Supply process development with an inter-organisational and intra-organisational perspective
by Maqsood Sandhu, Petri Helo
International Journal of Logistics Systems and Management (IJLSM), Vol. 6, No. 2, 2010

Abstract: Using established project management theory as a foundation, the paper analyses the supply process and its impact on gains from business process development methods. Discussion of the challenges faced by the project based organisation and suggestions to improve project supply performance are presented. The findings reveal that the extent to which firms witness optimisations through such procurement is dependent not only on the intra-organisational process of corporate systems, but also on the inter-organisational perspective. The choice of concepts and final construction of the framework is informed by an empirical research of EPC projects, and a case study of the power plant is presented.
