With this article I’d like to wrap up the week for myself and share the most interesting articles I read in the last seven days. This week the World Economic Forum in Davos started, with more references to supply chain risk management tasks than I expected. So maybe there might be the start for a new emphasis on these risks also in the board rooms.

  • I finally came around to read the report on “New Models for Addressing Supply Chain and Transport Risk” published by the World Economic Forum. If you haven’t had a look yet, you can still do so (for free). ( WEForum)
  • Jan Husdal summarizes another report by the WE Forum on Global Risks, which can be found here. ( husdal.com)
  • Supply chain risk management is also an issue on governmental levels: “Obama Orders Strategy for Protecting Nation’s Supply Chain”. ( Bloomberg)
Already tweeted

There are also some article I already tweeted during the week. You can follow me on twitter.

  • A view by Ken Simpson on two different risk reports: … perception risk (where you stand determines what you see). http://t.co/CHSin9am
  • Are you a + member with the SCM Review? Then you might be interested in the article “Risk Management: Welcome to the New Normal” http://t.co/gV2qnnMP
  • Davos: World needs better supply chain risk management http://t.co/g0DVzyTg

Hope you enjoy your weekend!
