The increasing pace of globalisation and deregulation has changed the role of purchasing and it has evolved from a (traditional) routine to a more prominent strategic function. This research tests and analyses the strategic character of the purchasing function and its ability to create competitive advantages for its company. Based on the four important strategy theory approaches: market-based view, resource-based view (RBV) capability-based view and relational view and their respective rent generation mechanisms, the research framework developed evaluates whether specific rent-based supplier management activities across industries have an impact on performance, as proposed in the strategy literature.
