Abstract

This PhD thesis explores the contract selection and planning under uncertainty in the context of the buyer-supplier relationship in a dyadic supply chain (SC). Comprising a systematic literature review and two empirical studies, this work contributes to the literature on the performance of SC contracts and practice by adopting a behavioural lens. I provide a theoretically grounded explanation for contract design preference given individual attitudes and behaviours (covering risk attitude, individualism, future-orientation, and uncertainty avoidance) and accounting for market demand uncertainty. Managers can consider developing ways to utilise the findings to have targeted interventions to enhance the firm’s operating systems.
