  • The networked handling of rush orders in customer services 

    Engelseth, Per; White, Brian E. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Rush orders are characterised by time constraints and organisational priority. They are handled by the supplier with the aim of meeting customer requirements in as limited a timeframe as possible. Rather than focusing on rush orders as a deterministic planning problem, this paper takes an inter-organisational perspective that highlights the complex networked interactions between the supplier and the ...

  • Re-thinking sustainability and food in tourism 

    Bertella, Giovanna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-22)
    Now is a good time to reflect on the way food tourism could contribute to a better future. A number of scholars comment on the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to re-think tourism in terms of sustainability, social and ecological justice (e.g. Gössling, Scott, & Hall, 2020; Higgins-Desbiolles, 2020). Most considerations tend to focus on recovery strategies, challenges of over-tourism and highcarbon ...

  • Constructing managerial manoeuvring space in contradictory contexts 

    Filstad, Cathrine; Olsen, Trude Høgvold; Karp, Tom (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-17)
    This paper discusses manoeuvring space and demonstrates how autonomy, power and discretion need to be understood as constructed and integrated behaviours where managers manoeuvre between dilemmas in their own management practices. Twenty-seven Norwegian police managers were shadowed and interviewed. We found that constructions of manoeuvring space presupposed that managers balanced dilemmas. We ...
  • On rational forward-looking behavior in economic geography: An experimental analysis 

    Barreda-Tarrazona, Iván; Kundu, Tapas; Østbye, Stein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-05)
    This paper adapts the canonical New Economic Geography model for experimental testing of the model's behavioral assumptions by developing a finite-player, finite-horizon dynamic game of migration. Our analysis gives distinctive predictions when migration is consistent with myopic behavior (MB) and when it is consistent with sequentially rational or perfect forward-looking behavior (FB). These ...
  • Employing a value-belief-norm framework to gauge Carthage residents’ intentions to support sustainable cultural heritage tourism 

    Megeirhi, Huda A.; Woosnam, Kyle Maurice; Ribeiro, Manuel Alector; Ramkissoon, Haywantee; Denley, Tara J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-16)
