    Abstract [en]

    How do key personnel un derstand and experience the many public sector reforms? This is at the core of this article, which focuses on the Norwegian Coordination Reform. The article is based on an exploratory indepth study of health care professionals through focus group interviews. Considering the numerous health care re  forms in Norway the last decades, as well as previous empirical and theoretical studies of such reforms, we had expected to find reform fatigue and signs of only superficial adaptation to the reform. In the analyzes of group discussions, however, we find little support for a symbolic adaptation to the reform, and informants express a positive basic attitude to the main ideas of the reform, such as better coordination between hospitals and municipalities and strengthening of expertise at the municipal level. An important exception is the attitude toward the financial incentives, where the informants consistently expressed skepticism. The article thoroughly explains this aspect. The study utilizes a qualitative approach and is based on data collected through eight semistructured focus groups and two individual interviews during winter 2011/2012, where a total of 35 in formants participated.

    What is the Actor in Organizational Institutionalism?2009In: Nordiske organisasjonsstudier, ISSN 1501-8237, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 23-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The actor is found both in the theatre and in the study of ‘the social’. In the sociological study of institutions and organizations (recently named organizational institutionalism) the actor has been considered according to the paradox of embedded agency, suffering the incompatibility of structure andagency. This article focuses on the constitution of the field and its stability in embeddedness. Through the study of writings within organizational institutionalism, a number of perceptions of the actor emerge. Using the idea of the avatar, Erving Goffman’s ideas on interaction and performance, and an internal theoretical distinction between similarity and variation, four avatars of embedded agency are identified in a clarification of distinctions between types of actors. The conclusion is that with a theoretically stringent use of mediator, translator, change agent and entrepreneur, the concept of embedded agency is not a problem or weakness, but rather the strength of organizational institutionalism.

    Abstract [en]

    At the core of this article is neo-institutional theory’s dominance in contemporary organizational research. This theory has, among other things, contributed to the understanding of symbolic and cultural aspects of organizations and their surroundings, and how ideas and concepts travel and translate. At the same time, the theory has been criticized for having unclear concepts of actors and power, and that practical aspects of how ideas travel is undertheorized. As a possible inspiration for neoinstitutional theory, we present institutional ethnography (IE). We argue that IE can give impulses to a deeper understanding of processes of change within contemporary organizations. In particular, we discuss how IE can provide an alternative to the neoinstitutional concepts of travel and translation. This is done through a rich conceptual methodology where the level of actors is utilized in order to understand organizational ideas as part of the ruling relations.

    Abstract [en]

    Reputation management is an important practice for contemporary highereducation institutions. In this article, the viewbooks of 9 Norwegian universitiesand university colleges are analyzed. We find that higher educationinstitutions often communicate a complex, diverse and sometimes evencontradictory profile towards prospective students. Further, we find manysimilarities between the different viewbooks, and a limited degree of sharpdistinctions towards competitors. This is not in line with the dominatingrecommendations of the management literature on the topic, claiming thata strong reputation is built through consistent communication and differentiationvis-à-vis competitors. We ask if the findings signalize an institutionalizationof the image of which characteristics a “good higher educationinstitutions” must possess, limiting the space for reputation building througha more singular and distinct profile. Higher education institutions must payattention to diverse (and often conflicting) goals and values in their reputationmanagement, and incorporate them simultaneously in their communicationto achieve legitimacy.
