Key words: Public sector, Professional Bureaucracy, Organizational structure, Formal
structure, Informal structure, Pre-School Administration in Malmo City.
Purpose: To gain understanding how different images of an organisation’s structure may arise
and recognize the significance and function of the different images.
Methodology: A qualitative case study. Primary data was retrieved through seven semistructured
interviews and minor complementary observations.
Theoretical perspectives: The Professional Bureaucracy, Formal and Informal Organization.
Empirical foundation: Collection of empirical data through conducting seven semi-structured
interviews with personnel from the Pre-School Administration in Malmo City along with minor
complementary observations.
Conclusions: This study illustrates that an organization may display multiple images of the
organizational structure. As current research describes the formal and informal organization,
this report presents an additional dimension; the official image. Since it is not always evident
what belongs to the formal or informal organization, a more in depth breakdown may be
necessary. This research depicts three different images, "The Official Image", "The Formal
Image" and "The Informal Image" of a public organization. The Official Image is what the
organization portrays in order to accommodate public demand. The Formal Image, accounts
for the written rules and regulations that organizations must adhere too and The Informal
Image is the actual organizational structure. All three images fulfill a purpose and are closely
connected, this report will attempt to define them more closely. (Less)
