Robust system för reglerering utan överordnad styrning

I denna uppsats har jag undersökt metoder för förvaltande av kunskap samt lärande på arbetsplatsen genom att utgå ifrån personalens expertkunskaper inom sitt arbete och hur företag kan ta tillvara dessa. Den samlade kunskapen som finns på företag är ett värdefullt verktyg. Om den skulle varit möjligt att ta tillvara den på ett effektivt sätt skulle både medarbetare och företagets utveckling kunna dra stor nytta av det. Jag har undersökt hur denna kunskap skulle kunna förvaltas för att de anställda ska kunna få mer ansvar och möjlighet att förbättra sin arbetsplats med hjälp av olika metoder. Detta har jag gjort i samarbete med företaget Jidoka Innovation och deras metoder under samlingsnamnet HelpMe. Mitt case har varit Santa Marias tortillafabrik i Vadensjö. Därhar jag tillsammans med personalen utvecklat och utvärderat HelpMe:s metodik för att skapa en effektivare produktionsprocess.

Furthermore, as project organisations aim at accomplishing long-term business strategies through short-term operational projects, the discussion about the importance and meaning of knowledge in projects has become of interest. There is also indications of that there is no natural knowledge transfer within a project, and it can be difficult to ensure a transfer of knowledge after the completion of a project.
