MetadataShow full item record
This study contributes to the scientific literature as follows. First, a framework for evaluating the performance of SRD plans has been developed. Second, the performance based evaluation has shown a different and more nuanced picture with regards to SRD plan implementation as compared to previous empirical studies that took a conformance approach. Third, the identification and examination of influencing factors to the performance that were derived from previous studies. Fourth, the identification of influencing factors that were not pre-listed. Fifth, the study has shown that the internal and external processes of SRD plan implementation are two different processes, that the stage of performance differs between the internal and external implementation, and that similar and different factors are of influence to the internal and external performance.
