The smooth, consistent operation of your company's supply chain--from procurement through delivery, and everything in between--is directly tied to cash flow, profitability, and growth, as well as essential factors such as customer trust, stakeholder confidence, and the protection of the brand. When the unexpected occurs--whether it's in the form of environmental disaster, social disruptions such as strikes or sabotage, an accident that affects production, failure on the part of a supplier, terrorist attack, or the loss of a key staff member--your production and productivity can be ground to a halt, often with dire consequences. Yet despite growing awareness, many business continuity plans still fail to properly account for incidents affecting the supply chain. Filled with powerful assessment tools, detailed disaster-preparedness checklists and scenarios, and instructive case studies in supply chain reliability, A Supply Chain Management Guide to Business Continuity focuses on supply chain business continuity within the framework of your over-all business continuity program.

While the author, a consultant with the Disaster Recovery Institute International, does a good job offering an overview of how to identify risks and subsequently reduce or eliminate the incidence of supply chain disruptions, what sets this book apart is its supplemental material. Ultimately, unforeseen disasters are always going to happen, but this book provides plenty of tactical advice on how to mitigate the effects of those disasters.
