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.”

“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”

EDI: Implementing government policy in supply chains: an international coproduction study of public procurement

In this weeks spotlight we talk to Prof. Christine Harland and Dr. Andrea Patrucco about their paper which is included in our upcoming EDI issue. “Implementing government policy in supply chains: an international coproduction study of public procurement” which they co-authored with Prof. Dr. Jan Teglen, Prof. Dr. Guy Callender and Mr Rick Gimm. This second EDI focuses on research at the Intersection of Supply Chain Management and Public Policy and Government Regulation

“Public procurement is the commercial arm of governments, contracting for goods and services to feed public sector service provision. However, mainstream operations and supply chain management journals have published little on supply chains to governments, public procurement, and the significance of engaging small businesses in government supply chains. Policy feedback theory and thirteen coproduced international case studies of public procurement and small‐business agency dyadic relationships are used to explore this space. The research highlights the importance of both public procurement and small business as areas of policy and supply chain management research. Policy feedback theory is introduced as a means to understand relationships, and is applied to a coproduction study to understand how supply chain management research can both explore and change policy.”
