BCI - Supply Chain Resilience
Deepen your supply chain knowledge and implement robust resilience strategies
If you were asked to list all the possible threats to your supply chain, we might still be there tomorrow! Between the climate of financial austerity, volatile markets and globalization, supply chains are often under complex and global pressure. Suppliers may be located in areas of the world that suffer considerable threats from severe weather systems and many logistical problems.
Take this course to understand supply chains, how they are managed and how to add resilience measures to them and therefore, to the business. It is about how to engage with those responsible for procurement and their teams to embed Business Continuity and resilience into the business supply chain.
By achieving this course, you will:
• understand supply chain risks and interdependencies in the context of Business Continuity
• explore strategies and solutions in order to increase the value of your supply chain and to reduce its vulnerability
• learn how to coordinate your supply chain resilience with your top management and staff (reports, response, maintenance and exercises)
