  •  Assrar Sabry    


The aim of the research is to add to the knowledge of supply chain management practices by exploring the relationships among three constructs of supply chain management capabilities (SCMC) including outside–in process capabilities (OIC), inside-out process capabilities (IOC) and spanning process capabilities (SC) as the concepts proposed by Day (1994) and confirmed by the empirical studies provided through Tracey, Fite and Sutton (2004) and Tracey, Lim and Vonderembse (2005) through developing and testing a research framework of supply chain management capabilities and its impact on business performance construct. Based on the literature review, a proposed research model and five hypotheses are developed. The results indicated that there are significant positive correlation between the three constructs of supply chain management capabilities and business performance. Hypotheses (H2 and H4) are supported and accepted, hypotheses (H1 and H3) are supported but partially accepted, and hypothesis (H5) is rejected; therefore, the overall obtained results of testing the research hypotheses supported the proposed relations in the research.
