Supply Chains: Mitigating Risk and Minimizing Consequences.

you can control risk, not uncertainty.
  • Lack of Quality Service Protocol and systemic risk management processes.
  • Changes in Domestic and foreign regulation (BREXIT, E.U regulations, trade disputes, and import/export duty.)
  • Variability in raw material prices. (For example, new markets entrants and industry effectuate an increase in raw material pricing.)
  • Labor Issues (labor unions, collective bargaining, etc.)
  • Net present value and future value of supply chain outflows.
  • General economic issues, especially when economic policy meets liquidity issues (recession, stagflation, and expansionary policy.)
  • Potential supply risks in higher-risk places (For example, nuances associated with B.R.I.C nation-states.)
  • Supply chain data efficacy and protections, including initiatives to reduce information flow dissonance and data breach protocols *(Intellectual property, end-user information, and business are tradable assets and should be protected accordingly.)*
  • Lower aggregate demand for products manufactured. (The phenomenon is often consequential of ineffective operations and inefficient supply-chain logistics.)
  • Business interruptions (nation-state attacks, trans-oceanic conflict, tariff/border issues.)
