Amando Radomes Conference Attendance

Amando Radomes will present a paper at the International System Dynamics Conference in Frankfurt 17-22 July. The title of the paper is The certifier’s revision dilemma and strategic realignment blind spot in standard revision: The case of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. This study analyzes the impacts of a standard revision on the number of adopters. The concept of the certifier’s revision dilemma is introduced to describe the strategic decision situation where the certifying body has to balance the complexity of the standard and the time given to the adopters to strategically realign with the revised standard. Complexity-time ambiguities and feedback delays result in a strategic realignment blind spot. A systems model is developed to simulate standard adoption and strategic realignment dynamics using the case of the standard revision of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel cosmetic product group within the Danish market in 2018.
