Abstract

Over the past decade practitioners and researchers have become increasingly focused on managing risks in extended supply chains. Whether these risks involve supply disruptions, financial liabilities for a supplier’s actions, or large market shifts; Grey Swan events, defined as unforeseen low-probability high-impact events, have the capacity to severely damage or create opportunities for a firm as well as its trading partners. Using two network parameters, density and centralization, and four examples we develop a typology to help SC managers identify grey swan events and then position a firm in the network for survival and possibly new opportunities.
