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.
