In the rapidly changing world, a new management paradigm focused on collaboration for customer value generating processes is needed.
Prof. Dr. Jack van der Veen is a professor of Supply Chain Management at Nyenrode Business University. He is part of the Faculty Expertise Center Marketing & Supply Chain Management
In 1986 van der Veen completed his studies in Econometrics (cum laude) and in 1992 he obtained his PhD in Economic Sciences from the University of Groningen. In 1990 van der Veen came to Nyenrode and has worked in various roles (including Associate Dean Degree Programs) with a brief interruption (2009-2012 when he was at the University of Amsterdam). His current roles include vice chairman of the General Management Examination Board (ECGM) and technical chairman of the Central Examination Committee (CEC).

Van der Veen's research interests are in the areas of Operations Research, Operations & Logistics Management, Lean and Supply Chain Management. Within his work, implementation issues in chain cooperation are central. Thereby, he is interested in how cooperation in internal and external chains can be stimulated and underlying issues can be eliminated. This is multidisciplinary research in which cooperation between disciplines is very important; for this, Nyenrode with its inspiring and committed colleagues is a great environment. 

Van der Veen has published many articles, both in international research journals and in management-oriented journals. He also regularly publishes blogs & columns on chain cooperation, sustainability, digitalization and (social) innovation on various websites. 


In his spare time, van der Veen enjoys being active (mainly hiking and cycling).
