Purpose and goal

To identify barriers in practice and in theory for and transition to sharing economy with the identification of measures for specific companies. Increased knowledge of one´s own business has emerged in all partner organizations. In Husqvarna this has resulted in a decided strategy on innovation projects that support a circular economy. The analysis of Hygglo´s database has today provided a basis for Hygglo that enables them to develop their platform and their business. The literature study has resulted in a broad knowledge description with large effect on future research.

In the small company, the study in particular involved quantitative analyzes of their product and customer data. In the large company, several interviews have been conducted and three workshops have been developed, that have been of great importance for the company´s strategy development.
