Supplier Risk and Relationship Management
Supplier Risk is predominant in a global sourcing context. Understanding supplier definitions for compliance and congruence with US terminology is foundational for risk management. Important to segment the supply chain to understand the different levels of risk. Supplier score carding at a regular cadence with Key Risk Indicators will determine the movement in risk factors. A hierarchy of supply chain risks and relationship management to mitigate the known and unknown risks can be a subjective science but “presence” makes a difference. Protectionism versus punitive measures lends to a paradigm shift in the risk and relationship equation.
