We already know that supply chain disruptions can be quite costly, and have not only direct but also indirect effects (eg. on stock prices). So do all supply chain disruptions have the same effect on the focal company? Of course not, but what are the driving factors that influence the impact?
In their conceptual note Craighead et al. (2007) analyse the factors of the impact supply chain disruptions.
What do professionals in the domain of supply chain management think about disruptions? How do they prepare for them, how do they act when a disruption occurs?
Blackhurst et al. (2005) answer these questions in their work about “An empirically derived agenda of critical research issues for managing supply-chain disruptions”.The authors are using three different empirical methods to achieve this goal empirically: Case study, surveys and focus groups.
