Ett steg framåt och två bakåt?: One step forward and two backwards? - A case study of changes within public administration

Abstract [en]

This thesis is a case study of changes within public administration. The purpose is to describe and discuss changes inspired by New Public Management within public administration. These changes will also be studied a bit further in order to find out whether they have been effected by any form of path dependency.

In order to fulfil the purpose of the thesis I intend to formulate my main question as follows:

• Does path dependency effect the possibility for changes within public administration?

To be able to answer my main question and fulfil the purpose of the thesis I have chosen to study the county planning commission in Trollhättan. Here I have selected a few changes concerning the possibility to handle various permissions in an efficient way. To examine whether these changes have been effected by any path dependency, a number of interviews were undertaken with representatives from the administration of my case.

After analysing these interviews the answer to my main question is, yes. The change process has all together been effected by path dependency, which has delayed the implementation and in some sense also worsened the possibility of in an effective way handling various permissions in the county commission.
