Processes of organizing in a pop band (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det finns ett gap mellan tanke och handling i mindre organisationer. Omedvetenhet om den egna verksamheten har lett till att både lyckad och misslyckad organisering getts missvisande förklaringar. Studiens syfte är därför att utveckla kunskap om och förståelse för organiseringsprocesser i mindre organisationer och specifikt i popband. Forskningsdesignen är en longitudinell fallstudie av ett popband. Metodologin har inspirerats av etnografi och har en abduktiv ansats. Den huvudsakliga datainsamlingstekniken har varit observation av chattande, men direkta observationer, intervjuer och reflektionsmöte har också genomförts. Resultaten visar hur popbandet organiseras i projekt och på vikten av komplexitet och den gemensamma mening som det kan skapa. Stöd har tagits i Czarniawskas organiseringsteori och Weicks teori om meningsskapande. Slutsatsen dras att ihållande och sammanhängande organiseringsprocesser är förbundna med kollektiva meningsprocesser. Strävan efter gemensam mening är en strävan efter att förverkliga organisationen som ett kollektiv. Implikationerna för välfungerande verksamhet i mindre organisationer föreslås vara att sträva efter komplexitet genom att involvera alla deltagares mest meningsfulla projekt i varandra, att schemalägga träffar och att sätta multipla deadlines, samt att undvika enväldigt ledarskap, att undvika konkurrerande kompiskollektiv, att undvika delegering och tilldelning av ansvarsområden och att undvika strävan efter en gemensam syn på verksamheten.

Abstract [en]

There is a gap between thought and action in smaller organizations. Unawareness of its own activities has led to misleading explanations for both successful and unsuccessful organizing. This study therefore aims to develop knowledge and understanding of processes of organizing in smaller organizations and specifically in pop bands. The research design is a longitudinal case study of a pop band. The methodology was inspired by ethnography and has an abductive approach. The main source for data collection has been observation of chatting, however direct observations, interviews and a meeting of stimulated recall has also been conducted. The results show how the pop band is organized in projects and the importance of complexity and the collective sense that it can make. Analysis is based on Czarniawska's theory of organizing and Weick's theory of sensemaking. It is concluded that sustained and coherent processes of organizing are associated with processes of collective sensemaking. An endeavor for collective sense is an endeavor to realize the organization as a collective. The implications for well-functioning activities in smaller organizations proposed to be to endeavor for complexity by involving the most sensible projects according to all participants into one another, and to schedule meetings and to have multiple deadlines, and avoid authoritarian leadership, avoid competing buddy collective, avoid delegation and allocation of areas of responsibility and avoid the pursuit of a common view.
