On Action Theory Change

I. J. Varzinczak
2010 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
Its contribution is threefold: first we revisit the semantics of action theory contraction proposed in previous work, giving more robust operators that express minimal change based on a notion of distance  ...  Moreover, we also address the revision counterpart of action theory change, showing that it benefits from our semantics for contraction.  ...  Special thanks to my colleagues at the Meraka Institute Arina Britz, Ken Halland, Johannes Heidema and Tommie Meyer for their invaluable comments and suggestions on earlier versions of this article.  ...

Simulating behaviour change interventions based on the theory of planned behaviour: Impacts on intention and action

Chris Fife-Schaw, Paschal Sheeran, Paul Norman
2007 British Journal of Social Psychology  
However, a critical test of the TPB is whether interventions that increased scores on the theory's predictors would engender behaviour change.  ...  The theory of planned behaviour (TPB, Ajzen, 1991) has been used extensively to predict social and health behaviours.  ...  Thus, although the TPB provides a useful basis for interventions to promote behaviour change, it is also clear that changing intentions and PBC does not guarantee action -there remains a substantial -gap  ...

A procedural theory of therapeutic action: Commentary on the symposium,Interventions that effect change in psychotherapy

Beatrice Beebe
1998 Infant Mental Health Journal  
Nonlinear dynamic systems theory has greatly influenced their theory of change. The centerpiece is Louis Sander's concept of the "moment of meeting."  ...  We must now integrate the work of this group with other current procedural theories of therapeutic action.  ...  In focusing on the therapeutic action of an increased sense of agency, Nahum is operating with one central aspect of Sander's theory. On the other hand, he downplays the "hot moment."  ...

A "theory of action" perspective on effective organizational change

R.A. Luechtefeld
Proceedings. 2005 IEEE International Engineering Management Conference, 2005.  
A "Theory of Action" perspective, developed by Chris Argyris and Donald Schön, assumes that managers craft their actions to achieve intended results.  ...  Effective organizational change is crucial to the implementation of popular management approaches such as Quality Management, Six-Sigma, and Business Excellence.  ...  CONCLUSIONS The Theory of Action perspective on organizational change provides a viewpoint that can help organizations plan change and implement it effectively.  ...

The parameter dependence of the topology change and the scaling properties of the topology conserving gauge action

Tetsuya Onogi, Hidenori Fukaya, Shoji Hashimoto, Takuya Hirohashi, Kenji Ogawa
2005 Proceedings of XXIIIrd International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory — PoS(LAT2005)   unpublished
We find that the the topology change is indeed suppressed when the parameter ε is of order one.  ...  The topology conserving gauge action proposed by Lüscher is expected to reduce the number of non-smooth gauge configurations as well as the topology change compared to the conventional actions for the  ...  We find that the renormalized coupling for various values of 1/ε shows a good agreement, which means that the change of 1/ε is well described by the perturbation theory. g 2 M (1/a) = 1 g 2 0 + A 1 + A  ...

Who has the authority to change a theory? Everyone! A commentary on Head and Noar

Gerjo Kok, Robert A.C. Ruiter
2013 Health Psychology Review  
That might be the case, but it is clear that RAA is not an action theory as it focuses completely on the identification of beliefs that need to be reinforced, changed or added (Witte, 1995) , to change  ...  We need other action theories to identify effective behavioural change methods and develop change interventions. Head and Noar suggest that Fishbein and Ajzen present RAA also as a change theory.  ...  That might be the case, but it is clear that RAA is not an action theory as it focuses completely on the identification of beliefs that need to be reinforced, changed or added (Witte, 1995) , to change  ...
