One of the future challenges Sweden facing is the demografic change. More and more people are getting older and less of the population is in working age. For the public sector that is mainly tax finance this might lead to a lower financial budget in the future. Therefore, the public sector are request to innovate new process, service and methods that will increase the quality and the efficieny. During the last years there have been several debates in Sweden about the situation in the public sector. There have been several indications that there is a decreased qualitiy in the service the public sector deliver. The management and organizational structure is by many critics blamed for the decreased quality. The purpose of this research is through empirical data describe and understand how employees openess, creative and pro-active behavoir get affected of the organizational pattern. This study is conducted with a qualitative method where I analyzed interviews conducted with employees in the public sector. My findings are that the organizational pattern creates an unclear objectives, counterproductive behavior, and loss of self-confidence and a feeling of uncertainty. I understand that the publi sector needs to develop a basic structure that enhances the employees openess, creative and pro-active behavior.
