To create effective project groups : with teambuilding as the number one tool (English)
Abstract [en]

In this essay we have investigated how team building can make a project group more effective towards reaching the goals of the project. With this question at issue we have interviewed a couple of project managers in the event industry that we believed was well suited for this research. The purpose of this essay has been to view if team building is used in practice and if so is used with the purpose to make the project groups work more efficient. To reach our purpose we chose to use a qualitative method with a cross-sectional design and semi-structured interviews.In the theoretical reference frame there is one chapter about the project manager's influence on the project group, definition of team building, definition of the project group and how a team is created, the groups different stages and pros and risks with having a friendly work relationship. Among other things we used the FIRO-model that presents which different phases a group goes through.The study came to the conclusion that team building can make a project more efficient by having a project manager that is enthusiastic. Team building can also enhance the chemistry within the project group and help the group to get to know each other in a simple way. For example having lunch together or that the company organizes kick-offs before the project goes into intense periods. The study also came to the conclusion that it is good for the group to get to know one another as long as they stay professional in their work role. It is important that the project group is not afraid to speak their minds to help the project grow.This paper is written in Swedish.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats undersöker hur teambuilding kan effektivisera en projektgrupp mot att nå de uppsatta målen i projektet. Med denna frågeställning som grund har vi intervjuat ett flertal projektledare i eventbranschen som vi ansett passat in i vår studie. Syftet med studien har varit att se om teambuilding används i praktiken och om det i så fall används med syfte att effektivisera projektgruppens arbete. För att nå vårt syfte valde vi att använda oss av en kvalitativ metod med tvärsnittsdesign och semistrukturerade intervjuer.I den teoretiska referensramen har vi med avsnitt om projektledarens påverkan på projektgruppen, definition av teambuilding och projektgruppen, hur ett team skapas, gruppens olika faser samt fördelar och risker med att ha en vänskaplig arbetsrelation. Vi använde bland annat FIRO-modellen som visar på vilka faser en grupp genomgår.Studien resulterade i att vi funnit att teambuilding kan effektivisera projekt genom att ha en projektledare som är entusiasmerande. Teambuilding kan också hjälpa till att skapa personkemi inom gruppen och hjälpa gruppen att lära känna varandra genom ett så enkelt sätt som att äta lunch tillsammans eller att företaget anordnar kick-offer innan intensiva perioder i projektet. Det som studien kommit fram till är att det är till projektets fördel att gruppen lär känna varandra så länge de håller sig professionella och fortfarande inte är rädda för att ge varandra konstruktiv kritik som får projektet att växa.
