Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In today’s world, supply chains are becoming more complex and more vulnerable due to increased interdependency of multiple threats. This paper investigates the vulnerability sources in context of sustainable supply chain in order to minimize the impact of uncertain events. The capability-based perspective is discussed in this paper to understand the strategies to improve the resilience of the supply chain. Paper argues that organisations must think beyond their boundaries to accumulate or integrate network resources and develop critical collaborative capabilities across the supply chain to successfully encounter future disruptions.
