    Abstract

    Since many years ago, Sweden has been in the prominent position regarding economy as well as growth. The fact that Sweden did not participate in the world wars, has given Sweden a great advantage in new processes, new organisation forms and new development.

    However, during the beginning of 21st century this lead has reduced tremendously and many countries have passed Sweden in this development. A great majority of other countries has started to produce those products that Sweden previously produced. Therefore, a change is necessary. Sweden must recapture the lead it once had. Sweden stands in front of great changes, where the leader’s function is more important than ever.

    The purpose with this study is to create an understanding of what´s the most important function in a change for a leader. This has contributed to following question: What may be the leader’s most important function in a change?

    In order to create an understanding concerning the leader’s most significant function, we have throughout the study worked with the relation between leadership and change. This relation has created our theoretical frame of reference where following seven conceptions have been discussed: Delegation, transformational leadership, Communication, situational leadership, Resistance, Motivation and Participation.

    With the intention of getting an answer to this question, a qualitative study has been used where we have formed an interview guide from our theoretical frame of reference. The collection of data was carried out by four interviews at two different companies.

    The result of the study has shown that the leader’s most significant function in a change is to have a leadership through a combination of delegation, good communication, motivation and participation. According to our study, these four connected qualities will in our opinion prevent the emergence of resistance, which is seen as changes biggest threat. Will the future leaders pursue their leadership in change in this way, more and more successful changes will be implemented.
