Abstract

Nowadays, organizations and supply chains have to deal with a number of disturbances. The pressures to grow revenues, to take advantage of new technologies, to reduce costs, and to improve working capital and streamline operational procedures, pushed many organizations to establish strategies which increase risk exposure. As a result, companies can loose the ability to act quickly and effectively in response to disturbances. In this paper, different disturbances are identified and the relationship with their potential sources is discussed. A proposal for the classification of disturbances is presented; it is considered as a required step to understand how to model for better organization performance in situations characterised by high levels of exposure to disturbances.
