Background

I´ve worked in the manufacturing industry with human resources, organizational development, quality and Lean. I´ve also held a number of leadership positions in both the private sector and in academia.

Area of interest

My research focuses on how organizations can work to create, and how they can measure, a culture which provides opportunities for long-term, sustainable quality development. My focus is on behaviors, values and leadership. I have to some extent focused on the quality initiative Lean.

Current research

Since 2015 I´m a part of the research project "Simply Lean" a project funded by the Knowledge Foundation to explore how quality can be enhanced in Swedish businesses by developing an internal coaching model to support value-based leadership. A leadership that integrates values, organizational culture, customer needs and sustainable development. The three-year project is a research and development partnership between three Swedish manufacturing companies and Mid Sweden University.

Teaching and tutoring

Teaches at our Master's program "Quality Management and Leadership" where I also supervise Master theses.

Other information

I work a great deal with cooperation and commissioned education. I´m currently involved in an assignment with Åre municipality where we educate both leaders and coaches in Lean and quality development. I´m also the regional leader for our region in the national initiative "Produktionslyftet".
