While most executives believe supply chain risk management is a priority, there is a small group of leaders who employ three practices that help generate a significant risk management ROI.
We surveyed more than 1,000 senior executives from large global companies to get their views on the impact of operations and supply chain risk on their organization, how they are managing this risk and the benefits their supply chain risk management practices are generating.
More than 50 percent of the surveyed executives said their company is boosting investment in risk management within the supply chain function by up to 20 percent, and another 25 percent said they are increasing spending by 20 percent or more.
We found that while the companies are taking different approaches to supply chain risk management, nearly all executives reported generating a positive ROI from their supply chain risk management investments. However, we also found a small group of risk management leaders that have experienced a supply chain risk management ROI that exceeded 100 percent.
