Institution: Ivey Business School, Western University (London, Canada)
Jury Gualandris joined the IPSERA Executive Committee in March 2016. He is currently an Assist. Professor at Ivey Business School, Western University (London, Canada). Before accepting this appointment, he was an Assistant Professor at UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School (Dublin, Ireland).
In his responsibility of Marketing and Membership Lead on the IPSERA executive committee, he enjoys working with IPSERA members and friends to gather and responsively diffuse material information that may support our research and teaching endeavors.
Jury's research is positioned at the intersection between supply chain management and sustainability. Particularly, his research is primarily concerned with how organizations develop, adapt and leverage their supply chains to positively impact their business, society and the natural environment. This research has investigated how trust, integration and globalization at the supply chain level affect the extent to which manufacturing firms within the chain successfully adopt safer and greener production and sourcing practices. This research has also theorized how manufacturing firms can build full accountability in their supply chains, and the importance of leveraging inclusive decision-making processes that align divergent stakeholders' expectations. An emerging line of research investigates how International NGOs cooperate with other non-profit organizations and for-profit firms to deliver transformational change in social and industrial systems. This research aims to describe, understand and predict how INGOs should configure their own supply chains to deliver people-centered developmental services for human progress and environmental conservation.
Jury is an Associate Editor of JPSM and seats in the Editorial Review Board of the ‘Journal of Supply Chain Management’ and 'International Journal of Operations and Production Management'.
His teaching is synergistic to research and covers areas such as ‘Corporations and Society’, 'Operations Management', ‘Supply Chain Analytics’ and ‘Project Procurement’. Jury’s teaching philosophy resolves around individualized learning through an inclusive and interactive sense-making/giving process. He aims at providing a safe, encouraging and challenging environment to his international students. He is keen to combine case studies discussion and role-play simulations to advance students’ learning and facilitate the development of know-why (scientific or causal knowledge) and know-how (procedural knowledge).
