Supply chain risk management (SCRM) can provide companies with a long-term competitive advantage, particularly if it is integrated with enterprise risk management (ERM). Current SCRM research frameworks do not explicitly examine this integration, potentially hindering a deeper understanding of SCRM. This research uses survey data and follow-up interviews to suggest that ISO 31000:2009 provides a foundation for advancing future SCRM research, and to more successfully execute SCRM. It is also determined that ISO 31000:2009 encompasses existing SCRM frameworks, but is more exhaustive. It includes two critical steps generally omitted from SCRM frameworks: 1) developing a strategic context for SCRM, and 2) performance monitoring. Finally, it was found that firms recognize the importance of SCRM, but SCRM integration and skills are lacking.
