Stop Chasing World Events

Speaker: Jim Evans, Texas Instruments

After the Japan earthquake and Thailand flood, customers are putting more pressure on suppliers to provide responses to world events that are happening every day. End customers are monitoring their supply chain almost to a level of paranoia, and, at the end of the day, are not focusing on the right things to mitigate their supply chain risk. This session encourages BC professionals to stop chasing events and start migrating supply chain risks by using business impact analysis data to truly drive supply chain mitigation solutions.
