EDI: Public Policy and Supply Chain Management: Using Shared Foundational Principles to Improve Formulation, Implementation, and Evaluation

In this weeks spotlight we talk to Professor Travis Tokar and Professor Morgan Swink about their paper which is included in our upcoming EDI issue. “Public Policy and Supply Chain Management: Using Shared Foundational Principles to Improve Formulation, Implementation, and Evaluation” This second EDI focuses on research at the Intersection of Supply Chain Management and Public Policy and Government Regulation

“Public policy and associated governmental regulatory issues play critical roles in shaping the practice of supply chain management (SCM). To date, however, these issues remain largely unexplored by SCM researchers. This article makes the case that such issues are highly relevant to the field of SCM, and that SCM researchers are uniquely positioned to speak to the issues by virtue of the foundational principles and levels of analysis that define our discipline. The discussion provides suggestions and examples of how fruitful research might be conducted in this space.”

EDI:Understanding the downstream healthcare supply chain: Unpacking regulatory and industry characteristics

In this weeks spotlight we talk to Dr. David Dobrzykowski about his paper which is included in our upcoming EDI issue. “Understanding the downstream healthcare supply chain: Unpacking regulatory and industry characteristics” This second EDI focuses on research at the Intersection of Supply Chain Management and Public Policy and Government Regulation.

“Hospital leaders face unprecedented pressure to improve traditional supply chain performance measures such as cost, quality, and customer experience. As such, healthcare executives are increasingly turning to the operations and SCM field to provide thought leadership and establish best practices around coordinating information, material and financial flows in healthcare delivery. Unfortunately, our learnings from traditional manufacturing, and to some extent other service supply chains, do not always easily port to the downstream healthcare delivery supply chain due to regulatory issues and distinctive characteristics present in this network. Grounded in Institutional Theory, this study conceptualizes the downstream healthcare delivery supply chain, highlights important regulatory pressures that influence this supply chain, and examines the effects of government regulation and the unique characteristics of this network on coordination. In doing so, this conceptual study brings to bear important contextual considerations, and motivates novel research areas where the SCM field can make substantial contributions”

Call for Papers for the 2020 Emerging Discourse Incubator: Research at the Intersection of Supply Chain Management and Public Policy and Government Regulation

Journal of Supply Chain Management is delighted to announce  a call for papers for our second Emerging Discourse Incubator.

"The topic for JSCM's second emerging discourse incubator (EDI) is research that focuses on the intersection of supply chain management (SCM) and public policy and government regulation (PPGR). PPGR encompasses the laws, regulations, and government and regulatory agencies’ actions. The aim is to incubate a discourse with major schools of thought in political economy that have been largely unexplored in our discipline."


The full details can be accessed here: 2020 EDI

Timeline
June 2018:  Initial call for submissions
June 2018:  December 2019:  Submissions to EDI, as well as regular submissions, are welcomed and will be processed upon submission.
January 2019:  Invited papers are expected to appear online to initiate the discourse.
January 2019 - December 2019:   Papers related to the EDI will be published online as they are accepted.

Please direct queries to any of JSCMs co-editors: Mark Pagell (mark.pagell@ucd.ie), Brian Fugate (bfugate@walton.uark.edu), or Barbara Flynn (bbflynn@iu.edu).

From the Editors—Introducing JSCM's First Emerging Discourse Incubatlor for 2018/19

What is an Emerging Discourse Incubator?

 

 

EDI: Journal of Supply Management presents it's first Emerging Discourse Incubator
Screen Shot 2018-02-02 at 10.34.49.png

This week Journal of Supply Chain Management is delighted to showcase it's first Emerging discourse incubator.
The topic for the first EDI is research where the focal actor in a supply network is not a for-profit firm. The goal is to incubate a discourse where organizations such as NGOs, regulators, and the like are viewed as managers of their own supply networks, rather than as non-traditional members of other firms’ networks. While these networks may contain for-profit firms, the focus is on managing them from the perspective of organizations whose main motivation is not profit maximization (Carter, et al., 2015; Pagell & Wu, 2009).

With the exception of humanitarian logistics, SCM research is almost always based on a for-profit firm as the focal actor in the network, typically with the explicit aim of increasing its profits. This is a major oversight, since actors such as NGOs also manage supply chains, thus, perspectives other than maximizing one actor’s profits may be more relevant (Pagell & Shevchenko, 2014). For example, Rodríguez et al., (2016) describe how NGOs use traditional supply chain management practices to alleviate poverty. NGOs and the like are expected to develop unique practices, due to their motivation and resources (Rodriguez, et al., 2016). Research needs to explore this, in order to both improve management of these actors’ networks and enable for-profit firms to better achieve their sustainability goals. Thus, the goal of this EDI is to expand our knowledge so that the SCM field is of value to all organisations involved in managing a supply network.

Professor Mark Pagell one of JSCM's Editors in Chief gives an overview and introduction to this Emerging Discourse Incubator while the papers included in this EDI are linked below.

The Roles of Institutional Complexity and Hybridity in Social Impact Supply Chain Management: Madeleine Pullman, Annachiara Longoni, Davide Luzzini

 
EDI Spotlight: Emerging Discourse Incubator: The Roles of Institutional Complexity and Hybridity in Social Impact Supply Chain Management

This week we turn the spotlight on the first paper from our Emerging Discourse Incubator.

We sat down and talked with Professor Mellie Pullman, Dr Annachiara Longoni and Dr. Davide Luzzini about Social Impact Supply Chain Management looking at how social enterprises manage their supply chains to generate social benefit while maintaining or improving their financial viability in the long term.


"Supply chain research and practice has moved beyond green or environmental issues to include social issues. But much of the focus still remains on attempts of large companies to reduce social harm along their supply chains rather than creating social good. At the same time, research investigating the role of NGOs in supply chains or humanitarian logistics often emphasizes temporary initiatives and overlooks long term viability. This conceptual paper seeks to expand the playing field by looking at how social enterprises manage their supply chains to generate social benefit while maintaining or improving their financial viability in the long term. Our contribution is to consider those socially motivated organizations that lie on the continuum between purely social and purely commercial enterprises. We consider how these organizations manage their supply chains for social impact and define this area as social impact supply chain management (SISCM). In this work, we view these organizations and managerial issues through the lens of institutional complexity, i.e. the presence of multiple and possibly conflicting institutional logics in the focal organization. We propose that for these organizations, supply chain strategy, stakeholder identification and engagement, and relationship management might differentiate SISCM from traditional supply chain management. And as a result, we offer future research directions that might add clarity to effective SISCM."
