Abstract

Blockchain technology is expected to be an important competency for information sharing within any supply chain. This study proposes two distinct roles to understand the relationships among blockchain competencies, information sharing and supply chain performance. In its enabling role, information sharing is expected to directly enhance supply chain performance. We also argue that the effect of information sharing is mediated by blockchain competencies which we conceptualize to comprise of blockchain infrastructure and blockchain capabilities. Based on survey data from professionals involved in blockchain-enabled supply chain initiatives, our study will test five proposed hypotheses about the role of blockchain competencies for information sharing in supply chains. We aim to contribute to existing knowledge on blockchain application in supply chains by providing theoretical and empirical findings.

The Mediating Role of Blockchain Competencies on the Information Sharing and Supply Chain Performance Link

Blockchain technology is expected to be an important competency for information sharing within any supply chain. This study proposes two distinct roles to understand the relationships among blockchain competencies, information sharing and supply chain performance. In its enabling role, information sharing is expected to directly enhance supply chain performance. We also argue that the effect of information sharing is mediated by blockchain competencies which we conceptualize to comprise of blockchain infrastructure and blockchain capabilities. Based on survey data from professionals involved in blockchain-enabled supply chain initiatives, our study will test five proposed hypotheses about the role of blockchain competencies for information sharing in supply chains. We aim to contribute to existing knowledge on blockchain application in supply chains by providing theoretical and empirical findings.
