Supply Chain Risk Assessment

Jim Johnstone

How do you assess and measure risk in your supply chain?  ISO 9001/2017 certification requires us to assess and mitigate risk in our businesses, including the supply chain.

In this webinar you will  learn how to define and assess the eight common types of risk in every supply chain and where you can easily get the data you need to assess those  risks. Then you will be shown how to systematically organize your risk assessment so you can prioritize your risk reduction activities. Attendees will then share what has worked for them in reducing risk in their own supply chains.
