Supply Chain Risk Management

Why Attend?

Supply Chain Managers, Procurement and Sourcing Professionals manage a significant element of an Organisation’s activities and spend with its suppliers, and can be incredibly influencial in the success of their Organisations.

In the modern day an Organisation’s competitive advantage will be determned by how it can maximise its relationship and diligently manage both its forwards and backwards facing supply chains. This is particularly true in a Global environment, whereby most industries are catching up fast and almost all are on a par in terms of similar manufactring capability and adaptation of best practices.

Added Value and competitive advantage are found here – but can also be lost here too – with devestating repurcussions.

The ability to effectively manage risk in a Supply Chain is an absolute must in the skill set of any current Supply Chain professional.

This 5 day program will equip and develop Procurement and Supply Chain professionals to be able to operate dilegently and effectively with their Supply base, mitigating any risks and maximising all opportunities to gain competitive advantage in their market place.


Who Should Attend?

Procurement, Purchasing and Supply Chain professionals at all levels of the organisation will benefit enormously from this interactive and immersive program.

Other colleagues from across the Organisation with a keen interest in Supply Chain risk management would also benefit from this program.
