Personal profile


My interest is in HRM, management, organization and  competency development  as well as digitization. This interest has emerged through many years of management experience within both the public and private sectors. My research and teaching draw energy and inspiration from this practical experience.


 Examples of  my research topics in recent years:

  • How new forms of knowledge are challenging new public management (NPM)
  • What is at stake when transferring successful methods and practices from one context to another (organizational, social and cultural), and how to take contextual issues into consideration.
  • How trust is challenged, developed and learned during major paradigmatic changes – as e.g. when the principles of public NPM management are changing.
  • How HRM's transition towards a reflexive business paradigm is observed and articulated in different research environments, and how to see the different perspectives within the framework of Luhmann's systems theory. 


  • Management, Organization, Business economy and administration, Management and organization of industry, trade, and communication
