Supply chains are becoming ever more complex. But one broken link in the chain can cause major business disruption, cause significant financial and reputational damage, and can put consumers in harm’s way. This session will help you recognize and understand the various risks through multiple tiers of a supply chain.  It will explain what to consider when sourcing from small- and medium-sized enterprises or moving manufacturing overseas. Our experts will then turn to defining strategies to avoid getting burned by suppliers, including performing market and facility due diligence, risk-sensing tools and analytics, and contingency plans that help build resilient supply chains.
