Abstract

The advent of the Internet has made it possible for companies to change the way they conduct their businesses. E-procurement, e-tailing, e-marketplaces are but a few examples of internet abled business applications that have revolutionized certain processes in supply chains and have given rise to e-supply chains. To ensure success, it is contended that a proper needs analysis is necessary before a company should embark on the e- business journey. The primary goal of this paper is to uncover the various factors that affect the implementation and performance of e-supply chains and subsequently to propose a framework that will exhibit the nature of the relationship between the said factors. This research employs a theoretical conceptual approach making use of existing literature and also a case study. Several groups of variables related to the success or failure of e-supply chains are uncovered. The relationships between these variables and the performance of e- supply chains are captured in the proposed contingency based framework. This paper also highlights that the framework can be used to explain existing e-supply chain dynamics and to generate new research questions that will aid in analyzing e-supply chains.
