Hello

Just can't work out what this could be even though it appears a bit on the Internet but never in a dictionary

Ofta grundas styrning på i huvudsak tre–fyra olika styrmedel; utarbetade rutiner och manualer, planerings- och budgetprocesser, och social påverkan i form av medverkan på möten och kontakter med gemensamma staber eller gemensamma ***stabsbolag***.

Thanks

managment companies
Explanation:
As "stab" originally means the staff surrounding and supporting a high military leader but has now migrated into the business world, its meaning, in the business world, is a little unclear and therefore either non-existent or unclear in dictionaries and similar.
However, in my experience, it most often means management, executives, or possibly directorate and therefore, translating "stabsbolag" into "management companies" cannot be far wrong.
In my humble opinion, that is!
