To foster the research climate within the school, the Research Dean’s Office set up a series of research brown bags. The purpose of these research brown bags is to highlight current cross-disciplinary research at Vlerick Business School and to create opportunities for sharing recent research insights. Through videoconferencing it is possible to follow the brown bags from Ghent, Leuven or Brussels. They can be attended, free of charge, by all people from Vlerick, parent universities or other academic institutions.
This brown bag on “Scale Development: Theory and Applications” served three purposes:
- to share insights about measurement and how to develop a valid and reliable scale,
- to illustrate the theory with a real example based on own experience with scale development, and
- to create a forum for the exchange of best practices and questions & answers between the attendees (which might be both people who have or have not experience with scale development).
