This publication looks at the ways that supply chains can fail, either suddenly or gradually, over a period of time. It discusses the opportunities, and analyzes the threats, in order to gain an understanding of the strategic risk and management of supply chains.
A diverse supply chain can be a way to spread the level of risk, but it can also create potentially disruptive vulnerabilities. Getting the balance right will make for a successful supply chain and reduced risk.
Modern supply chain management is more than subcontracting. It can mean passing over a crucial part of the organization to a third party. It doesn’t only pass to outsiders the responsibility to deliver on time and in the expected quality. Increasingly organizations are replacing their own people, technology, intellectual assets and other crucial elements of their business to outsiders.
Crucial dependencies may involve the brand value, intellectual assets, people skills, tools and software.
