Supply Chain Risk Management is a practical learning resource assessing the various sources of external threat to the supply chain, such as natural disasters, economic risk, terrorism and piracy. It presents a robust set of strategies which can minimize and mitigate supply chain risk.
Supply Chain Risk Management, 2nd edition, is a learning tool for academic and professional courses. It includes a strong set of best practice case studies. Each case documents the company's supply chain or production strategy and outlines the catastrophic event which occurred. John Manners-Bell analyses the supply chain consequences, material losses, management response, and the resultant changes to company's supply chain strategy. There is also academic pedagogy such as summary checklists and discussion questions.
Supply Chain Risk Management includes a brand new chapter on cyber threats to supply chains. There are invaluable summary checklists and discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
[E]xplains how multinational corporations should be dealing with evolving risks at a strategic level and cites recent examples of when things went wrong...This book assesses the external threats to the supply chain from the environmental to geopolitical, and economic to technological angles.
Over the past few decades, efforts to improve the bottom line have left some companies' supply chains more vulnerable to risk. As a result, today's managers must focus on making their supply chains more resilient. This book shows supply chain managers how to implement international risk awareness and response programs, and improve visibility to inventory and all supplier levels, to help minimize supply chain risk, and, in some cases, eliminate it altogether.

Logistics expert John Manners-Bell ably provides an A-to-Z report - often hair-raising, never dull - on the hazards inherent in supply chains and how to manage or minimize them. getAbstract recommends his cautionary insights to supply chain managers, their bosses and their suppliers to aid risk planning and risk mitigation.
I recently read this excellent book which is very relevant to today's global supply chains. The publication included some interesting case studies, was very easy to read and a pleasant change from some of the more theoretical publications relating to logistics and supply chain management.

Fortunately, Supply Chain Risk does not focus on the elimination of risk so much as it outlines how to build resiliency. If we accept the premise that risk can not be avoided, but can be weighed, considered, and balanced as part of the overall corporate strategy, it becomes an opportunity for competitive advantage and differentiation. This book will assist procurement and supply chain professionals as they make that argument internally and then carry out the resulting plan.
