Supply Chain Risk Management  

The supply chain is by its very nature a complex activity which is therefore susceptible to risk and its associated impacts. This became evident when the supply chain came to grinding halt due to the unexpected COVID-19 pandemic. The supply chain risk management should therefore be a central part of the organisation's strategy. It is a process whereby the organisation will identify, record and then address the risks associated with their activities with the aim of driving out or controlling those risks to the overall benefit of organisational's effectiveness and efficiency. This will also incorporate issues of business continuity planning (BCP) in the event the organisation is exposed to these risks.


Participants will learn how to appraise a variety of tools and techniques to establish the level of risks in supply chains and recommend and apply ways of avoiding, mitigating or managing those risks.
