Risk management infrastructure (alpha = 0.91)[edit | edit source]

Description[edit | edit source]

A new scale was developed to measure risk management infrastructure. A substantive validity test was used for scale purification.

Definition[edit | edit source]

Risk management infrastructure describes a firm’s structure of resources designed to manage risk in the supply chain (Blackhurst et al., 2011).

Items[edit | edit source]

  • We have a department to manage supply chain risks and disruptions. (0.78)
  • We have KPI and metrics to monitor supply chain risk. (0.94)
  • We have information systems in place to manage supply chain risks and disruptions. (0.96)

(1 = disagree strongly, 7 = agree strongly)

Comments[edit | edit source]

The three items might measure the construct in a formative rather than reflective way. The three items could be interpreted as yes–no questions, i.e. a 7-point scale might not be suitable here.
