We would like to congratulate Dr. Robert Stoll for receiving his DBA in Operations and Supply Chain Management from Cleveland State University on May 15, 2010. His dissertation was entitled, "Collaborative Planning Forecasting Replenishment (CPFR): Successful Implementation Attributes," and his teaching and research interests include the areas of supply chain management, statistics, operations management, and management science. An overview of Stoll's dissertation is below:
"This dissertation offers a theoretical and empirical explanation for why interfirm collaborations form yet often fail, and further suggests how firms might manage them for a more positive outcome. Since CPFR implementations are a recent phenomena and its literature base is extremely thin, a triangulation research method is employed."
-Dr. Robert Stoll
