210707 Supply Chain Risk and Disruption Management

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



External environment factors have forced supply chain leaders to increasingly take decisive actions, adapting effectively to new ways of working and enhancing their risk-management capabilities. In this subject, students learn how to deal with risks and disruptions in supply chains, especially in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment. Students identify potential risks and hazards that can arise in a supply chain in different contexts and how to manage these risks. They apply different models and strategies to manage various risks and disruptions arising from VUCA, develop a portfolio of skills to use in such scenarios, and develop a risk management framework that can be applied in the design of a resilient supply chain network.
