THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR BUSINESS PROCESS INNOVATION - Towards a Research Program on Global Supply Chain Intelligence

Charles Møller

Abstract

Industrial supply chains today are globally scattered and nearly all organizations rely on their Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) for integration and coordination of their activities. In this context innovation in a global supply chain must be driven by advanced information technology. This paper proposes a research program on Global Supply Chain Intelligence. The paper argues that a conceptual framework for BPI is required to approach innovations in a global supply chain. A research proposal based on five interrelated topics is derived from the framework. The research program is intended to establish and to develop the conceptual framework for BPI further and to apply this framework in a global supply chain context.
