Abstract [en]

During production and readiness with units for national and international operations within the operational Air Wings, in Swedish Air Force, new organisations and command structures are created for different missions. Some experiences indicates that management and coordination within the organisation is not well functioning. In the Norwegian Air Force, increased focus on international operations has led to a new organizational structure. Is the organization, within the Swedish operational Air Wing today, suitable for performing the tasks?

 

The method for the study is qualitative analysis of research material and semi structured interviews with Commanders within the organization. The used theory is the Tool Perspective which takes its basis in the rational and instrumental tradition. The organization is here seen as the Commander’s tool to perform assigned tasks.

 

The tasks which are performed on an every day basis within the regular Air Wing organization, is working over all well, both concerning management and activity, according to the respondents. This is also the basis for the national readiness. Here the operational Air Wing works as the Commander’s efficient tool. The shortcomings are described in the borderline between peace time production, readiness and operations and also between national and international focus. Usage of the normal Air Wing staff organization with an explicit command role for the Wing Commander and rallying of resources to the staff is recommended. It is seen as important that the organization always maintains the body of an international operational unit and that the national and international readiness should not be separated. The Air Base Battalion is felt having an unclear organizational domicile with different Commanders depending on activity and should be organized over time with a more explicit operational focus. The Norwegian perspective indicates that it is correct to separate the mobile from the static, operational units and resources.
