    Challenges of Global Virtual Teams - Communication, Trust and Relationship2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The advances in technology over the last decades have created opportunities for multinational companies to create new kind of teams. These so called Global Virtual Teams (GVT) only communicate virtually and have because of this allowed members to be located all over the world without being limited to any certain location and thus making the teams culturally diverse. Because of the fact that GVTs are multicultural as well as virtual, the effectiveness ofthe GVTs has been questioned. The most critical challenges of GVTs has been described to be communication, trust and relationship building, and these challenges have been described to exist because of the lack of face-to-face interactions which are considered to be important in order to be able to communicate, create trust and build relationships effectively. However, theimportance of face-to-face interactions has been questioned by a small but a growing number of researches. To get a deeper understanding of how these challenges pose challenges for GVTs, semi-structured interviews have been conducted with eight leaders of GVTs in order to see how they perceive these challenges in their teams. The results indicated that the challenges might not pose as great challenges and might not either be as present in GVTs asthey have been portrayed in previous studies.

    Små och medelstora exportföretags upplevda autonomi, strategi och utfall i samband med internationalisering: En kvantitativ studie av svenska och kinesiska företag2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Internationalization has been studied by many researchers, mainly trying to explain why, how and when companies internationalize. However, it can be concluded that a gap exists in studies that examine how companies strategically plan and make decisions related to internationalization. By investigating how small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) strategically plan and make decisions in their export activities we aim in this study to investigate how much planning that takes place in internationalization and how autonomous companies allows their employees to be. Furthermore, the purpose of the study is to examine how the outcomes in terms of satisfaction will be based on these internationalization decisions. The survey was conducted in both Swedish and Chinese exporting SME. These SMEs were chosen in order to find out if there existed any differences in their internationalization strategies and perceived autonomy. We found it interesting to study companies from a large country like China, compared with companies from a smaller country like Sweden. In addition to the sizes of the countries we chose these companies because of cultural differences that exist between the countries. From the empirical results, we found significant positive correlation between autonomy and outcomes and between planning strategy and outcomes. We also found a tendency for employees of the Chinese companies to experience a greater degree of autonomy in comparison to employees of the Swedish companies. Furthermore, Chinese companies tend to use a planned strategy in their internationalization and Swedish companies use both planned and unplanned strategies for internationalization.
