How Supplier Risk Management Professionals Can Help You
Supplier risk management is the evolving process of identifying, assessing, and controlling threats to a company's capital and earnings that are caused by interruptions in the company's supply chain. Some interruptions include bankruptcy data breach, closing operations, or getting acquired. Companies with supplier risks should have strategies in place to reduce supply chain risks and interruptions whenever possible. Some strategies include onboarding, which builds a relationship between the company and the supplier, and cultivating strategic supplier relationships for the long term. Another strategy is to establish control across the extended enterprise by creating integrated supplier networks and extending performance management benchmarks to second and third tier suppliers.
The speed with which suppliers can move from stability to shutting down operations can be startling, which means supplier risk management is critical.
