Omvärldsanalys i statliga myndigheter. Framväxt, organisation och arbetsmetoder

Samuel Bohman ()

Abstract:

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.
