System dynamics research has made numerous contributions to a range of management subfields, including operations, organization behavior, marketing, behavioral decision making, and strategy. In this paper, we focus on the role for system dynamics research in making important progress on the defining issue in the field of strategy: why are some firms more(More)
Local observation is an important problem both for the foundations of a quantum theory of gravity and for applications to quantum-cosmological problems such as eternal inflation. While gauge invariant local observables can't be defined, it has been argued that appropriate relational observables approximately reduce to local observables in certain states.(More)
Technology projects are finding ways to provide information to people living in rural poverty. However, using information to affect health or farming practices requires overcoming unique challenges including illiteracy and lack of electricity. We examine the effects of a low-cost audio computer ("Talking Book")--a battery-powered, durable, handheld device(More)
We report on a precision measurement of the parity-violating asymmetry in fixed target electron-electron (Møller) scattering: A(PV) = [-131 +/- 14(stat) +/- 10(syst)] x 10(-9), leading to the determination of the weak mixing angle sin2(thetaW(eff) = 0.2397 +/- 0.0010(stat) +/- 0.0008(syst), evaluated at Q2 = 0.026 GeV2. Combining this result with the(More)
Previous studies have suggested that decision aid support can positively affect performance on dynamic decision making tasks. However, few studies have examined the effects of decision aid support on the cognitive mechanisms underpinning performance. This study tested the relationships between decision aid support (in the form of causal loop diagrams), task(More)
There are increasing opportunities for work at the intersection of system dynamics and strategy to make important contributions to mainstream strategy thinking and practice. Strategy scholars are calling for and need theories (models) to explain the dynamics of strategy phenomena to complement the large volume of work that has examined cross-sectional(More)
