Leaders and teams without the right conditions can never attain maximum performance : A study of three different production operations within the Volvo Group (engelsk)
Abstract [en]

This thesis has been conducted at Volvo Bussar AB

under a period of ten weeks. Within the organization

Volvo, the work is conducted with leaders and teams

on every level; from production to top management.

They have three tasks, besides executing their daily

work, they are expected to actively work on improving

their individual work as well as themselves as persons.

The two latter are future value adding activities for the

organization. When doing so, however, it has been

noticed that they often lose the grasp of their daily

work. The question that consequently arises is why

this happens. Is it because of lack of time or it is

because the co-workers do not have the competence

and simply do not know how they are to execute the

three tasks? Or, is it because the motivation to execute

the three tasks is not enough? With this in regard, the

statement of issues for this bachelor thesis were the

following: how can the conditions for leaders and the

team be improved, in order for them to execute these

three tasks.

To find out why the execution of these three

assigments did not always succeed, the decision was

taken to conduct a survey and interview study in real

life and at the plants. The aim for this was to find

differences and similarities between the plants, and

based on this, develop recommendations for

improvement. Before the interviews and surveys were

implemented, a lot of facts where gathered with the

purpose of creating a solid foundation to compare the

results with. One pilot interview was also done before

the real ones to process the questions. The plants

which were selected to participate were Braås (Volvo

Construction Equipment), Borås (Volvo Bus

Corporation) and Skövde (Group Trucks Operations).

After the interviews and surveys were conducted,

compiled and analyzed, areas of improvement could

be made clear.

The thesis contains a number of recommendations in

different areas for Volvo Bus Corporation in order to

improve the current conditions of the team and the

leaders. Areas for improvement are communication,

diversity and development. Furthermore, we

recommend the Volvo Group to place the team and

their professional development in focus. The

development team will be enriched with knowledge

and find it easier to meet their leaders. All this

contributes to conditions for improvement of the three

tasks. Finally, the Volvo Group should aim to work

more with the monitoring of leadership and also

develop a strategy for how to respond, include and

support agency staff.
