Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


This research aims to advance theoretical understanding around the management of supply chain disruptions through a multi-stage Delphi study on supply chain resilience. Stage one focused on polling academic experts followed by a second stage with practitioners from automotive, electronics and food industries. We examine the types of disruptions that respondents are most concerned about; the associated strategies suggested to cope with disruption; and, how resilience can be measured. The research remains ongoing but preliminary results suggest there are some areas where academics and practitioners agree (e.g. measuring resilience) and others where they do not (e.g. key disruptions and strategies).
