Kanslibyrån has been fighting against efficiency and productivity in the public arena for more than a decade. Now the bureau has developed a set of new tools, objects intended to help in a concrete way in the fight against rationalization and measurability. With a starting point in everyday issues around jobs, family, finances, relationships, attitudes, etc., the agency seeks to provide concrete support in how destructive norms and conventions can be counteracted.
