samhandling structures under risk. The findings are based on a case study of the
concept of “Total Football” and the Rosenborg Football Club (RBK) in Norway.
Football is a dynamic sport with several factors that come into play and where
flexible solutions are demanded. The case is also of relevance for organizations in
handling risk. RBK’s samhandling is based on “Total Football” and flow theory. In
analyzing RBK, we also apply theories of improvisation. RBK created a platform
that gave both direction to choices and a clear playing pattern. This platform further
ensured that tasks could be executed at high speed and high intensity, described as
“flow”. Flow contributed to both speed and precision in the playing pattern. It is
concluded that the following is relevant for other organizations: 1) Forming a deeper
understanding of samhandling and ensuring top management commitment; 2)
Creating, establishing and maintaining samhandling in a manner that suits the organization;
and 3) Minimal structures can be of great importance for organizations
in unforeseen and risky situations."
