Abstract [sv]

Forskningsfråga: Vilka problem försvårar möjligheten att införa en kortare arbetsvecka?

Syfte: Syftet med studien är att identifiera problem som mellanchefer förutsätter försvårar möjligheten att införa kortare arbetsvecka

Metod: Studien är genomförd utifrån en kvalitativ forskningsmetod med en induktiv ansats. Det empiriska materialet består av sju stycken interjuver med mellanchefer i olika organisationer.

Slutsatser: De kategorier vi har identifierat ligga till grund för problem är gemenskap och tillhörighet, normer,legitimitet, styrning, produktivitet och teknologi, kostnader samt hälsoaspekter. De vi har funnit är de alla hör samman och påverkar varandra och skapar ett problem för införandet av förkortad arbetsvecka. Mellanchefens komplexa situation är också en faktor för att det upplevs som problematiskt att införa förkortad arbetsvecka.

Research question: What problems limit the possibility to implement shorter working weeks?

Purpose: The purpose with the study is to identify problems that the head of the department presume limit the possibility to implement a shorter working week.

Method: The study is conducted on the basis of a qualitative research method with an inductive approach. The empirical content consisted of seven different interviews with the head of the department of their organization.

Conclusions: Problems have been found to occur within the different categories community and belonging, standards, legitimacy, management, productivity and technology, costs and health aspects. We have found out that all of these affect each other and create problems when it comes to implementation of shorter working weeks. The head of department have shown to be a complex role to handle and has also been perceived as a contributing factor to why an implementation of shorter working weeks is so problematic.
