I already reviewed one of the articles of Zsidisin (Perception of Supply Risk). Today I had a look at an article about how the purchasing organization is involved in the supply chain risk management activities.

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.
In the following I summarize the major points of the article “Responsive supply chain: A competitive strategy in a networked economy” by Gunasekaran, Lai and Cheng (2008).
Responsive Supply Chain (RSC)
The authors define a RSC to contain both aspects of Agile Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management. They argue, that both complement each other in the objective to improve organizational competitiveness.
Today I start an irregular series on doctoral dissertations on Supply Chain Risk Management. An immense effort and dedication is spent on these works only to find the results hidden in libraries. So the goal is raise interest in their research.
