Abstract [en]

The County Administrative Board of Västerbotten is a complex organisation with ties to both the nearby municipal offices and the Swedish government. The government put high demands on the County Administrative Boards in the country when it comes to the time of processing different cases. During October 2017, a suggestion was submitted to the parliament considering the Boards’ processing times of cases being too long and sporadic, where they proposed that continuous work regarding effectivity in their work processes would help reduce the time and irregularity. The County Administrative Board of Västerbotten, with the help of the Bitstream project, decided to implement a new unit, a type of Project Management Office (PMO), in 2018 which was tasked to offer support and tools for the other units’ work processes. Bitstream is a Swedish-Norwegian project, which includes a collaboration between Umeå University, as well as several municipalities in northern Sweden, with the purpose of creating innovations in business modelling within the public sector. The unit, called process support, contains six employees whom originated from the unit for regional growth, and their task is to help the Boards’ units determine their processes during cases to resolve which sub processes are not time efficient. They also help identify the processes that are valuable for the client, which processes are necessary but does not create value, as well as those that do neither. While the implementation and the results of the process support have been fairly successful, the enforcement of the unit proved to be ineffectual, with several complications occurring. This study aims to research the best possible prerequisites to productively implement and administer a Project Management Office in the public sector. Due to most research on PMOs being focused on businesses and not state organisations, the need for such a study is present. Through interviews with five of the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten’s employees, documents from the Board and Bitstream project, and related research on PMO, we display several proposals of change the Board should apply as well as the prerequisites needed to effectively implement and administer a PMO in a state organisation.
