Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsens syfte är att studera hur kvinnor som är chefer framställer chefskapet och svara på frågeställningen på vilka sätt chefskapet konstrueras samt vilka villkor och förväntningar som finns utifrån kvinnornas konstruktioner. Totalt intervjuades sex kvinnliga chefer i semistrukturerade intervjuer. Utifrån intervjutranskriptioner identifierades tre tolkningsrepertoarer och tre subjektspositioner. Tolkningsrepertoarerna var; ”det professionella samspelet”, ”det kravfyllda chefskapet” och ”den manliga och det kvinnliga i chefskapet”. De identifierade subjektspositionerna var; ”chefen som kollega”, ”chefen som den ytterst ansvariga” och ”den elaka kvinnan”. Studien genomfördes med diskurspsykologisk och socialkonstruktionistiskt teori och metod. Studien resulterade i identifierandet av tre tolkningsrepertoarer och tre subjektspositioner inom vilka olika aspekter av hur chefskapet konstruerades redogjordes för samt hur dessa kan tolkas i förhållande till förväntningar och villkor.
