Opportunities and barriers that characterize the open data process in the municipality of Örebro (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det huvudsakliga syftet med denna studie är att öka förutsättningarna för Örebro kommun att bedriva ett framgångsrikt arbete med öppna data. Genom att analysera nuläget med avseende på öppna data, dels nationellt, dels inom kommunen, ämnar studien att presentera ett antal rekommenderade strategiska åtgärder som bedöms vara lämpliga för att förbättra arbetet med öppna data i Örebro kommun. Rapporten ska, förutom att fylla ett utbildande syfte internt, utgöra ett underlag för framtida beslut angående öppna data centralt inom kommunen och i kommunens förvaltningar. Två workshopar och intervjuer med interna och externa aktörer genomfördes för att identifiera utmaningar, potentiella målbilder och aktiviteter relaterade till öppna data inom Örebro kommun. Dessa analyserades utifrån tidigare forskning om öppna data i offentliga organisationer. Resultaten visar att kommunen i Örebro bör öka den organisatoriska förmågan, skapa engagemang hos medborgare och underhålla en mer målorienterad strategi för öppna data.

Abstract [en]

The release of public sector information as open data is expected to bring various benefits such as citizen participation, transparency and innovation. In recent years’ open government data has been getting more attention at various levels of government causing several frameworks and manuals to be published. These publications aim to help local governments by providing guidance on how open data efforts should be organized and implemented in practice and a common to these reports is that they contain general descriptions and guidelines that are addressed to all public organizations working with open data. This demands that the proposed practices must be customized when adapted by a specific organization. The municipality of Örebro has an ongoing commitment to open data. Since the interest in open data started to take off in Sweden, the municipality has periodically released new open data sets and on three occasions conducted hackathons with an open data theme. However, the recent introduction of a new municipal management, as well as the loss of an open data key figure, has impeded the continued work with open data in Örebro. Therefore, there is reason to examine what measures should be taken to improve the efforts of open data release in the municipality. In this study interviews and workshops were conducted to identify barriers, goals and activities related to open data in order to bring forward empirically supported recommendations that help the organization to overcome barriers and work towards a more streamlined open data process. The results suggest that the municipality in Örebro should make efforts to increase organizational capabilities, nurture citizen engagement and support a more goal-oriented strategy for open data.
