The procurement and supply chain function proactively manages a range of risks that stem from the supply chain such as market volatility, cultural and social differences, impact of globalisation, sustainability, fraud and corruption, currencies and commodities, contracts and relationships with suppliers. 

Current thinking in this area focuses less on avoiding risk and more on managing it to an organisation's benefit; therefore this module focuses on how leaders in procurement and supply can assess and mitigate the main performance risks that stem from the supply chain and that impact on the organisation or its customers. It also provides an understanding of the need to develop and implement appropriate risk appraisal and management strategies. 


    This two-day module aims to prepare participants to identify the sources of risk affecting the supply chain and develop risk management strategies to optimize the organisation's supply chain. The module is designed to develop participants' understanding of strategic supply chain risk appraisal and the skills needed to appropriately manage risk.
