Abstract [sv]

Agilt är ett arbetssätt som innefattar en ökad grad av flexibilitet och anpassningsförmåga för organisationer, som ska uppnås genom bemyndigade anställda. Tidigare forskning inom agilt har fokuserat på arbetssättets fördelar och till viss del även svårigheterna med dess implementering. Trots det agila arbetssättets nära koppling till organisationskultur anser vi att dessa två fält inte i någon större utsträckning har getts en kvalitativ och djupare analys tillsammans, där fokus läggs på attityden till arbetssättet som organisationsmodell utanför IT-sektorn. Detta har undersökts via sju semistrukturerade intervjuer med personer som innehar chefs- eller ledarroller inom olika organisationer, varpå resultaten från dessa har analyserats utifrån studiens syfte och jämförts med tidigare forskning. Respondenterna tycks uppvisa positiv inställning till det agila arbetssättet och en medvetenhet om organisationskulturens vikt vid organisationsförändringar. Slutligen görs en avslutande diskussion och slutsats där argumentet ges att den vaghet och otydlighet som tenderar att omgärda såväl det agila arbetssättet som organisationskulturer kan vara en väsentlig anledning till att det agila arbetssättet inte implementeras i större utsträckning.

Abstract [en]

Agile is a work method that involves a higher degree of flexibility and adaptability for organizations, which is to be met by empowered employees. Previous research regarding agile has focused on its benefits and to a certain degree also the difficulties in its implementation, but despite the agiles’ close connections to organizational culture according to our literature review that these two fields have to a wider extent not been given a qualitative and deeper analysis together, where focus is given to how agile is viewed as an organizational model outside the IT sector. This has been researched through seven semi-structured interviews with individuals with managerial roles within different organizations, where after the results have been analyzed from the standpoint of the study’s purpose and compared to earlier research. The respondents seem to display a positive attitude toward the agile and an awareness of the importance of organizational culture in organizational change. Then a final discussion and conclusion is made where the argument is put forth that the vagueness and ambiguity which tend to surround the agile as well as organizational culture could be an essential reason to why agile is not implemented to a wider extent.
