Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present an approach for effective information sharing (IS) in supply chain (SC) by understanding the relationship between various information sharing enablers (ISEs). Using interpretive structural modelling (ISM), the research presents a hierarchy-based model and the mutual relationships among the ISEs. The research shows that there is a group of ISEs having a high driving power and low dependence which requires maximum attention and is of strategic importance while, another group consists of those ISEs which have high dependence and low driving power which requires the resultant actions. This categorisation provides a useful tool to top management to differentiate between independent and dependent ISEs and their mutual relationships which would help them to focus on those key ISEs that are most significant for effective IS enablement of SC.
