Strategies for agility : an evolutionary and configurational approach.

McCarthy, I. P. and Tsinopoulos, C. (2003) 'Strategies for agility : an evolutionary and configurational approach.', Integrated manufacturing systems., 14 (2). pp. 101-113.


Configurational theory can significantly enhance understanding of organisational strategy and diversity. Despite this, there have been limited efforts to examine the value and utility of configurational research as a method for realising manufacturing strategies. This paper introduces a strategic management framework based on configurational theory and an evolutionary classification method (cladistics). Focusing on agile manufacturing concepts, the framework provides a system for collecting and organising information on manufacturing routines and capabilities. This facilitates the processes of strategic analysis, strategic choice and strategic information.
