Who affects what I should develop? : A qualitative study of managers' experiences about their competence development (English)
Abstract [sv]

Kompetensutveckling är en viktig del i dagens föränderliga samhälle. Syftet med studien var att undersöka chefers upplevelser kring vem och vad som styr samt driver den egna kompetensutvecklingen. Studien genomfördes med en kvalitativ metod där chefer från en kommunal organisation och en privat organisation har intervjuats och ett jämförande perspektiv mellan organisationerna har tagits i beaktande. Ett hermeneutiskt tillvägagångssätt har använts och teman identifierades utifrån chefernas upplevelser. Resultatet påvisade att den egna påverkan var den största påverkansfaktorn på chefers kompetensutveckling men att cheferna även upplevde personalens behov, HR och verksamhetens behov som betydelsefulla påverkansfaktorer. Andra utmärkande teman som uppmärksammades av cheferna som påverkansfaktorer var: den egna chefen, organisationen samt myndigheter. Ämnet kring vad som upplevs styra och driva chefers kompetensutveckling är mindre beforskat och studien bidrar till djupare förståelse och en grund för vidare forskning.

Abstract [en]

Competence development is an important part of today's changing society. The purpose of the study was to investigate managers' experiences of who and what directs and drive their competence development. The study was conducted through a qualitative method in which managers from a municipal organization and a private organization have been interviewed and a comparative perspective between the organizations has been considered. A hermeneutical approach has been used and themes were identified based on the experiences of the managers. The results showed that their own impact was the greatest factor of influence on the managers' competence development. However, they also experienced the needs of staff, HR and the business' needs as significant impact factors. Other distinctive themes that were noted by the managers as impact factors were: their own manager, the organization and the authorities. Research on what is perceived to direct and drive managers' competence development is scarce and the study contributes to deeper understanding and a foundation for further research.
