EDI: Emerging Approaches for Developing SCM Theory

Screenshot 2019-06-27 at 14.02.00.png

The topic for JSCM's third emerging discourse incubator (EDI) is emerging approaches for developing SCM theory. These approaches may be emergent in social sciences in general or they could be familiar in other disciplines, but not traditionally used by SCM scholars. The aim is to incubate a discourse on unique ways to build theory and encourage SCM scholars to develop theory both for the SCM context and for the wider range of disciplines that study organizations (and their decision makers) within networks of other organizations.
