A Master Thesis about the possible effects of teamwork and self-managing teams. This case study involves two self-managing teams of laboratory technicians, who undertake animal testing for a large international medical company - Novo Nordisk PLC. The thesis uses the theory of social capital to examine how self-management influence the teams’ collaboration and fellowship, and thereby the psychological working environment of the teams. The thesis furthermore examines the paradox consisting of self-management on one side and the managements control over employees on the other. As management control possibly entails an increasing standardisation of ex. working procedures, it may conflict with the autonomy of self-managing teams. Control and supervision by the management can therefore be an obstacle for the team members’ influence and co-management and in that way, the team member’s collaboration, fellowship and when all comes to all, the teams’ psychological working environment.
