  1. The best of two worlds

    Palma, Patrícia Jardim Trindade Martins da; Cunha, Miguel Pina e; Lopes, Miguel Pereira
    Policies have been introduced in the public sector to increase efficiency. Following a privatization, there is a split between operational and strategic control. In this study, we explored how a public organization restores its identity after losing its operational structure. Based on a case study of a seaport, we found that when the self-defining properties were lost, the organizational identity dissolved into a managerial public identity. The organizational meaning that provided security and guided behavior was lost and the new identity was unable to serve as a provider of meaning. Implications for new public management policy and practice are discussed.

  2. Is more always better? An exploration of the differential effects of functional integration on performance in new product development

    Gomes, Jorge F. S.; Weerd-Nederhof, P. C. de; Pearson, A. W.; Cunha, Miguel Pina e
    The objective of this paper is to explore the relationship between performance in new product development (hereinafter NPD) and functional integration under different conditions of project uncertainty. Functional integration is conceived as a two-dimensional concept, encompassing a behavioural — collaboration — and a structural — interaction — dimension. This study is based on 92 questionnaires looking at NPD activities in more than 40 British and Dutch companies from various industrial sectors. The results suggest that the nature of the relationship between integration and performance is contingent upon the project stage and the degree of novelty in the new product. Integration in the initial stages of...

  3. Dynamic spatial ability: An exploratory analysis and a confirmatory study

    Oliveira, Teresa Cristina Clímaco Monteiro d'
    Spatial ability is included in nearly every multiple aptitude battery. However, it has been defined and evaluated in such a variety of ways that it is difficult to be precise about the meaning of the concept. A first study addresses the spatial literature, considers several measures, and empirically explores the dimensionality of the spatial domain. Nine spatial ability tests and 1 computer- administered measure were administered to a total of 104 volunteers. Results from the exploratory factor analysis identified 3 main factors: visualization, spatial relations, and dynamic spatial ability. A second study was conducted to cross-validate this factor structure. A total of 141 participants were involved in this...

  4. Portuguese Norms for the Waterloo-Stanford Group C (WSGC) Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility

    Carvalho, Cláudia Maria Constante Ferreira de; Kirsch, Irving; Mazzoni, Giuliana; Leal, Isabel Pereira
    Abstract: Portuguese norms for the Waterloo-Stanford Group C (WSGC) scale of hypnotic susceptibility are presented. A Portuguese translation of this scale was given to 625 Portuguese college students. Score distribution, item analysis, and reliability of the WSGC are presented and compared to three North American samples. The findings show that normative data from the Portuguese sample are congruent with the reference samples. The only significant difference obtained was a lower proportion of participants scoring within the high range of hypnotic suggestibility on the WSGC.

  6. Impact of M&As on organizational performance: The moderating role of HRM centrality

    Correia, Manuela Faia; Cunha, Rita Campos e; Scholten, Marc
    In this study, we examine how the effects of mergers and acquisitions on organizational performance are moderated by human resource management (HRM) centrality. We differentiate three types of ownership change: mergers, bidder, and target acquisitions. The study is anchored on the literatures addressing strategic human resource management and strategic contingencies of intra-organizational power. In an analysis of the data from the 2005 Cranet survey, results showed that (i) formalization attenuated a positive impact of bidder acquisitions and aggravated a negative impact of mergers on performance, but (ii) HRM strategic involvement and centralization of HRM practices boosted a positive impact of bidder acquisitions on performance....

  7. Individual and collective suffering of organisational failures in containment: Searching for a model to explore protomental dynamics

    Morgan-Jones, Richard; Torres, Nuno
    In this article, boundary phenomena in groups and organisations are explored using both literal experience and the metaphor of skin that can be breached when shame or tact are lacking. One pathway researches how organisations can contribute to psychosomatic group diseases associated with the failed containment of shameless aggression and thus the failed creation of an internalised reliable container. A second pathway describes the emotional experience of having and belonging to an organisation with its own skin. We define how rigid, impinging or lax containment in organisations fail to meet the dependency needs of members making them vulnerable to group diseases.

  8. Organizational spiritualities: An ideology-based typology

    Cunha, Miguel Pina e; Rego, Arménio; Oliveira, Teresa Cristina Clímaco Monteiro d'
    The topic of spirituality is gaining an increasing visibility in organizational studies. It is the authors contention that every theory of organization has explicit or implicit views of spirituality in the workplace. To analyze the presence of spiritual ideologies in management theories, they depart from Barley and Kunda’s Administrative Science Quarterly article and analyze management theories as spirituality theories with regard to representations of people and the organization. From this analysis, we extract two major dimensions of people (as dependent or independent workers) and the organization (as spiritually informed or spiritually uninformed) that, in combination, result in a typology that advances four organizational types of spirituality: the soulful organization, the...

  9. Contrato de trabajo, compromiso y satisfacción: Moderación de la empleabilidad

    Cesário, Francisco J. Santos; Guillén Gestoso, Carlos; Montalbán Peregrín, F. Manuel
    La búsqueda de prácticas flexibles de gestión de los recursos humanos viene desempeñando un papel importante para el desarrollo estratégico de las organizaciones y en particular en contextos de profunda crisis económica y financiera como la actual en Portugal, con una situación de desempleo creciente y un clima generalizado de inseguridad laboral. Este estudio pretende examinar si la percepción de empleabilidad por parte de los trabajadores puede desempeñar un papel moderador en la relación entre formas más flexibles de contratación, como el trabajo temporal, y las actitudes laborales. Resultados sugieren que la percepción de empleabilidad puede tener un efecto moderador en la relación entre el tipo de contrato de trabajo y el compromiso...
