    Managerial Challenges in Creating Sustainable Development Work (Lean): An interactive case study from socio-technical perspectivesManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - At present, healthcare organizations are facing both quality and financial challenges. Consequently, organizations in this sector have started to introduce Lean inspired production concepts in order to become more efficient and effective. The implementation of Lean in healthcare is not unproblematic, especially not within psychiatry, the context of which differs greatly from other sectors where it is more usual to see Lean implemented. The aim of this article is to identify managerial preconditions for the implementation of a sustainable Lean organization at a psychiatry division in a Swedish university hospital.

    Design/methodology/approach – An interactive case study approach was chosen with the purpose of gaining deeper knowledge and understanding of the first-line managers’ role during implementation of Lean. Focus group interviews together with 24 first-line managers were conducted. In the analysis, a socio-technical perspective was used due to the characteristics of the psychiatry healthcare context but also from a sustainability perspective. The empirical data from the focus group interviews were also complemented with a semi-structured interview with a key actor.

    Findings – Development work is context dependent and so is the implementation of Lean. This particular case study points out that clarity of the organizational structures within the Lean work, i.e. objectives and roles, affects the level of participation and consequently the sustainability of the Lean implementation. The empirical findings also show that a managerial lack of power and authority make it difficult for first-line managers (the majority being nurses) to prioritize engagement and time spent in Lean work.

    Originality/value – At present there are few studies on the implementation of Lean within the psychiatry healthcare sector and in a socio-technical context. In this article a model is presented, visualizing managerial preconditions for sustainable Lean in the context presented.

    Sustainable Lean in psychiatry?: Assessment through socio-technical principles2016In: International Journal of Quality and Service Sciences, ISSN 1756-669X, E-ISSN 1756-6703, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 53-71Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to identify conditions affecting sustainability of Lean implementations in Swedish psychiatric healthcare, from a socio-technical perspective. Design/methodology/approach – Longitudinal focus group interviews were conducted with 24 first-line managers within Swedish psychiatric healthcare. The analysis was made using Cherns’ ten socio-technical principles and a framework for sustainable development work in healthcare. Findings – The most critical socio-technical principles for a sustainable Lean implementation were boundary location; power and authority; and compatibility. At hospital level, socio-technical principles were inhibited by the weak ownership of the Lean implementation. However, strong ownership at division level meant the same principles were supported. Unclear goals made follow-ups difficult which had negative effects on the learning processes in the Lean implementation. The role and responsibility of first-line managers were unclear in that they perceived they lacked power and authority resulting in negative effects on the participation – an important sustainability concept. Originality/value – Empirically based papers assessing Lean implementations in psychiatry are rare. This study is a contribution to the research area of sustainable Lean implementations in healthcare. The practical implication of this study is that decision makers, senior managers, first-line managers and psychiatrists can be supported in reaching sustainable implementations of Lean.

    Occupational safety and health professionals’ skills – A call for system understanding?: Experiences from a co-operative inquiry within the manufacturing sector2018In: Applied Ergonomics, ISSN 0003-6870, E-ISSN 1872-9126, Vol. 70, p. 279-287Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sector specific skills in occupational safety and health (OS&H) are crucial for being able to contribute to good work environment and decrease today's high levels of sick absences. Large manufacturing companies are due to tradition good at OS&H and can serve as an interesting context for investigating the knowledge level in the area today, and needs for the future. For this purpose a case study was performed in this sector as a co-operative inquiry, including 10 OS&H professionals (engineers and ergonomists) employed at in-house and external occupational health services (OHS). Professional experiences, good examples from practice and current research were shared jointly within the inquiry. The results show needs to work more preventively than today comprehending aspects as system understanding, integrated work teams, participation, a clear role in change projects plus skills in risk assessments. Skills in how to conduct well-functioning dialogues with stakeholders were also on the agenda.

    Sick Leave - A Signal of Unequal Work Organizations? Gender perspectives on work environment and work organizations in the health care sector: a knowledge review2015In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 85-104Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The background to this article review is governmental interest in finding reasons why a majority of the employees in Sweden who are on sick leave are women. In order to find answers to these questions three issues will be discussed from a meso-level: (i) recent changes in the Swedish health care sector's working organization and their effects on gender, (ii) what research says about work health and gender in the health care sector, and (iii) the meaning of gender at work. The aim is to first discuss these three issues to give a picture of what gender research says concerning work organization and work health, and second to examine the theories behind the issue. In this article the female-dominated health care sector is in focus. This sector strives for efficiency relating to invisible job tasks and emotional work performed by women. In contemporary work organizations gender segregation has a tendency to take on new and subtler forms. One reason for this is today's de-hierarchized and flexible organizations. A burning question connected to this is whether new constructions of masculinities and femininities really are ways of relating to the prevailing norm in a profession or are ways of deconstructing the gender order. To gain a deeper understanding of working life we need multidisciplinary research projects where gender-critical knowledge is interwoven into research not only on organizations, but also into research concerning the physical work environment, in order to be able to develop good and sustainable work environments, in this case in the health care sector.

    Verksamhetsnära arbetsmiljöarbete: Nyttiggörande av branschspecifika kunskaper om arbetsmiljöarbete Implementering av nätverk inom verkstadsindustrin och den kommunala hemtjänsten2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är ett FoU projekt om branschspecifika arbetsmiljökunskaper inom verkstadsindustri och kommunala hemtjänst med företagshälsovård i fokus. Branscherna är varandras motsatser när det gäller aspekter som resurser för ledning och styrning av verksamheten, verksamhetsinriktning, traditioner kring systematiskt arbetsmiljöarbete och könsfördelning.

    Projektets övergripande syfte, var att utveckla tre metoder för att samla in, sprida och nyttiggöra branschspecifik kunskap om arbetsmiljöarbete. De tre metoderna är kompetensnätverk, webbportal för utveckling och spridning av branschspecifika kunskaper om arbetsmiljö samt vidareutbildning för yrkesverksamma inom arbetsmiljöområdet.

    Kunskapsutbyten har varit kärnan i kompetensnätverket för verkstadsindustrin, strategier för att möta motstånd och lösa så kallade problemprojekt identifierades. Viktiga aspekter var ett nära samarbete med kundorganisationen och medarbetare i verksamheten, tvärfunktionella projekt och att medverka från start i förändringsprojekt. I anslutning till dessa faktorer efterlystes tydliga stödstrukturer för ett integrerat och proaktivt arbetsmiljöarbete.

    Två orsaker till sjukskrivningar inom hemtjänsten som kompetensnätverkets medforskare lyfte fram var stora arbetsgrupper samt en hög personalomsättning. Vad som sågs som väsentligt för att motverka dessa två faktorer var ökad delaktighet vid resursfördelning och arbetsplanering. Det sågs även som centralt för utvecklingen av arbetsmiljön i denna bransch att identifiera och synliggöra motivatorer till att vara i arbete inom hemtjänsten. Vidare finns ett identifierat behov av en webbportal där information och kunskaper om arbetsmiljö är samlad. Innehållet i vidareutbildningen baseras på identifierade kunskapsbehov som att bedriva ett integrerat och proaktivt arbetsmiljöarbete.

    Den övergripande slutsatsen kring det branschspecifika är att det finns behov av kunskaper i att leda och driva arbetsmiljöarbete och förstå hur organisationen runt den lokala arbetsplatsen fungerar. Detta gäller för båda branscherna och skulle kunna beskrivas i termer av ett mesoperspektiv på arbetsmiljöarbetet, istället för ett microperspektiv.

    Walking around the pyramids: Managers’ shop-floor activities in Lean-inspired organizations2017In: Economic and Industrial Democracy, ISSN 0143-831X, E-ISSN 1461-7099, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 495-512Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The approach in this article is to study leadership activities from the shop-floor workers’ perspectives during the implementation of a Lean-inspired production concept – an angle of approach that corresponds to a need for a deeper knowledge of the interactions between organizational structures and the physical work environment. The empirical findings are from a national R&D program called the Production Leap and collected through different methods: semi-structured interviews carried out at eight manufacturing companies, the open-ended part of a longitudinal survey, and participative observations. Lean leadership practices at these companies do not enable the possibilities of developing the technical systems or work relationships between the managers and the shop-floor workers. Instead, they provide the means and activities to circumvent coordination problems and create a feeling of participation. The results here indicate that leadership activities and coordination of work do not, as it is sometimes argued by the proponents of Lean, ‘turn the pyramid’ of power upside down. One reason for this is the lack of social structures in the organization.

    Från ord till handling: Forskningsbaserad utveckling av jämställdhetsarbete vid teknisk fakultet2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Det övergripande syftet med projektet har varit att - utveckla fallbeskrivningar för lärande genom en analys av hur det formella och informella jämställdhetsarbetet vid KTH är organiserat och på vilka arenor detta arbete utövas i praktiken, - utifrån fallbeskrivningar iscensätta lärandeprocesser i form av benchlearning om jämställdhetsarbete mellan de tekniska högskolorna i Sverige.

    En central del i metodansatsen är att jämställdhetsarbetets innehåll och form är kontextberoende. Det är inte möjligt att finna en standard för hur jämställdhetsarbete inom högskolan ska bedrivas, utan här krävs ett utvecklingsarbete som tar sin utgångspunkt i de enskilda organisationernas förutsättningar och behov.Projektet delas in i en intern och en extern fas. Den interna fasen består av en lärprocess om KTH:s eget jämställdhetsarbete och är en metodologisk förutsättning för att kunna utveckla benchlearning i den externa fasen.

    I projektets externa fas är fokus på att iscensätta ett lärande i form av benchlearning mellan de medverkande organisationerna, utifrån de lärande exempel som beskrivs i rapporten. Målsättningen är att utveckla ett bestående nätverk för lärande och erfarenhetsutbyte mellan de tekniska högskolorna, där empiri från de egna organisationerna kan ligga till grund.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper a network for knowledge sharing is presented. The network turns to safety and health engineers, ergonomists and researchers working in or with the manufacturing industry. The aim with the network is to strengthen and share sector related knowledge on safety and health. The results show a high interest in this kind of network and that the need for knowledge on how to handle complex situations is in focus, and not how to solve specific one dimensional problems.
