This study investigates, how the management of a jobcentre responds strategic to institutional pressures in the competition reform. I have chosen only to analyze three New Public Management inspired management thools in the competition reform: Benchmarking, target management and performance based pay. The possible strategic responds to the management tools are according to Christine Oliver acquiesce, compromise, avoid, defy and manipulate. The management responds positively to the use of benchmarking, but only one of the managers uses benchmarking in the job centre. The management is active in the use of target management, but two of the managers use the manipulate- and compromise strategic. Only one of the managers has implemented performance based pay in his department. The two other managers do not believe that performance based payment will increase the efficiency in the job centre and as a result they do not use it.
