The aim of the present literature study is to find the fundamental perspectives/models in the realm of supply chain management and to investigate whether they can be extended based on recent literature findings. The fundamental perspectives were found using a two-tier snowball collection method, including 1,287 articles. Using a critical rule set and customized multiplier values, three fundamental perspectives on supply chain management were found: (1) the structural perspective; (2) the relational perspective; and (3) the governance perspective. The original articles and the further developments in literature are discussed in this paper.
