    Five Roles of an Information System: A Social Constructionist Approach to Analysing the Use of ERP Systems2003In: Informing Science, ISSN 1521-4672, Vol. 6, 209-220 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

        This paper presents a novel way of thinking about how information systems are used in organisations. Traditionally, computerised information systems are viewed as objects. In contrast, by viewing the information system as an actor, the understanding of the structuration process increases. The user, being influenced by the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system and giving it an actor role, thereby also confers agency on the ERP system; through its very use it influences actions and thus also the structure. Based on a case study of ERP use in an ABB company over a decade, five different roles played by the ERP systems were identified. The ERP systems acted as Bureaucrat, Manipulator, Administrative assistant, Consultant or were dismissed (Dismissed) in the sense that intended users chose to avoid using them. These terms are defined in the full text. The purpose of this approach here is not to -animate- the information systems, to give them life or a mind of their own, but rather to make explicit the socially constructed roles conferred on them by users and others who are affected by them. On this basis, it is possible to suggest how the roles can help us open up new areas of exploration concerning the fruitful use of IT.

    Meaning, Authority, Rationality and Care as “MARCs” of sustainable organisations2008In: Managing in the Pacific Century, 2008, 1-17 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we present MARC, a model for assessing – and improving – the health of organisationsfrom a humanistic point of view. It is a part of the quest for sustainability, currently a main theme inorganisations. The components of MARC: Meaning, Authority, Rationality, and Care, are four aspectsthat are all needed, and need to be in balance in an organisation, to provide a work situation wherepeople can sustainably thrive rather than be damaged and consumed for the sake of the organisation.Implications of the model are discussed. A conclusion is that trust is central to this healthy balance.This presents a real challenge for sustainability, as trust takes time to build – but can quickly beerased.

    Digitalisering2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Begreppet digitalisering är högt upp på agendan i många sammanhang. Att digitalisering är av fundamental betydelse för våra samhällen är de flesta överens om, men sällan diskuteras vad begreppet faktiskt kan betyda. Detta vill författarna Mathias Cöster och Alf Westelius reda ut i den här boken. De gör det genom att diskutera såväl digitaliseringens framväxt, som olika aktuella och möjliga framtida konsekvenser av den. Till exempel att Internet är ett slags drömmarnas nät – men kan det även ses som mardrömmarnas?

    Mathias Cöster och Alf Westelius tar med läsaren på en resa där digitaliseringen problematiseras med utgångspunkt i informationsteknikens historiska framväxt. På så sätt formulerar författarna ett viktigt fundament för fortsatt diskussion om teknikens möjligheter och begränsningar ur ett brukarperspektiv. Jag rekommenderar alla med ambitionen att förstå och påverka det moderna samhället att ta till sig av och reflektera över innehållet.

    Beyond a common title - The development of a professional identity among energy advisorManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore if and how a professional identity can be formed in the wake of the foundation of a new public service. In the article we focus on how different forces, regulative and emergent, interact and contribute to a development of a coherent understanding of a professional identity in a decentralized service. The case of local authority energy and climate consultancy is an illustrative example of a nascent service occupation in Sweden where the individuals holding the job title are geographically dispersed.

    Design/methodology/approach: This paper has a qualitative approach and relies on three different data sources: participatory observations, written documents, and in-depth interviews with energy and climate advisers working in a particular region in Sweden. The study covers the years 2005 to 2010.

    Findings: Our findings suggest that identity formation among geographically dispersed individuals in a nascent service occupation is possible. The development of collective understanding of the professional identity is influenced both by regulative and emergent forces, where regulative and autonomous forces seem to concur.

    Research limitations/implications: This paper is limited to one particular service occupation in Sweden from which generalizations are limited.

    Practical implications: The findings may serve as useful input for management in order to understand facilitation of identity building among professionals in decentralized functions.

    Originality/value: The value of this study lies in the comprehensive approach of how different pertinent forces interact with each other in order for a cohesive understanding of a work-related identity to develop in newly established service occupations.

    The social network and networking technology - The emergence and fostering of the network/s of local authority energyManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the concept of communities of practice and networks of practice. Special focus lies on networking technologies as tools for fostering emerging network/s. More specifically, the purpose of this articel is to frame and analyse the case of local authority energy consultancy from a community perspective as well as a concept of ba perspective to judge if, and how, a network is forming among the dispersed individuals holding the energy advisor job title. The contribution of this article lies in furthering the understanding of the problems faced in establishing national networks of practice, in environments where work and social interaction is geographically dispersed. Key findings are that there are several smaller communities of local energy advisors emerging rather than one unified network holding the whole professional body together. A reason for this development is probably that it is easier to build relations in smaller groups. Further, fostering of a larger network is important to get networking started, but it is the local initiatives that have viability. Finally, as assumed, dominating means of communication are uncontroversial technologies such as e-mail and telephone.

    Backbone or helping hand? On the role of information systems and non-systematic information in managers' work2011In: Informing Science: The International Journal of an Emerging Transdiscipline, ISSN 1547-9684, Vol. 14, 140-160 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information systems are often described as horizontal integrators, supporting and integrating core processes and providing vast amounts of real-time data in organisations. However, previous research indicates that managers use an “information mosaic” - a variety of pieces of information and information sources, rather than one centrally planned and unified information system - to control their work. In this paper, we explore recurring work activities among a number of managers with different responsibilities, and the use of information associated with these activities. The purpose is to put the formal computerised information system into the context of the information mosaic, thereby providing insight into how formal information systems support and do not support these managers’ work. Personnel responsibility is a uniting factor in the way these managers handle information and is an area where information systems seem to mainly support minor activities. Furthermore, the use of formal and informal information sources appears to be intertwined. The main contribution of this paper lies in charting managerial information behaviour in the light of technological development.

    Systems, roles and relationships in the governance ecologyManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide insight into how individuals perceive a management information and control milieu and how these perceptions influence the control practices.

    Design/methodology/approach – By applying the concept of role, we highlight alternative aspects of management information and control practices found in two public sector organisations; aspects that are often obscured in the traditional literature.

    Findings – Contrary to the formalised, depersonalised and top-down inspired practices often found in the management control literature, our findings indicate that bottom-up forces play an important role in the management landscape, that some key individuals serve to reinforce information flows and articulate expectations, and that signals can be faint yet still govern behaviour.

    Research limitations/implications – The paper is intended to inspire further research into how structural and individual aspects of management control operate together. The empirical content, representing two organisations only, limits the strength of the conclusions.

    Originality/value - Our findings add to the conventional understanding of management control, and the term governance ecology appears illustrative of the interplay among managers, information systems and other actors.

    The purpose of this paper is to explore how individuals perceive a management information and control milieu and how these perceptions influence the control practices. The paper is based on a case study of a public sector organisation. By applying the concept of role, we intend to contribute to the management control literature. Contrary to the formalised, top-down-inspired practices often found in the management control literature, we find that bottom-up forces play an important role in the management landscape and that signals can be faint yet still govern behaviour. We introduce the term “governance ecology” to illustrate the interplay among managers, other actors and structures, and to inspire further research into how structural and individual aspects of management control interact.

    Abstract [sv]

    Affärssystem har stor betydelse för hur verksamheter leds och organiseras. De utgör ryggraden i många organisationers informationsbehandling och styrning. Boken riktar sig till praktiker, studenter och forskare genom att visa på affärssystemområdets bredd och lyfta fram relevanta - och vetenskapligt intressanta - situationer och frågeställningar. Den syftar till att ta temperaturen på affärssystem i Sverige! I boken diskuteras vad affärssystem är, hur utvecklingen av dem förhåller sig till utveckling av skräddarsydda system, varför vi behöver dem och hur de bidrar till att skapa värde. På vilket sätt kan ett affärssystem underlätta införandet av en mer strategisk ekonomistyrning och vilken roll har controllern i arbetet med att ta tillvara systemets möjligheter? Vad kan vi lära oss av de företag som lyckats och varför är det troligt att affärssystem blir politiska verktyg i dragkampen om hur organisationen ska styras? Inte minst i den offentliga sektorn ställs många av dessa frågor på sin spets.

Vad kan vi lära oss av de företag som lyckats och varför är det troligt att affärssystem blir politiska verktyg i dragkampen om hur organisationen ska styras? Inte minst i den offentliga sektorn ställs många av dessa frågor på sin spets.

    How to differentiate by price: Proposal for a five-dimensional mode2013In: European Management Journal, ISSN 0263-2373, Vol. 31, no 2, 109-123 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to analyse the repertoire of possible price models that organisations may deploy for their products and services. This is attained by developing the SBIFT model that suggests that organisations can differentiate by price along five dimensions. Previous research on pricing has been dispersed across different academic disciplines. This article offers a more integrated perspective, derived from earlier theory as well as discussions in a collaborative research project with the international telecom company Ericsson. The model can be used as a tool for price modelling in a descriptive and prescriptive sense. Altogether, this article uncovers implicit features of price models, and by doing so it illustrates how an organisation can differentiate and re-invent their offering based on price.

    Effects of Quality Management According to ISO 9000: A Swedish Study of the Transit to ISO 9000:20002006In: Total Quality Management, ISSN 1478-3363, Vol. 17, no 8, 1021-1042 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of quality management in accordance with the ISO 9000 as viewed by both quality managers and other managers. We also consider the way companies carried out the re-certification process to ISO 9001:2000 and what consequences different approaches brought. The study is based on Swedish SMEs with an ISO 9000:1994 who had re-certified according to the ISO 9001:2000 standard. The strongest, most obvious and most valued effects of the ISO 9000 standard are clearer and more apparent working procedures and responsibilities. The most apparent problem is bureaucracy, which according to some managers can lead to reduced flexibility. The effects of the certification vary depending on how the certification project is conducted and how consultants are used.

    Ekonomiska styrmedel inom ideella organisationer2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idén och ansatsen till denna rapport har sitt ursprung i författaren Erik Lundmarks tidigare rapport IT-användning inom idrotten (FoU 2004:4).

    I utvecklingen av administrativa system har idrotten haft en tydlig devis: ”Mer tid för idrott”. Med andra ord, förenkla det administrativa arbetet så att man har tid att syssla med det man helst vill, nämligen idrottandet i sig. I rapporten från 2004 var det ett område där användandet av IT-verktyg mötte den målsättningen, hanteringen av LOK-stöd (lokalt aktivitets-stöd). Trots att många upplevde det som tidskrävande var det inte många som använde de tekniska hjälpmedel som fanns till hands. Riksidrottsförbundet (RF) var därför intresserade av att se om man kunde påvisa att ett ekonomiskt incitament, i det här fallet tidigare utbetalningar av stöd, kunde påverka användandet.

    Erik har i detta arbete visat att det man främst behöver göra för att påverka användandet mer handlar om att avsätta resurser på information till användarna om de möjligheter som finns. En teknisk förbättring bidrar naturligtvis också till en ökad användning. Resultatet av de ekonomiska incitamenten är otydligt, om det ens finns där.

    Rapporten är läsvärd och ger både RF och andra ideella organisationer diskussionsunderlag för hur man bäst går tillväga för att, i det här fallet, öka användandet av ett specifikt system.

    Entrepreneurship as Elixir and Mutagen2014In: Entrepreneurship: Theory & Practice, ISSN 1042-2587, E-ISSN 1540-6520, Vol. 38, no 3, 575-600 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Metaphors are powerful tools for sensemaking, sensegiving, and theory development, but they are often concealed in academic writing. This paper uncovers two metaphors underlying entrepreneurship discourse and research—elixir and mutagen. The elixir metaphor is uncovered by examining critiques of entrepreneurship research, and serves as a compact description of problematic aspects entrepreneurship scholars should be mindful of. The mutagen metaphor is uncovered by examining evolutionary frameworks, focusing on the role entrepreneurship plays in them. The paper illustrates how the mutagen metaphor can be used to reframe entrepreneurship, and uses the metaphors to interest, inform, and provoke.

    Entrepreneurship: Elixir of Life or Mutagen2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The establishment of entrepreneurship as a research discipline has brought research traditions and assumptions that carry the risk of screening out important aspects of the phenomena involved. This paper contrasts the describing and perceiving of entrepreneurship using an elixir metaphor with a metaphor of entrepreneurship as a mutagen. The elixir metaphor can present it as a panacea, a revitaliser, a sweet medium for bitter medicine, or a substance transmuting base metals into gold. The mutagen metaphor implies that entrepreneurship induces changes in the basic scripts of organisations and that entrepreneurial action can reasonably be modelled ex ante as stochastic.

    Abstract [en]

    Large investments have been made by various governments for the deployment of broadband within their respective nations; however, the citizens of such countries have demonstrated a slow adoption of this technology.

    The Handbook of Research on Global Diffusion of Broadband Data Transmission explores broadband adoption and the digital divide through a global perspective, providing up-to-date research on constructs such as relative advantage, utilitarian outcomes, hedonic outcomes, and service quality. Compiling cutting-edge research from over 100 noted experts in nearly 30 countries, this invaluable reference source allows policy makers, internet service providers, and others to gain multicultural insight into what factors actively influence consumers decisions to adopt broadband

    Adoption of Discretionary Public Information Systems with Digital Use Patterns: Barriers and Driving Forces2008In: International Journal of Public Information Systems, ISSN 1653-4360, Vol. 4, no 2, 87-130 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a new model, AKAM, for analysing adoption of discretionary, public information systems (PIS) with digital use patterns (such as use or non-use, as opposed to frequency of use, or degree of engaged or compliant use). The model is based on Rogers’ innovation diffusion theory (IDT) and Nilsson’s user centred access model (UCAM). The model is an alternative to the general technology acceptance model (TAM). The AKAM model (Awareness, Knowledge, Access and Motivation) identifies six prerequisites for use and four management approaches and describes how these are related. To illustrate its applicability, the AKAM model is used to analyse the adoption of a specific module, the YAF-module, in the Swedish Sports Confederation’s (SSC) system Swedish Sports Online. We present empirical results that indicate the frequency and importance of the barriers and driving forces as experienced by the YAF module users and the potential YAF module users.

    Strategic management control: with a focus on dialogue2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What is Strategic Management Control? It differs from traditional management control in several important respects. Firstly, it supports both strategy formulation and strategy implementation. Secondly, in Strategic Management Control, both financial and non-financial information play a prominent part. Thirdly, it is deals with both the long and the short term and supports not only tactical decision making, but also strategic and operational decision making and acting. Fourthly, and perhaps most importantly, Strategic Management Control is designed for, and adapted to, the organisation’s unique strategies.

    This book emphasises the importance of dialogues. This is a distinguishing feature of a Scandinavian approach to management. The authors argue that it is unwise to believe that decisions taken at the top of the organisation will automatically be executed and obeyed throughout the whole organisation – all the way to the lowest level. Instead, the importance of dialogues and conversations are highlighted; both between hierarchical levels within the organisation and among actors in networks. Such dialogue is essential to make the management control processes strategic and successful.

    Strategic Management Control follows a clear structure, from the design of the strategies to the everyday evaluation of and discussion about performance and results.

    The intended reader is either a student or a researcher in academia or a professional who is working with strategy and management control in an organisation. The book’s 15 co-authors are all leading experts within their specific fields. This mix of authors provides a range perspectives on the design, use and effects of Strategic Management Control.

    Strategisk ekonomistyrning: med dialog i fokus2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad innebär strategisk ekonomistyrning? Den skiljer sig från traditionell ekonomistyrning i några viktiga avseenden. För det första är den strategiska styrningen både ett stöd vid utformning av nya strategier och ett verktyg för att bidra till att de realiseras. För det andra följer den upp verksamheten med hjälp av både finansiell och icke-finansiell information. För det tredje fokuserar den på såväl kort som lång sikt: strategiskt, taktiskt och operativt - inte bara på den taktiska (årliga) planeringen och uppföljningen. Slutligen, och kanske viktigast, är den utformad för att passa företagets unika strategi.

    I den här boken läggs stort fokus på dialogens betydelse. Detta är ett tydligt särdrag som utmärker en skandinavisk syn på management. Författarna hävdar att man inte bara kan fatta beslut i toppen och tro att besluten sedan troget ska utföras på botten. I stället lyfts betydelsen av dialog och samtal fram, såväl mellan hierarkiska nivåer inom en organisation som mellan aktörer i ett nätverk. Denna dialog är en av de viktigaste faktorerna för att göra styrningen strategisk och framgångsrik. Strategisk ekonomistyrning följer en tydlig logik, från att strategierna utformas till att resultaten diskuteras och följs upp i vardagen.

    Boken riktar sig till såväl studenter och forskare som praktiker och är skriven av 15 författare från olika forskningsinriktningar. Alla är ledande inom sina respektive områden. Detta synliggör olika perspektiv på utformning, användning och effekter av den strategiska ekonomistyrningen.

    Hur man sätter pris är avgörande för alla verksamheter! Exportframgångar, oväntade extrakostnader, engagerade medarbetare, låg kvalitet i äldreomsorgen - alla hänger de samman med vad vi kommer överens om att betala och för vad.Boken förklarar koncepten affärsekologi, affärsmodell och prismodell och hur de hänger samman. Det illustreras genom tre större fallberättelser, om Taxi Kurir, Stockholms Konserthus och Payex, och flera praktiska småexempel på intressanta prismodeller. Val av prisnivå och hur prisanvändning i en organisation kan styras har fått egna kapitel.

    Tilläggstjänster för smarta kunder: Stångåstadsmodellen för ökat kvarboende2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilka självvalda insatser kan ett fastighetsbolag vidta för att bidra till att de äldre hyresgästerna, som annars skulle vara tvungna att flytta, kan bo kvar i sin bostad under ytterligare en period? Som underlag för att utveckla sådana strategier formulerar vi i rapporten en modell för hur fastighetsbolag kan bedöma olika tjänster (eller kombinationer av tjänster, -tjänstepaket-). Vi illusterar också hur modellen kan användas. Rapporten beskriver slutsatserna från ett projekt som bedrevs inom AB Stångåstaden 2005. Författarna deltog i diskussioner, gjorde intervjuer och genomförde en workshop kring de frågor som diskuteras i rapporten. Arbetet bedrevs inom forskningsprogrammet Tredjelivet och ingick i AB Stångåstadens medverkan i detta.

    @ the emotional edge: When enough is enough in e-mail communication2013In: Individual sources, dynamics, and expressions of emotion, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2013, 309-342 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emailing does not preclude emotional exchange and many times it causes us to engage in spiralling exchanges of increasingly angry emailing. The purpose of this chapter is threefold: to explore how factors of temporality are related to anger when emailing, to model circumstances that protect against, but also ignite, anger escalation, and to raise a discussion for practitioners of how to avoid damaging email communication. By intersecting literature on communication, information systems, psychology and organisational studies, factors leading to an ‘emotional verge’ are identified and summarised in a model showing factors likely to prime, but also protect against, anger escalation.

    Abstract [en]

    The reliance on IT-mediated communication involvesinterpersonal exchanges without face-to-facecontact. However, this does not preclude emotionalexchange. Have we not all at some point engaged in e-mail exchange where facts, fantasies and contagion caused us to get caught in spiralingexchanges of increasingly emotional and decreasingly rational e-mail? The purpose here is to explore e-mail conversations perceived as going awry, in terms of negative emotional escalation. Backtracking e-mail conversations using discourse analysis and interviews, factors leading to an ‘‘emotional tipping point’’ and beyond were identified. Concludingly, psychological and managerial aspects on how then to avoid emotional escalation are derived.

    Academic reading: att använda forskningsartiklar somkurslitteratur2009In: Företagsekonomin i samhället: forskning, utbildning och relevans, 2009, 1-6 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns nu tydliga tongångar om att grundutbildning ska vara forskningsanknuten ochforskningsgrundad. Samtidigt är det vanligt att använda läroböcker som presenterarkursmaterial på ett färdigtuggat och ofta homogeniserat sätt - där forskningen är en (bra) bitbort och där åsiktsskillnader mellan forskare inte framhävs. Forskningsartiklar uppfattas somför svårsmälta för studenterna. Både i Europa och "down under" möter jag lärare som säger"mina studenter är för otåliga för att läsa tidskriftsartiklar; jag törs inte be dem göra det." Ochför studenter som inte fått möta och lärt sig läsa och tolka akademiska tidskriftsartiklarfortsätter denna källa till kunskap och mer eller mindre välgrundade åsikter att vara stängdeller i alla fall svårtillgänglig.Själv tillhör jag den skara lärare som ser det som en viktig uppgift att hjälpa studenter lära sigtolka och utnyttja forskningsartiklar. Linköpings universitetsbibliotek erbjuder tillgång till ettpar tusen tidskrifter - de flesta elektroniskt tillgängliga från valfri Internetuppkopplad dator.För den som gått en akademisk utbildning borde det vara en självklarhet att denna potentielltrika källa ska ses som en resurs som går att utnyttja.Men min väg till utnyttjandet av forskningsartiklar i undervisningen började inte med någotsådant kunskapspolitiskt ställningstagande. Den började helt enkelt med mitt missnöje medläroböcker. Typiskt sett fann jag varje lärobok jag träffade på delvis relevant, delvis irrelevantför den tilltänkte kursen och delvis vilseledande eller företrädande åsikter jag varken kundeställa mig bakom eller hysa aktning för. Vidare fann jag det förtvivlat tråkigt att läsa sådanaböcker för att se vad i dem som eventuellt skulle vara brukbart. De gav inte mig någonting.Skulle jag då kräva att studenter köpte böcker där jag bara tänkte nyttja en tredjedel? Ochskulle jag kunna förvänta mig att de inköpte en bukett böcker till en kurs för att täcka in detjag fann värt att försöka förmedla? Skulle jag kunna förmedla entusiasm till studenterna införtexter jag själv fann tråkiga? Det kändes som ett betydligt rimligare sätt att välja ut sådanaartiklar som jag fann intressanta och relevanta och försöka hjälpa studenterna att tolka ochfascineras - eller uppröras - av dem.I den korta artikel jag nu skrivit försöker jag förmedla mina erfarenheter av att användaforskningsartiklar i stället för läroböcker som kurslitteratur. Hur har det gått och vilka harutmaningarna varit?

    Abstract [sv]

    Ser du e-Learning som en etikett för det hyfsat strukturerade informationsmaterial som gömmer sig någonstans i ert Intranät och därigenom i princip är tillgängligt för den intresserade medarbetaren? Eller möjligen som det där halvtöntiga materialet om ”etiskt förhållningssätt” eller om ”datasäkerhet” som du förväntades ta del av och sedan svara på en elektronisk enkät för att visa att du behärskade innehållet? Då är du i gott (?) sällskap – så ser det typiskt sett ut i organisationer runt om i landet. Med den här artikeln vill jag istället få dig att uppfatta e-Learning som ett värdefullt verktyg i den verktygslåda som kan användas för att förbättra styrningen i organisationen. Det är en tanke som än så länge bara finns hos ett fåtal nytänkande företag.

    Abstract [sv]

      Hur styr vi IT och hur tar vi vara på dess möjligheter? Boken sammanfattar tjugo års debatt om nyttan av IT och vad som behövs för att förverkliga den.
