Abstract

Business excellence represents the absolute or best quality a firm can deliver to satisfy its customers. The European efficient consumer response (ECR) initiative was formed to re-engineer the way business is done in the grocery industry to achieve business excellence by implementing cooperative strategies between retailer and manufacturer to fulfil consumer needs better, faster and at less cost. However, ECR implementation has not been smooth in most settings and thus business excellence in ECR supply chains is lacking. This paper reports on an exploratory study of the Austrian grocery supply chain that examined the success factors and pitfalls that have to be considered when translating ECR techniques into a business excellence framework.
