Panel: The Path to Supply Chain Risk Management
How do we visualize the issues, remove barriers to implement change, and manage our risk?
First, identify what supply chain management is needed by identifying the risk in the supply chain. Next, make sure the team fully understands the concerns, and write out the desired outcome. Establishing a clear path of the expectation and having the end result in mind will facilitate guidance to determine what direction to go and next steps. Companies across the industry are using these steps to successfully navigate the road to compliance. Learn ways that your peers have used technology to identify risk and how it has led them to automate processes, manage exceptions in the supply chain, and improve supplier relationships.
