Entropy in Reorganization (English)
Abstract [en]

In this study, entropy in reorganisation is investigated due to the individual co-workers being an ever more important component of his or her contemporary organisation, where change and reorganisation is undertaken continuously. Earlier research regarding entropy in reorganisation have mainly been done from a financial perspective; diversification. Hence there is room for additional research, with the individual in focus, rather than the company portfolio. This study aims at enlighten the entropy prevalent trough lost information in reorganisation.

With qualitative method and phenomenological onset, five respondents in different positions from Swedish and global organisations, have been interviewed about their and their co-workers experience of reorganisation. The study shows the discrepancy between, the by the management defined finish­, vs. when the co-workers sense that a reorganisation de factois finished. The study also shows how individual motivation, psychosocial health and work effort can be affected through loss of the three types of information; descriptive, operative and narrative.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studien undersöks entropi i omorganisering mot bakgrund av att den individuella med­arbet­aren utgör en allt viktigare del av sin samtida organisation, där förändring och omorgani­sering sker kontinuerligt. Tidigare forskning kring entropi i omorganisering har främst gjorts ur ett finansiellt perspektiv, s.k. diversifieringsperpektiv. Således finns utrymme för ytterligare forskning med individen i fokus snarare än företagsportföljen.

Studien syftar till att belysa den entropi som genom för­lorad informa­tion gör sig påtaglig i samband med omorganisering. Med kvalitativ metod och feno­men­ologisk ansats har fem respondenter, i olika positioner från svenska och globala organisa­tioner, inter­vjuats om sin och sina kollegors upplevelse av omorganisering. Studien påvisar en diskre­pansen mellan det av ledningen definierade färdigställandet respektive när medarbet­arna upplever att en omorganisa­tion de factoär klar. Här påvisas även hur individens motivation, psyko­­sociala hälsa och arbets­insats kan påverkas genom förlust av de identifierade tre typerna av information deskrip­tiv, operativ och narrativ.
