dc.description.abstractPurpose: This paper aims at investigating the reasons for the complex and long lead time from global suppliers that causes inventory shortages. It focuses on supply chain risk management in global sourcing. This study has revealed all the specific risks of a global sourcing project and has provided some solutions for risk management: three-step risk management, safety stock, data sharing and driving supplier performance. Design/methodology/approach: A qualitative study is conducted to propose concrete recommendations on three topics: risk management, safety stock and information sharing. A semistructured survey-guided interview was used to collect related data, and the answers were assessed using syntactic, lexical, thematical and NVivo software analysis. Findings: This study has revealed all the specific risks of a global sourcing project and has provided some solutions for risk management: three-step risk management, safety stock, data sharing and driving supplier performance. Originality/value: Through research work, we have noticed that the world of the Supply Chain is constantly evolving and that it is becoming more and more complex. Through these interviews, we have noticed that the role of purchasing is changing differently in each sector.
