Plambeck, E L and Ramdas, K (2020) Alleviating poverty by empowering women through business model innovation: M&SOM insights and opportunities. Manufacturing and Service Operations Management, 22 (1). pp. 123-134. ISSN 1523-4614 OPEN ACCESS

Abstract

Manufacturing & Service Operations Management (M&SOM) has published papers of importance for poverty alleviation. Yet, rich opportunities for impactful research remain as yet untapped. Operations management (OM) insights suggest business model innovations that alleviate poverty by simultaneously empowering women, protecting natural systems or mitigating pollution, increasing incomes, and creating low-cost, high-quality products or services. OM researchers can help empower women and overcome poverty by developing, testing, refining and disseminating such business model innovations.
