Title Practise Leadership in Practise
Author Arvidsson, Per
Date 2019
English abstract
Introduction: Research on implementation of disability policy has to a high degree focused on policy issues and evaluating the outcome. This ongoing study focuses on organisational aspects and uses actor‐network theory (ANT) as the theoretical perspective. Methods: By teaming up with the municipal disability services in the City of Malmo, results from the study will be supplemented and adapted for implementation. By semi‐structured interviews with key persons and quantitative human resources data, this follow up study aims to map out the occurrence of functions, roles and elements associated to the concept of Practice Leadership. Results: Results from the main ANT‐study, point out the significance of how person‐centred support is governed and organised, as well as the importance of the role of front‐line managers. Further, the organising shows an arbitrary element of self‐organising, and at the same time, innovative and knowledge‐driven efforts to shape new organisational structures. One conclusion is that further efforts of implementation could benefit from elaborating current research on Practice Leadership. Implications: A strategic and long‐term collaboration between service providers, researchers and educational institutions, creates a common ground for organisational structures that are anchored and supported by the educational system. This lays a foundation for a sustainable development regarding the professionalisation of disability services.
