Kommunen på en ny måde

Student thesis: Master executive thesis


This master project highlights the potential role of adaptive and ambidextrous leadership strategies in reform of public sector government. With increasing expectations to welfare and only limited financial resources, there is a need to explore new forms of welfare provision, while continuing to provide everyday public services. Drawing upon the case of Slagelse Municipality the paper explores the way in these competing activities of exploitation and experimentation can be integrated at a departmental level. The paper suggests contextual ambidexterity as one possible solution to the challenges faced by the public sector, and describes the necessary conditions for establishing it.
