Abstract [en]

Background

Explore the mystery of seasonal organizations and how they are able to (re)create themselves as “the same” after a period of dormancy.

Aim

To find out the organizational mechanisms that enables such (re)creation.

Methodology

This qualitative study was done at Astrid Lindgren’s World, a seasonal organization open from mid-May until the beginning of November. The study conducted ten interviews with both permanent and seasonal employees to find out how a year in the organization looked like to later be able to identify the seasonal mechanism.

Findings

This study has provided seven organizational mechanisms that are vital for Astrid Lindgren’s World to (re)create itself as “the same” from season to season.

Concepts

Regeneration: the process of reproducing a seasonal organization as “the same” from season to season.(Re)create: The creation of an organization that has previously been existent.“The same”: Due to individuals being subjective an organization cannot completely be (re)created as exactly the same, but rather very similar.
