Purpose – This paper aims to investigate the gap between the interests in supply chain collaboration (SCC) and the relatively few recorded cases of successful applications – this is the reality of SCC.
Design/methodology/approach – The research represents the viewpoints of the authors based on their collective field experiences and literature reviews.
Findings – Three realities of SCC are identified – establishing the prerequisites for the collaboration process; where the process starts; and where it terminates. Moreover, a realistic structured approach to SCC containing three loops is outlined.
Research limitations/implications – Increased awareness for practitioners in SCM by crystallizing when collaboration is useful; what to change; what to change to; and how to make changes happen.
Originality/value – The value of the paper is that it offers a “different” perspective on SCC.
