Research output: Indexed journal article Articlepeer-review


The IPSERA 2023 main conference called for papers under the theme of “Systemic Change”. With this editorial, we intend to introduce the basic elements of systemic change, explaining why it is relevant for tackling complex sustainability problems and what are the major implications for Purchasing and Supply Management (PSM). We then explore future research directions, organized around a typology of four workarounds in complex systems, in an attempt to highlight opportunities for future research on resourceful, immediate, and adaptive ways to approach systems change. We finally conclude with an overview of the selected papers contained in this special issue.
