    Isaberg on the edge to future by controlling the lack of snow2009In: Presented at The international Symposium on Entrepreneurship in Tourism, Rovaniemi, Finland, March 17-21, 2009., 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a descriptive examination and assessment of a ski resort in southern Sweden – Isaberg. The paper describes an emerging threat most ski resorts are faced with today and in the future – the lack of snow. In many countries financial institutions are much less willing to offer funding for investments in ski resorts under certain heights. This is the result of two trends:  the cut off point for the height of the ski resorts is increasing every year, and at the same time some resorts have fewer skiers.  The likelihood of snow and the ability to offer snow-related products are critical to the success of all ski resorts.  Isaberg, which is significantly below any proposed height cut off points, has strong traditions, a promising market with skiers coming from the domestic Swedish market, as well as Norway, Denmark, Germany and Holland, and very modern facilities – but in recent years the resort has been suffering because of the lack of snow. Isaberg is therefore considering building an inside skiing facility to attract customers and support other local products. Our paper examines the potential of this facility and offers practical and theoretical implications for ski resort management.

    Att överbrygga mellan traditionell industri och upplevelseindustri2010In: Entreprenörskap i regioners tjänst: Ingångar till nya näringar genom design, upplevelser, kulturarv / [ed] Johannisson Bengt & Rylander David, Jönköping: EIDI , 2010, p. 111-130Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Nya näringar utvecklas alltid i ett sammanhang som skapats av befintligt närings- och samhällsliv. I detta kapitel fokuserar vi på hinder och möjligheter inför en omvandling av näringslivet i Gnosjöregionen. Regionen karakteriseras mer än de flesta andra i Sverige av en småskalig tillverkningsindustri. Sysselsättningsgraden totalt sett är en av de högsta i landet, såväl bland män och kvinnor som nya svenskar, invandrarna. I takt med utflyttning av verksamhet och automatisering av tillverkningsprocesser minskar behovet av arbetskraft inom traditionell industri vilket ökar kravet på att utveckla nya kompletterande näringar. Omvandling från tillverkningsintensiv produktion till serviceinriktad upplevelseindustri med turism är för många regioner en viktig utmaning. Upplevelseindustrin förväntas bidra till tillväxt och en mer mångsidig arbetsmarknadsstruktur, särskilt attraktiv för unga människor. Omvandlingen mot en mer diversifierad näringsstruktur försvåras av den kulturella fixeringen vid den tidigare så framgångsrika tillverkningsindustrin. Många anonyma ”röster” menar att jobb och företag inom turism och annan upplevelse-industri inte räknas som ”riktiga” jobb och företag. En omorientering av regionens näringsliv måste drivas inifrån/underifrån för att bli beständig, något som tidigare förändringsförsök vittnar om. Samtidigt behövs inspiration utifrån. Kapitlet avslutas med en exemplifiering av Isaberg, som en väletablerad anläggning för friluftsliv, ett etablisse-mang inom upplevelseindustri, som vill vända snöbrist till en möjlighet att överbrygga säsongsvariationer. Ambitionerna för utvecklingen av Isaberg visar potentialen inom turism och annan upplevelseindustri i strävan efter en alternativ näringslivsstruktur.

    Regional samverkan inom turism: Exempel från Gnosjöregionen2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med rapporten är att studera förutsättningar för regional samverkan inom turism mellan kommunerna Gislaved, Gnosjö, Vaggeryd och Värnamo och komma med förslag på åtgärder som kan främja en konkurrenskraftig destinationsutveckling. Rapporten grundar sig på en analys av ett antal teoretiska utgångspunkter liksom praktiska exempel som stöd för att förstå de resultat som fångats upp. Ett antal intervjuer med kommunala tjänstemän och företrädare för näringen visar att det finns flera frön för framtida samverkan i regionen. Det gemensamma arbetet innebär deltagande i mässor, gemensam marknadsföring, gemensamma kartor med ett direkt värde för turister och med en lägre kostnad för entreprenörer och kommun. Kartläggningen av kommunala och regionala förutsättningar visar att en rad attraktioner har potential för attraktionskraft och vidare utveckling.

    I intervjuer och samtal har vi kunnat urskilja vissa kommunikationsproblem mellan kommunerna. Information når inte alltid fram. Det efterlyses större applicering av gemensamma databaser, som skapar ökad genomskinlighet och jämförbarhet mellan kommuner. Effektivare användning av teknik tillsammans med kompetensutveckling kan förbättra kommunikationen mellan aktörerna i regionen.

    Vi föreslår att funktionen av nätverket kan förbättras genom fördjupad samverkan kring mässor, marknadsföring, en gemensam portal, mellan företag genom fler forum för samverkan såsom träffpunkt Store Mosse.

    Vidare föreslås att gemensam identitet kring samverkan kan fördjupas. En väg är att GGVV och Gnosjöregionen ersätts med ett nytt namn som syftar framåt för fördjupad samverkan. Vi tror att kommunerna kan förlora på att helt överge varumärket `Gnosjöregionen´, som utstrålar starka industritraditioner men samtidigt vinna mycket på att gå framåt med ett namn som vinner större uppslutning.

    The elements of brand strategy: An empirical investigation.2009In: South African Institute of Management Science Conference 2009. September 14-15th in Port Elizabeth, South Africa., 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a testable model, including a number of new measures examining the various components of brand strategy. Using structural equation modeling we were able to test the underlying factor structure for the proposed model and measurements as well as validate the sequences in the proposed model, among brand managers in the Top 500 South African Companies. We used a two-step approach, in which our first confirmatory factor analysis step indicated that our sample fits the data well, including acceptable loadings for the proposed latent constructs. In our next step we validated the paths in our proposed sequential model. This second step supported all of the hypotheses. The results of our analysis revealed a very strong positive relationship between brand positioning and brand architecture. Although both brand values and brand personality influence each other directly, both constructs exerts another, less direct influence on brand architecture via brand positioning. Our model has strategic implications on brand marketing research and practice. As to develop brand architecture our research implicates that this should be based on brand positioning, which depends on brand personality and brand values, with the latter having a more dominant influence on brand positioning than brand personality.

    Attitudes to change in Gnosjöregion2009In: Presented at The international Symposium on Entrepreneurship in Tourism, Rovaniemi, Finland, March 17-21, 2009, 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study promotes ideas into two main academic areas, that is attitudes towards change processes and regional development.  The implications of the study are written to tourism in the Gnosjöregion and other countryside areas. We specifically ask what attitudes towards change processes in development projects in tourism generate commitments to tourism and to what extent these effects are moderated by perceived involvement. Our objective is to develop more knowledge to the area of attitudes within project management. The results of the study engender from a pre-study from 59 responses of a survey distributed during spring 2008 in the Gnosjöregion. Our major implication is that future study may consider freedom rather than interest towards working in change processes and that these effects are also moderated when individuals perceive an enhanced involvement. Our study is a first attempt to develop these two areas and results should therefore be read and interpreted with the same carefulness as any pre-study is prepared and conducted.

    Trust and loyalty relations among small tourism enterprises in the seaside villages2009In: Proceedings of the International Conference on Tourism Development and Management, Kos Island, Greece, 11-14 September 2009., 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies trust and loyalty relationships among small tourism enterprises (STEs) in the seaside villages in Turkey. A theoretical model of trust and loyalty among small tourism enterprises was developed and tested. Our sample consists of four villages which are dominated by STEs. The STEs in villages operate under difficult conditions because of the inadequate tourism infra-structure and extra-structure in the region.  The selected villages are localized in same bay in Bozburun Peninsula. Our field study was conducted during August 2008 and February 2009 by using a questioner. Our findings indicate that friendship and loyalty are related variables. In addition we found that trust has a significant effect on loyalty and that loyalty further breed cooperation. As for mediation we found following: Loyalty is an important factor for improving cooperation among STEs in the villages. Therefore, eventually collaborative processes based on trust and loyalty must be improved in the destination network. This is the first case study on the trust and loyalty relations of STEs in Turkey.

    Validating a model of cooperative procurement in the construction industry2009In: International Journal of Project Management, ISSN 0263-7863, E-ISSN 1873-4634, ISSN 0263-7863, Vol. 27, no 6, p. 552-559Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Project management in the construction industry involves coordination of many tasks and individuals, affected by complexity and uncertainty, which increases the need for efficient cooperation. Procurement is crucial since it sets the basis for cooperation between clients and contractors. This is true whether the project is local, regional or global in scope. Traditionally, procurement procedures are competitive, resulting in conflicts, adversarial relationships and less desirable project results. The purpose of this paper is to propose and empirically test an alternative procurement model based on cooperative procurement procedures that facilitates cooperation between clients and contractors in construction projects. The model is based on four multi-item constructs – incentive-based compensation, limited bidding options, partner selection and cooperation. Based on a sample of 87 client organisations, the model was empirically tested and exhibited strong support, including content, nomological, convergent and discriminant validity, as well as reliability. Our findings indicate that partner selection based on task related attributes mediates the relationship between two important pre-selection processes (incentive-based compensation and limited bid invitation) and preferred outcome of cooperation. The contribution of the paper is identifying valid and reliable measurement constructs and confirming a unique sequential order for achieving cooperation. Moreover, the findings are applicable for many types of construction projects because of the similarities in the construction industry worldwide.

    To protect and attract: firms cooperating in nature-based tourism destinations2008In: Tourism, Culture & Communication, ISSN 1098-304X, E-ISSN 1943-4146, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 159-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores solutions to potential communication problems that arise from cooperation in nature-based tourism (NBT) destinations. The questions posed in this article are: "When is a local firm in an NBT destination likely to cooperate with other firms?" and "How can cooperation be facilitated among NBT firms?" The primary focus of our research, therefore, is how to facilitate cooperation in NBT destinations. To do so, we first review different risk elements by describing a simulated scenario in which two participants (NBT firms) confront a prisoner's dilemma with different options—cooperation and competition. The outcome of that scenario demonstrates that cooperation is only rational when the benefits of cooperation are greater than those for competition. Such situations do not occur in single games involving the prisoner's dilemma, but only in infinitely repeated games. Because cooperation may not be rational from a game theoretic perspective, policy makers and the firms involved should work actively to increase the benefits of cooperation. We conclude that cooperation is best achieved by having activities coordinated either by a strong, aggressive company or a strategic hierarchical network. Our logic is that coordinating activities from one point will increase the likelihood that partners have the same information and thus minimize conflicts.

    Inter-organizational commitment in tourism networks in U.S2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    How does the process of inter-organizational commitment develop between tourism firms? This paper proposes and tests a theoretical model of inter-organizational commitment. The model is based on six constructs and was tested on 99 small and medium sized firms. The model exhibits nomological, convergent and discriminant validity, as well as reliability. The contribution of the paper is related to measurement development as well as identifying a unique sequential order to the process of inter-organizational commitment. It also suggests policy implications for successful development of the tourism industry in remote geographical areas.

    Cooperative Strategies for Improving the Tourism Industry in Remote Geographic Regions: An Addition to Trust and Commitment Theory with one Key Mediating Construct2008In: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 48-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The success of cooperative relationships is influenced by interorganizational commitment, which is a long-run goal of networks. Our research examined cooperative relationships in the tourism industry to better understand what makes them successful. The study is an extension of previous empirical research on commitment. The overall research questions were: “What factors lead to interorganizational commitment in remote tourism destinations?” and “What are the relationships between the factors?” A literature search was conducted to identify factors related to organizational commitment. Search findings suggested a model proposing that interpersonal commitment mediates the effect of trust and reciprocity on interorganizational commitment. Data for the model was collected from a sample of tourism firms in successful cooperative networks. The theoretical model was purified based on convergent, nomological and discriminant validity as well as construct reliability. Our findings demonstrated that the relationship between trust and interorganizational commitment is in fact mediated by interpersonal commitment. We confirmed that reciprocity is directly related to interorganizational commitment, and is not mediated by interpersonal commitment. Thus, tourism firms should develop cooperative strategies in their networks by focusing on enhancing interpersonal commitment through trust, thereby ultimately helping to strengthen interorganizational commitment.

    Motives, Partner Selection and Establishing Trust Reciprocity and Interorganizational Commitment2010In: International Journal of Tourism Policy, ISSN 1750-4104, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 62-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes and tests a theoretical model of Inter-Organisational Commitment (IOC). The model is based on six constructs and was tested on 99 small and medium sized firms. The model examines interaction and non-interaction between firms to develop a model. The theoretical model suggests that firms enter relationships in sequences, where they first consider motives and partner preferences before interaction takes place. Later in the sequence more extensive interactions develop into committed relationships that have consequences influenced by Trust (TRU) and Reciprocity (RCP) perceptions, which influence and promote lasting IOCs. The tested model exhibits nomological, convergent and discriminant validity, as well as reliability. The contribution of the paper is related to measurement development as well as to identifying a unique sequential order to the process of IOC. It also suggests policy implications for successful development of the tourism industry in remote geographical areas.

    Do satisfaction and attachment mediate the relationship between service quality and loyalty?2008In: World Journal of Tourism Small Business Management, ISSN 1991-1394, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 5-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines whether satisfaction mediates the relationship between service quality and attachment in a tourism context?  It also examines whether attachment mediates the relationships between service quality and satisfaction on loyalty?  To answer these questions we tested five models that pose fourteen hypotheses.  Our model indicates that satisfaction mediates service quality and that attachment mediates service quality on loyalty.  The proposed model exhibits acceptable levels of construct validity and reliability.  Thus, we believe the models have important implications for theory and practice in the tourism field.

    Test of Moderating Effects Between Destination Image and Satisfaction2008In: World Journal of Tourism Small Business Management, ISSN 1991-1394, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 5-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes and tests a model of four different scales of destination image and their link to satisfaction.  In addition the analysis controls for tourists that are first time visitors versus repeat, their gender, their spending and their age.  The focus of the model is represented by satisfaction, which is considered a requirement that must be met for the success of the overall trip.  Data was collected in Sweden.  The model is assessed with several multivariate methods and it generates acceptable levels of validity and reliability.  Results for the final regression model also suggest avenues for further research on high spenders tourists that are in older age categories.

    Board network characteristics and company performance in Sweden: The case of Gnosjö companies and their board members in southern Sweden2008In: Innovation, Competitiveness, Growth and Tradition in SMEs: Rencontres de St-Gall 2008, St. Gallen: KMU Verl. , 2008, p. 1-13Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In focus of this paper are selected characteristics of enterprise boards and their influences on perfor-mance in companies located in Gnosjö, one of Sweden´s best known industrial districts. The aim and contribution of this paper is to propose and test a model that reflects the relationship between board characteristics, administration and company age on performance. Our results show that number of commitments among board members as well as company age is significant for company performance measured with sales and sales per employee. The support of the model is strong and we believe the results have practical as well as theoretical implications of importance.

    Proposing a Gap Theory of Tourism Destination Image and Validating its Correspondence to Satisfaction2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a new measure based on developing gap ratios between expected images of a tourism destination and experienced images. By measuring the gap between experienced and expected destination images we enable the ratios to vary on a larger scale ranging from -6 to +6. The result of our proposed gap definition theory is that we do not focus on consumers that found certain images important but primarily on those consumers that vary between what they expect and what they experience. Another important consequence is that the approach also facilitates dealing with the issue of respondents’ likelihood to score highly on questions relating to selected product or location attributes and also imputes skewed responses to the middle, thereby creating measurements that more closely approximate a normal distribution. A further important implication of the paper is it also links four destination image factors to satisfaction and examines the proposed hypotheses. The objective of the paper is to establish a general model between image and satisfaction. To date a total of 288 responses have been collected from Sweden and Turkey. Our hope is that this project will stimulate further research and ultimately validation of the proposed measurement and analysis approach. Our sample consists of tourists that voluntarily accepted to share their preferences. Since we are proposing a new type of ratio analysis, with relatively limited sample size, we also had to delete several items that were either not normally distributed or exhibited unacceptable reliability and validity.  Our theory is practically oriented and implies a new theoretical direction within destination image research. Our proposed theory is also developed in an effort to demonstrate a greater correspondence between empirical settings and theoretical assumptions.
