    Towards a multi-perspective research program on projects and temporary organizations: Analyzing the Scandinavian turn and the rethinking effort2016Ingår i: International Journal of Managing Projects in Business/Emerald, ISSN 1753-8378, E-ISSN 1753-8386, Vol. 9, nr 4, s. 752-766Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyze important parts of the contemporary development of project research and to outline plausible and desirable directions for the future.

    Design/methodology/approach

    This is accomplished through a review of the “Scandinavian School of Project Management” and “Rethinking Project Management,” which is complemented with a set of questions distributed to 27 active researchers within the project research field from around the world.

    Findings

    Through the analysis the authors show how the two streams have more similarities than differences, despite the fact that they have been initiated in very different contexty 8ts and ways. The authors could also conclude that the “Scandinavian School” appears stronger on the international scene than in the Nordic countries, and that general perception of what the “school” stands for has changed and been blurred with time. Based on the analysis the authors also proposed the need for a broad, more coherent research effort in terms of a multi-perspective research program on projects and temporary organizations. The essence of this would be: an action research profile to improve practice and foresee the future; a combined research focus on institutional change and project practice to ensure both theoretical and empirical progress; and a strong global perspective to further enrich both theory and practice.

    Research limitations/implications

    This research has obvious limitations in terms of empirical scope and response selection. The questionnaire results should therefore be interpreted with care.

    Originality/value

    The value of this research lies in its reflective nature and the proposed trajectory of the project research domain.

    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.

    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.

    Magazine Publishers Embracing New Media: Exploring their capabilities and decision making logic2012Ingår i: Journal of Media Business Studies, ISSN 1652-2354, Vol. 9, nr 2, s. 97-114Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decade, new technologies, such as the Internet, mobile phones and more recently the new reading devices, have posed new challenges for the magazine publishing industry and will continue to do so. Here we explore commonalities among magazine publishers in the forefront of integrating new media into their businesses. We approach this by combining two streams of management literature: dynamic capabilities and decision making. A case study of four innovative magazine publishers has been conducted where the practices related to business development and their underlying decision making logic have been analyzed.

    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.

    Managing Media Supply Chains in European Publishing Companies: Strategic issues, values and partnerships2007Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats
    Abstract [en]

    European publishing companies are quickly digitizing their businesses to achieve cost savings, and increased market reach and penetration. IT is increasingly affecting the ways in which the whole value chain operates. Interaction and collaboration costs have been slashed. Physical assets are no longer the cornerstone of competitive success and value propositions.

    This situation became more critical mainly due to continuous increase in consumer expectations, longer demand chain, conventional mechanism for information flow resulting into poor information visibility, and use of traditional demand forecasting methods. All above issues increase marketing and distribution costs significantly resulting into under performance of firms in the hyper-competitive scenario. Electronic markets are still far from reaching a state of maturity resulting in a difficult task to safely predict the possible transformation in the distribution system structure in the IT environment. This research is an attempt to develop a strategic IT enabled demand chain management model for European publishing companies to enhance efficiency for longterm performance and gaining sustainable competitive advantage. Major results of the study are as follow:

    • Brand management is the most important function of marketing for the present followed by distribution channel management, advertising, sales promotion, logistics, sales administration and management, and demand forecasting and management.

    • Main objectives behind the growing importance of distribution are higher growth and long-term performance of business, greater market dominance and coverage, sustainable competitive advantage, cost containment, and partnering channel 7 relationships. It is because of the fact that product, price and promotion no more bring long-term competitive advantage. Distribution channel strategy is always a wellstructured system, meant for long-term and based on the philosophy of relationships, which is very difficult to copy by competitors.

    • Traditionally, advertising was used for brand building and management. But in the prevailing new emerging environment, emphasis is more on sales promotion and trade promotion instead of advertising. In other words, focus of promotion is more on point-of-sale brand building and management.

    • Information technology (IT) further complicates the whole gamut of distribution. It provides an additional channel of distribution as well as increases the magnitude of competition. It is also a new and powerful information medium for producers, wholesalers and retailers to conduct business among each other enhancing interactivity, productivity, transaction efficiency, and relationships facilitating firms in optimization of resources and containment of total cost.

    • Marketing intermediaries add two types of values namely, logistical and marketing values addition. Intermediaries closer to the firm add high logistical value and less marketing value. Whereas, intermediaries closer to consumers add high logistical as well as marketing values to prevent stock-out.

    • Multi-tier distribution system is prevailing in most of the industrial sectors barring publishing industry. In the new environment, there is every possibility of transformation in the distribution channel structure. These changes may be in the form of disintermediation and/or reintermediation. Disintermediation can be partial or complete (cybermediation). Whereas, reintermediation can be in the form of infomediary and intermediary empowerment.

    • European publishing firms do not prefer cybermediary for mass marketing. Some firms have Internet distribution system but only for niche markets like, institutional markets, highly premium products/brands. In the situation of partial disintermediation, most of the firms would like to prefer C&F agents in the case of publisihing companies. In no case, they have chosen retailers/dealers. The concept of infomediary is not prevailing in Europe at present but consumer respondents prefer to collect information from the Internet and then physically verify books at stores before 8 making purchase decisions. Hence, there is a bright future of infomediary in Europe. Most of the European publishing companies are in the process of integrating their demand chain members (C&F agents and stockiest) on the web for their empowerment. The overwhelming highlights of this system include containment of costs, working methodology, transparency and real-time availability of information regarding order-status, shipment schedules, replies of inquiries, credit status, stockstatus, etc. making them feel significant and committed to achieve predetermined objectives, team spirited, and excited about their work.

    • Partnering channel relationships is an important issue of demand chain management. It is essential to keep channel members happy, loyal and well motivated for higher growth and long-term performance of business. Furthermore, all publishing firms under study have integrating by negotiation strategy for resolution of channel conflicts. Altogether 21 factors have been identified for partnering relationships. These factors have been grouped in nine key relationship factors (KRF) on the basis of nature and characteristics. Accordingly, 5.76 is the maximum value assigned to various aspects related to availability of products and minimum value 4.36 given to zero-defect delivery. Out of nine factors, two factors (prompt information sharing about changes in product profile, sales policy and promotional schemes, and point-topoint information about order status, shipment/delivery schedule and tracking of movement of shipment) are having information components solely. Whereas, the efficiency of remaining seven factors can be significantly improved by the extensive use of information technology. These factors include quick responsiveness for regular availability of products as per normal and unforeseen requirements, no stock-out and fulfillment of delivery commitment, consistency in trade related service quality, prompt logistics system for recovery from defective delivery, reasonable return on investment and infrastructure, fixed and smaller replenishment cycle time, commitment for long-term association, and zero-defect delivery.

    IT enabled Demand Chain Management Business Model On the basis of above results, a new business model has been proposed for demand chain management taking into consideration existing issues and challenges in the new 9 environment. Value proposition of the model has been redefined in terms of “RESPECT” (Reasonable return, Efficiency, Speed, Economy of Scale, Collaboration, and Trust). For the fulfillment of above value proposition, the requirement of information will be comprehensive and its speedy flow across the demand chain, which also needs interface with firm’s ERP and SCM systems. Hence, proposed business model is an IT enabled demand chain management. The highlights of this model are hyper-responsive, partnering relationships, shared value and knowledge, and value-added service. This model also addresses the scope of disintermediation and reintermediation, prevention of unnecessary stockpiles across the demand chain, and cost reduction. The proposed IT enabled demand chain management solutions are based on certain underlying philosophical principles. It includes minimize the number of layers, adopt pull based push strategy, provide a common view of demand, have business intelligence for optimization, develop multiple supply network, continuous replenishment in small quantity, and information transparency and visibility across the demand chain.

    The proposed model is being validated for its feasibility, scope for use and successful implementation in the European publishing sector. On the basis of opinion of experts (top corporate executives heading distribution function), various strategic initiatives have been proposed for successful implementation of new demand chain management system. It includes collaborative planning and scheduling, training and education to demand chain members, demand chain partnering relationships, pro-active demand-driven breakthrough culture, vendor managed inventory system, and customer portfolio management. It is uniquely hyper-responsive linkage between major demand chain partners. To transcend this, however, it requires a broad understanding of marketing and distribution, sharing of information between parties and the development of personal rapport between mangers at a number of levels in all organizations of demand chain for real time quick response. Information technology can support internal operations and collaboration between demand chain members. By the use of high-speed data networks and databases, firms can share data with its business partners to better manage the whole value chain. That is why, the effective use of this technology is a key aspect of firm’s success. All information systems are composed of technology that performs three main functions namely, data capture and communication, data storage and retrieval, and data manipulation and reporting. Various IT enabled managerial processes have been proposed for the optimization of the value of the new model. It include order management, demand planning and forecasting system, inventory management system, transportation planning and scheduling system, leveraging relationship system, advance planning and scheduling system, ERP system, and SCM system.

    For the evaluation and control purposes, a performance scorecard has also been proposed addressing various strategic and functional aspects. Strategic factors include return on assets to firm, return to channel members, order/replenishment cycle time, demand forecast accuracy, profit margin, on-time shipment, inventory turns, cash conversion cycle, sales growth, and marketing and distribution costs. Functional factors deal with frequency of stock-out, defective delivery, real-time information sharing and quality of decision, transparency of system, shared value and customer loyalty, frequency of channel conflict, effectiveness of promotional policies, collaborative planning, scheduling and innovation, resource pooling and risk sharing, and customer support for excellence.

    Process Redesign and Organisational Change: Towards the use of an Integrated Change Method1999Ingår i: Proceedings of the International Conference on TQM and Human Factors: towards successful integration, Linköping: Centre for Studies of Humans, Technology and Organization (CMTO), Univ. , 1999, s. 1008-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of finding appropriate ways to organise and design organisational change processes, and especially their initial phases, is the main question behind this paper. It is argued that a methodological approach is advantageous by guiding the process towards efficiency and effectiveness. The theoretical base for such a method is described concerning change and method theory. Two methods deriving from perspectives of process redesign, quality, ergonomics and organisational theory were integrated. The resulting method was verified in three case studies, concerning change process and method use. The results show that integration of perspectives, situational adaptability, an unbiased initial problem attitude, and a change initiating co-operation between change agent and organisation could be achieved. The developed theory and work structures are advantageous in guiding and legitimising the change process. The work procedures ensure participation and enable both top-down and bottom-up generated improvements to be emphasised.

    If policy (half-heartedly) says ‘yes’, but patriarchy says ‘no’: How the gendered institutional context in Pakistan restricts women entrepreneurship2018Ingår i: Contextual embeddedness of women's entrepreneurship: Going beyond a gender neutral approach / [ed] S.

    Abstract [en]

    Many governments around the world aim to enhance entrepreneurship through different policy measures (Easterly, 2005). Empowering women to participate in entrepreneurship might help in reducing poverty (Hausmann et al., 2009). Also the Government of Pakistan (GoP) has recognized the importance of involving women into the country’s economic development. It claims to be positively committed to fostering women’s entrepreneurship and has taken various actions to promote it. While many studies have assessed measures to enhance women’s entrepreneurship in emerging economies, e.g. regarding training or financing, little attention has been paid so far to assessing the situation in Pakistan (Rehman & Azam Roomi, 2012). Evidence for how policy programmes influence entrepreneurial activities in Pakistan is also missing, as the country has a history of lacking reliable data (e.g., Ali, 2006). Yet, institutional analyses of gender-related policies are important, as institutional contexts can be a liability or asset (Welter, 2011).

    Brand avoidance among Generation Y consumers2016Ingår i: Qualitative Market Research, ISSN 1352-2752, E-ISSN 1758-7646, Vol. 19, nr 1, s. 27-43Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this research is to explore the reasons for brand avoidance among Generation Y consumers. Researchers have traditionally focused on the positive relationship between consumers and brands, but, increasingly, consumers are consciously avoiding brands.

    Design/methodology/approach

    A qualitative study consisting of both focus groups and interviews was conducted among Generation Y participants.

    Findings

    The findings support previous research that identifies four types of brand avoidance, namely, experiential, identity, moral and deficit-value avoidance. However, the study also suggests that an additional type of brand avoidance, namely, advertising avoidance, also occurs. Aspects of advertising that can contribute to brand avoidance include the content of the advertising, the use of a celebrity endorser and the music in the advertising, as well as the response to the advertising. This study thus proposes an expanded framework of brand avoidance.

    Research limitations/implications

    This study has found support for the existing types and reasons impacting brand avoidance but suggests that advertising may also impact brand avoidance. This is an aspect that requires further research.

    Practical implications

    For marketing managers, the findings suggest that not only can product experiences result in brand avoidance, but that advertising may be a further reason for this phenomenon.

    Originality/value

    While there has been a great deal of attention on the positive aspects of brands, research on the negative aspects has largely been ignored. Further, the identification of advertising as a reason for brand avoidance is also suggested.

    Entrepreneurship and projects—Linking segregated communities2014Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 30, nr 2, s. 214-230Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Research in the areas of entrepreneurship and project work management hasfollowed parallel but separate paths. However, in real practice, the connections betweenentrepreneurship and project practice appear stronger. Thus, there are potential research linksto be exploited and the view taken in this article is that there are gains in finding conceptualconnections between the two areas.

    The rationale for this article is that in terms of knowledge building, there is a damagingfragmentation and separation of the two areas. In research there is an emphasis in publishing inniche journals and that emphasis has contributed to a separation of the communities and thefragmentation of knowledge. Similar fragmenting mechanisms can also be found on the practicalside where there is a reliance on 'experts' and on practice specialties.

    In this article we seek to combat this trend and want to contribute to integration anddefragmentation by referring to the development paths of the two areas, by describing existinglinkages and by pointing to the conceptual and practitioner gains to be accrued from linking thetwo areas.

    Process perspectives on entrepreneurship and projects2019Ingår i: International Journal of Managing Projects in Business/Emerald, ISSN 1753-8378, E-ISSN 1753-8386, Vol. 12, nr 1, s. 25-47Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to integrate research on entrepreneurship and projects by applying process perspectives on these two fields with the ambition to shed light on how this kind of alternative perspectives can be used to further the fields in research and practice.

    Design/methodology/approach: This conceptual paper is based on previous research efforts in the two fields and on how they have been treated in the past. Business process research is introduced to enrich notions on how the two areas can be combined.

    Findings: By rearranging thinking about projects, entrepreneurship and processes, and through introducing the notion of “chunks”, the authors illustrate how different types of business processes in different types of project contexts can be coordinated through orchestration and/or choreography.

    Research limitations/implications: The research made for this conceptual paper has been thorough. However, the literature is huge, so the reservation must be made that the authors might have missed some important trends. Anyway, there are implications for how research and analyses of data can be used with the thinking described.

    Originality/value: Combining various lines of research is not common as illustrated by the lack of studies combining entrepreneurship and projects; therefore, by adding process notions and “chunk” reasoning, this paper opens up for innovation and renewal in research. To the authors’ knowledge this approach is new.

    Does media management matter? Establishing the scope, rationale, and future research agenda for the discipline2007Ingår i: Journal of Media Business Studies, ISSN 1652-2354, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 21-39Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The field of media management has grown frenetically. Over the past ten years a rash of courses have sprung up all over the world, two journals have been established, as well as two professional associations for academics working in the field. Yet despite—or perhaps because of—this fast growth it remains a confused field, particularly concerning its scope, purpose and methods. This paper addresses these issues in three ways. First, it analyses the current state of play in the field, with specific reference to the theoretical orientations of key players in the field and the implications these have had for scholarship output to date. Second, it adopts the perspective of the media organization and identifies which aspects characterise, or even differentiate, the management task in this context. Finally, by synthesising these contextual insights with research emphases to date, it makes recommendations for future work in the field, both in terms of theoretical perspectives and methodological orientations.

    Leadership in the media industry: Changing contexts, emerging challenges2006Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of leadership in the media industry is a compelling one. While other industries have leaders or captains, the media sector has moguls, magnates and barons. Randolph Hearst, William Paley, Henry Luce and Robert Maxwell represent some of the most controversial and flamboyant business leaders of recent times. And the current crop of contemporary media industry leaders – Rupert Murdoch, Ted Turner and Steve Jobs – is no less charismatic.

    However leadership is also a sprawling area of management theory characterised by ambiguity and controversy. This volume presents a selection of papers from an international conference on ‘Challenges at the Top: Leadership in Media Organizations’ which brought together researchers from around the world to confront these ambiguities, and explore and exchange opinions about this intriguing issue. The diversity and richness of the contributions in this book reflect the diversity and richness inherent in the practice of leadership as exercised in the media sector. The topic is still an under-researched field, and this book makes a contribution towards developing new theory, identifying fruitful areas for future study, and aiding understanding of the drivers of performance of media firms.

    Leading for creativity in turbulent times2014Ingår i: Handbook of Management and Creativity / [ed] Chris Bilton, Stephen Cummings, Oxford, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2014, s. 189-210Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The creative industries are in transition. Unceasing technological advance, convergence between once distinct sectors and profound changes in how consumers communicate and engage with content has brought dynamism, complexity and uncertainty, transforming virtually every aspect of established ways of doing business. The most important change agent in any organisation is the leader. It is his or her task to analyse these developments, decipher their implications, set strategic priorities, and ensure the necessary organisational changes take place. The failure of legacy organisations to hold their pre-digital market position in a range of sectors indicates the difficulty of these tasks, and the challenges that face leaders of creative organisations. There is surprisingly little research to help leaders of creative organisations surmount their difficulties, surprising because much public discussion about creative organisations centres on the aptitude, abilities or appropriateness of their leaders (think of News Corporation and Rupert Murdoch, Apple and Steve Jobs, Sumner Redstone and Viacom, John Birt and the BBC). The research that does address the field is fragmented and comes from different academic disciplines - organisational creativity, organisational technology, and leadership from management theory, and on the nature of the creative organisations and media industries from media management theory.

    Digital festival engagement: On the interplay between festivals, place brands, and social media2018Ingår i: Event Management, ISSN 1525-9951, E-ISSN 1943-4308, Vol. 22, nr 4, s. 527-540Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to explore the digitization of festival engagement due to the emergence of social media and the associated consequences this development brings for festivals and place brands. This is done by drawing on a study of eight festivals that took place in Sweden during the summer of 2015. In total, a material of 77,034 user-generated contents published in social media were collected and analyzed. The presented results illustrate that the studied festivals enjoy considerable levels of digital engagement and that this also generates engagement for the associated places in which the festivals take place. In view of these findings, this article presents the concepts of digital festival engagement and digital place-brand engagement to explain the interplay that takes place between festivals and place brands in social media. By doing so, this article contributes to extant literature within the field of event management by depicting how the digitization of festival engagement adds increased complexity as engagement manifests both physically and digitally, which in turn gives rise to several conceptual and managerial challenges in regards to the management of consumer engagement.

    Comparing coverage of disruptive change in social and traditional media: Evidence from the sharing economy2018Ingår i: Technological forecasting & social change, ISSN 0040-1625, E-ISSN 1873-5509, Vol. 129, s. 339-344Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    How do social media differ from traditional media in their coverage of disruptive technological change? We explore how two entrants transforming the personal transportation and accommodation sectors are covered in social and traditional media. Using content analysis, we conclude that these two forms of media differ substantially. Traditional media is focused on how the two entrants affect society and their respective sectors at large, whilst social media instead function as accelerators for the entrants as they receive predominantly positive coverage. Therefore, our findings suggest that the rise of social media may accelerate the growth of disruptive innovations which can, in turn, reduce the window for response.

    Exploring barriers to adoption of Virtual Reality through Social Media Analytics and Machine Learning – An assessment of technology, network, price and trialability2019Ingår i: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 100, s. 469-474Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to assess how diffusion of Virtual Reality (VR) technology is taking place and identify potential barriers to increased adoption. This is done by utilising Social Media Analytics to collect a data set covering an empirical material of 6044 user-generated content concerning the market‑leading VR headsets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and machine learning to identify critical barriers to adoption. Our findings suggest that there is a lack of sufficient technological performance of these headsets and that more applications are required for this technology to take off. We contribute to literature on VR by providing a systematic assessment of current barriers to adoption while also pointing out implications for marketing.

    Assessing the interplay between crowdfunding and sustainability in social media2019Ingår i: Technological forecasting & social change, ISSN 0040-1625, E-ISSN 1873-5509, Vol. 141, s. 117-127Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to assess the degree to which sustainability-oriented dimensions are integrated within the public discourse on crowdfunding in social media. Utilizing Social Media Analytics (SMA), we track discussions on crowdfunding in user-generated content published in social media. Based on an empirical material of 141,754 user-generated content, we identify 308 entries (0.21 percent) explicitly or implicitly relating to sustainability and 80 percent of these 308 entries came from professional actors. In this material, 37 sustainability-oriented campaigns are identified and 26 of them (70 percent) received one entry. Taken together, this paper adds to previous literature by assessing and describing the seemingly minor role played by social media with regards to the interplay between crowdfunding and sustainability.

    Sport in business studies: A state-of-the-art literature review2018Ingår i: Sport, Business and Management, ISSN 2042-678X, E-ISSN 2042-6798, Vol. 8, nr 5, s. 529-546Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to provide a systematic review of articles on sport published in leading business studies journals within marketing, organisational studies and strategy.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Based on a review of 38 identified articles within the subfields of marketing, strategy and organisation studies published between 2000 and 2015, the articles’ topical, theoretical and methodological orientation within the studied subfields were analysed followed by a cross-subfield analysis.

    Findings

    The authors identify considerable differences in topical, theoretical and methodological orientation among the studied subfields’ associated articles. Overall, the authors also find that articles across all subfields tend to be focussed on contributing to mature theory, even though the subfield of marketing in particular exhibits contributions to nascent theory in contrast to organisation studies and strategy.

    Originality/value

    This paper contributes by illustrating the current state of research that is devoted or related to the phenomenon of sport within three subfields in business studies. Furthermore, the authors discuss the role played by leading business studies journals vis-à-vis sport sector-specific journals and offer avenues for future research.

    The importance of industry context for new venture internationalisation: A case study from the life sciences2013Ingår i: Journal of International Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1570-7385, E-ISSN 1573-7349, Vol. 11, nr 4, s. 297-319Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During internationalisation, international new ventures in the life sciences industry face distinct challenges. For example, high product development costs push companies into early internationalisation to increase sales turnover and recover investments. At the same time, financial and managerial resource limitations and the demand to adjust to local regulations render internationalisation difficult. To date, relatively little is known about how different industry contexts influence new venture internationalisation processes. This paper presents an in-depth case study of the internationalisation process of a Swedish new venture from the life sciences industry to fill this gap. The findings outline factors in the industry context that affect the internationalisation process, with specific emphasis on entrepreneurs and their networks, leading to several propositions and a model of life sciences new venture internationalisation.

    The changing role of network ties and critical capabilities in an international new venture’s early development2017Ingår i: The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal, ISSN 1554-7191, E-ISSN 1555-1938, Vol. 3, nr 1, s. 113-140Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of networks for firm internationalization has been pointed out for several decades. Especially for small and new firms, networks have been found to be an important tool to gain access to resources and to overcome liabilities of newness, smallness and foreignness. Yet, there is a lack of understanding regarding which types of capabilities are developed through networking and how and when networks are used for growth purposes overtime. The aim of this article is to explore how and when the individual key actors’ competence bases and networking activities create, develop and deploy critical capabilities during different phases of an international new venture’s early development. The article is based on a longitudinal, in-depth case study ofa Swedish international new venture from the medical-technology industry. We find that the development process is greatly affected by the key individual actors’ various competences, existing network ties and their leveraging of different indirect ties during the pre-founding, start-up and establishment of production phases. During the commercialization and sales growth phases, however, many new network ties are developed. The heterogeneity of the individual actors’ backgrounds plays an important role during the different developmental phases. We conclude by advancing a number of propositions inrelation to how critical capabilities are created, developed and deployed through networking during different developmental phases.
