A study about creating understanding for different kinds of empowerment

Level:

Bachelors thesis in Business Administration, 15 credits

Author:

Fredrik Legovic

Tomas Källquist

Date:

2014 - June

Aim:

The main purpose of this study is to increase the understanding for different kinds of empowerment and how it affects the staff in the public sector.

Method:

The choice of method was based on the research aim. The method used to meet the objective was qualitative. The qualitative study was conducted with a hermeneutic basis, where individuals were asked to describe their experience of empowerment and how they feel affected of it. This thesis has a deductive approach, where existing theories dealing empowerment formed the basis for the design of interview substrate, which is then paired with the empirical evidence, based on this the conclusions was drawn.

Result & Conclusion:

What separates the different kinds of empowerment and how it affect the staff depends most of all on how the management chooses to communicate and share information with their staff.

Suggestions for future research:

A study regarding managers that works with different kinds of empowerment, and how that affects them, could be regarded as an interesting future research.

Contribution of thesis:

It shows that different kinds of empowerment affect the staff in different ways, which I made clear to the readers.
