Supply risk involves adverse and unexpected changes to any elements of a supply chain ecosystem, and a multitude of risks threaten the operation of supply chains at national and global levels.

You will then learn how SCRM can reduce supply chain vulnerability by identifying and managing risks within the supply chain and external to it. It also lists the six strategies to reduce overall risk exposure. The course gives examples of resource uncertainties, characteristics of Wicked problems, and describes the elements of a cyber-attack.
