Abstract

At the heart of Huselid and Porter and Kramer’s Configuration and Creating Shared Value models is the need to deal with a ‘black box’ organisational performance problem. The author argues that the theories subsumed in both models could benefit from a method for their implementation, given their anticipated support and promises to organisations and society. The results from four SMEs are presented as part of the development of an implementation method to support preferred performance levels. The results from eighty-five semi-structured interviews with management and staff point not only to the inability of the models to deal with organisational performance problem but also identify four sets of individuals’ strategies that could resolve SMEs’ performance problem and contribute to the configuration and CSV proposals. The method highlights how individuals have developed their capability through reflections to resolve their SMEs’ performance. This is a further extension of Alvesson and Skoldberg’s ‘reflexive methodology’.
