  • Contributes to an emerging field by offering a collection of studies on the topic authored by leading scholars coming from different disciplines and using different theoretical lens and research methodologies
  • Compares the different research methodologies to overcome the dichotomy between qualitative and quantitative research, between empirical research and models
  • Guides the readers through multiple aspects of the subject and provides an updated and expanded view of the factors that influence the operations management

Behavioral Operations Management  has been identified in the last years as one of the most promising emerging fields in Operations Management. Behavioral Issues in Operations Management  explains and examines up-to-date research in this field, which works to analyze the impact of human behavior on the management of complex operating systems.

 

A collection of studies from leading scholars presents different methodologies and approaches, supported by real data and case studies. Issues such as building trust and strong cooperative relationships with suppliers, enhancing motivation and designing proper incentives for stimulating more effective decision maker behaviours are considered. The main decision-making processes affected by behavioral issues are also analyzed with a focus on new product development, logistics, and supply chain integration.

 

The broad coverage of methodologies and practical implications makes Behavioral Issues in Operations Management an ideal reference for both researchers developing new topics such as NK fitness landscapes and managers with an interest in behavioral management operations.
