Aim: The purpose of this study is to increase the understanding of how first line management in public organizations is effected by New Public Management related reforms and how they handle related administrative tasks. 

 

Method: The study is based on a deductive and qualitative methodology. We conducted 10 semi-structured interviews with first line managers in Swedish public healthcare organizations. A result is reached by a thematically constructed analysis were citations are presented and analyzed.

 

Result & Conclusions: The study shows through the model that has been used that first line managers are highly affected by administrative tasks that can be linked to New Public Management. The participant managers see these related tasks as important for the organizations and natural in their profession.

 

Contribution of the thesis: The study contributes with an increased understanding of the managing of first line managers and how it is affected by New Public Management related administration through a perspective that is lacking in previous research. The new perspective gives a nuanced view of the manager’s role as administrators and gives rise to suggestions of future research.

Titel: Första linjens chefer, administration och New Public Management

 

Nivå: C-uppsats, företagsekonomi, 15hp. 

Författare: Patrik Jansson & Victor Holmlund

Handledare: Pär Vilhelmson, Kristina Mickelsson & Elena Ahmadi

Syfte: Syftet med studien är att skapa ökad förståelse för hur första linjens chefer i offentlig sektor påverkas av införandet av NPM relaterade reformer och hur de hanterar administrativa uppgifter.

 

Metod: Studien bygger på en kvalitativmetod där empiriskt material har insamlats via 10 semi-strukturerade intervjuer. För att skapa ett resultat har vi använt oss av en tematisk analysmetod där transkriberade citat presenteras, analyseras och diskuteras.

 

Resultat & slutsats: Studien visar via den modell som använts att första linjens chefer inom offentlig sektor påverkas i hög grad av administrativa arbetsuppgifter som kan återknytas till New Public Management. Studien visar att de medverkande cheferna överlag ser dessa administrativa uppgifter som viktiga för organisationen och självklara i deras yrkesroll.

 

Uppsatsens bidrag: Studien bidrar med en ökad förståelse för första linjens chefskap i offentlig sektor samt hur cheferna påverkas av New Public Management relaterad administration ur ett perspektiv som saknas i tidigare forskning. Det nya perspektivet ger en nyanserad bild av chefernas roll som administratörer och ger upphov till förslag om framtida forskning.
