SCRM University: Introduction to SCRM

The quickly evolving landscape of supply chain risk management (SCRM) requires organizations to develop strong programs that can anticipate and mitigate a variety of risks. That includes monitoring for geopolitical risk, trade wars, industrial espionage, modern slavery, climate change and cyber threats in the face of social media and a 24/7 news cycle. We know it can be overwhelming, especially without foundational knowledge of core supply chain management, so Exiger experts created this introductory video series to help upskill your team.
