Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Kontorens utformning påverkar hur organisationer upplevs internt och externt. Utformningen har förändrats genom tiden vilket till viss del beror på samhällsutvecklingen och moden. Aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt är ett nytt sätt att utforma kontor på och allt fler organisationer väljer idag att implementera ett aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt.

Syfte: Att skapa förståelse för modets inverkan på organisationers utveckling genom att studera implementeringen av ett aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt. 

Metod: Studien bygger på en deduktiv forskningsansats med en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi. Studien är en tvärsnittsstudie med datainsamling från mer än ett fall. Åtta kvalitativa intervjuer och två observationer har genomförts.   

Resultat, slutsatser: Det finns flera motiv till att implementera ett aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt. Sänkta kostnader till följd av minskade lokalytor, ökad produktivitet, hänsyn till miljön, ökad attraktionskraft, ökat samarbete och innovationsskapande är exempel på motiv till implementeringen. Utifrån en modemetafor kan det ses en ökad spridning av begreppet aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt, vilket sker genom konsulter, företag och media. Idén aktivitetsbaserat arbetssätt har rest in i diskursen organisation och håller på att förändra normen som upprätthåller bilden av vad som anses vara det bästa sättet att utforma arbetsplatsen på, det vill säga vad som ger organisationer legitimitet.

Abstract [en]

The design of the offices affect how organizations are perceived internal and externally. The design has changed over time that to some extents depend on the society development and fashion. Activity-based workplace is a new way to design offices and many more organizations choose to implement an activity-based workplace approach nowadays. 

The purpose of the study is to create understanding of the influence of fashion in organizations development by studying the introduction of activity-based workplace.

The study is based on a deductive research approach with a qualitative research methodology. The study is a cross-sectional research with data collection from more than one case. Eight qualitative interviews and two observations have been completed.

There are several reasons for implementing an activity-based workplace. Reduced costs due to reduced workspace premises, increased productivity, being environmentally responsible, increased attractiveness, collaboration and innovation creation are examples of reasons for the implementation. In a fashion metaphor, the spread of the activity-based workplace concept is increasing provenly, which is done by consultants, companies and the media. The idea of activity-based workplace has entered the discourse of organization and it is about to change the norm that maintains the image of what is considered the best way to design the workplace; that is what gives organizations legitimacy.
