Using System Dynamics for Strategic Performance Management in Construction
Yildiz, Acelya Ecem; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2020-03-01)
Balanced scorecard (BSC) and strategy maps (SMs) are among the most popular strategic performance management methods that have been proposed in the literature to define, analyze, and monitor performance and strategies. Despite their popularity, BSC and SMs have been criticized for their inability to simulate dynamic interrelations between performance measures and strategies over time. In this paper, a dynamic SM was developed by using system dynamics (SD) modeling based on the BSC framework. This paper desc...
Coexistence of continuity and change in institutional work
Topal, Çağrı (Emerald, 2020-01-01)
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to answer the question of how continuity and change coexist in the work of institutional actors who can combine maintenance, disruption and/or creation. Past studies mention this coexistence without an explanation. Design/methodology/approach The paper develops a perspective through literature review. Findings Institutional actors are both socialized into the norm-oriented space of continuity and maintenance through their reciprocal relations and associated social knowle...
Using boolean- and fuzzy-logic-based methods to analyze multiple case study evidence in management research
Oz, O (SAGE Publications, 2004-06-01)
The case study method has been widely used as a research strategy in the management field. The issues of comparability and of generalizability when using this method, however, continue to raise profound challenges for researchers. Boolean- and fuzzy-logic-based methods offer a valuable basis for a contribution in this respect because they enable researchers to derive valid meaning from data and to introduce additional analytical rigor into case study research. Inspired by this opportunity, the present artic...
Systems Thinking for Studying International Professional Program Participants' Thoughts
Karaman, Abdullah Cendel (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-06-01)
Studying the experiences of participants in international professional programs requires conceptual frameworks that take into account the complex systemic nature of the intercultural journeys. This article explores the thoughts of a prospective teacher related to a field experience abroad. The purpose is to understand the narratives of experience and demonstrate how systems thinking facilitated a deep study of this case. The focal case is that of a prospective teacher from the US who participates in a profe...
Localisation and the design and production of sustainable products
Doğan, Çağla (Inderscience Publishers, 2008-10-03)
This paper presents an innovative approach to design research that integrates design-based research in its methodology and which explores ways of integrating 'the local' within product design and production in order to more effectively address sustainable principles within our conceptual frameworks of 'material culture' – its design, production and post-use processing. The concept proposed here, termed integrated scales of design and production not only suggests a more environmentally responsible notion of ...
