Abstract: This dissertation addresses research questions revolving around performance implications of individual professionals in supply chains – thereby considering both personal outcomes and outcomes related to their immediate business environments. Literature from other fields of study indicates significant, yet varying impacts of personality and individuals’ characteristics on overall job performance (e.g., Barrick & Mount, 1991; Hurtz & Donovan, 2000; Rothmann & Coetzer, 2003) and on personal career success (e.g., Seibert & Kraimer, 2001; Spurk & Abele, 2011). However, apart from very few exceptions (e.g., Strohhecker & Größler, 2013), this topic received relatively scant attention in supply chain management research. We want to investigate how personal traits and characteristics have an influence for the individuals themselves on the one hand, but on the other hand, also on their immediate business environments. In brief, the first research question scrutinizes the impact of individuals’ traits and factors on their personal career success when they act in a complex supply chain environment. The second research question focuses on personal work experience and investigates whether this experience affects the disruption susceptibility and resilience capabilities of their immediate business environment. Finally, the third research question sheds light on how personality traits of individual decision-makers influence resilience capabilities of their immediate business environment.
