Learning Objectives

It's okay if your Supply Chain broke because of COVID-19. But it's not okay if you were surprised.

It is going to take strategy, collaboration, and likely investment to create a resilient supply chain. It takes active management to identify and weigh the risks.

Key Takeaways:

  • Each organization has their own level of risk tolerance, know what yours is

  • Collaborate with key stakeholders outside of the Supply Chain

  • Turn risk management from event management to process management
