Overcoming Performance Trade-Offs

  • Mikihisa NakanoEmail author


The principle for overcoming performance trade-offs is explained using the base-pivot-function model and the theory of performance frontiers. Through these theories, we understand two general approaches that improve multiple dimensions of performance. Finally, the focus of how firms overcome performance trade-offs in the SCM context is described.
