Why is it important?

Previous studies have been fragmented in that they have neither provided a holistic view of a knowledge-responsibility-performance link, nor considered the catalysing role of SRM in the link. Based on the responses collected from a survey, structural equation modelling, along with a moderated-mediation approach, were used to examine the research model.


The results indicate that KMC and CSR positively affect OP directly and indirectly through SRM. Moreover, MS acts as a moderator between KMC, CSR, and SRM. By using a comprehensive framework, this study offers insights into the literature on supply chain, CSR, and KM and explains the significance of SRM in catalysing the knowledge-responsibility-performance link.
