The Supply Chain and Operations Management team studies and teaches structures, processes and operational models of organisations. It develops theories and solutions for improving the performance of organisations, value chains and networks.
The Supply Chain and Operations Management team's research focuses on the following themes:
- Sustainable business models, networks and supply chains
- Professional service systems and operations management
The current research focuses on understanding how business models should be designed to create sustainable value in the networks of companies (e.g. business models in circular economy networks). The research provides tools with which firms can analyse and redesign their business models, value networks, and supply chains to become more sustainable.
Professional service systems and operations management research develops theories and solutions for improving the efficiency of the processes in professional public sector organisations and for developing methods that support organisational change. The ongoing research projects focus on health care and judicial systems.
