Supply chain risk management strengthens supply chains to deal with the turbulence of dynamic changes over time by supporting them in identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks. Because the supply chain is a network of several stakeholders, its members often accentuate their benefit more than the system. In the asymmetric relationship, the intention of dominant partners often raises uncertainty that impacts dependent partners' strategy. Hence, research in investigating how dependent partner responds to the risk of asymmetric relationships is essential. This work argues with the previous result that large-scale enterprises focusing on preventive action in dealing with risk. In asymmetric relationships, because dependent partners have limitations in persuading the dominant ones, large-scale enterprise merely act in reactive approaches. Starting with this research, the opportunity for future case study research that enlarges the number of case samples and explores the level of implemented strategy impact on performance is essential.
