Despite numerous supply-chain upheavals inflicted by disasters in the last decade — including the eruption of a volcano in Iceland, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, Thailand floods, and Hurricanes Maria and Harvey — most companies still found themselves unprepared for the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, following the outbreak in China, 70% of organizations were still in data collection and assessment mode, manually trying to identify which of their suppliers had a site in the specific locked-down regions of China. The disruption was significant and far reaching.
It’s no wonder the last 10 months have caused most companies to reassess their supply chain risk management programs, specifically the importance of mapping their supplier networks. Consider this: In a recent survey of 600 procurement professionals by Supply Chain Quarterly, 73% are planning large-scale changes and half say the peak impact of Covid-19 will be within the next six months.
Ask yourself: do you know where all your high-spend suppliers are? What about your high-spend suppliers’ suppliers?
