CSCMP continues to be a champion for bridging academic rigor and practical relevance. Where else can the global community of scholars convene with the supply chain community to be informed and influenced by those who make the seemingly impossible happen every day? The Journal of Business Logistics is the epitome of this melding of the minds. CSCMP and JBL have long been vital sources for good ideas, inspiration, and support for my research and teaching endeavors.

Disruptive-Techs and the (Real) Value Creation to Firms and Supply Chains in Today’s Industry: A Proactive Perspective
Global supply chains (SCs) are exposed to intertwined, simultaneous, and prolonged disruptions (ISPD) (Falcone et al., 2021; Queiroz et al., 2020) including but not limited to pandemic outbreaks, climate change, Brexit, financial crises, and war. These and other extreme events cause negative impacts in the short, middle, and long term and may call for the accelerated adoption of digital technologies (van Hoek, 2021). The interdependence of global SCs amplifies negative effects from one crisis to another, contributing to the long-term impact of disruptions. For instance, the onset of COVID-19 combined with Brexit expanded UK shortages in supermarkets products, labor, raw materials, etc. Using disruptive technologies (disruptive-techs) can play a decisive role in not only supporting the operations of the firms and their SCs (Dolgui & Ivanov, 2020), but also in value creation. In this view, it is best practice to take proactive actions (Knemeyer et al., 2009) in managing the firms' technology resources through the SCs. Bode et al. (2021) highlighted the prominence of proactive actions of managers to improve SC responsiveness in the wake of disruption, but it isn’t clear how managers can or are using disruptive-techs to support the operations of their firms and SCs, and, at the same time, add value (Richey et al., 2021). We thus call attention to the need for researchers to make tangible contributions to – what, why, where and how – disruptive-techs may or may not create value for the firms and SCs.
