Abstract

Supply chain management has made great strides in becoming a discipline with a standalone body of theories. As part of this evolution, researchers have sought to embed and integrate observed supply chain management phenomena into theoretical statements. In our review, we explore where we have been, and where we must travel for the discipline to continue to evolve. Unlike previous reviews of SCM theory, we pursue a novel approach that is based on an analysis of explorative survey data collected from academics. This research presents an overview of the prevailing theories in terms of their relevance and their empirical support.
