Supply Chain Management Dimensions, Supply Chain Performance and Organizational Performance: An Integrated Framework

Anant Ravindra Deshpande


Evidence has shown that organizations seldom achieve the competitive advantage offered by supply chain
management technique. This may be attributed to the fact that current methodologies for analyzing supply chains
are not sufficiently comprehensive, particularly when it comes to understanding the complexities of SCM and
organization performance in an unified context. In addition, researchers have not comprehensively answered key
questions such as what are the linkages between different dimensions of SCM and what are the linkages between
the underlying dimensions of SCM and SCM performance. Gap also exists in terms of understanding of the
relationship between SCM performance measures and organizational performance measures. The study seeks to
address these issues. Based on a comprehensive literature review, a theoretical framework and propositions are
derived. In culmination, the description for possible findings and implications of the study for managers is
considered. Overall, we argue that increased interaction between important constituents of supply chain
management will enhance the organization’s ability to meet desired goals. Finally, directions for future research
are also presented.
