Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results from a research study conducted at five local banks operating in the Swedish province of Smoland. During this research 26 interviews with bank managers and employees have been conducted. This qualitative study has been done in order to raise the understanding of how knowledge management functions in financial institutions. The idea behind the research emerged from the researchers’ own interest in the financial sector and the increased media reporting as of the financial crisis. The research process began with a pilot study of one financial actor in the city of Växjö, Sweden. In order to raise the trustworthiness of the pilot study, this research was expanded to a broader range of financial institutions. This broader study indicates that financial institutions can be seen as dynamic organizations and that employees seem to accept change as a part of the organizations’ way of working. The last decade’s progress towards an information society has also enhanced the usage of computer-based learning and this way of shaping knowledge has decreased the usage of networks which is viewed as an important component for knowledge sharing. Networks complement employees’ own limitations and can be used as a way to learn new things with the assistance of others. In the same time the findings indicate that financial institutions tend to move towards a more decentralized way of operating even if the increased level of decentralization creates risks when it comes to shaping joined visions, strategies as well as general organizational goals. This decentralization makes it harder to view the bigger picture at the same time as it simplifies for local actors to adjust according to their customers’ needs.
