Human Flows in The Supply Chain – Empirical Results

Agnieszka Jagoda , Jakub Marcinkowski , Mirosława Sztemberg-Lewandowska


Issues related to the supply chain management are currently being given more and more attention. Supply chain consists of enterprises cooperating in various functional areas, and their customers, among which the flows of material, information and finance are visible. It is worth noting, yet rarely emphasized in the relevant literature, that apart from the indicated flows of materials, information and finance, there is a need to identify and examine the human flows (or people flows) in the supply chain. The research approach adopted by the authors was intended to answer the initial research questions: (a) What are the situations and rules for human flows in the supply chain? (b) Who is set for a secondment to the other links in the supply chain? The empirical results have been obtained during a three-stage research process. The nomothetic approach has been adopted in order to present an overall picture of the analysed problem. The role of the prepared survey was to identify human flows in the supply chain from the enterprises that are the leaders of that supply chain.
