Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to map the small and medium sized industrial companies in Västernorrland and their work with digitalization. This was performed with the help of an analysis where data from the companies book keeping were retrieved from a database together with a survey that was sent to the companies. The analysis showed how the industry in Västernorrland looks like considering the development of number of companies, number of employees, revenue and more. The questions of the survey were chosen to fit with indicators from the governmental strategy for the industrial transformation. The results of the survey showed that the most of the respondents work with digitalization to some extent. Production and marketing are the main areas where the companies see the biggest possibilities with digitalization. There are very few women in the industrial companies in Västernorrland, both in general and in leading positions. This is contrary to the fact that women in general have a higher education than men, something that is becoming increasingly important with the expansion of digitalization. Support initiatives in the form of a better cooperation between schools and the industry could solve the supply of competence to the companies. The analysis shows that, except for how the industry presently looks, that it is difficult to draw any conclusions about how the companies work with digitalization. There are tendencies that high-tech companies more often themselves write about their work with digitalization on their websites which can be connected to that these companies work more actively with digitalization compared to low-tech companies.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att kartlägga små och medelstora industriföretag i Västernorrland och deras arbete med digitalisering. Detta genomfördes med hjälp av en analys där data från företagens bokföring togs fram via en databas tillsammans med en enkät som skickades ut till företagen. Analysen visade på hur industrin ser ut i Västernorrland gällande utvecklingen i antal företag, antal anställda, omsättning med mera. Frågorna i enkäten valdes ut för att passa ihop med indikatorer ur regeringens nyindustrialiseringsstrategi. Resultaten visar att de flesta svarande arbetar med digitalisering i någon omfattning. Inom produktion och marknadsföring ser företagen störst möjlighet med digitalisering. Det är mycket få kvinnor inom Västernorrlands industriföretag, både överlag i företagen men också i ledande befattningar. Detta går tvärt emot det faktum att kvinnor överlag har en högre utbildningsnivå än män, något som blir allt mer viktigt i och med digitaliseringens utbredning. Stödinsatser i form av ett bättre samarbete mellan näringsliv och skolor skulle kunna lösa företagens kompetensförsörjning. Analysen visar, förutom hur industrin ser ut i nuläget, att det är svårt att dra några slutsatser om hur företagen arbetar med digitalisering. Det finns tendenser på att högteknologiska företag själva skriver om digitalisering på deras hemsidor vilket kan kopplas samman med att dessa företag arbetar mer aktivt med digitalisering än lågteknologiska företag.
