Micha Hirschinger emphasizes the importance of foresight on logistics and institutions in particular for effective decision making as distinct research in this context is limited. He applies a systematic and transferable multi-method approach based on Delphi studies and fuzzy c-means cluster analysis to develop profound scenarios for the future. He uses the relevance of information-processing requirements to investigate whether centralization of purchasing organizations increases functional efficiency. The author finally shows how a sharing-ecomy business model transfer could help to overcome the limited access to factor markets, especially trucks, at the base of the pyramid.
Prior to his current position as consultant at a leading global management consulting firm, Micha Hirschinger worked as research associate at the Chair of Supply Chain Management at the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg.
