Abstract [en]

My purpose is to describe and analyse how care managers experience their position as middle managers in the public sector. I have used a qualitative interview method to answer this question and also to capture my six interview persons opinion and understanding of their own position as middle managers. From my six interviews I noticed some difference in their opinions about how it is being a care manger. The results show that the role as care managers have challenges such as to intertwine their own notion how the caring of the elder should be with strict politic decisions. Other challenges are the limitation of economic recourses and reorganisations. Within the public service care mangers have opportunities to be part of the new changes with interesting comments or directives that the government would like to implement. My result can be understood with the street level bureaucracy and the difference between the concepts leadership and management. Finally I should clarify that my definition between the management and leadership was important to the respondent’s view of themselves and situations in their professional role as care managers. To have and be a manager could be understood with the help of the employment. As care manager you know what you get and can do, and also how the limitations impact them currently in difference situations.
