Research Overview

My research concerns the governance of inter-organisational relationships in supply chains, with a focus on contracting and its interplay with relational governance mechanisms. I am particularly interested in how products and business services, including those procured by governments and public organisations, are contracted for and managed within exchange relationships, and to what effects. My current work concentrates on two research areas: (a) performance-based contracting for effective and efficient delivery of business services e.g. logistics services, and (b) contracting for innovation, especially in the context of the UK policy for public procurement of R&D and innovation. Such research has attracted external funding from various sources including the British Academy for Humanities and Social Sciences and the Swedish Defence Research Agency.
