Abstract [en]

Public welfare services delivered by the Day Care Centers met with problems during the late 1980’s owing to a very rapid expansion and raised costs. I had a solution, to decentralize economic responsibility to the Day Care Centers with the help of the guidelines of the LOM-Programme, financed by Arbetsmiljöfonden:

  • The research was to be oriented towards actions.
  • The organizational development was to be inititated and executed by the participants.
  • The participants were to come from all hierachical levels of the organization, i.e. the management, the middle management and the shop floor as well as from the union.
  • The role of the researcher was not to that of an expert, but to support a development without knowing what path would lead to the goal. Search Conferences were used as a method.

The participants chose to work with relations and only a few projects concerning economic responsibility were established. The aim of this disseration is to give reasonable explanations to this outcome by investigating three areas: the guidelines of the Programme, the conditions of the work at the Day Care Centers and the contents of Economic Responsibility.

Data were collected in several ways: by arranging and conducting the search conferences, by participating observation at the day care centers and by inquiries and interviews to the personnel and parents.

My findings show that the information between the day care centers and the local administration ought to be better but there were also different conceptions between the two areas Economics and Care. Since shared values is one condition for organization development according to the Research Programme, this value difference contributes to the explanation of the absence of organization development concering economic responsibility.
