JSCM Virtual Methods Series

Experts share their expertise on specific methodological topics in five online sessions.

JSCM’s European team has organized a series of five impulse sessions to provide a forum to discuss experiences and concerns related to methodological topics with experts. Renowned scholars share key insights from their specific fields and encourage participants to think about new methodological approaches and research questions. Each of the sessions takes place via Zoom on a Thursday at 4:00 pm CET / 10:00 am EST and will run for about an hour.

The first session on February 18, 2021, on the topic of “Analyzing and Theorizing Supply Networks” was moderated by the experts, Tingting Yan (Wayne State University) and Jury Gualandris (Ivey Business School at Western University). The webinar focused on exploring the unique and under-addressed features of supply networks. In an interactive and exclusive exchange, more than 250 participants shared their experiences about theoretical and methodological opportunities and challenges related to the study of supply networks. By the end of the session, the participants had a better understanding of the distinctive features of supply networks, prominent gaps existing in the literature, and methodological challenges.  

Next week's session from the Journal of Supply Chain Management Virtual Methods Series will be on case study research and led by Miriam Wilhelm and Zhaohui Wu.
