Abstract [en]

Balancing efficiency and responsiveness has been identified as an overall challenge for decision makers in supply chain management. The literature offers several strategies for managing this balance challenge. From a decision-making perspective this is a significant contribution but in combination the strategies also result in complexity related to the different alternatives offered. This study does, however, show that the strategies share a common foundation in terms of content related to decoupling thinking, which is based on flow discontinuities. Using the strategies’ individual strengths, a process is outlined that takes advantage of these strengths through a four-phase ongoing process.
