    Boende för äldre: En studie av 10 kommuner2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Andelen äldre personer i det svenska samhället ökar. I Sverige finns boendeformer som på olika sätt är anpassade efter äldres behov. Hur utbudet av dessa för äldre individer anpassade boendeformer ser ut och vilken information kommuner ger till äldre kan ses som viktiga för att förstå om äldre väljer att bo kvar eller flytta.  I denna rapport kartläggs hur nuvarande utbud av de tre boendeformerna vård- och omsorgsboende, trygghetsbostäder och seniorbostäder ser ut på bostadsmarknaden vad gäller den äldre befolkningen i tio utvalda kommuner. I rapporten ligger tonvikten på kommunala företrädares uppfattningar och på kommunernas planer. För att få en större förståelse görs jämförelser med siffror från samtliga kommuner hämtade från Boverkets Bostadsmarknadsenkät (2014). Denna rapport är den första delen av en större studie som syftar till att undersöka push- och pullfaktorer som påverkar äldres val av boende. Av kartläggningen framgår att bostadsutbudet i de olika kommunerna skiljer sig åt, där vissa har bostadsöverskott medan andra har bostadsunderskott men där majoriteten av kommunerna erbjuder de tre olika boendeformerna. I storstadsregionen och i de större städerna finns ett utbud av samtliga tre boendeformer medan flera av glesbygdskommunerna saknar trygghetsbostäder. Rådgivning i de flesta kommuner är reaktiv snarare än proaktiv. I rapporten väcks frågan om hur vi ska se på boendet för de äldsta.

    Interpartner legitimacy in a regional strategic network in tourism2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Network interaction by non-business actors for business purposes is receiving increased interest within research (cf. Hadjikhani and Ghauri, 2001) but much remain to further research. A typical example of such network interaction that still is little researched is collaboration in tourism destination networks. The purposes of this paper are to contribute to research on the formation and evolution of relationships within the tourism industry, and to test the interpartner legitimacy effect on network formation and development. The chosen method is a case study of a Swedish network formation initiative. Faced with the situation that their region was lagging behind other Swedish regions in the development of tourism, actors within the Dalarna region were spurred to form a Regional Strategic Network (RSN). Its central purposes were to consolidate the regional tourism industry, to strengthen the name of the region as a brand and to establish the entire region as a single destination. This paper contributes by showing how different types of interpartner legitimacies hinder and facilitate the network formation process.

    Interpartner Legitimacy Effects on Cluster Initiative Formation and Development Processes2015In: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 23, no 5, p. 892-908Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In spite of the growing interest in cluster initiatives (CIs) as a means of regional development, there are still few studies of CIs that offer an inside perspective. This article takes such an inside perspective, focusing on the internal legitimacy aspects of the formation and evolving processes of CIs. We propose the inclusion of interpartner legitimacy effects in order to better understand the formation and development of CIs. A case study method is applied on a Swedish CI in the tourism industry. Faced with the situation that their region was lagging behind other Swedish regions in the development of tourism, the actors were spurred to promote a CI. Its central purposes were to consolidate the regional tourism industry, strengthen the regional brand and to establish the entire region as a single coherent destination. This paper contributes to the research body of regional development and CIs by showing how different types of interpartner legitimacies hinder and facilitate the CI process.

    Etablering av försäkringsverksamhet på utvecklingsmarknader (emerging markets)2008In: Nordisk Försäkringstidskrift (NFT), no 3Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Flera försäkringsbolag har under åren expanderat genom att etablera verksamheter utomlands. I samband med att järnridån föll i början 1990-talet var det flera försäkringsbolag och banker som såg möjligheter med att gå in på dessa tidigare relativt oexploaterade marknader.

    Att gå in på en sk. emerging market, dvs. en marknad som är i snabb expansion, kan verka lockande och många gånger kan det även verka enkelt att  etablera sig på denna typ av marknad men pga. att det är utvecklingsmarknader är det många faktorer som behöver vägas in. En av slutsatserna som drogs i en studie av tre försäkringsbolag som under samma period etablerade sig i Polen visade att en etablering ofta tar längre tid och kräver mer resurser än vad bolagen initialt förutspått. Några av förklaringarna till detta är icke-existerande distributionskanaler och att de institutionella ramarna starkt bidragit till att försvåra processen.

    Flyttkedjor och boende på ålderns höst2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta projekt har Sabine Gebert Persson och Lina Bellman vid CER bedrivit tillsammans med Hans Lind vid KTH och Maria Kulander vid högskolan i Gävle. Syftet var att studera utbud av bostäder för äldre samt vilka push- respektive pullfaktorer som påverkar äldres val av boende. Resultaten visar att det saknas en samsyn om bostadsformer, majoriteten av kommunerna har reaktiv informationsspridning och boendemiljö är den faktor som påverkar mest. Resultaten från projektet har tidigare publicerats i rapporterna "Vad påverkar äldres val av boendeform" (Gebert Persson, Bellman, Kulander och Lind, 2015) och "Boende för äldre: En studie av 10 kommuner" (Lind, Kulander, Gebert Persson och Bellman, 2015).

    Understanding legitimacy in a foreign market entry process2009In: International Journal of Business Environment, ISSN 1740-0589, E-ISSN 1740-0597, Vol. 2, no 4, p. 452-467Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a network perspective, entering a foreign market is seen as establishing relationships across borders. In this article, however, it is argued that apart from and/or along with developing relationships, it is vital to consider how the entrant firm understands what is perceived as legitimate. The purpose, therefore, is to develop the research on foreign market entry processes by focusing on the entrant firm's understanding of host country actors' expectations on its behaviour, providing legitimacy to the entrant firm. It is proposed that the foreign market entry process is affected by the degree of internationalisation in the home market network, the structure of the host country network, and the coercive, as well as the normative pressures. One implication is that an entrant firm must understand the correspondence between its interpretations and the host country's real expectations.

    Interpartner legitimacy in Regional Strategic Networks2011In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 40, no 6, p. 1024-1031Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim is to add to the knowledge on a network level, focusing on if, and how, interpartner legitimacy affects the success or failure of network formation and development processes. Existing network theories and research tend to focus on resource exchange rather than on how actors perceive each other in terms of being legitimate or not. The purpose of the article is to analyze the interpartner legitimacy's influence on the formation and development processes of regional strategic networks (RSNs) from a network level. Two Swedish cases are discussed in terms of pragmatic, moral and cognitive interpartner legitimacy. The cases and the following discussion illuminate that interpartner legitimacy is important to incorporate into the analytical model if we wish to understand the processes of negotiations on the rules and norms which set the possibilities for survival of multi-actor interactions.

    Highlights

    ►Legitimacy's role in the formation and operation of Regional Strategic Networks. ►Adds to the knowledge on a network level. ►Interpartner legitimacy affects success/failure of network formation and development. ►Smooth formation processes not the best development of Regional Strategic Networks.

    Ömsesidig legitimitet i regionala strategiska nätverk2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Lokala samarbeten i form av regionala strategiska nätverk har blivit ett allt vanligare verktyg i försöken att skapa regional utveckling. Syftet med denna studie, utförd av Sabine Gebert Persson, Heléne Lundberg och Edith Andresen vid CER, är att försöka förstå hur dessa nätverk utvecklas och vad de kan uppnå. Resultaten pekar på att förekomsten av olika former av ömsedig legitimitet mellan deltagarna är en viktig faktor att beakta. Forskningsresultaten har tidigare publicerats i den internationella artikeln "Interpartner legitimacy in regional strategic networks" (Gebert Persson, Lundberg och Andresen, 2011).

    On the discursive contest of an international M&A relationship development process within financial services2014In: International Business Review, ISSN 0969-5931, E-ISSN 1873-6149, Vol. 23, no 6, p. 1064-1073Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The global liberalisation of national regulated financial services' sectors has opened up a wave of international mergers and acquisitions processes. To succeed with such processes, a positive relationship needs to be developed between involved parties. But actors within and outside involved companies in international mergers and acquisitions may have conflicting interests, not least because of national resistance to changes in domestic financial sectors. In order to study the discourse among such actors, this paper presents a theoretical view based on business relationships, highlighting the concept of legitimacy. The aim is to analyse how different actors communicate in and through the media, in order to legitimise their own actions or to delegitimise the actions of their opponents in the relationship development process. The empirical investigation is a longitudinal study of an acquisition process between two insurance companies from Sweden and South Africa. A discourse analysis shows that the relationship development process is not only a matter of rational arguments. It is rather a struggle between actors drawing on discourses that change over time, as a means to affect perceptions of legitimate behaviours to reach the preferred outcome. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

    I don’t want to be a burden to my children: a study of older adults’ perceptions of senior housing in Sweden and Finland2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Research focusing on wellbeing of individuals and communities, i.e. transformative service research (TSR), has become one of the top priorities in service research. TSR is still in its infancy and more research is needed in this area. This paper contributes to TSR by studying older adults’ perceptions of the transition from independent living at home to dependent living in senior housing with assisted care.

    Methods – The paper draws on the findings of a large scale survey with older adults conducted in Sweden, and an eight months long ethnographic field study conducted at a senior housing site in Finland.

    Findings– We identified a complex range of issues motivating older adults to move into senior housing with assisted care. Through the lens of selfdetermination theory we suggest that the more intrinsic the motives are to make such a transition, the greater the potential for experiencing eudaimonic wellbeing. While this insight is not groundbreaking, thus far transformative research has not investigated this topic.

    Conclusions – As more individuals live longer and the older adults grow in size as a group, the demand on care service is increasing. Assistance will be needed for daily living and developing senior housing that support wellbeing is essential to meet these consumer needs.

    Determinants of digitally instigated insurance relationships2011In: International Journal of Bank Marketing, ISSN 0265-2323, E-ISSN 1758-5937, Vol. 29, no 7, p. 517-534Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to develop a conceptual model for explaining insurance customers' intentions towards using the internet as a channel for communication and interaction with insurance companies by integrating Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and trust. Design/methodology/approach: The paper seeks to conceptually develop an integrated framework for studying and measuring the perceptions of customers towards using the internet as a source of communication and interaction. The TAM model is taken as a point of departure where trust and trustworthiness, being essential in insurance relationships, have been included in the model. Trust is divided into perceived competence, perceived benevolence and perceived integrity, which in turn affect whether the customer will find the firm trustworthy or not. A second dimension that is developed in this paper is the disposition to trust, which is defined as a customer-related factor. This disposition to trust is in turn affected by the customer's internet knowledge and product knowledge. Findings: The paper contributes by developing the model for understanding and explaining factors that affect customers' attitudes and intentions towards on-line interactions. By emphasizing internet-, customer- and Ffrm-related factors, it would arguably be possible to explain factors that affect trust, and trustworthiness, as well as the customer's attitudes towards the organization and the communication and distribution channel while also integrating the customer-specific factors. Research limitations: The model developed in this paper is conceptual and needs to be tested empirically. Originality/value: The findings of this paper will serve as a basis for further research aiming at answering the research question on what factors affect customers' attitudes towards using the internet as an interface within the financial services sector. It also contributes to practices by identifying and defining factors that can affect trust in relationshipsas well as the choice of communication and distribution channels depending on customers' attitudes. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    Taking charge: To improve the intraorganizational position by means of a regionalstrategic network among competitors2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Subunits act under a constant threat of closure, relocation, or downsizing of tasks and employees. We have addressed the issues of evolving organizational strategy and subunit strategizing by studying how an RSN including competitive actors can be used by subunit managers for strengthening a unit’s position within the organizational hierarchy. It is concluded that networks can be used as resources for the local subunit to affect its position internally within the organization. However, the activities to affect the headquarters also had a positive effect on the position of the subunit within the local and regional network as well where new and stronger relationships evolved as a result.
