Leif Lindfors, University of Stockholm
Leif brought to the seminar some thoughts on "the training of amateurs". He outlined the situation of the University of Stockholm, with about 80 departments, some of them having around 200 staff but others with only a few.
Leif felt that the training offered had been successful, although the fixed-term nature of the head-of-department job meant that there was a high turn-over rate, with a consequent need to have new people on the course at regular intervals.
In further discussion, Leif acknowledged that it was sometimes hard to persuade departments to co-operate, particularly if either of them feared that a take-over by another was likely. Indeed, he had found that it was often easier to get disparate disciplines to collaborate in organisational change!
With regard to attendance at the course, Leif noted that heads of department were formally obliged to take part, but that there was no penalty for anyone who refused - heads were "asked" to take part. Although in theory it would be possible to pay people more in recognition of particular skills, in practice this was not done. He saw a problem in that senior academics lost touch with their research specialisms while engaged in administrative matters, and wondered how other colleagues dealt with this.
