My research mainly focuses on leadership and management in professional service organizations. Current interests include leadership in situations of diffuse authority, the professionalization of teachers, and the role of institutional logics in everyday organizing. Part of this is presented in my book 4 myter om professionella organisationer (Lund: Studentlitteratur; in Swedish). I am at this time conduction a three year study of the Swedish 'first teacher reform'.

Moreover, I have an interest in academic writing and recently published a handbook on the topic: Skriva uppsats med kvalitativ metod (Stockholm: Liber; in Swedish). Moreover, I (together with Tommy Jensen) recently published a major textbook in organization theory (Organisation; Lund: Studentlittertur, in Swedish).
