Practicing Performance Management dialog 2

The salary revision for union members within Saco-S and for unorganized employees shall be carried out through dialogue between the manager and employees. This means that the new salary is based on an agreement between the manager and the employee.


The purpose of the course is to gain an understanding of salary setting criteria and the salary setting process at Karolinska Institutet and increase your ability to provide clear feedback in the salary discussion.

Target group

The course is for employees in a managerial/leadership role, both within the research/education and administrative organisations, who will conduct salary setting dialogues.


Interactive theatre is an enjoyable and focused work method where the participants train the kind of discussion situations that managers must face in the annual salary setting dialogue with their employees.

Course structure

The course begins with an introductory and theoretical part centred around Karolinska Institutet’s salary setting guidelines. This is followed by training with actors in small groups where the actors play the parts of employees in different salary discussion situations (cases). The observers among the participants learn by watching and experiencing the dynamics of the discussion, what works and what does not work. Watching a discussion as a performance clarifies and generates insights that would otherwise be lost. The observers are asked to formulate their experiences and put into words the chain of events that unfold during each discussion. The ‘manager’ in the exercise is asked to reflect on and put his/her experience into words. The actors give their feedback on the discussion: how they experienced it, what opened it up, what brought it to a standstill, etc.

Course leaders

The course is executed and arranged by the Human Resources Office at Karolinska Institutet in cooperation with Solvere.
Solvere is a training company that uses interactive methods oriented towards communication and interaction between people. Solvere provides customised performances/concepts in a range of themes.
