Fredrika Swenson: Winner “Thesis of the Year” 2022
The winner of the Swedish Project Academy’s essay prize 2022 has been chosen. Fredrika Swenson from Karlstad University won with the thesis “No man is an island: About leadership in projects when the distributed work is forced.”
The results of the thesis are also relevant for the period after Covid-19 to focus on how we can use work and leadership at a distance in parallel with the physical. The results are divided into three themes; ‘Capture the day’, ‘No man is an island’, and ‘the winds of change’.
The Swedish Project Academy’s task is to promote the development and application of the project work form in Swedish working life. As part of these efforts, the academy announces an annual dissertation prize for students who have successfully defended a degree project at bachelor’s or master’s level (corresponding to C / D dissertation) with a focus on project management and project-organized companies.
