    Abstract [en]

    Research describes that leadership and employeeship are at both important phenomenon. Despite this indication, the interest and knowledge of leadership is much wider than the knowledge of employeeship (Tengblad, 2009). Unlike previous research, this study will focus on the employee's perception of the phenomenon of autonomous groups. The authors of this study acknowledged a lack of research related to autonomous groups from an employee perspective. This led to a commitment to the study's purpose, which is based on creating a deeper understanding of autonomous groups from an employee perspective. The purpose of the study is to create a deeper understanding of autonomous groups, from an employee perspective. The authors of this study also wanted to recognize the advantages and disadvantages that can arise for employees in an autonomous group.This study will also contribute with an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages that can arise for employees in an autonomous group. The specificorganization that has been investigated is Jönköping kommun, of which autonomous groups are commonly used. Employees in a specific group of caregivers for elderly people are the main focus for this study.The study has an abductive approach where the datacollection is obtained through a qualitative method. This enables the understanding of the most important aspects of autonomous groups. It also captures the employees perceptions in order to get a clearer picture of this working method. The interesting thing in this study is to see autonomous groups from the perspective of the employee. Does the employee feel that there are any advantages or disadvantages within an autonomous group? How do we define what an autonomous group really is?It appears that employees do not relate to being a autonomous group in practice. The interesting thing is that previous studies and research show that the concept is interpreted differently by organizations and a few definitions have been written down on paper. This creates problems because there are different perceptions about the meaning of what autonomous groups really are (Frandsen, et al., 2000). The result of the study has presented newly emerging concepts related to autonomous groups from an employee perspective. The employees define themselves as a codetermination group before being an autonomous group. The working method of the group is primarily characterized by affective work and control. 4The results of this study also presents that leadership and employeeship have a connection with regards to autonomous groups.
