dc.descriptionAs the global competition gets deeper and wider; companies have to find different ways to keep up with the competition. The ways companies use may differ; however, the only goal is to survive in the harsh conditions of the global market. Survival depends on how robust the companies are against the changes of trends, and diverse situations. Therefore, companies must be adopting themselves to the limitless changes of the environment they exist in, which is –in our time- the entire world. A supply chain with suitable attributes brings many advantages to the companies that are involved in it in this aspect. Improving the supply chain with some tools makes it possible to adopt the changes of the market into the supply chain organization. In order to have strong competitive capabilities in the market, all the units of organizations must be innovative. Each of these units in the supply chain must make proper innovations to work more efficiently. This situation brings about the concept of supply chain innovation, which covers all the innovative activities that aim the better operation of the whole supply chain and to gain competitive advantage.en_US
dc.description.abstractIn this paper we present a taxonomy of supply chain and logistics innovations, which is based on an extensive literature survey. Our primary goal is to provide guidelines for choosing the most appropriate innovations for a company, such that the company can outrun its competitors. We investigate the factors, both internal and external to the company, that determine the applicability and effectiveness of the listed innovations. We support our suggestions with real world cases reported in literature.en_US
