    Öga för öga! Eller?: En kvalitativ studie kring elevers ställningstaganden då de ställs inför etiska dilemman rörande kränkande behandling2016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är sedan tidigare konstaterat att ut­budet av tidigare forskning kring elevers etiska förhållningssätt är ma­gert. Syftet med denna studie är därför att undersöka elevers ställningstagan­den då de ställs inför etiska dilemman kopplade till kränkande behandling i skolan. Studien är inspirerad av kritisk hermeneutik, vilket innebär att den del­vis präglas av en förutbestämd teori mot vilken empirin prövas. Empirisk data har samlats in via semistrukture­rad­e parintervjuer, vilka har spelas in och genom transkribering omvand­lats till skriven text. I studiens resultat­kapi­tel presenteras elever­nas ställnings­tagan­den och moti­veringar till dessa. I kapitlet framkommer även vilka lik­heter och skillnader som kan identi­fieras i elevernas ställningstaganden. Efter utförd analys av empirin kan slut­satsen dras att det finns uttryck i elevernas ställningstaganden som kan kopplas till de etiska redskapen.

    Abstract [en]

    In the future a part of the the old industrial area on the western side of lakeMunksjön in Jönköping will be settled with residential buildings. The aim withthis examination project is to formulate a exploitation proposal over the southernpart of this area. The result will be presented as illustrations of the area and itsproposed buildings.The purpose is to create an attractive, sustainable and pleasant neighbourhoodwhere architectural beauty, variation and the location next to water is in focus.Variation is created through differentiated buildings which are given uniformity indesign through equal materials and similar style.In order to maximize the use of the unique location by the water, the startingpoint has been to give all apartments a view over the lake. In addition to that, thewater is also used for settlement. Walking areas around the site also give the publicat large access to the beautiful location.Sustainable building is a topical issue at the moment and has been a centralthought throughout the project regarding design of both buildings and localenvironment.In order to find inspiration and solutions, similar areas have been studied throughstudy visits. The visits and ideas from these have been essential for the continuedwork and the design of the area.The project has resulted in a green area with varied buildings, modern architectureand sustainable solutions. The area's situation close to the water has been fullyused in a way that not only the residents in these houses, but also other people,can take part of.2

    Omplacering av MDU2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report aims to describe the work of a bachelor thesis with a major in product development at Saab. The bachelor thesis is to improve one of Saabs existing products called MIT, short for “Moving Infantry Target”. MIT is used all around the world in harsh environment with high standards. MIT consists of one of Saabs other product SIT, short for “Stationary Infantry Target”, mounted on a trolley. SIT is a standard product of Saab but has to be modified before being mounted on MIT. The modification consists of the MDU, short for “Motor driving Unit”, and is a circuit board for controlling the electric engines located on the MIT trolley. The thesis aims to relocate the MDU from inside the SIT to the MIT trolley and still fulfill the requirements of the MIT. One important requirement is that all products need to have IP classification 67. IP classification is a standard measurement on how water and dust proof a product is.

    To fulfill the requirements a protective box for MDU was developed. During the process there was some question in focus. Where should the box be located? Which manufacturing and materials should be used? How should the cable go inside the box and at the same time have IP classification 67? This was the basis for the work when developing the concepts. Two concepts were created in total. The first concept is about the location and how to attach MDU with the protective box. Next step concept is about how the lid will be attached and the cable lead-through.

    A 3D model was created using the winning concepts and from that 3D model a prototype was created. The prototype was manufactured with a 3D printer.

    ”Man behöver ju varje människa”: En diskursanalys av förskollärares och barnskötares fokusgruppsamtal om ansvarsfördelningen kring undervisning i förskolan.2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie handlar om ansvarsfördelningen gällande undervisning i förskolans utbildning. Studiens syfte är att utifrån fokusgruppsamtal göra en diskursanalys av barnskötares och förskollärares tal kring ansvaret för undervisning i förskolan. Studiens forskningsfråga är: 

    • Vilka diskurser om ansvarsfördelningen gällande undervisning i förskolan framträder i fokusgruppsamtalen? 

    Studiens teori och metod är sammanlänkade då den teoretiska utgångspunkten är diskursanalys. Empirin har analyserats med hjälp av begreppen modalitet, etos och genre som Fairclough (1992) erbjuder inom den kritiska diskursanalysen. Resultatet presenteras i diskurser vilka är: professionsdiskursen, otillräcklighetsdiskursen, ansvarsdiskursen och arbetslagsdiskursen.Professionsdiskursen visar att professionen påverkar undervisningsansvaret. I otillräcklighetsdiskursen uttrycker barnskötarna att styrdokumentens formuleringar innebär att deras kompetens inte är tillräcklig för barns utveckling och lärande. Det framkommer i ansvarsdiskursen att förskollärarna upplever en etisk aspekt i att ansvara för någon annans handlingar. Arbetslagsdiskursen lyfter betydelsen av att ta tillvara på alla kompetenser oavsett profession. Utöver dessa diskurser uppstod även diskussioner om vad undervisning i förskolan innebär.

    On the retention and effectiveness of fissure sealant in permanent molars after 15-20 years: a cohort study2001In: Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology, ISSN 0301-5661, E-ISSN 1600-0528, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 302-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to clinically evaluate fissure sealants on the occlusal fissures and buccal pits of permanent first and second molars after 20 and 15 years, respectively. The population consisted of 72 children, each of whom had had their four first molars sealed between 1977 and 1980. At the annual examinations, all caries-free, newly erupted second molars were sealed. When sealant was applied to the second molars, the first molars were checked and sealant was reapplied to those that had deficient sealants. At the follow-up, when the subjects were 26-27 years of age, 27 in the original group had moved from the community. Thus, the present result is based on 45 subjects. One hundred and fifty-three sealed first molars and 161 sealed second molars were available for inspection. At the follow-up examination of the first molars 20 years after sealant had been applied, 65% showed complete retention, 22% partial retention without caries, and 13% caries or restoration in the occlusal fissures or buccal pits. At the 15-year follow-up of the second molars, the corresponding figures were 65%, 30%, and 5%, respectively Of the restored or carious molars, significantly more were found in the mandible than in the maxilla (P<0.001). This longitudinal study showed that pit and fissure sealants-applied during childhood-have a long lasting, caries-preventive effect.

    A study of the marketing knowledge among single person businesses2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose is to gain an understanding of the marketing knowledge and tools single person businesses have and use within the service sector in southern Sweden.

    Previous research on single person businesses in Sweden and their marketing knowledge and usage of marketing tools is very scarce. Many small firms suffer from resource poverty and this is often a reason for why they market their firms in certain ways. By asking single person business owners why, how and what they do to market their firms the authors will find a general pattern and a deeper understanding. During a pre-study conducted to capture the essence of the issue before starting the research, it was found that there existed several marketing knowledge gaps. It is therefore of interest to study the marketing knowledge among single person business owners in Sweden.

    To meet the purpose a qualitative research approach was chosen. The qualitative data was collected through six in-depth interviews with single person business owners. The answers from the interviews generated a picture of the usage of marketing knowledge and tools among single person business owners in Sweden.

    The result of this study showed that all of the single person business owners thought that since their firms were small businesses, well developed marketing strategies was more of a luxury than a necessity. It was clear that they instead used effectual reasoning when marketing their firms. Concerning knowledge, the results showed that a mixture of education and work experience is the optimal combination. It was also clear that service firms usually find difficulties with intangibility and all of the interviewees knew that they have to use a special approach when marketing services. Through the authors’ findings, it is hard to tell if there is an optimal marketing strategy since most of the interviewees do not perform any follow-ups and therefore do not know what works and what does not.

    Leadership affection in a process oriented organisation: A case study within Vägverket2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Focus on processes within organisations emerged during the nineteen ninetees and has since then become the most dominant management method. The main aim and positive features of process orientation is the customer focus and increased flexibility/efficiency. There is not much academic research conducted to leadership combined with processorientation. With this thesis we will minor that gap. The change into a process oriented approach makes a drastic change and the leadership could be a key factor or problem when implementing it.

    Purpose with the thesis: The purpose of this thesis is to increase the understanding of how leadership is affected, on a top managerial level, as a result of implementing a process oriented approach.

    Method: In this thesis we have used a qualitative method and a hermeneutic approach to increase the understanding of how the leadership is affected of process orientation. We have made a case study on the Swedish Road Administration, Vägverket who has done a process orientation. We have made six interviews with topmanagers at their headoffice.

    Conclusion: We have come up with a model that states that a leader within a process oriented organisation can be compared with a tour guide. The model is based on our five key findings of how leadership is affected by changing into process orientation. These are: lead change, achieve aims, increase teamwork, increase communication and increase holistic view. These characteristics applies on a leader when changing into a process oriented organisation.

    Remaining useful life of customer relationships: Valuation in accordance with IFRS 32006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the year of 2000 the European Commission adopted a communication

    called EU Financial Reporting Strategy: the Way Forward. The communication intended to make all listed companies within the EU arrange their financial statements in accordance with

    International Accounting Standards by 2005 at the latest. When the amendments of IFRS 3 was introduced in March 2004 it meant that companies from that moment on, when acquiring another company, have to allocate the part of the purchase price assignable to customer contracts and the related customer relationships as an intangible asset. IFRS 3 does not give any guidance whatsoever on how to

    accomplish the above described allocation and estimate a true and fair value of customer contracts and relationships. Let alone any direction regarding the establishment of the remaining useful life of the customer relationships and contracts, which constitutes the

    foundation of the fair valuation but also a true and fair view regarding amortizations. The purpose of this thesis is to examine how the establishments regarding remaining useful life of customer relationships and contracts have been done. Furthermore, the purpose of this thesis is to explain the decision process and motives that results in why management choose to apply the specific remaining useful life of customer relationships and contracts they do. This study has been carried out with a qualitative approach involving two listed group companies within three different industries, hence, six companies are involved in this thesis. Semi-structured telephone interviews have been made with the companies and the annual reports have been examined. In order to explain the actions behind the valuation and establishment process, the positive accounting theory has been used. None of the six companies taking part in this study have applied an outspoken method for the establishment of the remaining useful life of the customer relationships and contracts and only half of the companies have identified different customer groups. A relation can be identified between using an external consultant

    and applying different remaining lives for different customer groups. All companies amortize the customer relationships and contracts on a straight-line basis. This can be explained by the positive accounting theory to some extent. All companies applied straight-line amortization even though some of them actually admit that a declining

    balance would provide a fairer view. Furthermore, long amortization plans are used in some companies in order to decrease the amortization costs and hence increase the net income. Positive accounting has been applied in order to shift reported earnings.

    Purpose – The purpose of this thesis is to examine how the establishments regarding remaining useful life of customer relationships and contracts have been done. Furthermore, the purpose of this thesis is to explain the decision process and motives that results in why management choose to apply the specific remaining useful life of customer relationships and contracts they do.

    Method – This study has been carried out with a qualitative approach involving two listed group companies within three different industries, hence, six companies are involved in this thesis. Semi-structured telephone interviews have been made with the companies and the annual reports have been examined. In order to explain the actions behind the valuation and establishment process, the positive accounting theory has been used.

    Conclusion – None of the six companies taking part in this study have applied an outspoken method for the establishment of the remaining useful life of the customer relationships and contracts and only half of the companies have identified different customer groups. A relation can be identified between using an external consultant and applying different remaining lives for different customer groups. All companies amortize the customer relationships and contracts on a straight-line basis. This can be explained by the positive accounting theory to some extent. All companies applied straight-line amortization even though some of them actually admit that a declining balance would provide a fairer view. Furthermore, long amortization plans are used in some companies in order to decrease the amortization costs and hence increase the net income. Positive accounting has been applied in order to shift reported earnings.

    Post-political Numbness of a Digital Society: The Political Condition of Environmental Activism on Twitter2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past decades, a widespread consensus has emerged regarding the anthropogenic causes and negative impacts of climate change. For instance, the environmental pollution reaches alarming dimensions on a global level implying immanent dangers to the future of humankind and nature. The need to take action in order to maintain the integrity of human and environmental systems has long been recognised by most political elites, business leaders, activists and the scientific community. Yet, it seems that political and economic institutions do not move on fast enough from words to actions. At the same time, a depoliticisation of the public sphere is observed repressing a radical critical discourse. Several political theorists and philosophers debate about the emergence of a post-political and postdemocratic condition, implying a state of politics of consensus.

    The thesis at hand aimed to investigate the post-political condition of climate change activism in the online realm by means of the case of a rather recent trend of environmental activism, the zero waste movement. A quantitative content analysis was conducted studying 500 #zerowaste tweets that were posted in April 2018. The content characteristics of the Twitter postings were analysed and a coding system developed to measure the post-political condition of communication practices in the environmental pollution debate on Twitter. 

    The study finds that in particular civic actors (citizen and public personalities), commercial and nonprofit organisations engaged in the zero waste debate distributing informative content mobilising the public to make certain lifestyle decisions. It is furthermore revealed that the #zerowaste debate on Twitter is evidently depoliticised. The communication practices on the social media platform incorporated in many ways discursive strategies such as universalisation and externalisation resulting in a rationalised and moralised representation of the problem of environmental pollution.

    Optitrain: a randomised controlled exercise trial for women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy2017In: BMC Cancer, ISSN 1471-2407, E-ISSN 1471-2407, Vol. 17, article id 100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy suffer from a range of detrimental disease and treatment related side-effects. Exercise has shown to be able to counter some of these side-effects and improve physical function as well as quality of life. The primary aim of the study is to investigate and compare the effects of two different exercise regimens on the primary outcome cancer-related fatigue and the secondary outcomes muscle strength, function and structure, cardiovascular fitness, systemic inflammation, skeletal muscle gene activity, health related quality of life, pain, disease and treatment-related symptoms in women with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy. The second aim is to examine if any effects are sustained 1, 2, and 5 years following the completion of the intervention and to monitor return to work, recurrence and survival. The third aim of the study is to examine the effect of attendance and adherence rates on the effects of the exercise programme.

    Methods: This study is a randomised controlled trial including 240 women with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy in Stockholm, Sweden. The participants are randomly allocated to either: group 1: Aerobic training, group 2: Combined resistance and aerobic training, or group 3: usual care (control group). During the 5-year follow-up period, participants in the exercise groups will receive a physical activity prescription. Measurements for endpoints will take place at baseline, after 16 weeks (end of intervention) as well as after 1, 2 and 5 years.

    Discussion: This randomised controlled trial will generate substantial information regarding the effects of different types of exercise on the health of patients with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy. We expect that dissemination of the knowledge gained from this study will contribute to developing effective long term strategies to improve the physical and psychosocial health of breast cancer survivors.

    Teknikintensivt nyföretagande och tillväxt i branscher och företag2012In: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, no 6, p. 36-49Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur olika typer av entreprenörskap stimulerar ekonomisk tillväxt är fortfarande en empiriskt outforskad fråga. Dessutom har teorier om relationen mellan entreprenörskap och tillväxt i mycket begränsad utsträckning beaktat branschstrukturens roll för tillväxt. I denna uppsats söker vi undersöka detta genom två forskningsfrågor: Bidrar teknikintensivt nyföretagande relativt mer till tillväxt i branscher med mer behov av ny teknik? Är tillväxten av nya teknikbaserade företag betingad av vissa branschstrukturers behov av ny teknik? Vi undersöker dessa frågor med hjälp av en mikro-meso modell av endogen tillväxt som testas på en totalräknad databas av kunskapsintensiva sektorer i Sverige mellan 1995–2002

    Implications of Intra-Family and External Ownership Transfer of Family Firm: short-term and long-term performance differences2011In: Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, ISSN 1932-4391, E-ISSN 1932-443X, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 352-372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We contrast the performance consequences of intra-family versus external ownership transfers. Investigating a sample of all private family firms in Sweden that went through ownership transfers during 10 years, we find that firms transferred to external owners outperform those transferred within the family, but that survival is higher among intra-family transfers. We attribute these performance differences to the long-term orientation of family firms passed on to the next generation and to the entrepreneurial willingness of acquirers to bear uncertainty. Based on distinct ownership transition routes and theoretical mechanisms explaining performance differences, we outline implications for family business and entrepreneurship research.

    Reconceptualizing entrepreneurial exit: Divergent exit routes and their drivers2010In: Journal of Business Venturing, ISSN 0883-9026, E-ISSN 1873-2003, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 361-375Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We develop a conceptual model of entrepreneurial exit which includes exit through liquidation and firm sale for both firms in financial distress and firms performing well. This represents four distinct exit routes. In developing the model, we complement the prevailing theoretical framework of exit as a utility-maximizing problem among entrepreneurs with prospect theory and its recent applications in liquidation of investment decisions. We empirically test the model using two Swedish databases which follow 1,735 new ventures and their founders over eight years. We find that entrepreneurs exit from both firms in financial distress and firms performing well. In addition, commonly examined human capital factors (entrepreneurial experience, age, education) and failure-avoidance strategies (outside job, reinvestment) differ substantially across the four exit routes, explaining some of the discrepancies in earlier studies.

    The effectiveness of university knowledge spillovers: performance differences between university spinoffs and corporate spinoffs2011In: Research Policy, ISSN 0048-7333, E-ISSN 1873-7625, Vol. 40, no 8, p. 1128-1143Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While much prior research has focused upon how the Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) and other contextual characteristics shape the level of university spinoffs (USO), there is little research on entrepreneurial potential among individual academics, and to the best of our knowledge, no comparative studies with other types of spinoffs exist to date. In this paper we focus on an important but neglected aspect of knowledge transfer from academic research involving the indirect flow to entrepreneurship by individuals with a university education background who become involved in new venture creation by means of corporate spinoffs (CSO) after gaining industrial experience, rather than leaving university employment to found a new venture as an academic spinoff. We argue that the commercial knowledge gained by industry experience is potentially more valuable for entrepreneurial performance compared to the academic knowledge gained by additional research experience at a university. This leads us to posit that the average performance of CSOs will be higher than comparable USOs, but the gains from founder‘s prior experiences will be relatively higher among USOs whose founders lack the corporate context. We investigate these propositions in a comparative study tracking the complete population of USOs and CSOs among the Swedish knowledge-intensive sectors between 1994 and 2002.

    The Influence of Socialization in the Succession Process: A Case Study of a Women Owned Family Business2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Family firms generate many job opportunities and they are highly important to the economy (Astrachan & Shanker, 2003). Yet many family firms do not make it to the next generation. Thus, succession is a tricky issue. There may be many things that create resistance to the succession. An important aspect to consider is the socialization of the successor into the family business. During the socialization process the successor learns more about the business and its culture and gets increasingly involved in the firm (Iannarelli, 1992). Women face additional difficulties in the succession process and it has been found that they are not often considered as potential successors (Ibrahim et al., 2001). Hence, this thesis will take a female perspective to shed light upon the situation of women.

    The purpose of this study is to explore how the successor may get socialized into the family business, together with the difficulties in the succession process and how these things may be handled, and also women’s situations in this.

    This study is a qualitative study, which has taken the approach of a case study. Three semi-structured interviews have been carried out with family members from two generations who all have been active in the family business.

    Some of the most important actions in the socialization process were: business talk at home, the opportunity of being together with the parents and watching them, work experiences within the company, and encouragement from socialization agents. The socialization process and the succession process are highly integrated and the effectiveness of the socialization will determines how well prepared the successor is in the succession process. The socialization process provides a great opportunity of giving the successor the necessary competence and accordingly the socialization process is of great importance for an effective and successful succession. That is, this study concludes that the socialization process influences the smoothness of the succession process. It is therefore important to create awareness about the socialization process. The owner’s reluctant in handing over the business may depend on the firm being integrated with the owner’s life. To overcome resistance it is important with understanding and mutual respect for each other. One should also try to find a new and exciting role which the predecessor can take on. If the phase where the predecessor and the successor work together is undertaken properly the succession will become smoother. Even though the difficulties for women in family businesses have diminished over the years there are still great differences between women’s and men’s situations. Women have to prove their competence and that they deserve their position.

    Illness narratives of persons with post-polio syndrome.2000In: Journal of Advanced Nursing, ISSN 0309-2402, E-ISSN 1365-2648, Vol. 31, no 2, p. 354-361Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study investigated the lifetime illness experience of individuals with the 'late effects' of polio or post-polio syndrome. Fifteen individuals were interviewed twice about their illness experience and the interviews were transcribed verbatim. The empirical material first underwent a categorization process. The preliminary categories generated through this analysis were then condensed into broader categories which in the final analysis gave rise to the following temporal pattern or stages of the illness experience: (1) the acute phase of polio and subsequent treatment and care; (2) rehabilitation and care at institutions for the disabled; (3) adaptation to a new life; (4) living with the post-polio syndrome today, and finally, (5) memories of the past and apprehensions concerning the future. In spite of the difficult experiences of falling ill and slowly recovering from a life-threatening disease, these individuals have had a good life and accomplished most of their ambitions in the areas of work and family life. Their present psychosocial situation is complicated by the symptoms of the post-polio syndrome which make them more vulnerable to stress, but they are able to handle this burden except when any added strain makes it overwhelming. This potential vulnerability may sometimes express itself as a sudden flashback to traumatic polio experiences and it is therefore important that nurses are aware of the illness history of this patient group.

    Using a novel exercise programme for patients with muscular dystrophy. Part I: a qualitative study.2004In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 26, no 10, p. 586-594Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Muscular dystrophy patients have often experimented with different alternative or complementary methods since there is at present no curative medical treatment. PURPOSE: To evaluate, through qualitative analysis of interview data, the subjective experiences of twenty-eight patients with muscular dystrophy practising a complementary method, qigong. METHODS: Semi-structured qualitative interviews were performed and data were analysed by a method inspired by Grounded Theory. The material was first coded into 119 categories, thereafter condensed to 59 categories through a constant comparison analysis. In the final analysis, six broad categories were formed out of these 59 categories. RESULTS: These broad categories were: (1) experience of health care and alternative methods; (2) expectations, acceptance and compliance; (3) qigong as an adaptable form of exercise; (4) stress reduction and mental effects; (5) increased body awareness and physical effects; (6) psychosocial effects of group training. CONCLUSION: Qigong was accepted as a novel exercise regimen and there was a wide variation of experience regarding it among the participants. Depending upon factors such as expectation of benefits, time available to do qigong and perceived effects doing it, compliance varied. One major advantage of qigong is the ability to adapt the different exercises to the physical capability of the person practising qigong. There were reports of mental, physical and psychosocial effects of the qigong, which reduced the feeling of stress and improved well-being.
