Abstract

Supply chain management (SCM) enables the internal and external integration of business processes with customers and suppliers in order to add customer value. There is a burgeoning need to implement SCM in organizations stemming from increased competition that is nowadays between networks of organizations rather than individual actors. Thus, SCM needs to be incorporated into an organization’s existing competitive strategies. However, there has been little theoretical discussion or empirical study regarding the prioritization and implementation of SCM strategies within organizations. This paper discusses a recently-developed decision tool for identifying and prioritizing strategies to improve SCM implementation and its preliminary use in a replication study of SCM managers in Austrian organizations.
