International Journal of Procurement Management (IJPM), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2012

Abstract: This paper aims to examine sourcing risk management issues faced by foreign invested small companies (FISCs) that operate in China. Using a case study approach, this paper investigates the relationship between perceived sourcing risk and organisational control. The research findings show that foreign invested small companies operating in China exercise different types of organisational control to mitigate different sourcing risks. We also suggest managerial insights on effective sourcing in China.
