I am a firm believer in lifelong learning. It is a privilege to be an academic and have the opportunity to help others develop and grow. I very much enjoy co-learning with my students and extending the boundaries of knowledge. During my own learning journey I have been very fortunate to have worked with a number of generous and open minded scholars who have helped me develop a systematic perspective of business. Through my work with professionals and students I attempt to help others broaden their views and consider the wider context of the problems they encounter.
I enjoy collaborative researcher and over the years it has been a real pleasure to work with some of the best known experts in the field. Using a constructivist approach we have developed, and globally tested a rigorous supply chain auditing methodology. Outputs from these audits are codified, and the resulting insight into real-world supply chain integration is arguably my best known area of research. Over time I have increasingly become interested in the behavioural aspects of supply chain management. For example I have been working with scholars from around the world for the past three years investigating the effects of different national cultures on supply chain management. A large amount of my current research energy is spent on exploring supply chain relational networks. Together with my doctoral students we are investigating the fundamental role social network ties contribute towards successful supply chain collaboration.
