Good Nordic management practices

State of the art

The project identified good Nordic management practices by analysing Nordic research on management, working conditions, and productivity. The project identified 2760 publications combining these topics and analysed in detail 38 core publications combining all three topics. The main findings were:1. Nordic research that combine all three topics is limited in extend but broad in content and therefore fragmented2. Values related to cooperation and participation permeated the publications, which sets them apart from EU and US publications.3. The core publications identified positive relations between management practices, working conditions and workplace performance4. Positive management practices are characterised by dialogue and cooperation between managers and subordinates.The research was conducted in 2012-2014 at Aalborg University, SINTEF, VTT, and Karlstad University.

Hide / Show Abstract

Nordic research on leadership and management can be studied in a variety of ways. Customary approach is to make a review of research publications’ full contents and results. Due to amount of work involved full review is recommendable, though, only when the number of publications is relatively limited. Robust exclusion criteria and other limiting factors are critical in this approach. The exclusion-focused approach has been used elsewhere in this project to analyse national leadership and management tradition in Nordic countries.
