Abstract [en]

People with certain types of disabilities have the legal right to ask for an individual plan. The idea is that the plan should be a tool for the disabled to get more power and influence over the planned actions that involves their lives. The aim of this thesis was to study the individual circumstances of interpersonal power and influence in the work of individual plans. The study was done with a qualitative approach, where three executing officers and three individuals were interviewed. The results show that the conditions for the individual’s influence are far more complicated than at first glance. The influence depends on a number of parameters, from the executing officer’s response and inclusion of the individuals, to how the staffs of the operators receive and implement the individual plan. The shortcomings in the implementation were due to the staff having different views than the individual, representatives and executing officers on what to do and what the individual wanted. The thesis conclusions were that the individual's influence depends on the discourse about disability and the work culture prevailing in the workplace. Influence is given from the person that has the power position in the relationship.
