Editorial board member profile – Edward Bruning
A professor at the University of Manitoba, Edward Bruning serves on the Marketing area of our editorial board. He has twice been recognized as an outstanding reviewer for CJAS and has reviewed more than ten articles in the last two years. Taken from the University of Manitoba’s faculty page:
Dr. Bruning’s academic interests center on the analysis of market participants, the structure under which competitive interactions occur in markets, and the process by which new markets emerge and develop. His current research agenda includes a project that compares customer loyalty between Canadian, American, and Mexican consumers. Funding for this effort was received from the SSHRC over a three-year period.
A second project addresses the process by which strategic alliances form, conditions leading to their success and premature demise, and public policy implications of global alliances, particularly as pertains to the global aviation sector. Dr. Bruning received a research grant for this project from the I.H. Asper School of Business.
A third project focuses on cross-cultural differences in information needs for users of technical manuals. Users and service personnel from twenty countries are subjected to a quasi-experimental manipulation to determine the preferred organization and absolute amount of technical information for maintaining large farm vehicles. The project was sponsored by John Deere Inc. in order to assess whether the content and structure of technical manuals should be ‘localized’ for users from different countries and cultures. Dr. Bruning’s efforts over the past two decades have focused on both the demand and supply sides of market interactions.
Professor Bruning’s level of commitment to CJAS and the quality of the feedback he provides serves CJAS and our authors well. He contributes to the overall positive experience authors receive when submitting to the journal.
