In 2008 I was invited as one of ten top scholars around the world to contribute with a paper to the inaugural World Entrepreneurship Forum; a high profile policy-research summit. In addition, I have been plenary keynote speaker at a number of national Swedish conferences. Further, I have contributed to the development of the field through my involvement in at least (I have not kept systematic record)

 18 Academy of Management ‘Professional Development Workshops’ (3 as organizer) 1996-2007
 4 Academy of Management ‘New Faculty Consortia’; 2000; 2004; 2006; 2007

 3 Babson/Kauffman Foundation Doctoral Consortia, 2001-7
 A number of ad hoc doctoral consortia in Australia, China, Scotland, Sweden and the US.

Reviewer. Apart from my ‘steady’ appointments with editorial boards I have acted as ad-hoc reviewer for Academy of Management Journal; Strategic Management Journal; Management Science; Journal of Management; Journal of Evolutionary Economics; Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship; Journal of Economic Psychology; Entrepreneurship & Regional Development; International Small Business Journal, and Social Behavior: an International Journal. I was reviewer and co-editor for the Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research (a research annual) in 1996-7, and 2001-2004; for the Academy of Management Entrepreneurship Division in 2003-; for the AGSE Conference 2004-, and for the Family Enterprise Research Conference 2005-6. I have reviewed book proposals and manuscripts for publishers Edward Elgar (UK), SNS (Sweden) Fagbokforlaget (Norwary), as well as previewed and endorsed books published by Elgar (UK), Kluwer (NL) and Quorum Books (US). I have reviewed applications for research grants for major research foundations such as Australian Research Council; The AXA Research Fund; The Research Council of Norway; The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, and Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research. In 2003, 2004 and 2009 I was a reviewer for the “Heizer Award” (dissertation award; Academy of Management).

Government agencies, national and international organizations. I have been called in as consultant and/or been invited to deliver speeches for the OECD, the European Commission, the Royal Swedish Academy for Engineering Sciences (IVA), the Swedish Ministry of Industry, the National Board for Industrial and Technological Development (NUTEK), the Institute for Studies on Growth Policies (ITPS), the Swedish Employers Confederation (SAF) and other trade organizations, regional/local authorities, etc. Most of this has concerned policy development with respect to small and new firms.

Business Consulting. Earlier in my career I did consulting work in the areas of marketing research and marketing strategy for clients such as Televerket (Swedish Telecom), Svenska Valvoline AB, Svenska Canon AB, STORA AB, BNL Information AB, Kirstein & Walerud Management Consultants AB and AB Marknadsforskning. More recently, and closer to my current academic specialization, I have consulted for the Singapore-based university start-up Universitas 21 Global and served on the advisory board for Zenzin Ltd., a London-based Internet service provider (no longer in existence).

Teaching qualifications (not fully updated since 2003)

During my career I have taught on all levels of academic education, and on a number of subject matters. At QUT in 2004-7 I have taught two MBA units (GSN420 New Venture Strategy and GSN431 New Venture Growth and Transitions) and one research unit (GSN234 Contemporary issues in Entrepreneurship Research) at QUT. I have occasionally also taught the capstone MBA unit GSN410, Entrepreneurship. Since 2005 I have annually taught the doctoral class “Entrepreneurship 750: Issues and Developments in the Quantitative Approach to Entrepreneurship Research” (which I also developed) at the University of Louisville, US. In the Spring of 2003 I taught the MBA class “Management of Small Business” at Kasetsart University, Thailand.

At QUT I have taught the following research units: BSN503 Research Seminar and GSN234 Contemporary Issues, as well as parts of BSN503 Research Methodology. The Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) has a sizeable Ph.D. program. Within this program I developed and repeatedly taught classes in Contemporary Entrepreneurship Research, Applied Quantitative Research Methods and Research Analysis. The most recent versions of these courses have been taught in English. I have also been designer and examiner of various customized reading courses for Ph.D. students. During my time in Umeå I developed and taught a doctoral class in Economic Psychology. Apart from this I have presented at doctoral consortia at several international research conferences and made ad hoc presentation to Ph.D. students at various universities in the US, UK and Australia.

Due to system differences JIBS does not have an MBA program in the US sense. However, the last two years of JIBS’ (four year) integrated Master of Science programs are academically as advanced as are MBA programs. Within the M.Sc. program at JIBS I have developed and taught classes in New Venture Development, and Small Business Development. I have also helped develop and/or done parts of the teaching of Entrepreneurship, Creativity & Innovation and Research Methods. All teaching at the advanced levels at JIBS is in English. In addition I have helped develop and taught parts of the first year (undergraduate) course Entrepreneurship and Business Planning. Earlier in my career I have taught Consumer Behavior, Advertising Management, Distribution Channels and Marketing Research at M.Sc. level, as well as basic, undergraduate classes in accounting, cost accounting, marketing and economic psychology,

At JIBS I have done a limited amount of Executive Education – one part of JIBS’ development that has been lagging behind. During my time at the Stockholm School of Economics I developed and taught the marketing part of “Posthögskolan” (a package deal between Stockholm School of Economics and Postverket; the Swedish Postal Services) during a three-year period.

My teaching experience includes a variety of pedagogical approaches such as lecturing, case writing and teaching, teacher-led discussion seminars, student-led discussion seminars, extensive feedback on student’s assignments and self-study, discussion seminars in relation to practitioners’ guest lectures or company visits, computer simulations, etc. JIBS has made a deliberate effort to vary teaching methods and to emphasize problem-based learning.

I have given guest lectures or seminars at the following universities (apart from conference presentations):

Australian National University, Canberra, Australia
Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia
Chalmers Technological University, Göteborg, Sweden
De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
Erasmus University, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Although I have for most of my career held positions heavier on research than on teaching I have in all done the equivalent of several years of full time lecturing. I have given presentations at research conferences and suchlike on 100+ occasions. I have additional pedagogical experience from teaching at primary school; approx. 1100 hours in class during the 1978-1981 period. I have written teaching cases and other educational material (see last part of ‘list of publications’ below).

A fair assessment of my qualities as a teacher is probably that I do very well with Ph.D. students, MBAs and executives, where the participants can give more intellectual and experience-based input to a fruitful, interactive learning experience. With undergraduates I reach well above average, but not award-winning status. The evaluations tend to say that they appreciate this professor’s knowledge of his subject matter, but in this type of group I do not score as highly on entertainment value.

Supervision

The table below summarizes the completed higher degree research students I have supervised. Apart from these I have supervised dozens of (Swedish) Bachelors- and Masters Degree theses. I currently (co-)supervise about eight Ph.D. students in Australia and Sweden.

I currently supervise 4 PhD students at QUT, and also co-supervise 2 PhD students at JIBS.

Administrative and leadership qualifications

From Sep. 2007 I am Assistant Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Business and QUT, Australia. During 2006-7 I initiated and built the faculty-wide “Entrepreneurship & Innovation Cluster” (www.bus.qut.edu.au/research/acbr/eirp), from scratch to a research group with 40+ members and affiliates. 2004-7 I was Research Director at the Brisbane Graduate School of Business, QUT, Australia. These positions entail all aspects of research leadership such as developing strategies, benchmarks and incentives; establishing mechanisms for initiation and development of research grant applications and journal publications; development of enrolment criteria; curriculum; milestones and supervisory support structure for research students, etc.

In 2007 I was elected officer of the Entrepreneurship Division of the Academy of Management. This means that over a five year cycle I will assume the responsibilities of Pre-conference program chair; Program Chair, and Division Chair. In 2003-5 I chaired the Research Committee for the Entrepreneurship Division.

July 2002-June 2004 I was Head of the Department for Entrepreneurship, Marketing and Management (EMM) at JIBS. This involved managerial responsibility for a unit with over 40 people as regards recruiting, coaching and “cultivation” of people as well as financial management, although some aspects of the latter has not been my responsibility (e.g., salary setting). I also held this position temporarily in 1995 for six months during a colleague’s sabbatical.

During 1998-2001 I was program director/research leader for a major, international-collaborative research program, the Program on Entrepreneurship and Growth in SMEs (PEG). This assignment involved management of an activity involving more than twenty people; recruiting and delegating responsibilities to these people, budgetary/financial responsibilities, arranging meetings and international visits, deciding on internal ‘applications’, etc.

I effectively functioned as full professor with all the administrative duties that follow that position since I was first recruited to JIBS in 1994, although the formal appointment as full professor came in 1996. Within the school, I was ‘Subject Area Manager’ for the Entrepreneurship sub-discipline during all of this time, and leader of the EMM section (Entrepreneurship, Marketing & Management) also during an earlier term (spring of 1995). Holding a professorship in a small and growing school also means actively serving on various committees, boards and work-groups internally.

Many other aspects of ‘administrative qualifications’ have already been mentioned above and will here only be repeated in brief:

• leader/joint leader of several major research programs and projects
• co-chair/member of the organizing committee for several international conferences
• department head and board member, TRUM, Umeå
• manuscript editor of two scholarly journals
• editor of books; i.e. co-coordinator of author teams
• member of Executive Committee for major, international research collaboration
• member of Scientific Board, FSF
• supervision of doctoral students
• various more temporary assignments such as conference organization committees

Research qualifications

As shown by the list of publications (below) I have over the years published a large number of journal articles, books and book chapters in respected international outlets for scholarly work. With small excursions into human decision-making and transportation research the vast majority of my work fall within the domains of entrepreneurship and small business.

Within the focus on entrepreneurship my primary characteristics are breadth and an international orientation. I have published contributions that can be classified as empirical, conceptual, and method oriented. My work has departed from economic, psychological, sociological, geographic, and management/organizational theoretical perspectives. I have published in journals with those various orientations and collaborated with researchers with all of these backgrounds. I am also engaged as reviewer and ad hoc outside examiner across the spectrum from psychology, over management to (applied) economics. My research has analyzed entrepreneurial phenomena using the individual, activity, firm, industry, region, and nation as units of analysis. I have published in Swedish, English, German and French, and in journals based in the US, UK, Switzerland, Canada, Belgium, Singapore and Sweden. I have engaged in research collaboration with researchers from Australia, Canada, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, the UK, and the US.

In terms of method most of my work is quantitative, using phone and mail survey data as well as carefully compiled and filtered secondary data sources. I have employed an array of multivariate statistical analysis methods in my research publications, such as regression analysis, logistic regression analysis, discriminant analysis, cluster analysis, factor analysis, conjoint analysis, and structural equations modeling with LISREL and PLS. I have some personal experience from experimental and qualitative research as well, and have supervised Ph.D. students with both of these methodological orientations.

The major projects that I have designed – either myself and with others – and worked with are the following:


In addition, I have published on the basis on other empirical projects than those listed above (e.g., J2, J4, J10, J29, J30, J38) or in the form of conceptual contributions that are indirectly based on insights gained through all of the above (e.g., B5, B6, J19, J20, J25, J32, J33, J35, J36, J37, BC24, BC32, BC33, BC39).

Being involved in the ERC/PSED and other international research collaboration, as well as being in charge of the PEG program, has provided me the privilege of working with many of the best scholars in the field of entrepreneurship, such as Zoltan Acs, Howard Aldrich, Ted Baker, Bill Gartner, Rita Gunther McGrath, Paul Reynolds, Harry Sapienza, Saras Sarasvathy, Scott Shane, David Storey, Johan Wiklund, Mike Wright and Shaker Zahra. It is for others to judge, but it is my hope that this has helped taking my research, and that of my doctoral students, to the very research frontier in entrepreneurship – and hopefully contributed to defining it.

The research work I have undertaken, supervised and reviewed has been given the following awards:

• “Best Reviewer 2010” awarded by the Journal of Business Venturing.

Grants

In Nov. 2005 I received a major ARC Discovery grant, which was the largest in the country in Business & Economics, and the largest across all disciplines at QUT in 205 (AUD 455,000 for a four year project). We have subsequently raised AUD 260,000 (ARC Linkage) and AUD 180,000 (Industry Partners) for an add-on to this project.

The largest external research grant I have received was the SEK 25 million (appr. AUD 4.2 million) received from Knut & Alice Wallenberg’s Foundation in 1998 for the first three years of the Program on Entrepreneurship and Growth in SMEs (PEG). Behind the application were professors Leif Melin, Leif Lindmark, and myself. During my time at JIBS (1994-) I received other external research grants for approximately AUD 4 million (from the Hamrin Foundation, the Wallenberg Foundation, The Council for Work Life Research, Ruben Rausing’s Foundation, the “Sparbanksstiftelsen”, the “Handelsbankens Forskningsstiftelser”, and others). Some of these have been shared with 1-2 other full professors at JIBS. Prior to my time at JIBS my research activities were to a large extent covered by external research grants that I had received either by myself or together with other scholars.

Citations

On ISI/Web of Science my works collectively have over 650 citations. On Google Scholar I have 19 publications with more than 50 citations each and a total of more than 2,500 citations. Further on Web of Science [Google Scholar – some entries hard to find/assess due to partly incorrect info] my articles rank as follows compared to other articles published in the same outlets (July 2008):

- My two articles in the leading North-American journal, Journal of Business Venturing, in 2003 are ranked 1st [1st] and 8th [4th] for JBV articles that year, whereas my 1989 and 1991 JBV articles rank 6th [5th] and 4th [4th] in their respective years.
- My two articles in 2001 in the second ranked North-American entrepreneurship journal, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, rank shared 1st [1st] (J18) and shared 7th [7th] (J19) for citations that year. The articles in this special issue, which I co-edited, occupy rank 1-5 and 7-8 for ETP article citations in 2001 according to Google Scholar. My 2003 article in the same journal ranks 8th [6th] that year.
- Out of my other articles in ISI-listed North-American journals, my 2002 SBEJ article achieves a 6th [4th] rank and my 2002 and 2003 JSBM articles rank 5th [5th] and 19th [6th].
- My articles in the leading European specialty journal, ERD, in 1990, 1995, and 2000 articles rank 5th [10th], 3rd [2nd] and 3rd [1st] for citations in their respective years.
- Outside of specialty journals, my 1994 Regional Studies manuscript is the 5th [5th] most cited in that journal that year, out of close to 100 published articles.

It should be noted that until relatively recently entrepreneurship research typically has not attracted large numbers of citations because of the limited size of the research community and many research outlets not being captured by traditional citation count facilities.
