A maturing stream of logistics and supply chain literature has focused on supply chain relationships to understand how these relationships can impede or create a sustainable competitive advantage. Concurrently, researchers seek to understand how traditional supply chain management practices can be adopted into complex networks of various organizations that have a plethora of motives, missions and values. Obaze’s current research looks into complex supply chain relationship management and practices – in particular, how supply chain relationships that enable economic and social networks can be complex and yet achieve sustainable goals.
