Jury's research interests focus primarily on exploring when and how supply chains generate negative (positive) externalities for society and the natural environment. This research emphasizes, first, examining what structures limit (foster) supply chain accountability and sustainability, and second, understanding how leaders in public, private and non-profit sectors can collaborate to fundamentally reframe such structures to benefit businesses, society and the natural environment. This research has helped to better understand how trust, integration and globalization at the supply chain level positively affect the extent to which manufacturing firms within the chain successfully adopt safer and greener production and sourcing practices. This research also theorizes multiple ways through which manufacturing firms can build full accountability in their supply chains, leveraging inclusive decision-making processes that align divergent stakeholders' expectations. Jury’s most recent publication sheds light on how non-profit organizations coordinate influencing, advocacy and development activities that deliver transformational change of global supply chains. Current research projects look at the duality change-stability with the development of sustainable supply chains.
This research has received several awards and has appeared in top academic journals including Journal of Operations Management, Journal of Supply Chain Management, International Journal of Operations and Production Management, and several others.
