Developing and Implementing Strategy for Managing Risks in the Supply Chain

The past three years have seen a number of man-made and natural disasters bring risk management demands to the forefront of executives and board directors. Fat-tail risks that have a low probability, but a very high impact to the organisation, such as the Japanese tsunami, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill or the Eurozone liquidity crisis, have been front and centre, creating a renewed interest in enterprise risk management (ERM) practices.
