Operations Management: Is There a Disconnect between Journal Article Content and Employer Needs?
Singer, Marc G.; Welborn, Cliff A.
Journal of Education for Business, v89 n8 p396-402 2014
The authors sought to determine whether topics researched by academicians in the field of operations management were aligned with the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) employers were seeking from potential employees. Twenty-eight research topics were identified in the operations management literature and were compared to the KSAs derived from 200 online job postings. Ultimately, six research topics were found to be aligned with the KSAs employers were seeking, 10 topics were underrepresented, and 12 topics were overrepresented.
