Abstract

Title:

Lean Production in The Public Sectors

Level:

Final assignment for Master of Science in Business Administration.

Authors:

Simon Mårtensson and Ramnpreet Kaur Maan

Supervisor:

Stig Sörling and Tomas Källquist.

Examiner:

Lars-Johan Åge

Date:

2015 – June.

Aim:

The use of Lean Production in the public sector is increasing and there are still opportunities for improvement that contributes to a higher customer value. According to previous research that has been done, there is a lack of research in the field of Lean production in the public sector. Thus, the aim of this study is to create an understanding of how Lean production as a concept can help to influence employees to work with continuous improvements and customer value in the public sector.

Method:

The study has a hermeneutic perspective as a starting point where the substance is studied from an operator approach. We have chosen to build our study with the help of deduction starting with a theoretical framework and then go into the empirical framework. The foundation is built around a case study with a qualitative approach through the semi-structural interviews. Collecting data and analysis has been done through coding to achieve the most essential of it.

Result & Conclusion:

The study indicates that continuous improvement and customer value are tools that the public sector largely works with. To obtain this the respondents, which represent the authorities, uses Lean meetings, Lean board and shows concrete examples of changes that have a positive impact on the company.

Suggestions for future research:

We believe that further research on how employees are affected by the work for continuous improvements and customer value in the private sector is of great interest.

Contribution of the thesis:

The study shows that it is needed to motivate employees so that they will work on continuous improvements and customer value. In connection with this, there are tools that the public sector can use to promote the motivation, which is education and feedback.

Key words:

Lean Production, employees, continuous improvements, customer value, the public sector.
