Abstract

This chapter concludes the thesis at hand. In the first section of this chapter, the findings of this dissertation are summarized to give answers to the three research questions of this thesis. The second section of this chapter comprises a thorough discussion of research design and results to position this dissertation to related scientific literature. This discussion links the presented research into previous research in the field as outlined in the Chaps. 2–4. The last section of this chapter outlines limitations and future prospects for scientific research on value-based SCM.
