A qualitative study of middle managers perceivedneed of support (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det är betydelsefullt för chefer att samverka med deras medarbetare och stödresurser för deras hållbarhet och funktion som chef. Stödet har en stor relevans för ett bra chefskap. Just målgruppen mellanchefer besitter en komplex position då de är under ett högt tryck av krav, både från de undre och de övre nivåerna. Studiens syfte var att undersöka mellanchefers upplevda behov av stöd i deras funktion som mellanchef, samt om det är möjligt att urskilja likheter i deras uppfattningar av stöd på deras respektive arbetsplats. Studien tillämpade en kvalitativ metod där data samlades in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer. Resultatet påvisade att mellanchefer, oberoende av vilken verksamhet de arbetar inom har ett behov av stöd. De stöd som visade sig vara det mest betydelsefulla var deras egen chef, en samverkan med andra människor inom verksamheten samt ett bra arbetsklimat. Utifrån resultatet kunde likheter urskiljas. Slutsatsen är att mellanchefer är i behov av stödresurser.

Abstract [en]

It is important for managers to interact with their employees and support resources for their durability and function as manager. The support has a great relevance for good leadership. Middle managers possess a complex position through high pressure of requirements, both from the lower and the upper levels. The study's purpose was to examine the middle managers' perceived needs for support in their function as a middle manager, and see if it is possible to discern similarities in their perceptions of support, independent of their respective occupation. The study applied a qualitative method where the data was collected through semi-structured interviews. The result showed that middle managers, regardless of their occupation, have a need for support. The most significant support was their own boss, collaboration with other people within the occupation and a good working atmosphere. Based on the results could similarities be discerned. The conclusion was that the middle managers are in need of support resources.
