Short description

The utilization project will create user-friendly and
cost-effective concepts in change work with managers' actual conditions.

The CHEFiOS project has developed four instruments that show: "How managers are doing", "What managers do", "Organizational structures and Communication patterns" and "How the business is located". Six administrations in four municipalities in Western Sweden have participated in the intervention. During the year following the presentation of the results, the administrations carried out a change work. The administrations' work forms the basis for the model for "favorable conditions for change work" created. In general, the results show that the management's management groups have gained a great deal of insight into, and worked on, improvements in managers' conditions.
