报告内容摘要


报告内容:

In almost all  fields of economics, business and management, a fundamental question is  whether to centralize or decentralize a firm and/or a supply chain.  Conventional wisdom suggests that centralization or supply chain coordination  is desirable because it can eliminate inefficiencies such as double  marginalization. However, there has been a persistent research stream  demonstrating the strategic benefits of firm and/or supply chain  decentralization. For example, it has been found that supply chain  decentralization is better when selling durable goods. For another example, a  firm or supply chain may want to decentralize to strategically influence  external players’ decisions. In this talk, I will first attempt to review  some such research from Accounting, Marketing, and Operations which shows the  strategic benefit of decentralization under various contexts. I will then  present some of my recent research in this research stream.
