Supply chain risk is increasing globally and that supply chain resilience is increasingly a competitive differentiator. The financial impact of supply chain disruptions can be devastating and are often not understood until it is too late. Supply chain strategies driven primarily by cost management and delivery improvements are no longer comprehensive enough to ensure competitive success. Unfortunately, showing a hard ROI for risk management initiatives is a difficult sell.
This course provides knowledge and tools to guide you through understanding the choices available to your organisation to manage SC risk. Structured in three levels, Level 1 is intended to set the foundation for Supply Chain Risk and Resilience (SCR&R) Body of Knowledge and provides a level of appreciation regarding the elements of basic supply chain management (SCM).
Supply chain risk is increasing globally as supply chains expand to all corners of the earth.
