Supply chains need to be more resilient as disruptions are widespread
from Business Continuity Institute via SupplyChainBrain
The sources of supply chain failure are deeply rooted, says a survey from the Business Continuity Institute. Respondents from 62 countries revealed that 85 percent of organizations recorded at least one supply chain disruption in 2011 with 40 percent of analyzed disruption originating below the immediate supplier. The survey, now in its third year, emphasizes the need for a higher priority to be assigned to developing resilient supply chains in the face of systemic vulnerabilities and unpredictable disruptive events.
