    Scandinavia in general has since long a reputation of sociotechnical forms of work organization, participation and democratization on the workplaces, humanistic and dialogical forms of management in the context of a social democratic welfare regime with labour but also management strongly organized, independet of the state (agreements in stead of law regulation) but in corporatist arrangements with that same state. The societies have ranked and still rank high on economic performance and attractiveness of the place for investments and work, as well as on the use and development of technology, recently not least Iinformation and communication technologies, ICT. They rank high, less surprisingly, on indicators of quality of work, environment etc.

    In this paper the above background is laid out followed by a discussion of recent trends and transformations within the various areas and aspects. The paper is based upon a collection of some ten contributions giving empirical and theoretical-critical accounts of : developments within management trends and fashions; research on managment in Sweden; work and enterprise planning systems in various sectors in Denmark; gender, work and management; trade unions and industrial relations; 'atypical work' and coping with that; the occurence of new forms of management; the 'workers collective' and trends in Norwegian working life. Globalization and political changes with strengthening of the right and also xenophobic forces also form part of the background.

    Various interpretations of recent transformations and their results are possible. On the one hand, not so much seems to have changed: Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose. On the other hand 'everything' seems to have changed or be in a process of transformation. The paper tries to give a nuanced interpretation of transformation and stability.
