IN THIS SUMMARY

The increase in the number and frequency of natural and man-made catastrophes has forced multi-national corporations to focus on the security of their supply chains by evaluating risks. Reducing internal risks by outsourcing processes has exposed corporations to external risks to their supply chains. Their strategies to reduce labor and inventory costs over the past three decades have, in essence, externalized costs until a disaster occurs. In Supply Chain Risk, John Manners-Bell examines various forms of risk to supply chains and explores ways that businesses have improved the resilience of their supply chains in the face of random and indiscriminate external forces.
