This research sets out to explore what key factors senior executives should consider when they look to implement blockchain for supply chain. A number of design thinking workshops were organised with 86 senior executives representing a range of diverse supply chain stakeholders, including manufacturers, construction firms, government agencies, port authorities, law firms, banks, technology service providers and consulting companies. Further interviews with senior executives who have led blockchain initiatives were conducted in order to gain more in-depth insights on why those factors matter. The main outputs are a range of key factors that are critical to the successful implementation of a blockchain solution in supply chains. Those factors were grouped into: business viability, ecosystem management, technical feasibility and user desirability. This research makes valuable contribution to both practice and academic literature by highlighting what factors should be considered that will drive the successful adoption of blockchain
