  • Change of entrepreneurial agenda in a core competence context
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing. - Olney : InderScience Publishers. - 1742-5360. ; 4:2, s. 148-167

    • The newest small firms - the start-ups in general and the international new ventures (INV) in particular - face major difficulties from the beginning. Not only do they need to bring competitively unique products to a new, highly competitive market, but they also must be successful in convincing customers of their products' benefits. This ultimate small firm test is in fact very similar to the criteria that define the core competence concept. Still, core competence matters have historically been delimited to large, preferably diversified companies. In this paper, we apply core competence theory and entrepreneurship theories on a small firm's empirical context. We concentrate on technology focused INVs and on the change, or transformation, these start-ups must complete in order to adopt a more market-oriented focus. Without the transformation, we argue, the small firm will not be able to expand. The purpose of the paper is to explore parts of the processes changed during the transformation and to enhance our understanding of core competence applicability on small companies. We formulate propositions, empirically guided and theoretically anchored, that describe four different components that facilitate the small firm technology-to-market transformation.

  • Business Marketing Intelligence
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Business Marketing Intelligence : Analysis and Tools. - 87-630-0147-0 - 8763001470 ; s. 77-119
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This chapter discusses business marketing intelligence (BMI), an important activity because it links an organization to its external environment and makes it possible for management to develop informed and rational decisions about markets, competitors, and strategy. We first introduce BMI and explain why it is important. We distinguish BMI from marketing research and argue that BMI is much more than traditional marketing research. We then discuss different types of marketing intelligence; continuous and problem related. New technology is continuously changing the nature of BMI. We analyze the state of the art intelligence software, define principles for how to search for information effectively on the Internet and build integrated business intelligence systems on the Intranet. Then we address issues related to BMI system design, benchmarking, and sources of intelligence. The impacts of demand analysis is highlighted, and we explain customer satisfaction analysis, customer requirements analysis, and sales forecasting. We conclude the chapter with discussions about how to organize and manage intelligence efforts.

  • Market intelligence : building strategic insight
  • 2009
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The authors provide an overview of the most important tools and concepts relevant to intelligence analysis for strategic decision making. The book discusses a number of tools and concepts useful to build strategic insights. Their focus is not only on competitors, but also on customers, suppliers and a range of other stakeholders. "Market Intelligence" provides managers with helpful concepts, tools and ideas on market intelligence and analysis. Additionally, it gives the reader some of the analytical tools used to analyze both micro and macro factors in the organization's environment to better predict future outcomes and help decision making. The field of competitive intelligence is studied by a diverse research community. Contributions are made to aid states on a national, regional and local level (Public Intelligence), the military (Military Intelligence), non-profit organizations (NPO Intelligence) and private companies (Private Intelligence). However, these contributions are mostly done in isolation, even though all these fields of study have much in common.The authors build their insight on these various schools as well as practical applications and provide the essential insights to aid management thinking.

  • A longitudinal study integrating population, care and social services data
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Aging Clinical and Experimental Research. - Milano : Kurtis. - 1594-0667. ; 16:2, s. 158-168
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background and aims: A large, national, long-term, longitudinal, multi-purpose study has been launched in Sweden - the Swedish National study on Aging and Care (SNAC). The study involves four research centers collecting data in four different areas of Sweden.Methods: The study consists of two parts: the population part and the care and services part. In the population part, a large, representative panel of elders in different age cohorts is followed over time to record and describe the aging process from different aspects. In the care and services part, a systematic, longitudinal, individually-based collection of data is performed concerning provision of care and services together with functional ability, specific health care problems, and living conditions of the recipients living in the area.Resuits: The data collection in the population part of the SNAC is not yet completed. In the present article, some preliminary results are reported from the care and services part. These pertain to comparisons between the participating areas with respect to the prevalence of disability among those receiving care and social services in their ordinary homes and those receiving care in special accommodation. A comparison is also presented with regard to the amount of home help provided to subjects with a given disability.Conclusions: This project has several advantages. It is expected to generate a rich data base relevant for future research on aging and care and to have a direct impact on the future Swedish system of care and services for the elderly.

  • Depression and exercise in elderly men and women : findings from the Swedish national study on aging and care
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Journal of Aging and Physical Activity. - Champaign, Illinois : Human Kinetics Publishers. - 1063-8652. ; 15:1, s. 41-55
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study investigated the relationship between light and strenuous exercise and depression, as well as gender differences in this relationship, in a representative sample of 860 elderly Swedish suburb-dwelling men and women in age cohorts from 60 to 96 years, drawn from among participants in the Swedish National Aging and Care study. The relationship between depression and self-reported changes in exercise status over time was also examined. Exercise activities were measured with four survey questions, and depression, with the Montgomery Asberg Depression Rating Scale. The inactive elderly had higher depression scores than more active individuals, both in terms of light and strenuous exercise. The continuously active group had lower depression scores than both continuously inactive individuals and individuals reporting a shift from activity to inactivity during the preceding year. Light exercise had a somewhat stronger effect on depression for women.

  • Relationships between physical activity and perceived qualities of life in old age. Results of the SNAC study
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Aging Ment Health. - 1364-6915. ; 13:1, s. 1-8
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objectives: the aim of the present study was to investigate the relationships of different types Quality of life to strenuous and light physical activity in old age. Methods: The Swedish SNAC-Blekinge baseline database, consisting of data on 585 men and 817 women 60 to 96 years of age, was utilized. The independent variables were light and strenuous physical activity. Four dependent variables concerned with various quality of life components were employed (well-being, engagement, emotional support and social anchorage). Age, gender, functional ability and co-morbidity were included as possible confounders. Non-parametric bivariate and multivariate statistical tests were performed. Results: Correlations suggested there to generally be a positive relationship between physical activity and quality of life. Multivariate logistic regression analyses controlling for possible confounders showed light physical activity to increase the odds of experiencing well-being, engagement and social anchorage, whereas strenuous physical activity increased the odds of experiencing engagement and emotional support. Thus, light physical activity and strenuous physical activity differed in their relation to quality of life generally. Conclusions: The results indicate that physical activity has a salutogenic effect by enhancing the quality of life and it can be assumed to be connected to quality of life by generating pleasure and relaxation.

  • The recovery process in major depression : an analysis employing Meleis' transition framework for deeper understanding as a foundation for nursing interventions
  • 2006
  • Ingår i: Advances in Nursing Science. - Philadelphia, USA : Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. - 0161-9268. ; 29:3, s. 245-259
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The number of persons with mental illness is increasing globally; despite this fact, nursing research on research-based interventions to prevent or minimize illness and increase quality of life is sparse. The purpose of this secondary analysis of men and women recovering from major depression (N = 25) was to gain a deeper understanding of the concept of transition in the recovery process associated with major depression as well as to develop and suggest nursing interventions that support the recovery process. The transition framework was useful, as it was describing the transition process as fluid, going back and forth, which was confirmed by the respondents' statements. Transition planning is a feasible way of supporting both the recovery process and health promotion, thus laying the foundations for a good quality of life. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.

  • 20 svenska fallstudier för små och medelstora företag : pedagogik och vetenskaplig metod
  • 2006
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • I boken presenteras den största samling fallstudier över svenska små och mellanstora företag som hittills är gjord. Författarna diskuterar också vad en fallstudie är, hur fallstudier konstrueras och hur de kan användas i undervisning och forskning. De 20 korta fallstudierna beskriver företag som befinner sig i en situation som går att koppla till något av företagsekonomins delområden (organisation, ledarskap, marknadsföring, ekonomistyrning m.m.). Dessa fall kan användas inom en mängd olika ämnesområden och är upplagda enligt anglosaxisk modell. Fallföretagen representerar såväl olika branscher som geografiska områden och fallstudierna bygger på verkliga situationer och problem i företagen. I den teoretiska delen av boken ligger tyngdpunkten på användning av fallstudier som pedagogisk och vetenskaplig metod oavsett fackområde. Vad är det som gör att fallstudier lämpar sig bra för inlärning? Vari består oenigheten beträffande bruket av fallstudier som vetenskaplig metod? Författarna ger också detaljerade beskrivningar av arbetsprocessen med att ta fram fallstudierna. Boken vänder sig till studerande inom ekonomi, statsvetenskap och sociologi samt dem som vill använda sig av fallstudier som metod i sin forskning. Boken kan även vara en inspirationskälla för dem som tänker skriva fallstudier utifrån egen empirisk forskning.

  • Annan publikation (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • As a consequence of the stagnation in the telecom industry at the start of the new millennium many subcontractors found themselves in deep crisis. Numerous Swedish die casting corporations which had focused their production on telecom related products, suffered a severe blow after the mere collapse of this industry. Several firms were declared bankrupt, others were gravely minimized.In the central parts of Sweden, three die casting companies which were located geographically close to each other (Metallteknik Produktion AB i Kulltorp, Gjuteribolaget i Bredaryd AB and Värnamo Pressgjuteri AB) started a co-operation in order to try to overcome the down turn in the mar- ket. The companies later merged and became “ADC of Sweden” (“Associ- ated Die Casters of Sweden”), targeting a new demanding international cli- entele. The new corporation has a joined marketing plan and parts of their operations seem to be working well. At the same time these former rivals, which are now united in a new organisation, have encountered a series of problems which may be related to the fact that they were traditional family firms that used to operate independently.

  • Boosting Innovation and Knowledge through Delocalization : Market Intelligence at Trade Shows
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Problems & Perspectives in Management. - Sumy, Ukraine : Sumy State University and "Business Perspectives" Publishing Company. - 1727-7051. ; 8:3, s. 200-208
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Trade shows have consistently been neglected in marketing research, especially the gathering of market information, what is studied under Market Intelligence and directly related to a company’s Knowledge and Innovation. A major reason is that the marketing discipline traditionally has had a strong focus on customers instead of competitors and influencers. In this article we show how the field of Competitive Intelligence is a useful part of the company’s Integrated Marketing Communications. Based on a qualitative method encompassing a case study and exploratory research we followed, coached and traveled with two different groups of companies to major International Trade shows. Based on the information gathered a division into three areas of Intelligence was useful. These were intelligence about products, the booths and the behavior in the booths. For each group a number of Key Intelligence Topics and a set of specific research methods were identified which can make the Market Intelligence process more efficient. We explain why Exhibits or trade shows have much in common with Event Marketing and could be considered a part of the latter.
