The value of working together : A qualitative study on coordination and collaboration from an employee and managerial perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur olika yrkeskategorier inom vuxenutbildningens utbildning i svenska för invandrare (sfi) verkar tillsammans inom ramarna för verksamheten.

Genom individuella intervjuer framkommer möjligheter och svårigheter. Empiri har bearbetats genom tematisk analys. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten för studien är en modell om samarbete, samordning och samverkan genom olika grader av vertikal respektive horisontal integrering av styrningsmekanismer och frivilliga initiativ.

Resultatet visar att det förekommer en mängd olika tillfälliga samarbeten. De intervjuade ger exempel på yrkeskategorier som möts i det vardagliga arbetet. Dessutom sker arbete mellan olika yrkeskategorier i en mer samordnad form genom team. Vidare synliggörs respondenternas upplevelser av värdet av att samarbeta, exempelvis stärkta relationer och en bättre arbetsmiljö. Ett annat värde som lyfts fram är den ökade möjligheten för personal att identifiera behov av stöd hos eleverna, som leder till bättre anpassningar av undervisningen. Resultatet visar också hur verksamheten samordnas genom team, samt potential för samverkan. Samverkan mellan yrkeskategorier uppnås inte fullt ut idag inom sfi.

Slutsatserna visar att det finns en samsyn hos chefer och övriga yrkeskategorier gällande vilka mekanismer som försvårar respektive möjliggör samverkan. Rutiner för samverkan saknas. Det medarbetarna också efterfrågar är någon som leder arbetet och beslutar att man ska samarbeta och hur det ska gå till. Det vill säga någon som bär ansvaret för att planera, genomföra och följa upp samverkan.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how different occupational categories within adult education in Swedish for immigrants (SFI) interact within the framework of their common business.

As a method for carrying out the study, I have used qualitative interviews. The data material presents opportunities and difficulties that appear around working together. The empirical material has been processed through thematic analysis. The theoretical starting point for the study is a model of different degrees of vertical and horizontal integration for understanding collaboration.

The result shows that there are a variety of temporary collaborations. Through interviews the study give examples of professional categories that meet in everyday work. In addition, work takes place between different professional categories in a more coordinated form through teams. Furthermore, the respondents' experiences of the value of collaborating, such as strengthened relationships and a better working environment, are made visible. Another highlight that is mentioned is the increased possibility for staff to identify the need for support from the students, which leads to better adaptations of teaching. The result also shows how the business is coordinated through teams, and the potential for collaboration. Cooperation between professional categories is not fully achieved today within sfi.

The conclusions show that there is a consensus among managers and other occupational categories considering which mechanisms make it difficult or possible to cooperate. There are no routines for collaboration today. What employees also demand is someone who leads the work, makes decisions and bears the responsibility of planning, implementing and following up the collaboration.
