Discussion covers the various options available for the development of a strategic supply chain model which can accommodate the increasing demands placed upon it from globalisation and technological changes and which could be useful for businesses. The issues of research philosophy, research paradigm and research angle are all discussed in the context of their logical approach, the data methodologies they suggest and the way in which this data will be utilised. From this a discussion of the most appropriate methodology continues focussing upon the use of fuzzy Delphi models. The advantages and disadvantages of fuzzy Delphi are outlined before reaching conclusions about the best approach to be taken in the following chapters.
