Engaged scholarship : a guide for organizational and social research by Andrew H Van de Ven( Book )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between theory and practice, research and action, is fundamental to all fields of applied social science. Should research findings and knowledge be useful for science, practice, and policy? If so, how should such research be designed, carried out and disseminated to achieve the twin goals of rigor and relevance? These challenges are particularly relevant in the applied areas of management and organization studies where there is a distinct responsibility for researchers to engage with the 'real world'. In this carefully crafted and thoughtful book, leading management researcher Andrew Van de Ven both presents the broad intellectual challenge of 'engaged scholarship', and also sets out a clear framework and guidelines for carrying out soundly based and useful research for advancing both science and practice. At a time when some may question the value and status of academic knowledge; and others, contrastingly, urge a closer relationship between researchers and research users - be they businesses, governments or other institutions - the challenge of engaged scholarship is as relevant as ever, and there is a real need for the thoughtful and considered approach offered by Van de Ven. The book both provides a manifesto for engaged scholarship in the social sciences, and clear framework for research design and methodology. It will be an invaluable reference point and guide for academics, researchers and graduate students across the social sciences concerned with rigorous and relevant research in the contemporary world."--Publisher description

Central problems in the management of innovation by Andrew H Van de Ven( Book )

7 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innovation is defined as the development and implementation of new ideas by people who over time engage in transactions with others within an institutional order. This simple and seemingly innocuous definition has major implications for managing innovation. This definition focuses on four basic factors (new ideas, people, transactions, and institutional context). An understanding of how these factors are related lead to four basic problems confronting most general managers: 1) A human problem of managing attention, 2) A process problem in managing new ideas into good currency, 3) A structural problem of managing part-whole relationships, and 4) A strategic problem of institutional leadership. Appreciating these problems and their consequences provides a first step in developing a practical theory on the management of innovation. Originator supplied keywords include: Management of innovation; Innovation problems or barriers; Attention, part-whole relations; Ideas in good currency; Institutional leadership

Community-planned programs for children : do they work? : A report on implementation of demonstration projects of the Texas Department of Community Affairs, Early Childhood Development Division by Jennie S Liston( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes and evaluates 14 early childhood development (ecd) demonstration projects which were funded by the Texas Department of Community Affairs/Early Childhood Development Division but planned and implemental in primarily rural areas, by local Texas communities. The first section of the report lists the major research questions on program outcomes and processes which guided the evaluation. In Section ii, the background of the demonstration projects is described and the methodology of the evaluation is discussed. Section iii presents the program outcome findings to date, and Section iv reports the evaluation data collected and analyzed thus far to provide preliminary answers to the process questions. The fifth section summarizes the overall findings to date and offers recommendations based on these findings. The report concludes that local communities, with assistance from the state, can provide high quality child care and health services for children and their parents, with benefits that far exceed the costs. Appendices contain a list of technical reports and publications related to the demonstration projects, a journal reprint on a process model for program planning and evaluation, Management Information System worksheets, and a list of the ecd demonstration programs.

Dynamics of interorganizational coordination by Andrew H Van de Ven( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A theory was developed on the creation, growth, and decline of relationships among organizations and was tested, using a longitudinal study of 95 dyadic relationships among child care and health organizations in Texas. Using LISREL V, the test of the theory showed that substantial revision of the model was required to adequately explain the data. When the model was revised, important new patterns were revealed in the development of interorganizational relationships over time: (1) Perceptions of dependence on others for resources spurs the development of interorganizational relationships. Resource dependence is a powerful direct determinant of communications, resource transactions, and consensus; (2) The growth of interorganizational relationships is fostered by frequent communications to formalize the relationship and build consensus about the terms of the relationship among the parties involved; (3) Monetary transactions and client referrals entail different patterns of coordination; and (4) Consensus among parties in an interorganizational relationship is both a positive outcome of initial resource dependence and communications and has a negative influence on subsequent perceptions of resource dependence. Keywords include: Interorganizational Relations, Interorganizational Coordination
The concept of fit in contingency theory by Andrew H Van de Ven( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contingency theories dominate scholarly studies of organization behavior, design, performance, planning and management strategy. While they vary widely in subject matter, they have the common proposition that an organizational outcome is the consequency of a fit or match between two or more factors. Fit is the key concept in this proposition, and the core problem common to contingency theories is not defining this term clearly. This paper examines three ways to define and test this concept of fit: Selection, Interaction, and Systems approaches. A critical discussion of these approaches will clarify much of the current confusion in the literature on contingency theories, and suggest ways that future theorizing and research can become more systematic and constructive. Originator supplied keywords include: Contingency theory; Organization structure; Organization design; Organization performance
