Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council and Resilinc Collaborate on Seminal Supply Chain Risk Management Best-Practices Handbook
Milpitas, CA – April 1, 2015. The Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council, in collaboration with its principal sponsor Resilinc, announced today the publication of the Ultimate Guide to Supply Chain Resiliency Program Success. The goal of this 70-page reference is to provide supply chain risk management practitioners with concrete suggestions and guidance on how to create, roll-out, and institutionalize a global supply chain resiliency program.
The premise of this work is that there is an unserved need for information on how to build and manage a program that adequately address the crucial initial phase of making the business case, establishing strategic alignment, securing executive sponsorship, and integrate that information into a broader program deployment and operational plan. The result of this effort is a single comprehensive and easy to navigate tool for building a world-class supply chain resiliency program.
“This is the ultimate reference for supply chain resiliency practitioners and stakeholders,” said William Hurles, executive director of supply chain at General Motors. “It incorporates learnings and experiences from companies of all sizes and across many domains. Further, it is a comprehensive tool and catalog of best practices that can be immediately put to work in your journey to achieve risk management performance excellence.”
“This guide also attempts to untangle the confusing array of processes and labels for those processes such as risk assessment, risk analysis, risk evaluation,” said Wayne Caccamo, Resilinc chief marketing officer. “The tool refreshes and organizes program implementation and maturation best practices into a single comprehensive and easy-to-navigate reference and starting point for building a world-class supply chain resiliency program.”
