dc.description This is a revised version of a paper presented at the UNI-Rokkan seminar in Paris 18–20 March 2010 and the 2010 IRSPM Conference held in Bern, Switzerland 7–9. April. Panel on: Working Across Boundaries: Barriers, Enablers, Tensions and Puzzles. en
dc.description.abstract In this paper we address the problems of working across boundaries in central government by focusing on the case of Norway. The main research questions are: a) How common is the use of working or project groups inside the ministries, across ministries, and between ministries and central agencies? b) What changes have there been over time in the use of such cross-border collegial bodies? c) To what extent does participation in cross-boundary activities vary according to individual and organizational features? d) What is the relationship between participation in working and project groups and attitudes towards coordination? The main theoretical approach to explain variation in collegial participation and its effects will be a structural/instrumental perspective and a demographic perspective. We apply a multi-level analysis examining the effects of both individual features and organizational features of the ministries as a whole. en
dc.description.abstract I dette notatet rettes oppmerksomheten mot samarbeid på tvers av organisasjonsgrenser i norsk setralforvaltning. Følgende tre problemstillinger diskuteres: a) hvor utbredt er bruken av arbeidsgrupper og prosjektgrupper internt i deptartementene, mellom departement og mellom departement og underliggende enheter; b) hvilke endringar har skjedd over tid i bruken av slike kollegiale organ; c) i hvilken grad varierer deltakelsen i slike aktiviteter med individuelle og organisatoriske kjennetegn; d) i hvilken grad påvirker deltakelse i slike tverrgående grupper de ansattes holdninger til samordning. Et strukturelt-instrumentelt og et demografisk perspektiv benyttes for å forklare variasjoner i deltakelse i kollegiale organer og effekten av slik deltakelse. Det benyttes en flernivåanlyse for å undersøke effekter både av individuelle trekk og av organisatoriske kjennetegn ved departementene. en
