Effective, sustainable supply chain networks are an integral part of any organization's success. However, in a global, rapidly evolving environment full of turbulence and uncertainty, supply chains are more vulnerable than ever.
Now in its second edition, "Supply Chain Risk Management" is essential reading for risk managers and supply chain managers or operators who want to know about the growing impact of risk on supply chains, its management and how to mitigate its effects.
