The Supply Chain Management Institute’s 27th Annual Fall Forum, Managing Supply Chain Risk, will provide attendees with a wealth of information to better understand and manage supply chain risk within their organizations.
Effective supply chain management is a critical component of any company’s ability to meet consumer demand. Disruptions to the supply chain disturb the normal flow of goods and materials and, as a consequence, expose firms to operational and financial risks. Because a supply chain disruption can be potentially so harmful and costly, there has been a recent surge in interest – from academics and practitioners alike – in supply chain disruptions and related issues. Leading academic researchers, as well as practitioners, will share their research, lessons-learned, and other valuable insights, focusing on developing an overall understanding of risk and its relationship to supply chain performance; investigating the relationship between response time and disruption impact; assessing and prioritizing risks; and assessing supply chain resilience, as well as providing tools and methods for assisting with decision making and risk mitigation in the supply chain.
