Productivity with focus on skilled workers (English)
Abstract [sv]

I en rapport från Konjunkturinstitutet (2010) framkommer att produktivitets-utvecklingen i den svenska byggbranschen stått still sen mitten på 90-talet. Detta samtidigt som övriga näringslivet ökat sin produktivitet kraftigt under samma period. Denna skillnad i produktivitetsutveckling skulle kunna betyda att det finns mycket arbete kvar att göra för en ökad produktivitet i byggbranschen.

För att få en högre produktivitet i byggbranschen krävs det att de som utför arbetet har en strävan efter att vara produktiv. Denna strävan påverkas av mjuka faktorer som t.ex. incitament, engagemang och psykosocial arbetsmiljö. Syftet med detta examensarbete är att få insikt i vilka mjuka faktorer som påverkar produktiviteten hos yrkesarbetarna i ett byggprojekt.

Studien jämför fyra byggprojekt med olika produktivitetsnivåer genom kvalitativa intervjuer. Detta för att kunna identifiera vilka mjuka faktorer som påverkar produktiviteten positivt. Faktorer som studerats är incitament, motivation, kommunikation, kompetens, engagemang, team samt psykosocial arbetsmiljö.

Resultatet visar tydliga skillnader mellan projekt gällande de studerade faktorerna. Slutsatsen är att de studerade faktorerna är viktiga för att nå god produktivitet på byggarbetsplatsen.

Abstract [en]

In a report from Konjunkturinstitutet (2010) is found that productivity growth in the Swedish construction industry has stood still since the mid 90s. This while the rest of the economy has increased their productivity significantly during the same period. This difference in productivity development could mean that there is much work left to do for increased productivity in the construction industry.

To get a higher productivity in the construction industry requires that the person doing the work has an aspiration to be productive. This aspiration is influenced by soft factors such as incentives, commitment, and psychosocial work environment. The aim of this thesis is to gain insight into the soft factors that affect the productivity of skilled workers in a construction project.

The study compares four construction projects with different productivity levels through qualitative interviews. This is to identify the soft factors that affect productivity positively. Factors studied include incentives, motivation, communication, competence, commitment, teamwork and psychosocial work environment.

The results show clear differences between the projects regarding the studied factors. The conclusion is that the studied factors are important in achieving good productivity at the construction site.
