Arrow Down November's Professional Development Meeting (PDM)

November 16, 2022 (Virtual)

Please join us for our upcoming meeting, 

"Supply Chain Risk & Resilience: WHAT is it, WHY is it Important & HOW do we get started?"

Presented by:
Gregory L Schlegel CPIM, CSP, Jonah

(Click for more information)

Join Greg for a lively discussion about our 12-year passion, Supply Chain Risk & Resilience. First, we’ll get you grounded on a few key terms and definitions. We’ll profile our 5-Stage SCR&R Maturity Model and then run an online, Group Exercise covering Risk Appetite, which will include polling questions.

Next, we’ll talk about the VUCA world we operate in today and share a few salient statistics on the financial impacts of supply chain disruptions. We’ll close this section with the Bullwhip Effect and what we’ve coined----“The W-like Recovery.” We’ll close our discussion sharing a few helpful hints in terms of how to get started.

We’ll profile a new, FREE, online Assessment Tool and a few approaches a company can take, initially, to become better prepared and more responsive to supply chain risk events then their nearest competitor. See you there. .
