Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


Values and strategies are two powerful drivers of business. Both of them have effects on the activities and practices of the firms. This chapter compares the relevance of values and strategy in Scandinavian business basing on the contents of the web pages for the largest firms in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland. The results show the importance of values in the forms of responsibility and sustainability in these web pages. The firms also provide complement information, how they will follow these topical contemporary values in their business. According to analysis, the role of strategy is still relatively important, but not so important as values especially in the headings of homepages or “about us” pages.
