    Abstract

    There is an abundance of best practice literature. Yet, the phenomenon is still not fully

    understood. In this paper, we raise the question how individual and (selected) bundles of

    practices affect operational performance. Based on IMSS IV (2005) data, we identify

    four categories of practices: best, promising, qualifying, and supportive practices. A

    comparison of these practices with the ones identified using the IMSS III (2001) data

    shows that best practices may lose that status in the course of time to become supportive

    or qualifying practices, while previous best practices may reappear as best practices.
