Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the knowledge gaps in the extant literature on the role of
ambidexterity and coopetition in designing resilient fashion supply chains (RFSCs), and to develop a contextual
framework for effective decision-making to enable practitioners to enhance their supply chain resilience.

Design/methodology/approach – The study adopts a novel multi-evidence-based approach comprising
Denyer and Tranfield’s (2009) systematic literature review (SLR) with context, intervention, mechanism and
outcome (CIMO) logic, text mining and network analysis. The approach constitutes a rigorous methodology
that cross-validates results and ensures the reliability and validity of findings.

Findings – The authors identified key knowledge gaps in the literature and explored the main contribution
categories (e.g. conceptual understandings, operational impacts, use of theories and frameworks).
Subsequently, we developed a contextual framework of ambidextrous coopetition to design RFSCs. Finally,
an empirical research agenda is proposed with the five research directions to address the gap and take forward
the notion of ambidextrous coopetition and RFSCs.

Research limitations/implications – The multi-evidence-based approach is a structured and triangulated
SLR approach and thus lacks empirical study.

Practical implications – This research proposes a contextual framework of ambidextrous coopetition that
can be used by fashion companies to embed resilience into their structures and operations. This research also
presents an agenda for the future empirical research.

Originality/value – This paper contributes by providing a combinatory synthesis on the role of
ambidexterity and coopetition in designing RFSCs. This paper introduces a novel methodological triangulation
for improving the quality and validity of SLRs. It identifies significant knowledge gaps and defines directions
for future research.
