    Market places and the city: mutualistic symbiosis for a sustainable development2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is first, to describe the role of market places in a Swedish context, second, to investigate how could market places catalyze sustainable development in a city located in a Swedish context, and third to analyze which are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats involved, that could facilitate or obstruct the influence of market places in the process of sustainable development in the context of a city in the Swedish context.

    As some municipalities already started to do in the European context, market halls can be restored or some new ones can be built as vibrant centres of activity, which would complement the city centre and along with other facilities become one of the hot-spots on a city’s or town’s map as scholars point out. Constantly reinventing themselves, market places still keep some of their initial features that generated sustainable design through history. Nowadays, apart from market places for food, new types of markets appear on the niche, but which, as the old market places, generate sustainable development in the city in a different interpretation.

    Reviewing the literature will provide a base for the research which will be further tested using a case-study strategy to answer the research question: How can market places catalyze sustainable development in a mutualistic symbiosis with the city in a Swedish context? In biology, when being in a symbiotic mutualistic relationship, two organisms of different species co-exist, each benefiting from the activity of the other (Reese, 2013: 190).The market place and the city could develop a symbiotic relationship, in which, both influence mutually towards a sustainable outcome.

    After the research identifies and tests how could market places influence the four spheres of sustainable development in the city, a SWOT analysis is conducted to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that could facilitate or obstruct the influence of market places in the process of sustainable development in a city.

    The research will be relevant by adding to the previous studies, offering an understanding on how market places could influence in this manner and adding to the gap identified in the literature.

    The research was carried out using semi-structured and unstructured interviews, observation and secondary data sources.

    Modell för att identifiera kritiska framgångsfaktorer vid expansion: En fallstudie på Infranord AB2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Business expansion and critical success factors are two subjects researchers have studied diligently. It exists several methods and analytical tools to explore these topics in more detail, however, separated from each other. Furthermore, it exists today no established model that has empirical support to identify the critical success factors in business expansion. The purpose of this paper is therefore to develop a general model for the identification and ranking of critical success factors for business expansion, which is also applicable for many different industries. This master thesis answers which the critical success factors are for project-based companies during business expansion in a resource-dependent market. In order to collect empirical data, a case study on Infranord AB has been conducted, which is a Swedish railway contractor that operates in a resource-dependent market. Infranord AB's home market is in Sweden and this master thesis has studied their expansion to the Norwegian railway market. The collection of data has been done through a literature study, seventeen interviews with employees at Infranord AB and a questionnaire, which was sent out to carefully selected individuals within the company. This master thesis presents a theoretical framework that builds on existing research, and is complemented by a resource dependency perspective. Furthermore, this master thesis consists of three levels of analysis: firm, industry and macro level. The framework further describes how the collection of empirical data has been done and also how the developed general model considers how empirical data should be collected in order to enable the identification of critical success factors in business expansion. This master thesis’s conclusions are that the developed general model is practically useful in other industries. It is also the first model produced that combines the areas of business expansion and critical success factors. The implication of this is particularly important when current research has not dealt with this. Finally, the paper presents a proposal for future work, which is to carry out more case studies according to the presented general model on other companies that are expanding in a resource-dependent market in order to strengthen the level of the model’s universal applicability. This master thesis is delimited is business expansion in a home region.
