Webinar Series: Maximizing Supply Chain Risk Preparedness

Today’s risk environment is growing more perilous and costly. Organizations need to strive towards achieving resilience and greater value by embedding strategic risk capabilities. As we kick-off a new year, 2021 is a good time to review your organization’s risk preparedness. Our webinar series provides expert guidance on three approaches you can take: 

1. How to Redesign Your Supply Chains for Better Risk Preparedness



For decades, supply chains have expanded and have become increasingly global. The COVID-19 pandemic was a wake-up call for many organizations. Rethinking their strategies and better understanding their supply chain’s vulnerabilities is now high on the agenda for executives, procurement, and supply chain professionals.

Learn in our webinar:

  • Why your supply chain needs a redesign
  • What role re-shoring vs. near-shoring plays, and how transportation is becoming a weak link
  • How to achieve a new sourcing paradigm and why the risk factor is critical for sourcing, SRM and supply chain design
  • Business model and best-practice examples

2. The Importance of Agility for Better Risk Preparedness



Agility in the supply chain is described as being able to respond quickly to sudden and unexpected changes in markets. This includes the ability to consistently align products, strategies and processes of the organization to meet customer needs. In an increasingly complex environment, both “agility” and “resilience” are often discussed.

Learn in this webinar:

  • How to connect agility and resilience
  • How to implement agility in your organization and find the right balance between automation and human oversight
  • How to accept and control the cost of risk to drive resilience and protect business
  • How leading companies implement agility and resilience in their organizations

3. Your Digital Journey to Better Risk Preparedness



Businesses today focus on digitalization more than ever. However, there is no off-the-shelf solution that can be bought and implemented into your business. Finding the right strategy and ensuring what brings true value and return on investment for your organization is often a challenge.

Learn in this webinar:

  • Where and how to implement digital transformation in your supply chain
  • How to set priorities in your digital transformation and how to drive your efforts to scale up
  • Which technologies are just hype and which ones are game-changing
  • How to integrate the risk factor in your digital journey and how to collaborate with your business partners for better E2E visibility
