Formatted Abstract/Summary
This research uses confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation
modelling to examine how organizational size - made up of four dimensions -
control, resources, trust and complexity - impacts on utilization of industry-led
supply chain innovation capacity in a traditional agribusiness industry, the
Australian beef industry. It confirms small business rather than larger
business accords greater importance to exploiting supply chain dynamic
capabilities, particularly in relation to utilizing industry –led supply chain
innovation capacity. For small business in Australian beef supply chains,
being agile and able to adapt and align their business practices with supply
chain partners is integral to ensuring these businesses remain relevant and
competitive in this market. In theoretical terms this is supported by authors in
the dynamic capabilities literature as they argue these types of capabilities
enable organizations to innovate faster (or better), often leading to the
creation of newer sources of competitive advantage.
