Development & Adaptation of Promising Practices

    Description

    The project is sponsored by AIM (Advanced Institute of Management, UK). It is lead by Professor Chris Voss, London Business School. The broad set of research questions developed in collaboration with the AIM team are: What is a promising practice?, how do practices emerge?, how are practices adopted? what is success?, what practices can/should lead to success?, what is transferable? how can transferable practices be captured? by what means are practices transferred, how do managers receive them?, how do managers adapt them?, how do managers implement them? These questions can be viewed in two contexts - emergent practices and established practices. There are two phases of this project: (1) Developing a broad theoretical empirical and practical framework for the development, adaptation and impact of promising practices in both service and manufacturing. (2) Conducting field and historical research into the development, adoption and adaptation of practices in the area of Lean Production and Experience economy. The nature of the data used will be descriptive and observational. It is likely to be case based as well as cross-sectional. Case studies are done 2005 and 2006 and publications are to come in 2006 and 2007 Niels Gorm Rytter has been appointed as an AIM Research fellow. (Niels Gorm Rytter, Department of Production, AAU)
