Tillitsbaserad styrning: implementering och arbetsmiljö. En kulturanalytisk undersökning med fokus på kommunala kulturförvaltningar.
The study is based on the questions: What does trust-based management mean in daily work? Has trust-based management led to any changes in the work environment? How has the implementation of trust-based management been conducted? The respondents have a theoretical understanding of trust-based management, but sometimes lacking in the connection to practical application. Trust-based management has brought an increase in maneuverability and creativity, greater trust, and reduced measurements of work tasks. The implementation has been conducted “from the top down”, which has raised concerns that it is but a temporary trend that can be replaced in the event of a political change of power. The answers indicate that the implementation is a “lip service,” as the workplace culture and leadership has not changed. At the same time, there are signs that the trust-based management philosophy has had an impact. The respondents are aware of what constitutes a good work environment, but the extent to which trust-based management has had an impact on their own work environment differs. For some, not much has changed, but aspects of trust-based management are nevertheless part of a good work environment for them.
