The Synergia Foundation is collaborating with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to conduct a study of Supply Chain Risk Management under the MIT SCALE (Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence) Global Risk Initiative. Our current research aims at providing a deeper understanding of how regional and cultural differences affect how people think about and manage supply chain risks.
We are now conducting a global survey of experiences and attitudes toward Supply Chain Risks and Risk Management. The survey is being conducted among supply chain professionals across North America, Europe, China, India, Africa, and Latin America in manufacturing, retail, and distribution companies. Through this survey, we seek to gauge the importance of risk prevention, event response and control points, understand risk and disruption frequencies and understand what companies do to address these risks.
