Supply Chain Risk Management PetroTech

Course details

Effective supply chain professionals need to be able to ensure their organisations become industry pace setters, by better managing their supply chains to achieve reduced costs, whilst at the same time, improving service levels.

However, global trade has brought about proportionally high levels of risk and uncertainty. In turn, this uncertainty creates a risk spiral that is accompanied by increased cost and reduced levels of service. Risk is found in all supply chains, but with analysis, preparation and action, these risks can be avoided, managed or deflected.

Smart organisations must therefore find ways to manage risk, uncertainty and variability and at the same time, look to reduce cost and improve service.

This seminar shows how to apply useful tools and techniques to successfully manage this dilemma and paradox.
