Webinar on Global Supply Chain Risk Assessment – Thursday, April 23

The University of Tennessee Knoxville’s Global Supply Chain Institute (GSCI) is hosting a webinar to launch their EPIC Global Supply Chain Risk Assessment Report.

The webinar will be hosted Thursday, April 23 at 12:00 PM EST and will be led by GSCI faculty members Ted Stank and Shay Scott, CSCMP, and IHS Markit.

Managing constant change is all in a day’s work for supply chain professionals, but success doesn’t happen without thoughtful planning. “Operating in the global environment is becoming increasingly complex, especially for supply chain professionals,” Stank said. “To increase global competitiveness, professionals need to be armed with a solid strategy to assess risk.”

To determine supply chain readiness, the EPIC Index assesses risks and measures supply chain capability in key markets around the globe by evaluating a holistic set of dynamics that contribute to supply chain performance.

  • · E: Economy – economic output of the country, its potential for future growth
  • · P: Politics – political landscape and how well it nurtures supply chain activity
  • · I: Infrastructure – transportation, utility and telecommunications
  • · C: Competence – skill levels of workforce and support industries available
