Summary This volume examines how the norms, culture and practices of the socio-economic Nordic model give them a competitive edge in globalised production chains. Using the Norwegian automotive industry - one of the most globalised industries in the world - as the empirical foundation of the book, it examines the strengths, tensions and challenges the Norwegian work organisation style meets in this particular business environment.
