KORA is organised into four cross-disciplinary departments, each with its own focus:
Economy and benchmarking
We provide an overview of municipal and regional task solutions in the various sectors. We focus on their resource use and financial management, and on the cross-disciplinary prioritisation among service areas. The focus is on the overall trends and especially variation between the organizational units. A key task is to identify units displaying effective solutions that can inspire other units.
Governance, organisation and management
We produce knowledge on governance, organisation and management models in municipalities and regions, including the effects these models have on quality, performance and expenditure levels, as well on employee motivation and performance. We carry out analyses of management and coordination, goal and performance management, rule and process management, quality assurance systems, rule simplification and debureaucratization, incentives and public-private cooperation.
Evaluation and innovation
We generate knowledge on how quality, better resource use and efficiency can be achieved, and on how good solutions can be spread and anchored. We have strong assessment skills and a broad portfolio of evaluations and analyses. We also look towards new solutions, including new organizational forms, technologies, co-design, organizational innovation and user involvement.
Quality and efficiency
We create knowledge on which interventions in municipalities and regions are effective and for whom. We also look at relations between quality and resource consumption, and thus also the development in productivity. Quality is measured by the final results for the population and also by more subjective goals, such as perceived quality, preferences, etc.
