BAM Performance Management SIG Event Report - Tuesday 6th June

13th June 2017

On 6th June 2017, the BAM Performance Management SIG held an event on “Big Data/Business Analytics and Performance Management” kindly hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University. Colleagues from various Universities joined us for a day of great presentations, but also for a hands-on workshop on how to make this topic work for their individual research needs. We also joined the nation at 11:00 a.m. with a two-minute silence to pay our respects to the victims of the recent attacks in Manchester and London.

After a brief introduction by Dr Luisa Huatuco (Performance Management SIG Chair), the opening plenary “Performance Measurement and Decision Making” was given by hosts Drs Sai Nurudupati, Sofiane Tebboune and Julie Hardman, showcasing their current research findings on the topic. Afterwards, the keynote speech “Big Data Analytics and Operations Management Research: Concepts, Benefits, Challenges and Research Opportunities” was given by Prof. Samuel Fosso Wamba from Toulouse Business School (France) which provided us with some inspiring research questions as well as academic career advice especially for early career researchers and PhDs. The afternoon presentation “Making sense of big data – can it really create competitive advantage?” was given by Dr Olga Matthias from University of Bradford, with some interesting results from her recent research. In the latter part of the afternoon, each of the presenters as leading academics provided individual advice to delegates in helping them shape their research. Overall, it was an enjoyable event for all participants.
