Research

Olof Brunninge´s research interests lie in the areas of strategic management, organisational identity and self-understanding, corporate governance, family businesses, and social memory in organisations. His doctoral thesis is based on extensive case-studies of Handelsbanken and Scania, two highly successful Swedish multinationals. The thesis shows how the self-understanding of the two organisations has contributed to the maintenance of institutional integrity during periods of change. By purposefully relating to their organisational history, Scania and Handelsbanken have succeeded in maintaining a sense of continuity in their strategy processes. Currently, Olof Brunninge is conducting a research project investigating how firms conduct initiatives aiming at formulating, implementing and developing their core values.
