Supply Chain Risk Management is a practical learning resource assessing the various sources of external threats 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, with each case documenting the company’s supply chain or production strategy, and outlining the catastrophic event which occurred.
