Dr Xiaotian Xie is a research fellow affiliated with the DECADE project. Recent research has focused on the challenges and facilitators associated with adopting and governance blockchain technology within supply chains. Particular focus has been on the new competitive valuable capabilities and dynamic capabilities organisations develop when implementing and using Blockchain in the supply chain. He works with Prof Glenn to examine key capabilities needed for effective blockchain implementation across five core dimensions: intra-organizational, inter-organisational, governance, technological, and human resource. He is now considering strategizing a model to quantify these essential capabilities and investigate the capacities vital for fostering information sharing and trust amongst supply chain stakeholders in the backdrop of Industry 4.0. He is partnering with the DECADE team to explore transdisciplinary work.
