Description: The largest supply chain risk is hidden in unexpected places: Are you ready for the Next Disruption?”

We will cover four key areas:

  • Risks are hidden in unexpected places
  • Assumptions about risks being associated with certain geographies or certain sized suppliers often prove to be wrong
  • A supply chain can be highly resilient and highly unaffordable so the pinpointing the right places to invest in capacity, flexibility, or inventory positioning is critical
  • A data analytics approach that combines time-to-survive and time-to-recover concepts allows companies to stress test their supply chain and is critical for making the right risk mitigation decisions
