EasyChair Preprint no. 9968

12 pagesDate: April 14, 2023


CSR has received limited attention when defining competitive priorities for procurement strategy development. Thus, the paper aims to answer the question: Considering the growing relevance of CSR, how can SMEs achieve strategic fit of the procurement strategy? Design science research is applied in this working paper. We propose an extended competitive priority concept and offer a two-step solution procedure to develop a consistent procurement strategy, including determining the relevant dimensions of each competitive priority and weighting the competitive priorities using AHP. Lastly, we apply this solution in a small plant engineering company to develop the procurement strategy.

Keyphrases: Competitive priority, CSR dimensions, Innovation, Procurement Strategy, SME
