    Utvärderingsmodeller vid offentlig upphandling: En granskning av förekommande modeller och möjlighet till ett enhetligt val av en modell2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to address the evaluation phase within the area of public procurement and more specifically, from a supplier perspective. Public procurement is carried out in order to get good quality at a low price. The procurement can be performed by the lowest price or by the most economically advantageous tender. Previously concluded contracts were requested and the evaluation model that they used was identified and also it’s corresponding mathematical model. The score-weighted models were not consistent because they depended on irrelevant variables, as did the relative quality-weighted model in theory. This means that non-competitive tender affects the outcome of the other tenders. The study showed that it is more beneficial to choose the relative quality-weighted model over the score-weighting model, as it does not suffer from the irrelevant variable situation. The relative quality-weighted model is equivalent to the more superior quality-weighted model with discrete premium/discounts. This is the case as the ranking of the tenderers bids were the same in the two models. Furthermore, it was shown through a sensitivity analysis, that the weighting for the quality and the price from the score-weighted model played no role in the relative quality-weighted model; this is also an advantage as the purchaser often arbitrarily sets it.

    Going concern varningar och finansiell stress2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction and purpose – The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to describe and analyze the proportions of going concern warnings (GCW) among Swedish limited companies that went bankrupt in 2014. This study will analyze if the auditor's propensity of issuing GCW increases if companies are financially distressed from three different definitions of financial stress. The thesis also analyzes whether there are differences in the propensity to issue a GCWbetween authorized and approved auditor, and between the Big N firms and non-Big N firms. Previous research has not analyzed and compared different definitions of financial stress and GCW.Methodology – This bachelor thesis is a quantitative research and 939 companies were included in the survey. The variables in the study were collected separately and then added together to examine how the independent variables financial stress, the auditor's competence and the size of the firm affects the dependent variable GCW. Statistical processing has beendone by measuring regression and 2-proportionstest.Findings – The results show that the propensity that a Swedish auditor issues a GCW is low, the accuracy is 24,8 percent. The tendency that the auditor issues a GCW will increase if companies are financially distressed. The results are consistent with previous studies. The definition of financial distress are significant when we compare them with each other. Auditor competence are crucial for the issuing of GCW, however, auditor competence are not crucial for the issuing of GCW to financially distressed companies. The results shows no difference with the auditor´s propensity to issuing GCW among the Big N auditors and non-Big N auditors.Conclusions – Our conclusion is that an auditor's assessment of the going concern process remains problematic. There is a strong relationship between all the definitions of financial distress and GCW. When we compare the definitions of financial distress with each other, we found a difference. Two of the definitions, we can consider to be helpful in assessing the GCW.

    Att leda och känna som chef: En studie kring användningen av emotionellt arbete bland kvinnor i chefspositioner2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Leadership and organizational research has historically been seen from a male perspective, this has led to the fact that women in management positions partly have been neglected in the field of research on leadership. To contribute to a better understanding of women's experiences and conditions in managerial positions this paper is based on a women perspective. The importance of emotions in leadership, is a relatively new phenomenon, one aspect that holds within that area is emotional labor. Emotional labor is about how people actively create and guide their emotions in line with social structures and institutions influence. The purpose of this paper is to explore and increase the understanding of emotional labor of women in management positions. Seven women in managerial positions has been interviewed, and the answers from these women have then been analyzed and discussed. The results show that women in the study use emotional labor both in terms of surface acting and deep acting. Furthermore, the results show that company's expectations and guidelines serve as emotional control, that to some extent control the women's use of emotional labor. A deeper understanding of emotional labor among women in management positions is discussed to create more knowledge about conditions and patterns that may need to be strengthened or broken. This understanding may be important both for companies in general, but also for policy makers who want to increase the number of women in management positions.

    "Även om jag bor här i 100 år så blir det inte samma": En kvalitativ studie av fem ensamkommande ungdomar och deras personliga identitetsutveckling i mottagarlandet.2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    SAMMANFATTNING:

    Människor tvingas fly ifrån sina hemländer på grund av våld för att söka säkerhet någon annanstans. Att människor lämnar ett land eller tvingas fly har skett under alla tider. Människor flyr från förföljelse, fattigdom, svält eller krig. Uppskattningsvis finns 19,2 miljoner människor på flykt runt om i världen och nära hälften av dessa är barn. Av de barn som befinner sig på flykt är de ensamkommande ungdomarna en viktig grupp att urskilja. Då de ensamkommande asylsökande ungdomarna är i behov av särskilt skydd. Under 2003 var de flesta ensamkommande ungdomar i Sverige från Somalia, Irak, Serbien och Montenegro. Vårt syfte är att få ökad förståelse för ensamkommande ungdomars upplevelser av hur deras identitet formats i hemlandet och senare i mottagarlandet i samspel med människor i sin omgivning. Samt vilken betydelse asylprocessen och tidigare trauman har haft för ungdomarnas personliga identitetsutveckling. De faktorer som berörts som viktiga för ungdomens personliga identitetsutveckling är förluster, boende, ovisshet, familjeåterförening och nätverk samt språket.Vi har valt att göra en explorativ studie som innefattar kvalitativa halvstrukturerade intervjuer med fem ensamkommande ungdomar. Resultatet i form av empiri och analys har utförts utifrån tidigare forskning och från Cullbergs kristeori samt relevanta begrepp som etnicitet och identitet utifrån symbolisk interaktionism. Studien har visat att samtliga ungdomar upplevt att den ovisshet de levt i under asylprocessen samt tidigare trauman har påverkat dem mycket både psykiskt och fysiskt. De ungdomar vi har intervjuat upplever alla att de idag har en ny personlighet efter att ha fått uppehållstillstånd. Den nya identiteten har enligt ungdomarna påverkats bland annat av föräldrarnas uppfostran och de nya människor de möter i mottagarlandet samt av de nya miljöerna ungdomarna befinner sig i.

    THE PROS AND CONS OF WORKING IN TEMPORARY AGENCY WORK: CASE OF WORKER PERSPECTIVE INTHE SWEDISH LABOUR MARKET2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This thesis aims at exploring some of the possibilities,opportunities and challenges within the temporary agency work sector from boththe regular and the temporary agency workers points of view within the Swedish labourmarket. Background: Temporary agency work sector in the past two decadeshas been a fast growing sector that has got many young people into the labourmarket. With the current changes in the global economy, many organizations areturning more to these organizations to enable them adapt to changes in theirenvironment. In Sweden for instance, the growth and development of this sectorhas primarily been due to the constantly increasing rates of unemployment,massive job losses and also as a result of de-regulation of labour regulations. Methodology: A quantative survey was carried out using structuredquestionnaires in three companies that largely engage in hiring of temporaryworkers.  A total of 137 regular andtemporary agency workers, took part in the survey which was conducted through aweb-survey to e-mail addresses provided by client companies and temporary work agenciesand for those who had no access to e-mail received the questionnaires duringstaff meetings. Findings: Majorityof those engaged in this sector are young people of ages between 20 and 30years old, with high school education level and not married but maybe livingwith girlfriend or boyfriend. It resulted that many see these sectors asoffering an entry point into the labour market through which they feelrecognized and hopefully can advance their careers. Although all that glittersis not gold, those who work within this sector are also faced with variouschallenges that make it more of a stepping stone work place such as lack ofcontrol, complex interpersonal, insecurity and being treated as commodities andthe inability to decide when, where and how to work, with very little or nocontrol of when they can take off. Conclusion: On testing thehypothesis in relation to the possibilities, opportunities and challenges ofworking in the sector, it was not very obvious within the sector that ingeneral the regular staff had more favourable conditions than the temporary,but it did vary from one situation to the other and more often than not theyhad similar conditions. For instance, individualized flexibility was equallynot easy to achieve by the employees within the two groups.

    IT-verktyg i distribuerade team: Egenskaper i IT-verktyg för att upprätthålla god kommunikation2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about IT-tools and communication in distributed system development teams. The purpose of this study is to identify how the members of distributed teams perceive their own communication, and to identify the characteristics that are considered important in the IT-tools to be able to maintain a good communication. To carry out this work, we did a case study where we sent out survey to a company that works distributed and that has team members both in Spain and in Sweden. We also conducted an interview with one of the respondents to be able to get deeper answers to our survey questions. The study showed that most were satisfied with the communication, but they still felt that communication could be improved. The study also showed that most respondents lacked certain qualities in their current IT-tools. The result of this study should be of interest to companies with similar conditions.

    "Dom lyssnade ju inte på mig...": En kvalitativ studie om tre unga kvinnors upplevelser av sin kontakt med Socialtjänsten.2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna studie har vi undersökt hur tre unga kvinnor upplevt sin kontakt med Individ- och Familjeomsorgen (IFO) inom Socialtjänsten. Studien syftade till att belysa kvinnornas upplevelser av kontakten under utrednings- och placeringsförfarandet. I studien har tre kvinnor i åldrarna 18-25 år deltagit genom kvalitativa halvstrukturerade intervjuer. Materialet har analyserats med hjälp av Barnperspektivet, komponenterna begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet samt tidigare forskning. Resultatet visar att kvinnorna har olika upplevelser. Den mest framträdande gemensamma upplevelsen är att de inte känt sig delaktiga i sitt utrednings- och placeringförfarande i den utsträckning de hade önskat. En annan viktig slutsats av resultatet är att socialsekreterarens personliga egenskaper och engagemang är av stor betydelse för hur kvinnorna upplevt delaktighet under utredning och placering.

    Handläggares praktiska makt över bevarande och gallring: En studie hos svenska statliga myndigheter2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is a suspicion of increased destruction of documents when the Administrative Officer manages the records appraisal in Swedish government authorities, which can lead to a problem regarding the transparency and public access to information. The aim of this thesis was to contribute with knowledge about in which extent an Administrative Officer has the power over practical records appraisal in Swedish government authorities and to find out if the practical power depended on activities within the agencies.

     

    Interviews with Archivists and Administrative Officers at two different Swedish government authorities were conducted in order to see if the activities within the authorities affected how Administrative Officers handled the records appraisal. The study involved a small and a large authority to examine whether different activities could affect the practical power over records appraisal.

     

    The activity theory was used to introduce, present and analyze the survey results. Records Continuum Model is another theory model that was highlighted in the thesis to show the importance of planning the records management even before a record is created.

     

    The result of the case studies showed that there were records not handled according to the rules and policies for one of the studied authorities. It was revealed that Administrative Officers had some practical power over appraisal. The result also showed that the activities within the authorities strongly affected the practical power which Administrative Officers was given. It was shown that, in an authority with a large number of employees and greater flow of information, the Archivist did not reach out with information and routines to the employees. Administrative Officers also had less time to evaluate information when the number of e-mail was a problem.

    Finns det ett samband mellan utnyttjandegraden avfriskvårdsförmåner och de anställdas upplevda arbetsmotivation?2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    På många arbetsplatser sker idag olika typer av friskvårdssatsningar i syfte att få friskare medarbetare med hög arbetskapacitet och som är motiverade i sitt arbete. Studiens primära syfte var att undersöka om utnyttjandegraden av friskvårdsförmånerna har en positiv effekt på den upplevda arbetsmotivationen. Författarna ämnade även att sekundärt kartlägga inledningarna till varför de anställda inte utnyttjar friskvårdsförmånerna fullt ut. En enkätstudie genomfördes på en avdelning hos Försäkringskassan i Östersund. Totalt deltog 109 respondenter. Data analyserades med hjälp av korrelationer, t-test, regressionsanalys samt variansanalys. Resultaten visar attutnyttjandegraden av friskvårdsförmåner inte har någon märkbar effekt på den upplevda arbetsmotivationen. De anställda utnyttjar friskvårdsförmånerna i relativt stor utsträckning och den upplevda arbetsmotivationen är förhållandevis hög. Friskvårdsförmånerna bedöms vara en väsentlig del av arbetsförhållandet och kan i enlighet med Herzbergs motivationsteori ses som en hygienfaktor.

    Revisionsbyråers kvalité: en studie om Going Concern-varningar och anmärkningar på finansiell stress2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The international accuracy of Going Concern-warnings (GC-warnings) is as low as 40 percent, although studies show the accuracy is even lower in Sweden, under 20 percent. The four biggest accounting firms in the world advertise their knowledge of industry and a number of studies say that they have higher audit quality than the smaller firms. Meanwhile there are studies that claim that there are no differences in quality between them and the smaller firms. In this study we aim to test if the large firms have higher auditing quality than the medium and small firms and to test if there is any difference within the three categories. We measure quality as GC-warnings and a remark on financial stress (a remark on the equity being lower than 50 percent of the share capital). The study is quantitative and our data consists of 4718 limited companies, and 1809 financially stressed limited companies, which went bankrupt 2010. We measured the GC-warning accuracy to 17 percent and the remark on financial stress to 82 percent by using a Chi square test. We used the same test but added P-value to check the strength on the rest of the results. There is a very strong connection between the share of GC-warnings and the size of the accounting firm. There is also a very strong connection between the share of GC-warnings and the different firms within the large category. However there was only a weak connection between the different firms within the medium size and no connection at all within the small category. There is no connection at all between remarks on financial stress and either the firm size or within the firm size categories. According to our results, large audit firms have higher audit quality than medium and small firms concerning GC-warnings, but there are no differences between and within the categories concerning remarks on financial stress. We also find that quality concerning GC-warnings is not homogeneous between the different audit firms within each category. Our conclusions are that the accuracy on GC-warnings is low but it could increase if the auditors complement imponderable information with verifiable information and if methods for GC-judgments were established. The audit quality within large firms is not homogeneous which may be due to that the different audit firms within the categories use different ways to work, which causes differences in audit quality.

    Revisorers benägenhet att lämna orena revisionsberättelser och Going Concern-varningar: kopplingar till demografiska faktorer2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    SAMMANFATTNING

    Andelen orena revisionsberättelser och Going Concern-varningar (GC-varningar) ligger enligt tidigare studier mellan 60 och 68 procent respektive 12 och 20 procent bland svenska aktiebolag som gått i konkurs. Fenomenet förklaras vanligen som nära kopplat till negativa konsekvenser, som bolaget, revisorn och bolagets intressenter kan komma att utsättas för vid en oren revisionsberättelse eller GC-varning. Flera förklaringar bortser från demografiska faktorer, som också kan spela en roll i sammanhanget. Syftet med denna studie är att kartlägga andelen orena revisionsberättelser och GC-varningar samt att pröva om det finns samband mellan utvalda demografiska faktorer (revisorers kön, revisorers kompetens, revisorers arbetsbelastning samt revisorers arbetsplats) och andelen orena revisionsberättelser och GC-varningar, samt klargöra hur starka dessa eventuella samband är. Vi utförde studien kvantitativt utifrån material från ett forskningsprojekt i företagsekonomi på Mittuniversitetet i Sundsvall. Våra data omfattar 3101 aktiebolag, som gått i konkurs år 2010 mellan perioden 01-01 till 08-31. Vi har genom statistiska undersökningar med Chi 2 test kommit fram till att träffsäkerheten för orena revisionsberättelser är 66 procent och GC-varningar ligger på 16 procent. Med hjälp av Chi 2 test och P-värde har vi kommit fram till våra resultat angående sambanden. Vi finner inget som tyder på att kvinnor utfärdar fler orena revisionsberättelser eller GC-varningar än män. Vi finner inte heller något stöd för att auktoriserade revisorer utfärdar fler orena revisionsberättelser än godkända revisorer, men ett visst stöd gällande GC-varningar. Vi ser ett starkt samband mellan räkenskapsåret 12-31 och orena revisionsberättelser men inget samband gällande GC-varningar. Det finns inte heller något samband mellan de sju största revisionsbyråerna i Sverige och orena revisionsberättelser respektive GC-varningar enligt vår studie. Våra slutsatser i studien är att träffsäkerheten på GC-varningar är låg och vi ifrågasätter om det ska vara revisorers uppgift att utfärda sådana varningar. Om detta fortsatt ligger hos revisorn att bedöma, skulle träffsäkerheten kunna öka om andelen auktoriserade revisorer ökade. En eventuell borttagning av viss lagstiftning kan behövas för att eventuellt öka spridningen på arbetsbörda för revisorer och förbättra revisionens kvalité.

    Det slutar inte efter 65, om våld i nära relationer: en forskningsöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 210 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ABSTRACT:

    Begreppet ”våld i nära relationer” associeras ofta med medelålderspar som befinner sig i en

    ohälsosam relation där det förekommer fysiskt våld såsom sparkar och slag. Genom att gå

    djupare inom ämnet kan vi se att begreppet omfattar ett betydligt större problemområde än så,

    vad gäller både gruppen av utsatta samt flertalet existerande våldstyper. Denna

    litteraturöversikt fokuserar på våld riktat mot en av samhällets mest utsatta grupper, nämligen

    våra äldre. Baserat på befintlig internationell samt nationell forskning har här sammanställts

    en översikt av denna omfattande men ofta förbisedda problematik. Underlaget utgörs av

    fjorton vetenskapliga artiklar som presenteras utifrån tre problemområden. Det stora

    mörkertalet, riskfaktorer och förslag på interventioner behandlas och diskuteras här med

    utgångspunkt i de olika våldsprofilerna fysiskt, psykiskt, sexuellt, ekonomiskt/materiellt våld

    samt försummelse. Analysering av befintlig forskning har resulterat i dragna slutsatser

    gällande riskfaktorer, konsekvenser, vikten av ökad kunskap och medvetenhet samt

    individanpassade interventioner och åtgärder.

    Lokalt, lojalt och betalt: En kvalitativ studie av Mittmedias lansering av nyhetsapplikationer2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Problemformulering och syfte: Lokaltidningarnas pappersupplagor minskar i Sverige. De digitala plattformarna blir allt viktigare för mediehusen när människor i allt större utsträckning övergår till att konsumera medier via sina mobiltelefoner. En naturlig del i utvecklingen blir att medierna följer samma väg, för att på det viset också i fortsättningen nå ut till sin publik, och på längre sikt säkra och stärka sin ekonomi. Syftet med vår studie är att undersöka varför svenska lokalmedier väljer att implementera nya tekniker och det gör vi genom att i en fallstudie följa mediekoncernen Mittmedias satsning på mobila och digitala plattformar när koncernen lanserar nyhetsapplikationer och push-notiser under hösten 2015. Vi studerar hur lanseringen förbereds, vilka strategier och drivkrafter som är inblandade och hur lanseringen genomförs på fyra olika redaktioner inom Mittmedia.  Metod och material: Vi inleder med att studera och själva använda test-versionerna av applikationerna och deltar på Mittmedias förberedande möten. Vi genomför sedan kvalitativa och semistrukturerade samtalsintervjuer med digitalchefer på respektive redaktion som ingår i undersökningen, samt den redaktionellt utvecklingsansvarige på Mittmedia. Intervjuerna genomförs dels i samband med att nyhetsapplikationerna släpps ut till allmänheten, dels några veckor senare i uppföljande syfte.  Huvudresultat: Vi kommer fram till tre nyckelord: Lokalt, lojalt och betalt, som tillsammans sammanfattar det breda spektrumet i lanseringen.

    När journalisten blir supporter: En kvalitativ studie av lokala sportjournalisters förhållande till objektvitet2014Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    På journalistutbildningar i Sverige sätts objektivitet i fokus och det är en viktig hörnstenom man vill behålla sin trovärdighet i sin yrkesroll. Angående sportjournalistik finns envanlig uppfattning att objektiviteten sätts åt sidan till förmån för subjektivt tyckande. Desom blir mest ifrågasatta är framförallt lokala tidningar som följer ortens lag. Därför vill viundersöka hur journalisterna ser på sin egen objektivitet och om de är medvetna omproblematiken. Vi har genomfört två djupintervjuer med lokala sportjournalisterhemmahörande i Karlstad och Skellefteå. Till grund för detta har vi gjort en textanalys sombehandlar SM-finalserien i ishockey 2014 mellan Färjestad BK och Skellefteå AIK. De harbåde fått reflektera över sina texter och över objektiviteten i sin yrkesroll. Vi har publiceratderas intervjuer tillsammans en kommentar av problemformuleringen. Resultatet visar påatt journalisterna är medvetna om bristerna men att det finns en subjektivitet som till stordel sker på ett omedvetet plan.

    Cognitive Distance and Innovation Performance: Where is the empirical literature directing us?2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This study aims to shed some light on the concept of cognitive distance in relation to innovation performance, due to the various uses of the concept in literature, and lack of a clear overview. This study investigated the uses of the different concepts and the different results that are the outcome of innovation studies.Methodology – The study is conducted through a literary review using 28 relevant studies that have been search for in Business Source Premier. The studies have been analyzed using Provan et al (2007) typology of interorganizational network research.Key findings - The results show that the different uses of the concept and difference in results of the researched studies are due to the fact that scholars are researching different subjects on different levels. The differences are due to the different methodological approaches, investigated area and level of which the research is conducted. Significant finding is that most results in the researched studies agree that with cognitive distance, there is a higher chance forinnovation.

    Unga och Politiskt Deltagande: Internets inverkan på ungas politiska deltagande.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Today, there is an increase in the use of Internet and a decline in political participation. A discussion on wheatear or not the concept of political participation should be broadened to also include political activates online has begun. The purpose of this study is to investigate the view of political participation among youth.Methodology – This study is quantitative in nature, since it builds on two previous quantitative studies. One is a national study about Swedes and the Internet, and the other on a regional level concerning youth in Skåne. Data from the two studies are used to confirm or disregard four hypotheses which are deducted from the presented theoretical framework concerning political participation.Key Findings – This study finds support that youth are more political participant on the Internet than the older generation, but also show that a traditional political participation is valued higher. Youth have more faith in their opportunity to affect political decisions on different decision-levels. A difference in preferred sources for information has also been detected, and youth value Internet higher as a source for information whereas the older generation prefer traditional media.

    A generalized view of the nature of Benefit of Information2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Seeking out and understanding the benefits of information are essential to an organization. Internal in an organization it is important to understand created benefit in order to communicate, prioritize and increase or decrease prioritization in strategically important business areas. In modern society digitalized information is an area that is on the increase in enterprises, as is the knowledge that information is of importance. Therefore there should be a demand for understanding and measuring the beneficial factors that information gives an organization. In this study, empirical material was collected in a literature study from journals highly ranked in the Information Systems Area and with special focus on the benefit of information. The perspective of the study has been intra organizational. The purpose is to derive found benefit factors and use them as a basis to discuss and problematize on the nature of benefit of information and hereby give organizations help to understand this area.

    Approaching the intangible benefits of a boundary object2014Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today´s information society is constantly increasing the quantity of digital information that organisations have access to and depend on. Despite this dependency, few descriptions exist of the benefits which this digital information can provide the organisation with. Examples of what the organisation can use the information for include business intelligence or in a business process. The absence of such benefit descriptions results in missed opportunities in organisational management and a failure to cultivate the artefact. In terms of a practical operational work role, this means that the artefact just exists and that there are no decisions, communication and discussions connected to it. Earlier research about benefits in the Information Systems field is focused on describing the process of finding benefit factors from different IT investments and how these investments can be measured financially. The result of this was that it was only the measurable benefits that were taken into consideration. Later benefit management research has shown interest in the intangible benefit factors as well and added this as an activity in the evaluation process. Today´s view is that the benefit consists both of tangible and intangible benefit factors. This thesis emphasises benefit factors found by means of qualitative research in organisations producing Technical Information (TI). TI isinformation connected to goods and services and is a part of a product. The intangible benefit factors found which are connected to TI are semantic interoperability and knowledge. Semantic interoperability is beneficial both for the organisation and the individuals – in the first case exemplified by a uniform working process and in the second as efficiency in the internal communication. Knowledge also provides benefit both to the organisation and the individuals – the organisation can operate without depending on certain individuals and information gives the individuals mobility in their profession.The next part in the thesis discusses information management´simpact on benefit factors. In the case of an autocratic approach, it is the organisation that benefits most, whereas a decentralised management style provides the individual co-workers with a greater number of benefit factors. This proves that information management is an important and decisive ingredient, and that it affects benefit factors.One step in the direction of converting the intangible benefit factors into tangible ones is to visualise them. In this work the theoreticallens provided by a boundary object has been used. This lens adds a qualitative view on cross-boundary information and has efficiency approaches. These approaches are the syntactical, semantic andpragmatic. Via interpretations from the thesis´s two empirical cases, those approaches are "measured" by interpretations and visualised by the three leaves of a clover. This gives the opportunity to describewhat information efficiency, in this case connected to a positiveexpectation, can contribute to the organisation or the individuals. By this procedure, different cases or time aspects can be compared,thereby providing a basis for decision-making, communication and discussion. Future research in this area can be made in different directions – one is to investigate whether the intangible benefit factors can be turned into measurable ones. In this way, the internal organisation can be provided with better knowledge of the digital information's impact. Another research direction is to investigate how the passage of time affects the benefit factors that digital information gives the organisation.

    Information management, Lean and efficiency:  are we focusing on the customer?2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine what happens with the internal view an organisation has on information management when a holistic view is diminished into a blinkered view and the consequences it conveys for the customer. The customer consequences are divided into two parts – creation of external customers’ values and creation of value for the internal customer explored in terms of efficiency.

    Methodology/approach – Interviews with both outsourced co-workers and project leaders still in the organization.

    Findings – The organisations lack of listening to the external customer affects all three areas lifted in the analysis. The studied organisations have great opportunities for developing their process for producing TI, both regarding their mutual relationship as well as in regards to the external customer with the help of Lean and by applying a more holistic view on the production of Technical Information.

    Keywords – Information management, Lean, Customer value, Technical Information, Efficiency

    Paper type – Case study

    Redesign and Evaluation of a Technology Enhanced Learning Environment for Thesis Supervision2017In: ICERI2017 PROCEEDINGS / [ed] L. Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez and I. Candel Torres, Sevilla, Spain: The International Academy of Technology, Education and Development, 2017, Vol. 10, p. 636-643Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thesis supervision is an important activity in higher education with Bachelor's and Master's theses mandatory parts of university programmes. In traditional education, thesis supervision has been a face-to-face activity, but today, both the student groups and the learning environments are blended. This study describes and discusses the design and implementation of a blended learning environment for a student group at Mid Sweden University.  The research question that the study aims to answer is:  Which are the important factors in the design of a course for undergraduate students, to facilitate supervision of thesis projects in a technology enhanced environment? 

    This study employed a Design science research strategy with three phases for design, implementation and evaluation of a blended learning environment during thesis supervision. For the first phase, design requirements were specified based on document studies and a literature review. In the second phase (first part), the created design requirements were implemented as an instance in the Moodle virtual learning environment. Second phase (second part), the implemented instance was used as the online part of a blended learning course for students writing their Bachelor's thesis. In the third phase an evaluation was carried out with an online questionnaire were students gave their opinions on course design and teaching and learning sessions.

    Findings show that the learning outcomes were good and that the course aim and the learning objectives were clearly stated. Found important factors for a successful supervision were peer collaboration, multimodality, and technology enhanced interaction.  Remaining challenges are to improve course content and to motivate students for research in the field of Informatics. Most surprising positive finding was that peer situation occurred informally, which deepen their knowledge for thesis writing and presentation.

    Exploiting Information: Seeking Long-term Preservation of organisational knowledge2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Long-term preservation of organisational knowledge gives the business opportunities to reuse stored knowledge. This preservation of knowledge is present both in the organisation as such, found explicitly in the organisational stock, and also in the individual workers, implicit in their flow of action. Theoretically have the reuse of knowledge been named organisational memory and also been addressed in knowledge management. In a single case-study of a manufacturing company, the authors study the utilisation of product configuration information (PCI) and its role in meeting requirements on long-time preservation of product-related knowledge. This structured and standardised information is used throughout the organisation, serving as a base for both organisational and individual knowledge for the entire company. Since the information has been used in the same way for decades it is a part of the organisation´s culture and influences structures and procedures connected to the information base. The result of the study implies that usage of PCI grants the individual worker a high degree of task-related freedom as well as intra-organisational mobility. The downside for the individuals is the long time period it takes to get familiar with PCI due to its complexity. For the organisation as such, PCI provides a stable stock of knowledge which is available over extended periods of time, drastically reducing dependence upon individual workers.

    Att tala med tangenterna: En intervjustudie om ungdomars interaktion och identitetsskapande genom sociala medier2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva och analysera hur ungdomar använder och förhåller sig till sociala medier samt hur de uppfattar och reflekterar kring möjligheter och begränsningar i förhållande till sitt identitetsskapande. Vi har genom en kvalitativ forsknings design genomfört semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex ungdomar. Varefter vi noga lyssnat igenom intervjuerna, transkriberat, sammanställt och analyserat resultatet. Vi valde ungdomar för att de är inne i en identitetsskapande ålder samt att de är representativa användare av sociala medier. Resultatet visar att samtliga ungdomar är i någon form beroende av den mediala interaktionen och att detta påverkar identitetsskapandet. Vidare visar också resultatet att det mänskliga mötet är betydande då reaktioner direkt kan tolkas i en så kallad ansikte mot ansikte interaktion.

    Hur unga utlandsfödda invandrare blir bemötta i det svenska samhället.: En kvalitativ och kvantitativ studie om diskriminering och rasism2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning: Ungdomar med utländsk bakgrund har enligt tidigare studier sämre förutsättning i skolan, arbeten och inom rättsväsendet, på grund av diskriminering. Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att ta reda på hur unga utlandsfödda ungdomar blir bemötta i det svenska samhället, samt att se om det finns vissa specifika mönster till varför det uppstår diskriminering i bland annat skolan. Till vår undersökning använde vi oss av teorier om - diskriminering och rasism, som används i analysen av det empiriska materialet. Vår utgångspunkt i uppsatsen har varit att ta reda på varför diskriminering och rasism sker i samhället. Vi hade ett antal frågeställningar som kan ses nedan, som besvarats i arbetet.

    • Hur blir invandrarungdomar bemötta i det svenska samhället utifrån deras etniska bakgrund?
    • Spelar ungdomarnas genus någon roll i hur de blir bemötta i det offentliga samhället?
    • Finns det skillnader mellan ungdomar med olika bakgrund beroende på deras vilken världsdel de kommer ifrån?
    • Påverkar ungdomarnas socioekonomiska och kulturella bakgrund, hur de blir bemötta i det svenska samhället?

           För att besvara dessa frågeställningar, delade vi ut enkäter till 42 ungdomar i en mellan stor stad i åldrarna 16 – 24 år i olika skolor. När resultatet av enkäterna var sammanställda valde vi att ha en fokusgrupp med fyra deltagande som hade deltagit i enkätundersökningen. Syftet med att ha en fokusgrupp var att få en fördjupad kunskap om vissa svar kring rasism och diskriminering. Vårt resultat i studien visade att ungdomar med utländsk bakgrund, blir diskriminerade ute i samhället utav skolan, polisen, socialtjänsten, i affärer, på arbetsplatser samt på andra platser i samhället som till exempel på bussen. Dessa slutsatser stärktes och jämfördes sedan med tidigare forskning i en analysdel, samt en avslutad diskussion.

    Familjebehandlingsarbete med dysfunktionella familjer och med barnet i fokus2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte var att undersöka och förstå vad en dysfunktionell familj är enligt familjebehandlare samt hur familjebehandlingsarbete fungerar med dysfunktionella familjer och med barnet i fokus. Studien är kvalitativ och den datainsamlingsmetod som har använts är semistrukturerade intervjuer. I studien intervjuades fem familjebehandlare. Det empiriska materialet har analyserats genom en innehållsanalys. Studiens resultat är uppdelad i tre olika teman, vilka är definition av en dysfunktionell familj, arbetsmetoder samt barns bästa. I resultatet framkom det att alla familjebehandlarna är överens om att alla familjer som de kommer i kontakt med i sitt dagliga arbete är dysfunktionella familjer. Kortfattat beskriver behandlarna att dysfunktionella familjer är familjer där något inte fungerar som det ska samt där barnet i familjen inte får sina behov tillgodosedda. Vidare i resultatet framkom det att olika typer av samtal med familjer är en mycket central arbetsmetod inom familjebehandling. I resultatet framkom det även att familjebehandlarna inte kommer i kontakt med barnet lika mycket som med föräldrarna i sitt arbete. Familjebehandlarna försöker dock vara medvetna om att det är för barnets skull som de utför sitt arbete samt att de hela tiden arbetar efter barnets behov och inte efter föräldrarnas behov.

    Grannskapets påverkan på gymnasieskolan: En kvalitativ studie om marginaliserade elevers uppleverser av gymnasieskolan och sina förväntningar inför framtida utbildningsmöjligheter2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study intends to review existing correlations between marginalized adolescents and lower school results. This study examines underlying conditions for the current residential segregation in Sweden by applying segregation as a theory adequate to a qualitative study. Residential segregation has generated negative effects on the Swedish school system as a result. Previous research regarding the subject points toward residential segregation as a prime cause for the performance gap within the Swedish school system. It also conditions the qualifications of young adolescents regarding their pursuit of future opportunities. The youth's perception of their school attendance is inspected through an analysis divided into three themes regarding their experiences in relation to their residential areas. This study argues that existing social exclusion processes caused by residential segregation, affect how they perceive their opportunities. A typical disjunct resource allocations on the basis of socioeconomic status characterizes the means that marginalized adolescents possess to pursue their ambitions.
