Collaborating on Supply Chain Research

Talking Logistics

Is there a greater need for supply chain research today than in the past, and if so, why? That was my opening question to Steve Raetz, Director of Research and Market Intelligence at C.H. Robinson , in a recent episode of Talking Logistics titled, “ When Shippers, 3PLS, and Universities Collaborate on Supply Chain Research.” I asked Steve why they chose to partner with those universities, and why didn’t they just conduct the research themselves.

Showing Creativity in SCM Research

SCM Research

She challenges “recent perspectives that define quality as an alternative to global, industrial forms of production” and “finds that quality is also important for industrial food production and for the global geography of the surimi [a fish paste] seafood industry” In general, the author takes an interpretive approach – an approach that is almost absent in SCM research, and that might be inspirational for our otherwise empiricist discipline.

Multi-Methodological Research in Supply Chain Management

SCM Research

Just like OM research, SCM research is dominated by three research methodologies: (1) analytical modelling research (optimization, computational, and simulation models etc.), (2) quantitative empirical research (surveys etc., and (3) case study research. There has been a recent trend towards multi-methodological research that combines different methodologies. Methodology Analytical Modelling Case Study Empirical Research Trend

Open Content Research Recipe

Supply Chain Insights

Open Content research is similar. Historically, the selling of research has been a small revenue stream for the more traditional analyst companies. Research is at the center of our model. When research is shared and distributed freely, it becomes marketing for an analyst firm to drive revenue for speaking engagements, webinars, advisory sessions, strategy days and custom research projects. When we say that the research is designed to shared freely, we mean it.
