The Dual Leadership : a Historical Study over the Municipal Topleaders and Their Duties (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Municipalities are organizations facing a turbulent environment characterized by social, economical and political changes. It is the responsibility of the topleaders of the municipality (the municipal manager and the chairman of the local government board) to manage the situation and to make sure that the organization continuously develops.

Purpose: To explain, from a leadership perspective, how the municipal topleaders'duties have developed during the past 25 years.

Results: The municipal topleaders have nowadays got more issues to handle. Cooperation, networks and projects have increased, like international issues. The geographical areas, where the topleaders are acting, have also expanded. Hence representations and marketing have become more important in the topleaders'daily duties. Further their duties are today more and more characterized by leadership tasks. The increased and more demanding duties are gradually delegated. Hence can be stated that the chairman of the local government board, before, used to be both a politician and a civil servant. Nowadays shall he/she only concentrate on political issues and civil servant issues are to be handled by the municipal manager.
