Abstract [sv]

Mellanchefer i en kommun befinner sig i en position där de har förvaltningens krav ovanifrån samtidigt som de ska se till medarbetarnas behov och förväntningar. Första syftet med studien var att mäta kompetensutvecklingsbehovet hos ett antal mellanchefer i Kungsbacka kommun. Studien utfördes med en kvantitativ metod där enkäter skickades ut till samtliga enhetschefer. De grupper som jämfördes var enhetschefer som arbetat 0-2 år, 5-10 år samt mer än 10 år inom kommunen. Det skulle undersökas om behovet av kompetensutveckling var olika stort beroende på hur lång tid man arbetet som chef inom kommunen. Studiens andra syfte var att mäta behovet av ett ökat socialt nätverk och studera om detta behov var olika stort beroende på hur lång tid man arbetat som chef inom kommunen. Resultatet i studien visade ingen statistisk signifikant skillnad i behovet av kompetensutveckling. Det visade sig att det fanns en medelstor skillnad i medelvärdena mellan grupp 0-2 år och grupp 5-10 år, det innebär att grupp 5-10 år har ett större behov av kompetensutveckling. Det fanns ingen statistisk signifikant skillnad i behovet av ett ökat socialt nätverk, beroende på hur lång tid man arbetat som enhetschef

Abstract [en]

A middle manager´s position is complicated with both the need from the employee and the requirement from the management to be taken into account. This study´s first purpose was to determine the degree of competence development with middle managers in Kungsbacka, Sweden. A survey was sent to all middle managers within the municipality and was analyzed through a quantitative method. The intervals used were 0-2 years, 5-10 and more than 10 of working within the municipality. The study would determine if there were any differences depending on the number of years they´ve been working as managers. The second purpose of the study was to determine the need for increased social support depending on the number of years worked within the municipality. The results showed no significant differences in the need of competence development. It showed a medium to large difference between the group 0-2 years and group 5-10 years. This means that group 5-10 years has a bigger need of competence development. There were no significant differences in the need of social support. The result showed no significant difference of competence development need in the interval group of 0-2 years in comparison to the interval group of 5-10 years and the group of more than 10 years. A medium effect size was discovered between the groups 0-2 years and more than 10 years. There was no significant difference in the need of social support depending on the number of years they worked within the municipality
