    Sweden: Intergenerational mobility patterns in immigrant and native families2018In: Catching Up? Country Studies on Intergenerational Mobility and Children of Immigrants, OECD Publishing, 2018, p. 121-143Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates the labour market situation of Swedish native-born sons and daughters in immigrant and native families with regard to their parents’ education, as well as intergenerational educational mobility patterns for these families. The latter are compared in order to ascertain whether the roles played by institutions and family background vary across these two groups. Rather than focussing solely on father-son pairs, the chapter looks at all family combinations, including mothers and daughters and mixed couples. Since there can be differences across countries of origin for those families with an immigrant background, all country groups of interest are analysed separately. Transmission patterns are also investigated separately for different household types with regard to parental composition.

    An Analysis on Developing a Common CSR Labeling System in the Fashion Industry2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The negative impact of the fashion industry on both society and environment cannot be ignored, especially in recent years, due to news and reports on the negative impacts of the industry has raised awareness among consumers. Some of the consumers started questioning the fashion companies’ operations and demand for more sustainable supply chains. In order to respond the request coming from consumers’ side, the companies started to regulate their operations and communicate about them. Even though there are many different ways to communicate about sustainability approach, This study is questioning the potential outcomes of developing a common CSR label based on Higg Index 2.0 tool. To answer the research question, existing literature has analyzed from three different perspectives; social and environmental problems led by the industry and raising consumer awareness about negative impact of the industry. After the literature review, CSR communication approaches of the selected companies were analyzed. The second step of the research was, to apply a consumer survey in the Gothenburg Central Station to understand Swedish consumers’ perception. Outcomes of the consumer survey has compared with the existing literature and communication strategies followed by the analyses of selected companies.The company analyzes show that, even though, they are good at about regulating their supply chain with more sustainable approaches, the majority of fashion companies do not communicate about their CSR practices. Consumer survey expose that, consumers are lack of awareness regarding to existed CSR labels. Moreover, even though exist labels focus on only environmental factors or social factors, the consumers expect from labels to cover both areas. The data collected from the study expose that, even the majority of the consumer not completely influenced by the sustainability approach of the companies, there are consumers that influence by the companies CSR approach. Moreover, the lion share of consumers believes that a common labeling system based on Higg Index 2.0 will be helpful guide when they give their purchasing decision. Based on the findings from existed literature -consumer survey and analyze of companiesapproach-, it was observed that companies are lack of effective communication strategies which is a barrier for the consumers to get an action for to purchase more sustainable fashion products. Therefore, developing a common CSR labeling system that will controlled by third party institution such as Sustainable Apparel Coalition will increase the effectiveness of CSR label and influence the consumers response positively.

    IDEA MINING: Can Business Intelligence be an alternativeidea generation method in service companies?2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Enabled by the increased amount of digital data storage, business intelligence (BI) became a powerful  method  to  improve  business  decision  making  since  1990s.  It  yields  competitive advantage for firms and helps solving business problems faster especially in service business. Despite near real time market analysis, customer segmentation or prediction capabilities of BI, its role in stimulating the innovation is not clearly described.

    This research presents methods for generating new service ideas that a company can use, and

    determines the role of business intelligence in today’s innovation ideation process based on an empirical study on biggest four Turkish Telecommunication firms. Among various methods for idea  generation,  business  intelligence  has  not  developed  enough  to  provide  an  alternative ideation method yet. However, it can be a complimentary method which covers drawbacks of other methods.

    Talent management: An illustration through sports2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The word talent is becoming more important nowadays in a world where every-thing is getting globalizing. Along this thesis, the authors take a close look to the definition of talent and the role of the talent management theory. It is also mentioned other topics such as knowledge management and human resources management, and how both are connected to talent management through tal-ent itself. This process is mainly structured in three key elements: To find, develop and retain a talent. During the whole process, the concept of leader-ship and leader will be present. The authors use the world of sports as illus-tration to make the talent management and leadership topics more visible to the reader. Several experts were interviewed from different fields and with their knowledge and experiences, Íñigo and Andreas come to the final conclusion where it can be appreciated how business can learn and beneficiate from sports and vice versa.

    Arbetsmotivation: En korrelation mellan Generation Y:s behov och organisationens behov2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Det har länge varit ett mål för forskare att ta reda på varför individer varierar i sin motivation att arbeta samt förstå hur individuella skillnader samverkar med organisatoriska faktorer att påverka individers tillfredställelse och motivation. Generation Y är den snabbast växande generationen i dagens organisationer och arbetsgivarna står inför den stora utmaningen att rekrytera och behålla dessa unga arbetstagare.

    Syfte: Syftet med arbetet är att förstå vad som motiverar Generation Y att stanna kvar på sin arbetsplats.

    Metod: Vår studie har baserats på en kvalitativ metod där vi använt oss av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Det empiriska materialet består av femton intervjuer med studenter från högskolan i Gävle. Detta bidrog till att vi fick information om vad som motiverar dem till arbete och vilken påverkan organisationens mål och värderingar har på Generation Y:s arbetsinsats.

    Slutsats: Trots att intervjufrågorna till en början var öppna och fokuserade på motivationsbegreppet i allmänhet visade sig mål vara det mest återkommande nyckelordet. Detta tätt följt av utveckling, sociala relationer och feedback. Därigenom stämmer vår studie bra överens med mycket av den tidigare forskning som har gjorts inom ämnet. Vi tror utifrån detta, att mål och värderingar kan hjälpa dagens chefer att tillfredsställa de behov och tillmötesgå de förväntningar Generation Y har på sin kommande arbetsplats och därmed få en arbetsstyrka som är lojal, samt konkurrenskraftig tack vare sin drivkraft att hela tiden utvecklas.

    Essays on Capital Income Taxation in the Corporate and Housing Sectors2003Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of an introduction and four self-contained chapters.

    Chapter I gives a brief introduction to the topic of the thesis and summarizes the main results.

    Chapter II reports an extensive set of calculations of effective marginal tax rates (EMTR) covering the tax legislation in force in Sweden in 1985, 1991 and 1999. The purpose is to determine how taxation influences the profitability of new investments in the corporate and housing sectors. It is shown that the results agree with the popular view that the old (pre-reform) tax system favored investment in owner-occupied housing at the expense of business investment in real capital. Owner-occupied housing was also much favored relative to other forms of housing investment. Turning to the new 1991 tax system, there is a marked reduction in EMTR for all sectors included in the study. Ignoring owner-occupied housing, it is clear that the difference in the tax treatment between corporate assets and other forms of housing investment were small. Moreover, by 1999 the EMTR had increased again for all sectors.

    Chapter III tentatively puts effective tax rates to work, by illustrating their use in measuring the efficiency losses of taxation. As in Chapter II, Chapter III examines the tax systems in force in 1985, 1991 and 1999, and the focus of interest is on the (aggregated) corporate and the (aggregated) housing sectors of the economy. It is shown that the tax distortion to resource allocation between these sectors was negligible in 1985, and even though the tax reform of 1991 implied far-reaching changes in the taxation of capital income, the measured efficiency losses did not change between 1985 and 1991. However, limiting the focus to the tax treatment of investments in widely held corporations and owner-occupied housing, it turns out that the efficiency losses decreased as response to the new tax system in 1991.

    Chapter IV (with Tobias Lindhe and Jan Södersten) analyzes the income splitting rules for closely held corporations (CHC) in the Nordic countries, and determines their impact on the long run cost of capital. We conclude that the Swedish tax rules for CHC offer roughly the same cost of capital as for widely held corporations (WHC) when new investments are financed by retained earnings, while Finnish CHC, in terms of the long run cost of capital, are favored by the tax system compared to WHC. The Norwegian scheme, finally, may or may not cause the cost of capital to be different from that of WHC.

    Chapter V addresses the question of possible tax discrimination between the self-employed, wage earners and the owners of corporations. The analysis demonstrates that the tax rules for sole proprietorships (SP) in the Nordic countries may or may not offer a possibility for income shifting by switching from being an employee to being a self-employed proprietor. The outcome hinges on the special rule chosen by the tax authorities for splitting business income. Compared to corporate firms (closely and widely held) the SP’s cost of capital is lower, and the reason for that is that the SP avoids the two-tier taxation on the corporate form of organization.

    Anställdas motivation till rörlighet på ett industriföretag: en fallstudie på Sandvik SMC2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetskraftens rörlighet är ett centralt begrepp för ett lands ekonomiska utveckling. I Sverige kan man se en stark utvecklingsinriktning mot ökad rörlighet i arbetslivet. Syftet med denna uppsats var att göra en fördjupad studie för att undersöka vilka faktorer som påverkar de anställdas rörlighet på Sandvik SMC i Stockholm. För att genomföra undersökningen använde sig författarna av en fallstudie och kvantitativ undersökningsmetod i form av en enkätundersökning. Uppsatsen utgick från en deduktiv ansats då enkäten och resultatet utformades och tolkades utifrån vald referensram. Referensramen bestod av teorier kring motivation och tidigare forskning angående rörlighet. Resultatet och slutsatsen från studien påvisade att detta företag hade en trögrörlig personal, vilket bl.a. kan bero på de anställdas relativt höga ålder, utbildningsnivå etc. De faktorer som skulle kunna få de anställda att byta arbetsgivare visade sig vara lön, stimulerande arbetsuppgifter, eget ansvar för arbetssituationen och genomförandet, möjligheter till personlig utveckling samt varierande och självständiga arbetsuppgifter.

    Acquiring once, acquiring twice: Lessons learned from repeated acquisitions of innovative firms2011In: International Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1363-9196, E-ISSN 1757-5877, Vol. 15, no 6, p. 1243-1269Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and discusses learning in repeated acquisitions of innovative firms. Researchers have pointed to how companies may improve performance through conducting repeated acquisitions, while they have not previously focused on repeated acquisitions of innovative firms. Findings of this present study are summarised in five learnings: forming a professional organisation that deals with acquisitions; acquiring present, ready-for-market innovations rather than innovative capabilities; acquiring complementary rather than diverse innovations; keeping the innovator and disbanding from him/her; and the slow process of integration. The findings indicate risk reductions and decreased diversification foci in later acquisitions. They also pinpoint learning on how to handle acquisitions, not just knowledge related to the acquired party. The paper contributes to research on acquisitions of innovative firms through discussing performance improvements and what expectations to place on acquisitions. It also contributes to the learning literature through providing a case illustration on a company that changed its acquisition strategy based on knowledge accumulated through previous acquisitions.

    Acquisitions and open innovation: A literature review and extension2016In: Mergers and acquisitions, entrepreneurship and innovation / [ed] Yaakov Weber, Shlomo Tarba, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2016, p. 31-58Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Researchers have shown increased interest in open innovation – that is, the inflow and outflow of ideas, or the collaborative efforts of innovating – while previous research on acquisitions of innovative firms has foremost focused on the inflow only. Open innovation, however, introduces several new challenges related to acquisitions of such firms, not the least related to intellectual property rights and innovative skills that may be distributed among several parties. This paper explores what issues the literature on open innovation and acquisitions deals with related to acquisitions in open innovation environments.

    A systematic literature review is conducted to achieve the purpose of the paper. Two main questions are addressed. First, how can acquisitions be understood in relation to open innovation? Second, what does the open innovation literature say on matters of distributed innovations in relation to acquisitions?

    The paper concludes that there is a quite limited amount of research concerning itself with open innovation and acquisitions combined. Furthermore, acquisitions are for the most part seen as a means to reach innovation in transaction-based transfers between parties.

    With acquisitions of innovative firms, in general, being seen as an important means to reach new ideas, while open innovation is on the rise, the juxtaposing of these phenomena would be of high practical and theoretical relevance to study further.

    Competence integration in creative processes2013In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 42, no 1, p. 113-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on creativity focuses extensively on it as a personal skill or discusses how an organization can contribute to a creative environment for its staff. Rather than referring to the organization as the environment, this paper concerns interorganizational and intraorganizational interaction between different creative individuals who together shape the creative process and output. Specifically, the paper focuses on the integration of new competences into present structures, thereby emphasizing competences in use in creative processes. Two case studies from the advertising sector illustrate the integration of competences obtained through interorganizational interaction and the hiring/development of staff. The paper concludes that the integration of new competence is path dependent. As a new competence is added, the creative process becomes increasingly complex and marked by representation rather than participation in creative processes. An overlap between competences is necessary if they are to add to the output. This paper contributes to research on creativity at interorganizational and intraorganizational levels through exploring differences between competences per se and competences in use in regard to the integration of competence in creative processes. It also contributes to research on advertising through its depiction of competence integration among advertising agencies.

    Corporate divorce: Interconnecting disrupted and fading changes2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and discusses changes oninter-organizational and intra-organizational levels of corporate divorce. Corporate divorce refers to the separation of previous merged companies. The paper illustrates changes following a corporate divorce through a single case study. The changes are classified into disrupted or fading ones to illustrate whether they are sudden or describe ever decreasing involvement. Five different changes are found in the case: fading production, disrupted relationships with wholesalers on one market, while fading on another, and staff changes representing both disruptedchanges and fading ones. The changes are connected in a pattern that indicates how fading changes may cause new fading ones, or disrupted ones, and how disrupted changes may lead to fading or disrupted changes on levels that interconnect inter-organizational changes with intra-organizational ones. While the companies are separated back to the units as prior to the merger, the reversal does not describe them returning to their previous forms, hence indicating that a merger also reshapes the individual companies in a lasting way. The paper contributes to research in its discussion on the interconnectivity of inter-organizational and intra-organizational changes, and to literature on organizational decline, divestment and dissolution through pointing to the consequences of a separation of firms.

    Customer relationship challenges following international acquisitions2014In: International Marketing Review, ISSN 0265-1335, E-ISSN 1758-6763, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 259-282Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: An important task following international acquisitions is to coordinate customer relationships; that is, to organise customer interfaces and possibly establish new relationships between customers and the acquirer/the acquired party. Yet, such coordination may prove to be problematic, not the least since customers react to acquisitions. The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss customer relationship coordination challenges following international acquisitions. Focus is placed on business-to-business customers in the country of the acquired party.

    Design/methodology/approach: The paper is based on three case studies representing overlapping customers, customers of an acquired party new to the acquirer, and customers new to the acquired party. Non-standardised, face-to-face interviews were the main data source, and were complemented with secondary data such as newspaper items and annual reports.

    Findings: Three main challenges are identified: internal competition and cannibalisation; customers not being interested in the new party; and the acquired party demonstrating its independence through customers.

    Practical implications: Managerially, any coordination of customer relationships needs to be weighted towards risks for customer losses. It is important to maintain ties to customers – sales and maintenance staff, the product/service, etc. – if customers are to continue with the firm. It is also important that sales and maintenance staff see the benefits of the acquisition. Originality/value – While international acquisitions are a frequent means to reach new markets and customers, the problems of coordinating customer relationships following them have not been previously researched. Theoretically, the paper contributes to research through categorising and contextually explaining customer relationship coordination challenges in international acquisitions.

    Customer roles in innovations2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss and classify the roles of customers in innovations. In literature on innovations, customers have been increasingly emphasised as a source for innovations and also in how they help developing ideas in their early phases. This paper exemplifies various customer roles in innovations through three case studies. These describe the customer as initiator, as co-producer and as central party for business development. Through using role theory to discuss customers in innovations, it becomes explicit how customers may act their traditional roles, add roles or transfer to new roles beyond the scope of being a customer. Furthermore, the paper shows that customer roles change during the innovation process, from added or transferred roles in early phases to more traditional ones i later phases of the innovation process.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss and classify the roles of customers in innovations. In literature on innovations, customers have been increasingly emphasised as a source for innovations and also in how they help develop ideas in their early phases. This paper exemplifies various customer roles in innovations through three case studies. These describe the customer as initiator, as co-producer and as inspiration for business development. Through using role theory to discuss customers in innovations, it becomes explicit how customers may play their traditional roles, add roles or transfer to new roles beyond the scope of being a customer. Furthermore, the paper shows that customer roles change during the innovation process from added or transferred towards more traditional ones.

    Customer roles in mergers and acquisitions: A systematic literature review2013In: Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions: Volume 12 Customer Roles in Mergers and Acquisitions: A Systematic Literature Review / [ed] Sydney Finkelstein and Cary Cooper, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2013, Vol. 12, p. 59-74Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Customers are important stakeholders for any company; yet, they seem not to be widely discussed in merger and acquisition research. This chapter synthesizes the current body of research on customers in mergers and acquisitions through presenting a systematic literature review. The chapter is based on a systematic literature review resulting from a search in EBSCO Host for any research item that refers to “customer” and “consolidation or merger of corporation.” All articles were coded to specify how customers are described, with a focus on whether customers are expected to affect and/or be affected by the merger or acquisition. Articles were compared with regard to their year of issue and research disciplines of publishing journals. The review indicates how customers continue to be discussed only to limited extent. The customer roles array from them as an acquirable customer base to customers as actors, whose activities become the very reason to merge or acquire. Literature also refers to them as victims and affected by the merger or acquisition, and reacting parties. In addition to the description of welfare transfer from consumers to acquirers in law and economics studies, the different ways of referring to customers extend beyond specific research disciplines. The literature review indicates more multifaceted ways of describing customers in recent research. No systematic literature review on customers in merger and acquisition literature has previously been conducted. The comparison of research disciplines, years of issue, and customer roles provides new insights into developments in the merger and acquisition field of research.

    Customers affecting M&A integration2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to describe what roles customers play in merger and acquisition (M&A) integration. Based on studies of eight M&As, it is concluded that customers may (i) limit integration intentions, (ii) be reasons for pre-integration reconsiderations, (iii) be used as an argument against integration, (iv) not act according to integration intentions, and (v) actively work against integration. Customers’ actual activities, but also how the M&A parties believe that customers will act, impact the degree of integration. The paper contributes to research on M&A integration through pointing at how customers impact integration realisation. The paper further contributes to research on M&As according to the network approach through highlighting how an M&A is not merely a response or trigger to change, but an embedded event where actions, beliefs and mutuality impact integration realisation.

    Eroding business relationships: The serpentine metaphor2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on business relationship dissolution as the consequence of several subsequent incidents. Previous dissolution research has described single incidents and the present state of the relationship as decisive for relationship ending. This paper instead describes the “state” of the relationship as dynamically affected by previous incidents. These incidents may in themselves not be severe enough for the relationship to dissolve, but impact future dissolution decisions and together with later, interconnected incidents finally end up in the dissolution of the business relationship. The paper uses the serpentine metaphor of erosion to illustrate how several incidentsamplify one another to eventually cause the relationship to end. Empirically, this is illustrated by how customers to a repeatedly acquired company experience incidents that made them increasingly questioning to the relationship. The paper contributes to research on business relationship dynamics through its focus on repeated incidents leading to dissolution, and through pointing to how organisational memory may make certain incidents look more severe based on how they repeat previous incidents.

    How innovation impacts artistic creativity: Managing innovation in the advertising sector2016In: International Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1363-9196, E-ISSN 1757-5877, Vol. 20, no 4, article id UNSP 1640005Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and discusses how innovation impacts creativity in the advertising sector. It points to the double meaning of creativity - as innovativeness and as artistic skills - and indicates a tension between the two. Empirical illustrations consist of two case studies from the advertising sector. These point to how innovations (in terms of adaptation of new technology) negatively impact artistic creativity. Contextual factors creating a need for new technology did have an impact, and meant that companies became increasingly competitive and roles became unclear. On the company level, innovation caused knowledge gaps, increased formalization, and expanded the division of work. Contribution is made to research on the management of creativity by suggesting how innovation impacts artistic creativity. Furthermore, the discussion on company level creativity contributes to research on the advertising sector, since the literature has foremost discussed creative processes of individual campaigns.

    Identity in collaboration2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper targets the issue of multi-identities of companies in collaboration. Companies may participate in collaboration for various reasons and may also perceive the collaboration in different ways. What is more; companies in collaboration may to various extents regard themselves as, and be regarded as, individual companies or as part of the collaboration. Their views may in turn be reflected in how business partners of the collaborating companies perceive the collaboration. This paper builds on various actors’ perception of companies in collaboration. The paper uses the identity concept to capture the multi-identities of companies in collaboration. The purpose of the paper is to describe and discuss various actors’ perception in multi-identity settings. Research method: The paper is built on a case study describing three levels of identity: a company level, the level of a collaboration taking the form of a joint venture, and a contractual collaboration. These are in turn described from involved parties’ and their business partners’ perspectives. Research findings: The paper shows that pre-collaboration history greatly reflects the identity ascribed to the companies. This was the case both for the companies in the collaboration and their business partners’ perceptions. The more structured the collaboration, the more probable that a separate collaboration identity was established. A collaboration based on contracts merely meant that the company’s identity was affected by connections to collaboration parties, while a separate identity was not established. Main contribution: The paper contributes to literature on corporate identity through discussing them in relation to collaboration. It also contributes to research on perception in business relationships through pointing at differences in perception between parties, where this paper connects this to actor and relationship history along with the collaboration structure.

    Lessons learnt from repeated acquisitions2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and discusses learning in repeated acquisitions of innovative firms. Researchers have pointed to how companies may improve performance through conducting repeated acquisitions, while they have not previously focused on repeated acquisitions of innovative firms. Findings of this present study are summarised in five learning: forming a professional organisation that deals with acquisitions, acquiring present innovations rather than innovative capabilities, acquiring ready-for-market innovations, keeping the innovator and disbanding from him/her, and the slow process of integration. These all relate to decreasing risks, while also decreasing expectations on acquisitions' capacity of providing new business directions. The paper contributes to research on acquisitions of innovative firms through discussing performance improvements and what expectations to place on acquisitions. It also contributes to the learning literature through providing a case illustration on a company that changed its acquisition strategy based on knowledge accumulated through previous ones.

    Let’s talk about innovation: Is there a hidden potential of knowledge exchange between open innovation and IMP?2016In: The IMP Journal, ISSN 2059-1403, E-ISSN 0809-7259, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 540-560Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: IMP researchers have shown interest in how innovations result from interaction among companies, while, and in parallel, there has been an increased focus on open innovation (OI) during the past decade. OI depicts how companies source, spin-out, and collaborate on innovation. This paper describes and discusses whether and how IMP and OI researchers acknowledge and build on each other’s work; and whether and how ideas provided by IMP and OI, respectively, create a fit to expand the exchange of knowledge between IMP and OI.

    Design/methodology/approach: The paper is based on a citation analysis focussing on whether the OI literature refers to IMP research, and whether or not the IMP literature refers to OI research. The paper also compares OI and IMP to discover potentials for knowledge exchange between them through discussing similarities, complementarities, and contradictions.

    Findings: The paper points out that while IMP researchers have started to show interest in OI, OI research does not refer to IMP. As such, OI research remains more company-centric in its discussions. IMP provides tools and models to capture the OI phenomenon specifically related to collaborative OI, while OI offers interesting thought for the capture of transaction-based innovation processes and their management.

    Originality/value: The paper contributes to previous research through linking together OI and IMP research. This is important for several reasons, including the ability to enhance knowledge in each domain, critically discuss and relate various research domains and their underpinnings, and expand ideas developed in one research domain to another.
