Abstract [sv]

Sedan 1980-talet har New Public Management (NPM) varit den dominerande styrfilosofin inom offentlig sektor i Sverige. NPM har framförallt varit förknippat med resultat- och målstyrning och har förväntats öka effektiviteten inom den offentliga sektorn. Idag genomförs en reform av styrningen inom den offentliga sektorn där det nya styrsättet går under benämningen tillitsbaserad styrning. Det syftar främst till att öka tilliten till professionerna och medborgarna. Denna studie utgör en kvalitativ fallstudie av Skatteverkets implementering av den tillitsbaserade styrningen och de utmaningar som uppkommer i samband med detta. Studien har genomförts på Skatteverkets kontor i Luleå, där chefer och medarbetare har djupintervjuats i två faser. En tematisk analys har använts för att analysera insamlade data och fyra huvudsakliga teman har identifierats; teambaserat arbetssätt, medarbetaransvar, kundperspektiv och prestationsutvärdering. Studiens huvudsakliga slutsatser är att Skatteverkets tolkning av tillitsbaserad styrning är ett teambaserat arbetssätt, som implementerats på ett i huvudsak decentraliserat sätt och med viss hjälp av Susan A Wheelans fyrstegsmodell. Vidare kan konkluderas att den största utmaningen är att anpassa prestationsutvärderingen efter det nya arbetssättet.

Abstract [en]

Since the 1980’s, the New Public Management (NPM) has been the dominating management control philosophy in the Swedish public sector organizations. NPM has predominantly been associated with management by objective and has been expected to increase efficiency within public sector organizations. Today the control system in Swedish public sector organizations is undergoing reform with a new system called trust-based control. The foremost purpose of this new control system is to increase trust within the professions and to the citizens. This study is a qualitative case study of the Swedish Tax Agency’s implementation of the trust-based control system and the challenges that this implementation entails. The study was conducted at the Swedish Tax Agency’s office in Luleå, where managers and employees were interviewed in two stages. A thematic analysis was applied to process the data, in which four main themes appeared; team-based mode of operation, employee responsibility, customer perspective and performance evaluation. The main conclusions of the study are that the Swedish Tax Agency’s interpretation of trust-based control is a team-based mode of operation. The implementation process has been primarily decentralized, with some aid from Susan A. Wheelan’s four-stage model. Furthermore, it is concluded that the foremost challenge with implementing trust-based control is to adjust the performance evaluation to fit the new mode of operation.
