Professor in Business Administration. Engaged in research and teaching in the subject of public organisation.
My research relates to public organisations. It is about collaboration between organisations, teamwork between professions, management of large organisations and leadership in challenging contexts. I have studied multi-professional healthcare teams, how healthcare is managed by orders and what happens when rescue services, police and ambulance services practise collaborations. The research, done together with Professor Eric Carlström, has resulted in a new training model called Three Level Collaboration (3NS). The exercise model is used in crisis and disaster exercises, both nationally and internationally.
From 2017-2020, I will conduct a research project on how and why public organisations bring back previously outsourced jobs to their own organisation (backsourcing). The research project is funded by the Swedish Research Council.
