THE SITE MANAGERS ABILITY TO INCREASE PRODOCTIVITY (English)
Abstract [sv]

studier visar en låg produktivitet jämfört med andra branscher men också komplexiteten av produktivitetsmätningar. Syftet med rapporten är att undersöka platschefens roll och vilka faktorer som påverkar förmågan att få ut produktiviteten på en byggarbetsplats. Fallstudien genomfördes på fyra av Peabs projekt och frågeställningen besvarades med hjälp av kvalitativa och kvantitativa metoder i form av intervjuer och enkätundersökningar. Vidare undersöks produktivitetspåverkande faktorer såsom kommunikation, motivation, kompetens och samarbete. Vid jämförelse används en incitamentkvot som ställs i relation till enkätundersökningarna och intervjuerna.

Resultatet visar tydliga skillnader mellan platschefernas förmågor, arbetssätt och egenskaper som leder till en skillnad i produktivitet på arbetsplatserna.

Slutsatsen visar vilka egenskaper och arbetssätt som tenderar i att ge en hög produktivitet.

Abstract [en]

The construction industry has been criticised for lacking productivity. Previous reports and studies show a low productivity compared to other industries but also the complexity of productivity measurement. The report aims to examine the site manager's role and the factors that affect the ability to get out productivity on a construction site. The case study was conducted on four of Peab's projects and the issues were answered using qualitative and quantitative methods such as interviews and surveys. Factors that affect productivity such as communication, motivation, competence and cooperation are further investigated. As comparison, an incentive quota imposed in relation to the questionnaires and interviews, are applied.

The results show clear differences between site managers' abilities, methods and qualities that lead to a difference in productivity in the workplace.

The conclusion shows what qualities and methods that tend to give a high productivity.
