Course Overview

The financial impact of supply chain disruption can be devastating but is often only understood once it’s too late. Supply Chain strategies driven primarily by cost management and delivery improvements must be more comprehensive. The time has come to make supply chain risk assessments part of the supply chain planning process. It is estimated that a publicly held organisation that experiences a moderate or higher risk event can expect anywhere between a 7% – 10% reduction in shareholder value. More sinisterly, many organisations that experience a major risk event may themselves run the risk of being out of business within three years of the event occurring.

Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) is an evolving discipline and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Becoming a risk management leader demand mastering 4 stages of SCRM excellence: visibility, predictability, resiliency, and sustainability. This 5-day interactive Managing Supply Chain Risk training course aims to provide the participants with an awareness and all-around understanding of the myriad types and severity of business risks that can impact the health and well-being (fiscally and legally) of the supply chain function within the organisation. Its further intention also is to provide the necessary strategy and tactics as to how to treat and manage identified risks.
