A Perceptual Measure of Innovation Performance: Micro Level Evidence from Turkey

Fındık, Derya
Beyhan, Berna
This paper aims to introduce a qualitative indicator to measure innovation performance of Turkish firms by using firm level data collected by Turkish Statistical Institute (TURKSTAT) in 2008 and 2009. We propose a new indicator to measure the innovation performance which is simply based on the perception of firms regarding to the impacts of innovation. In order to create performance indicators we conduct a factor analysis to group the firms’ perceptions on the impacts of innovation. Factor analysis gives us product and process oriented impacts of innovation. There are significant differences among product innovators, process innovators and firms engaged in both product and process innovations with respect to their perceptions on product and process oriented impacts of innovation. Among these three groups, product and process oriented impacts provide a highest value for the firms that perform both product and process innovations. As far as the link between firm characteristics and the impact of innovation is considered, there is a significant difference between small and large firms with respect to their perceptions on product oriented impact of innovation.While product oriented impact are larger for small firms, large firms focus more on process oriented impact. Anova results also indicate that perceptions on process oriented impact significantly differ among exporter firms, domestic market oriented firms and firms being active in internal and external markets. Process oriented impact generate results in favor of exporting firms.


A Critical analysis of social dimension in sustainable development: a case study of Tepekışla dam and hepp in Tokat, Niksar
Köse, Pınar; Kalaycıoğlu, Hediye Sibel; Department of Social Policy (2012)
This study aims to make a critical analysis of the social dimension of sustainable development as implemented within the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process. Social dimension can be assessed on the basis of six social indicators, which are social accountability, local self-reliance, basic human needs, degree of participation, equity, and appropriate technology. In this context, a field study is conducted in four villages which will be affected by the Tepekışla Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant (Pr...
A regional scale quantitative risk assessment for landslides: case of Kumluca watershed in Bartin, Turkey
ERENER, ARZU; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (2013-02-01)
The paper proposes a methodology for quantitative landslide risk assessment for regional-scale analysis. Each component of risk, i.e., hazard, vulnerability, and consequence analysis, is quantitatively assessed. The developed landslide risk assessment methodology is tested in Kumluca watershed, in BartA +/- n, Turkey. Geographic information systems and remote sensing techniques are used to create landslide factor maps, to obtain susceptibility maps, hazard maps, elements at risk, and risk maps. Susceptibili...
A computer-supported methodology for requirements modelling in CIM for small and medium size enterprises: A demonstration in Apparel Industry
Hashemipour, M; Anlagan, O; Kayaligil, S (1997-01-01)
This paper discusses the first phase of a computer-assisted methodology for implementing CIM within small and medium enterprises. Some of the existing methodologies and tools were furnished by extra items to ease the process for small and medium size manufacturing companies. The methodology aims at using limited expertise, limited staff, and minimising cost. The existing analysis tools (i.e. DFDs, ELH, and tools in the GRAI methodology) were modified and a new tool was developed (PIFR) to shed light on the ...
A Dea based sorting approach for industrial R&D projects
Aker, Pınar; Karasakal, Esra; Department of Industrial Engineering (2010)
In this study, multicriteria sorting methods based on Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) are developed to evaluate industrial Research and Development (R&D) projects proposed to Technology and Innovation Grant Programmes Directorate (TEYDEB) of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK). Even though DEA is used extensively as a multicriteria decision making (MCDM) tool for ranking; to our knowledge, this study is the first attempt utilizing DEA for sorting purpose. A five level R&D p...
A Hybrid Approach for Process Mining Using From to Chart Arranged by Genetic Algorithms LNCS San Sebastian Spain June 2010
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2010-06-18)
In the scope of this study, a hybrid data analysis methodology to business process modeling is proposed in such a way that; From-to Chart, which is basically used as the front-end to figure out the observed patterns among the activities at realistic event logs, is rearranged by Genetic Algorithms to convert these derived raw relations into activity sequence. According to experimental results, acceptably good (sub-optimal or optimal) solutions are obtained for relatively complex business processes at a reaso...
