Exploring Hopes and Fears From Supply Chain Innovations: An Analysis of Antecedents and Consequences of Supply Chain Knowledge Exchanges

This dissertation sheds light on several hopes and fears from supply chain innovation in three distinct papers.

Paper one introduces the concept of Process Innovation Propagation as an appropriation technique helping to extract the most returns out of a process innovation by exporting to supply chain partners. Paper two devises and empirically tests knowledge properties that best lead to radical and incremental supply chain innovative capabilities. Lastly, paper three conducts an exploratory study that introduces factors affecting a firm’s optimum supply chain innovation strategy. The dissertation makes a strong argument that supply chain innovation is most prominently governed by power asymmetry that may either help or hurt innovative performance.
