    • 27 days of managerial work in the police service 

      Karp, Tom; Filstad, Cathrine; Glomseth, Rune (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-09)
      The purpose of this study was to uncover the realities of managerial work in the Norwegian police service. Observation and interview of 27 police managers showed that managerial work emerged and unfolded through specific practices, which occurred within a shared organisational practice shaped by police culture, context and mission. Managers practiced in a variety of ways rather than according to a ...
    • Adoption of alternative fuel vehicles: Influence from neighbors, family and coworkers 

      Jansson, Johan; Pettersson, Thomas; Mannberg, Andrea; Brännlund, Runar; Lindgren, Urban (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-07)
      During the last years, many governments have set targets for increasing the share of biofuels in the transportation sector. Understanding consumer behavior is essential in designing policies that efficiently increase the uptake of cleaner technologies. In this paper we analyze adopters and non-adopters of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs). We use diffusion of innovation theory and the established ...
    • Aktive turister gir verdier 

      Prebensen, Nina Katrine (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2013-06-20)
      Reiselivsnæringen i Norge forteller at turistene bruker mindre penger. Undersøkelser viser at turistene synes Norge er ensformig, kjedelig, og dyrt. Hva gjør norgesferien variert, spennende og verdifull? Hva gir valuta for pengene? Det å forstå hvordan verdier skapes i opplevelsesbransjene er grunnleggende for økt lønnsomhet, konkurransekraft og bærekraftighet. Opplevelsesindustrien blir i stor ...

      Bertheussen, Bernt Arne (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2011-12-27)
    • The all-pay auction with cross-shareholdings 

      Clark, Derek J.; Konrad, Kai A.; Riis, Christian (Working paper; Arbeidsnotat, 2007-02)
      We consider an all-pay auction between several firms under asymmetric information in which each firm owns a share in its rival. We characterize the equilibrium and show how much these cross-shareholdings serve to dampen competition. Additionally, we explain why the well known relationship between the equilibrium strategies of the standard first price and all-pay auctions breaks down in our setting.
    • An Analysis of a Semelparous Population Model with Density-Dependent Fecundity and Density - Dependent Survival Probabilities. 

      Wikan, Arild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-17)
      A discrete age-structured semelparous Leslie matrix model where density dependence is included both in the fecundity and in the survival probabilities is analysed. Depending on strength of density dependence, we show in the precocious semelparous case that the nonstationary dynamics may indeed be rich, ranging from SYC (a dynamical state where the whole population is in one age class only) dynamics ...
    • An analysis of Discrete stage-structured prey and prey-predator population models. 

      Wikan, Arild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-04-16)
      Discrete stage-structured prey and prey-predator models are considered. Regarding the former, we prove that the models at hand are permanent (i.e., the population will neither go extinct nor exhibit explosive oscillations) and, moreover, that the transfer from stability to nonstationary behaviour always goes through a supercritical Neimark−Sacker bifurcation.The prey model covers species that ...
    • Analyzing the returns of the first transaction satisfaction on intention to purchase and willingness to pay: Evidence for new food products 

      Tudoran, Ana Alina; Olsen, Svein Ottar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-12-22)
      The present study sheds light on the kind of relationships that link first transaction consumer satisfaction (CS), purchase intention (PI), and willingness to pay (WTP) for new food products. The article presents a comparative evaluation of linear and nonlinear quadratic and cubic specifications used to assess the relationships involved. The study uses empirical evidence from three product-testing ...
    • Aquaculture-fisheries interactions 

      Mikkelsen, Eirik (Working paper; Arbeidsnotat, 2006-02)
      Assuming externalities from aquaculture to fisheries, we use a Verhulst-Schaefer model of fish population-dynamics and production, coupled with an aquaculture production model, to investigate effects on open-access and rent-maximising fisheries. Externalities are modelled by letting carrying capacity, intrinsic growth rate or catchability coefficient in the fishery depend on aquaculture production. ...
    • The art of untangling: High North SME board directors' challenges in understanding strategy, control, and service tasks 

      Fjellvær, Hilde; Olsen, Trude Høgvold; Solstad, Elsa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Boards of directors represent an important, but understudied, resource for business development of High North SMEs. We studied board director perceptions of what constitutes the most important board tasks and which activities each major task actually involved. We followed a local board development project with participants from several industries and companies in Northern Norway over a two-year ...
    • Aspects of a knowledge theory for new venture creation: Management, policy and methodological implications

      The problem studied is related to new venture creation. The question the authors will examine here is: What are the knowledge conditions for new venture creation? The methodology used is conceptual generalization. The purpose of the paper is to bring new understandings to venture creation. In attempting to answer the research question, the authors hope to make a contribution to a policy for ...
    • Attitudes and intentional reactions towards mariculture development - local residents' perspective 

      Armbrecht, John; Skallerud, Kåre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-22)
      Aquaculture (i.e., farming of aquatic organisms, including fish, molluscs, crustaceans, and aquatic plants) is playing an increasingly important role in the global food supply. The contribution of aquaculture to total fish production has risen steadily, reaching 44% in 2014 (Moffitt and Cajas-Cano, 2014). The future growth of aquaculture is expected to help accomplish the Sustainable Development ...
    • Attribute importance segmentation of Norwegian seafood consumers:The inclusion of salient packaging attributes 

      Olsen, Svein Ottar; Tuu, Ho Huu; Grunert, Klaus G. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-06-29)
      The main purpose of this study is to identify consumer segments based on the importance of product attributes when buying seafood for homemade meals on weekdays. There is a particular focus on the relative importance of the packaging attributes of fresh seafood. The results are based on a representative survey of 840 Norwegian consumers between 18 and 80 years of age. This study found that taste, ...
    • Bargaining with asymmetric externalities 

      Pereau, Jean Christophe; Clark, Derek J. (Working paper; Arbeidsnotat, 2007-02)
      We consider sequential bargaining between three firms that are all essential in creating a surplus. One of the firms is dominant in the sense that it ultimately decides whether the surplus will be created. The other firms have an incentive to get a large share of the pie for themselves, but leaving enough for the dominant firm that it finds it profitable to create the surplus. Hence, the smaller ...
    • Bosmanfellah 

      Bertheussen, Bernt Arne (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2012-03-23)
      Egenutvikling av spillere er god latin, men hvis ungdommene forlater klubbene gratis ved endt kontraktstid, slik stortalentet Mohammed Fellah i Vålerenga ønsker, settes klubbøkonomien sjakk matt igjen.
    • The Bumpy Road of Demand Growth—An Application to Atlantic Salmon 

      Brækkan, Eivind Hestvik; Thyholdt, Sverre Braathen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-10-16)
      We measure demand growth for all salmon-importing regions of the world using an index approach for the 2002–2011 period. Our results demonstrate that there are substantial variations in demand growth by region and over time. Russia and Brazil exhibit the highest demand growth, with average annual growth rates of approximately 20%. More established markets, such as the United States and Japan, ...
    • Business Models and Sustainability in Nature Tourism: A Systematic Review of the Literature 

      Sahebalzamani, Samira; Bertella, Giovanna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-10)
      This study explores the business model literature within nature tourism, focuses on its sustainability-related aspects, and adopts some of the results of the literature review by Reinhold et al. The research questions concern how scholars use and operationalize the business model concept in the context of nature tourism, and to what extent sustainability-related aspects are included and discussed. ...

      Tuu, Huy Ho; Olsen, Svein Ottar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The purpose of this paper is to examine the roles of perceived certainty, manipulated risk and knowledge in the satisfaction-purchase intention relationship in the context of a new product evaluation. This study uses a 2×2 factorial design with 120 participants and a combination of methods to test hypotheses. The respondents of low-risk as well as high-knowledge groups report a higher purchase ...
    • Changes in the power balance of institutional logics: Middle managers' responses 

      Olsen, Trude Høgvold; Solstad, Elsa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-26)
      The purpose of this paper is to explore how middle managers respond when an existing institutional logic is reinforced through radical organisational change. We analyse documents and interviews with middle managers in three public sector contexts (hospitals, upper secondary schools, municipal agencies) in which the power balance between the managerial and professional logics changed through mergers. ...
