2013 (English)In: Nordic lights: Work, management and welfare in Scandinavia / [ed] Åke Sandberg, Stockholm: SNS förlag, 2013, 1, 348-367 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

How are new forms of management received in Scandinavia? What are the consequences for work and unions? What are specific Scandinavian contributions to a decent and productive working life? Do the experiences show that another world of work is possible? In the Nordic experience there is no trade-off between equality and economic development.

Today however, these models of productive welfare and solidaristic individualism are challenged due to global pressures, financialisation and politics of deregulation. With this background twenty-five leading researchers contribute to a unique overview.

Nordic Lights analyses management trends like New Public Management (NPM) and Lean Production, as well as Volvos work and management meeting Ford and Toyota, work environment, union renewal, worker resistance, gender perspectives, the flexible firm, boundaryless work, interactive media, and the new economy.

Increasing numbers of jobs are of a precarious nature. Inequalities are growing fast, not least in the Scandinavian countries: The Northern lights are perhaps not that bright any longer? But, in spite of their international dependence, the Nordic countries have been different for a long time, and can be so also in the future.
