Supply Chain Resilience Course

Learn how to best manage the resilience of your supply chain.

Join our dedicated course and learn the key principles and best practices of supply chain resilience.

Why take a Supply Chain resilience course?

Supply chains are one of the most challenging aspects of an organization to manage. They are vulnerable to a wide variety of threats (e.g. cyber-attacks, terrorism, cargo theft), they can be located abroad, potentially subject to different legislations, and it is incredibly hard to have full visibility over them. Disruptions are therefore highly frequent and costly, with losses reaching tens of billions of dollars in the most extreme cases.

Thus, organizations need to be aware of the levels of vulnerabilities concerning their suppliers and prepare accordingly, through a joint effort of different functions, such as risk, business continuity, IT and health & safety. Specifically, business continuity management (BCM) systems have been proven to be a decisive factor when building supply chain resilience, increasing visibility over suppliers, top management commitment and reducing the amount of disruptions.

Thus, using a BCM approach, this course will show participants how to:

  • Perform a risk assessment of their supply chain;
  • Identify the critical suppliers for their organization;
  • Mitigate disruptions;
  • Reduce losses and increase efficiency to their supply chain.

What can you do after this course?​

The final goal of this course will be to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and technical skills to deploy a Supply Chain Resilience Strategy, also through the use of real-life case studies and exercises.
