Book Summary : Supply Chain Risk Management Vulnerability and Resilience in Logistics 2nd Ed.
Using jargon-free, accessible language, it identifies both the possible effects that risks can cause and how to plan for them. Starting with a definition of risk and supply chain management, it explains the current trends affecting the supply chain and provides detailed guidance on how to identify and analyse risks. It develops the principles involved, describing the various approaches to take and the steps needed to implement it. There is advice on how to create a resilient supply chain and, in the worst case scenario, how to plan for and respond to an extreme risk. Interspersed with real-life examples of how risks in the supply chain have affected organizations, readers can learn from the past and take steps to ensure they are not victims of future risk.
