Single Point of Failure: The 10 essential Laws of Supply Chain Risk Management_provides valuable insights into how supply chain risk management affects everyone and lists solutions you can use. Gary Lynch uses analogies and dozens of real-company case histories to describe the risk parasite that infects all supply chains and reveals methods, based on his experience, to neutralize that parasite. He addresses the questions: What are these "single point of failures" and how could it impact my organization? How do I recognize whether or not I am exposed and what the potential for brand, financial, strategic, and compliance impact might be? Who should be responsible for understanding and managing supply chain risk? When and where am I most exposed? How much time, resource, management attention, and capital should I allocate to the problem? Why? What’s my return? How do I measure success or failure of my program? This book is both technically powerful and effectively realistic, based on today's complex global economy
