En jämförelse av avvecklingsprocessen mellan Centrala studiestödsnämnden och Försvarsmakten
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The restructuring, or decrease in the activities of companies or public services frequently necessitates the need for corresponding staff cuts. This phasing out process is defined as personnel winding up.This study concerns the winding up process within two Swedish public authorities; the National Board of Student Aid [Centrala studiestödsnämnden], and the Armed Forces [Försvarsmakten]. We have examined the literature concerning winding up on the organisation level, most of which was found at the Job Security Foundation [Trygghetsstiftelsen]. This thesis presents various changes leading to structural change and in turn to winding up with the help of adjustment strategies. We also included part of the history of winding up, and of the Job Security Foundation, in order to achieve some background and understanding of the subject.Our questions, which deal on the organisation level, were put to the two authorities, where a total of six persons were interviewed. The individuals interviewed were on the managerial level, on the intermediate level (where the requests for adjustment strategies were made), and on the unit level. One thing common to the two authorities is the driving force behind the structural change. Both authorities have felt the need for organisational change, and their funding was decreased. This led to the need for personnel phasing out.The results show that a comparison is difficult due to the difference in size between the two authorities. We also know that they applied the adjustment strategies differently. For the Armed Forces as a whole, the time scale is much longer than that of the National Board of Student Aid.The winding up process of the National Board of Student Aid was comparatively rapid. This authority used an adjustment strategy, as opposed to the Armed Forces, which could have been a decisive factor. In an attempt to eliminate older personnel, the Armed Forces used a number of managerial “tools” that did not have the anticipated effects. This process also resulted in a major loss of staff competence.
