Flood Disruption - This Week in Supply Chain Management (43 / 2011)

Rating of news Items

Happy 200!
This is my 200th article on the SCRM Blog.
One of my goals for this year was to build a good foundation on supply chain management for you, the readers, to be able to browse through a collection of great articles on supply chain risk management, and related topics.

The rising number of reviews made it possible to have a separate category on SCRM Introduction. In nearly 20 articles I wrote about topics, like:

  • supply chain management in general (1, 2) and supply chain strategies (1, 2),
  • early risk related literature and the Bullwhip-Effect,
  • risk management in supply chains (1, 3, 3, 3, 5),
  • categorization of risks and management (1, 2, 3) and
  • special risks like disruptions (1, 2)

But these article only make up 10% of the now 200 articles published during the last 23 month!
If you are curious to learn more about supply chain risk management, just browse the archive or have a look at the categories and popular tags in the sidebar.
