Study 3 applies attribution theory to investigate the link between disruption characteristics (severity and controllability), blame, and supply base redesign in the aftermath of a disruption. Using a vignette-based behavioural experiment, the study finds that severity does not have a significant effect on blame, whereas, controllability is positively related to people's attribution of blame. Subsequently, the study applies a cross-sectional survey to examine the impact of blame on redesign decisions in real-life organisational settings. The findings show that attribution of blame only leads to redesign decisions when the level of trust in the supplier is low.
