dc.description.abstract Supply chain is one of the important pillars driving business competitiveness, and its performance is critical for the success of the organisation. This research aimed to investigate the applicability of the sand cone model with regard to improving supply chain performance to being more lean (efficient) and agile (effective), within South African food fast moving consumer goods manufacturers (FMCGs) and food retailers. The sand cone model says one must implement and embed agile initiatives first before implementing lean initiatives to create high performing supply chains. en
