In a world of ?formal organizations?, which is constantly exposed for institutionalized super standards and ideas of a what a modern orgnization should be like, the pressure for changes are strong. This is the environment in which Lund University finds itself. Ideas in the beginning of the 21-century is concerning a stronger emfasis on steering, centralisation, re-hieriarchyzation, standardised processes and a new regulation concerning internal control. Through theories of new institutionalism, with conceptions as organizational identity and the expectations of adapting to new ideas, can you track the translation and adaptation that the ideas go through at the university- a decentralised organization where not only freedom has been a concept for the academic parts, but also for the administration. The translation includes different ideas, since the university finds itself different from other organizations, not as much copying as inspiration and adjustments of very general ideas. The general ideas are plenty, but no one is allowed to dominate. In that way everyone can find an idea that they like and there are no radical changes in one certin direction and the most challenging and radical aspects can be ironed out. By accentuate that it is a administrative reform, academic values are not challenged. (Less)
