Here's the abstract for the session:
Discover how leading companies measure supplier risk and anticipate potential supplier problems to ensure continuous, affordable supply. Our research shows how early warning gives companies a much broader range of options to deal with potential problems in a systematic way. In this session you will learn about:
* How top companies quantify supplier risk and rank supplier readiness
* Predictive approaches to spot the trouble signs early, before problems happen
* Assessing suppliers' business continuity preparedness
* The keys to "Sourcing in Times of Uncertainty"
These lessons are culled from our research projects, from interviews and surveys with hundreds of the best run companies in the world.
