    Managing Supply Chain Disruption Webinar, 20th May 2015

    Start date: 20/05/2015
    Cost: Free Please register via link

    Are disruptive forces impacting your supply chain clearly known and assessed? Do you have critical suppliers that are creating unreasonable risk? Does your supply chain need to be restructured to minimise risk?

    Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a vital component of the overall strategy of a company. More and more we see and hear Supply Chains being discussed on mainstream media.  Often, breakdown in a supply chain is cited as the reason why a business has got into difficulties, and is now having to take drastic, unpleasant actions to recover.  Why do Supply Chains struggle?  It is suggested that they operate in a VUCA world:

    V – Volatile, variable
    U – Uncertain, unpredictable, unstable
    C – Complex
    A – Ambiguous

    All of these, and more, are the culprits for disruption in our Supply Chains, yet we are still expected to deliver to plan, and generate profit for the company and stakeholders.

    Some of these disruptions are massive, clear and visible; a recovery project can be put in place, which may take time, but should be effective.

    Other disruptions are less obvious, somewhat invisible and it is likely that all stakeholders will not be aware of them.  These are the ones that we need to recognise and begin to address.

    The webinar will focus on:

    • The various forms that these disruptions take
    • Assess their impact upon the attendees’ Supply Chains
    • Suggested actions that can be taken to minimise the underlying causes and effects and start to improve Supply Chain performance.

    We hope that you can join us.
