    HR-strategier för regional tillväxt och samverkan? En studie av två arbetsmarknadsintermediärer2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna rapport är att bidra till en ökad förståelse för hur två regionala intermediära organisationer, inom HR-området, arbetar med förändrings- och kompetensrelaterade frågor.

    En interaktiv forskningsansats har tillämpats vilket innebär att planering och genomförande av forskningsarbetet har skett i dialog med berörda praktiker. Det empiriska materialet utgörs främst av 12 intervjuer med personer som arbetar inom de studerade intermediära organisationerna.

    Resultaten i denna studie visar att det finns många likheter mellan de två studerade intermediära organisationerna. Båda erbjuder ett brett spektra av HR-tjänster, ägs av sina kundföretag och har en samverkande roll mellan kundföretagen. Resultaten visar också att de båda intermediärerna har utvecklat en relativt speciell roll som intermediärer som innebär att de, i vissa avseenden, arbetar både som en extern och en intern HR-resurs till sina kundföretag. Även när det gäller arbetets organisering visar resultaten på flera likheter mellan de studerade intermediära organisationerna. Personalen i båda intermediärorganisationerna arbetar mycket flexibelt och anpassar sitt arbetssätt efter kundernas behov och önskemål. Få standardiserade modeller eller arbetsverktyg används i arbetet och det finns inte något utvecklat system för dokumentation och kunskapsöverföring som används aktivt inom intermediärorganisationerna. Samtidigt tyder resultaten på att ena av de två organisationerna har en något mer fast struktur med tydligt definierade arbetsområden och roller. Det finns också vissa skillnader mellan organisationerna vad gäller hur man önskar att inrikta och organisera sitt arbete i framtiden. Vidare visar resultaten från denna studie att personalen, inom de båda studerade organisationerna, upplever att deras arbete kan bidra till att kundföretagen får nya perspektiv och synsätt. I bästa fall kan även arbetet bidra till att företagen kan arbeta mer strategiskt och att de lär sig hantera olika problematiska situationer på egen hand och får en ökad beredskap att hantera förändring och problem i framtiden. Samtidigt är många uppdrag av mer akut och kortsiktig karaktär vilket innebär att det kan vara svårt att bidra till mer långsiktiga resultat i kundföretagen.

    Working and Learning in Times of Uncertainty: Challenges to Adult, Professional and Vocational Education2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book analyses the challenges of globalisation and uncertainty impacting on working and learning at individual, organisational and societal levels. Each of the contributions addresses two overall questions: How is working and learning affected by uncertainty and globalisation? And, in what ways do individuals, organisations, political actors and education systems respond to these challenges?

    Part 1 focuses on the micro level of working and learning for understanding the learning processes from an individual point of view by reflecting on learners’ needs and situations at work and in school-work transitions. Part 2 addresses the meso level by discussing sector-specific and organisational approaches to working and learning in times of uncertainty. The chapters represent a broad range of branches including public services (police work), the automotive sector and the health sector (elderly care). Finally, Part 3 addresses the macro level of working and learning by analysing how to govern, structure and organise vocational, professional and adult education at the boundaries of work, education and policy making.

    The owner-manager’s role as a facilitator of informal learning in small businesses2019In: Human Resource Development International, ISSN 1367-8868, E-ISSN 1469-8374Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Few studies have examined the owner-manager as a facilitator of learning in small businesses. Furthermore, these studies are typically not framed by distinctive characteristics of small businesses. These limitations of the literature stimulated us to ask: How do the situational opportunities and constraints that emanate from the distinctive characteristics of small businesses affect the small business owner-manager’s role as a facilitator of learning? To address this question, we first conducted a narrative review of existing research on the owner-manager as facilitator of learning in small businesses (10–49 employees). Four themes emerged from our analysis of research findings, including a theme that owner-managers are seldom directly involved in facilitating employees’ learning. Next, we conducted an integrative review of literatures that discuss (a) indirect approaches managers can adopt to facilitate learning; and (b) small business characteristics. We focussed on four high-impact indirect approaches owner-managers can use and examined how employment of each approach might be enabled or constrained by distinctive characteristics of small businesses. The integrative review generated ten research propositions. We also synthesized a conceptual framework that illustrates the main variables to be studied and presumed relationships among them. Based on our analysis of literature, implications for policy and practice are proposed.

    Sustainable Working Life development through interactive research2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Interactive research has emerged as a new approach to collaborative research in working life research, and it is characterized by a continuous joint learning process between the researchers and the practitioners. In this paper we argue that interactive research is a way to advance scientific knowledge about the development of new types of work arrangements and development of sustainable working life. We present the basic ideas and benefits of the interactive research approach, illustrated through a practical case, the HELIX Competence Centre and discuss potential limitation and challenges associated with this form of collaborative research.

    Mot ett förändrat ledarskap?: om chefers arbete och ledarskap i ett organisationsperspektiv2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I många sammanhang diskuteras i dag behovet av ett ledarskap som bättre kan främja medarbetares lärande och utveckling och därmed även verksamheters utveckling. Det innebär att nya krav och förväntningar riktas mot chefer i organisationer, exempelvis vad gäller förändrade arbetssätt och förändrad kompetens. Syftet med denna bok är att bidra till ökade kunskaper om innebörden av och förutsättningar för chefers arbete och ledarskap i organisationer, samt att problematisera och empiriskt belysa de ofta allmänt hållna föreställningar, modeller och moden som finns i normativ chefs- och ledarskapslitteratur.

    I bokens inledande kapitel ges först en översiktlig beskrivning av teorier och skolbildningar som tidigare dominerat ledarskapsforskningen, och därefter presenteras inriktningar som utvecklats under senare decennier. I bokens följande kapitel diskuteras några aktuella teman mer ingående, till exempel:

    • dilemman och utmaningar i chefers dagliga arbete
    • ledarskap och kön
    • ledning genom delaktighet
    • chefers arbetsmiljö och hälsa
    • mätningars roll i styrning och förbättringsarbete
    • utvecklingsinriktat ledarskap
    • ledarskapsutveckling.

    Effekter av ledarutveckling för individ och organisation2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport är en delrapport inom ramen för ett longitudinellt forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt vid HELIX VINN Excellence Centre vid Linköpings universitet. Det övergripande projektets syfte är att beskriva och analysera förutsättningar för en förbättrad koordination bland toppchefer i en växande och geografiskt expanderande organisation, samt hur koordinationen cheferna emellan kan förstås i termer av en kollektiv lärprocess. Som en del i detta större projekt har det även ingått att göra vissa fördjupningsstudier. Denna rapport är en sådan fördjupningsstudie där fokus varit på effekter av en ledarutvecklingssatsning som genomförts under ett antals års tid i en del av organisationen. Det empiriska underlaget samlades in under våren 2009.

    Rapporten har tagits fram i ett nära samarbete mellan forskarna i projektet. Cecilia Höglund och Lisa Östman, studenter vid PA-programmet i Linköping, har även samlat in och presenterat empirin inom ramen för sin kandidatuppsats ”Ledarutvecklingsprogram - användbart eller ej?”. Vi vill speciellt tacka de personer på fallföretaget som öppnat sina dörrar och tagit av sin tid för att möjliggöra vårt intervjuande.

    Ledningsteamets lärprocess bidrog till att lösa företagets kris2013In: Leda mot det nya: en forskningsantologi om chefskap och innovation / [ed] Martin Kreuger, Lucia Crevani & Kristina Larsen, Stockholm: VINNOVA , 2013, p. 188-Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Chefers agerande kan både underlätta och förhindra innovation! Chefer på alla nivåer är avgörande för nytänkande inom organisationer. Samtidigt är det medarbetarnas kompetens som skapar mervärde inom organisationer och som kan hitta lösningar på problem och tillvarata möjligheter. I dag är nya produkter ofta ett resultat av långvarigt samspel mellan människor både inom och mellan organisationer. Därför menar vi att det behövs en annan´typ av ledarskap och kanske också medarbetarskap. Boken är skriven för dig som är chef, konsult eller har en HR-funktion. Vi hoppas att den ska väcka tankar kring vad man som chef kan göra för att möjliggöra förnyelse och bidra till organisationer innovationsförmåga. Kapitlen i boken baserar sig på resultat från Vinnovas forskningssatsning ”Chefskap: förutsättningar, former och resultat”. Chefskap har studerat inom elva olika forskningsprojekt. Det finns exempel på utmaningar när det gäller att leda arbete både inom och mellan organisationer. En handfull av projekten har haft innovation i fokus och de andra projekten presenterar tankar om chefskap som vi ser är viktiga för att kunna vara innovativ. Tidningen Chef vill göra svenskt arbetsliv bättre genom att utveckla Sveriges chefer och deras ledarskap. En del i detta har varit att bidra med redaktörskap för denna antologi. Enheten för Arbetsorganisation och ledning på Vinnova vill stärka svenska företags och organisationers innovationsförmåga. Rätt ledarskap och goda organisatoriskaförutsättningar är centralt för detta!

    Begreppet intermediär2013In: Uppdrag kompetensförsörjning: Rollen som intermediär / [ed] Gerry Andersson,Mats Holmquist,Erik Jakobsson,Fredrik Jönsson,Henrik Kock |,Malin Ljungzell,Andreas Wallo ochCarina Åberg, Örebro: APeL Forskning och utveckling , 2013, p. 11-14Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Allt större krav ställs på en fungerande kompetensförsörjning. Medarbetare med rätt kompetens är en förutsättning för konkurrenskraft i företagen och för kvaliteten i våra välfärdssystem. Det är också en förutsättning för att regionerna ska kunna utvecklas och bidra till målen om en smart, hållbar och inkluderande tillväxt i EU:s strategi för Europa 2020. I regionala utvecklingsstrategier och program pekas utmaningar som rör kompetensförsörjning ut som kritiska faktorer för måluppfyllelse.

    Den här rapporten handlar om hur organisationer och strukturer kan bidra till kompetensförsörjningen och dess utmaningar. Inom Europeiska socialfonden har nya samarbetsformer och metoder utvecklats, där några organisationer har fungerat som intermediärer mellan aktörer och på olika sätt bidragit till att möta individers och arbetslivets kompetensbehov.

    Begreppet intermediär har studerats inom forskningen inom olika´områden, men deras betydelse för regional kompetensförsörjning inom den svenska arbetsmarknaden är tämligen outforskat. Utifrån en studie tillsammans med ett antal socialfondsprojekt och regionala företrädare i två regioner samt lärdomar från ett lärande nätverk syftar rapporten till att bidra med kunskap om intermediärernas funktion och potential i det regionala kompetensförsörjningsarbetet.

    Outsourcing HR Services: The Role of Human Resource Intermediaries2012In: European Journal of Training and Development, ISSN 2046-9012, E-ISSN 2046-9020, Vol. 36, no 8, p. 772-790Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – In this article, the area of interest is an emerging type of organisation called human resource intermediaries (HRIs), which focus on delivering human resource (HR) services to public sector organisations and private companies. The purpose of this article is, thus, to explore HRIs as deliverers of HR services. More specifically, the article will seek to analyse and discuss how employees in HRIs understand their role as providers of HR services to their clients and what characterises the HRIs' work and the nature of their assignments.

    Design/methodology/approach – The empirical foundation of this article comprises a longitudinal case study of three Swedish HRI organisations. The data consist of interviews with 19 managers and consultants from the three HRIs.

    Findings – The results indicate that HRIs want to take on a broad, strategic and proactive role in relation to their customers. However, due to external and internal constraints, such as the HRIs' internal work processes, the nature of their assignments and the client's HR competence level, the roles that HRIs play in practice tend to be more specific, operational and reactive.

    Practical implications – An important challenge for HRIs is to avoid being overwhelmed by short‐term and reactive assignments that deliver value to their clients through the use of standard solutions. Long‐term relationships, the structures of ownership and membership, and the availability of unique networks can also prove to be valuable for clients.

    Originality/value – This study explores HRIs as an emerging type of organisation within the area of human resources. Compared with HR consultants who specialise in handling specific HR‐related problems, HRIs target the entire flow of human resources in, within, and out of client organisations.

    Towards a quality management competence framework: Exploring needed competencies in quality management2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and purpose –Several studies and recent reports address emerging and expanding needs for Quality Management (QM) impacting the professional practices and activities and maybe also the conceptual underpinnings of QM. An integrative approach for QM, facilitating both operational and strategic leverage has been described as becoming increasingly more important. However, few empirical studies have focused on what QM professionals actually do with even fewer studies focusing on what it actually takes to do QM-work, i.e. the competencies of QM.

    The purpose of this paper is thus to extend the conceptual understanding of QM by introducing an activity and practice-based terminology for describing competencies of QM work in contemporary Swedish organisations and to create a conceptual competence framework suited for successful QM.

    Design/methodology/approach –This paper is based on a cross-case qualitative study design incorporating four Swedish large size organizations where designated QM professionals (n= 34) were targeted, selected and interviewed.

    Findings –Four generic QM roles are posited: centralised & strategic, centralised & operational, decentralised & strategic and decentralised & operational roles. A QM competence framework incorporating four essential QM competence dimensions is presented: the human, the contextual, the methods & process and the development competence dimensions. Competencies are discussed in relation to the “production dilemma” of QM and the emerging need of more integrative and business excellence-oriented QM.

    Towards a quality management competence framework: exploring needed competencies in quality management2019In: Total Quality Management and Business Excellence, ISSN 1478-3363, E-ISSN 1478-3371Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and purpose Few empirical studies have focused on what quality management practitioners actually do, with even fewer studies focusing on what it actually takes to do quality management work, i.e. the competencies of quality management. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a competence-based terminology for describing general competencies of quality management work in organisations and to create a competence framework in order to understand what is needed to be a quality management practitioner.

    Design/methodology/approach This paper is based on an embedded, qualitative multiple-case study design incorporating four Swedish large size organisations where designated quality management practitioners (n= 33) were selected and interviewed.

    Findings A quality management competence framework incorporating four main quality management competence dimensions is presented: the human, the methods & process, the conceptual and the contextual competence dimensions. Four generic quality management role responsibilities are also posited: centralised & strategic, centralised & operational, local & strategic and local & operational role responsibilities. The competencies and role responsibilities are discussed in relation to the notion of emergent quality management and the emerging need of more integrative and business excellence-oriented quality management.

    Four facets of learning in performance measurement2018In: International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management, ISSN 1741-0401, E-ISSN 1758-6658, Vol. 67, no 9, p. 1608-1624Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this study is to contribute to a better understanding of the role of learning in performance measurement. Design/methodology/approach – We develop a theoretical framework combining workplace learning theory with purposes of performance measurement. We elaborate this framework empirically by identifying critical incidents from a case set within a context containing a broad range of different performance measurement activities. Finally, we discuss the results and the possible implications for using our theoretical framework in order to better understand facets of learning regarding the design of performance measurement. Findings – Workplace learning theory provides a deeper understanding of how the mechanisms of performance measurements support control or improvement purposes. We propose a tentative framework for learning as a driver for performance measurement and four facets of learning are identified: reproductive, rule-oriented, goal-oriented and creative learning. Research limitations/implications – The empirical material is limited to the healthcare context and further studies are needed in order to validate the findings in other settings. Practical implications – We argue that all managers must consider what kind of learning environment and what kind of learning outcomes best serve the interests of their organisation. Purposeful and carefully designed organisational arrangements and learning environments are more likely to induce intended learning outcomes. Originality/value –Previous connections between the fields of ‘performance measurement’ and ‘workplace learning’ often lack any deeper conceptualisations or problematisations of the concept of learning. In this paper, we provide a more nuanced discussion about the process of learning in performance measurement, which may provide a basis for further research and scholarly attention.

    Performance measurement as a driver for learning and improvement in organizations2016In: 23rd EurOMA Conference, Trondheim, June 17-22, 2016, Trondheim: NTNU, Department of Production and Quality Engineering and the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management , 2016, p. 117-117, article id PMM-5-2Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to contribute to better understanding about levels of learning found in the practices of performance measurement. We create a conceptual model merging established workplace learning theory with operations management purposes of performance measurement. By integrating discretion and organizational logics we interconnect purposes of either control or improvement with four levels of workplace learning: Reproductive, rule-oriented, goal-oriented and creative learning. We empirically elaborate our model using case related critical incidents involving performance measurements. The findings suggest that a conceptual understanding of workplace learning theory meliorates the design and practice of performance measurements for improvement purposes.

    Human Resource Development: att utveckla individer, grupper och organisationer2018 (ed. 2)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    För många organisationer är det en utmaning att leva upp till formuleringar om att personalen är deras viktigaste resurs. Denna bok visar vägar från ord till handling.


    Här ges en grundlig introduktion till ämnesområdet human resource development (HRD) som handlar om att utveckla individer, arbets­grupper och organisationer i arbetslivet. Författarna presenterar också en forsknings­­baserad ansats för hur yrkesverksamma praktiker kan ta sig an ett utvecklings­inriktat personalarbete.


    Human resource development vänder sig till studenter på högskole­utbildningar, på både grundnivå och avancerad nivå, där frågor om utveckling av mänskliga resurser i arbetslivet är centrala. Boken riktar sig också till chefer med personalansvar och HR-praktiker som vill arbeta mer utvecklingsinriktat utifrån tillgänglig forskning.

    The interactive researcher as a virtual participant: A Habermasian interpretation2013In: Action Research, ISSN 1476-7503, E-ISSN 1741-2617, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 194-212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the role of the interactive researcher by drawing on Jürgen Habermas’s theory of communicative action to develop the concept of virtual participant. An ideal interactive research project is used to explore the issues faced by interactive researchers in three phases – initial, implementation and conclusion. In each phase, an interactive research project is used to demonstrate the issues that are discussed. First, this article argues that the concept of communicative rationality can be helpful in understanding how mutually trusting relationships between practitioners and researchers can be established at the beginning of a project. Second, it argues that the idea of taking a virtual stand on validity claims can be used during a project to engage a performative attitude and achieve mutual understanding with actors in the practice system. Third, this article argues that the concept of the virtual participant can explain how the interactive researcher can engage in performative action without becoming captive to the practice system. The concept of the virtual participant helps to enhance understanding of the complexity of the role of the interactive researcher.

    Att organisera och leda kompetensförsörjning och lärande2014In: Lärande i arbetslivet: möjligheter och utmaningar: en vänbok till Per-Erik Ellström / [ed] Henrik Kock, Linköping: Linköpings universitet , 2014, p. 310-331Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    frågor om kompetensförsörjning står idag högt upp på många organisationers agendor. Det föränderliga arbetslivet med flexibla och slimmade organisationer antas ställa större krav på det lärande som sker i dagligt arbete. Att ha rätt kompetens och förmågan att lära nytt ses exempelvis som avgörande för att kunna hantera införandet av nya produktionskoncept, för att kunna utveckla innovativa produkter och tjänster, samt för att ställa om verksamheter när det omgivande förändringstrycket blir för starkt. Lärande och kompetensutveckling är givetvis också centralt ur ett individperspektiv. För att kunna röra sig horisontellt och vertikalt på arbetsmarknaden krävs att individen har en attraktiv kompetens, men också förmågan att snabbt lära sig det som krävs för att få en anställning. I ett större perspektiv är också individers livslånga bildningsresor avgörande för samhällelig utveckling.

    I detta kapitel fokuseras två aktörer som ofta lyfts fram som viktiga för att skapa goda lärmiljöer i organisationer, det vill säga förutsättningar för att lärande ska kunna uppstå, omsättas i handling och spridas vidare. Den ena kategorin utgörs av HR-praktiker och den andra av chefer. Utgångspunkten är att HR-praktiker kan skapa förutsättningar för lärande i hela organisationen, men att mycket av deras arbete handlar om att underlätta för chefer att i sin tur främja sina medarbetares lärande. Därmed anläggs ett systemperspektiv på hur processer som kompetensförsörjning, lärande och ledarskap är sammanlänkade och hur de skapas och återskapas i relationer mellan strukturer och aktörer. Ett problem i den mer ”mainstream”-orienterade HR- och  ledarskapsforskningen är att det finns många som tycker sig veta svaret på hur detta ska gå till, men ganska få som studerat hur det faktiskt ser ut i praktiken. Ambitionen är att i kapitlet ge exempel på och diskutera hur HR-praktiker och chefer kan leda kompetensförsörjning och lärande i det dagliga arbetet, samt under vilka betingelser ett sådant ledarskap kan växa fram.

    Kapitlet disponeras på följande sätt. I nästa avsnitt görs en teoretisk utflykt i syfte att tydliggöra vad som gömmer sig bakom de begrepp som används i kapitlet. Därefter riktas fokus mot HR-arbete i organisationer och mer specifikt med inriktning mot att styra och leda kompetensförsörjning. Sedan följer ett avsnitt som handlar om chefers arbete med att skapa förutsättningar för lärande i organisationer. Avslutningsvis förs dessa båda aktörers arbete samman i en avslutande diskussion.

    Projektarbete i högre utbildning – några kritiska reflektioner2010In: Att bedöma och sätta betyg - En utvecklingskonferens om traditioner, krav och nytänkande vid LiU, 11 mars 2010 / [ed] Anna Bjuremark, Linköping: Centrum för undervisning och lärande , 2010, p. 91-96Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Avsikten med denna rapport är att ge inblickar i några fundament om bedömningsprocesser och bedömningsinstrument i samband med högskolans examinationer. Vi beskriver hur förändrade förutsättningar i samband med Bolognaöverenskommelsen och de nationella anpassningarna har trängt ner i den vardagliga myllan vid Linköpings universitet. Vi vill ge exempel på hur man tänker kring bedömning och betygssättning och hur man konstruerar och tillämpar instrument för att avgöra om studenterna har uppnått den förväntade kunskapen. Vi gör det, dels genom att ge en bakgrund till de förväntningar som numera ställs på oss som delaktiga eller ansvariga för exarninationsprocesser, dels genom att ett antal verksamma lärare delar med sig av sina kunskaper och erfarenheter från sina områden. Vi ställer frågor som vilka som är de bra exemplen och vad vi bör undvika? Vi söker också kritiskt reflektera över styrningskonceptet som sådant och ställa frågor som hur alternativen ser ut, har vi några valmöjligheter och hur kan de beskrivas i så fall? Förhoppningen är att det sammantaget kan leda till, att vi tillsammans med kollegor och studenter utvecklar normer för hur vi kan förhålla oss till de nya förutsättningarna, som i det här fallet handlar om att förbättra våra bedömningsprocesser och göra våra bedömningskriterier än mer synliga för både oss själva och varandra. Med det som bakgrund kliver vi nu in i vår händelsehistoria.

    The Leader as a Facilitator of Learning at Work: A study of learning-oriented leadership in two industrial firms2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concerns the leader as a facilitator of learning at work. More specifically, the aim of the study is to increase knowledge about leadership in relation to co-workers’ learning and development at the workplace. The focus is on the leaders’ notions of learning-oriented leadership, their actions in daily work and on the factors that may enable and constrain learning-oriented leadership.

    The theoretical framework is structured around a review and analysis of three leadership research traditions: studies of effective leadership, studies of managerial work, and critical studies of leadership.

    The research reported in the thesis is based on an interactive research approach comprising case studies of two industrial firms. The main empirical data have been collected in interviews with leaders. In addition, the empirical material includes observations of leaders and studies of documents.

    The results indicate that the leaders view learning and the development of their co-workers as important issues and that they use a number of different activities to facilitate learning. Based on the degree of formalization these activities can be characterized as planned, partially planned and spontaneous. When working with the co-workers’ learning the leaders alternate between acting as supporters, educators and confronters. Furthermore, learning-oriented leadership is influenced by factors such as the co-workers’ attitudes and motivation, the leaders’ views of learning and development, the presence of learning issues on the organizational agenda and the design of the organizations’ production systems.

    To conclude, the leaders in both companies can be seen as facilitators of learning. However, their leadership is mainly performance-oriented and focused on adaptive learning. There are traces of development-oriented leadership as well, but these patterns are not as apparent. For instance, the facilitation of critical reflection associated with developmental learning is not very common for the leaders in either of the cases.

    Leadership as a balancing act between performance- and development-orientation: a study of managers’ and co-workers’ understanding of leadership in an industrial organisation2013In: Leadership & Organization Development Journal, ISSN 0143-7739, E-ISSN 1472-5347, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 222-237Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this article is to revisit data from a previous study of leadership in an industrial company that was in the process of implementing a process-oriented, team-based form of organisation. Based on these data, it aims to explore the assumption that process-orientation implies “new” leadership behaviours and relationships with co-workers. More specifically, it aims to focus on analysing how the managers and co-workers understood and practised the ideas about leadership for learning and development that were introduced in connection with the new production organisation. The purpose is also to determine what factors constrained and facilitated these leadership practises.

    Design/methodology/approach – The study was conducted with a large industrial company using case study methodology. The empirical material consists of 35 qualitative interviews with production managers (n=4), first-line managers (n=14), and operators (n=17).

    Findings – The results indicate that performance-oriented leadership with a focus on facilitating adaptive learning is emphasised more than development-oriented leadership, which facilitates critical reflection and innovative learning. Furthermore, the study suggests that the administrative workload greatly limits the potential for development-oriented leadership. Overall, first-line managers appear to have more in common with system administrators than leaders.

    Practical implications – This study highlights the need to find a balance between performance and development in organisations. Specifically, there is a need for leaders to create opportunities and support for increased developmental learning at work. It is also necessary to emphasise critical reflection both in connection with daily operations and in the formal education of co-workers and leaders.

    Originality/value – This study demonstrates the gap between the rhetoric of new leadership and the organisational realities that leaders experience in their daily work. At the same time, the study points to the dual nature of leadership for learning and the constraints on its realisations in practise.

    Utvärdering och mätning av kompetensutveckling och lärande i organisationer: En kunskapsöversikt2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En central fråga inom HR-området idag är hur olika HR-processer bidrar till organisationers målsättningar, strategier och utvecklingsarbete. I denna rapport presenteras resultaten av en delstudie i ett HELIX-projekt som fokuserar värdeskapande HR-arbete i praktiken. Denna delstudie riktar sig specifikt mot att förstå vad som kännetecknar HR-medarbetares arbete med att mäta och följa upp kompetensutvecklings- och lärandeprocesser. Delstudien har utvecklats tillsammans med ett stort industriföretag som har ett stort intresse för frågor om hur man säkerställer att satsningar på kompetensutveckling och lärande leder till önskat resultat. Syftet med rapporten är att bidra med ökad kunskap om HR-funktionens arbete med att mäta och utvärdera satsningar på kompetensutveckling och lärande samt att diskutera hur detta arbete påverkar legitimiteten och statusen för HR som yrke. Mer precist är avsikten att presentera, analysera och diskutera teorier, tidigare forskning och det empiriska material som samlats in i projektet.

    Projektet har bedrivits utifrån en interaktiv forskningsansats vilket innebär att identifiering av forskningsproblem och design av empiriska studier bygger på nära samverkan mellan forskare och representanter för den studerade verksamheten. Den övergripande designen utgår från fallstudiemetodologi på så sätt att vi genom metodtriangulering sökt skapa en bred förståelse för projektets forskningsfrågor. Underlaget i rapporten består av 1) en litteraturöversikt som omfattade såväl teorier och begrepp som tidigare empirisk forskning inom området, 2) ”benchlearning” med andra organisationer i syfte att hitta verksamheter som har innovativa synsätt på hur resultat och effekter av kompetensutveckling kan mätas och/eller utvärderas, 3) intervjuer med HR-medarbetare för att skapa en bild av hur dessa olika kategorier av anställda ser på och pratar om frågor om kompetensutveckling och lärande, 4) granskning av företagets medarbetarundersökning i syfte att skapa en bild av vilken information som samlas in i organisationen rörande lärmiljö och lärandemöjligheter och hur denna information kan användas i organisationens fortsatta arbete med dessa frågor, 5) en workshop genomförd tillsammans med representanter för företaget där resultaten av projektet analyserades.

    Resultaten av litteraturöversikten visar att området kompetensutveckling och lärande är relativt välbeforskat och att det finns en samlad bild över vad lärande innebär samt under vilka organisatoriska förutsättningar som lärande kan befrämjas. Det som däremot ännu inte är speciellt utforskat är hur kompetensutveckling och lärande kan mätas och utvärderas. Här står fortfarande teorier som utvecklades i slutet på 1950-talet i en särställning. Vidare finns det ett begränsat antal empiriska studier med fokus på mätning och utvärdering av kompetensutveckling och lärande i en arbetslivskontext. De studier som granskats i litteraturöversikten visar dock att det finns flera intressanta vetenskapligt grundade mätinstrument och nyckeltal som organisationer kan inspireras av. Däremot finns det ingen modell, teori eller instrument som enkelt går att plocka in i en organisation, utan snarare krävs det anpassningar till lokala förutsättningar såsom organisationsstrukturer och kulturer.

    Resultaten av benchlearningen visar en stor spridning mellan de fyra organisationer som jämförts. Några organisationer har en mycket begränsad användning av nyckeltal för lärande och kompetensutveckling och en av organisation har en omfattande uppsättning av nyckeltal som används på flera olika sätt. Jämförelsen visar att det verkar finnas en slags basal nivå där många organisationer har nyckeltal relaterade till arbetsmiljö (t.ex. sjuktal) eller olika typer av kostnader (t.ex. för kurser) medan nyckeltal kopplade till resultat och effekter av kompetensutveckling och lärande är betydligt mer ovanliga. Utifrån de uppföljningsintervjuer som genomfördes i de fyra organisationerna angavs flera skäl för varför organisationerna inte i någon högre utsträckning använder nyckeltal för kompetensutveckling och lärande. Här nämndes bland annat att ledningen inte känner behov av nyckeltal, att ledningen saknar kunskap om att det finns nyckeltal, att HR-medarbetare saknar kompetens och motivation för att använda nyckeltal samt att det är mycket komplicerat att mäta förändrade ”beteenden” och ”resultat” av lärande och kompetensutveckling.

    Resultatet av intervjuerna visar att kompetensutveckling och lärande ses som viktigt inom organisationen. Vidare beskrivs i resultatkapitlet att de metoder som främst används för att utvärdera och följa upp kompetensutvecklingsprocesser är utvecklingssamtal, kursutvärderingar samt till viss del även medarbetarenkäten. I övrigt lyfts även andra metoder där användningen av dessa varierar i form och utsträckning. Det är i huvudsak kompetensmatriser som används för att kartlägga kompetenser och identifiera kompetensgap och ett nytt kurshanteringssystem som ska användas för att kartlägga kompetenser, kompetensbehov samt visa på kurser och utvecklingsvägar. Resultatet visar också utvecklingsbehov när det kommer till strukturen för uppföljning och utvärdering inom organisationen. Det finns ingen tydlighet i vem som bestämmer vad som ska utvärderas, vad syftet med utvärderingen är eller vad den ska användas till. Det leder till att genomförandet skiftar mycket i kvalitet mellan olika chefer och kursansvariga. Ibland genomförs den inte alls om det inte prioriteras av de inblandade. Något som lyfts är att det saknas en efterfrågan från ledning när det gäller uppföljning vilket bidrar till att frågan inte prioriteras på en övergripande nivå.

    Resultatet av granskningen av företagets medarbetarundersökning visar att frågorna generellt har medelstarka samband med varandra. Vidare tycks dessa frågor fånga fem olika dimensioner. En av dessa dimensioner handlar om den lärmiljö som organisationen erbjuder och hur klimatet för lärande ser ut. Även ledarskap framkommer som en egen dimension. Medarbetarundersökningen skulle därmed kunna användas initialt för att mäta och inventera lärmiljön i organisationen, men kan även användas för att undersöka hur denna är relaterad till andra typer av fenomen. Som exempel analyseras relationen mellan ledarskap, lärandeklimat och arbetslagets produktivitet, liksom sambanden mellan enkätens empirigenerade dimensioner och arbetslagets produktivitet. Eftersom materialet är insamlat vid samma tillfälle är det dock omöjligt att uttala sig om orsak och verkan, men om möjlighet finns kan organisationen använda tidigare insamlade och framtida medarbetarundersökningar för att studera hur lärmiljön förändras över tid och hur olika fenomen är relaterade till dessa förändringar.

    Utifrån det insamlade materialet kan ett antal slutsatser dras. För det första ser vi för HR-funktionen en stor potential i att använda mätningar och utvärderingar för att visa på värdet av tänkta eller genomförda satsningar på lärande och kompetensutveckling. Kunskaper om mätning och utvärdering kan således betraktas som en viktig pusselbit i HR-funktionens arbete med att skapa värde i organisationen. Denna potential är dock inte fullt ut realiserade i de organisationer som medverkade i studien. Ytterligare en slutsats är att användande av mätningar och utvärderingar inte är en fråga som enbart ska ligga på HR-funktionens bord. Snarare visar resultaten på vikten av att involvera ledningen för att få mandat, resurser och styrning. Utan ledningens engagemang blir det också svårt att se nyttan på organisationsnivå. I rapporten presenteras flera exempel på nyckeltal och verktyg som HR-medarbetare skulle kunna använda. Det finns dock inte någon ”best practice”, utan det krävs lokala anpassningar.

    Vad gäller fortsatt forskning finns behov av fler kvalitativa, longitudinella studier av HR-arbete i praktiken samt studier som involverar ”kunden/mottagaren”, det vill säga att studera vilka behov chefer i linjen har av information som kan erhållas genom mätningar och utvärderingar. Ytterligare en möjlighet till fortsatt forskning är att utveckla en skala för att studera organisationers lärmiljöer.

    Förhoppningsvis kan rapporten bidra med kunskaper både för HR-medarbetare och chefer i organisationer när det gäller framgångsfaktorer och hinder för arbetet med att mäta och utvärdera lärande och kompetensutveckling. För HR-medarbetare tycks det också finnas ett behov av kompetensutveckling inom området. Detta är en relevant uppgift för universitet och högskolor och för utbildningskonsulter inom HR-området.

    Accelerating and braking in times of economic crisis: Organisational learning in a top management team2012In: European Journal of Training and Development, ISSN 2046-9012, E-ISSN 2046-9020, Vol. 36, no 9, p. 930-944Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this article is to present the results of a study of an industrial company's top management team (TMT) that fought to survive an economic crisis. Specifically, the article seeks to focus on describing the TMT's composition, group processes, and work during a period of high external pressure; analysing the TMT's work in terms of an organisational learning process; and discussing factors that may have enabled the TMT to make appropriate strategic decisions during the crisis.

    Design/methodology/approach – The empirical foundation of this article is a longitudinal case study of a Swedish industrial company during the economic recession of the late 2000s. Data were collected through observations of meetings involving the TMT from 2009 to 2011 and through semi‐structured interviews with TMT managers.

    Findings – Two empirical themes – “accelerating” and “braking” – illustrate actions taken by the TMT during the crisis. Accelerating involves activities aimed at accelerating the company out of the downturn, whereas braking involves activities aimed at reducing costs. The findings suggest that the TMT exhibited the ability to handle processes of exploration and exploitation during the crisis and that learning occurred at the individual, group, and organisational levels.

    Practical implications – A practical implication of this study is the importance for TMTs to work simultaneously with processes of exploration and exploitation when fighting to survive an economic crisis and to designate time for learning processes in daily work.

    Originality/value – The study contributes to the field by empirically showing the processes of organisational learning in practice and by highlighting the relevance of organisational learning research to understanding the performance and work of top management teams in organisations.
