JSCM at IPSERA 2019
Last week JSCM was at IPSERA (The International Purchasing and Supply Education and Research Association) annual conference, this year the conference took place in Milan, running from 14th-17th April 2019.
The IPSERA 2019 conference theme was “Art and Science of Procurement”, which reflects the two sides of the discipline. On the one hand Procurement requires the application of science and technology, analytical skills and quantitative methods; on the other hand there’s a need for creativity and understanding of soft behavioural skills.
The conference provides a forum for academics and practitioners to present research papers and discuss opportunities to improve effectiveness and creativity in organisations through the design of innovative purchasing and supply chain strategies. The underlying intent of the conference was to gain a better understanding of strategic radical changes and innovations with environmental, ethical, and responsible organisational performance.
