Senguen, Ayse Elif
Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı
This study investigates the interaction among trust, control, and risk by empirically testing Das and Teng's conceptual framework in a long-term supply agreement following a qualitative study of context. Results suggest that only three model propositions were not supported. Goodwill trust was not related to relational risks, whereas output control and social control were positively related to relational risks and performance risks, respectively. The relationship between trust and social control is complementary, whereas that for trust and output control is substitutive. Goodwill trust is positively related to performance risk taking. Also, output control undermines goodwill and competence trust, whereas social control enhances both types of trust. Goodwill trust and competence trust are positively related to social control. Although goodwill trust decreases the need for output control, competence trust does not. The results suggest that Das and Teng's original model is substantially applicable to the given context.


Performance outcomes of interorganizational trust in buyer-seller relationships: the case of the relationship between a pharmacy and a drug wholesaler
Şengün, Ayşe Elif; Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı; Department of Business Administration (2005)
This study examines the performance outcomes of interorganizational trust using both qualitative and quantitative methods. Using qualitative data from four informants and drawing on the literature on trust, we define interorganizational trust and derive a model of its outcomes. Regression analysis results indicate that trust is negatively related to transaction costs and positively related to cooperation, conflict resolution, satisfaction, and risk taking tendency. Dependence has a moderating effect on trus...
Trust types, distrust, and performance outcomes in small business relationships: the pharmacy-drug warehouse case
Sengun, Ayse Elif; Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı (Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
This study attempts to investigate the linkage among trust types, distrust, and relationship performance outcomes in the context of long-term supply agreement-type alliances between small business dyads. The results suggest a significant positive relationship among goodwill trust and risk-taking tendency, cooperation, satisfaction, and conflict resolution and a negative relationship between goodwill trust and transaction costs. Competence trust is found to have a positive relationship with cooperation, conf...
A relational perspective of institutional work
Topal, Çağrı (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2015-07-01)
This study develops a relational model of institutional work. The past research implies that the nature of relationships between individual actors actually shapes the nature of institutional work the actors engage in. However, the research falls short of an explicit, systematic analysis of different relationships between the actors and their work implications. This study basically argues that the actors' power positions, which might be dominant or subordinate in relation to those of other actors, and their ...

Kara, Mehmet; Yıldırım, Zahide (Wiley, 2020-07-01)
The second part of this comprehensive systemic study aims to identify the required interventions to overcome the causes of faculty-performance deficiencies that were determined in the first part. The externality-tangibility (E-T) model of human performance guided the study to identify the needed interventions for faculty-performance improvement. Grounded-theory research design was used to develop the intervention model for faculty-performance improvement. The participants of the study consisted of all stake...

Ruganci, R. Neslihan; Gençöz, Tülin (Wiley, 2010-04-01)
This study aimed to examine the psychometric properties of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS; developed by Gratz & Roemer, 2004) in a Turkish sample. For this purpose, first, the factor structure of the scale was examined with a sample of 338 university students, and an identical factor structure with the original scale was obtained with the exclusion of a single item. Following the confirmation of the 6-factor structure of the scale with the current Turkish sample, the whole scale's and it...
