Omvärldsanalys i statliga myndigheter. Framväxt, organisation och arbetsmetoder
Horizon scanning is an ambiguous concept and difficult
to define. Within the context of central government authorities, it can be
interpreted as an umbrella term for a variety of activities that monitors
and analyzes changes in the external environment. As a phenomenon and
discourse, horizon scanning is more common today compared to ten years ago.
More central government authorities have a formal or semi-formal
organization for horizon scanning. Modern information technology and
external consultants play in many cases a central role in development.
Organizational problems such as lack of resources, competence and
management’s commitment remain for many central government authorities.
