Abstract

The recent health crisis has challenged the resilience of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), leading to the adoption of organizational flexibility practices and cost-effective digital technologies to navigate through constraints imposed by restrictions and lockdowns. Applying insights from the Practice-based view and evolutionary theory, we demonstrated that these novel practices contribute to the evolution of supply chain resilience, enhancing its performance. Furthermore, aligning with a transformative supply chain mindset, our study emphasized the importance of incorporating organizational well-being into the ongoing evolution of supply chain resilience. Employing a survey as the research strategy, we focused on SMEs as the unit of analysis in the UK and France, allowing the comparison of the proposed resiliency framework between the two countries.
