Professor Lamming is an active researcher and teacher in the field of supply chain management, with a focus on innovation and sustainable development.

Previously he was Director of the School of Management at the University of Southampton, where he led a turn-round in the School’s position over five years. In the 1990s, he was a Professor in the School of Management at the University of Bath where he started the Centre for Research in Strategic Purchasing and Supply (CRiSPS), developing the concepts of environmentally sound supply networks and innovation in inter-organisational relationships.

Before Bath he earned his Doctorate at the University of Sussex Science Policy Research Unit, in the field of technological innovation in supply chains. In the late 1980s he was a senior research fellow on the International Motor Vehicle Programme at MIT, conducting research that led to the development of ‘lean production’ concepts.

Prior to his academic career, Richard worked in the engineering and automotive industries and in management consultancy.

Research

Research interests

In his research career, he has raised £6.5million in funding, £3.7 million in a principal role. His last three completed research projects for the UK’s Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (total over £1m) were all assessed as making a significant or very significant contribution to knowledge. His research benefits from collaboration with many business organisations.
