    Proactive integration of environmental con-cerns in business operations and organiza-tional structure: ECD&M and EMS: Case studies: Volvo Buses, Trelleborg AB, Kinnarps AB2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decades, industrial development has brought prosperity and wealth together with triggering unintended ecological degradation. Therefore, a modern society has increasingly demanded companies to take responsibilities for the effects of those business activities that have a negative impact on the environment. Among businesses this has increased the interest towards adopting proactive approaches and practices which aim to reduce these negative impacts. Therefore, the topic of proactive integration of environmental concerns into or-ganizational structure and day-to-day operations is highly relevant and deserves to be investigated.

    The purpose of this thesis is to analyze why and how companies integrate environmental concerns in their business operations and organizational structure as well as to investigate the critical factors that enable such integration. In this thesis, the integrated deductive and inductive research approaches are applied and the qualitative study is selected in order to better understand the motivations, challenges and perceived benefits for companies when proactively integrating environmental concerns into their business operations and organizational framework. Moreover, the multiple cases study of three Swedish manufacturing companies, namely: Volvo Buses, Trelleborg and Kinnarps is selected as the research strategy. By conducting semi-structured in-depth interviews with the environmental managers, there has not been found a generic pattern as for the ways of incorporating environmental concerns into the operational activities and organizational structure. Nevertheless, the evidence of performing environmentally-conscious design and manufacturing (ECD&M) as well as implementing environmental management systems (EMSs) for achieving improvements in material utilization, hazardous waste and emissions reduction, efficient energy consumption and the use of different systems to prevent possible accidents and environmental emergencies have been identified in the studied manufacturing companies.

    The thesis concludes with the essence of main reasons and benefits from adopting the environmental practices and eco-efficient strategies. Furthermore, the empirical results focus on the tools and methodologies supporting this proactive adoption. Thus, while Design for Environment (DFE) has gained much attention in theory, still only some elements of this methodology are being experienced by studied companies. In line with this, material selection process is recognized in all three organizations as a vital component in product design. As for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), although is the most reliable method for outlining the environmental performance of products still its use and implementation is disadvantaged by its complexity, comprehensive scope and time-intensive application. The empirical results also show that the focus on products, unlike manufacturing processes and manufacturing facili-ties, is still neglected to a certain degree. Furthermore, products are still not within the main focus of ISO 14001. Consequently, from an environmental point of view, EMS covering a wider scope would be preferable and a more useful tool when striving for a sustainable development. Finally, some critical factors for a successful integration of the environmental concerns in business practices are also identified.

    Celebrity Entrepreneurship: Communication Effectiveness through Perceived Involvement2007In: International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business, ISSN 1476-1297, E-ISSN 1741-8054, Vol. 4, no 5, p. 505-527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    Increasingly, celebrities appear not only as endorsers for products but are apparently involved in entrepreneurial roles—as initiators, part owners and/or in managerial capacities—in the ventures that market the products they promote. We call this phenomenon Celebrity Entrepreneurship. Whether or not this type of involvement on the part of the celebrity is original and genuine, it may be suspected that celebrity entrepreneurs are more effective communicators than typical celebrity endorsers. This research hypothesizes that such is the case. Further, we hypothesize that this is because celebrity entrepreneurship leads to higher perceptions of a source’s Involvement—an endorser quality hitherto neglected in the marketing communication literature—which in turn affects traditional outcome variables such as Aad (Attitude toward the ad) and Abr (Attitude towards the brand). Based on two experiments using subjects from the relevant product target group (n=88 and n=77) we tested their reactions to advertisements containing the celebrity Cameron Diaz after exposure to one of three experimental conditions: entrepreneur; mere endorser, and no information (control). The results confirm that a) involvement can successfully be operationalized as distinct from variables previously shown to influence communicator effectiveness (trustworthiness, attractiveness and expertise), b) involvement has a positive effect on Aad and Abr over and above the traditional predictors and control variables, and c) the celebrity entrepreneur condition in the experimental manipulation leads to increased perceived involvement.

    Innovation strategies and firm performance2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes the effect of various innovation strategies of firms on their future performance, captured by labour productivity. Using five waves of the Community Innovation Survey in Sweden, we have traced the innovative behaviour of firms over a decade, i.e. from 2002 to 2012. We distinguish between sixteen innovation strategies, which compose of Schumpeterian four types of innovations, i.e. process, product, marketing, and organizational (simple innovation strategies) plus various combinations of these four types (complex innovation strategies). The main findings indicate that those firms that choose and afford to have a complex innovation strategy are better off in terms of their future productivity in compare with both those firms that choose not to innovative (base group) and those firms that choose simple innovation strategies. Moreover, not all types of complex innovation strategies affect the future productivity significantly; rather, there are only few of them. This necessitates a purposeful choice of innovation strategy for firms.

    Analys av informationsbehovet för effektivt arbete med produktion: Examensarbete 2018 i Maskinteknik, Industriell ekonomi och produktionsledning2018Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Research about the kind of information that gives roles in manufacturing companies the ability to make better decisions in their everyday work is a complex area. Much exploration is left to do for the scientists. Much information has been made available in conjunction with the IT era. But it turns out that development is not a par with the knowledge about how companies will utilize it in the best possible way. It can be seen that companies have a gap between what actually happens in terms of investments in information and communication technology and the knowledge about it. The information flow could be used as a competitive advantage if the problem of this gap could be mapped. Where companies can easily target information in the right time, location and form.

    The purpose of this study is to examine the information requirements at the production level in a case study company, Mastec. The report will empirically review the need through a capacity study with subsequent interviews with both case study companies and another company to achieve greater generalization. The capacity study is the proven method Productivity Potential Assessment (PPA) by Peter Almström and Anders Kinnander. The study’s strength is that it measures productivity at several different levels. To estimate a potential, the parameters are compared with Mastec’s own goals and six reference companies from previous PPA studies. After identifying a productivity potential, questions about information needs related to potential areas are addressed. The combination of a qualitative and quantitative study provides the basis for a fundamental case analysis where a critical situation is studied. Generally, the result shows a complex cluster of information needs that have similarities with both operational character and strategic character.

    The result of the first question ended in a matrix that was developed using theory of operational and strategic decisions. The information requirement in the matrix was categorized into information about material, 5S activities, quality, stock status, location, real-time information, instructions, external information and overall picture.

    In further analysis of question one and the following root cause analysis to question two, the critical situation was set to setup time. The information requirement at setup time times can be summarized into a number of points: what is the current plan; which articles are to be run; changes in the plan; measurement personnel are not available; time is spent searching for tools; time is spent looking for fixtures; time is spent searching for documents; low incentives; there are no codes for all stops; the preparation work is inadequate due to difficult planning; silent information; inadequate instructions (to see explanation for these points, see section 4.5).

    A Study of Localisation Economies and the Transport Sector2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of five individual essays, and a common introduction, sharing the general idea that the location of economic activities matters. Four of the essays explicitly introduce a transport sector that has impacts on the location and economic efficiency of other activities. The two first essays are of an empirical nature and the three last are purely theoretical. The empirical essays are based on data related to the county of Jönköping. However, the data originate from two different sources. The first essay builds on data collected through a survey, and the second essay builds on official statistics collected by Statistics Sweden. The first essay deals with the concept of transport quality and the variation of transport quality over different firm-specific characteristics. The second essay brings forward the economic sources of the relative growth of a leading manufacturing region in Sweden, the Gnosjö region. The third essay demonstrates how spatial concentration is influenced and constrained by the cost of transportation. The fourth essay applies standard club theory to show that there are efficiency gains to be made in co-ordinating the use of transportation. The fifth paper shows how two different policies influence economic growth and the concentration of economic activity. The two policies investigated are targeted at transport costs and spillovers of knowledge between regions.
