Abstract

This research study aims to unpack the factors that underlie tensions in building a flexible and sustainable procurement function using an inductive case study
approach. The analysis resulted in the development of a conceptual framework
that identifies tensions and their sources across three dimensions: decision drivers, decision filters, and decision context. The findings contribute to a better understanding of the flexibility-sustainability paradox across supply chains, which will inform the subsequent development of response strategies to mitigate the resulting tensions. For practitioners, the findings provide a dissected view of the procurement decision environment for building a flexible and sustainable procurement.
