Mitigating Risk in the Supply-Chain
Tom Barlow, Channel Manager, EtQ, New York, NY, USA
Keywords: Risk, Supply Chain, Mitigation
The dynamic of business today is more complex than ever before. Globalization, product competition, and the expansion of the supplier network has driven companies into far more directions than ever before. In addition, product competition is at an all-time high, forcing companies to move faster to push product differentiation to the market. In this session, we will look at the risk management activities that organizations are employing to create greater visibility and control in supplier management, building better relationships, and encouraging the supply chain to participate in the quality management process, while limiting risks along the way.
“ISO 9001 is used by millions of people and organisations around the world and the upcoming 2015 revision will have a big impact on those who work with the standard.
The impact of this revision will be similar to, if not greater than the 2000 edition, which was a major change for accreditation bodies, certification bodies, training organisations, implementing organisations, procurement organisations, consultants and customers.”
