Supply Chain Resilience Course

Coming soon....

Course description

This course is about understanding supply chains, how they are managed and how to add resilience measures to them, and therefore, the business. It is about how to engage with those responsible for procurement and their teams to embed business continuity and resilience into the business supply chain.

In the current climate of financial austerity, volatile markets and globalisation, supply chains are often under complex and global pressure. Suppliers may be located in areas of the world that suffer considerable threats from severe weather systems and many logistical problems.

Top Management often has a Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) whose mission is to add value to the business as part of the business plan. On this course you will learn how to offer the procurement team the comfort of knowing that the resilience measures you are proposing, are an investment in resilience and a value for money proposition for the business, through cost benefit analysis.

Students will learn the terminology used by procurement professionals and how to influence decisions on awarding contracts to more resilient suppliers to create resilient supply chains.

This course is based on the Business Continuity Institute's Good Practice Guidelines and reflects the current global thinking from ISO 22301 and ISO /TS 22317 and ISO /TS 22318.
