Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Bachelor’s thesis was to examine the internal information management at BoråsBorås TME AB via a case study. In order to achieve this purpose an Information Audit was conducted. The theoretical framework or model for the audit was that of Buchanan and Gibb. Data for the study was collected using focus group interviews and policy documents. The interviews were analyzed with the help of qualitative content analysis. The theoretical model of Choo’s Information management cycle was used to further describe the organizations internal information management. The results show a lack of predetermined routines and policies regarding information management and the use of information resources. Furthermore, the unit K: , Facebook and the weekly Thursday staff meeting were identified as the three most important resources for internal information management. In accordance with the information audit an organization description was completed using policy documents. The author also presents four suggestions for action plans with the help of the results of the content analysis. The study revealed that the internal information management was rather good. This was due to the rather small size of the organization and that the staff had a well functioning cooperation. This cooperation is described as somewhat problematic as friction between some departments was identified.
