March Professional Development Meeting:  
Eight Principles of Supply Chain Risk Management
Speaker:  Chris Kushmaul, Director of Supply Chain Solutions, IDV Solutions 

How do you deal with big data? How can global events impact your company’s bottom line? How do you shift from reacting to problems to anticipating risks and dealing with them early? Stop detecting and responding and start anticipating and preventing threats to your supply chain by following these guidelines. 

Chris shares the insights learned during his 14 years of managing global supply chains. You will come away with actionable suggestions to improve your risk preparedness.
