Abstract: This study investigates the effects of supply chain management (SCM) practices on organisational performance in pharmaceutical industries. The relationship between SCM practices and organisational performance based on performance metrics such as productivity, efficiency, profitability, market share, return on investment and sales are examined. We developed a novel methodology based on structural equation model by combining a qualitative and quantitative approach. We also considered 119 pharmaceutical companies as we formulated set of hypotheses based on the positive influence of supply chain management practices on organisational performance and SCM practices and supply chain performance. The results show that strategic purchasing, customer relationship management, strategic supplier relationship, information sharing and internal lean practices are significant predictors of organisational performance. In addition, we find that information sharing, although relevant in the supply chain, does not impact organisational performance.
