The importance of leadership and the groups developmental stage for the work group efficiency : A study of the coherence between the leadership, the groups efficiency and group development (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftade till att undersöka gruppmedlemmars upplevelse av ledarskapsstilen, effektiviteten samt utvecklingsstadium. Detta för att undersöka om det fanns ett samband mellan upplevd ledarskapstil, upplevelsen av gruppens utvecklingsstadium samt den upplevda effektiviteten. Det finns forskning kring ledarskap och effektivitet i förhållande till högpresterande yrken (Chi, Chung & Tsai, 2011; Guardia, 2007; Pillai & Williams, 2003) vilket gjorde att författarna till denna studie fann det intressant att studera om detta samband också förekom på en grupp kontorsanställda. Populationen bestod av kommunanställda på två kommuner, sammanlagt skickades enkäten ut till 104 individer. Deltagarna fick besvara enkäter som var sammansatta av Bass och Avolio (1995) för att besvara ledarskapsdelen samt Wheelan (2010) för att besvara utvecklingsstadium och effektivitet. Det var 41 av 104 individer som valde att delta i studien vilket gav en svarsfrekvens på 39,42%. Resultatet visade på en signifikant skillnad mellan stadium 3 och 4 när det gäller gruppens utvecklingsstadium kopplat till effektivitet. Studien visade ingen signifikant skillnad i effektivitet eller upplevt utvecklingsstadium mellan olika upplevda ledarskapsstilar. Trots få signifikanta kopplingar ger studien en möjlighet till vidare forskning inom området.

Abstract [en]

The study's aim was to investigate the group member’s experiences of the leadership, efficiency and developmental stage. This was done to analyse if there was a connection between the experienced style of leadership), the experience of the group’s stage of development and the experienced efficiency. There is research regarding leadership and efficiency in relation to high performance professions (Chi, Chung & Tsai, 2011; Guardia, 2007; Pillai & Williams, 2003) which led to that the authors of this particular study decided to investigate if this relationship was also present within a group of office employees. The population consisted of government employees in two different municipality, all together the form was sent out to 104 individuals. The participants had to answer surveys that were created by Bass and Avolio (1995) to answer the part about leadership and Wheelan (2010) to answer stage of development and efficiency. 41 out of 104 decided to participate in the study which resulted with a response rate of 39,42%. The result showed a significant difference between stage 3 and 4 when it comes to the group’s stage of development connected to efficiency. The study did not show a significant difference in efficiency or experienced stage of development between the different types of leadership. Even though there's few significant connections the study presents opportunities to further research in the area.
