The world of supply chain management and logistics (SCM&L) continues to shift following several major disruptions. Dr. Richey will discuss his recent research aimed at developing a strategic theory in the field of logistics and supply chain management. Specifically, the Responsiveness View focuses on the ability of a supply chain to adjust to opportunities and disruptions by examining four dimensions of business strategy: adaptability, flexibility, agility, and improvisation. Dr. Richey will demonstrate how generative artificial intelligence can play an important role in building out future supply chain strategies across each dimension. He will also detail opportunities for research publication in the Journal of Business Logistics.
