Proactive Supply Chain Risk Management

Risk management within supply chains is one of the most significant challenges facing every organization since all organizations are usually members of at least one or more supply chains. As Western Africa undergoes fast growth and rapid economic development, the supply chain management function often suffers from risks such as lack of financial resources, currency risks, long lead times and delays, quality risks, and security risks. In view of these, it is no longer sufficient to merely react to supply chain disruptions. Instead, organizations need to adopt a proactive approach towards managing these risks in order to reap a competitive advantage through their supply chains.

Salvo Global’s intensive Masterclass on “Proactive Supply Chain Risk Management” will allow delegates to understand and minimize the risk factors present throughout the entire supply chain – from the initial supplier to the ultimate customer based on key factoids, case study application and best-practice tools used in the industry. Delegates will adopt proven strategies to analyze and mitigate end-to-end supply chain risks to capture value, reduce vulnerability and ensure continuity for 2020 & beyond!
