In addition, the impact of supply chain agility on firm performance was analyzed. For this purpose, the data was collected from 115 companies among Turkey's top 1000 exporters with survey technique.  Initially, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis and reliability analysis were conducted to test the construction validity and reliability of the scales used. To test the research hypotheses, the data obtained from 115 companies were analyzed by the structural equation model. As a result of the analyzes, it was found that the use of strategic resource significantly affected the supply chain agility and firm performance. Supply chain agility was also found to have a significant effect on firm performance. The study also explored the role of supply chain agility as a mediator in the impact of strategic resource utilization on firm performance. As a result of the mediation test, it was found that supply chain agility has a partial mediation role.
