This paper intends to present and discuss a review of actual supply chains management paradigms. A conceptual model to provide the necessary understanding of paradigms divergences and commitments is addressed, contributing to a more sustainable and competitive supply chain. A literature review related to lean, agile, resilient and green supply chain management paradigms is presented, identifying the attributes of each paradigm and their impact/consequence in the supply chain. A conceptual model exploring supply chain management characteristics and paradigm inter-relationship is discussed. The main objective is to identify the supply chain characteristics that must be managed to obtain: the necessary organizational agility; to speed-up the bridging between states that require more or less degree of resilience; to preserve the dynamic aspects of the lean paradigm and; to assure its harmonization with the ecologic and environmental aspects that production processes may attend.
