    The interplay of dominant logic and dynamic capabilities in innovation activities2015Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1363-9196, E-ISSN 1757-5877, Vol. 19, nr 5, s. 1-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Within the strategic management literature, both managerial cognition and dynamic capabilities have been identified as drivers of change and transition in changing business environments. The purpose of this study is to explore the interplay of dominant logic and dynamic capabilities in the magazine publishing industry. We investigated four magazine publishing business units of a large media corporation situated in four different countries, namely Finland, the Netherlands, Hungary and Russia. A total of 40 magazine managers were interviewed. The results imply that dominant logic and dynamic capabilities coevolve in a reciprocal relationship, and the interplay of cognition and capabilities seems to be most visible in the seizing and reconfiguring capabilities. The results of the present study also illustrate that there may be several contradictory dominant logics within a single company. Dynamic capabilities useful to innovation processes are developed in the areas that are pinpointed by the managers as the locus of attention. Industry transition does not automatically change what companies think and do. That requires managerial attention and an active reconceptualization of the business and active development of not only day-to-day operations, but capabilities needed to change the way we work.

    Magazine management: Publishing as a business2015Ingår i: The Routledge Handbook of Magazine Research: The Future of the Magazine Form / [ed] David Abrahamson and Marcia R. Prior-Miller, New York: Routledge, 2015Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Magazine management as a field of study lies within the area of Media Management and Economics (MME). MME research is producing a growing body of literature focusing on economic, management and business issues in the media industries, based largely on traditional concepts and theories in the two related disciplines of management and economics. Study of media management and economics has grown in stature since the 1990s pioneering works of Robert Picard and Alan Albarran. Several seminal books have been published in the 2000s, including the Handbook of Media Management and Economics and Annet Aris and Jacques Bughin’s Managing Media Companies. The founding of three academic journals, namely the Journal of Media Economics (in 1988), the International Journal of Media Management (in 1999), and the Journal of Media Business Studies (in 2007), has established the field by providing industry-specific publication outlets for research on journalism and media-based business and economics.

    This chapter comprises a review of the current research on the magazine industry, segmented in the following five categories: media economics, management research, business modeling, innovation and brand management. These categories reflect the main body of research related to magazines and magazine publishing from a business perspective. Research specific to magazine publishing is scarce in comparison with that in other media sectors, such as the newspaper industry. However, a strength is that the body of magazine-related research includes both global and digital studies, with theory and applications continuing to mature. Included in this review is management research that focuses on magazine publishers, as well as research in which magazine publishing is the empirical context for a larger theoretical approach.

    The role of the website in a magazine business – revisiting old truths2015Ingår i: Journal of Media Business Studies, ISSN 1652-2354, Vol. 12, nr 4, s. 238-249Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores consumer behavioural patterns on a magazine website. By using a unique dataset of real-life click stream data from 295 magazine website visitors, interesting behavioural patterns are noted: most importantly, 86% of all sessions only visit the blogs hosted by the magazine. This means that the visitors short-circuit the start page and are not exposed to any editorial content at all, and consequently not to any commercial content on those pages. Sessions visiting editorial content, commercial content or social media links actually represent only 1% or less of all sessions recorded. Consequently, the online platform gives very limited support for the business model. Our data questions the general assumption that online platforms are key components of a contemporary magazine’s business model.

    Embracing the unplanned: Organizational ambidexterity within manufacturing SMEs2019Ingår i: Academy of Management Proceedings, Academy of Management , 2019, artikel-id 14906Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizational Ambidexterity (OA)–the ability to simultaneously pursue exploration and exploitation–is increasingly being advocated as a way to gain competitive advantage. Most of the work on OA has focused on large, multi-divisional organizations, resulting in frameworks and prescriptions that have little utility for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). With this in mind, we report on the first year of an exploratory, quasi-experimental study of ambidexterity within six small-to-medium manufacturing enterprises in Sweden. The research is characterized by an emic, ‘invented here’ approach, where companies closely examine their current exploration and exploitation practices, use their findings to formulate more advanced OA approaches uniquely suited to their values and circumstances, and iteratively apply and refine these over a four year period. It appears that the construct of ‘unplanned’ and associated sub-constructs such as ‘disturbance, crashes, and interruption’ could be an important key to framing and improving OA within these SMEs and perhaps more generally.

    Beyond appearances - Do dynamic capabilities of innovative firms actually differ?2012Ingår i: European Management Journal, ISSN 0263-2373, E-ISSN 1873-5681, Vol. 30, nr 2, s. 141-155Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Dynamic capabilities are the higher-order capabilities needed for changing operational-level capabilities and learning in new domains, and thus they are critical for innovation activities. The aim of this study is to explore heterogeneity of dynamic capabilities in a comparative setting. We chose four innovative case firms representing a single industry, namely magazine publishing. The similarity of the cases provided a solid foundation for comparing their dynamic capabilities. Based on the results it seems that the practices comprising sensing capabilities are likely to be similar across firms within a single industry, while practices comprising seizing and reconfiguring types of capabilities may differ more between companies. Thus dynamic capabilities have both idiosyncratic and common features across an industry. These findings are relevant to practicing managers in that they illustrate that competing companies within the same industry tend to develop similar types of practices to match the changing requirement of the operating environment. Hence, managers should not be falsely comforted by the current situation within their firms, but proactively develop their unique capabilities to gain advantage over their competitors.

    Entrepreneurialism - an asset in financial crises: A study of Swedish magazine publishers’ approach to new business development2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The media industry is working in a constant turbulence due to technological advancements in the way media content is produced, spread and consumed. The financial crisis came in the midst of this challenging business environment and was a hard blow for the whole industry. Developing creative and profitable products under such uncertain and difficult circumstances puts the usefulness of traditional strategic principles such as planning and forecasts in question. This paper discuss how Swedish magazine publishers approach new business development and presents preliminary results from a  study of 246 decision makers in 130 Swedish magazine publishing firms. These findings show that they use a logic similar to that of entrepreneurs, a logic which is different from generally applied management theory. It is suggested that having this entrepreneurial approach helps decision makers in the magazine industry to handle uncertainty, induced by financial crises but also induced by the general technological development.

    The role of Entrepreneurial Behavior for Business model development: A study of magazine organizations2009Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The term business model is widely used in research and in practice, mostly referring to a representation of the logic behind a certain firm’s value creation. Researchers have so far concentrated on clarifying what the business model concept actually means and what it can be useful for. This paper will instead focus on the role of entrepreneurial behavior for the development of business models, by looking into the practices connected to the marketing related components of business models. Results from an explorative study of three Swedish magazine publishers show that entrepreneurial behavior is a driving force for business model development.

    Ways forward: Effectual and causal approaches to innovation in the Swedish magazine industry2014Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation builds on a study of key decision makers in the Swedish magazine publishing industry with a particular focus on how they think and act in their work to innovate their industry. This industry, much like the rest of the media industry, is facing increased unpredictability regarding for example the impact of new technology on the business and future demand. Traditional planning (causal) approaches can be greatly questioned in times of uncertainty, when the task at hand include creating products and services that do not yet exist.

    In this study I examine an alternative logic forward which takes its starting point in the interests, experiences, knowledge and networks of decision makers – instead of given goals. This logic is known as an effectual logic, and offers an alternative approach to move forward with innovation work. I argue, that the effectual logic can enable organizations to capitalize better from people’s experiences, networks and “gut-feeling” and create the innovations we now know nothing about. The effectual process involves developing ideas that coevolve together with others who want to commit, in a spirit that welcomes surprise, flexibility and experimentation. In this process products and services are created which could not have been predicted and planned – innovations. This logic of entrepreneurial action stems from research on expert entrepreneurs, however limited research has been done on its use and relevance in an established firm context. In this dissertation I examine this in the setting of magazine publishing firms to better understand the underlying mechanisms of effectuation in the firm setting, and its consequences for learning, innovation and performance. Alongside the effectual logic, I examine the traditional, causal logic dominating management education and practice.

    Effectuation is generally used among the decision makers in the study, inparticular among the most senior managers. Effectuation is positively linked to innovation, in particular radical innovation, and a combination of both logics is positively linked to innovation in general. Combining causal and effectual logics also gives rise to more knowledge useful for future innovation projects. One challenge for organizations is how to transfer this logic from the most senior managers to the whole organization, and thus make the most of the experiences and networks of their members.

    Magazine publishers approaching new media: Is it about what we do or how we think?2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    New technology, such as Internet, mobile phones and more recently the new reading devices, have posed many new challenges for the magazine publishing industry for over a decade and will continue to do so. In this paper we explore commonalities among magazine publishers being in the forefront of integrating new media in their businesses. We approach this by combining two streams of management literature, namely capabilities and management cognition. Within the capabilities stream we focus on dynamic capabilities, ie. the routines and practices needed for learning about new domains, creating new asset combinations and building new capabilities in order to match market needs. Within the management cognition stream, we focus on the decision-making logic used; whether it is dominantly based on causal logic (predictive control) or effectual logic (non-predictive control). Hence, we explore both what the magazine publishers do and how they think about new media. A case study of four innovative magazine publishers in Sweden and Finland has been conducted including 33 in-depth interviews. Practices related to business development and the decision making logic behind them has been carefully analyzed to find differences and similarities between the studied firms. The findings increase our understanding of the relationship of capabilities and cognition in approaching new media, and provide important implications for media managers.

    Effectual learning in SME’s – activities promoting transformation in place of frustration2016Ingår i: Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange Conference 2016: Conference proceedings / [ed] Per Davidsson, Queensland University of Technology, Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research , 2016Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper takes its starting point in an empirical problem, to which we believe current research have difficulties offering operational solutions. The root of the problem lies in the tensions between the common held expectations of small firms (SMEs) to contribute to society’s growth and innovation – and the different factors which makes such accomplishment challenging, including lack of time and the need to master different skills. Upon adding uncertainty with regards to goal definition; information scarcity or overflow and the pressure to manage an ever-changing market, this triggers frustration at instances where innovative action is needed the most.

    The paper builds upon the idea that human interaction result in learning that either transforms or reproduces the processes involved. This relates back to the ideas of an organization’s need to explore new as well as exploit existing products and processes. The challenge for SMEs to deal with these both types of learning – and ultimately release innovative capacity – is at the core of this paper. We find that nature of the problem; degree of complexity and level of competence in the problem area are all important determinants for the chosen activities which also relates to the fit with the effectual learning processes.

    An In-depth Investigation of Employee-driven Innovation2016Ingår i: 36th Babson College Entrepreneurship Conference, Bodø, June 8-11, 2016., 2016Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Principal topic

     This paper is direct the focus on the potential of employees to contribute to innovation, regardless their position in the company – a practice and research stream we know as employee driven innovation (EDI) (Kristiansen & Bloch‐Poulsen, 2010). More specifically, we study the effects of using an online platform to motivate and track employee driven activities. We use a unique dataset of close to 500 employee driven activities responding to the overall strategic goals of a large pharmaceutical retail chain in Sweden.

    It goes without saying that expertise, experience, ideas, creativity and skills among employees are valuable resources in the company’s innovation work (Høyrup, 2010) and support achievement of competitive advantages (Kesting & Parm Ulhøi, 2010). EDI include acting on your own ideas and not only respond to needs of the organization (Lovén, 2013), furthermore EDI includes both bottom‐up and top‐down perspectives on innovation (Høyrup, Bonnafous‐Boucher, Hasse, Lotz, & Møller, 2012). The presence of EDI is dependent on mechanisms that influence the organisation’s innovation capabilities (Kesting & Parm Ulhøi, 2010). Dominant mechanisms include fundamental determinants of work engagement known from motivational research, such as the need for autonomy, competence and relatedness (Hakanen & Roodt, 2010; Mauno, Kinnunen, & Ruokolainen, 2007) but also feedback and the possibility of seeing one’s own part in the bigger picture (Hackman & Oldham, 1980).

    Amundsen et al. (2014) who suggest that important factors for stimulating EDI include leader support through the generation, registration, evaluation and realisation of ideas; a collaborative climate including interactions between colleagues and between employees and external contacts; rendering autonomy and delegation of decision‐making authority to employees. Research has also highlighted several restraining forces for EDI, such as the gap between management and employees and the fact that managers are not capable of seeing the things that employees meet in their daily work (Kesting & Parm Ulhøi, 2010).

    Despite the vast knowledge relating to motivational theory, social comparison and social facilitation surprisingly few studies examine how this knowledge could be combined and successfully be put to practice to promote EDI. The focus on the majority of work has been on investigating restraining and enabling factors of EDI (Aaltonen & Hytti, 2014; Kesting & Parm Ulhøi, 2010), exploring how EDI occurs in teams (Kristiansen & Bloch‐Poulsen, 2010) and small organizations (Aaltonen & Hytti, 2014). As a result of this, we know a lot about what need to be accomplished to promote EDI, but we do not know what tools work or not to reach those accomplishments. In particular, we know little about how this could take place in large organizations where people are spread geographically.

    By drawing upon knowledge from social cognitive theory (Bandura, 2001) showing that strong perceived collective efficacy increase people’s aspirations and motivations, we analyze the outcomes from a year-long strategic work at a large pharmaceutical retail chain in Sweden. This takes shape in a database consisting of detailed information on close to 500 employee-driven activities in a large pharmaceutical retail chain in Sweden. Social cognitive theory extends the conception of human agency to collective agency (Bandura 1997) where people’s shared belief in their collective power is a key ingredient

    Method

    We use a unique data set of close to 500 employee-driven activities entered in a cloud-based, online database. The database was used as a means to active the employees at the 370 retail units in an organizational change project launched earlier the same year. The project started off with 32 physical dialogue meetings between the CEO and the retail unit staff where the overall strategic goals were presented and discussed. Ambassadors in management positions were appointed at each retail unit, responsible to encourage, initiate and document the activities rendered by the employees. The online database allowed for constant transparency between the retail units – giving the possibility to share ones ideas and experiences, mistakes and successes throughout the whole year while the project was running. The database consist of secondary data, as we did not intervene in the creation or execution of the project. Same thing goes for the written evaluation made after the project was completed – where employees were asked about their impressions and experiences from using the database. 

    The retailing business is highly competitive and the geographical spread of employees makes it a suitable context to explore the use of online tools of this kind for promoting EDI in other large businesses or smaller businesses geographically spread.  

    We used mainly qualitative analysis methods to explore the database as well as simple quantitative analysis to produce frequencies and descriptive data. By coding each activity according to the degree of innovativeness and type of activity (e.g. internal process, customer service) we could form a good understanding of the outcomes from using the database.

    Results and implications

    Our study of the database and the subsequent employee evaluation form reveals interesting and uplifting results. For example, 64 % said the online tool helped them better understand the overall strategy and 85 % were happy with the user interface and continuous work with the tool. Also, half of the retail outlets claimed the tool helped them run projects which increased sales considerably. Among the more successful activities were one initiating earlier opening hours (which previously was attempted to be pushed up-down without success) – this activity alone corresponded to the average turnover of 22 outlets. 

    The result are in line with social comparison and social facilitation theory, showing how public praise and social comparison seem to improve employee driven innovation motivation (Mumm and Mutlu (2001). Although comparative studies are hard to find (we did not) similar findings were made in the use of mobile exercise applications. A recent study by Hamari and Koivisto, 2015) shows that social influence, positive recognition and reciprocity have a positive impact on how much people are willing to exercise.  In fact, the more “friends” a user the larger the effects were, which could explain the success of the online tool in this study – which involved the exposure among more than 300 outlets.  Our findings, similar to Hamari and Koivisto (2015), further our understanding on the phenomenon of social influence showing, how public recognition and network effects contribute to the collective employee-driven innovation.

    Unpacking the Antecedents of Effectuation and Causation in a Corporate Context2012Ingår i: Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research: Vol. 32, Wellesley, Mass.: Babson College , 2012, 32Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Effectuation and causation are important modes of entrepreneurial decision-making. In this paper, we extend the literature on effectuation into the corporate context. Based on extant theory concerning both individual decision-makers’ human capital and organizational-level characteristics, we develop and test hypotheses concerning the use of effectuation and causation in pursuing new opportunities in the magazine industry. Our results, based on the actions of 246 key decision-makers, show an inconsistent set of antecedents for causation and the four effectual logic principles. As such, our multi-level study helps to unravel some of the complexities of the choice of decision-making logics.

    The measurement of effectuation: highlighting research tensions and opportunities for the future2019Ingår i: Small Business Economics, ISSN 0921-898X, E-ISSN 1573-0913Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we address issues related to the measurement of effectuation. We identify and examine 81 empirical studies focusing on research tensions (fundamental assumptions, theoretical underpinnings, boundary conditions, units of analyses, measures, and temporal issues) within the effectuation literature. Our findings suggest these tensions inhibit the accumulation of empirical knowledge. We highlight the challenges involved in effectively measuring effectuation and offer solutions and recommendations for systematic knowledge accumulation.
