In their article, Jangga et al (2015) sought to establish the effects of environmental uncertainty and the flexibility of the supply chain towards supply chain innovation. The authors posit that supply chain management as a concept has continued to receive greater attention among organizations and academicians. Their exploratory study found out that environmental uncertainty affects organizational processes since they are forced to closely coordinate their activities or to reduce their reliance on inter-firm affiliations. While the article provides valuable insights on supply chain innovation, it falls short in providing in-depth information. The article also lacks empirical validation due to its nature of study, thus one cannot ascertain the aforementioned relationship. The article is important to my study, as it will provide me with information about supply chain innovation.
