Beverly B. Tyler, professor in the Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at NC State Poole College, received her Ph.D. from Texas A&M University (chair, Dr. Jay Barney) in 1992 where her research focused on top executive information processing and organizational decision making. During her early career she extended her research to include organizational and inter-organizational cooperation and relationship management. More recently she has applied cognitive, organizational, and relational lenses to the domains of new product development, supplier relationship management, international investment decisions, performance feedback, and university-industry-government research relationships. Although she is primarily a behavioral theorist, Dr. Tyler values and often seeks to integrate multiple theoretical perspectives in her publications.
Currently, Dr. Tyler is pursuing several projects that consider multi-sector, multilevel, interdisciplinary collaboration focused on developing innovative technology. She is also extending her research on how job roles influence contract evolution to the context of new product development in video games. She continues to use a multi-method approach in her research: policy capturing experimental designs, data analysis of large sample databases, analysis of documents and interviews, mail surveys, and cognitive mapping methods. Dr. Tyler’s research has appeared in Organizational Science, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Operations Management, Journal of Supply Chain Management, Journal of Product Innovation Management, and Journal of Engineering and Technology Management.
