Protect your supply chain with a continuity plan

Comment
If you want to avoid a disruption in your supply chain operation, then you'd better develop a business-continuity plan, says Betty A. Kildow in her new book, A Supply Chain Management Guide to Business Continuity.

If you want to avoid a disruption in your supply chain operation, then you'd better develop a business-continuity plan, says Betty A. Kildow in her new book, A Supply Chain Management Guide to Business Continuity.

A certified businesscontinuity professional, Kildow has been consulting in this area for more than 18 years. She draws on her experience to describe how companies should construct coordinated businesscontinuity programs that encompass the entire supply chain, including suppliers, contractors, and service providers.

In the book, Kildow discusses ways to identify potential risks, threats, and hazards throughout the supply chain, paying particular attention to the vulnerabilities created by today's leaner supply chains, changing technology, and global operations. She also describes specific strategies for avoiding inherited risks as well as approaches to lessening the impact of unavoidable disruptions. Finally, she details ways to develop, test, document, and maintain workable continuity plans.

Published by the American Management Association, the hardcover edition of A Supply Chain Management Guide to Business Continuity (ISBN: 978-0-8144-1645- 7) sells for US $35.00.
