    Smärta, skönhet och sociomaterialitet: En intervju med Dag Østerberg om begreppen form, förändring och socialitet2009In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 46, no 3, p. 5-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pain, beauty, and socio-matter. An interview with Dag Østerberg concerning the concepts of form, process, and sociality.

    Professor Dag Østerberg (born 1938) is one of the most prominent Nordic sociologists and the author of many influential books. In this interview he discusses the concept of form in sociology and social thinking and relates it not only to change, but to sociality, pain, beauty, and socio-matter as well. In order to contextualise Østerberg’s discussion, the interview is prefaced by a brief introduction to the traditional understanding of form as related to matter and content.

    Abstract [sv]

    "Det sociala" tillhör de begrepp som samhällsvetenskapen utgår från men sällan känner något behov av att förklara. Ofta är socialiteten den samhällsvetenskapliga praktikens utgångspunkt och mål, men dess innebörd kan inte fastställas utan att överskrida gränserna till t.ex. filosofi, historia och religion. Kanske är avsaknaden av en kontinuerlig reflektion över det socialas innebörd rent av ett försvar av det samhällsvetenskapliga fältet. I denna bok diskuterar tio samhällsvetare och humanister det socialas betydelse från Immanuel Kant till Slavoj Zizek. Det handlar om tio sätt att tänka kring det sociala, om tio sociologiker. Detta skulle kunna tolkas som att det sociala är det objekt bokens olika bidrag behandlar ur respektive perspektiv. Men det kan också ges en snävare tolkning. Det verkliga objektet för undersökningarna blir då själva relationen mellan det sociala och vetandet. Med detta synsätt kan det sociala inte uppfattas som ett neutralt eller autonomt faktum utanför tänkandet. Snarare blir socialiteten något som framträder först i vetandets konkreta gränsdragningar och skillnadsskapanden. Denna bok är ett mångbottnat bidrag till diskussionen om vad samhället är och om möjligheterna att förändra det.

    Explanation and causal reasoning: a contribution to the interpretation of competing explanatory claims2013In: Theory & psychology, ISSN 0959-3543, E-ISSN 1461-7447, Vol. 23, no 6, p. 701-715Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to attain a better understanding of the relationship between competing or complementary scientific explanatory claims. First, six different ways of approaching explanatory claims are briefly described and found, in part, to be unsatisfactory. It is argued that they should be supplemented by an analysis of underlying and sometimes partly unacknowledged causal presuppositions. This approach could be termed a causal analytical investigation, and in order to demonstrate its potential, it is applied to a concrete example: research into dental anxiety. The analysis shows that seemingly competing or complementary explanatory claims here neither compete with nor complement each other; instead, the analysis demonstrates that they explain different things. We then broaden the picture by discussing the relationship between aetiology and treatment. Finally we argue in favour of the general applicability of the approach and its relevance to science in general and to science-based practice.

    Low anthropometric measures and mortality: results from the Malmö Diet and Cancer Study2015In: Annals of Medicine, ISSN 0785-3890, E-ISSN 1365-2060, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 325-331Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim. To study the association between anthropometric measures: body mass index (BMI), percent body fat, waist circumference (WC), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), waist-to-height ratio (WHtR), waist-to-hip-to-height ratio (WHHR), and A Body Shape Index (ABSI); to see if individuals in the lowest 5 percentiles for these measures have an increased risk of mortality.

    Methods. A population-based prospective cohort study ( 10,304 men and 16,549 women), the Malmo Diet and Cancer study (MDC), aged 45-73 years.

    Results. During a mean follow-up of 14 +/- 3 years, 2,224 men and 1,983 women died. There was a significant increased mortality risk after adjustments for potential confounders in the group with the 5% lowest BMI ( referent 25%-75%); hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals were 1.33 (1.10-1.61) for women and 1.27 (1.07-1.52) for men. A similar significant increased mortality risk was seen with the 5% lowest percent body fat, HR 1.31 (1.07-1.60) for women and 1.25 (1.04-1.50) for men. Women with an ABSI in the lowest 5 percentiles had a lower mortality risk HR 0.64 (0.48-0.85).

    Conclusion. These results imply that BMI or percent body fat could be used to identify lean individuals at increased mortality risk.

    Praktikdriven teori – mot en ny interaktiv forskningsstrategi2008In: Gemensamt kunskapande – den interaktiva forskningens praktik / [ed] Johannisson, Bengt; Gunnarsson, Ewa; Stjernberg, Torbjörn, Göteborg: Växjö University Press, Acta Wexionensia, Nr 149/2008, Intellecta Docusys, , 2008, p. 311-333Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idén om interaktiv forskning innebär att kommunikation och interaktion ska ske med personer som innehar god, praktiskt utvecklad kunskap. Följer vi denna grundidé bör det vara naturligt att kunniga praktiker, som träder in i den akademiska världen, lika-ledes utnyttjar sin förtrogenhet för att skapa ett högkvalitativt bidrag. Detta bidrag diskuterar två viktiga aspekter på interaktiv forskning. (1) Hur personer med välutvecklad, praktisk erfarenhet framgångsrikt kan genomföra självständig forsk-ning inom, eller i nära anslutning till, den personliga erfarenhetsdomänen. (2) Hur denna nya forskningsstrategi även kan utveckla de traditionella forskningsuppläggen.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we explore the thesis that a threat to the vital interest of an entity, be it an individual or a group, will lead to forms of increased productivity. We argue for the hypothesis: Because threat was prevalent in the Hawthorne experiments, a closedown perspective is relevant for recontextualizing the Hawthorne Effect. We are able to provide refined and extended findings which are relevant to the productivity development under extreme conditions. Adding these findings to earlier knowledge, deepen our understanding of the Hawthorne experiments.

    Closedowns and the End of Restricted Work Practices2011In: Personnel review, ISSN 0048-3486, E-ISSN 1758-6933, Vol. 41, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: To explore and analyse how shifting frontiers of control emerge and changes the labour process so that restrictions to output become diminished, subsequently affecting organisational performance. Research design: Multiple case study design. Interviews with 104 respondents. Analysis of productivity statistics in order to test for the statistical significance of the closedown effect. Single multiple regression analysis of the comparative strength, of the closedown effect, between cases. Findings: Shifting frontiers of control arise during the closedown process, an control system characterised by markedly unrestricted autonomy for the workers as the management frontiers of control abate. This provides an operative space for informal work practices, innovation and emerging new industrial relations, accounting for the higher levels of output. Research limitations/implications: A multiple case study of three different manufacturing organizations, with comparably long closedown periods. We do not analyse the sustainability of the increase in output or the generalizibility of the closedown effect to other industries. Practical implications: It is possible to anticipate improved productivity if shifting frontiers of control are rapidly replacing the old. If management abandons the old control mechanisms, previous to the closedown decision, and provides operative space for workers? initiatives and informal leadership during the closedown process, it is possible to expect good performance, enabling a scope for extended closedown periods. Originality/value: This is the first study that analyses the comparative strength of the closedown effect and how restricted work practices change under the process of closedown.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper aims to explore and analyse how shifting frontiers of control emerge and change the labour process so that restrictions to output become diminished, subsequently affecting organisational performance.

    Design/methodology/approach: Multiple case study design. Interviews with 104 respondents. Analysis of productivity statistics in order to test for the statistical significance of the closedown effect. Single multiple regression analysis of the comparative strength, of the closedown effect,between cases.

    Findings: Shifting frontiers of control arise during the closedown process, a control system characterised by markedly unrestricted autonomy for the workers as the management frontiers of control abate. This provides an operative space for informal work practices, innovation and emerging new industrial relations, accounting for the higher levels of output.

    Research limitations/implications: A multiple case study of three different manufacturing organisations, with comparably long closedown periods. The authors do not analyse the sustainability of the increase in output or the generalisibility of the closedown effect to other industries.

    Practical implications: It is possible to anticipate improved productivity if shifting frontiers of control are rapidly replacing the old. If management abandons the old control mechanisms, previous to the closedown decision, and provides operative space for workers’ initiatives and informal leadership during the closedown process, it is possible to expect good performance, enabling a scope for extended closedown periods.

    Originality/value: This is the first study that analyses the comparative strength of the closedown effect and how restricted work practices change under the process of closedown.

    A holistic approach to the productivity paradox2007In: Human Systems Management, ISSN 0167-2533, E-ISSN 1875-8703, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 85-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Both the public and private sectors have since the 1980s relentlessly cut the size of their workforces. The downsizing has regularly been reported to lead to closure of a whole or a part of a corporation or organization. Some studies which have analyzed the closures have reported that remarkable, counterintuitive improvements in labor productivity occurred during the time-period between the closure announcement and the final working day. Testing an elaborated cybernetic model on a Swedish case study, and on an exploratory basis, this paper proposes a holistic approach to generate a better understanding of this phenomenon. The main holistic pattern is a new order where management control is replaced by more “Self-management” on the plant level, and very strong psychological reactions based on feelings of unfairness.

    Both the public and private sectors have since the 1980s relentlessly cut the size of their workforces. Often this downsizing has been manifest in the closure of a whole or part of an organisation. Some studies which have analysed the closure process have reported remarkable, counterintuitive improvements in labour productivity during the period between the closure announcement and the final day. Drawing on case study evidence, this paper reviews the criteria used to differentiate between closures and constructs an analytical framework integrating different levels of analysis in order to increase understanding of the phenomena.

    Strange days indeed: understanding the productivity paradox when firms close2006In: 21st century work: high road or low road?

    Abstract [en]

    Both the public and private sectors have since the 1980s relentlessly cut the size of their workforces. The downsizing has regularly been reported to lead to closure of a whole or a part of a corporation or organization. Some studies which have analysed the closure process have reported remarkable, counterintuitive improvements in labor productivity during the period between the closure announcement and the final working day. Testing an elaborated cybernetic model on a Swedish case study, and on an exploratory basis, this paper proposes a holistic approach to generate a better understanding of this phenomenon. The main holistic pattern is a new order where management control is replaced by more “Self-management” on the plant level, and very strong psychological reactions based on feelings of unfairness.

    En svensk `flexicurity-modell´ i omstruktureringar2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det har framkommit i den vetenskapliga debatten att den danska flexicurity-modellen skapar en hög grad av rörlighet på arbetsmarknaden jämfört med den relativa inflexibilitet som finns i den svenska modellen. Scania-modellen 2005-2008 illustrerar att flexibiliteten i den svenska modellen kan öka genom en organisatorisk flexicurity. Vi analyserar förutsättningarna för en svensk flexicurity-modell för omstruktureringar. En svensk flexicurity-modell i omstruktureringar som bygger på proaktiva insatser från tre parter, har potential att skapa lika hög brygga som Scaniamodellen gav, d v s en 80-90 procent överbryggning av det som annars hade blivit arbetslöshetsöar.
