Abstract

The objective of this paper is to understand how contextual factors, i.e. product and supply complexity affect the application of mitigation strategies to manage supply chain vulnerabilities in a developing country and achieve robustness and resilience. The study uses contingency theory as a lens to build theoretical foundation and multiple case study as a methodology to conduct the empirical investigation
