A cognitive perspective on an industry (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: The way in which corporate managers interpret, reason and evaluate uncertainties and constant changes, and how they take advantage of their experiences and wisdom can make a big difference for the long term survival of their companies. The requirements for efficiency and flexibility have increased in many ways, especially concerning the workforce needed and its degree of competency. In Sweden, employee recruiting industry has grown concurrently with the changes in the Swedish economy.

Purpose: The purpose is to better understand the recruiting industry by performing a theoretical evaluation from a cognitive perspective.

Delimitation: We intended to study the cognitive characteristics of the Swedish recruitment industry. Our conclusions therefore cannot be considered a "theory" regarding any industry, foreign or domestic, butmust rather be seen as a further development or an idea of how to augment the understanding for a certain industry.

Result: The converged cognitive structure of the companies grows in dialogue and interaction with the surrounding world. An industry with a shared belief system consisting of clear patterns in argumentation and ways of thinking which outline the business concept, is established. It is difficult to determine how deep and constant the wisdom, or the collected knowledge, maturity and learning of experiences in the recruitment industry is because of its short period of existence.
