Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att bidra med kunskapsutveckling kring framgångsfaktorer och utmaningar för strategiska ledare, inom Polismyndig-heten, för praktiserandet av ett modernt ledarskap.

Studiens teoriavsnitt avgränsades till artiklar och litteratur som berör offentligt ledarskap och tillhörande ledarskapsutveckling med avseende på ett tillits-perspektiv – exempelvis; övergången till det moderna ledarskapet, rollen av organisationskulturen samt ständigt förbättringsarbete.

Med utgångspunkt i relevant litteratur utformades en intervjuguide som låg till grund för semistandardiserade intervjuer med sex chefer på strategisk nivå i en av Polismyndighetens sju regioner. Utifrån intervjuresultat och relevant litteratur utformades därefter en enkät som skickades ut till 39 strategiska chefer, på motsvarande funktioner, i myndighetens övriga sex regioner.

Arbetets omfattande empiri strukturerades utifrån ett hermeneutiskt förhållningssätt. Analysen av empirin beaktade, med utgångspunkt i studiens syfte och forskningsfrågor, såväl resultatet från intervjuerna och enkätunder-sökningen, som studiens teoretiska ramverk.

Författarnas slutsats är att såväl framgångsfaktorer som utmaningar för praktiserandet av ett modernt ledarskap, inom Polismyndigheten, i flertalet fall kan ses ur ett kommunikativt perspektiv. Studiens resultat indikerar att dialogen mellan chefer på regional nivå, likväl den som tar plats mellan regional och nationell nivå, uppvisar utvecklingsutrymme.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to contribute with knowledge of success factors and challenges for strategic managers, in the Swedish Police Authority, in practicing a ‘modern leadership’.

The chapter on theory was limited to articles and literature relating to leadership in the public sector and trust-oriented leadership development – such as the transition to a ‘modern leadership’, the role of organizational culture, and continuous improvement.

An interview guide, which was developed based on relevant literature, formed the outline for semi-standardized interviews with six strategic leaders in one of the seven police regions. A questionnaire, deriving on the results from the interviews, was subsequently sent to 39 strategic managers, in corresponding functions, in the authority's additional six police regions.

The extensive empirical work was structured in a hermeneutical approach. The analysis took, based on the study’s purpose and research questions, into account the results of the interviews and the questionnaire, as well as the theoretical framework of the study.

The authors conclude that both success factors and challenges for practicing a modern leadership within the Police can, in most cases, be seen from a communicative perspective. The results of the study indicate that the dialogue between managers at a regional level, and the dialogue that takes place between regional and national level, shows opportunities for development.
