Views from the Alps : regional perspectives on climate change ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 245 libraries worldwide
"Although climate change is a global problem, there is growing recognition of the need to look at its regional manifestations and management. This book takes such an approach to the Alpine region. The result of the ongoing Swiss research program Climate and Environment in the Alpine Region [Clear], it incorporates the work of an independent network of approximately fifty researchers from a variety of disciplines."--Jacket

The organization and management of nuclear power plants by John S Carroll( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The explanation of aggregate and sectoral investment behavior has been one of the less successful endeavors in empirical economics. Existing econometric models have had little success in explaining or predicting investment spending. This may be because most such models fail to account for the irreversibility of most investment spending. With irreversibility, changes in the riskiness of future cash flows or interest rates should in theory dramatically affect the decision to invest - more so than, say, a change in the levels of interest rates. Here I survey some of the empirical support for this proposition, and discuss the implications for investment modelling. Nuclear power plants are a controversial technology. The future of the industry depends on the ability to manage efficiently and safely, and to effectively manage organizational change as new technologies and practices are introduced and disseminated. This paper provides a conceptual framework and discussion of the management and organization of nuclear power plants around three questions: (1) How should nuclear power plants be organized and managed to ensure that they are operated most safely and efficiently? (2) What does an understanding of the organization and management of nuclear power plants tell us about how they change or resist change? and (3) What indicators or measures of various characteristics and processes of nuclear power plants are needed in order to address the above questions? We review existing literature on the organization and management of nuclear power plants, and suggest how we would structure a research project to address the above questions

Location within the field and the institutional construction of managers' cognition by Peter Cebon( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
We demonstrate that differential location in an institutional field leads to a differential impact of institutional pressures on the cognition of actors. We measure the adoption of a set of management techniques called "Manufacturing Best Practices". Our indicators of differential location in the field are whether respondents are public or private, large or small, subsidiaries or independent firms, and technologically sophisticated or unsophisticated. We argue that the first of each pair is more embedded in institutional discourse, as a consequence of differential location in the field, and therefore more likely to acquire institutionalized cognitions. Our indicator of cognition is the extent to which the configuration of practices adopted corresponds to the normatively preferred configuration. We find that firms which are more tightly linked to the field are more likely adopt the practices which are central to the category (in the sense of Rosch or Barsalou's work on category structure) and less likely to adopt the practices which are peripheral
Theorization, adaptive emulation, and similarity in forms of manufacturing best practice programs by E. Geoffrey Love( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
We examine how similarity in organizational implementations or "forms" of Manufacturing Best Practice (MBP) Programs is associated with two factors: 1) direct interorganizational relationships with theorizing agents - specifically consultants, academics, and industry associations and 2) benchmarking, which we conceptualize as an example of adaptive emulation. Theorization and adaptive emulation have been prominent in recent theorizing regarding diffusion, fads and similarity, yet their impact on organizational populations is not well understood. We compare these factors with the association between similarity and interorganizational relationships with similar organizations (customers, suppliers and competitors) which have been more commonly studied and associated with institutional pressures towards similarity and isomorphism. We also empirically examine manager's perceptions of the frequency of use and importance of the several types of interorganizational relationships we study. We find that both direct interorganizational relationships with theorizing agents and benchmarking are related positively to the similarity of a focal organization's MBP program with other organizations MBP programs. In contrast, we find no such relationship for interorganizational relationships with similar organizations. We also find that interorganizational elationships with theorizing agents are perceived to be more important by late adopters than by early adopters of MBP programs. The results around similarity are to a somewhat at odds with most neo-institutional accounts of how institutional processes lead organizations to be more similar. We discuss implications for neo-institutional theory
