Dealing with the Devil of Deviations: Managing Uncertainty during Product Development Execution
2012 (English)In: R&D Management Conference, 2012: Book of Abstracts, 2012, 147-147 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
This paper examines how deviations are managed in a complex product development setting. Past research has focused on how deviations could be avoided. By using participant observations, interviews, and data from deviation-reports this paper illustrate the routines and roles dedicated for deviation management. Furthermore, it suggests a typology of deviations developed from the rich data material. Insights into different roles and managerial strategies, especially in relation to different types of deviations represent important implications in the area of R&D management.
