Abstract

This paper investigates how the network position of a focal company in a scale-free supply chain network impacts the economic performance of that company. Network flows of a sample of focal companies are merged to create a section of the scale-free supply chain network. Social network analysis provides data on network position of the focal companies. Network position is studied for its impact on a variety of financial performance measures. Several findings confirm dependencies between network position and economic performance. The analysis of different performance measurement models recognises Bonacich power (connectedness to connected companies) as one major influencing factor.
