2001 IEEE transactions on engineering management  
This paper focuses on the product design process and the role played by environmental concerns during this critical stage.  ...  An interesting finding reported in this paper involves the existence of a strong gap between the ERM supporters and the users of ERM tools.  ...  In this stage of theory building, a key objective is to develop insights into the key processes involved in integrating environmental issues into the design process.  ...

Manufacturing flexibility and performance: bridging the gap between theory and practice

Suzanne de Treville, Samuel Bendahan, Annelies Vanderhaeghe
2007 International journal of flexible manufacturing systems  
We argue that the use of an iterative process that involves cases and theory both stimulates creativity in integrating theory and lays an initial foundation for evidence-based practice.  ...  We extend Daft and Weick's (Acad Manage Rev 9(2):284-295, 1984) model of firms as interpretation systems into a theoretical model of flexibility performance through extended iterations between observations  ...  Grounding our theory integration with the case study made it more likely that our work would contribute to bridging the gap between theory and practice, and it also should encourage evidence-based practice  ...

The Gap Between Theory and Practice of Stakeholder Participation: The Case of Management of The Korle Lagoon, Ghana - Comment

Frederick Ato Armah, David Oscar Yawson & Alkan Olsson Johanna
2009 Law, Environment and Development Journal  
In theory, participation holds promise to address conflict, however in practice, a number of factors that feed into conflict characterise the process of participation in this case, such as ineffective  ...  Using direct observations and survey of stakeholder groups, the paper examines the structure and process of participation of stakeholders in Korle lagoon resource use and water policy formulation and implementation  ...  This would suggest a gap between theory and practice of stakeholder participation, one that calls for re-examination of the participatory process in this case. 54 See Rahnema, note 20 above.  ...
