Abstract

Buying firms lack transparency about supplier relationships in their networks. The application of Supply Network Mapping can help to analyze these relationships. However, the impact of SNM on the purchasing performance has not been explored yet. Moreover, companies with different competitive strategies might use it differently. Therefore, this paper tests the impact of SNM on the purchasing performance. A multi-group analysis compares when cost and innovation leaders use it. We show that information quality and SNM improve the purchasing performance. Moreover, cost leaders use SNM for supplier relationships with sub-suppliers, while innovation leaders use it for relationships with other customers.
