Abstract: Given the increasing frequency and impact of natural disaster on supply chains it is timely to have a fresh look at the mitigation capability concepts e.g., resilience and risk management. This talk explores if there is a need for dynamic capability for mitigating against natural disaster. Based on thematic analysis of 30 interviews of academics, experts and practitioners, the talk identifies 17 first-order themes related to three theoretical dynamic mitigation capabilities: sensing, seizing, transforming/ reconfiguring. These capabilities serve as organizational routines that protect the supply chain against natural disaster, as well as the capabilities to learn and improve the routines.

This talk is part of the DIAL seminars series.
