The pandemic has exposed supply chain risks and has highlighted the intersection of vulnerability and exposure to unforeseen events. As such, the need for a management infrastructure to steer a proactive response to these risks is increasingly a non negotiable measure. Such an infrastructure requires a dedicated team with the remit to identify, prioritise, and respond to vulnerabilities. As an organisation we are increasingly responding to the need to implement such structural changes to supply chains by developing contingency plans for disruptive events. Introducing resilience metrics into supply chain KPIs helps the whole organisation ensure supply chain design and execution decisions are made in a way that balances efficiency and vulnerability. In addition I provide support along clients digital transformation journeys across industries with early-phase diagnostics, business-case development, and road mapping, as well as undertake interventions in existing SCM transformation projects to unlock untapped value. Reach out and lets discuss how we can assist in strengthening your supply chain resilience by being proactive in understanding and mitigating potential & possible risks.
