This paper intends to determine whether the lean, agile, resilient and green paradigms are applied and combined in the actual environment of supply-chain management. A structured literature review on the state of the art was carried out, thus providing a comprehensive understanding on supply-chain management. A classification scheme of supply-chain paradigms was developed where five databases were used to find how these paradigms were being integrated. The research developed provided the confirmation that papers combining more than two paradigms were rare. To date, academicians have not studied the merging of these paradigms in supply-chain management at significant depth.
