Abstract [en]

Personal branding is a rapidly growing phenomenon taking place in multistakeholder ecosystems. This article builds on ethnographic fieldwork from the rock-climbing industry in the US and Europe to show how stakeholders enable and shape the personal branding practices of professional climbers. Findings demonstrate that personal branding is a highly social practice wherein stakeholders provide three types of resources to elaborate personal brands: material resources, informational resources, and symbolic resources. In addition, six main conventions guiding stakeholders' relationships and enabling resource transfer are then identified and theorized. Finally, these findings are built upon to suggest a framework to analyze stakeholder cooperation in personal branding.

Abstract [en]

For over two centuries, technology has reshaped professional work. In most cases, these changes were positive as they have created new areas of work for professions and destroyed relatively few. Recently, however, technological change i.e. digitalization has also negatively impacted professionals with numerous professions, such as journalist, doctors, accountants. While research has extensively focused on digital technologies, per se, research has ignored its effect on the agents implementing technologies i.e. professionals. We suggest that organizing digitalization involves not only recombining physical and digital technologies but also reconstructing institutional professions. We use a comparative case study of two of the oldest Swedish newspaper companies to present: 1) two paths to build digital capabilities i.e. building digital capabilities or acquiring digital capabilities and 2) detail a change in the professional practices. Our results portray how digitalization changed professionals from doing occupational tasks to build collaborative relations with other professions.

Abstract [en]

Media and advertising markets have a number of characteristics that affect how firms are competing and collaborating, how new firms enter the markets, and how new products are created. Throughout a research career in media management and media economics that started in the 1960s and stretched over more than five decades, Karl Erik Gustafsson kept exploring these topics, and their implications for both business strategy, regulation, and policy. His work formed early building blocks, both for media management as an academic field, and for the design, operationalisation, and governance of media policy, especially concerning newspaper development, in the Nordic countries. This article provides an introduction to his work.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we explore the role of media industries in the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development. Based on prior research on media industries, the paper starts by outlining the established view of this complex business context and its contradictory objectives. We then systematize this in a tentative framework of media business objectives in relation to the Agenda 2030 goals, and finally propose a research agenda. In future versions of this paper we will complement this framework with case study data on Sustainable Management Practices at the largest Nordic media houses. This entails how managers understand and interpret the meaning of sustainability in the media context and media’s role for agenda 2030, but also how they operationalize and organize this in business practices.

Abstract [en]

Due to its function as a watchdog or fourth estate in democratic societies and a variety of commercial challenges, policy-makers have undertaken initiatives to support the production and distribution of news. Press subsidies are one such policy initiative that particularly aims to provide support to private news producers. Paid as direct cash handouts or indirect reduced taxes and fees, they exist in some form in almost every country in the world. Subsidies are not uncontroversial, their effectiveness is unclear, and their magnitude, designs, and areas of application, differ across nations and their unique economic, cultural, and political contexts.

After periods of declining political and public interest in media subsidies, the recent economic crisis of journalism, and the rising influence of various forms of click-bait, fake, native, or biased news on social media platforms, has brought state support of original journalism back on the agenda.

Abstract [en]

Whereas the production-side of advertising has interested scholars for decades, research has focused primarily on isolated agency practices and interactions with clients. There has been limited discussion of how an ad agency coordinates and connects multiple activities and relationships, and how the agency setup has evolved over time. This question has become particularly interesting in the age of digitization, in which new forms of advertising require new ways of organizing production. In a case study of Forbes’s BrandVoice unit, this paper specifically examines native advertising production via the business model lens, illustrating how BrandVoice consciously borrows production logics from journalism and distribution practices of platform economies. This study contributes to the understanding of the morphing of advertising production and agency work in the digital economy.

Abstract [en]

Whereas media ownership issues have interested scholars for decades, research has largely ignored the implications of specific ownership forms on the corporate governance of media companies, that is, how these companies are directed and controlled. This article attempts to address this gap by exploring the corporate governance of the ownership form of business foundations—a type of ownership that is increasing in different countries around the world. We analyze the corporate governance of three business foundations in the Swedish newspaper sector that together hold 26% of the market and outperform their industry peers. The control function, which is at the heart of corporate governance, is typically performed by companies’ owners. However, foundations do not have a physical person as owner; thus, this control function is replaced by the foundation’s charter, which stipulates the aim of the foundation’s business activities. When steered by professional top management, the charter’s long-term orientation facilitates the careful implementation of strategic directions without short-term performance pressures. We conclude the article by outlining several advantages and disadvantages of this ownership form for the media industry.
