Abstract

Nowadays, organizations have to innovate either in product or in management (Damanpour and Aravind, 2012). If innovations in product are largely studied (Garcia and Calantone, 2002), managerial innovations are seldom studied (Soosay et al., 2008; Arlbjørn et al., 2011). Simultaneously, organizations develop Supply Chain Management (SCM) to manage their inter-organizational relationships with their partners (Chen and Paulraj, 2004). SCM "constitutes an interesting potential area for creating competitive advantages through innovations" (Prahalad and Krishnan, 2008, p.14) e.g. VMI, CPFR and supply Kanban systems. Our interest is to underline and discuss the key dimensions explaining the performance of inter-organizational managerial innovations in the context of SCM. From a large literature review, three dimensions emerge to measure these innovations: (1) the conditions and context for their deployment, (2) the involved organization's capacity for innovation and (3) the performance of these innovations. Nevertheless, no pertinent measurement scale exists to evaluate these three dimensions. In this perspective, the aim of this research is to develop and validate a scale measurement for each of them. The supporting methodology is quantitative. A structural equation modeling is applied to the data from a questionnaire to 170 inter-organizational anagerial innovations in the context of SCM in France. The three measurement scales resulting from this research represent major methodological and theoretical contributions to the field. Consequently, supply chain managers are able to identify the main issues and factors to perform interorganizational managerial innovations in the context of SCM.
