To better build this understanding a case study was conducted during the fall and spring of 20142015 in which six middle managers were interviewed on the subject of leading change within a professional organization. The study comes to the conclusions that in order for a change to be led in a professional organization, such as the Swedish Public Dental Service, a large focus needs to be put on the middle managers, their working conditions. their loyalties and their professional background.
