Following up on our successful NDIA Supply Chain Summit, “Defense Supply Chain Economic Issues Amid Volatility,” we now focus on the imperatives that are driving businesses large and small to invest in supply chain risk management processes. You’ll hear from senior industry and defense leaders about the challenges they face to ensure their suppliers can help them meet customer requirements. Our presenters will discuss approaches to identifying supply chain risks and then developing strategies to manage those risks. This event will address the full spectrum of the supply chain, including planning, sourcing, making and delivering.

- Better position your organization to identify and address supply chain risk.
- Learn how to leverage your risk management strategies to win more business.

Professionals in supply chain or supplier management, purchasing, procurement, cost analysis, product management, logistics and operations.

Supply chain associations focus on developing best practices that are highly beneficial to supply chain professionals. NDIA’s Supply Chain Series focuses particularly on the supply chain where it intersects with national security. NDIA members are concerned about reforming evolving government regulations and strengthening industrial defense supply
chains. All of these activities impact a company’s supply chain processes and practices.

NDIA’s Supply Chain Series will clearly articulate the value of supply chain management in national security, which is enhanced by better managing supply chains across the entire defense industrial base.
This first event, "Strategies for Creating Value Amid Volatility," provided senior leadership the high-level information needed to create an organizational supply chain strategy to benefit both their business and national security. 

The second event, "Investing in Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM)," will provide supply chain professionals, purchasing managers, and cost analysts insight into the types of risk found in supply chains for national defense products, how this risk impacts the value and economics of business and national security, and how this risk can be managed to deliver better performance.

The third event, "Defeating the Threats," will provide supply chain professionals, program managers, and systems engineers an understanding of how decisions made in the early stages of a program can mitigate or avoid threats to product performance and delivery, as well as national security threats that could be embedded in their products through supply chain manipulation.
