Risk is at the very core of supply chain theory and is at the heart of every decision-making process. Supply chain risk is now becoming everyone's responsibility and over the last two years has become more important than ever, making its presence on the boardroom agenda of most big companies. Supply Chain Risk assesses the various sources of external threat to the supply chain and how multinational corporations should be dealing with them at a strategic level. In this book John Manners-Bell clearly shows how to implement risk strategies that minimize, even completely eliminate, supply chain risk, and outlines how to build resilient supply chains. Supply Chain Risk includes case studies of best practice and cites examples of when and how things go wrong. Each case study describes the company's supply chain strategy and production/sourcing strategy, outlines the catastrophic event which occurred, including the supply chain consequences and material losses, the management response, and resultant changes to company supply chain strategy. The book is accompanied by invaluable downloadable online resources, including a survey on companies' attitudes to supply chain risk. Supply Chain Risk has won the ACA-Bruel Special Mention prize for its contribution to the development of leading new concepts and methods in purchasing and supply chain. The prize is organised by the Association of Purchasing and Supply Chain (CESA) of HEC School of Management in Paris. Highly accessible with real practical application, Supply Chain Risk is for supply chain managers and anyone interfacing with the supply chain.
