In April 2013, APQC conducted a survey to test the extent to which supply chain executives and finance managers at large global organizations are concerned about three external risk factors to supply chain stability:

  • High-impact natural disasters such as major tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, or floods;
  • Extreme weather such as devastating droughts, wildfires, or cyclones; and
  • Political turmoil in vitally important world regions.

This summary report provides the results of the survey, with aggregated data from 196 different organizations.
