ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to investigate how supply chain management components and supply chain performance affect organizational performance by measuring moderating effects of supply chain practices clusters of manufacturing firms. This study was conducted in the Union Territory of Puducherry, India. A three-phase statistical analysis which comprised phase one (supply chain practices clustering), phase two (convergent validity, reliability, and discriminant validity), and phase three (path analysis) was used to analyze the data. The results from this paper have shown that the critical SCM components will interact with supply chain performance to influence organizational performance. These findings provide important insights for managers to understand the disposition of the firm to better leverage critical supply chain by exploiting relationships with performance metrics. The paper is among the first empirical works that specifically investigate the relationships between SCM and Performance; thus this paper fills an important gap in the supply chain literature.
