Good Nordic management practices: State of the art
Responsible organisation
2015 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The project identified good Nordic management practices by analysing Nordic research on management, working conditions, and productivity. The project identified 2760 publications combining these topics and analysed in detail 38 core publications combining all three topics. The main findings were:

1. Nordic research that combine all three topics is limited in extend but broad in content and therefore fragmented

2. Values related to cooperation and participation permeated the publications, which sets them apart from EU and US publications.

3. The core publications identified positive relations between management practices, working conditions and workplace performance

4. Positive management practices are characterised by dialogue and cooperation between managers and subordinates.

The research was conducted in 2012-2014 at Aalborg University, SINTEF, VTT, and Karlstad University.
