How far down the supply chain businesses look will depend on the business-critical nature of the supplies in question, but the high incidence of disruptions from below tier one should prompt firms into action. According to Zurich’s research, working with the Business Continuity Institute in 2014, around 50% of supply chain disruptions come from suppliers in tier 2 or below. The fact they are not direct suppliers makes it more difficult for medium-sized businesses to analyse these suppliers, but the number of disruptions they account for shows just how important it is to generate this improved level of understanding. At the moment businesses are still not doing enough to understand their supply chain risks at a level that will really allow them to employ appropriate and effective risk mitigation strategies, reduction transferral and retention strategies.

Making Remote Procurement Work: Strategies and Tools to Manage Business as Usual in An Unusual New World

In a recent article in CPO Strategy by lain Campbell-McKenna, he rightfully pointed out that remote working is not a new thing. The idea of working from home was “more of a concept along the lines of the four-day workweek and flex-hours, hence was promising but not necessarily practical on a large scale.” With COVID-19 it is a whole new ball game. We are all, as Campbell-McKenna put it “for now, and the foreseeable future together on our own.” How do we then move beyond our comfort zones to adopt new strategies, practices, and tools to deliver a higher level of expectation?
