Executive Summary

The purpose of the paper is to explore the nature and implications of supply chain management in emerging markets. The paper is conceptual in nature, while it additionally draws on the author's previous empirical research on the topic. The paper proposes that EM contextual supply chain constraints spring either from the characteristics of institutions, networks or infrastructure. The degree to which a foreign company is affected by a constraint, depends on the role of supply chain management in the firm's business model. EM contextual supply chain constraints are proposed to result in suboptimal supply chain configurations, delayed or cancelled internationalization, and lower performance.
