The IRM is delighted to announce the addition of the new Supply Chain Risk Management Certificate to our portfolio of qualifications.

This qualification introduces the concepts of supply chain risk management and equips risk practitioners and others involved in managing their supply chains with the ability to apply their risk management knowledge in a world where value is increasingly added via the supply chain.
It explains how globalised outsourcing, digital disruption,specialisation and just-in-time delivery are changing the risk in supply chains for many organisations. It looks at how appropriate risk management tools and techniques can be applied, adapted and developed in an increasing digital context. The qualification provides a broad understanding of supply chain risk management principles and practices.
Socrates Coudounaris, BEng (Hons) MSc FCII CFIRM, Chair of the IRM explains: “Our new qualification will help organisations of all types understand and manage their supply chain risks.
No organisation can manage risk in isolation. Everyone has not only a supply chain but also an entire extended enterprise that determines their risk environment. Globalisation, digital technology  and business disruption also mean that these environments are becoming more complex. Risk professionals need to be on top of this issue.”
