    Innovation and entrepreneurship – new themes for new times2010In: Annals of Innovation & Entrepreneurship, ISSN 2000-7396, E-ISSN 2000-7396, ISSN ISSN 2000-7396, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 1-3Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout history, innovators and entrepreneurs have had a tremendous impact on development, exploration, trade, education, science, and integration. During the 20th century, innovation and entrepre-neurship have been regarded as key drivers in technological progress and productivity development worldwide. New radical innovations from new fields of knowledge such as information and communication technologies and biotechnology have emerged to influence everyday life for most people. Realizing this, policy makers as well as individuals argue that innovative and entrepreneurial change processes need to be further implemented on the micro as well as macro levels in society (Abouzeedan, Busler, & Hedner, 2009; Busenitz, Gomez, & Spencer, 2000). The study of innovation is therefore likely to be an increasingly important topic in, for example, economics, business, entrepreneurship, tech-nology, engineering, medicine, environmental biology, sociology, design, and reregional development (cf. Etzkowitz & Klofsten, 2005).

    Science and Technology Parks: A study of value creation for park tenants2019In: Journal of Technology Transfer, ISSN 0892-9912, E-ISSN 1573-7047, Vol. 44, no 4, p. 1256-1272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The literature on Science and Technology Parks (STPs) is growing rapidly and, despite the positive impact of STPs on firms found by many studies, it remains unclear how STPs create value for tenants. In this paper, we study the STP supply side through a case study in a Swedish region. We identify two components of the business support provided by parks: a configuration-oriented component, and a process-oriented component. The former refers to the static design of the business support, and the latter to the active, hands-on support provided by parks’ management. Both components must be planned carefully in order to deliver value to tenants. We also discuss some implications for policy and managers.

    Firm growth and survival, from a 14- year perspective: A cohort analysis2017In: Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research, ISSN 0740-7416, Vol. 37, no 16, p. 358-363, article id 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines whether early growth is important for the short- and long-term survival and development of new firms. For this purpose, we use registry data for a specific cohort of Swedish firms that tracks their development until their exit, or up to 14 years, at which point only 8% of the firms remain. We find growth to be clearly associated with increased survival of the firms, that the number of employees (in the previous year) is positively correlated with survival in following years, and somewhat surprisingly, that subsidiaries face a significantly larger hazard of closure than independent firms.

    Sustainability-profiled incubators and securing the inflow of tenants – the case of Green Garage Berlin2017In: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 157, p. 76-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Currently there is an attention in research and practise on entrepreneurial ecosystems, and how these, often using incubators, could support sustainable development through new firm start-ups. Despite the popularity of incubators in the literature and practise, few studies have focused on sustainable incubators in general or, more specifically, on processes that ensure a steady flow of tenants. Thus, this paper investigates how sustainable incubators ensures their inflow of tenants, how they organize their activities and whether the incubator environment affect tenant recruitment. A case study approach analysing the sustainability oriented incubator Green Garage Berlin have been used to generate an understanding of selection and recruitment processes as well the influence of external environments. The results show that regional and inter-regional co-operation, together with a well-planned, structured pre-incubation process, are requirements for securing an inflow of tenants to sustainable incubators. Incubator reputation and sufficient long term funding is also a key to success. A good practice case as Green Garage cannot simply be replicated, but require openness to continue the learning process and adapting the knowledge to be transferred to local conditions.

    Occupational Control on Drift—National and Local Intervention in Clinical Work at Emergency Departments2017In: Professions & Professionalism, ISSN 1893-1049, E-ISSN 1893-1049, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Swedish emergency departments, various initiatives have been introduced in order to reduce long waiting times for patients: lean methods, targets for waiting times related to revenues, interprofessional teams, and different forms of triage systems. This study focuses on the physicians’ views on dilemmas related to these interventions. The study is based on the interviews with 14 physicians in four emergency departments. The interviews have been analysed thematically and presented in the form of brief narratives. The study follows changes from clinical practice to the national policy level. The changes appear to be ineffective or counterproductive—waiting times are rather getting longer, but the measures have a number of other effects. Decisions are taken at a central level and are carried out by means of rules, incentives, and projects and end in the medical profession being displaced from the central position they have held in the working processes of health care.

    Science Parks - University interaction: A literature2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the history of Science Parks, many studies have shown that Science Parks have ceased to be mere facilitators of physical spaces, to become important providers of services and resources to their tenants. Considering that skilled professionals are one of the most sought after resources by technology and knowledge intensive firms, Science Parks have dedicated numerous activities and means in order to become even more attractive to talents. In this context, universities situated in or next to Science Parks play a key role in developing and attracting talents to Science Parks and to its firms as well as to the region, functioning as a regional node of a large national and international network of universities. Science Parks and universities are vital parts of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of a region and have many complementarities. In this study, we review the literature regarding the relationship existing between Science Parks and universities and the ways in which they can collaborate. Talent, recruitment, and entrepreneurship issues are addressed as the building blocks of these interactions. Other stakeholders, inside and outside a Science Park, are also analysed in order to widen the perspective to the ecosystem of actors involved, allowing a better understanding of the role, the interests, the means and the implications of each one. The purpose of this study is to understand and qualify the university's role in attracting and developing talent that firms in Science Parks can recruit later on. We identify the types of interactions occurring between Science Parks and their nearby universities. We strive to find what kinds of skills are considered relevant by employers, and to describe the initiatives developed by universities and Science Parks – separately and together – aiming at drawing, developing and retaining talents. We also seek to identify who are the actors involved; private or public organisations, or people embodying specific functions in these organisations. In the end, we recognize and point out policy implications, concerning both universities and Science Parks.

    Universities and Science Parks: Engagements and Interactions in Developing and Attracting Talent2019In: Developing Engaged and Entrepreneurial Universities: Theories, Concepts and Empirical Findings / [ed] Thorsten Kliewe, Tobias Kesting, Carolin Plewa, Thomas Baaken, Singapore: Springer, 2019, p. 151-169Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many studies have shown that they have ceased to be mere facilitators of physical spaces to become important providers of services and resources to their tenants. Universities situated in or next to them play a key role in getting engaged in the development and the attraction of talent to Science Parks, to their tenant firms as well as to the region. Considering that skilled professionals are one of the resources that companies seek the most, Science Parks have dedicated numerous activities and means to become even more attractive to talented individuals, who can especially be found in entrepreneurial universities. In this study, we review the literature regarding the interactions existing between Science Parks or their tenants and their local universities. Talent attraction and entrepreneurship issues are addressed as the building blocks of these interactions. We strive to identify types of interactions that could differ in function of the maturity levels of the firms since their aims are not the same: at an early stage, firms tend to focus more on growth, whereas at a later stage, they tend to focus more on their development. We then point out policy implications, concerning both entrepreneurial or engaged universities and Science Parks.

    Future developments for Science Parks: Attracting and developing talent2017In: Industry and Higher Education, ISSN 2043-6858, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 156-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the years, science parks have developed and improved their processes to offer better support to their tenants and promote the growth of the region in which they are located. Since regional growth is closely associated with groups of talented people, science parks carry out various activities at the company or individual level to attract and recruit talent. In order to understand how such activities have been and are being performed at Mja¨rdevi Science Park in Sweden, the authors highlight and analyse four talent-related cases. Their aim is to identify how talent can be attracted or recruited and to consider the stakeholders, their relationships and their motivations. The results confirm the importance to a science park of being close to a student community and of being connected to an international network with a well-recognized brand.

    Science Parks and the attraction of talents: Activities and challenges2019In: Triple Helix Journal, p. 1-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores activities undertaken by Science Parks to attract talent for their tenants. Despite the importance of accessing talent, there are very few studies focusing on this research area. The data in this investigation comes from seven cases studies on talent attraction activities carried out by three Science Parks in Sweden. We show that the parks conduct many different activities to attract talent including headhunting key personnel for start-ups, organising establishment platforms for foreign companies, and facilitating the exchange of knowledge and talent with higher education institu- tions. Science Parks house companies of different sizes, ages, and business orienta- tions and therefore, park managers should be sensitive to the real needs of tenant firms when performing talent attraction activities.

    Science Parks, talent attraction and stakeholder involvement: an international study2019In: Journal of Technology Transfer, ISSN 0892-9912, E-ISSN 1573-7047, p. 1-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One aspect of Science Parks development that has come into focus is the attraction of talent, which could include attracting specific expertise, making it easier for firms to be established and reach skilled workers. In order to encompass different contexts, both economic and cultural, a questionnaire was sent to 120 Science Parks, of which 59 (49%) replied. The study included 22 variables, including eleven independent variables according to Science Park stakeholders and characteristics when selecting talent for tenant firms, five control variables, and six variables of Science Park success dimensions. The results show that the characteristics of talent contribute to the park’s success. Universities are the primary source of talent, and the government has a critical role in promoting collaboration between firms and universities. Therefore, park managers should promote links with local universities and the student community as well as strengthen their relationship with government representatives at all levels to receive the necessary support for park development.

    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.

    Hållbart sjukdomsförebyggande arbete?: En studie av hur man arbetar med sjukdomsförebyggande arbete i två vårdsystem i USA2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns en stor enighet om att vårdens uppdrag behöver förändras för att möta behoven hos befolkningen på ett bättre sätt. Hälsoläget i de rika delarna av världen är i hög grad beroende av den demografiska utvecklingen (med åldrande befolkning) och våra levnads­vanor, som gör att vi drabbas av livsstilssjukdomar. I WHOs nuvarande globala strategi för “health for all” ingår hörnpelare som integrerad befolkningsorienterad hälso- och sjukvård där aspekter som prevention, sjukdomsförebyggande, patientmedverkan lyfts fram (WHO 2015). I EUs forsknings- och utvecklingsprogram och strategiska planering stödjer man projekt som visar hur man kan identifiera, sprida och stödja ”best practices” för kostnadseffektiv prevention vad beträffar rökning, missbruk av alkohol, övervikt och HIV/AIDS (EU 2016).

    I Sverige har vi utvecklat nationella riktlinjer för sjukdomsförebyggande metoder. Rikt­linjerna har tagits fram av Socialstyrelsen för att stärka det sjukdomsförebyggande arbetet i vården och därigenom förbättra patienternas levnadsvanor. I riktlinjerna fokuseras fyra områden – tobak, riskbruk av alkohol, fysisk aktivitet och matvanor. Landstingen och kommunerna, har sedan introduktionen av riktlinjerna år 2011 arbetat med implemente­ringen. Huvudmännen har kommit olika långt i arbetet men bland annat utifrån den an­strängande situationen i stora delar av den svenska vården har det varit svårt att få till­räckligt genomslag för arbetet. Som ett led i insatserna för att stärka upp det sjukdoms­förebyggande arbetet i Sverige har Socialstyrelsen uppdragit åt Linköpings universitet att belysa hur de sjukdomsförebyggande insatserna hanteras i två framstående hälso- och sjukvårdsorganisationer i USA. Den huvudsakliga frågeställningen är hur man organise­rar arbetet med det sjukdomsförebyggande arbetet. Uppdraget innefattar även en genom­gång av internationell vetenskaplig litteratur med syftet att komplettera de två ovan nämn­da fallstudierna. Socialstyrelsen vill härigenom bidra med ökad kunskap om förutsätt­ningar och metoder för att arbeta med sjukdomsförebyggande metoder i kliniskt arbete, företrädesvis primärvården. Denna studie vill därför bidra till kunskapsunderlag om hur realiseringen av de sjukdomsförebyggande metoderna kan ske.

    En utgångspunkt för att kunna ringa in de relevanta frågeställningarna ur ett svenskt perspektiv är de resultat som identifierats i tidigare rapport Översättning av riktlinjer – Fallstudier av sjukdomsförebyggande metoders genomslag av Elg m.fl. (2016). Här stu­derades fyra svenska vårdsystem och deras väg fram i det sjukdomsförebyggande arbetet. Fokus i föreliggande arbete är i likhet med tidigare studie de strukturer och processer som används för att styra, leda och organisera det sjukdomsförebyggande arbetet. Vi tar således utgångspunkt i slutsatserna från den tidigare studien och undersöker empiriskt hur man försöker utveckla och vidmakthålla lösningar på Southcentral Foundation (SCF) och Intermountain Healthcare (IH), två vårdsystem i USA.

    De studerade verksamheterna arbetar aktivt med sjukdomsförebyggande arbete, men uti­från delvis olika utgångspunkter. En viktig skillnad är att medan Intermountain Health­care successivt, med nya initiativ, utökar sitt uppdrag, så ligger det sjukdomsförebyggan­de arbetet redan inbäddat i Southcentral Foundations grundläggande idé för primärvår­den. Det är också stora skillnader i patientpopulationernas storlek och socioekonomiska förhållanden. I analysen gör vi jämförelser mellan de två verksamheterna för att identi­fiera likheter och särdrag i hur man organiserar styrning och ledning om och för sjuk­domsförebyggande. Genom denna analys identifierar vi angreppssätt och metoder som vi bedömer kan ha betydelse ur ett svenskt perspektiv.

    Fyra, som vi ser det, viktiga dimensioner av hur man i de två fallen arbetar med sjukdoms­förebyggande presenteras i studien, nämligen 1) strategiskt styrnings- och ledningsfokus på frågorna; 2) lärande om sjukdomsförebyggande arbete i vårdens vardag; 3) skapande av tekniska stödsystem och processer som underlättar för sjukdomsförebyggande arbetet i vardagen; samt 4) vikten av att genom fysisk design av vårdens arbetsplatser underlätta integration av arbetsmoment och tekniska stödsystem och därigenom genomförandet av strategier för sjukdomsförebyggande arbete. Vi ser även i fallstudierna hur digitala designlösningar möjliggör för medskapande av sjukdomsförebyggande metoder hos med­borgare och patienter.

    Såväl Intermountain Healthcare som Southcentral Foundation har visioner som betonar vikten av hälsofrämjande och sjukdomsförebyggande verksamheter, vilket för båda inne­bär att det strategiska styr- och ledningsarbetet också har fokus på sjukdomsförebyggande arbete som en naturlig del i verksamhetens uppdrag.

    Men en vision kan bli verkningslös om det inte finns strategier och ägarskap på högsta ledningsnivå, som aktivt arbetar för realisering av frågorna. I diskussionen lyfter vi fram betydelsen av detta aktiva ägarskap i termer av resurssättande, hur man knyter strategiskt viktiga partners till arbetet, hur man på strategisk nivå prioriterar sjukdomsförebyggande bland olika patientgrupper samt hur man också knyter an analys och uppföljning på strateginivå.

    Att man även prioriterar resurser för förbättringsarbete och forskning med inriktning mot sjukdomsförebyggande skapar också en förutsättning för långsiktighet. Det finns som vi ser det en dynamik och ett tilltagande fokus för just dessa frågor. I rapporten vill vi ringa in och sätta fokus på hur realiseringen av det sjukdomsförebyggande arbetet har gått till – vad som kan ligga bakom ett framgångsrik införande. Det är därför de organisatoriska processerna snarare än innehållet som vi tar fasta på och som vi också vill lyfta fram som avgörande för ett långsiktigt hållbart sjukdomsförebyggande arbete.

    Att lära om och för det sjukdomsförebyggande är en viktig del i framgången. Här ser vi exempel från våra fall där man via kontinuerlig träning och utbildning av de professionel­la lär sig att hantera frågorna genom vidareutbildningsinsatser. Det finns även fasta rutiner för att kontinuerligt träffas över organisationsgränser där frågorna diskuteras av kliniskt verksamma. Vi ser också att man proaktivt arbetar med berättelser om vad som kan åstad­kommas genom sjukdomsförebyggande arbete. Därutöver finns på SCF särskilda funktio­ner inom primärvården som är specialister på att åstadkomma beteendeförändring hos patienter. Denna kompetens vill vi särskilt lyfta fram då den skapar goda möjligheter att hantera de ofta komplexa problem som behöver hanteras i primärvården.

    Både SCF och IH arbetar mycket aktivt för att skapa tekniska stödsystem och processer som underlättar arbetet i vardagen. Ett uttryck som används är ”det ska vara lätt att göra rätt” och i våra amerikanska fallstudier arbetas det aktivt med att identifiera lösningar som faktiskt gör det lättare att göra rätt. Det gäller till exempel arbetsprocedurer för sjuk­domsförebyggande som bäddas in i den elektroniska patientjournalen, kriterier för att identifiera patienter som är i behov av förebyggande insatser samt standardiserade analys- och utvärderingsinstrument som underlättar beslut i vardagens vårdproduktion. Före­trädare för de studerade vårdsystemen menar att nya sätt att kommunicera med patienter behöver utvecklas, ett arbete som man anser ännu är i sin linda. Digitaliseringen lyfts fram som en möjliggörare där tid och rum inte är avgörande för god vård.

    Man pekar speciellt inom SCF också på vikten av den fysiska designen av vårdens arbets­platser. Det handlar om arbetsplatsens miljö och hur funktioner och kompetenser fysiskt är arrangerade i förhållande till varandra. När det gäller stöd för patienters sjukdomsföre­byggande arbete spelar dessa frågor en viktig roll. Framförallt ser vi hur man fysiskt sam­lokaliserar team och hur man rumsligt placerar undersökningsrum, samtalsrum och led­ning av primärvårdspersonal i avsikt att försöka optimera arbetet. Devisen ”out of sight, out of control” beskriver väl hur man anstränger sig för att ordna den fysiska miljön så att patienten konkret sätts i centrum. Inom IH breddas uppdraget bland annat genom att eftersträva lokalisering av sjukdomsförebyggande aktiviteter på nya sätt i kultur- och samhällscentrala institutioner. Dessa förebyggande insatser bedrivs inom ramen för det definierade vårduppdraget.

    Sammanfattningsvis, baserat på de reflekterade iakttagelser vi har gjort i de två amerikanska organisationerna, finns det en rad möjligheter till tips och råd som kan underlätta det svenska arbetet med sjukdomsförebyggande. Dessa sammanfattar vi i följande punkter:

    1. Ha en strategisk avsikt – De sjukdomsförebyggande insatserna har strategisk betydelse i de båda studerade vårdsystemens arbete. Ägarskapet i vårdsystemens ledningar är påtagligt. Detta är nödvändigt för att man ska få till ett hållbart arbete. Ta bort det ägarskapet och frågan är förlorad.
    2. Säkra resurser – framförallt säkerställande av kompetens – behöver prio­riteras för att kunna hantera uppdrag som omfattar sjukdomsförebyggande in­satser. Vi ser att både SFC och IH gör strategiska prioriteringar av resurser till primärvården för att detta uppdrag ska kunna få fotfäste.
    3. Balansera styrningen – Frågan om detaljstyrning av de sjukdomsföre­byggande insatserna är komplex och hanteras olika på SCF och IH. På SCF är ansvaret för beslut om vård i primärvården fördelat till integrerade team som gör en kollektiv, professionell bedömning tillsammans med patient och anhöriga om patientens problem och behov av insatser utifrån önskemål och förmåga att ta emot. På IH är processtyrningen mer betydelsefull. Här arbetar man efter vad som kallas ”shared baselines” och ”care process models”, man kommer överens om hur arbete ska utföras och följer sedan upp processvariationer.
    4. Arbeta behovsstyrt med utgångspunkt i kunskap om patientens problem – Analyser av behov hos befolkningen spelar en viktig roll i hur uppdragen formuleras. Här behöver vårdsystemen fortsätta driva och fördjupa forskning och utvecklingsin­satser i syfte att förstå behoven på ett djupare plan. Utredningar från forskare och kvalificerade utredare är förstås en viktig del i detta, men det finns även behov av att involvera patienter och medborgare på en regelbunden basis för att få större förståelse om var och hur insatser bör sättas in. Det kan till exempel göras genom olika former av segmenteringar av patienter med olika önskemål och behov. Kon­kret kan behovsanalyser genomföras t.ex. med fokusgrupper eller patientinflytan­de i olika beslutsorgan.
    5. Utveckla kompetens i förbättringskunskap – Både SCF och IH har bred kunskap om hur man driver förbättringsarbete på säkra och effektiva sätt. Till exempel genomförs pilottester – en form av lärandestyrt förbättringsarbete – i specifika verksamhets­delar för att maximera lärande och minimera effekterna av misstag. De pekar på risker att tidigt i utvecklingsprocesser genomdriva fullskaliga implementeringar – att istället testa i begränsad skala för att se effekter av satsningar. En annan viktig ingrediens i förbättringskunskapens verktygslåda är kompetens om mätningar. Här behöver man förstå och kunna argumentera syfte och vilka mätningar som behöver genomföras samt hur man använder mätningar för olika former av beslut i organisationen.
    6. Konstnärligt utvärdera insatser för sjukdomsförebyggande – De insatser som görs för att förebygga sjukdom behöver utvärderas ur flera perspektiv. Det är viktigt att den personal som utför arbetet också kan delta i eller åtminstone följa processerna för utvärdering. På så sätt ges möjligheter till lärande. Kompetens för att genom­föra utvärderingar bör byggas i vårdsystemet, exempelvis:
    1. Analys av behovsbilden hos befolkningen och verksamhetens bidrag till dess utveckling.
    2. Analys av värdet av insatserna för det egna vårdsystemet.
    3. Proaktiv identifiering av patienter som bedöms ha behov av sjukdomsföre­byggande insatser.
    4. Utvärdering av insatsernas effektivitet utifrån professionens perspektiv.
    5. Utvärdering av insatsernas effektivitet utifrån patientens perspektiv.
    6. Utvärdering av hur ofta insatser genomförs.
    7. Utvärdering av resultat och effekter av insatser.

    Författarna till denna rapport har inspirerats under vår datainsamling och analys. Svenska initiativ som möjliggör fördjupade jämförelser och analyser av svenska primärvårdssys­tem utifrån exempelvis de studerade amerikanska vårdsystemen skulle kunna göras. Vad skulle då framstå som möjliga utvecklingsområden för svensk primärvård på makro-, meso och mikronivå? Vi skulle också gärna se mer lust och möjligheter till systematiska experiment inom svensk primärvård, i det här fallet inom området sjukdomsförebyggande metoder. Sådana experiment kräver naturligtvis design, metodkunskap, förbättringskun­skap, utvärdering och diskussion av resultat.

    Vi menar att såväl fördjupade jämförelser och experimentsituationer bör gå att ordna i samverkan mellan landsting, kommuner, verksamheter och forskarsamhället för att for­mulera frågeställningar, design för aktiviteter, föreslå metoder för utvärdering, ordna kommunikation runt resultat med mera.

    Two modes of learning-oriented leadership: a study of first-line managers2018In: Journal of Workplace Learning, ISSN 1366-5626, E-ISSN 1758-7859, Vol. 30, no 7, p. 545-561Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this study was to explore what learning-oriented leadership could mean in practice and to identify possible sources of variability in this leadership between first-line managers (FLMs). The empirical basis of the study comprised FLMs in nursing homes for elderly care.

    Design/methodology/approach

    The study was carried out using a sequential mixed-method design based on interviews, observations and documentary analysis.

    Findings

    The study contributes an in-depth analysis of two modes of learning-oriented leadership: development-oriented and production-oriented. The two orientations represent an open and enabling pattern versus a constraining and controlling pattern of leading and organizing employee learning and development. The observed differences in learning-oriented leadership between the FLMs were interpreted in terms of the demands–constraints–choices model proposed by Stewart (1982; 1989).

    Research limitations/implications

    Future research should include data from employees to analyze how the mode of learning-oriented leadership shapes the conditions and opportunities for learning at work.

    Practical implications

    Employee learning and development issues should be clearly linked to business strategies, and it is imperative that senior managers actively support and follow up on FLMs’ work with these issues. Furthermore, there is a strong need for training and development of FLMs – formal and informal – to improve their knowledge of and skills in leading and organizing workplace learning.

    Originality/value

    The study adds to previous research by elaborating what learning-oriented leadership could mean in practice and how it can be theoretically understood.

    Doctoral education and employment in the regions: the case of Catalonia2019In: Regional Studies, Regional Science, ISSN 0080-0694, E-ISSN 2168-1376, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 299-318Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Even though the doctoral degree was originally designed for an academic career, there is an increasingly important labour market for doctorate holders outside academia, mainly because of a shortage of job opportunities within it. Doctoral degrees are granted only by universities; thus, universities are the only suppliers of the doctoral workforce to the labour market. Understanding the needs of non-academic employers is thus crucial if universities are to adapt their doctoral education curriculum. Many studies have analyzed labour markets for doctorate holders at national and transnational scales, but few studies focus on the regional scale. The present study explores regional data for Catalonia in Spain on the employment situation of doctorate holders in order to define the characteristics of the regional, non-academic labour market for doctorate holders. Descriptive statistics suggest a high retention rate of doctorate holders within the region and a large part of doctorate holders (two-thirds) having a job that does not require a doctoral degree. This study highlights the existence of a skills mismatch that might be linked to the preference for a better paid or more stable job, or to the lack of development of skills that represent added value in the eyes of employers. These characteristics can be formulated as hypotheses to be tested in further qualitative or quantitative studies. They have several implications for universities, non-academic employers and regional policy-makers, such as the need to work on the valorization of the doctoral degree in the non-academic labour market.

    The Integration of Collaboration Skills in Doctoral Education2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As for all sorts of education programs, the first aim in doctoral education is to educate students with the skills they need in their professional life, as researchers in this case. Career opportunities for doctoral graduates can be found, obviously, in academia, but also outside it as employed by a non-academic organisation or as self-employed. For each of these career possibilities, collaboration is crucial. However, collaboration skills are not systematically integrated in doctoral education curricula, or at least not explicitly. Doctoral education thus calls for a reform to integrate the teaching of such skills; and this reform can happen only through the definition of collaboration skills and through the implementation of different kinds of collaboration opportunities.

    Transitioning from an economic to a broader social impact: A case study of a Swedish university2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of universities in regional development has been intensively debated in both research and practice. The objective of this study was to examine the possible roles of a university in the development of its region over the long term. A case study approach was adopted through the analysis of a rather young university in a provincial region of Sweden. The region is mainly agricultural but has two large cities where industrial and military activities can be found, as well as IT and R&D activities in two Science Parks and the surrounding ecosystems. A review of the literature dealing with entrepreneurial universities and regional development shows that five main models have been proposed to describe the various roles and interactions of universities with their environments: (i) the knowledge factory, (ii) the relational university, (iii) the entrepreneurial university, (iv) the systemic university, and (v) the engaged university. Interviews with key personnel of the university in relation with regional management and regional stakeholders supplement the case. It is argued that the selected case corresponds most closely to the model of a systemic university but also has characteristics of an engaged university. The current case seems to be in transition between these two models, due mainly to external desires for achieving a broader social impact. This case highlights implications for policymakers and university managers in leading a transition process from one university model to another.

    Aligning doctoral education with local industrial employers’ needs: a comparative case study2019In: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Doctoral education was primarily designed to answer the human resources needs of academia. However, nowadays, increasing numbers of doctorate holders seek employment outside academia. Accordingly, doctoral education can be one of the means by which universities take part in the development of industry in their regions. This study explores whether and how doctoral-level skills are being adapted to the needs of local industrial employers in two different contexts. Two research and science parks situated next to research-intensive universities in Sweden and Spain were chosen as cases for an exploratory and comparative study. In these parks, local industrial employers conduct R&D activities that make them potentially attractive destinations for doctoral graduates. Similarities in the cases were found regarding the process of adaptation of doctoral education at the adjacent universities to meet the industrial employers’ needs in the parks. Discrepancies are also highlighted regarding stages of development, institutional settings, geography and culture. Implications for several stakeholders are formulated to improve the process analysed in the study concerning better alignment of doctoral education with industrial employers’ need for generic skills.

    The roles of quality departments and their influence on business resultsIn: Total quality management and business excellence (Online), ISSN 1478-3363, E-ISSN 1478-3371Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the various roles of quality departments and investigates whether their roles have different influence on business results. Based on a survey of quality managers in 211 Swedish organisations, the analysis identifies four roles of quality departments: firefighters, auditors, process improvers, and orchestrators. The roles vary in their predominant adoption of Quality Management practices ranging from a narrow scope focusing on quality management systems to a broader scope, based on multiple practices. An analysis was performed to identify how each of the identified roles influences business results. The results show that quality departments with a broad focus, combining both explorative and exploitative quality practices, contribute the most to business results.

    Yrkesutbildning – mellan skola och arbetsliv2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Gymnasial yrkesutbildning utgör en viktig del av det svenska utbildningssystemet och har ett komplext samhälls- och utbildningsuppdrag. Arbetslivet och skolan kan ha skilda förväntningar och målsättningar som ibland är svårförenliga. Yrkesutbildningarna ska å ena sidan svara mot arbetsmarknadens behov av yrkeskunskaper och leda till arbete. De ska å andra sidan även ge en bred allmänutbildning för att främja ett livslångt lärande. Boken belyser balansakten mellan skola och arbetsliv: hur yrkeslärare, elever och handledare på arbetsplatser anpassar och balanserar de politiska kraven och det mångsidiga samhällsuppdraget på lokal nivå. Boken ger ett helhetsperspektiv på gymnasial yrkesutbildning och beskriver bland annat

    • yrkeslärares och handledares pedagogiska och didaktiska utmaningar
    • elevers strategier för lärande på arbetsplatsen
    • behovet av samverkan mellan olika kategorier lärare för ämnesintegrerad och yrkesrelaterad undervisning
    • yrkeslärares behov av kompetensutveckling i sitt yrkesämne.

    Boken bidrar till praktiknära kunskap om gymnasial yrkesutbildning och hur balansakten mellan utbildning och arbetsliv kan förstås och utvecklas. Den är skriven för blivande och redan aktiva yrkeslärare, men vänder sig också till rektorer och skolledare som har ansvar för att samverkan mellan skola och arbetsliv fungerar i yrkesutbildningen.

    Students’ Vocational Learning: Enabling Conditions for Putting Knowledge to Work2018In: Handbook of Vocational Education and Training: Developments in the Changing World of Work, / [ed] Simon McGrath, Martin Mulder, Joy Papier and Rebecca Suart, Springer, 2018, p. 1-18Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this chapter is to contribute knowledge about school-related and workplace-related conditions that enable students’  vocational learning during workplace-based learning within vocational education. The research underpinning the chapter draws on evidence from a research project on students’  vocational learning in the industrial vocational education program at six different Swedish upper secondary schools. The theoretical concept of recontextualization contributes to uncovering the dynamic conditions that enable students’  vocational learning as they bring knowledge from the school context to the workplace context and back in vocational education programs. The argument is that both school- and workplace-related conditions must support putting knowledge to work in the workplace context. The ways in which different types of knowledge are put to use form the basis for examining how school-related and work-related conditions can support students in their vocational learning. The students’  ways of making sense of workplace-based learning as an extension of their educational program and of putting knowledge to work in the workplace are connected with their identity formation processes. Students use different learning strategies to bridge school-based and workplace-based knowledge that support changes in the workplace. The implications of this study are discussed in terms of potential changes in practices for vocational learning in the context of vocational education.

    Conditions for Employee Learning and Innovation: Interweaving Competence Development Activities Provided by a Workplace Development Programme with Everyday Work Activities in SMEs2018In: Vocations and Learning, ISSN 1874-785X, E-ISSN 1874-7868, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 45-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to investigate how the formal competence development activities provided by the Production Leap, a workplace development programme (WPDP), were interwoven with everyday work activities and to identify the conditions that enabled learning and employee-driven innovation that contributed to production improvement, in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Sweden. The study adopts a qualitative case approach and draws on evidence from research conducted in four manufacturing SMEs that participated in this Swedish WPDP. Funded by EU authorities, WPDPs provide competence development activities to SMEs in order to boost their production capabilities and/or promote innovation. The findings reveal that the competence development activities provided by the programme triggered learning in everyday work activities and fostered the development of different approaches to employee-driven innovation in the enterprises. The conclusion is that it is essential to consider that employee-driven innovations may take different forms and involve functions that can support innovative learning that goes beyond minor adjustments to the existing standards of production. Moreover, employee-driven innovation may impose new demands on management leadership skills. The findings provide important guidance for future WPDPs, for vocational education and training or university activities that are customised to SME contexts to promote production capabilities, and for SMEs that aim to strengthen employee-driven innovation.

    Learning conditions for continuous improvement in a public service organization2018In: Journal of Workplace Learning, ISSN 1366-5626, E-ISSN 1758-7859Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This study focuses on a transformation effort in a social welfare department of a Swedish municipality where continuous improvement, which is a Lean principle, was introduced in employees’everyday work via a workplace development programme (WPDP). The aim of this paper is to explore the conditions (internal and external) that enabled or constrained employee learning during the introduction of continuous improvement into employees’ everyday work in a WPDP-supported social welfare department.

    Design/methodology/approach – This case study is based mainly on 22 semi-structured interviews with individuals holding different positions in the department and overarching municipality.

    Findings – The findings show that multiple and emerging conditions, both internal and external, shaped a predominantly restrictive learning environment during the introduction of continuous improvement into the social welfare department. The major conditions identified were related to the initial implementation and top management’s steering and monitoring of the “Lean investment”, activities and support provided by the WPDP, activities and support provided by the internal Lean support team and first-line managers’ abilities to facilitate employee learning.

    Originality/value – Apart from unique empirical material depicting an effort towards change under conditions far from favourable for employee learning, the value of this study lies in the attention given to the external dynamics that drive change in line with the concept of new public management in public service organizations, including a WPDP that supported the social welfare department.

    The role of brokers in a workplace development programme targeting SMEs2018In: European Journal of Training and Development, ISSN 2046-9012, E-ISSN 2046-9020Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate the development of a workplace development programme (WPDP) targeting small and medium sized manufacturing enterprises (SMEs) by focussing on the people who acted as brokers providing cross-boundary connections between its collaborating partners.

    Design/methodology/approach

    The material, from interviews with 32 individuals and 11 meetings, was analysed in a boundary-crossing framework, which provided tools to reveal how the roles of brokers at different levels (operative, strategic and national) of the WPDP affected its development.

    Findings

    The findings indicate that cross-boundary connections were made by persons who acted as brokers within and between different levels of the WPDP. The brokers who provided cross-boundary connections between different levels of the WPDP were found to play the most important role for the prompt development of the WPDP.

    Originality/value

    Apart from unique empirical material depicting the development of a collaborative venture between national and regional stakeholders of the manufacturing industry, the value of this study is the attention given to the people behind the policymaking of publicly funded national WPDPs, revealing the complex business of developing policy-driven competence development activities to employees in SMEs.

    Contextualising the coevolution of (dis)trust and control – a longitudinal case study of a public market2018In: Journal of Trust Research, ISSN 2151-5581, E-ISSN 2151-559XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research into the dynamics of trust–control is still inconclusive. In this paper, we offer an in-depth understanding of (dis)trust and control coevolve as embedded in multiple dimensions of context. The paper focuses on public markets, a context which is underrepresented in extant studies on trust and control. Our analysis is based on a longitudinal case study of interorganisational relationships (IOR) between boundary spanners representing purchaser and providers on a customer choice market for home care in a midsized municipality in Sweden. We identify, narrate and analyse critical incidents during seven years of the process. A conceptual framework contextualising the trust–control nexus of a public–private IOR is developed and utilised. We find that while the public–private IOR context requires control, control only enables deterrence trust from the municipal officers and only in individual providers. Interferential rather than symbiotic coevolution of trust and control is the dominating pattern. In addition, we find what we denote as mixed coevolution, where control simultaneously has positive and negative impact on trust. In our case in point, control enables trust in specific providers but this trust is not reciprocated due to experienced distrust on the category level.

    Social validitet för försäkringsmedicinska utredningar och påföljande myndighetsbeslut inom sjukförsäkringen2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: I det svenska sjukförsäkringssystemet utförs försäkringsmedicinska utredningar av särskilda enheter inom hälso- och sjukvården på uppdrag av Försäkringskassan. Dessa utredningar ligger sedan till grund för handläggares beslut om sjukskrivnas rätt till sjukpenning. Studier av social validitet är ännu ovanliga inom försäkringsmedicin och folkhälsa men kan bidra med kunskap om vad som främjar eller hindrar att metoder uppfattas som godtagbara, begripliga och betydelsefulla.

    Syfte: Att utforska sjukskrivna personers upplevelse av social validitet för försäkringsmedicinska utredningar och påföljande myndighetsbeslut avseende sjukpenning inom sjukförsäkringen.

    Metod: Detta var en kvalitativ longitudinell studie baserad på telefonintervjuer med 30 sjukskrivna som varit på en försäkringsmedicinsk utredning, samt delvis deras akter från Försäkringskassan. En deduktiv innehållsanalys användes.

    Resultat: Sjukskrivnas förståelse för utredningen var beroende av huruvida de specifika testerna var tydligt relaterade till personernas svårigheter eller ej och vilken information de hade fått. De anser att den standardiserade strukturen inte är relevant för alla och att bristen på individanpassning förvårar möjligheten att få en rättvis bild av deras arbetsförmåga. 

    Diskussion: Social validitet utforskades för försäkringsmedicinska utredningar och myndighetsbeslut i termer av godtagbarhet, begriplighet och betydelse. Utredningarna indikerar en låg social validitet i termer av godtagbarhet på grund av bristen på individanpassning, även om vissa delar är mer socialt valida än andra. Vidare varierade utredningarnas begriplighet beroende på deras applicerbarhet och den erhållna informationen, medan dimensionen betydelse indikerar en högre grad av social validitet. Handläggarens påföljande myndighetsbeslut ansågs däremot orelaterat till utredningens resultat, sakna konkreta argument och ibland motsägande andra aktörers rekommendationer, vilket indikerar en låg social validitet i termer av både godtagbarhet, begriplighet och betydelse. 

    Slutsats: Social validitet finns för delar av utredningarna men är låg för det påföljande myndighetsbeslutet.

    The entrepreneurial university as driver for economic growth and social change - Key strategic challenges2019In: Technological forecasting & social change, ISSN 0040-1625, E-ISSN 1873-5509, Vol. 141, p. 149-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Limitations of the research on the various leadership and strategic issues facing universities seeking to become more entrepreneurial has led this special issue to focus on the management, development, and implementation of this vision. We have solicited original research on the strategic challenges that these universities currently encounter. Researchers in management and related disciplines have contributed to this field of inquiry, which is having growing implications for our universities and stakeholders in the social and economic spheres. We begin by tracing an overarching framework, to which we add brief descriptions of the contributing papers in this special issue. To conclude, we outline future research goals and discuss how, around the world, academic actors involved in university development - such as university managers and policy makers - could view the ideas presented here.

    Stöd och utveckling av små och nya företag i landsbygdsregioner2019In: Entreprenörskap för en levande landsbygd: 15 texter om landsbygdsutveckling och entreprenörskap i Norrland / [ed] Karl Wennberg, Växjö: Familjen Kamprads stiftelse , 2019, p. 261-277Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    När man ska stödja företagande på landsbygden är det viktigt att skapa en kritisk massa av entreprenörer, företag och stödaktörer i den aktuella regionen. Mångfalden är viktig och samordning mellan aktörerna är A och O för att önskade åtgärder ska kunna genomföras effektivt. Det är viktigt att ha realistiska förväntningar avseende företagens tillväxtmöjligheter och inriktning. Att stödja brett är många gånger viktigare än att satsa på spets. Ett prestigelöst och gränsöverskridande arbetssätt är att föredra i alla företagsstödjande sammanhang och man bör undvika både tanke- och verksamhetsmässiga silos.

    Support and development of small and new firms in rural areas2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on small business entrepreneurialism in rural areas and its special conditions and needs. Our aim is to present examples of and suggestions for how to encourage firm start-ups and the continuation possibly also the development and growth of existing firms. The paper is based on three cases that illustrate (1) challenges in the support system in rural areas, (2) various forms of support that could be used in rural areas, and (3) expectations that are eligible to put upon support activities designed for rural areas. The following main conclusions were drawn: Firstly, we found that successful support of rural businesses requires a critical mass of regional entrepreneurs, firms, and support actors. Diversity is critical, and the various actors must be coordinated to carry out the desired measures effectively. We also found that expectations for growth and orientation of the firms must be realistic. Many times, broad support is more important than targeted support. Finally, we were able to show that a cross-boundary collaborative work culture that avoids both thought silos and business silos and places no value on prestige should pervade all areas of business support.

    Abstract [sv]

    I inledningskapitlet skisserades en modell som använts i denna bok, för att rama in ett helhetsperspektiv på yrkesutbildning som befinner sig mellan skola och arbetsliv. Bokens kapitel ger exempel på hur målsättningar formulerade på politisk nivå kommer till uttryck i yrkesutbildningens vardagspraktik, det vill säga hur yrkeslärare, yrkeselever och handledare dagligen hanterar yrkesutbildningens mångsidiga utbildningsuppdrag. Detta avslutande kapitel sammanfattar några av bokens huvudpoänger utifrån resonemang och slutsatser som presenterats i de olika kapitlen.

    Managers social support: Facilitators and hindrances for seeking support at work2018In: Work: A journal of Prevention, Assesment and rehabilitation, ISSN 1051-9815, E-ISSN 1875-9270, Vol. 59, no 3, p. 351-365Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Previous research has shown that social support is important for health and performance at work, but there is a lack of research regarding managers social support at work, and if it needs to be improved. OBJECTIVE: To investigate managers perception of work-related social support, and facilitators and hindrances that influence their seeking of social support at work. METHODS: Semi-structured interviews with sixty-two managers in two Swedish organizations. RESULTS: Work-related support, which strengthened their managerial image of being competent, was sought from sources within the workplace. Sensitive and personal support, where there was a risk of jeopardizing their image of being competent, was sought from sources outside the workplace. Access to arenas for support (location of the workplace, meetings, and vocational courses) and the managerial role could facilitate their support-seeking, but could also act as hindrances. Because attending different arenas for support were demanding, they refrained from seeking support if the demands were perceived as too high. CONCLUSIONS: Different supportive sources are distinguished based on what supportive function they have and in which arenas they are found, in order to preserve the confidence of the closest organization and to maintain the image of being a competent and performing manager.

    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.

    The MIO Model: A Guide for Innovation Support in Public Sector Organisations2017In: Scandinavian Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 2001-7405, E-ISSN 2001-7413, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 23-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The innovation imperative in the public sector is not yet matched by fully developed knowledge on how to support innovation. As a response to the theoretical as well as practical knowledge gaps on how to support innovation in the public sector the paper suggests a tentative model for designing innovation support in public sector organizations, the MIO-model. The model is developed as a practical theory, based on extensive empirical research on innovation and innovation support in Swedish local government, and it is theoretically informed by integrations of innovation studies and theories on organization and workplace learning. Rather than prescribing exactly what to do and how to form innovation support, the MIO-model focuses on core conditions for informed and locally embedded innovation support.

    Learning together as professionals or just playing different games?2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores an initiative by a Swedish governmental agency to create a temporary arena for collaboration between management consultancies, researchers and representatives from the public sector. This temporary arena, a pilot effort hereafter called the Lab, was intended to support consultancies to develop and offer services to strengthen public organizations' capacity for innovation and change, by utilizing research-based knowledge about the conditions for innovation, development and change in the public sector. In other words, the governmental agency hoped that scientific research and knowledge could be transferred to consultancies so that they in turn could package their learnings into high quality services to be sold to the public sector, in particular local and regional authorities. The Lab was in this sense a pilot in trying to find ways to increase the practical application of available research and experience-based knowledge in the field amongst consultancies. A multilateral and interprofessional – and complex - constellation was set up in the Lab around the consultancies: process leaders; consultancies; researchers of innovation in public sector; local government representatives; and observers from the governmental agency. Over a period of approximately one year the participants of the Lab met in different constellations, particularly in common workshops. During the Lab period, the researchers (the three authors of the paper) applied a ’split vision approach’ by both acting as knowledge support and also collecting data by documenting the process through meeting notes and personal diaries. The purpose of the paper is to contribute to increased knowledge on the conditions for interprofessional collaboration and learning in arenas where different forms of knowledge meet. The following questions are investigated: What characterized the conditions for learning in the Lab in terms of enabling and constraining conditions? What intersections of professional knowledge were key to the outcome of the Lab? These questions are discussed and problematized through analytical entries based on theories on workplace learning and forms of knowledge. The conclusion is that is was hard to create a common ground for the different forms of knowledge and professional practices that met in the Lab. Despite the lab-metaphor, the Lab did not turn out as an expansive learning environment as was intended from the beginning – at least not in relation to the goals of the program. Some aspects that will need more attention in future intitiatives mixing these types of actors was the shortage of time in general, the limited time for reflection; unclear roles (not sufficient trust); and a low degree of teamwork.

    Kvinnors företagande i landsbygdskommuner med fokus på Småland och Öland: En kvantitativ kartläggning inom ramen för forskningsprojektet ”Kvinnors företagande för en levande landsbygd”2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En livskraftig landsbygd med tillgång till arbetskraft, arbetstillfällen och välfärdsservice är en aktuell samhällsfråga. Företagandets omfattning på landsbygden är en aspekt som kan ha betydelse för landsbygdskommunernas sårbarhet. Syftet med rapporten är att utveckla kunskap om kvinnors entreprenörskap på landsbygden, som kan ligga till grund för att stimulera landsbygdsutveckling, jämställdhet och vidare forskning, exempelvis genom kvalitativa forskningsmetoder.

    Med hjälp av en databasstudie beskrivs och analyseras omfattningen och karaktären av kvinnors företagande på landsbygden. Till viss del studeras också likheter och skillnader i företagandet mellan kvinnor födda i Sverige och kvinnor födda utomlands, samt mellan kvinnor och män.

    Företagandet är mer omfattande bland de sysselsatta kvinnorna på landsbygden än bland de sysselsatta kvinnorna i tätorterna. Skillnaderna i omfattningen av kvinnors företagande är små mellan olika typer av landsbygdskommuner – de som är avlägset belägna, mycket avlägset belägna eller belägna nära en större stad. Resultaten indikerar snarare att det är kommunernas företagskaraktär eller tradition av företagande som avgör andelen företagare per sysselsatta. Kartläggningen pekar mot att arbetslöshet kan vara ett incitament för företagande – något starkare för de utlandsfödda kvinnorna än för kvinnorna födda i Sverige. Skogsförvaltning och blandat jordbruk är bland de vanligaste näringsgrenarna för både kvinnor och män på landsbygden. I övrigt är dock företagandet mycket könssegregerat med avseende på bransch. De tio vanligaste näringsgrenarna för kvinnor och män skiljer sig markant åt. Kvinnors företag är mest representerade i Hår- och kroppsvård, Restaurangverksamhet, Redovisning och bokföring, Konsultverksamhet avseende företags organisation, Fysioterapeutisk verksamhet samt Litterärt och konstnärligt skapande. Mäns vanligaste näringsgrenar är mer relaterade till landsbygdens kontext av mark- och naturresurser. Kvinnors företag är små, 76 procent är soloföretag och lönsamheten varierar stort. De näringsgrenar där kvinnors företag redovisar högst lönsamhet är i de numerärt mansdominerade näringsgrenarna inom tillverkningsindustrin. Resultaten indikerar därmed könssegregering och hierarki med avseende på arbets- och resursfördelning.

    Kvinnor på landsbygden är mer benägna att vara företagare än anställda om de är gifta, har hemmavarande barn eller en utbildningsnivå lägre än den eftergymnasiala. Det kan tolkas som att företagandet är en lösning för att kombinera arbetsliv med ansvar för hem och barn. De företagande kvinnornas disponibla inkomster är i genomsnitt lägre än för kvinnor med anställning, för män som är företagare och för män med anställning. Att vara gift innebär för kvinnor en lägre disponibel inkomst, men för män en högre disponibel inkomst jämfört med att att inte vara gift. Resultaten visar dock att det inte är de individrelaterade faktorerna som mest bidrar till skillnader i disponibel inkomst, utan, näringsgren och antalet sysselsatta. Manligt könskodade näringsgrenar och stora företag ger högre inkomst. Den övergripande slutsatsen är att företagandet på landsbygden är traditionellt könssegregerat och hierarkiserat, i fråga om resursfördelning.

    The influence of place on health-care customer creativity2019In: European Journal of Marketing, ISSN 0309-0566, E-ISSN 1758-7123, Vol. 53, no 7, p. 1400-1422Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose When using a service, customers often develop their own solutions by integrating resources to solve problems and co-create value. Drawing on innovation and creativity literature, this paper aims to investigate the influence of place (the service setting and the customer setting) on customer creativity in a health-care context. Design/methodology/approach In a field study using customer diaries, 200 ideas from orthopedic surgery patients were collected and evaluated by an expert panel using the consensual assessment technique (CAT). Findings Results suggest that place influences customer creativity. In the customer setting, customers generate novel ideas that may improve their clinical health. In the service setting, customers generate ideas that may improve the user value of the service and enhance the customer experience. Customer creativity is influenced by the role the customer adopts in a specific place. In the customer setting customers were more likely to develop ideas involving active customer roles. Interestingly, while health-care customers provided ideas in both settings, contrary to expectation, ideas scored higher on user value in the service setting than in the customer setting. Research limitations/implications - This study shows that customer creativity differs in terms of originality, user value and clinical value depending on the place (service setting or customer setting), albeit in one country in a standardized care process. Practical implications - The present research puts customer creativity in relation to health-care practices building on an active patient role, suggesting that patients can contribute to the further development of health-care services. Originality/value As the first field study to test the influence of place on customer creativity, this research makes a novel contribution to the growing body of work in customer creativity, showing that different places are more/less favorable for different dimensions of creativity. It also relates customer creativity to health-care practices and highlights that patients are an untapped source of creativity with first-hand knowledge and insights, importantly demonstrating how customers can contribute to the further development of health-care services.

    Applying theories to better understand socio-political challenges in implementing evidence-based work disability prevention strategies2018In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 40, no 8, p. 952-959Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This article explores and applies theories for analyzing socio-political aspects of implementation of work disability prevention (WDP) strategies.

    Method: For the analysis, theories from political science are explained and discussed in relation to case examples from three jurisdictions (Sweden, Brazil and Québec).

    Results: Implementation of WDP strategies may be studied through a conceptual framework that targets: (1) the institutional system in which policy-makers and other stakeholders reside; (2) the ambiguity and conflicts regarding what to do and how to do it; (3) the bounded rationality, path dependency and social systems of different stakeholders; and (4) coalitions formed by different stakeholders and power relations between them. In the case examples, the design of social insurance systems, the access to and infrastructure of healthcare systems, labor market policies, employers’ level of responsibility, the regulatory environment, and the general knowledge of WDP issues among stakeholders played different roles in the implementation of policies based on scientific evidence.

    Conclusions: Future research may involve participatory approaches focusing on building coalitions and communities of practice with policy-makers and stakeholders, in order to build trust, facilitate cooperation, and to better promote evidence utilization.

    • Implications for Rehabilitation
    • Implementation of work disability prevention policies are subject to contextual influences from the socio-political setting and from relationships between stakeholders

    • Stakeholders involved in implementing strategies are bound to act based on their interests and previous courses of action

    • To promote research uptake on the policy level, stakeholders and researchers need to engage in collaboration and translational activities

    • Political stakeholders at the government and community levels need to be more directly involved as partners in the production and utilization of evidence
