MIS Professors’ Articles are Accepted in Top-Rated MIS Journal

Dr. Bill Kettinger, a FCBE Professor and FedEx Chair of Excellence in MIS, recently published an article in the prestigious academic journal, International Journal of Product Research. His article titled, “The Value of Information Systems for Product Recovery Management,” discussed the role of information systems in product recovery management.

The paper presents analytical models that provide a numerical example to determine under what conditions investments in Information-intensive Product Recovery Systems (IPRS) are economically justifiable for manufacturers. It also addresses when policy-makers need to consider facilitating their implementation.

This article has immediate application to manufacturers' IS strategy and to government policy-makers who are considering investing in and/or structuring product recovery closed-loop supply chain processes. It also opens a potential stream of research concerning the role of IPRS in closed-loop supply chains. Kettinger co-authored this paper with Dr. Toyasaki and Dr. Wakolbinger.

Additionally, Drs. Kettinger and Chen Zhang’s article was accepted in the prestigious Information Systems Research, an INFORMS academic journal consistently ranked as one of the top two MIS journals. The articles entitled ‘A View from the Top: Integrated Information Delivery and Effective Information Use from the Senior Executive’s Perspective,” focuses on how senior business executives assess the efficiency and the effectiveness of information delivery through their companies’ IT infrastructure. The study highlights the important role of the IS function as a facilitator of effective information use and a nurturer of a strong information culture in organizations. It concludes by offering practical advice on how senior executives assess and improve integrated information delivery and effective information use to create value.
