Abstract [en]

The evidence for associations between area characteristics and entrepreneurship is fairly consistent in most studies. These studies, however, have disregarded the fact that the areas might be constructs that have no effect on the individual differences in entrepreneurship and, furthermore, have conflated entrepreneurship and sole proprietorship, disregarding the impact of area constructs on different forms of business organizations. Therefore, we investigate and quantify, within a multi-level framework, the importance of municipalities and regions for understanding individual differences in entrepreneurship and self employment (defined as sole proprietorship). By using register data comprising the entire Swedish population for 2000-2010, we decompose the variation for the respective form of business organization into three levels: the individual, the municipality and the region. Our results show that about 10% of the total variation in entrepreneurship can be attributed to the municipality and region level. The corresponding numbers for self employment are 3-4%. Our results indicate that regions and municipalities differ markedly in area impact for entrepreneurs compared to self employed. The results from the present study show the importance of taking into account the form of business organization in economic analysis, and they can be used when considering whether it is appropriate to focus on specific municipalities and regions for policy interventions on self-employment.

Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to analyze and contextualize the outcomes of competence development as a restructuring strategy in a company that was significantly affected by the economic recession in 2008. Design/methodology/approach - In the context of restructuring, increased globalization has expanded international competition that in turn has put additional pressure on organizational transformation, restructuring, reorganization and rationalization Findings - The result indicates that the experience of learning, commitment and job satisfaction have decreased between T1 and T2 (no difference regarding self-efficacy Originality value - From this study, the authors can conclude that the outcomes of competence development programs are not easily interpreted. Depending on the purpose of the intervention, the results can be interpreted in different ways. It is important to approach the issue of competence development with a wise degree of skepticism

Abstract [en]

Purpose: In line with the growing emphasis on workplace learning, there has been a tendency to abandon traditional Tayloristic models of work organization in favor of more humanistic, flexible and integrated work systems. This study focusses on facilitators of learning in a company that is based on the principles of Toyota production system (TPS). In this paper, the authors are focussing on one central aspect of the TPS, that is, workplace learning. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the role of empowering leadership, teamwork, innovative climate as facilitators of learning in this specific context. Design/methodology/approach: Questionnaires (focussing on workplace learning, empowering leadership, teamwork and innovative climate) were distributed to 643 factory workers in the company Scania in Sweden. A total of 487 persons answered the questionnaire, which amounted to a response rate of 76 percent. Findings: The result indicates that empowering leadership was the best predictor, followed by teamwork and innovative climate. Originality/value: From this study, the authors can conclude that the already known predictors of learning can also be applied in a TPS setting. The key features in the TPS company constitute a foundation for learning.

Abstract [sv]

Artikeln syftar till att beskriva och analysera överordnade vård- och omsorgschefers berättelser om olika former av yttre organisatorisk kontroll och även att diskutera och analysera konsekvenserna av chefernas sätt att hantera den yttre kontrollen för deras mångfaldsarbete. I artikeln visas hur cheferna hanterar den yttre kontrollen genom att förhandla och att detta innebär att mångfaldsfrågan hamnar på marginalen i deras verksamheter. Tre möjliga orsaker till detta sätt att förhandla diskuteras: professionella identiteter, utvecklad organisationsmoral och pragmatiska handlingar.

Abstract [en]

The dissertation’s research context is organisation, ethnic diversity and healthcare. The focus is on healthcare managers’ relations to the organisational idea of diversity and the problematisation of how ethnicity is constructed by eldercare staff. The dissertation’s research questions are: What kind of day–to–day normality is created by managers and how do they understand and work with the diversity idea? How is ethnicity constructed in organisations and what does ethnicity mean in terms of quality? What is ethnic diversity as an organisational idea and what does diversity management mean in terms of quality? The dissertation has gained inspiration from aspectual and interpretative reflection and ethnography. The methods used include reflexive interviews and fieldwork. The theories that have been made use of are micro– culture, reproducing and producing systems, interpretative ethnicity, diversity as an organisational idea and quality as a socially conditioned value. Managers interpret their daily work through the reproduction of professional values where the diversity idea plays a peripheral role. Diversity issues are not controlled by the managers from a quality perspective. Like the management, staff also interpret ethnicity from an everyday perspective, although in quite a different way and through censoring and self–censoring practices. Ethnicity’s social significance changes: within the staff group it is thin and outside it oscillates between thin and thick. The dissertation illustrates that while managers have difficulty in determining the value of the diversity issue, the staff value ethnic diversity in terms of learning, creativity and the charismatisation of routines. Reasons for this are to be found in the lack of communication between management and staff practices in the different systems.

Abstract [en]

Both public organisations, such as local governments, and private organisations, can be seen as gateways for immigrants into the new country. This paper discusses the manner in which such organisations address fundamental gateway concepts such as empowerment and diversity, and how the interpretations of these affect their actions.
