Researchers’ Perspectives on Supply Chain Risk Management
Year: 
2012

The article on review today serves two distinct needs, by summarizing the current (2012) state of supply chain risk management.
The title of the article implies, that this is only a summary relevant for researchers. But this is not the case: of course there is also a short summary of current research and supply chain risk management, but a major part consists of two focus groups with practitioners and researchers, to define the current gaps in supply chain risk management.

Paper

An Empirical Investigation into Supply Chain Vulnerability Experienced by German Firms
Year: 
2006

One basic assumption in risk-aware supply chain design is the notion that the design of the supply chain actually has an impact on the vulnerability of the supply chain.
This question has been analyzed about six years ago in a broad empirical study by Wagner and Bode.

h5. Method

The authors use a rather large sample of companies in Germany. Overall nearly 5000 supply chain professionals were asked to participate and 760 actually took part in the study.

Negotiation strategies in supply chain management
Year: 
2008

Within a supply chain many supplier-buyer relationships exist. Even though supply chain management aims to take a high level view, these dyadic relationships form the basis of the supply chain and therefore should be the focus of a supply chain analysis.

The negotiation of the terms of these relationships defines the structure of the supply chain and can affect the power and profit distribution within the supply chain itself.

So, this week we’ll have a closer look at negotiations in the supply chain using a 2008 paper by Frederik Zachariassen.

After the 2004 tsunami, which heavily affected parts of Thailand and Indonesia, national and international disaster response was quick to support the affected regions.

Within several weeks of the disaster, approximately 400 international non government organizations (NGOs) were working in Indonesia alone providing basic assistance to the affected population.

Paper

How relevant is OM research to managerial practice?
Year: 
2011

There are only very few studies, which investigate the impact of research in business has on the actual research field.

In other fields the impact is easily seen. Without research there would be no modern medicine, without research there would be no buildings rising 800m and more.

But where would business be without research in the business and economics sciences?
