The Supply Chain Resilience Program

Credential Earned: P.Log.

Specialization: Supply Chain Resilience

Building Resilient Global Supply Chains

In globally competitive markets, companies strive to deliver value to customers, by developing and managing unique supply chains that differentiate them from competitors, and by integrating end-to-end logistics processes from suppliers to customers to manage costs and increase net profits. This is the SCL business eco-system, aka SCL Value Web.

Supply chain risk is increasing globally. The financial impact of supply chain disruptions can be devastating and is often not understood until it is too late. Supply chain strategies driven primarily by cost management and delivery improvements are no longer comprehensive enough to ensure competitive success.

  • Do you understand the differences between robust and resilient supply chain strategies?
  • How do you identify and plan for internal risks in your company along complex global supply chains?
  • Do you know how to handle unexpected external risks? Disruptions? Catastrophes?
  • What are your company recovery plans?
  • Do your plans focus only on organizational and business issues or do they extend to the realities of social, economic, environmental and personal factors?

Supply Chain Resilience is increasingly a competitive differentiator. Supply Chain Resilience is the capability and capacity of a supply chain network collectively/holistically, and of individual participants in that network individually, to “bounce back” from the impact of a risk event, quickly, cost-effectively, and in line with the overall value proposition.
