چکیده

با توجه به افزایش رقابت میان شرکت­‌ها و پویایی محیط، شرکت­ها باید به سمت کسب و حفظ قابلیت­هایی مانند قابلیت‌­های پویا حرکت کنند که آن‌ها را قادر به سازگاری سریع با نیازهای جدید و کسب عملکرد برتر می‌کند. ازآنجاکه یکی از راه‌های دستیابی به مزیت رقابتی و عملکرد برتر یکپارچگی با تأمین‌کنندگان است، در این مقاله تأثیر قابلیت یکپارچگی با تأمین‌کننده به‌عنوان یک نوع قابلیت پویا که شامل سه قابلیت فرعی درک یکپارچگی، اجرای یکپارچگی و ارتقای یکپارچگی با تأمین­کننده است بر عملکرد شرکت بررسی شده است. به این دلیل که قابلیت یکپارچگی با تأمین‌­کننده می‌تواند از طریق وجود توانمندی‌­های دیگری در سازمان بر ارتقای عملکرد تأثیر داشته باشد؛ بنابراین نقش میانجی چابکی سازمانی نیز بررسی شده است. فرضیه­‌های پژوهش با استفاده از نمونه­‌ای شامل 80 شرکت تولیدی فعال واقع در شهر صنعتی رشت بررسی شد. روش پژوهش، توصیفی و از نوع پیمایشی بود و جمع­‌آوری داده‌ها از طریق پرسشنامه انجام شد. مدل­سازی معادلات ساختاری و الگوریتم حداقل مربعات جزئی به‌منظور تحلیل داده ­ها به‌کار رفت. نتایج نشان ­می­‌دهد که قابلیت یکپارچگی با تأمین­‌کننده به‌صورت مستقیم و غیرمستقیم تأثیر مثبت و معناداری بر عملکرد شرکت­‌ها دارد.

چکیده [English]

Increasing competition and dynamic environment, impose firms to gainand maintain dynamic capabilities that enable them to adapt quickly to new needs and obtain superior performance. Since integration with suppliers considers as important way to achieve a competitive advantage and superior performance, hence in this paper, the impact of the supplier integration capability (a dynamic capability which consists of sensing, seizing and transformation) on the firm performance has been investigated. Furthermore, as supplier integration capabilities can impact on performance through other capabilities, this paper explores the mediating role of organizational agility. The study is descriptive and data has been gathered from a sample of 80 active companies installed in Rasht Industrial Zone by using questionnaire.  For data analysis, structural equations modeling (SEM) and partial least squares (PLS) algorithm has been used. The results showed that the supplier integration capability has positive effect on firm performance.
