Implementering av metoder från nyanländaprojekt: En analys av strategier, ägarskap, samverkan och lärande
2011 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
What can, should or shall be implemented from projects to regular organisation, where, when and how, are recurrent questions in project contexts, and these are the questions being addressed in this study. Good answers for these questions are foundation stones in a well thought out strategy for implementation. The point of departure in this study is to analyse to what extent mechanisms, such as active project ownership, successful coop-eration and development directed learning, are connected with a well thought out strategy for implementation, and joined with sustainable development, in the sense that progress from projects can live on in ordinary organisations. Primarily four projects within the European Social Fund (ESF) are analysed: two ongoing and large ones in the Stockholm area and two smaller and finished ones located in the southern part of Sweden (the Helsingborg area). The projects in question are within the ESF:s program area of in-creased labour supply and have newly arrived refugees as their main target group. The projects are designed to address frequent problems and to make improvements when it comes to knowledge and methods for a more rapid and increased establishment on the labour market for the newly arrived. The analysis in this study is based on different kinds of project documents, interviews with people in and close to the four projects, ongoing evaluations, comparisons of the projects in question, and previous research. The findings from the Helsingborg area suggest that improved project ownership, cooperation and development directed learning actually do bring about a well thought out strategy for implementation; methodological progress from their two especially studied projects is adjusted to and continues in ordinary local communal organisations. The findings from Stockholm are less conclusive, because the two studied projects in this area are both still ongoing. Even though the strategy is elaborated during the project process there are potential candidates for implementation in both of them, for example regarding matching (in teams or of a stock flow type), quality securing methods, which map both formal and informal knowledge, and also parallel modules going on at the same time. The study illustrates how the projects adjust to new circumstances, e.g. when the Swedish Public Employment Service took over the responsibility for the establishment of newly arrived people from the Swedish local communes. A lesson to be learned is that the strategy for implementation ought to be considered closer and documented in a better way during the time that the projects go on.
