Description

The third in the Supply Chain Management Strategy Series from GENEDGE Alliance, Risk Management. Risk is everywhere and it impacts companies large and small. It doesn't sleep and it often shows up uninvited and when least expected. This session helps businesses to identify triggers of risk events, the importance of developing a plan to mitigate them when they do occur, and how to establish monitoring metrics and activities so you may prepare for the inevitable. Participants will also learn how the financial impact of risk is determined and why a Risk Management Plan is an essential element to operational efficiency. At the end of the session, you will have a clear understanding of risk management, its financial implications and the necessity of a risk management plan.
