Building Resilient Supply Chains for Effective Risk Management: For every business, supply chain resilience is a crucial consideration. It can give businesses a competitive edge and lower threats to shareholder value. In this lecture, professor Richard Wilding demonstrates how you may increase supply chain resilience by learning about internal risks, external sources of risk and disruption, and the interactions between the complexity triangle’s constituents. These factors all contribute to uncertainty. Additionally, he describes how to develop a supply chain strategy, create goods and services that support a resilient supply chain, and how flexibility and agility may aid in risk response and disruption minimization. Relationships, culture, openness, and risk management are all significant subjects that are explored. Richard examines international risk management standards, risk identification, analysis, and evaluation techniques, and risk monitoring and review techniques in the second half of the course.
