Supply Chain Risk Management
Supply Chain Risk Management in the
Supply Chain Risk Management in the 21st Century
Held in Joint with Governors State University
Dictionary.com defines risk as, “exposure to the chance of
injury or loss; a hazard or dangerous chance”. Managing Supply Chain Risk is no
longer an initiative or a program - It is a way of life. A good organization
will generally have a few established supply chains, today’s world-class
organization will have competing supply chains serving various customers and
markets internally and externally.
In today’s environment, management teams are often confronted by a series of encounters on a daily basis.
From ongoing challenges such as overcoming operating difficulties, working with shifting financial markets
and currency fluctuations, and complying with changes in government regulations,
to reacting to unexpected upheavals and natural disasters anywhere and
everywhere in the world.
Therefore, given today’s dynamic and often volatile business framework, certain
questions should be asked: “How prepared are you and your management?”;
“Have you identified, and prepared a plan to mitigate your risk?”; “Do you know how to measure ‘Value at Risk’?”;
and “What is your tolerance for risk – What are your risk thresholds?”
During his presentation our speaker, Sunil Kulkarni, will put these questions, and other concerns,
into the context of overall Supply Chain Risk Management while discussing the similarities and differences
between Supply Chain Risk management and traditional financial management approaches.
