The title of Imranul’s lecture, which took place online via Zoom December 3 due to the Covid-19 situation, was "COVID-19 and New Demands on Suppliers’ Capabilities and Performance: Reflecting on the New Realities of Sourcing Affected by the COVID-19 Global Pandemic and Discussing what Demands these New Realities Put on the Garment Suppliers in Bangladesh and other SouthEast Asian Markets.".

Summary of the thesis

Imranul’s thesis investigates how buyer-supplier relational dynamics affect the capability development and performance improvement of garment suppliers. The findings of his study demonstrate that buyer-supplier relationship types and governance do affect suppliers’ heterogenous capability development and performance improvement. His study also shows that buyer-supplier relationships, working environment, and organizational performance are linked and affect each other, while a buyer’s business model influences the relationship types and governance.
