Lean production and work motivation : A study of how various components of lean production affect blue-collar workers' work motivation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en magisteruppsats i arbetsvetenskap utförd under vårterminen 2014. Studiens syfte har varit att undersöka arbetsmotivationen bland anställda i en tillverkningsfabrik som implementerat principer och verktyg från lean production. Utgångspunkten har varit att undersöka om element i lean production, så som teamorganisering och delaktighet, har en positiv inverkan på inre motivation. I studien operationaliserades inre motivation som arbetstillfredsställelse och engagemang.

     Studien utgår från en kvalitativ ansats med ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv. Datamaterialet har insamlats från sammanlagt 12 respondenter, samtliga från samma fabrik i Svealand. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna beträffande arbetsmotivation grundas i stor utsträckning på teorier av Abraham Maslow (1943), Frederick Herzberg (1987; 2002) samt Richard Hackman och Greg Oldham (1974; 1976).

     Studiens resultat pekar på att anställda drivs av både inre och yttre motivatorer i sitt arbete. Resultatet indikerar att element så som 5S och arbetsrotation har en positiv inverkan på arbetstillfredsställelsen men att inga delar i lean leder till engagemang. Snarare beror engagemanget på andra faktorer än lean production.

Abstract [en]

This is a master’s (1) thesis in working life science carried out during the spring term of 2014. The purpuse of the study was to examine work motivation among employees in a manufacturing plant that uses lean production principles and tools. The approach has been to investigate whether elements of lean production, such as teams and participation, has a positive impact on intrinsic motivation, which was operationalized as job satisfaction and engagement.

     The study was based on a qualitative approach with a hermeneutik perspective. Data has been obtained form a total of 12 respondents, all from the same factory in Svealand. The theoretical base regarding work motivation is largely based on the work of Abraham Maslow (1943), Frederick Herzberg (1987; 1993) and also Richard Hackman and Greg Oldham (1974; 1976).

     The results indicate that employees are driven by both intrinsic and extrinsic motivatators in their work. The results suggest that elements such as 5S and job rotation have a positive impact on job satisfaction but that no elements of lean production lead to engagement. Engagement is rather the cause of factors other than lean production.
