Abstract
Background: The topics of supply chain management and innovation have,
disjointedly, been in the spotlight for some time. However, the
combined topic, supply chain innovation, have only recently begun
to attract academic interest, and there is a vast gap between
literature and industry demand. Most of the existing research on
supply chain innovation concerns incremental innovation; little
research exists on radical innovations in supply chains and how to
work with it. The authors aim to fill this gap, thus the focus of this
study is radical supply chain innovation.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to generate a generic and actionable
model of how to achieve radical supply chain innovation.

Methodology: To fulfil the... (More)

study is radical supply chain innovation.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to generate a generic and actionable
model of how to achieve radical supply chain innovation.

Methodology: To fulfil the purpose, a constructive approach with an embedded
multiple case study was used.

Conslusions: A generic and actionable model for radical supply chain innovation
was created. Five types of radical supply chain innovation
were identified, with consecutive outputs. The outputs were found
to be competitive advantage of two kinds: added value and cost
benefits. In order to achieve radical supply chain innovation,
a mix of targeted innovation tools, antecedents to radical supply
chain innovation, and generic innovation tools are recommended. (Less)
