Abstract: This study sheds light on firm resilience in the face of disruptions. A number of resilience capabilities are proposed as factors that influence firm resilience. Data collected from an emerging economy during a period of severe power supply disruptions were used to test the proposed hypotheses. The findings contribute to our understanding of how proactive risk management mediates the influence of disruption orientation and investment in risk-averting infrastructure on firm resilience. The study shows that the ability of a firm to reconfigure its resources enables the firm to become more resilient. Disruption impact does not moderate this relationship.
