2021 International Journal of Learning and Change  
Based on dynamic capabilities theoretical framework, this research sought to understand the implications of the recent economic crisis on the capability of developing new products by Portuguese SMEs. Specifically, we assessed how this capability was affected by variables such as entrepreneurship, innovation capacity, the knowledge accumulation, and partnerships. The hypotheses were tested using two samples, one before the crisis, with 180 and another with 105 respondents, applied during the

In particular, was found that during the crisis the entrepreneurship, innovation capacity, accumulation of knowledge and partnerships, have an impact on the capability of developing new products. Before the crisis, only entrepreneurship and knowledge accumulation have affected this capability.

Development of a Tourist Route around the Mining Heritage of the Estremoz Anticline

Luís Lopes, Ruben Martins, Patrícia Falé, João Passos, Francisco Bilou, Manuel Branco, Manuel Francisco Pereira
2013 Key Engineering Materials  
The areas of the counties of Estremoz, Borba and Vila Viçosa, traditionally and since ancient times, have been a major region for extraction of marbles for use as a dimension stone in Portugal. The geological evolution of the Iberian Peninsula allowed the formation, in Alto Alentejo, of one of the World's most important and famous marble deposits. The Estremoz Anticline, about 42 km long and 8 km in maximum width, is an impressive place where the strength and ingenuity of Man has been used for

The 27 km2 where the marble is concentrated is a place with a high density of quarries that have an unavoidable environmental impact, leaving stone exposed or accumulated in large tips, side-by-side with the Alentejo plains of wheat fields and olive trees. It is impossible to fully rehabilitate this area either for economic or strategic reasons, but it can be considered as resource for the promotion and development of industrial and scientific tourism and artistic and cultural events. A survey of the assets of the region has been undertaken and a wide variety of organizations and the industry are collaborating in planning a route and activities for the region.

Foucault's Perspective of Performance Appraisal in Public Administration

Amélia Ferreira-da-Silva, José Manuel Pereira, Alice Lopes, Carla Magalhães, Ricardo Moreira
2015 Mediterranean Journal of Social Sciences  
The main purpose of performance appraisal in organizations is, or should be, to improve the engagement, learning process and progress of the employees and to align individual with team and organizational performance. However, performance appraisal can also be interpreted as an instrument of normalization, discipline and surveillance. This study thus aims to explore and discuss the complex schema of intrinsic and extrinsic objectives of performance appraisal system of the Portuguese public

The data were analyzed in light of foucauldian theories. According to the qualitative data, namely the discourses of the appraisers and their subordinates, the SIADAP is seen as an instrument of control and dominance that aims to introduce political rationalities, limiting the career progression of the employees. Though some key points of Foucault's perspective were identified, foucauldian framework revealed some limitations to capture all the complexity inherent to performance appraisal. This study opens new perspectives about the SIADAP and can be of major importance as far as political reflection about performance appraisal in public organizations is concerned. 376 main objectives of NPM frame reforms are essentially economic, which implies some kind of "subordination" of organizational mission to those limits of economic efficiency. In this circumstance, public organizations are pressured to increase their performance. Consequently, the performance management systems gained a crucial role in public management (Hood, 1995; Brignall and Modell, 2000) . Under the NPM reform agenda, in 2004, an integrated performance evaluation system has been announced in Portuguese public sector -SIADAP. Indeed, in Portugal, NPM has led to the emergence of some new patterns concerning performance appraisal. Moreover, the recent creation of limits for the higher level of performance appraisal has stimulated competition among civil servants. Once the evaluation can produce some effects in terms of career progression and salary advantages, this completion has become a potential source of conflict between employees (colleagues) and between appraisers and appraisees. The SIADAP is regarded as one of the main changes introduced by the Public Administration Reform at the beginning of the new century. The Law no. 66-B/2007, in its Article 1, states that the PAS "... aims to contribute to the improvement of the performance and quality of service in public administration, to the coherence and harmony of action of services officers and other employees and to promote their motivation and professional skills development." However, and in spite of these clearly stated intentions, we believe the PAS can be framed within a discipline and surveillance system that makes the employee a "knowable, calculable and administrative object" (Miller & Rose, 1990, p. 5). Michel Foucault uses the metaphor of the Panopticon to illustrate the relationship between systems of social control and people in a disciplinary situation. From his perspective, institutions such as prisons, hospitals, schools, among others, are machines of social control that influence the behavior of individuals, domesticating and normalizing them. For that purpose, organizations create anonymous observation systems that produce knowledge and, consequently, empower the observer. Indeed, "...behind the facade of efficiency, equity, or humanity, which surrounds formal organizations of all kinds lie distinct concentrations of power and knowledge." (McKinlay & Starkey, 1998, p. 2) Foucault questions common concepts such as justice or equality, analyzing the origin of these concepts as well as the people they benefit. His concept of power as something abstract, whose origin may be found anywhere, can help us understand the complex schema of intrinsic and extrinsic objectives of SIADAP and its influence in the employees' behavior and in their work relations. Theoretical framework and research questions In a context of growing uncertainty, the ability of institutions to adapt themselves to new strategic challenges and control their human resources has become very important. The PAS allows organizations to exercise their power of assessment (and not only this kind of power) on their employees. Van Dooren, Bouckaert and Halligan (2010) define the PAS as a systematic collection of data that involves the observation and registration of the employees' performance. However, this system has been widely criticized, not only due to the excessive attention given to the valuation of instruments, but also because of the indifference towards the diversity of organizational frameworks, individual motivations and abilities, and the relationship between the evaluator and the evaluated (Murphy & Cleveland, 1991). McDavid, Huse and Hawthorn (2013) sustain that the knowledge of a level of performance does not always imply the knowledge of the other levels of performance. Furthermore, the PAS is usually considered to be more focused on the consequences, ignoring the causes and the process. The opinions about the PAS have diverged, as far as its weight on results and productivity is concerned. This issue is even more relevant within the context of public administration and the debate on methods of evaluation and control of civil servants has therefore become very important. Several authors have been focusing on the study of particular features concerning performance appraisal in the context of human resources strategic management in
