Abstract

"Research on coaching in sports has long been concerned with how coaches interact with their players. In recent years, more research in sports psychology has been conducted on the coach’s role. However, research on coaches’ co-operation with leaders and staff in the clubs has received little attention. There is reason to argue that the way coaches handle this part of their profession can have a huge impact on how well they are able to do their job. This study explores how three experienced Norwegian elite football coaches (average 25 years of elite experience) interact with others in their clubs creating room for themselves and achieving their goals through micro-political activity and orchestration, i.e. coaches’ actions to increase their own influence and power within the organization. We collected data through semi-structured interviews. Then we used content analysis based on a theoretical framework consisting of the orchestration metaphor and studies on micropolitics and the three aspects of micropolitical proficiency. The results and discussion describe how the coaches handle the negotiation process before joining a club, how they handle managers and employees, and how they have developed their micropolitical skills through their careers. Their knowledge about and attention to these processes were integral parts of their coaching and leadership challenges. Knowledge of orchestration and micropolitics seemed to be important for the coaches in the current study. We therefore provide some suggestions as to how coaches can improve their ability to handle these elements in coach education and suggest possible future research and applied implications for coaches."

Abstract

"The health sector is a complex and dynamic conglomerate of services at local, regional and national levels. How to balance different considerations between new medical-professional knowledge, controlling expenses and local interests are among the permanent challenges facing political bodies when planning and structuring the services. The book is based upon institutionalist organisation theories, referring back to classic texts as well as present-day analyses. By taking a long-term perspective, and analysing one Norwegian county as a case study, the author addresses questions about how conflicts on hospital structure seemingly have been solved, and how the introduction of new management forms have changed the sector. One of the issues is how, in a 40 years’ perspective, different interest groups have seen their influence over health services and management forms have changed. In contrast to hypotheses that medical doctors would see their influence becoming reduced, the analyses show how medical actors, in an alliance with management consultants, have become more influential when innovations in health work and eventually organisation models are introduced. Regional political bodies and local community interests have lost much of their former role in restructuring processes. At the end of the book, the author makes some hypotheses about how health services will develop in the interface between ideas of a centralised, modern, high tech hospital model on one hand, and local and home based services on the other. These developments will in a nearby future most likely restructure the health sector once more. "
