Supply Chain Risk and Resilience for Public Healthcare - levels 2 & 3

Connecting supply chain fundamentals with the increasing trend of global volatility, uncertainty, complexity and risk.


Surveys and studies have concluded that, for a variety of reasons, supply chain risk is increasing globally and that supply chain resilience is increasingly a competitive differentiator. The financial impact of supply chain disruptions can be devastating and are often not understood until it is too late. Supply chain strategies driven primarily by cost management and delivery improvements are no longer comprehensive enough to ensure competitive success. Unfortunately, showing a hard ROI for risk management initiatives is a difficult sell.
This new course provides knowledge and tools to guide you through understanding the choices available to your organization to manage supply chain risk and enhance the resiliency required for long term sustainability.
Structured in three levels, Level 1 will review Supply Chain Management fundamentals, industry trends, the impact of uncertainty, complexity, and risk and the identification of supply chain risks. In Levels 2 and 3, toolsets will be developed and case studies offered that delve into the impact of risk on various aspects of your organization. Upon completion of the three levels, you will earn the Supply Chain Risk and Resiliency Certificate.
