In April 2013, APQC conducted a survey to test the extent to which supply chain executives and finance managers at larger global organizations are concerned about three macro level, 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 white paper contains insights from the research collected from 196 organizations and looks at methods to further mitigate supply chain risk.
