Starting around 2005 and for several years, the creation of a “Smart Grid” became a key element in the quest of policymakers to operationalize the goal of “sustainable development”. In official discourse, the Smart Grid promised improved energy security and a way to support the realization of ambitious targets on reduced carbon emissions and...

Urban areas are highly dependent on their urban water systems, which provide essential services such as access to clean drinking water, public health protection, and flood control. Global developments increasingly threaten the provision of these services: changing weather patterns, ongoing urbanization processes, and depleting natural resources...

This dissertation focuses on the research problem of divergence between the theoretical promise of big data use for public policymaking and the empirical support for that promise. To address this problem the dissertation asks three sequential research questions: Firstly, why does this divergence exist. Secondly, how can it be improved. And...

‘Falend toezicht’, ‘handhaving als probleem’, ‘toezicht onder vuur’ en ‘toezicht in crisis’. Uitspraken als deze laten zien dat het toezicht in Nederland vaak onder druk staat. Dat leidt tot veel aandacht van bestuurders en beleidsmakers - en tot een veelheid aan initiatieven om het toezicht te verbeteren. Dit boek gaat over toezicht - en richt...

The most dominant reason for the Dutch railways to innovate has been the expected increase in railway passengers and freight demand. To achieve this a large scale (re)design process of the railways as complex socio-technical system is needed. Since infrastructural expansion alone is not a sustainable option, solutions are also sought in...

Decision-making on large infrastructural projects is complex. The complexity arises from the interdependencies within and between technical and social systems. The dynamic environment in which the decision-making takes place adds to this complexity. In this dissertation, we use game concepts to understand complex decision-making processes, and...

In 2009 ProRail, the Dutch railway infrastructure manager started the use of gaming simulation to support its innovation processes. The organization found that innovations became more systemic and, railways being sociotechnical systems, increasingly involved both changes to technology and human behavior. Subsequently, the organization deemed...

Complex underground infrastructure construction projects tend to develop in a state of “bounded manageability”. Various types of uncertainties are inherent to these projects and put the project manager in front of serious challenges, risking budget overruns, delays and sometimes even technical failure. Managing such a project is a matter of...

Public infrastructure is often mentioned as a key to promoting economic growth and development. This belief has been supported by the observation of rich countries, such as the U.S., Japan and those in Western Europe, where plenty of infrastructures developed during times of rapid economic growth. China has been one of the world’s fastest...

Performance management systems are considered a key instrument for steering the performance of public sector organizations. Yet, little empirical insight exists on how public-sector professionals use these systems in practice. We know even less about why they use these systems as they do. For instance, most literature on performance management...

Gaming has played an important part in our daily lives for quite some time now. As a result, many researchers are interested in the various ways in which gaming has an impact beyond its own context. This dissertation explores one particular type of impact, i.e., the impact of gaming on organizations. It theorizes that gaming is a frame of mind...

Publieke toezichthouders zijn vaak onderwerp van kritiek. Ze zouden enerzijds een administratieve last vormen voor het bedrijfsleven, anderzijds wordt hen na incidenten veelal verweten niet of te slap te hebben opgetreden. In deze vijandige omgeving en budgettaire krapte staan zij voor de uitdaging kwalitatief goed toezicht te houden met...

Today, most cities function linearly. One way to improve their environmental performance is to make a transition from linear to Circular Urban Systems (CUS) so that part of the waste streams becomes valorised locally. This does not only require technical but also organisational and institutional changes. Moreover it implies that links have to be...

Lidstaten van de Europese Unie mogen hun ondernemingen niet zomaar staatssteun geven. Staatssteun kan de concurrentiepositie van deze ondernemingen versterken en daardoor de vrije en eerlijke concurrentie in de EU verstoren. Maar soms is staatssteun wenselijk, bijvoorbeeld om publieke belangen te borgen. Wil een lidstaat dergelijke steun...

Along with the rise of digital games over the past decades came an increased interest for using games for other purposes than entertainment. Although a few successes are known, much research seems to suggest little evidence for games’ advantages. Existing literature claims that more studies are needed that investigate the effective design and...

Een belangrijke ontwikkeling in het beheer van civiele infrastructuur is de toenemende mate van uitbesteding van onderhoud. Daarbij is een sterke groei zichtbaar in het gebruik van prestatiecontracten. De verwachtingen van de opdrachtgevers zijn hooggespannen: een kleinere eigen organisatie, betere dienstverlening, met lagere kosten, met meer...

Sinds enkele jaren bestaat veel discussie over het nut van prestatiefinanciering in universiteiten. Prestatiemeting gaat vaak gepaard met hoge verwachtingen bij universitaire bestuurders. Prestatieprikkels kunnen immers leiden tot meer productiviteit en hogere onderzoekskwaliteit. Maar sceptici wijzen op de onmogelijkheid om alle...
