Shardul Phadnis

Associate Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management

Dr Shardul Phadnis is an Associate Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management at the Asia School of Business. He previously served as the Associate Professor and Director of Research at MIT SCALE Network’s Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation.

His research explores the intersection of supply chains and strategic management: how organisations create value by orchestrating supply chain operations and how strategy processes influence the adaptability of supply chain structures and processes.

Dr Shardul’s book Strategic Planning for Dynamic Supply Chains (2022) describes first-hand accounts of applications of scenario planning in three in-depth cases involving strategic supply chain planning in businesses and long-range planning in governmental transportation planning agencies. His work has also been published in various journals, including Strategic Management Journal, MIT Sloan Management Review, and Technological Forecasting and Social Change.

His current research examines three lines of inquiry: supply chain resilience through vigilance enabled by scenario planning, value creation by managing operational uncertainty in supply chains, and analysis of end-to-end supply chain configurations.

Dr Shardul received the Giarratani Rising Star Award for 2015 from the Industry Studies Association for his research in apparel supply chains. He holds a PhD in Engineering Systems from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.
