Item description for Research Methodologies in Supply Chain Management by Herbert Kotzab...
While supply chain management has risen to great prominence in recent year, there are hardly related developments in research methodologies. Yet, as supply chains cover more than one company, one central issue is how to collect and analyse data along the whole or relevant part of the supply chain. Within the 36 chapters 70 authors bring together a rich selection of theoretical and practical examples of how research methodologies are applied in supply chain management. The book contains papers on theoretical implications as well as papers on a range of key methods, such as modelling, surveys, case studies or action research. It will be of great interest to researchers in the area of supply chain management and logistics, but also to neighbouring fields, such as network management or global operations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Research Methodologies in Supply Chain Management?
Research made easy Jul 10, 2008
Is there something like the right research design for supply chain studies? I believe there is, and in Research Methodologies in Supply Chain Management it is more than likely that you will find a research approach that will suit your needs. The books is divided into 5 parts, corresponding to 5 types of studies, each with a set of selected articles pertaining to 1. Literature Review, 2. Surveys , 3. Case Studies, 4. Action Research, and 5. Modeling. I like this structuring and each article or sub-chapter is self-contained to some degree and provides valuable insight for both seasoned and budding researchers still fumbling in the dark. I use it as a handbook whenever I start a new project, just to remind myself of the strengths and pitfalls and the to do and not to do of each approach.
