Governance in a post-bureaucratic organization : A case study at Urb-it (English)
Abstract [en]

Problem: How do post-bureaucratic organizations think about control where individual freedom and responsibility are central elements?

Purpose: The purpose with this study is to examine and analyze how a post-bureaucratic organization sees on control and how it controls the employees.

Method: The collection of data was done by semi structured interviews. The interviews covers three different levels of the organization in the operative business at Urb-it. The data was analyzed and compared with relevant theories and studies in governance in hope to full fill the purpose of the study.

Conclusion: The study shows that normative control methods are the most used at Urb-it. The management team works actively with control methods where the recruitment process is the biggest one while the employees feel free rather than controlled.
