How municipal organizations prepare for GDPR : A study focusing on the preparationand implementation of organizational changes (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to provide information on how organizations prepare for organizational change by examining how they work for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into action in May 2018. The following questions have been used in order to approach this action: How do municipal organizations prepare effectively for the changes that the EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implies? What steps are particularly problematic in the change work? How can change leaders handle these steps?

During the study, a qualitative method has been used through semi-structured interviews. Respondents have key positions in the preparatory work for GDPR within three municipal organizations. One respondent for each organization. As a theoretical reason, Kotter's eight- step change model and previous research on the importance of an individual perspective in change work have been used and the empirical material has been analyzed using content analysis and opinion concentration. The results show that the preparation work for the change looks different in different organizations. You then have a problem of communicating the vision of change when instructions from the EU and the Data Inspectorate for the new regulation are not fully met. Furthermore, the study demonstrates the importance of organizational understanding and knowledge of change, by the change leader, to introduce a new way of working in a municipal organization.
