Purpose: What are the current research topics being studied by higher education professors in the area of operations management in Spain with regard to the learning of their students? Are the approaches that support these investigations adequate?

Design/methodology/approach: For the analysis, we have selected 25 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals published by Spanish authors in 2017, and we have encoded them using Atlas.ti.

Findings: Most of the research centers on a very basic type of approach to learning, which reproduces the type of research typically conducted more than 40 years ago (type 1). For this reason, we propose an example of how to convert type 1 research questions into type 2 or 3 questions.

Originality/value: This paper collects and summarizes the main works on learning research carried out by members of ACEDEDOT and published in 2017, identifying themes, methods, levels of teacher conception and focus on the type of student learning. We intend to use this information to create a map of the current situation and propose possible suggestions to implement evidence-based instruction on operations management.

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to establish definitions and dimensions of Triple-A supply chain (SC) variables based on a literature review and to validate a Triple-A SC measurement model using a worldwide multiple informant sample. Design/methodology/approach Following a literature review, Triple-A SC variables (agility, alignment and adaptability) are conceptualized and a list of possible items is created for their measurement. An international 309 plant sample is used to validate the convergent and criterion validities of the composites proposed to measure Triple-A SC. Findings Contributions to the literature: clarification of Triple-A SC variable concepts; identification of key dimensions of Triple-A SC variables; development of a validated Triple-A SC measurement scale for future empirical research and industrial applications. Research limitations/implications A rigorously validated instrument is needed to measure Triple-A SC variables and enable researchers to credibly test theories regarding causal links between capabilities, practices and performance. Practical implications Proposal of a scale for use by managers of different functions to analyze Triple-A SC deployment in the company. Originality/value The only Triple-A SC scale used in the previous literature has serious limitations: scales were not taken from an extended literature review; data were collected from single respondents in a single country. This is the first validated Triple-A SC measurement model to overcome these limitations

In this article we propose an innovation competence model of the people which is based on the existing literature to integrate and complement existing models. The main contribution of this work consists in demonstrating the differences and similarities of current models and in providing a conceptual definition for each model element. In this way, both researchers and people in charge of human resources in companies obtain a framework with which to design measuring instruments to assess innovation competence, which can fulfill the twofold demand of validity and reliability.

Resumen

Objeto: Con este trabajo se pretende analizar cómo afectan las características del contexto del aprendizaje, es decir, cómo es el trabajo de los estudiantes en la asignatura, al potencial motivador de la asignatura y a la satisfacción de los estudiantes

Diseño/metodología: Mediante ecuaciones estructurales (SEM) se ha analizado los datos de una muestra transversal (cursos 2008, 2009 y 2010) de 535 estudiantes de ingeniería industrial y administración de empresas, de una universidad pública española.

Aportaciones y resultados: Los resultados, utilizando un instrumento validado y adaptado al mundo docente, demuestran la asociación existente entre las características del tipo de trabajo de los estudiantes, el perfil motivador de la asignatura  y la satisfacción.

Limitaciones: la escala de identidad no tiene un ajuste excesivamente bueno y sus resultados deberían considerarse tentativos. La muestra es limitada para generalizar las conclusiones, debería extenderse en el futuro a otras universidades y contemplar estudiantes de posgrado.

Valor añadido: en este trabajo confirmamos que se cumple el modelo JDS adaptado a la docencia. Comprobamos que las variedad, la identidad, la significación, la autonomía, la retroalimentación del puesto y la retroalimentación social  son elementos de un constructo de segundo orden que representa el perfil motivador de de la asignatura y que los valores de este constructo están relacionados positiva, significativa y sustancialmente con la satisfacción general percibida por el estudiante. También hemos comprobado que estas relaciones se mantienen en muestras de alumnos de diferentes años o de titulaciones bastante dispares. Gracias a ello, los profesionales docentes pueden utilizar el modelo de  análisis y rediseño de puesto para ayudar a favorecer la motivación y la satisfacción de sus estudiantes.

Abstract

Purpose: We analyze how it affects the teaching model to motivational potential of the course and student satisfaction. Design/methodology: Using structural equation modeling (SEM) has analyzed data from a cross-section (2008, 2009 and 2010) of 535 students of industrial engineering and business administration, a Spanish public university.

Findings: The results, using a validated instrument adapted to the teaching world, demonstrate the association between the characteristics of the type of student work, the motivating potential of the subject and satisfaction.

Research limitations/implications: The Identity scale does not have good fit and the results should be considered tentative. The sample is limited and does not allow to generalize the findings, it should be extended in the future to include other universities and graduate students.

Originality/value: This work confirm that the JDS model adapted to teaching is met. We found that the variety, identity, significance, autonomy, job feedback and social feedback are elements of a second-order construct representing the motivating potential of the subject and that the values of this construct are positively related, significantly and substantially to the overall satisfaction perceived by the student. We have also found that these relationships are maintained on samples of students from different years or rather different degrees. As a result, education professionals can use the model for analysis and redesign of jobs to help foster motivation and student satisfaction.

Etapas en la evolución de la mejora continua: Estudio multicaso

Resumen:

Objeto: El modelo de evolución de la mejora continua en las empresas está en un estado intermedio de desarrollo. En investigaciones previas se han planteado y validado las etapas o niveles y los comportamientos o conductas asociadas a cada una de ellas en los procesos de mejora continua. Sin embargo no está clara la relación entre etapas, rutinas entendidas como conjuntos de comportamientos y facilitadores. En este trabajo se propone una definición conceptual diferenciada para los facilitadores y para las conductas de la mejora continua. También se ha recopilado y resumido un listado de los facilitadores que dan soporte al desarrollo de la mejora continua en la empresa y propone un modelo de cuándo y cómo se activan los facilitadores y el impacto que tienen esos facilitadores para ir avanzando en las diferentes etapas de evolución del programa de mejora continua.

Diseño/metodología: Estudio cualitativo multicaso con 4 empresas medianas, líderes en sus sectores, y con recursos económicos.

Aportaciones y resultados: Presenta una propuesta de relación entre facilitadores, etapas de evolución y sus conductas asociadas y pone de manifiesto que la evolución de la implantación de la mejora continua no se trata de un continuo incremental, sino que existe un punto de discontinuidad entre las etapas 3 y 4, que exige un cambio radical en el proceso de implantación.

Valor añadido: Extiende el modelo de Bessant et al (2001) explicitando cómo avanzar en el desarrollo de la implementación de unos niveles a otros superiores a través de la activación de los facilitadores adecuados. También presenta ejemplos de aplicación que pueden resultar muy ilustrativos para los directivos de producción. Además, plantea una secuencia de activación de los facilitadores que permite orientar a los mandos en la toma de decisiones relacionadas con la implantación y despliegue de la mejora continua en sus empresas.

Purpose: The evolution model of continuous improvement is at an intermediate stage of development. Previous research had been raised and validated levels and behaviors of continuous improvement. However, there is no clear relationship between levels, routines in terms of group of behaviours, and enablers. We propose a differentiated conceptual definition for facilitators and for the behaviors. We have also collected and summarized a list of enablers that support the development of continuous improvement. In addition, we propose a model of when and how to activate the enablers and the impact of these enablers to go forward at different stages of evolution of the continuous improvement.

Design/methodology/approach: Qualitative Multicase study with 4 midsize businesses with financial resources and leaders in their industries.

Findings and Originality/value: Presents a relationship between facilitators, phases of evolution and its associated behaviors and demonstrates that the evolution of the implementation of continuous improvement is not a continuous incremental, but there is a point of discontinuity between stages 3 and 4 , which requires a radical change in the implementation process.

Originality/value: extend the model of Bessant et al. (2001) explaining how to advance the implementation to higher levels of continuous improvement through the activation of appropriate facilitators. It also presents examples of applications that can be very illustrative for production managers. Also raises an activation sequence of facilitators for guiding the manager in making decisions related to the implementation and deployment of continuous improvement in their companies.
