Abstract [en]

The increased competition on today ́s market means that companies have to be innovative increasingly. With innovation comes a certain ambiguity and uncertainty, hence risk is associated with innovation. Finding a balance between innovation management and risk management are of utmost importance in order for companies to create a future. There is also a complexity for business leaders in balancing control and freedom to the creative individual, who is seen as the basis for innovation. The purpose of the study was to create a greater understanding of how innovative companies work to survive on the market. We did this by describing how a company in the automotive industry balances innovation management and risk management. We also wanted to analyze how an innovative company with the help of management control system handles the freedom and control that are the basis for innovation management and risk management. Through a qualitative study, we interviewed six actors with leading positions. Our theoretical framework was based on topics such as innovation, management and risk within innovation. Study results show that leaders see freedom as a key factor for innovation, it also shows that the different phases of innovation process should determine the degree of freedom. Our suggestion for further research is a comparative study between innovative companies and also around the area of risk management with specification of business risks.
