    Embracing the unplanned: Organizational ambidexterity within manufacturing SMEs2019In: Academy of Management Proceedings, Academy of Management , 2019, article id 14906Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizational Ambidexterity (OA)–the ability to simultaneously pursue exploration and exploitation–is increasingly being advocated as a way to gain competitive advantage. Most of the work on OA has focused on large, multi-divisional organizations, resulting in frameworks and prescriptions that have little utility for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). With this in mind, we report on the first year of an exploratory, quasi-experimental study of ambidexterity within six small-to-medium manufacturing enterprises in Sweden. The research is characterized by an emic, ‘invented here’ approach, where companies closely examine their current exploration and exploitation practices, use their findings to formulate more advanced OA approaches uniquely suited to their values and circumstances, and iteratively apply and refine these over a four year period. It appears that the construct of ‘unplanned’ and associated sub-constructs such as ‘disturbance, crashes, and interruption’ could be an important key to framing and improving OA within these SMEs and perhaps more generally.

    Drivers and barriers of reshoring in the Swedish manufacturing industry2018In: World Review of Intermodal Transportation Research (WRITR), ISSN 1749-4729, E-ISSN 1749-4737, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 195-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore reshoring drivers and barriers in the Swedish manufacturing industry. The research is based on case research including five case companies from the Swedish manufacturing industry with experience of manufacturing reshoring. The empirical findings are compared to the existing literature to identify any potential gaps between the existing literature and the Swedish manufacturing context. The findings suggest that quality related issues, an increased degree of automation, and improved cost performance at the home base are the strongest reshoring drivers for Swedish manufacturing companies. The identified drivers and barriers are transferable and have the potential to be building blocks for researchers and practitioners to better understand the reshoring phenomena. The findings also show that further research should focus on reshoring drivers and barriers in relation to specific reshoring characteristics (e.g., ownership, scale of production being reshored, and position in the supply chain).

    Reshoring drivers and barriers in the Swedish manufacturing industry2018In: Journal of Global Operations and Strategic Sourcing, ISSN 2398-5364, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 174-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this study is to explore reshoring drivers and barriers from a Swedish manufacturing perspective.

    Design/methodology/approach

    This paper is a case study, including four Swedish manufacturing companies, with focus on drivers and barriers from the context of the Swedish manufacturing industry. A literature review of previously established drivers and barriers is used to map out the empirical findings and thereby identify potential gaps between the current body of literature and drivers and barriers from a Swedish manufacturing context.

    Findings

    The findings of the study suggest that quality issues continue to be one of the strongest reshoring drivers. Except for product quality, quality is also connected to host country’s infrastructure, communication and service. The supply chain perspective is a source of several drivers and is identified as a perspective often overlooked in offshoring decisions. Barriers related to firm specifics were more elaborately discussed by the companies, especially concerning calculation of location decision and the need to invest in resources, which allows for a higher level of capacity at the home country facility.

    Research limitations/implications

    The study develops a structured table of reshoring drivers and barriers which can serve as a base for future research. Future research on the calculation of location decisions is deemed as a crucial step to further understand reshoring and aid companies in the decision-making process.

    Practical implications

    The drivers and barriers identified in the study can give practitioners insight into reshoring from the perspective of the Swedish manufacturing industry and thus aid in future manufacturing location decisions. The table of drivers and barriers can also be important to understand how Sweden can strengthen its competitive advantage and motivate more companies to reshore manufacturing.

    Originality/value

    This is one of only few papers from the Nordic countries and also one of few case studies examining reshoring in manufacturing companies.

    Kapacitetsdimensionering: 14 företags investeringsstrategier och planeringsstrategier2016In: Proceedings of the Plan Research Conference, Växjö, 19-20 oktober, 2016., Plan , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Metodstödet för kapacitetsdimensionering är i dagsläget svagt, trots att det är en viktig utmaning i de flesta typer av verksamheter. Hur en kapacitetsnivå ska fastställas kommer in i flera sammanhang såsom tillverka-/köpabeslut, maskin-investering, planering och styrning samt bemanning. Denna studie är utformad för att skapa en bättre förståelse för hur industriella verksamheter arbetar med kapacitetsdimensionering i dagsläget, samt vilka faktorer och utmaningar som påverkar och är centrala i beslutsprocessen. Det har visat sig att kapacitetsdimensioneringen har interna såväl som externa påverkansfaktorer och utmaningar. I denna studie identifieras budget, investeringskostnader, konkurrensförmåga, ledningsbeslut samt grad av komplexitet och integration i försörjningskedjan som centrala påverkansfaktorer. Vidare identifieras prognoser, kommunikation, suboptimering samt bristande systemsupport i beslutsfattandet som utmaningar i beslutsprocessen.

    Abstract [en]

    To be competitive, it is important for companies to create a breeding ground for innovation without jeopardizing productivity. The challenge posed by industrial companies and the innovation research community is how to promote innovation while achieving efficient execution. The ability to balance execution and innovation is referred to as organizational ambidexterity (OA), which includes several dimensions, concepts and approaches where a central task can be identified. The purpose of this paper is to investigate what consequences result from different dimensions of a task in relation to the types of its actions, and their effects on OA. The focus of the task is firstly investigated, followed by the development of nine scenarios via combining the designers’ and the performers’ perspectives of the task. A brief analysis of the scenarios indicates that there is no single optimal scenario; rather, the scenarios represent different states that are appropriate for certain conditions, and dynamic adaptation should be encouraged in relation to the changing conditions. This type of dynamics is particularly expected to prevail in small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) because the roles that are responsible for tasks in these organizations are less specialized. Therefore, SMEs must define tasks that include both explorative and exploitative parts, either simultaneously or sequentially, to stimulate employees to work ambidextrously and thereby develop the concept of task-based ambidexterity.

    Motiv till återflyttning av produktion till Sverige2016In: Proceedings of the Plan Research Conference, Växjö, 19-20 oktober, 2016., Plan , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    De senaste åren har en ny inriktning börjat växa fram där företag ser behov av att ha produktion och/eller leverantörer närmare kunden. Återflyttning av produktion (reshoring) har därför fått ökad uppmärksamhet. Syftet med den här studien är att identifiera motiv till återflyttning av produktion till Sverige. Studien har genomförts i två steg. Först genomfördes en litteraturstudie för att identifiera vilka motiv som beskrivs i litteraturen. Därefter genomfördes en fallstudie för att identifiera vilka motiv som finns i en svensk kontext. Studien påvisar att en majoritet av motiven till reshoring, som beskrivs i litteraturen, ä raktuella i en svensk kontext. Utav de 38 motiv som identifierats i litteraturen har 21 återfunnits i fallstudien. Utöver att bekräfta flera av motiven till reshoring från litteraturen har den här studien även påvisat fem nya motiv. Fallföretagens främsta motiv till att reshora varierar, vilket tyder på att det finns kontextuella faktorer att beakta.
