Article
Purpose The purpose of this study is to empirically test how problem-solving lean practices, along with leaders as learning facilitators in an action learning approach, can be transferred from a production context to a knowledge work context for the purpose of becoming a learning organization while enhancing performance. This is important to study...
Article
The purpose of this paper is to propose a performance measurement framework to evaluate Lean Supply Chain Management (LSCM) performance. A literature review was performed to identify the main goals and performance indicators in LSCM. A questionnaire was designed that included the identified goals and measures. Next, based on data collected from int...

The empirically related psychopathologies of stress and depression exact an enormous economic toll and have many physical and behavioral health effects. Most studies of the effects of stress and depression focus on their causes and consequences for a single, focal individual. We examine the extent to which depression, as indicated by filling antide...
Article
The article describes the experiences of LINAK, a manufacturing company basedin Denmark, that uses value stream costing and activity-based costing in tandem.
Article
Full-text available
Purpose This paper investigates how manufacturers can develop a learning-to-learn capability for enabling Industry 4.0 adoption. Design/methodology/approach This research design is guided by our research question: How can manufacturers develop a learning-to-learn capability that enables Industry 4.0 adoption? The authors adopt action research to g...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we study how organizational members’ perceptions of the enabling use of performance measures is increased when the case company adopted lean principles in one of its production-support departments. The theory of enabling formalization is applied to gauge and understand the extent to which organizational members perceive performance m...
Article
The first purpose of this research is to study how and whether the joint use of lean production, value stream costing and accounting performance measures contribute to performance. Comparing a first-order and second-order structural equation model with survey data from 368 American production facilities, we find that lean production and management...
Conference Paper
The purpose of this paper is to propose a performance measurement framework to evaluate lean supply chain management (LSCM) performance. A literature review has been performed to identify the main objectives and performance indicators in LSCM. After a pretest of the initial elements, a Delphi study involving academics and practitioners has been car...
Article
Purpose This paper aims to extend the understanding of how real options reasoning (ROR) is associated with downside risk and how a firm’s portfolio (explore and exploit) of investment activities affects managers’ ability to effectively apply ROR in relation to downside risk. Design/methodology/approach The survey method is used. It is applied to a...
Article
Full-text available
This study presents empirical evidence for the ongoing discussion about the link between Lean Management (LM) and industry 4.0 (I4.0) by exploring a non-technical perspective on how manufacturers can capitalize on their technological investments. The paper, therefore, studies the link between LM and I4.0 from a learning organization (LO) perspectiv...
Article
Purpose This paper aims to study the relations between lean operations, lean principles in finance functions and the roles of finance functions. Design/methodology/approach The paper uses structural equation modeling to analyze data from 408 different firms in the Danish production and services sectors. A dyadic approach is applied, as a sub-sampl...
Article
Full-text available
This paper develops novel test formulas able to test performance effects from balancing control forms in management control systems using the notion of complementarity. Extant research has underlined the importance of researching and understanding complementarity effects stemming from multiple control forms—i.e., management control systems. In conf...
Article
This study presents empirical evidence that the increased enabling use of standard variable costing (SVC) increases performance, and decreases the level of goal-incongruent behaviour in a lean production context. This enabling use is examined by the application of the framework of enabling formalization, characterized by; repair, internal transpare...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to study management control mechanisms (social, behavioral, and output control mechanisms) and their complementary effects on firm performance in lean manufacturing firms. Design/methodology/approach The study uses second-order structural equation modeling to analyze survey data from 368 different lean manufa...
Book
Full-text available
Bogen består af 19 kapitler med fokus på økonomistyring. Indholdet spænder fra kapitler om de virksomheds- og samfundsmæssige betingelser for at styre virksomheder over økonomistyringens teknikker til kapitler om økonomistyringens rolle i praksis og som forskningsfelt. Kapitlerne er skrevet af førende forskere og giver tilsammen et billede af centr...
Article
Full-text available
The primary objective of this paper is to research and test how control forms function and perform in a Lean organization. In the present quantitative case study, we provide statistical support that Lean is a set of multiple control forms (output, behavioral, and social controls) that complement each other to enhance performance, i.e., it is a cont...
Article
Full-text available
Based on three case studies, a new Lean financial model is developed. This new model improves the organization by increasing Lean goal congruent behavior. The new financial (costing) model uses the waste categories known from Lean in order to create decision information for Lean decisions such as where to focus activities. The three case studies th...

Project
The overall objective of this Industrial PhD project, which is made together with Velux, is to develop existing lean management (LM) capabilities further to utilise industry 4.0 (I4.0) technologies, and by this overcoming current barriers for unlocking higher levels of performance without regressing to previously fluctuating performance patterns. A commercial success criterion of the PhD project is to develop and test an integrated LM/I4.0 capability building framework operationalised by a scalable action learning program.
