Following extensive research by the BCI, the Supply Chain Resilience – 10 Year Trend Analysis Report answers a number of key questions for organizations around the resilience of their supply chain, in terms of what the current and emerging key risks are, and what organizations can learn from the past 10 years of research.
The report also supports risk and supply chain managers in the identification and assessment of various scenarios and, while not all risks can be avoided, the information will help develop effective loss mitigation and reduction strategies.
The Supply Chain Resilience – 10 Year Trend Analysis Report mirrors the findings of the BCI’s most recent Horizon Scan report and highlights how novel disruptive threats have grown out of the new technologies that drive economic activity.
Among the reports key findings:
- 5 percent of organizations experienced a disruption in 2018 compared to 72.3 percent in 2010
- Unplanned IT and telecommunication outages, as well as adverse weather, cyber attacks, data breaches, and loss of talent/skills rate among the highest causes of disruption
- The number of organizations requesting alignment to a business continuity standard has increased from 36.5 percent in 2012 to 51.0 percent in 2018.
- Top management commitment to managing supply chain risk remains low
The report is available for download through the BCI.
