  1. 1. Time to change : zipping sustainability into operations

    Detta är en avhandling från Västerås : Mälardalen University Press

    Författare :Anna Sannö; Mälardalens högskola.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainable operations; environment; technological change; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Sammanfattning : Industry is a key player in the transition to a sustainable society, where manufacturing companies need to respond to the challenges of environmental concerns in several ways. The need for managing environmental technological change in production systems is and will continue to be a challenge for manufacturing companies, as they often tend to focus on short-term priorities to stay economically competitive, rather than developing the organisation to manage longer-term environmental competitiveness.

  2. 2. Continuity and Change : Essays on path-dependence in economic geography and good food

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Pepijn Olders; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; path dependence; continuity; change; expert opinion; economic geography; restaurants; low-emission vehicles; PDO PGI labels;

    Sammanfattning : How can it be, that in our rapidly changing world certain things remain recognisably the same for such a long time? This dissertation is concerned with the economic geography of path-dependence and seeks to explain selected everyday examples of continuity and change. How can French restaurants and chefs be successful for decades despite changes in taste? Why are cars powered by fossil fuels still around while there are many novel and cleaner alternatives? What explains the re-invention of local food products in spite of the influx of many new products from around the world? These are the question this dissertation tries to explain as spatial expressions of ‘path-dependence’. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Technological Discontinuities and Industrial Dynamics

    Detta är en avhandling från Chalmers University of Technology

    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Industrial engineering and economy; technological discontinuity; radical innovation; machine tools; diffusion; technological system; patents; bibliometrics; technological forecasting;

    Sammanfattning : A technological discontinuity is a substantial change in the set of technological competences required to design and produce a product, often resulting in a significant change in the price/performance ratio of a product. Established firms often face severe difficulties in adjusting to a discontinuity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Technological Change in an International Industrial System

    Detta är en avhandling från Ekonomihögskolan

    Författare :Leif Linnskog; Mälardalens högskola.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; technology; technological change; industrial networks; business relationships; strategic intention; power; negotiations; social capital; coalitions; structural inertness; TECHNOLOGY Industrial engineering and economy Industrial organisation; administration and economics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Industriell teknik och ekonomi Industriell organisation; administration och ekonomi; Industriell ekonomi och organisation;

    Sammanfattning : Industrial systems resist change, more often, because heavy production facilities and industrial constructions are expensive and have long economic lives, but also because people tend to defend ingrained conceptions of how things are and how activities ought to be performed. Starting out from the question: “How does technological change come about in an international, industrial system?” the thesis investigates the interplay between technological, social, and economic factors.
