Another objective of this chapter is to identify the definition of SC best practices and its level of adoption by SMEs. The findings of this research suggest a linear link between SC best practices and the benefits it has on firms; it also identified that the definition of SC best practice is endlessly evolutionary and sometimes circumstantially subjective. The research has moreover shown that the level of knowledge management plays a wider role on the effectiveness of SC best practices within a firm.
