Sustainable Partner Selection in Collaborative Networked Organisations
Badulescu Yvonne, Soltan Ezzeddine, Hameri Ari-Pekka, Cheikhrouhou Naoufel 16SNF/Programs/100018_176349, Structured Abstract Purpose: Collaborative Networked Organisations (CNO) are a means of ensuring longevity and business continuity in the face of a global crisis such as COVID-19. This paper presents a multicriteria decision making method for sustainable partner selection based on the three sustainability pillars and Risk. Design/methodology/approach: A combined Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process with Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) approach to evaluate and rank potential partners based on known conditions and predicted conditions at a future time based on uncertainty to support sustainable partner selection. Findings: It is integral to include Risk criteria as an addition to the three Sustainability pillars: economic, environmental, and social, to build a robust and sustainable CNO. One must combine the AHP and Fuzzy-AHP weightings to ensure the most appropriate sustainable partner selection for the current as well as predicted future period. Originality: The paper presents a novel approach to the partner selection process for a sustainable CNO under current known conditions and future uncertain conditions, highlighting the risk of a force majeure occurring such as COVID. Research implications: The approach proposed in the paper is intended to support existing CNO, as well as individual firms wanting to create a CNO, to build a more robust and sustainable partner selection process in the context of a force majeure such as COVID-19..
