As a supply chain professor who teaches the subject, I have been looking for a book that is thorough, has a solid conceptual framework and is very practical to address the learning requirements of30-35 year old MBAs that I teach. This is the book I have been looking for. I spent part of my Christmas immersed in the book's rich philosophy, deep executive perspectives and the globe-spanning case examples the author uses to illustrate the core concept of risk as a virus constantly evolving to attack the supply chain. Given the dynamic and multi-faceted nature of this threat (which he so vividly presents), it is entirely appropriate that a major emphasis in the text is on methods for generating and diffusing risk awareness throughout the organization. The sense of urgency conveyed in the book is directly linked to the vast experience with hundreds of organizations that the author brings. he has seen it firsthand.

The essential laws of supply chain risk management contained in the chapters all seek to to address the goal of getting the organization to acknowledge risk, create a "risk paradigm" for its specific business that defines the organization's risk drivers and stakeholderexpectations and pushes managers to break through inertia and take action. Taking action is the key for survival in a global economy that the author describes as still tenuous and fragile in its trade relationships across the supply chain. This is a text not only for students but for executives in international businesses who want to get ahead of the risk curve and get ready for that next inevitable shock.

Product Description:
Over the past decade organizations have faced relentless customer demand for better value at less cost, individual customization, greater choice, faster delivery, higher quality, exceptional service, and more recently - increased environmental and social consciousness. The organization's weapon of choiceto address this increasing demand has been the supply chain. However, as the supply chain footprint changed (e.g. outsourcing, off-shoring and customer/vendor empowerment) so did the organization's exposure to uncertainty. Organizations were taken by surprise since this exposure was unanticipated, complex and beyond their ability to manage. As customers become more demanding and change occurs at an even greater pace, supply chain risk continues to propagate like a parasite. Organizations and societies are at much greater risk of systemic failure because of the massive interdependency throughout global supply chains. The priority now is two-fold; play catch-up and address these massive gaps while deploying more intelligent and integrated strategies (i.e. social aware, instinctive, dynamic and predictive) for dealing with continuous change.
Single Point of Failure: The 10 Essential Laws of Supply Chain Risk Managementuses analogies and dozens of case histories to describe the risk parasitethat infects all supply chains while revealing methods to neutralize that parasite. The book addresses the questions: What are the "single points of failure"? How exposed are customers, investors, other stakeholders and ultimately the organization? What is the measurable impact (i.e. brand, financial, strategic, and non-compliance)? Who establishes the "risk paradigm"? How does the organization efficiently and effectively allocate precious resources - time, people, management attention, and capital? How is success measured? This book is both technically powerful and effectively realistic, based on today's complex global economy.
