Handbook of Management Scales/Risk management infrastructure
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).

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.
