Abstract [en]

Strategic directives play an important role in directing and communicating the purpose of both private and public Swedish companies. The directives usually state purpose of ownership, the role of the company and required returns.  In particular, present directives in municipal housing are assumed to have been affected by a new act, the Public Municipal Housing Companies Act, passed by the Swedish Parliament in June 2010 and put into force in January 2011. Thus, Public Municipal Housing Companies (PMHCs) have operated at least two full years under the new Act. The Act, states among other things, that PMHCs should run their operation on “businesslike principles”- commensurate with New Public Management (NPM).  In this study we discuss some changes in owner directives over a decade for Public Municipal Housing Companies (PMHC) in Sweden.  Preliminary results suggest that a subtle change in directives has occurred and adaptation to the new Act has taken place at this relatively early date.
