Supply Chain Risk Management: Outlining an Agenda for Future Research
I just stumbled upon one of the articles I already read about a year ago, shortly after I started my research. Beside indication of a future research agenda (see as well here), Jüttner et al. (2003) also explain some fundamental concepts of supply chain risk management.

Your Infrastructure will kill you
Chaos Communication Congress
I was looking for more general insights into the topic on why systems fail. I stumbled on a talk of Eleanor Saitta from last years Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin. There is a recording of the talk here and the slides for the talk can be obtained here.

On The Quantitative Definition of Risk
What is risk anyway?
I read this paper already some time ago. It is very important to have a clear definition of the terms used in research. But from my previous experience I know that also in business a clear understanding of the different aspects of risks is important to stay consistent.
Supply Chain Risk Management is one way to look at risks within a company (and beyond). But there are broader and more narrow disciplines as well, with Business Continuity on the one end and Supply Chain Crisis Management on the other.
Even though supply chain risk has been analyzed in the literature for some time (eg. the Newsvendor / Newsboy problem, with the only uncertainty being demand). Nevertheless there are still many gaps (or opportunities) within this field.
In 2007 Khan and Burnes created a research agenda for the future and most of the topics covered still can be viewed as open.
The authors identify two major shortcomings of the current literature.
1) Locate itself within the wider literature on the theory of risk and the practice of risk management
The journals with relevant articles for Supply Chain Risk Management can be very diverse. First one would think about which fields and respective journals are relevant and where can one expect to find articles concerning supply chain risks?
