Abstract [en]

Background: Budgets has always been a main factor for the management of organisations. Yet, lately has the role of budgets been increasingly questioned. But how is an organisation managed without budgets and what other alternatives can be used? And can these instruments work more effective?

Purpose: The purpose of this essay is to describe how non-budget management distinguish compare to traditional management and how to design an effective non-budget system of management. Furthermore we intend to explain the reasons to such management and to present a model for how such a management can be performed.

Research method: Empirical material has been performed based on seven interviews with persons within Svenska Handelsbanken. The study is a case study of Svenska Handelsbanken and their management control system.

Results: Management without budgets can, in several cases, work more effective compared to traditional management. Through a plain focus at relative goals and a high degree of responsibility to the individual can the organisation perform with a higher effectiveness? Finally we present a suggestion on such a working method and what it ought to be contained.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Budgets har varit ett centralt styrmedel för organisationer under lång tid. Under senare tid har dock dess relevans alltmer ifrågasatts. Hur styrs då en verksamhet utan budgets och vilka andra alternativ finns till en budget? Kan dessa i så fall fungera mer effektivt?

Syfte: Syftet med denna uppsats är att beskriva hur budgetlös ekonomistyrning skiljer sig från traditionell budgetstyrning och hur ett sådant styrsystem i så fall är utformat. Vidare ämnar vi förklara vad orsakerna till sådan styrning är samt presentera en generell modell för hur budgetlös styrning kan bedrivas.

Genomförande: Empiriskt material har samlats in genom intervjuer med sju personer med olika befattning inom Svenska Handelsbanken. Undersökningen är en fallstudie av Svenska Handelsbanken och dess nuvarande ekonomiska styrsystem.

Resultat: En ekonomisk styrning utan budgets kan i många fall fungera bättre en traditionell ekonomistyrning samt vara mindre resurskrävande. Genom ett tydligt fokus på relativa mål samt stort handlingsutrymme för individen kan organisationen bedrivas mer effektivt. Ett förslag på en sådan arbetsmetod samt vad den bör innehålla presenteras i undersökningens slutsats.
