— The paper investigates the inter-relationships between relationship integration, flexibility and agility across the organisation’s supply chain. Some hypotheses were drawn from an extensive review of the literature and an earlier qualitative research. The conceptual framework proposed in this paper contributes to the better understanding of the supply chain agility and its key antecedents, which is crucial to the business stability and prosperity amid the intense turbulence, uncertainty and competition.
