucratisation process, corresponding to the "why" in the purpose, reveals three underlying dimensions of re-bureaucratisation - structural bureaucracy, ontological bureaucracy and habitual re-bureaucratisation. To conclude, if organisational modes attempting at spontaneity are introduced without careful reflection, bureaucracy will strike back.

    Att presentera kvalitativa data: Framställningsstrategier vid empiriredovisning2005Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Bearbetning av data utgör enligt författarna en mer avgörande aktivitet än urval och datainsamling. Alltför fylliga empiriredovisningar möter risken att inte bli lästa alls, vilket vore förödande för forskningens trovärdighet. Därför krävs en mer eller mindre drastisk komprimering av det empiriska materialet.

    Här identifieras ett antal framställningsstrategier som kan nyttjas vid kvalitativ forskning kring sociala fenomen.

    Boundary preservation or modification: the challenge of collaboration in health care2013In: Offentlig Förvaltning. Scandinavian Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 2000-8058, E-ISSN 2001-3310, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 115-142Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Collaboration has been alleged to increase quality and reduce costs in health care, however previous research shows that well-functioning integration might be difficult. This paper looks upon multi-professional teamwork from the professionals' perspective. The purpose is to study how organising processes are upheld or reshaped in a collaborative human services setting, and to explain the underlying mechanisms behind emerging organising processes. Two cases of multi-professional teamwork were studied and data collected through interviews with team members and their managers. The results suggest that it is possible to distinguish between organising processes of boundary modification and boundary preservation, respectively, where preserved legal and economic boundaries, maintenance of organisational cultures and separate service provision processes work to uphold existing organising processes , whereas disconnection of team activities from the parent organisations and the establishment of boundary platforms instead contribute to develop new modes of human services delivery. In particular, boundary platforms create meeting places for professionals to develop new ways of acting and producing services and therefore have the potential to exceed and modify physical, social and mental boundaries. Between the forces of boundary preservation and boundary modification, a tension will be induced and continuously upheld through political processes among actors.

    Chosen, trusted and disillusioned: an autoethnographic account of university–society collaboration from an academic's point2022In: Qualitative research in organization and management, ISSN 1746-5648, E-ISSN 1746-5656, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 135-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to understand the dynamic and power-laden nature of university–society collaboration from the individual academic's point of view.

    Design/methodology/approach: This paper applies an autoethnographic approach in following a specific collaboration process through detailed fieldnotes and continuous reflections. Findings: This research presents university–society collaboration as an emergent, volatile and fairly unpredictable process, involving a multitude of actors on both sides. The interactions among actors shape the emerging process and power relationships. The academic's situation could be understood in terms of multiple and shifting subject positions that could be embraced, accepted, resisted or surrendered to by the academic.

    Practical implications: These findings may help academics with own experiences of collaboration to shed light on their observations. Novice academics, interested in collaborating with society, should be aware of the possibility of tensions and exercise of power in interactions with societal actors. When setting up collaboration agreements, academic and societal actors are advised to openly discuss potential problems and how to handle those.

    Originality/value: This unique, in-depth testimony of a single collaboration process from the individual academic's point of view uncovers previously unobserved dynamic and political attributes of the process.

    Familjecentralen som gränsöverskridande team2016In: Team i vård, behandling och omsorg: erfarenheter och reflektioner / [ed] Johan Berlin, Håkan Sandberg, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2016, 2, p. 81-106Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel skildrar teamarbete på en så kallad familjecentral. I dessa gränsöverskridandeteam, sammansatta av individer med olika yrken och organisationstillhörigheter,‚ finns ƒera olika normsystem eller "logiker", som medför både spänningar och samarbetsvinster i arbetet. Den organisatoriska logiken härrör från den organisation teammedlemmen kommer från, den professionella logiken bottnar i teammedlemmens yrke och teamlogiken är kopplad till den nya funktionen på familjecentralen. Teammedlemmen be‚nner sig i ett korsdrag mellan dessa logiker och tillhörigheter. Baserat på en studie av en familjecentral, framstår den professionella logiken som mycket stark medan teamlogiken förutsätter att de ursprungliga huvudmännen/organisationerna träder tillbaka och ger teamet reella möjligheter att utvecklas i enlighet med sin logik.

    Humanitarian versus organizational morality: A survey of attitudes concerning business ethics among managing directors1995In: Journal of Business Ethics, ISSN 0167-4544, E-ISSN 1573-0697, Vol. 14, no 12, p. 977-986Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the results of an empirical study of attitudes towards ethical questions in business life among managing directors. They study covers more than 240 Swedish firms of all sizes, from different lines of business, and it is based on a solid theoretical framework. It should be seen as a part of the author''s effort to develop a model explaining ethical organizational behaviour. Among the most important conclusions of the study is the concept of "corporate moral view". It seems possible to distinguish between "the humanitarian morality" versus "the organizational morality", depending on who''s interests the decision maker prefers to take in a moral dilemma.

    Interagency collaboration in human services: Impact of formalization and intensity on effectiveness2007In: Public Administration, ISSN 0033-3298, E-ISSN 1467-9299, Vol. 85, no 1, p. 143-166Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Interagency collaboration in human services production, it has been claimed, contributes to improved quality and/or reduced costs, but previous research on effectiveness from collaboration has failed to recognize that collaboration could be arranged in a multitude of ways. This paper investigates the effectiveness consequences of alternative collaboration arrangements. From a literature review, the degree of formalization and intensity, respectively, stand out as major aspects of collaboration. The impact on effectiveness from intensity and formalization was investigated through an explorative case study of collaboration projects in Sweden. Results suggest that the particular combination of formalization and intensity determines the impact on effectiveness. Combining low intensity with medium high formalization into ‘an assignments reallocation strategy’ of collaboration appears to have modest impact, whereas medium high intensity in combination with low formality, that is, ‘a commitment-based networking strategy’, has a high potential to increase effectiveness. High intensity in combination with high formalization produces ‘a formalized team-building strategy’, which is simultaneously promising and risky.

    Multi-professional teamwork in human services: The mutual shaping of professional identity and team activities2018In: Journal of Health Organization & Management, ISSN 1477-7266, E-ISSN 1758-7247, Vol. 32, no 5, p. 741-759Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper investigates the prospects and difficulties of multi-professional teamwork in humanservices from a professional identity perspective. The purpose of this paper is to explore the mutual interplaybetween professional identity formation and team activities.

    Design/methodology/approach – This is a process study of two cases of multi-professional teamwork infamily care. Data were collected through in-depth interviews with team members and managers. The analysisfollows a stepwise approach alternating between the individual and team levels.

    Findings – In showing the mutual interplay between teamwork processes and individual identity formation,the study contributes knowledge on professional identity formation of mature professionals; in particularshowing how unique individual identification processes have different consequences for multi-professionalteam activities. Further, alternative shapes of interplay between individual identity formation and team-levelprocesses are identified.

    Research limitations/implications – Despite the fact that the sample is small and that collaborationintensity was relatively low, the paper succeeds in conceptualising the links between professional identityformation and multi-professional teamwork.

    Practical implications – In managing multi-professional teams, team composition and the team’s earlydevelopments seem determining for whether the team will reach its collaborative intentions.

    Originality/value – This paper is original in its exploration of the ongoing interplay between individualidentity formation and multi-professional team endeavours. Further, the paper contributes knowledge onmature professionals’ identity formation, particularly concerning individual variation within and betweenprofessional groups.
