Supply Chain Risk assesses the various sources of external threats, including environmental, geopolitical, economic and technological. John Manners-Bell clearly describes the evolving risks to supply chains and how multinational corporations should be dealing with them at a strategic level. He examines the lack of supply visibility that puts businesses at risk and includes case studies of best practice, as well as examples of when and how things go wrong.
Covering global issues, trends and developments, case studies look at: the tsunami in Japan, floods in Thailand, volcanic ash clouds over Europe, counterfeit hi-tech goods in China, Hurricane Katrina and Cisco's suppliers going out of business due to the recession. Each case study describes a company’s supply chain and production/ sourcing strategy; a description of the catastrophic event which occurred; consequences to supply chain and management response; material losses incurred and resultant changes to company supply chain strategy.
With useful downloadable resources, Supply Chain Risk is an essential read for risk managers, supply chain managers, supply chain operators and anyone interested in risk management and its growing impact on the supply chain.

"Logistics expert John Manners-Bell ably provides an A-to-Z report – often hair-raising, never dull – on the hazards inherent in supply chains and how to manage or minimize them. getAbstract recommends his cautionary insights to supply chain managers, their bosses and their suppliers to aid risk planning and risk mitigation." (getAbstract Inc.)
"[E]xplains how multinational corporations should be dealing with evolving risks at a strategic level and cites recent examples of when things went wrong...This book assesses the external threats to the supply chain from the environmental to geopolitical, and economic to technological angles." (Supply Management)
"Over the past few decades, efforts to improve the bottom line have left some companies' supply chains more vulnerable to risk. As a result, today's managers must focus on making their supply chains more resilient. This book shows supply chain managers how to implement international risk awareness and response programs, and improve visibility to inventory and all supplier levels, to help minimize supply chain risk, and, in some cases, eliminate it altogether." (Jason McDowell Inbound Logistics)
"Fortunately, Supply Chain Risk does not focus on the elimination of risk so much as it outlines how to build resiliency. If we accept the premise that risk can not be avoided, but can be weighed, considered, and balanced as part of the overall corporate strategy, it becomes an opportunity for competitive advantage and differentiation. This book will assist procurement and supply chain professionals as they make that argument internally and then carry out the resulting plan." (Kelly McCarthy Barner Buyers Meeting Point)
