    Abstract [en]

    What affect the project participants’ motivation in projects that have a relatively long period of time set aside for implementation and with relatively large resources?

    An empirical case study was conducted to answer the question about motivation in long projects by using qualitative interviews of six project participants and one project manager in a company in the customs sector. These seven people were allocated to an IT development project. Herzberg´s two-factor theory was used to describe the factors that influenced the respondents’ motivation.

    There are mainly three types of events that affects the project participants’ motivation. These are events that can be linked to the project phase transitions, events related to project objectives and events about the project’s methodology.

    Finally, it can be stated that it is the contextual uncertainty that primarily affect the project participants’ motivation in a project going on for a long time. Thus the changes in the business environment between the time of the planning of the project and when the project objectives are evaluated.

    Kulturprojekt och framgång: Hur statligt finansierade kulturinstitutioner ser på ett lyckat projektresultat2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to increase the knowledge about the special characteristics of cultural projects by examining what the desired outcome is and the factors that are critical to a projects success or failure. The focus of the study is the cultural institutions in Värmland which annually receive government subsidies through the collaboration model. The study is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews with representatives from the institutions where they talk about their respective institutions' activities and projects. The empirical data was then analyzed against a previously designed success model by Fors and Svedberg (2015) that illustrates success factors for cultural projects, and to then identify the institutions view of successful projects. The research results showed that the institutions main objectives, and what they hope to achieve, is productions and projects of high artistic quality rather than economic gain. The result also showed that the cultural goals are considered more as guidelines than direct requirements.
