    The size of a logistics performance measurement system2011In: Facilities, ISSN 0263-2772, E-ISSN 1758-7131, Vol. 29, no 3/4, p. 133-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – One practical challenge in managing logistics performance concerns the size, or thenumber of actors involved, in a performance measurement (PM) system. The first objective of thispaper is to describe and compare the advantages and disadvantages of four logistics performancemeasurement system sizes. The second objective is to develop a model of the factors affecting logisticsPM system size.

    Design/methodology/approach – This is a conceptual paper based on a literature review.

    Findings – Internal PM systems were related to advantages connected with convenience and theavoidance of implementation problems. Disadvantages of an applied system were severe, especially ina supply chain context. Supply chain PM systems contained attractive advantages that can be reachedwith an applied system. However, a number of disadvantages in the shape of implementationproblems must be handled. A model of the factors affecting the decision on logistics PM system sizeswas developed. Power, purpose and implementation were found to be important factors. Fivepropositions were formulated.

    Research limitations/implications – The contribution of this paper is mainly theoretical; theresults remain unverified until empirical studies are conducted.Practical implications – The paper can be seen as a first step towards new knowledge on howlogistics PM system size is decided.

    Originality/value – As little research exists in the area, this paper highlights the theoretical aspectsof a practical challenge

    Physical space, culture and organisational creativity: a longitudinal study2015In: Facilities, ISSN 0263-2772, E-ISSN 1758-7131, Vol. 33, no 5-6, p. 389-411Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this study is to explore the potential positive effects of the design of a physical organisational environment on the emergence of an organisational culture conducive to organisational creativity. Design/methodology/approach - The study is based on an in-depth, longitudinal case study, the aim being to enhance understanding of how a change in physical space, including location, spatial organisation and architectonic details, supports cultural change. Findings - It is suggested that physical space plays an implicit yet significant role in the emergence of a culture conducive to organisational creativity. It appears from the case analysis that there are three aspects of culture in particular, equality, openness and collectivity, that may be positively affected by the design of an organisation’s physical environment. Practical implications - The careful choice, planning and design of an organisation’s physical location, layout and style can advance the appearance of an organisational culture conducive to creativity. Originality/value - The paper describes a longitudinal study comparing a case organisation before and after a change in its physical environment. The longitudinal data illustrates how a change in the spatial environment contributes to the emergence of a culture conducive to organisational creativity.
