Supply chain risk management is a critical capability for every industry leader. APICS 2017 presenter Gregory Schlegel, CPIM, CSP, Jonah will explore essential knowledge for mitigating and managing uncertainty, complexity, and risk across the entire global value chain. In particular, attendees will gain proven strategies for alleviating supply chain uncertainty via the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process. The four key areas to be highlighted include profiling the new supply chain normal; supply chain risk management basics; the stages of S&OP maturity; and working with all stakeholders to anticipate, react and orchestrate a successful risk-management plan.
