Abstract [en]

Management by objectives is the dominating governance in Sweden's public sector. In the municipality of Åre there is an established procedure for management by objectives that I wanted to study closer in order to see if it correspond with the theory and how the politicians relate to it. In order to do this I have interviewed five chairmen of the boards. The purpose of the study is to apply the theory of management by objectives to see if and how it conforms to reality and if the politicians feels influenced by or influenced its design. The results are analyzed with organization theory in order to explain the process of management by objectives in an organization. The main conclusions are that the politicians have a leading role in the process of management by objectives and that they involve the administration to a greater extent than the theory says. The organization theory provides explanations for the process of management by objectives through an organizational culture, the organization as a tool and as an emergence through the myth perspective.
