Abstract [en]

In the present paper a new public management (NPM) reform program is studied by using Foucaults two forms of power/knowledge - disciplinary power and governmentality. Empirically, the paper centers on the implementation of TQM at the County Council of Värmland (CCV), the public healthcare authority for the region of Värmland, Sweden. At the CCV, the focus is on two groups; the 'new management' and the 'old administrators'. The analysis shows that the dissimilar discourses and techniques of control advanced by the 'new management' and the 'old administrators' frame and discipline their worldview. It is argued that NPM and the institutionalized managerial discourse at the CCV produce competing subjectivities that impede change and that NPM changes governmentality on the textual level but that such changes are resisted in practice.



Keywords: Public sector reform, Power/knowledge, Disciplinary power, Governmentality, Subjectivity.
