Lunch seminar Disaster Resilience: Supply chain resilience and the role of teams in dealing with disruptions

When:Th 31-03-2022 12:00 - 13:00
Where:Board room Sociology, Bouman building, Grote Rozenstraat 27; B-0128 AND via live stream

On Thursday 31 March 2022 we organize a hybrid seminar together with the Disaster Resilience theme entitled: 'Supply chain resilience and the role of teams in dealing with disruptions'.

Prof. Dirk Pieter van Donk will talk about supply chain management and resilience on small and recurring disruptions.

Please note! You are welcome to attend this seminar on site in the Bouman Building, room B-0128 or you can sign up for the live stream via the 'sign up button'.

The seminar will shortly explain some basic notions on supply chain (SC) management, and supply chain resilience, explaining some of the topical areas investigated in that context and different approaches chosen in terms of empirical approach. Next, we will focus on research that specifically considers collaboration in and between (cross-functional) teams in SCs that are confronted with adverse events and try to limit their effect on the performance of the organizations they work in. The idea is to sketch some of the context, approaches and results of two interdisciplinary studies that respectively (1) use data from a railway organization and (2) students and managers that acted in a realistic business simulation. As in the SC literature (as in other fields) the effects of and reaction to large disasters have been investigated mostly, our work will specifically address smaller and more recurring disruptions.
