Review

Global supply chains can be maddeningly complex. Stuart Rosenberg, an accomplished expert in the field, discusses how to plan for and manage the potentially catastrophic risks inherent in convoluted delivery systems. Any break in your supply chain carries substantial risk, particularly if your links are brittle. Breaks can occur as a result of various disasters – large or small, man-made or natural. The clear danger in supply chain failure is that if manufacturers can’t get their materials and customers can’t get their products, the firms in question won’t make money and may fail. Rosenberg suggests that the more you plan for serious risk, the better you’ll be able to handle potentially catastrophic circumstances. Rosenberg’s information and insights will be useful to global supply chain professionals, students who hope one day to work in this vital field, and affected manufacturers, shippers, wholesalers and retailers.

Supply Chains and Risk

Increasing global competition puts intense and growing pressure on companies. To stay competitive, international supply chain expert Stuart Rosenberg explains, firms must constantly improve their production capabilities, the quality of their products and services, and the efficiency of their delivery systems – all while controlling costs. Ultimately, profits depend on efficiently matching supply and demand, and that rests on vitally important global supply chain planning and management. Supply chain professionals and practitioners must understand the intricacies of supply chain management and operations, as well as how to align “demand planning,” risk management and logistics networks. Rosenberg adds greatly to that understanding.
