Syfte: Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att utforska ledarskap inom byggbranschen.

Metod: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts. Utgångspunkten i studien har varit en induktiv ansats.

Teoretiska perspektiv: Studiens perspektiv är ledarskap och social identitet. Fokus har varit stilorienterat ledarskap, situationsorienterat ledarskap och modellen The Managerial Grid. Fokus har också varit på McGregors Teori X och Teori Y.

Empiri: Tio semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts med nio arbetsledare på åtta byggprojekt inom MVB i Skåne. En intervju hölls med en av projektens platschef.

Slutsatser: Vi har funnit att ackordssystemet påverkar arbetsledarnas ledarskap genom att skiften mellan olika ledarskapsroller sker. Vi ser också att synen på ledarskap är delad i en instrumentell syn och en modern syn samt att det förekommer ett glapp mellan dessa två synsätt. (Less)
