Supply Chain Risk

How do we do it?

This assessment addresses the most common risks across supply chains due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The risks are grouped into 3 major categories, and are not meant to be exhaustive nor detailed to match the daily operational risks of all possible enterprises. Rather this is a starting point for the most likely risks based on today’s market and industry knowledge.

In order to best respond to those risks, supply chains must be resilient – this means being able to adapt quickly when disruptions hit. But what are elements of resilience? How do leaders identify where their supply chains are sufficiently resilient or not? Here we group the key 6 elements of resilience, and show levels from low to high. These 6 are not exclusive or exhaustive, indeed there are more elements (for example foreign currency exchange) that may be important for your specific business. These are the major elements common across many different enterprises and business models.
