This paper develops a research model of drivers of supply chain capability and firmperformance. Resource-based view (RBV) and dynamic capability (DC) theories underpinthis research. Unlike traditional studies focusing on larger companies, we concentrate onexploring the relationship between IT and small-to-medium enterprise performance. In thisresearch-in-progress, we build a theoretical model to be tested using structural equationmodelling on a dataset of 250 Australian small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) acrossdifferent industrial sectors. This research has important implications in regard to sources ofcompetitive advantage, dynamic positional advantage, and firm performance.
