Minimising risk exposure in supply chain

14 & 15 August 2017, Shanghai

Why should you attend?

Under a traditional risk management platform, risk managers examine the various supply chain components – procurement, manufacturing, real estate, logistics, legal and warehousing – and work to identify and evaluate the potential consequences of risk. While those actions play a vital role, a fully comprehensive supply chain risk management plan takes the process a step further by continually engaging senior management and the functional supply chain managers to become active participants in the overall supply chain management process.
In this way, risk managers can become integral players in the supply chain while creating multiple “operational risk managers” in the overall process. They can implement a variety of advanced risk analytic tools, such as value prioritisation and allocation, and gap analysis. Comparable to the “numetrics” used by many supply chain managers, risk managers can monitor process exposures by risk-scoring various owned, supplier, or customer geographic locations for natural catastrophe loss potential or using sophisticated modelling techniques to improve risk-adjusted decision making.
Furthermore, risk managers will have the ability to use such quantifiable risks associated with the supply chain to enhance risk-based scenario planning and analysis.

From a risk manager’s point of view, following are the three key objectives of an effective supply chain risk management strategy:
• Identifying and prioritising critical business elements
• Mapping the entire supply chain to show interdependencies
• Identifying potential failure points along the supply chain

Comprehensive supply chain risk management plays an important strategic role in the operation of a successful manufacturing business, protecting its most valuable assets while creating a unified and high performance risk mitigation model.
This course is designed for senior executives and all members of the leadership team who are involved in elements of the Integrated Business Management process, Business Continuity
Planning, Risk Management for their company. It is also an excellent opportunity for a team implementing this process to ensure that the senior management to whom the team reports
understands what is being done and how it benefits them.
