With modern supply chains growing more complex, proactive supply chain risk management plays a significant role in an enterprise’s profitability, reputation, and often, survival. Focus on cost reduction coupled with practices like outsourcing, use of mega-suppliers, Lean and just-in-time inventory management have clear business justifications, but they have collectively increased risk. As the bottom-line impacts of operational risk continue to grow, organizations are shifting their approach and pushing risk to the top of the corporate leadership’s agenda.

Whether you have already invested in a supplier management platform or if you are still struggling to get a risk management initiative off the ground, advancements in technology make advancing or starting a program to manage supply chain risk is easier, and faster, than ever. Join our 3/15 webinar with Amy Fong, Associate Principal at The Hackett Group and Bill DeMartino, General Manager of North America at riskmethods for a tour of supply chain risk. Topics to be covered include:

  • An introduction to the rising importance of risk management and what it means for Supply Chain and Procurement.
  • Current state of capabilities and the challenges that need to be confronted.
  • Approaches to overcome the challenges and move organizations forward on their journey to be more agile and resilient.
