    Service Penetration by persons with severe mental illness: How should it be measured?2002In: Journal of Behavioral Health Services & Research, ISSN 1094-3412, E-ISSN 1556-3308, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 198-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As performance indicators and outcomes measures become essential parts of doing business, providers of mental health services are developing and using a number of access measures. One that is being used with increasing frequency is service penetration. However, the lack of standard methods for calculating and reporting service penetration has made the comparison of penetration rates cross studies difficult. This article discusses the conceptualization and operationalization of service penetration. In addition, it presents an exploratory study of service penetration using data from the same persons using very different data sources; these data were collected during an evaluation of a Medicaid managed care system in Florida. The article offers recommendations for the use and reporting of service penetration rates.

    Enhancing Sustainable Quality Culture2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2015, a project was initiated to explore how quality can be enhanced in Swedish businesses by developing an internal coaching process to support value-based leadership development. The three–year project, financed by The Knowledge Foundation, is a research and development partnership consisting of three Swedish manufacturing companies and Mid Sweden University. Results presented in the poster address both the process and outcomes from this project.

    Purpose

    To present the results in changes in a company's value-base two years into a project with the purpose to explore how quality can be enhanced when a value-based leadership is integrated with sustainable practices.

    Method:

    A number of activities were completed in the company. A survey was designed to measure SQD values as an indicator for value based leadership. The survey were administered both at the start of the project and then again one year later to measure changes in leadership and values. The results from the survey were first analyzed using SPSS (Cronbach Alpha and T-test) and then in relation to completed activities. This was done by the research team together with management team in the company.

    Results:

    The results will be the presentation of completed activities within the company as well as results from the two measurements shows that the mean of the measured values are higher in the second measurement when it comes to the whole factory. When it comes to the managers it is the opposite regarding how they look at their role when it comes to the values: Leadership commitment and Participation of everybody.

    Conclusions so far:

    • Measuring soft aspects helps to focus on culture and values.
    • The wording of the statements can affect culture.
    • Talking about leadership in connection to an organizations unique context initiates new dialog forms, topics, and gives the leaders a “leadership language”.
    • Focusing on positive aspects of leadership creates energy and a solution focused climate.
    • Statistically significant results can be shown after such a short period as one year.
    • Increased pride in the team and the work-place!
    • Further investigate correlations between factors.

    Capturing Value-based leadership in Practice:: Insights from developing and applying an AI-interview guide2017In: Challenges and Opportunities of Quality in the 4th Industrial Revolution: On quality and service sciences ICQSS 2017 / [ed] Dahlgaard-Park, Su Mi and Dahlgaard, Jens J., 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    One of the most critical aspects for building quality and innovation in organizations is the role of values. Performance suffers when organizations fail to prioritize values. A challenge for many leaders is to understand deep-rooted values together with what they are and how they are developed. These deep-rooted values are reflected in the behaviors, language and signs occurring in the organization and can be seen as the organizations culture. When a culture is shaped, leadership is central and the managers in the organization are vital. Managers in an organization affect the predominating culture through their behaviors and approach to their co-workers. This make it interesting to try to find out underlying values held by managers striving for good leadership and performance. Underlying values can be unconscious and taken for granted, and thereby hard to ask about.  By using an interview guide inspired by Appreciative Inquiry (AI) (an approach based on generativity and positivity), underlying values and the leadership used by top managers can be discovered.

     

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss the results from the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) inspired interviews to explore the underlying values held by top manager and to identify soft aspects of leadership.

     

    Methodology/approach – Top managers were interviewed as a part of a research project with the aim to support the development of value-based leadership that integrates company values, organizational culture, customer needs and sustainable development. A structured interview guide, inspired by AI, was developed and used to pinpoint their motivation and vision of a good organization in order to understand the values the leaders had and to identify soft aspects of leadership.  The interviews were analyzed in workshops with the whole research group and structured and visualized through affinity chart.

     

    Findings – The results show underlying values held by top managers and identified soft aspects of leadership.

     

    Practical implications – The presented interview guide can be used to identify the top managers underlying values and the presented results from the interviews can be used to inspire other leaders to develop their leadership in their striving of good leadership and effective organizations.

    Collection of baseline data – expanding the scope2016In: EurOMA 2016 - Interactions, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For leaders to successfully meet the complexity of businesses today, many argue the need to design a performance measurement system that integrates hard data outcomes with soft measures found in organizational culture including values, norms, and behaviors. The purpose of this paper is to present an approach to collecting baseline data that captures the soft dimensions of organizational culture with system thinking as a guiding theory. The results present an approach for measuring the soft dimensions of organizational culture with description of methods, the type of data and what level of organizational culture they measure.

    Utbildningsvetenskap: Globalisering, kunskapssamhället och kvalitet.: Symposium: Vad är ut/bildningsvetenskap?, Lärarhögskolan i Stockholm, oktober 20042004Conference paper (Other scientific)
    Abstract [sv]

    Centrala ord i den aktuella utbildningsdiskussionen är kunskapssamhälle, globalisering och kvalitet. Kunskap lyfts ofta fram som ett centralt begrepp för att beskriva dagens samhälle. Det antas att tillgång och användande av kunskap idag är viktigare än traditionell produktion av varor. Detta äger rum i en tid som kännetecknas av ökad globalisering med en hårdnande konkurrens på en internationell marknad. Denna omställning förutsätts kräva att ett lands utbildningspolitik gör det möjligt för befolkningen att delta i ett livslångt lärande av hög kvalitet. En viktig uppgift för de som undervisar och forskar inom utbildningsvetenskap och närliggande ämnen är att undersöka i vilken utsträckning som de tankegångar som kort skissats ovan påverkat den faktiska utbildning som bedrivs. En sådan undersökning möjliggör en vidare diskussion om vilka förändringar som kan väntas i skolan och vilka förändringar som kan behövas. Paperet utgår ifrån en genomgång av aktuella dokument från främst EU och OECD för att diskutera varför kunskapssamhälle, globalisering och kvalitet kan anses vara centrala begrepp inom den utbildningspolitiska diskussionen och vilka implikationer detta kan få både för utbildningspolitik och utbildningsvetenskap. I detta sammanhang skissas också ett projekt som institutionen för utbildningsvetenskap vid Mitthögskolan planerar.

    Continuous Improvement of Leadership: Evaluation of peer-coaching experiments2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates continuous improvement of leadership with the aid of coaching and specifically peer-coaching as a model for leadership improvement. The paper is based on the idea of experimental learning both as a tool to motivate, educate and inspire leaders in two studied organizations. Learning-by-doing along with reflection has formed the basis for leadership improvement and leadership awareness in this study. The concept of Developing- by-doing have been used to help leaders design the foundation of an organizational specific coaching model.

    Research On Toyota Kata? Proposing A Future Research Agenda For The Emerging Practice2016In: EurOMA Conference Proceedings: Interactions 2016, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the bestselling book “Toyota Kata” was first published in 2009 the practices of the Toyota Kata has spread quickly among practitioners and consultants all over the world. However, the number of academic papers and studies concerning Toyota Kata occurs as remarkably sparse. Based on the apparent gap, this paper identifies and proposes a future research agenda on Toyota Kata based on a survey with Swedish Toyota Kata experts. As a result, 20 areas are highlighted and identified as the currently most desirable to understand and study more closely. Based on the areas, six themes are also identified and formulated.

    Entrepreneurship Education: Salvation or Damnation?2005In: Journal of Entrepreneurship Education, ISSN 1098-8394, E-ISSN 1528-2651, Vol. 8, p. 7-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many researchers, and policy makers, across Europe emphasise entrepreneurship education as the way to a future new welfare society. Why? The aim of this article is to discuss critically entrepreneurship education, starting in contemporary European research on entrepreneurship. Earlier research defines entrepreneurship as a temporary process of innovation, only possible in capitalistic societies. In more recent research entrepreneurship is located within the entrepreneur, to a limited number of traits typical for the entrepreneurial personality despite its surroundings. Environmental or cultural factors are treated as either to promote or inhibit entrepreneurial behaviour/personality. The locus to specific traits of the individual is the logic behind the, normative and quite naïve, favouring of entrepreneurship education. Entrepreneurship education, characterised by learning by doing, practice-orientation, and so on, is viewed as the way to foster the right kind of individuals; individuals with the specific traits who form a kind of inner resources that can be profitable on the global market. In this perspective, entrepreneurship education seems to be a part of the ongoing neo liberal oriented restructuring process, which is sweeping through Europe, and the writings on entrepreneurship education can be understood as a specific political/ideological activity.

    Strengthening quality culture in private sector and health care: What can we learn from applying soft measures?2018In: Leadership in Health Services, ISSN 1751-1879, E-ISSN 1751-1887, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 276-292Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this study is to present a comprehensive approach to studying organizational culture using “soft measures” to facilitate sustainable quality development in organizations. The purpose is also to present, discuss and compare the results from a survey designed to measure a company’s value base.

    Design/methodology/approach – A number of different methods were used to collect soft data to study and measure organizational culture and at the same time influence the culture and the leadership within three organizations. One method, the survey, was used on two different occasions to obtain an overview of the culture within an organization and to investigate if the activities had influenced the culture and the leadership.

    Findings – The application of soft measures used by leaders to study and develop organizational culture resulted in statistically significant positive changes in organizational work culture, according to a pre-post survey after a short period of one year.

    Practical implications – The approach can be used by leaders in different types of organizations as the challenge of changing the organizational culture through the leadership seems to be a common challenge regardless of line of business.

    Originality/value – The study shows the benefits of using a comprehensive approach to assess an organization’s culture based on qualitative measures and analysis.

    Using the employee satisfaction survey as a tool for building organizational culture2016In: EurOMA Conference Proceedings: Interactions, 2016, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a strong relationship between employee satisfaction and organizational results and using an employee surveys effectively could support quality improvements and organizational culture. The purpose of this paper is to present an employee satisfaction survey designed to change organizational culture and co-worker behaviors. Included in the analysis are results from that survey focusing on culture and leadership. The results show that asking a different kind of questions in an employee satisfaction survey and analyzing the results in more detail could give an organization a management tool to be used both to monitor and to build organizational culture.

    Truly changing the culture – learnings from a value-based top leader2017In: 20th QMOD conference: Challenges and Opportunities of Quality in the 4th Industrial Revolution / [ed] Su Mi Dahlgaard Park, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Both TQM and Lean are said to rest on a number of values that in turn are said to be the building blocks of the organizational culture needed to successfully apply TQM or Lean in an organization. The reason why applying Lean or TQM fail is frequently explained by the lack of focusing on values and culture and instead too big focus on tools and methods. In this context, leadership is often mentioned as one if the main keys to change the organizational culture as the leaders in organizations are the bearer of values. There is also a strong connection between values held and behaviors shown by the leaders and the co-workers in the organization. So the question arises; how come it´s so hard to make the change in leadership behaviors and by that the organizational culture? At the same time, there are leaders succeeding with consciously changing the culture and the values held by the co-workers. What can we learn from such a leaders that have succeeded in changing an exciting culture in an organization?

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to present the values held by and the ways of working used by a top leader (COO) with the aim to change the organizational culture.

    Methodology/approach – The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of a successful Lean company was interviewed in order to identify the managers´ values as well as ways of working. A developed interview guide was used to get an understanding of the values the leader had and to identify “other” softer aspects of his leadership. The results from the study was analyzed by the researchers, first by each researcher individually, then in workshops as a group.

    Findings – The results show that the COO appears to have an understanding about the connection between values and behaviors something shown by the close connection between the identified ways of working and values. The result also shows ways of working to achieve a cultural change, were the use of ROFO can be seen as a driving force for this. The COO displays a leadership and a value-base much in line with Lean leadership and value-base.Practical implications – The presented results can be used by leaders in different types of organization in their work with developing the culture and leadership.

    Concept maps, voice thread and visual images: Helping educators spawn divergent thinking and dialogic learning2014In: Cases on teaching critical thinking through visual representation strategies / [ed] Leonard J. Shedletsky and Jeffrey S. Beaudry, Hershey Pennsylvania: IGI Global, 2014, p. 387-417Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The context of this chapter has its roots in an educational movement that recognizes the importance of preparing youth for living and working in a global community. Central to this is a belief in 1) engaging students in collaborative learning, 2) developing cultural sensitivity, 3) using digital media for communication and creativity, and 4) transforming pedagogical practice to foster reflection, divergent thinking, and creativity. The question addressed in this chapter is how teachers can use digital media and visual images to spawn divergent thinking and dialogue in a global learning context. This chapter presents a case analysis to examine evidence of inquiry-based collaborative learning and three-dimensional thinking among students when using digital images and collaborative software in a global partnership project.

    Metaphors: We Manage and Develop Quality by Screening and Elaborating on the Metaphors of Quality Management2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Metaphors are a powerful and human way of understanding and experiencing one kind of thing in terms of another. In Quality Management (QM) several metaphors are used to describe and bring to life the often abstract QM concepts and systems in clearer terms. These metaphors are undoubtedly of great importance for how QM is understood, communicated and practiced. They can also be assumed to have a significant impact on the perceived attractiveness of, and engagement in, QM systems. However, the metaphors of QM have seldom been systematically screened or put in focus, neither the topic of a critical discussion. The purpose of this paper is hence to contribute with a screening of the metaphors currently used, within QM literature and in practice among QM leaders, and then elaborate on their potential for improvement and development.

    Methodology/Approach: The paper is based on a literature review combined with interviews of QM leaders.

    Findings: The paper highlights that the current QM metaphors provide intuitive associations to properties such as stability, shelter, and structure but not to the important dynamic properties of QM, such as learning, or to the critical role of people in QM. It also provides suggestions for further improvements and development.

    Value of the Paper: The paper highlights the area of metaphors within QM as an important area for future research. It also provides insights concerning the successful use and selection of metaphors in future QM practice.

    Interlinking Lean and Sustainability: How ready are leaders?In: Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore evidence of interlinkages between Lean and Sustainability among organisational leaders in the early stages of Lean implementation.

    Design/methodology: In this study, a multiple-site case study approach was used to gain insight into the connections between Lean and Sustainable Development during the implementation stages of a Lean practice. In-depth interviews were conducted with managers from four different units in one organisation regarding their perceptions about Lean in order to find out if they have knowledge and understanding about the interlinked areas between Lean and Sustainable Development. A literature study was conducted to identify those dimensions with interlinkages between Lean and sustainability. The findings were then used as an analytic frame determine whether these interlinkages were present in the organisation.

    Findings: Evidence of dimensions with interlinkages between Lean and Sustainable Development was found; however, their presence was incomplete and inconsistent across clinics.

    Research implications: The insights from the research can help organisations plan for the implementation of Lean practice, particularly when a sub-goal is to achieve Sustainable Development.

    Originality/value:

    The study shows the importance of focusing on managers’ knowledge and understanding of the interlinkages between Lean and Sustainable Development when implementing Lean in order to utilise Leans full potential when it comes to achieving Sustainability.

    Chinese translation of Living on the Edge of Chaos: leading Schools into the Global Age2011Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is an elegy of education in the industrial civilization and a prelude of educational innovation in an information age. It is written by authors with multi-disciplinary background and years of experiences in educational reform and exploration.

     

    The authors explore the shift and innovation of educational paradigms in the 21st century, an age of information and globalization. Guided by the theories and methods of systems science (chaos), this book critically reviews the mechanical view of change, presents some exploratory research and practices with an insight into organization management, and proposes an organic emergent methodology of change. This casts light on school reinvention on the edge of chaos and paves a way for creating global learning centers in the 21st century while unfolding the mission and future of schools as global learning centers.

     

    This book is a necessity for 21st century education reformers who want to broaden their horizons and knowledge. It will bring the readers unimaginable wisdom in education innovation.   (Text on the back cover)

     

    Education pioneers who are dancing with “chains” all have this experience: it is very difficult to reform in the central area of education where traditional forces are strong and powerful, but when they consciously or unconsciously move away from the center to the “chaotic edge”, resistance greatly decreases. The “chaotic edge” is far away from the fierce competition in the “center”, but it is not a barren land without information input. Instead, it is an active area where stagnation and disorder are in frequent change. It is an area where complex systems can adjust and survive and where new ideas and creative practices can grow healthily and rapidly. However, to live on the edge of chaos means to give up all the benefits and profits in the central area and to choose to be marginalized. It also requires the educators to transcend classical view of science, of development, of education, and of methodology, and to get familiar with the epistemology, axiology, and methodology of living on the edge of chaos in complex education systems.

    Living on the edge of chaos: Leading schools into the global age2008 (ed. 2nd)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Life today is global on many levels and the 21st century will be earmarked as the first age of global living for the masses. Educators need a new mindset to lead them to a new paradigm of schooling, with a new curriculum called life. as in the first edition of this book, the authors argue that schools can adapt better to emergin global working and living conditions when they are set free of bureaucratic thinking and instead hold systemic thinking as a mindset. In this second edition, the authors have now added how a much sharper focus is needed: developing schools as global learning centers that prepare students now to be competent and caring global citizens.It is within the global context of living that the mission of schools needs to change course so that students, at every age, can become citizens who are both knowledgeable and skillful and who care about the human community and its sustainability.
