Salvo Global’s 3-day intensive Masterclass on “Proactive Supply Chain Risk Management” will allow delegates to understand and minimize the risk factors present throughout the entire supply chain – from the initial supplier to the ultimate customer based on key factoids, case study application and best-practice tools used in industry. Delegates will take away proven strategies to analyse and mitigate end-to-end supply chain risks to capture value, reduce vulnerability and ensure continuity for 2020 & beyond! Learning Objectives: Assess and position supply chain risk issues using an end-to-end perspective from the initial supplier through to the ultimate end customer. Leverage on the latest ICT developments to digitise your supply chain for improved information flow and collaborations, including how to make your supply chain more customer-centric. Negotiate with suppliers using the Supply Chain Risk Continuum to mitigate negative impacts of operational disturbance, tactical disruption and strategic uncertainty. Examine a risk analysis framework for identifying and managing risks relating to imports, which is also applicable to local sourcing. Develop and evaluate your supply base with the Transaction Cost-Based Framework (TCF) and the Supplier Risk Profile. Understand and manage the financial ramifications of risk including currency fluctuations, payment terms and supplier collusion. Implement Business Continuity Management (BCM) to deal with the trade-offs between cost, quality, lean practices and supply chain risk. Build strong competencies in Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) to reduce risk through strategic vendor development and sourcing strategies. Perform effective budgeting with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) models to minimise risk. Apply best practices in Inventory Management to address risk factors such as long lead time and variability of supply and demand
