Research Proposal
Full-text available
Advances in research methodologies are important for the field of logistics and supply chain management (LSCM). These advances not only improve how we as researchers conduct rigorous research, but also also allow us to ask novel and practically relevant questions. These two – advances in methods and advances in the questions we can ask - are connec...

The multilevel paradigm is omnipresent in the organizational sciences, with scholars recognizing data are almost always nested – either hierarchically (e.g., individuals within teams) or temporally (e.g., repeated observations within individuals). The multilevel paradigm is moored in the assumption that relationships between constructs often reside...

Alexander Bogdanov (1873–1928) was a Russian social theorist and revolutionary activist whose ‘universal organizational science’, or Tektology, is increasingly being recognized as offering stronger foundations for the systems approach than the later ‘general system theory’ of Ludwig von Bertalanffy. Had his thinking not been suppressed by Stalin, t...
