Research opportunity

Shared Leadership in Supply Chain Internal Integrations.

Internal integrations are critically important for SCM success. However, a significant amount of companies have failed with internal integration implementations. At the core of integrations are people, relationships, and influence of others (leadership), however it was found that these aspects are rarely studied as antecedents to successful internal integrations. Further research is needed on human behaviour and influence of leadership practices in SC internal integrations. This research will study Shared leadership practices and whether they influence SC internal integrations.
