Abstract [en]

Management by belief systems is common among Swedish companies’, however, many companies find it difficult to implement values. A successful implementation is critical for the values to get the desired effect, which is to control the employees to work in a certain way and/or toward a given objective. For an implementation to be successful, it requires an institutionalization of values which is done by a social construction of the values through the sensemaking process.The purpose of this study is to create an understanding of companies’ institutionalization of values. This by: describing how companies’ social construct the implementation of values, identify and analyze the implementation strategies for the belief systems and develop a model for implementation of management by belief systems.The study was conducted using interviews, and the result indicates that the use of seven implementation tools in a combination is seen as a successful implementation strategy for the management by belief systems. The purpose of the implementation tools is to facilitate employees' sensemaking process through the social construction of meaning with and understanding of values institutionalization. This meaning with and understanding of the values is created by an implementation strategy containing implementation tools with different degrees of interaction.
