This study sought to determine the impact of supply chain management (SCM) on the operational performance ofSMEs in United States, with a focus on organizational skills. A study of 300 manufacturing SMEs in the United States that have used SCM methods was performed. Structural equation modeling was used to investigate the connections between the variables. The research indicates that implementing SCM methods enhances company performance and is linked to competences such as R&D, technology commercialization, manufacturing capacity, and marketing capabilities. As a result, a combination of SCM techniques and organizational skills may help SMEs achieve long-term overall company success. This study findings demonstrate that SCM methods and organizational skills have a substantial impact on overall company success. SCM strategies also have a major impact on SMEs' organizational capabilities. Evaluated the role of organizational skills in moderating the impact of SCM strategy on overall company performance. Higher levels of SCM practices may lead to improved supply chain and company performance, according to this study's findings. It also gives manufacturing company SC managers a multi-dimensional operational assessment of the construct of SCM for evaluating the comprehensiveness of their companies' SCM operations. This study is one of the first SCM studies on the Jordanian manufacturing sector, focusing on the practices that manufacturing companies in the nation must follow to make their supply chains a viable competitive vehicle for growth. The findings have ramifications for all manufacturers, especially in emerging countries where industrial expansion and the creation of integrated supply chains are critical phases in economic development.
