Dynamic Alignment of Digital Supply Chain Business Models
A model for assessing the impact of Information System (IS) capabilities on the degree of strategic alignment within SCM domains has developed by qualitative research. Different approaches of leading researchers have combined to get a holistic and detailed view and ground the concept in theoretical evidence. Empirical evidence has found by its application at a traditional German steel company and a highly innovative Austrian steel company selected as polar types. The model enables to identify ideal levels to strategic fit needed on multi-levels from SC integration and antecedents that lead to superior performance and can avoid unnecessary IS investments. The study shows its usage in an IS Governance cycle for developing architectural artefacts as absorptive capacity of technical and organisational configurations, which helps to respond more agile to environmental changes and reduce complexity as key enablers of SC performance as well as its adoption to digital business models for autonomous alignment. Finally, the approach supports a collective view of objectives and actions by organisational assimilation.
