Operations Management in the Age of the Sharing Economy: What Is Old and What Is New?

‘Sharing economy’ is a term we use to refer to business models built around on-demand access to products and services mediated by online platforms that match many small suppliers or service providers to many small buyers.  These business models have emerged as an important area of study in operations management.

In this seminar, we use three "canonical" applications including (1) peer-to-peer resource sharing, (2) on-demand service platforms, and (3) on-demand rental networks as examples to highlight distinguishing features of ‘sharing economy’ business models and to probe new research questions.
