    Management practices and the quality of primary care2019In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using the World Management Survey method, the authors mapped and analysed management quality in Swedish primary care centres. On average, private sector providers were better managed than public providers. Centres with a high overall social deprivation among enrolled patients also tended to have higher management quality. Management quality was positively associated with accessibility (length of waiting times), but not with patient-reported experience.

    IMPACT: The authors explored the use of management practices at the operational (care centre) level in Swedish primary care. The paper relates management quality to provider characteristics (public or private) and to the quality of care. An expansion of private care centres seems to have increased the average level of management quality in Swedish primary care. The findings suggest that suitable applications of management practices, especially in the area of people management, can produce a higher quality of care.

    Great expectations but poor results: financial and social performance of the Toscana Energia merger2012In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 69-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the importance of mergers in the public sector , analysing the case of T oscana Energia—a gas supplier in Italy. T oscana Energia was formed by merging three entities. There was no improvement in financial performance after the merger. Realistic merger benefits include competitive gains and, in this case, a better deal for consumers. P oliticians under pressure to merge should insist on the public sector being the majority owner in utilities. The best merger outcomes are of smaller municipal enterprises.

    Glocalization of accounting standards: observations on neo-institutionalism of IPSAS2019In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 95-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper defines and then observes processes of glocalization surrounding the adoption of International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) for public sector financial reporting. Glocalization can be best understood using sociological institutionalism, because this theory focuses on the retention of identity, and processes of legitimacy, during adaptation (diffusion) of standards. The paper discusses the history of standard-setting for the public sector in New Zealand to explain why this theory has value. IMPACT This paper defines and describes the utility of the concept of glocalization in analysing the implementation of IPSAS, with a New Zealand focus. The value of the paper is in its combination of a jurisdiction-specific experience with an understanding of the broader issues of 'global versus local' and processes of sociological institutionalism. Such studies of IPSAS adoption can offer distinctive perspectives on global processes of isomorphism within neo-institutional theory. This paper explains the advantages of flexible strategies to standard-setters.

    Translating sustainable and smart city strategies into performance measurement systems2018In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 193-202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper shows how sustainable and smart strategies can be implemented in cities and how these strategies influence, and are influenced by, performance measurement systems. Drawing upon the Foucauldian notion of governmentality, the authors present the case of Gothenburg in Sweden, where they interviewed the key actors involved in a new sustainability strategy. Translating strategy into performance measurement systems requires collaboration across organizational boundaries and considerations of financial goals and social and human aspects.

    Assessing the influence of socioeconomic drivers on Italian municipal financial destabilization2014In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 107-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The influence of external factors on local government finances, particularly bankruptcies, is much debated. This paper investigates the relationship between regional socioeconomic features and those Italian municipalities that have been declared ?financially destabilized? (i.e. bankrupt). Statistical evidence confirms that municipalities located in regions with particular socioeconomic features are less exposed to financial destabilization. An early model that attempts to predict local fiscal stress is presented.

    Lean and mean in the civil service: The case of processing in HMRC2011In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 31, no 2, p. 115-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The public sector has been importing private sector methods and practices aimed at generating efficiencies and cost savings. However, the consequences of these changes on the working lives of civil servants are under-researched. This article uses detailed fieldwork to investigate the impact of Lean on labour processes in HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). We argue that Lean has a detrimental effect on employees, their working lives, and the service that is provided to the public. The consequences of Lean on public sector work are highly problematic, which is of serious concern given its progressive impact on other civil service departments in the UK

    Usefulness of consolidated government accounts: a comparative study2018In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 39, no 3, p. 175-185Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This comparative empirical study on consolidated government accounting reforms in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Sweden reveals contextual differences affecting their adoption and usefulness. It can help policymakers, public managers, and academics understand the gap between claims associated with the adoption of accounting technologies and their usefulness, as well as provide insights into dichotomies between their global proliferation and localized adaptations.

    Performance measurement in universities: ambiguities in the use of quality versus quantity in performance indicators2017In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 37, no 4, p. 293-300Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Performance measurement (PM) is now common in Western universities. This is also the case in Finland, where a new funding scheme was implemented to ensure that quality was included in universities' PM. However, this paper shows that the quality indicators in use are, in practice, quantitative. The paper is based on a large survey and has implications for university PM systems in Finland and internationally.

    Consumerism and control: evidence from Swedish central government agencies2009In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 101-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines whether the control practices associated with public sector consumerism, such as devolved performance management and accountability, enhance organizations' responsiveness to customer needs and preferences. The research highlighted the need for trade-offs between resource allocation and customer needs and how this affects rationing of services. This is a serious dilemma as the public sector comes under the dual pressures of the consumerist movement and a tightening funding situation.

    How do politicians shape and use budgets to govern public sector organizations?: A position-practice approach2016In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302, Vol. 36, no 7, p. 491-498Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines politiciansᅵᅵᅵ influence on budgets in governing public sector organizations. Theoretical reasoning is based on the position-practice concept applied in structuration theory. Research took place in a hospital district in Finland from 2009 to 2015. The findings show that politicians set coercive budgetary policies, but there was no direct relationship between budgets and actual medical practices. As a result, the budget was simply a ᅵᅵᅵceremonialᅵᅵᅵ tool of political governance, as medical professionals concentrate on delivering healthcare services.

    Drivers for the voluntary adoption of consolidated financial statements in local governments2019In: Public Money & Management, ISSN 0954-0962, E-ISSN 1467-9302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    IMPACT The study highlights the benefits of a testing period for local government politicians and managers when important accounting reforms, such as implementing consolidated financial statements (CFS), are being introduced. A testing period can enhance knowledge on the accounting standards, as well as improving employees' skills and citizens' perception of local government performance. Central governments are encouraged to provide technical assistance to local governments through training or providing manuals to facilitate the implementation of CFS. Moreover, feedback from the testing period could support the revision of accounting rules and standards.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the extent to which price is the determining factor in the procurement of audit services. In Sweden 72% of municipalites chose audit firms with the lowest bid. Both political competition and competition between audit firms were found to affect whether price was the decisive criterion or not.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the increasing importance of publication metrics in research. Four themes are addressed: the impact of journal metrics on issues like research funding and tenure; the unintended consequences of these metrics; whether the niche domain of public sector accounting journals is threatened by these metrics; and how researchers can best deal with the mania surrounding journal metrics. This article is part of an ongoing and larger research project about the identity shift of public sector accounting researchers due to an increasing importance of publication metrics.
