Abstract [en]

This paper examines the non-profit organization Friskis&Svettis in order to gain insight into whether governmentality is used and if it is being used in what way. Furthermore we analyzed the requirements and consequences that that may have developed out of this governance structure. To get answers to the questions asked in this paper, a qualitative approach has been taken by the use of interviews with officials at Friskis&Svettis Uppsala. The conclusions drawn from the survey is that there are factors that indicate that governmentality is used within the organization by way of the use of guidelines which can be seen as a technique to control individuals and point them in the desired direction, and the follow-ups that can verify that the guidelines are being followed by the officials. The guidelines and the follow-up have also been an organizational requirement. A subsequent impact that was found is that certain leadership styles may be rewarded and that certain criteria on the personal level in terms of which individuals fit within the organization can be created.

Abstract [sv]

I denna uppsats undersöks den ideella organisationen Friskis&Svettis med syfte att få insikt i huruvida självstyrning finns, vilken är vår teoretiska utgångspunkt, samt hur den i sådana fall tar form.  Ett vidare intresse har varit att analysera vilka krav och konsekvenser som kan komma att utvecklas ur denna styrningsform. För att få svar på undersökningens frågeställningar har en kvalitativ ansats använts genom intervjuer med funktionärer vid Friskis&Svettis Uppsala. De slutsatser som dragits från undersökningen är att det finns faktorer som pekar på självstyrning inom organisationen, dels passens riktlinjer som kan ses som en teknik för att styra individerna i önskad riktning, och dels uppföljningar som kan kontrollera att riktlinjerna efterföljs av funktionärerna. Riktlinjerna och uppföljningarna har även funnits som organisatoriska krav. En efterföljande konsekvens som funnits gäller hur vissa ledarstilar kan komma att premieras samt hur kriterier på det personliga planet vad gäller vilka individer som platsar inom organisationen kan skapas.
