International Journal of Logistics Economics and Globalisation (IJLEG), Vol. 7, No. 1, 2018

Abstract: There is a growing challenge for the supply chain firms to address the uncertainties in a positive manner. Research on resilience and risk mitigation strategies have undersigned two effective capabilities: warning and recovery. However, the literatures on the development of these capabilities are yet to be developed. The current study adds to this nascent literature by exploring the role of organisation culture and lean production processes in generating warning and recovery capability. Survey instruments were developed based on the established sources (with necessary adaptation) and were utilised for the survey. 212 completed responses were obtained using the online survey and were analysed using the partial least squares. Findings showed that the organisation culture positively influences warning capability and recovery capability. Lean production processes although positively contributes for the development of the recovery capability; its influence on warning capability was not supported. Implications for the managers were also provided.
