Supply Chain Risk Management

SCRM should be part of every company’s overall risk management plan. Just like suppliers can help make a company what it is, they can also bring it to its knees.

Operations are bleeding cash and frantically spending to get parts, all because of unavoidable weather and a supplier that you may not have even known was working for you. Maybe your circumstances aren’t this extreme, but do you know what your risks are? If so, what are you doing about it?
