Every organization, whether for profit or not for profit, has to manage resources effectively due to the ever-changing business dynamics and environmental risks. The role of resilience in operations management becomes crucial when it comes to the effective and efficient use of resources and their transformation into the desired goods and services. In this competitive world, businesses are competing in terms of products or the service they provide and how they manage the operations and supply chain. On the other side, businesses are also worried about the environment while managing product or service life cycle throughout the supply chain. Therefore, the 26th Annual SOM conference (SOM 2023) focuses on sustainable and resilient operations to help profit and non-profit organizations improve customer service and reduce associated costs and waste. SOM 2023 provides a knowledge-sharing platform and encourages researchers and industry practitioners to discuss and share their ideas, knowledge, and thoughts, which will help the business become sustainable and resilient.
