A case study approach at a media company (New Vision) in Uganda was used, where data was collected and analyzed to give a better understanding of the problem under discussion. The key research issue is to develop a system dynamic model for supply chain management in a resource constrained setting. This will be used as a decision support tool for evaluation and understanding of the problem that arise in a resource-constrained setting, to critically identify the current practices in supply chain management and factors that affect supply chains. This research develops a new conceptual framework for supply chain management strategies in resource-constrained settings and tested based on empirical evidence. The new schemes proposed here provide a model to define and represent supply chain strategies, a contingency model to support managers in designing supply chain strategies, and some hints for further research. The articulation of supply networks, as an extension of supply chains, seeks to accommodate and explain the commercial complexity associated with the creation and delivery of goods and services from the factory to their destination thats the customer.
