Inspirational seminar at Solstrand

FOCUS CiBiViCi recently gathered all researchers in the project to Solstrand to present and discuss the ongoing research.

There were a total of 12 presentations from the researchers in the project including: 

  • Sharing in professional service firms: A review of enablers, inhitors and outcomes by Inger N. Basker
  • Near and far: the effects of servant leadership across distance by Alexander M. Sandvik 
  • Sending tasks abroad: the emergence of organizational grandmothers while offshorning services by Julie S. Ågnes
  • Sensemaking and sensegiving of the corporate values of a Norwegian IT company in a subsidiary in India by Annelise Ly and Therese Sverdrup.

The projects, papers and presentations were reviewed with a critical look, and the participants provided constructive input aiming to contribute to further developing ideas and research in CiBiViCi.

Inger Nordli Basker is currently enrolled in the PhD programme in FOCUS CiBiViCi. She was the first one to present her ongoing research, and she received feedback from both the young and the more experienced researchers.
- The seminar at Solstrand is a great initative! As a relatively young researcher, I found the seminars helpful for the development of my own dissertation. In particular, I benefitted from getting constructive and valuable feedback on my work, and I left Solstrand with several ideas and inputs to consider. Moreover, the seminar was a great opportunity to learn about the different stages of research from more experienced researchers, and getting inspired by their exciting projects. Additionally, the combination of academic and social activities really ties us together as a research group. I hope the seminar becomes an annual event for FOCUS CiBiViCi.

The leader of CiBiViCi, Per Heum, was also pleased with the seminar.
- I think it was a successful gathering for both the young and the experienced researchers. Seminars like this is important for the researchers in order to gain an overview of the ongoing research in the project. Furthermore, it created a social arena through joint meals and enjoyment alongside the academic program. This is valuable for both the learning environment at Solstrand, and the positive working environment it creates when we get back to NHH.
