Feb 13, 2015    Heiko Schwarz


For everyone involved in implementing supply chain risk management (SCRM) riskmethods has put together a “Recipe for Successful Supply Chain Risk Management” – using only the best ingredients ;)

We put that all together in a whitepaper which will be published end of February. To all our blog readers we will exclusively give some insights on our finest ingredients….


Our recipe is intended to provide companies with a checklist containing all ingredients that are important for setting up professional, successful supply chain risk management. In this way, time-consuming delays and costly errors can be avoided. The individual chapters contain detailed descriptions on the following ingredients for a comprehensive supply chain risk management process, and how to drive highest organizational adoption:

  • Definition of the scope
  • Definition of risks to be monitored (“Risk Inventory”)
  • Supply chain transparency
  • Risk identification
  • Impact assessment
  • Action plan management for minimizing risks
  • Integration into further procurement processes

As the approach described in this white paper is a generic one, specifics must be adapted to the relevant sector and company size in order to adapt a generic concept accordingly . You can find a detailed description of benefits and the return on investment of supply chain risk management in the “ROI of Supply Chain Risk Management” study.
As is the case with any dish: Adjust the ingredients according to your personal (company-specific) liking! 

Watch out for our ingredients – And enjoy your meal :)
