From recurring episodes of great depression, oil crises, political crises, wars, debt crises, to the ongoing climate change, there is a constant pressure on businesses to cope with critical events. However, throughout history, crises have been pivotal in advancing businesses and societies. This contributed volume approaches crisis not simply as a source of problems, but also as a set of choices. It seeks to explore critical events as possible opportunities for sustainability, through process improvement, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Chapters reveal that times of crisis provide opportunities for new start-ups, creativity, resilience, organisational change, and revitalisation. This book also emphasises the importance of sustainability, driven either by the market or as a response to critical events. Within the wider attempt to explore avenues for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability at times of crisis, the book is loosely organised in three thematic sections: organisational responses to crisis; digitisation, and how technology facilitates or hinders sustainability under conditions of crisis; and SMEs, Family Firms (FF), Entrepreneurship, which explores how critical events offer opportunities for innovation.

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the supply chains of all sectors of business worldwide. The pandemic has made it evident that by managing supply chains in a traditional manner organizations will no longer be able to achieve profits and improve customer satisfaction. This calls for immediate structural changes in organizations, flexible organizational culture, and a sense of urgency to redefine strategies related to supply chains. The Handbook of Research on Supply Chain Resiliency, Efficiency, and Visibility in the Post-Pandemic Era explores diverse strategies for achieving capabilities related to supply chain resilience and seeks to expand the existing body of knowledge in this area. It develops models, frameworks, and theoretical concepts related to supply chain resilience to enhance efficiency and improve visibility of supply chains. Covering topics such as change management, production relocation, and supply chain risk, this book is an essential reference for business leaders, corporate executives, industry practitioners, researchers, academicians, educators, and students.
