The symposium, “Exploring the Leading Edge in Supply Chain Management: Complexity, Responsiveness, Governance,” brought together leading supply chain scholars and executives to link research to practice in emerging areas in the field.

The conference concluded with a panel of professors from McMaster University, Ryerson University and Dr. David Dobrzykowski, UT assistant professor of information operations and technology management, and director of the School of Healthcare Business Innovation and Excellence. The panelists discussed developing areas, including health-care operations and supply chain management, green supply chain and sustainability, as well as behavioral operations.

Hong and Dr. Seong Ho Kim, associate professor of electronic commerce and international trade in the College of Business and Economy at the Gyeongnam National University of Science and Technology in South Korea, won the conference’s Best Paper Award for “Strategic Integration of Global Supply Chain for Green Reputation: Case of Korean Global Firms.”

Dobrzykowski and Dr. Mark Vonderembse, professor and interim chair of finance, won honorable mention for their paper titled “Exploring the Interaction Effects of Coordination Mechanisms in the Health-Care Delivery Supply Chain.”
