Abstract / Description

Purpose:
The purpose of this study is to identify and prioritize capabilities and practices to ensure a resilient supply chain during an unexpected disruption. In addition, this study ranks maturity factors that influence the main capabilities identified.

Design/methodology/approach:
This paper is conducted in three stages. First, capabilities and practices are extracted through a literature review. Second, capabilities and practices are ranked using the Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP) method. Third, a Grey Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (G-TOPSIS) method is used to rank maturity factors influencing capabilities.

Findings:
The findings indicate that responsiveness, readiness, flexibility and adaptability are the most important capabilities for supply chain resilience. Also, commitment and communication are the highest maturity factors influencing resilience capabilities.

Research limitations/implications:
The findings provide a hierarchical vision of capabilities and practices for industries to increase resilience. Limitations of the paper are related to capabilities, practices and number of experts consulted.

Practical implications:
This paper highlights the importance of high maturity practices in resilience capability adoption. The findings of this study will encourage decisions-makers to increase maturity practices to build resilience against disruption.

Originality/value:
The paper reveals that developing powerful capabilities, good practices and a high level of maturity improve supply chain resilience.
