The present hostile economic conditions highlight the need for organizations to integrate various supply chain (SC) strategies to compete favourably. Lean and Agile are two critical strategies because the former ensures efficient use of resources while the latter involves matching supply with demand in unpredictable markets. This paper aims at advancing their understanding by conducting a review to unravel the state of art of Lean-Agile SC by examining the procedure of knowledge conceiving, transfer and development via the application pf "Systematic literature network analysis". The investigation enabled unravelling research directions/emerging themes thereby supporting researchers/newcomers to target specific theme to explore.
