Biography

I am a senior lecturer in Management Control and among other things the track coordinator for the Management Controlling track in the Master Programme in Business and Management. I am specifically responsible for the courses Advanced Management Accounting and Controlling with Communication, Values and Culture in this programme. Apart from this master programme I am also involved in a master programme in biotechnology were I give a course in Management Control.

A large part of my research has been focused on the interplay between management control and integration/coordination. In my thesis I studied what effect integration efforts like process orientation has on management control. Theoretically, institutional and cognitive theory were used to explain the effects.Later I have studied management and integration in rehabilitation processes in public organizations. Here the feelings of the actors came in focus and positive organizational theory was used.In the research project that I am part of now we are studying the relationship between corporate governance and management control. To what extent and how does corporate governance and different types of owners influence the management control, and what effects does this have on the organization and its performance?

I work as a freelance editor for Bonnier Ledarskapshandböcker - Ekonomistyrning, which is a handbook with about 600 subscribers in all types of Swedish organisations. I also lead an experience sharing group consisting of about a dozen CFO's and controllers. We meet three times a year and during 24 hours we thoroughly penetrate a specific issue/problem that one of the members experience in his/her current job situation.

I was att the Stockholm School of Economics for twelve years, first as a PhD student and then as a senior lecturer. Among many other things I wrote my thesis during my time at the SSE. Before that I worked with controlling for six years in two Electrolux related companies in the Västervik area. This gave me pracitical experience, something that has been very useful in my teaching and research.
