Profession’s impact on organizations : a study in trotting and equestrian (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Debatter som förts har visat på skillnader inom ridsporten och travsporten. Trots att det är två sporter som, enligt den institutionella teorin, borde vara lika och ha en likartad organisation har skillnader uppmärksammats. Organisationer präglas ofta av de som är ledande inom dessa och de som hör till professioner ofta tar sig an dessa ledande roller. Därför kan professionen vara en faktor som påverkar organisationer och som kan förklara skillnaderna som uppmärksammats inom ridsporten och travsporten.

Syfte: Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur professionen kan påverka organisationer.

Metod: Studien har genomförts genom både en kvalitativ del och en kvantitativ där data har samlats in från proffstränare inom travsporten och beridare och godkända tränare inom ridsporten. Utifrån teorin formulerades tre hypoteser som undersöktes genom bivariata tester.

Resultat/slutsatser: Studiens resultat kunde varken förkasta eller bekräfta någon hypotes. Däremot kunde det visa att professionen, genom framförallt gemenskap och etik i många fall kan påverka organisationen och då främst dess mål och struktur.

Although there are two sports that, according to the institutional theory, should be the same and have a similar organization has differences noted. Organizations are often characterized by those who are leaders in these and those belonging to the professions often take on these leadership roles. Therefore the profession as a factor affecting organizations and the like may explain the differences highlighted in equestrian sport and trotting.

Purpose: The purpose with this study is to examine how the profession can affect organizations.

Method: The study was conducted through both a qualitative part and a quantitative where data has been collected from professional trainers in trotting and riding master and certified trainer in equestrian sport. Based on the theory formulated three hypotheses were examined through bivariate tests.

Conclusions: Results of the study could not reject or confirm any hypothesis. However, it could show that the profession, primarily through fellowship and ethics in many cases can affect the organization and particularly their aims and structure
