Managing Unplanned Events In Large Infrastructure Projects: Results From An In-Depth Comparative Case Evaluation

This contribution intends to move beyond the truism that infrastructure project management is contextual and evaluates which configurations of management actions and contexts produce what outcomes. Therefore, we introduce multi-value Qualitative Comparative Analysis (mvQCA) as a complexity-informed method, and apply it to the Dutch A2 Maastricht infrastructure project. An analysis of eighteen cases within the project showed that context is …

Beleidsevaluaties Tussen Methode En Praktijk: Naar Een Meer Realistische Evaluatiebenadering

‘Leren van evalueren’, zo klinkt het steeds vaker in de evaluatiepraktijk. Maar steeds vaker wordt (h)erkend dat hoewel dit aantrekkelijk klinkt, de praktische haalbaarheid vaak gering is. Dit komt doordat methoden ofwel niet in staat zijn om op overtuigende wijze effecten toe te schrijven aan beleid, ofwel over-contextualiseren ze zodanig dat lessen moeilijk kunnen worden …

Understanding And Researching Complexity With Qualitative Comparative Analysis: Evaluating Transportation Infrastructure Projects

In the article we propose a complexity-informed framework for evaluating transportation infrastructure projects. The article does this through four steps. First, the properties of infrastructure development projects are discussed. This leads to the conclusion that the specific locality or contextualization of a given project is important for explaining the outcome. Hence, there is a need for an ontology and …
