WEBINAR: Supply Chain Risk-Mitigate, Leverage, Use, Create, Manage
Supply chains are becoming ever more complex, particularly with the increase in outsourcing and the advancement of multi-tiered global supply networks. More and more organizations are now faced with direct and continuously evolving operational and legislative risks as a result of market disruption or malpractice in their supply chains.
Supply chain risk management is the implementation of strategies to manage every day and exceptional risks along the supply chain, underpinned by continuous risk assessment with the objective of reducing vulnerability and ensuring continuity.
