    Managerial barriers to growth in Sweden1999Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the situation when a firm moves from being an entrepreneurially managed firm to a professionally managed firm. A small firm may have a very simple structure, but when the number of employees grow, so will the need to differentiate and specialise the way work is done. During that transformation, when the organisation and the management principals are changed, leading to a temporary slack of control of the firm, a decrease of economic performance is hypothesised.

    Managing external information in manufacturing firms: the impact on innovation performance2005In: The Journal of product innovation management, ISSN 0737-6782, E-ISSN 1540-5885, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 251-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing upon a sample of 206 medium-sized manufacturing firms, this article investigates the extent to which management of external information is associated with innovation performance. The overall purpose of the article is to examine whether or not those organizations that are better at managing external information are also those that are the better innovators. The research strategy used was a survey, and data were collected by means of mail questionnaires (with a 62.4% response rate). A multiple regression analysis was used for hypothesis testing. The results show that scanning the technological sector of the environment was positively associated with innovation performance, while scanning customers, suppliers, and competitors proved to be negatively correlated with innovation performance. Cross-functional integration in the form of collaboration also proved significantly correlated with innovation performance, while interaction showed no such relationship. Further, decision-making based on information from the industry environment correlated significantly with innovation performance. Research and managerial implications of these findings are presented and are discussed.

    The role of market orientation and entrepreneurial orientation for new product development performance in manufacturing firms2007In: Technology Analysis & Strategic Management, ISSN 0953-7325, E-ISSN 1465-3990, Vol. 19, no 6, p. 765-788Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this article is to examine the relationships between two strategic orientations and performance in new product development. The first orientation considered is market orientation; the second one considered is entrepreneurial orientation, which reflects a firm's propensity to innovate, to be proactive, as well as its willingness to take risks. Drawing upon a sample of 224 mid-sized manufacturing firms, multiple regressions with and without interaction terms were used for testing seven hypotheses. The results show that a market orientation and innovativeness were positively related to performance in new product development, while proactiveness and risk taking show no such relationship. The results also show that neither product characteristics nor environmental characteristics moderate these relationships. In terms of implications, our results suggest that contradictory and to some extent paradoxical capabilities are needed to increase performance in new product development, and that the different components of an entrepreneurial orientation do not impact new product development performance equally

    Abstract [en]

    This study is an attempt to improve the understanding of eco-innovations and to generate knowledge that can be used to stimulate their diffusion and adoption. The main objective of this study is to develop a new classification system for eco-innovations. The methodological approach chosen is a case study of 150 winning entries to the Swedish Environmental Innovation Competition. The entries that reached the finals were investigated and classified according to the new classification system into six different types: (1) product care, (2) minor product improvements, (3) major product improvements, (4) functional innovation, (5) System innovation, and (6) Scientific breakthrough. The results show that more than 75% of the eco-innovations are classified as 'product care', 'minor product improvements' and 'major product improvements'; but in order to achieve a breakthrough in the area of sustainability, much more work is needed to achieve 'system innovation' and 'scientific breakthrough'

    Changes in development approaches of technological and work organization and the impact on performance2000Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper analyses the joined data and results of two separate studies together covering the change actions of 49 Swedish manufacturing companies during a ten-year period, 1988-1997. The purpose is to reveal the long-term change patterns of synchronous or non-synchronous change of technology and work organisation. The results are that during the studied ten-year period a lesser percentage of companies pursue synchronous change than non-synchronous. The general change pattern is indicating more focus on change of organisation than on technology, and this tendency has grown stronger in resent years. The results presented in this paper also indicate that synchronously changing companies during 1988-1997 tend to have had greater performance increases during recent years than non-synchronously changing companies.

    Technological and organizational development and its management1999Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The technological- and organisational development 1992-1997, and the corresponding changes of seven internal and four external performance measures of 56 Swedish firms are analysed, as well as the way the change efforts are managed. The general results are that the firms have moved towards higher levels of decentralisation and automation. The internal performance of the firms has improved if firms have upgraded the technology, or both their technology and organisation. Investments in increased automation tend to improve the quality performance of the firms, while the opposite result is associated with the introduction of a more decentralised organisation. The results for the external performance support that higher automation is related to higher quality, but this is at the expense of less flexibility in product change. The managerial implications discussed are if firms should focus on improved technology, organisation or both, and how to manage the change process.

    Product development in SMEs: an overview and tentative results2008In: International Journal of Technology Intelligence and Planning (IJTIP), ISSN 1740-2832, E-ISSN 1740-2840, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 299-325Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Product Development (PD) in Small and Medium-sized Firms (SMEs) is a long-neglected research area, and little cumulative work has been conducted previously. The purpose of this paper is to provide a first overview of the area of PD in SMEs. In doing so, we draw upon a sample of 149 peer-reviewed research papers selected from an initial sample of 5694 papers. The review provides tentative answers to issues such as the analytical and methodological approaches of the papers, which topics or areas of research have been focused on by previous scholars, and what kinds of topics that are well covered.

    The firm's and its customers' view on order-winning criteria1997Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A firm's ability to win orders on the market depends on its competitiveness. A competitive firm wins order on the market, which results in a positive sales development. Orderwinning criteria are those criteria that make a difference to the customer when he decides between qualified offered products. The selling and the buying actors may have the same or different ideas about what constitute these orderwinners, and they may also differ in their evaluation of the competitive strengths of a firm. The selling and buying actors' perceptions of orderwinners and competitive strengths are analysed as the degree of fit between these perceptions. A good fit means that the two actors agree on orderwinning criteria and the firm's competitive strength on this criteria. We expect that a good fit relate to a positive sales performance of the selling firm's product. In the paper we analyse different situation of fit and misfit for the ten product families of four small manufacturing Swedish firms, and how these situation relate to the sales development patterns of the product families. The results reveals that a good fit is related to a stable economic development of sales, while two different situations of misfit may lead to a economic regression or to an expansive development of sales.

    Success factors for improvement and innovation of process technology in process industry2002In: Integrated Manufacturing Systems, ISSN 0957-6061, E-ISSN 1758-583X, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 158-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a study of the development of process technology in the process industry, 25 potential success factors were developed and later ranked in a survey to R&D managers in the European process industry. The results show that success factors for process development and product development are different, but also that success factors for process improvement and process innovation are different. For R&D managers in the process industry, the success factors can be used as a “shopping list” for the development of a company-specific list of success factors for process development. The difference between success factors for process improvement and process innovation indicates that there is a need to better distinguish between process development work of different nature and content.

The results are presented in two parts, of which this is Part 1. As an introduction to this part, a new classification system for success factors in R&D is developed and the final discussion in Part 2 presents a model for company implementation. The empirical results stress the importance of good technology transfer in the process development process. The results can also be seen as a shopping list and a starting point for in-company development of success factors and performance indicators for process development.

A new classification system for success factors in R&D was developed as an introduction in Part 1, and the discussion in this paper presents a model for company implementation. The empirical research results give an emerging picture of a development area, a development process and a type of development behaviour that differ markedly from product development and the product development process. The results can also be seen as a shopping list and a starting point for in-company development of success factors and performance indicators for process development.

    Competence accounting: methods for measuring and valuing key-competencies1999In: Manging Operations Networks, 1999Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Resources within companies are important, and also in some case crucial, for the performance of the companies. Resources can be classified in both tangible assets as well as in intangible assets. The companies' most strategically important resources are probably the intangible resources including competencies (Grant, 1991). When considering individual and organisation competencies in an organisation, methods for measuring and valuing competencies need to pay attention to the link between individual and organisational learning as well as to the risk involved with loosing keycompetencies. The methods investigated in the field of human resource costing and accounting and knowledge management describe and illustrate that the value of human resources decreases and that the companies will loos experiences when employees retire. However, the methods are not describing how the influence of losses of keycompetencies is affecting the companies' performance in the future. The methods used for estimating the losses of key-competencies must be complemented by other methods where also the learning process within companies must be taken into account.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - To analyse how differences in decision-making affected the integration of the R&D functions after Ford's acquisition of Volvo Cars. Design/methodology/approach - The analysis is carried out in two steps. Step one analyses which type of approach Ford employed to integrate Volvo into the company. Step two analyses how R&D decisions are made by both firms and the consequences of found differences in decision-making on the success of the integration process. Findings - Ford's approach to the integration of Volvo Cars follows a symbiosis approach, combining a high need of both organizational autonomy and strategic interdependence. A symbiosis acquisition integration approach demands that the decision-making processes are given special attention. The acquired firm's specific decision-making processes need to remain intact in order to preserve its embedded unique R&D value creation capabilities. The decision-making processes should be kept separate in order to prevent disruption. Originality/value - The paper relates theories about firm acquisition processes and aspects of organization theory to establish a bridge between these research areas.

    Design engineering culture differences: Ford´s acquisition of Volvo Cars2000Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The cultural issues of design engineering are important in the context of any interorganizational collaboration. The objective of this article is to describe and analyze the design engineering decision-making process at Ford Motor Company. It examines the area that concerns culture in the workplace, but does so in the context of how Volvo employees understand it one year after Ford's acquisition of Volvo Cars. It is clear that there are important differences in the way of conducting decisions between the companies, at least as the engineers at Volvo understand it. These differences will have a negatively impact on the speed of the integration process and future ability to co-operate.

    Ett könsperspektiv på ohälsa och yrke1998Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett antal mönster framkommer i förstudien när det gäller nyckelfaktorerna yrke, kön och geografisk lokalisering och dess samband med ohälsa. Det finns ett tydligt mönster när det gäller ohälsans fördelning över yrkeskategorier, vissa yrken återkommer med en hög andel ohälsodrabbade. Även om ohälsans form varierar (långtidssjuka, arbetsskadade, förtidspensionerade) följer yrkestillhörigheten ett mönster. Ett samband kan skönjas såväl mellan de olika formerna av hälsa som mellan ohälsa och yrkestillhörighet totalt. Ohälsan varierar vidare på ett systematiskt sätt mellan män och kvinnor - kvinnor är sjukare och nyttjar sjukvården mer än män, som i sin tur har högre dödlighet. Kvinnor har generellt sett ett högre ohälsotal än män. Det finns även ett återkommande mönster, som inte bara omfattar skillnader mellan könen och den totala ohälsobilden, utan även den partiella ohälsan. Kvinnor är i högre utsträckning partiellt sjukskrivna och partiellt förtidspensionerade än män. Män och kvinnor i otraditionella yrkesroller har klara överrisker att drabbas av ohälsa. Förutom andra individ- och miljörelaterade faktorer har arbetsplatsens könssammansättning identifierats som en faktor att ta hänsyn till när ohälsans variationer ska förstås. Det finns även regionala variationer i ohälsa med systematiska inslag. Norrbotten har det högsta ohälsotalet och den lägsta andelen partiella sjukskrivningar och förtidspensioneringar i riket (vilket precis som på riksnivå i synnerhet gäller kvinnor). Vidare har Norrbotten den kortaste genomsnittliga tid från dess ett sjukfall inleds till en eventuell övergång i förtidspension. Rikets högsta förtidspensionsfrekvens återfinns även i Norrbotten, samtidigt som länet uppvisar en lägre andel långa sjukfall.
