This is an age of uncertainty. The rise of cyber attacks and terrorism, the prevalence of extreme weather and natural disasters, and an increase in geopolitical tensions have put all businesses at risk. But companies juggling vast and complex global supply chains feel these risks most keenly. When even a small disruption can have a massive impact, it’s vital that companies understand the resilience of their supply chain. By preemptively gauing how long it will take the supply chain to recover after a major disruption, supply chain managers are able to adopt a faster, more strategic response should the worst happen. A wait-and-see attitude just won’t cut it—and could be the final nail in a company’s coffin if disaster strikes.
