Supply Chain Resilience in times of COVID-19

The goal of this research project is to show how resilient are supply chains against the supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19.
This research project has 2 parts. The first part is this survey, sent out now when most supply chains are in the middle of the disruption caused by COVID-19. We send out the second survey in Autumn 2020, when hopefully most of the supply chains are already recovered from the supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19.

This research project is jointly carried out by researchers from the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Logistikum Steyr (Austria) and Copenhagen Business School (Denmark).

Supply Chain Resilience is defined as the ability of a company to survive, adapt and grow in the face of turbulent changes caused by disruptions. Supply chain resilience has emerged as one of the most important drivers of organizational success. In this research project we strive to understand the capabilities that enable resilience in supply chains. Turbulent change is characterized by a dynamic and unpredictable business environment. In this research we focus on the current supply chain situation caused by COVID-19.

The success of this research project depends on your support!

The responses will remain anonymous and confidential. The data is only made available to researchers involved in this project. Results will be published in aggregated form only. No individually identifiable information will be disclosed.

The estimated survey duration is 21 minutes. At the end of the survey you will have the option to provide your email to obtain a copy of the findings from this research.
