Purpose: Currently there is no universally accepted approach to supply chain risk management and assurance. To begin to shed more light on the practical operational challenges presented when considering supply chain risk mitigation through the sharing of information, this paper discusses the results of an empirical study conducted with manufacturing supply chain professionals. The study examines state-of-the-art challenges to managing risk in today’s supply chains by reporting on data collected in 2021.
Design/Methodology/Approach: To develop a rich picture of the challenges of information sharing in multi-tier supply chains, we adopted a qualitative research design. We conducted 14 interviews with supply chain professionals and ran two focus groups that were industry specific; one focused on the nuclear industry and the other on automotive.
Findings: The study identifies contemporary practical challenges to information sharing in supply chains; specifically challenges related to data quality and the acceptance of sub-optimal normative supply chain practices, which have consequences for supplier assurance fatigue and supply chain transparency.
Originality: Our topical and contemporary study shows how an acceptance of the normative practices of a supply chain can have an effect on the likelihood of supply chain disruption due to shortcomings in approaches to information sharing. The notion of the acceptance of the status quo in this context has received limited research attention, and hence offers an extension to current discourse on supply chain risk and resilience.
