    The Creation of Nordea Bank: Toward an integrative analytical framework for managing the post-merger Tasks and Knowledge integration process2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Little is currently known about how the realisation of operating synergies and dissemination of available knowhow in the merged firm are managed in post-merger phase. We provide insights on the process of integrating operating synergies by focusing on the critical success factors facilitating integration of the skills of the merged banks. We draw on three perspectives and reconcile them with three dimensions of integration. In-depth interviews were conducted with Nordea bank´s managers from four Nordic countries. Review of extant literatures shows that most mergers fail during the integration process. Having learned from the mistakes of previous mergers, Nordea´s “leading star” for managing its post-merger integration process were expressed as Focus, Speed and Performance from top management. Therefore, a hands-on leadership styles, vision-led thinking, a bias for action, involvement of the entire staff, continuous focus on customers, open and honest communication with employees are critical to success. We conclude that the motive for a merger  have an important impact on the degree of interaction and degree of integration; This study deepens previous findings by, among others, synthesising three theoretical lenses into an integrative model and addresses post-merger issues with a sharp eye towards clear managerial relevance.

    Repatriation readjustment of international managers: an empirical study of HRD interventions2008In: Career Development International, ISSN 1362-0436, E-ISSN 1758-6003, Vol. 13, no 5, p. 456-475Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - With increasing interest in overseas business expansion, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, expatriate management, including repatriation readjustmenst, has become a critical international human resource development (HRD) issue for multinational enterprises (MNEs). This empirical study therefore aims to investigate the use of HRD interventions relating to training and development for effective readjustment of international managers on repatriation. Design/methodology/approach - The data were collected through a field survey conducted on repatriation experience of international managers from more than five countries, who are working in Singapore. Findings - The study provides valuable insights about repatriation training programmes, training contents, programme duration, delivery modes, and providers of effective training programmes. Research limitations/implications - HRD professionals and senior executives of MNEs will benefit from the findings of this study in making decisions on effective design and implementation of training and career development programmes. Practical implications - The findings have significant implications for career development of managers involved in international business operations. Originality/value - This paper discusses readjustment problems of the repatriating managers and suggests how realistic HRD programmes, mainly based on training, can be developed and implemented for retaining international managers. These findings from the dynamic region of Asia will also help in developing appropriate career development programmes.

    Marketing Medical Tourism in Emerging Market2016In: BAM2016 Conference Proceedings, British Academy of Management (BAM) , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to examine marketing of medical tourism (MT) from an emerging markets’ (EMs) perspective. In concrete, it analyzes how service providers develop trust, establish contacts with different actors and adapt to customers and the local environment to carry out the marketing in EM. A qualitative multiple case study approach has been employed. The result shows that trust- and network building is significant in mitigating the unfavorable feature, sustain the instability and legitimacy cause by institutional void. While, adaptation is necessary to customize service and support trust and network building. This study shows how healthcare providers are thriving in a turbulent environment in EM to promote medical service. Thus, it confers marketing science influence the MT industry. The proposed theoretical framework can be a relevant tool to improve understanding MT.

    Customization in medical tourism in the Philippines2018In: International Journal of Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Marketing, ISSN 1750-6123, E-ISSN 1750-6131, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 486-500Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on customization, this paper aims to examine how service providers market health care in emerging markets through medical tourism. Using a qualitative method, researchers conducted 18 semi structured interviews with managers from five health-care providers and supporting organizations in the Philippines. For analysis, data from the service providers are compared. Customization is found to play crucial role in offering health-care services. The customization takes place by adapting to emotional, social and cultural needs; alleviating knowledge asymmetry; and moderating the negative impact of the unfamiliar context experienced by international patients.

    Market and innovation orientation typology: proposition and illustrations2016In: Marketing Intelligence & Planning, ISSN 0263-4503, E-ISSN 1758-8049, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 376-393Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to develop a typology based on the market orientation (MO) and innovation orientation (IO) of firms, and to illustrate the extent to which public housing companies (PHCs) fit into this framework.

    Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative study of 11 PHCs in central Sweden was conducted to classify their positions in the typology. Interviews with semi-structured and open-ended questions were used to collect the data.

    Findings – Four PHC types were identified by combining high and low MO and IO. This study offers insights on the importance of combining MO and IO. The overall findings show that MO and IO combination is not static and must be handled according to context. The MO-IO typology developed could be tested in a quantitative study on a larger sample of public or combined public and private housing companies.

    Research limitations/implications – An empirical study comparing public and private housing companies on the basis of the proposed typology in relation to economic contingencies in the environment would further knowledge in this area.

    Practical implications – The current study gives managers an indication of their position in the typology, which can be used as a tool for improving performance.

    Originality/value – This paper describes PHCs within a proposed typological framework.

    Market and Innovation Orientation: A Typology of Public Housing Companies in Sweden2013In: World Academy Of Science, Engineering And Technology Issue 0076 April 2013, 2013, p. 4-12Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract— The purpose of this paper is to develop a typology based on market orientation (MO) and innovation orientation (IO), and to illustrate to what extent housing companies in Sweden fit within this framework. A qualitative study on 11 public housing companies in the central part of Sweden has been conducted by the help of open and semi-structured questions for data collection. Four public housing company types’ i.e. reactive prospector, proactive prospector, reactive defender and proactive defender have been identified by the combination of MO-IO dimensions. Future research can include other dimensions like entrepreneurship and network to observe how it particularly affects MO. An empirical study can compare public and private housing companies on the basis of MO and IO dimensions. One major contribution of the paper is the proposition of typology which can be used to describe public housing companies and deciding their future course of actions.

     

    Keywords— Customer-led, economy, innovativeness, market orientation.

    Local management response to corporative restructuring: a case study of a company town2008In: Business and Society Review, ISSN 0045-3609, E-ISSN 1467-8594, Vol. 113, no 3, p. 375-402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a case study of top management in a Swedish pulp industry at Skutskär. After decades of proactive response to change, starting in 1976 the pulp industry experienced a rapid and significant restructuring. In 1992, and after a prolonged hold on local investments, came a large-scale investment with major labor reductions, which created a local crisis. The aim of this study is to analyze how top managers of a local business plant perceive and explain their citizenship relationship to the community of the company town during a transition period from 1976 to 2007. Our study shows that too much reliance on top management cost reduction requirements and not caring, or underscoring, local social concerns created gaps and local stakeholder distrust. We discuss how prolonged distrust of the company to bear social responsibility ended up in a broken relationship between the company and the local community. Our case indicates at least two problems that must be handled for successful corporate citizenship. First, the traditional control-oriented management view is too narrow and not adjusted to today's citizenship reality, including how to handle corporate social responsibility. Second, we can see a possibility where the conceived needs on a global corporate level may lead to situations to obscure local needs and consequences.

    CSR implementation challenges in global supply chain: experiences from Bangladesh garments industry2013In: The Second International Conference on Production and Supply Chain Management 2013, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate how suppliers in Bangladesh garment industry independently can take CSR for their own business affairs. Data is collected through interviews of large international buyers, important Bangladesh suppliers and major organizations having influence on the supply chain context. The findings show high supplier dependency on buying company’s code of conduct in CSR implementation. Five main challenges are identified; weak supplier-driven CSR implementation; non-questioning business culture; dilemma consequences of order pressures; weak coherence between the buyers’ implementation strategies and; absence of self-contained supporting organizational structure. This research considers CSR implementation as prerequisite for ensuring efficiency and sustainability in the supply chain of the garment industry in Bangladesh. Based on the challenges it is suggested that suppliers need to improve by: (1) initiatives and measures to build up responsibility to practice CSR; (2) develop a supply chain culture based on CSR orientation and intelligence and (3) establish link with educational institutions to achieve CSR competence for implementation.  The study offers insight on CSR implementation challenges of international suppliers of Bangladesh garments industry and highlights the understanding of the effects of CSR implementation for supply chain sustainability.

    CSR implementation strategy constraints in emerging market supply chain context: Bangladesh garment industry experiences2016In: International Journal of Applied Business and Economic Research, ISSN 0972-7302, Vol. 14, no 13, p. 9041-9062Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The study aims to explore how SC suppliers respond to corporate social responsibility (CSR) implementation strategies and deal with institutional constraints within the global supply chain. Design/Methodology/approach: This research study followed a mixed method approach. A qualitative case study was developed based on data collected through in-depth interviews, observations, workshops and seminar discussions. Findings: Two CSR strategies were identified, together with managerial, organizational, and societal constraints. Both strategies fail due to CSR ignorance and economic constraints of the suppliers. The corporate-driven strategy is constrained by limiting the supplier's margins forcing them to use less responsible subcontractors. The partnership strategy fails as it allows the suppliers to ignore compliance to CSR implementation rules and especially in economically difficult situations. Research limitations/implications: This paper has several limitations. The data illustrate a specific industry and SC companies in a specific country context which makes generalizations difficult. Practical implications: Long-term economic cooperation and negotiation between involved supply chain (SC) parties is prerequisite to improve supplier ability to act independently. This means that the corporate-driven CSR strategy in SC is so far easier to manage but elicit costs for suppliers. Originality/value: This study addresses the difficulties in managing the corporate-driven strategy and the partnership strategy in emerging market business context that traditionally has institutionalized corporate-driven SC control. With focus on two main CSR implementation strategies applied by two case corporations, this article contributes to show how institutional constraints influence on supplier ability in the studied SC context.
