Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här undersökningen är att studera vilken relation som finns mellan sammanhållning och motivation, prestation och kommunikation i en arbetsgrupp. För att undersöka detta har vi utgått ifrån två frågeställningar: vilken relation finns mellan gruppsammanhållningen och individens upplevelse av prestation och motivation i ett IT-företag? och vilken relation finns mellan gruppsammanhållning och kommunikation? Vi har svarat på våra frågeställningar utifrån nio semistrukturerade intervjuer gjorda i en arbetsgrupp på företaget Hewlett-Packard (HP) i Göteborg. Resultatet vi har fått fram genom intervjuerna har sedan analyserats utifrån relevanta, socialpsykologiska teorier och vi har i vår uppsats kommit fram till att sammanhållningen i stor utsträckning påverkar de enskilda individernas motivation, prestation och kommunikation. Vi har även kommit fram till att motivation, prestation och kommunikation i sin tur påverkar hur sammanhållningen utvecklas.

Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this fieldwork is to study the relation between group cohesion and motivation, performance and communication in a work group. We have used the following questions as our starting point for the research: which is the relation between group cohesion and the individual experience of performance and motivation in an IT-company? And which is the relation between group cohesion and communication? To gather data for our study we used nine semi-structured interviews from a work group in the IT-company Hewlett-Packard (HP) in Gothenburg. The results we gathered through the interviews are analyzed based on relevant theories from the social psychology field and our conclusion from the study is that group cohesion affects the individual motivation, performance and communication. We also concluded that motivation, performance and communication affect the development of group cohesion.
