In this manuscript we explore how engaged research can support the development of the theory and practice of supply chain management (SCM) and present critical engaged research as an extended form of engaged research. The article’s main purpose is to examine more closely the relationship between critical engaged research and the process of theorizing. This essay presents an expanded model of knowledge production for the field of SCM and explores the opportunities for the production and co‐production of new knowledge types, with an emphasis on knowledge produced through a critical engagement with practice. We offer a discussion on how critical engaged research may be applied in SCM research to build, elaborate and test theory.
