Professor of Management and Iacocca Chair
Nada Sanders, professor of management and Iacocca Chair, has been teaching at Lehigh for two years, but was regarded as a supply chain management expert before even joining the university. She was selected to attend the Gordon Cook Conversations at Windsor Castle, which is intended to be a meeting of future world leaders, ranked in the top 8 percent of individuals in the operations management field by a study on U.S. business school research productivity in the Journal of Operations Management, and is a fellow at the prestigious Decisions Sciences Institute.
For the past few years, Sanders has been expanding her supply chain research to focus on sustainable SCM, and identifying ways to better “green” the supply chain. “I am working on a number of interesting forecasting projects that relate to forecasting global disruptions and managing associated supply chains,” she says.
Sanders is also the author Supply Chain Management: A Global Perspective, co-author of Operations Management and numerous other book chapters. Most recently, Sanders has published or completed journal articles on developing dynamic capabilities, alternative benchmarking strategies on SCM performance, the impact of buyer firm information connectivity enablers on supplier firm performance, the costs of forecast errors and how information technology impacts buyer-seller performance.
Sanders has had three publications reviewed as research of significance in the forecasting field, is on the board of directors at the International Institute of Forecasters, and serves as an associate editor for both the Decision Sciences Journal and the Journal of Business Logistics.
