Knowledge Management Activities Of Young Firms In Sweden : Exploring knowledge management enablers and understanding the relation between knowledge management activities and financial performance.
Sammanfattning: Sweden is a country that stands out in terms of attracting highly skilled workers and having a large number of young firms. However, with the young age and specifically put in a concrete context of the COVID-19 pandemic, young firms may face the risk of losses due to a lack of funds to maintain or having volatile financial sources. Therefore, this thesis tries to provide insights on the relation between knowledge management activities (KMAs) and financial performance in young firms from 5 to 10 years old in Sweden. In other words, the thesis aims to understand how young firms in Sweden have implemented KMAs inside their firms. More specifically, striving to determine which knowledge management enablers influence KMAs, what kinds of KMAs young firms are applying, and at what level those kinds of activities impact young firms’ financial performance. A mixed-method approach has been selected to utilize both qualitative and quantitative methods. Together with semi-structured interviews, Exploratory Sequential Design is applied in the thesis, which enables defining the impact of KMAs on the financial performance of young firms in Sweden and the availability of the presented conceptual framework in practice.
